The Original PSX Controller. :)

You can find adaptors to hook it in a PC.

"Thrustmaster Firestorm Dual Power Gamepad"

That's my fav for it. It's got for the most part the same layout as the original dual shock controllers.

Has the "R3" & "L3" buttons by pushing in the analog sticks (so you can play Ape Escape :))

A bit larger (good for my big hands).

A bit heavier.

Only one face button that you can use as "start".

Two additional buttons for your ring -or- middle fingers (depending on how you hold it. Sounds weird but they are lower than the top two shoulder buttons, and on their own "step", and it isn't uncomfortable). I use the left one for my select button.

And the d-pad IMO is better than Sony's Dual Shock Controller.

I personally prefer playing with this controller more than I do playing on my PSone or PS2 controllers. The analog sticks aren't as stiff, my hands don't feel so cramped together, & the grip on the gamepad is much better.

I'm using a Microsoft Sidewinder gamepad... it's ok works fine. But I really doubt that there's a better controller than the actual psx dual shock gamepad! :p

I personally like the Gravis GamePad Pro USB. It is exactly like the digital-only psx pad, so no ape escape. I have also manufactured a few adapters for the dual shock controller, and am currently prototyping a 5.25 bay interface featuring 2 mem card readers and 2 joy plugs. I plan on making a webpage to show off my stuff, but haven't gotten around to it.

Well I happen to be an amateur pc board designer, and I love to design boards. The interface for the dpad is dpadpro - its a shame they stopped updating the software. and I am working on modifying the dex drive circuitry. I am not familiar with playsaver though, what is it?

I did a google search for playsaver, and found the site. it is a much simpler design than dex drive, I will need to look into it.

the playsaver is a DIY dexdrive device. the only problem is that the drivers are dos based so they dont work very well in 2k/xp. it would be really interesting if someone could work out a way to update all these drivers to the nt kernel, especially the dpadpro since the nt version floating around is a hack of an old driver. i know theres a "giveio" type driver thing but i could never get it to work.

Well the playsaver circuit is actually quite simple, i would prefer to support that software than dex drive.

I'm using a Logitech Wingman RumblePad it's more like a saturn controller but i like it so when i switch to a Fighting game i don't have to mess with the buttons to much plus it has analog. I barely use it though.

The standard Microsoft SideWinder with ten buttons does pretty well. I concur with Felipe's thoughts, though.
I also have a Sidewinder Gamepad Pro, it's pretty good too.

And I have a sh**ty Genius Maxfire g-09d... No win2k or xp support, pretty bad if you ask me. Only bought it because I didn't knew how bad it was... At least has 10 buttons, so I can play with digital controler in PSX.
