I finally got the chance to use a NGX stick. As someone who has logged hours upon hours on original AES sticks, this thing feels cheaper than cheap. They nailed the look (especially the box, very cool touch) but I was incredibly disappointed with the build quality. It's lighter than air, the ball top is somehow worse than the original, buttons feel like they will pop off at anytime, the cable is like angel hair spagetti. Bottom line, this shit is false.
I don't think the original is all that great either compared to something like the hori Neo stick but it is leaps and bounds better than this shoddy repro. Money saved.
