Best low price MFi controller?

Merry Christmas all!

I think I got a controller for the iPad.

However I refuse to pay 50 ($75) for one. Which are the best of the budget models?

Definitely go with the Mad Catz Micro C.T.R.L i. It is affordable and very well put together. I have been using it for a week now and I love it. Played Oceanhorn, Monster Hunter, Nubs, Final Fantasy 7 and a few other games already. Loving it! I read several great reviews before picking it up. Only downfall is it requires 2 AAA batteries. But I have rechargeable batteries, so no sweat!

These are still over my budget

Anything else for half the price?

The best available options are the SteelSeries Nimbus and the Horipad Ultimate.

Seems like the Nimbus is the only one available in the UK Appe Store store right now:

It's 39.95, and worth it.

The PXN Speedy is also 39.95 on Amazon right now. It isn't quite as good for iPad gamers, but it's still excellent.

If you want to spend a lot more money, the Gamevice is excellent, but it's a lot more than 49.

Avoid others in this price range. The Nimbus, Horipad Ultimate, and PXN Speedy are far better than previous-generation controllers, even though you might be able to find them a few pounds cheaper.
