Originally a birthday present in 1998. Handed-down to my younger siblings after I got my Gamecube. Got most of the games back when I got my PS2. Later got my Sister's PS1 and controllers to play my old games on. It is still having issues after a spindle hub replacement.
In 2018 or 2019, I bought another one on eBay because mine was unreliable. It was reported tested and working, but didn't work when I got it. I contacted the seller, who immediately gave me a refund. I later fiddled it with a bit and it started working fine, and has worked since.
