Well unlike you guys, I'm not tough on my controllers! I haven't had a single controller fail, except my turbo controller floats, but that's cause I rubber band the sticks. Those sticks are just tight bands in there and if you leave those extended for hours on end they are bound to have problems.
Man I wish I could replace that one, it's best turbo controller I've ever had and it's Gamestop branded!

So, yeah, they all feel the same to me.
This is why my two favorite controllers ever were the original Duke:
And this Dreamcast 3rd party controller:
