If you’ve got the technical knowledge to tinker with the firmware on the Datafrog SF2000, the end result can be a device that feels far better than the $25 it costs. But if you’re looking to give this as a gift to a novice, this may not be the best option for a plug-and-play device because of the significant out-of-the-box issues it has.
Comparing the form factor of the RG FC250 to the RS-60, the FC250 is considerably larger. The shell is about a half inch wider, but the depth is about 4x that of the RS-60. That comes with benefits, though. The first thing I noticed was that the D-pad and action buttons had considerable depth and travel to them.
