NES compatible controllers

Can anyone recommend some decent & cheap third party NES controllers? It's been years since I had an NES and with my AVS coming this week it occurred to me that I need some controllers. I have a Famicom but those controllers are attached to the console. I hear the Tomy and Retro-bit controllers are a bit rubbish. The Cirka N85 gets ok reviews. Would love to hear your thoughts.

You can still get OEM NES controllers on eBay for 10-15 bucks.

 

Yeah, I saw that. I guess that I was thinking that the new 3rd party controllers go for less than that, they're unused and not 25-30 years old. Hoping that one or two of the brands might be good alternatives to a used OEM controller.

I have one of these:

 

https://www.amazon.com/NES-Controller-Generic-Nintendo-Entertainment-System/dp/B000UCF9TA/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1473607827&sr=8-11&keywords=ttx+tech+controller

 

And it's been fine. It is the exact same size as a real NES controller, and it feels the same to me. 

 

I'm guessing anything you find on Amazon that has decent reviews is going to be ok.
