    a nice review to a great pad!

    I bought this to play vice city with and it worked brilliantly, although we did spend a long time setting up the profile to do exactly what we wanted!

    another recommendation.

    nice pad!

    Can you actually test them out at your computer shop? Damn, I wish we had one of those around here... we wouldn't be able to test them even if the lives of the sales-people dependent on it.

    ...damn them!

    I have been looking for a good PC pad for ages now, but have so far come up blank. Every single PC pad I have ever seen only seems to have digital shoulder buttons, except for an old Gravis pad I have which is just generally rubbish anyway.

    Analog shoulder butters really a requirement for playing racing games. A throttle or analog stick is no good because you need to be able to left foot break (break and accelerate at the same time).

    The best solution I have found so far is to use an XBox pad. The "S" version isn't too bad, although it still pales in comparison to the Dreamcast pad. There is an adaptor to conenct DC pads to the PC, but it makes the shoulder buttons digital instead of analog :(

    Not normally, over here PC world hae them all out on display so you can get a feel for them, but not actually use them in a game. Ive never understood how Nintendo can come up with a comfy pad for all of their systems (the n64 one was genius) when its very hard to find a PC pad that doesn't give you cramp.

    Dunno since I have no flight sims to test it but I see no reason to doubt its suitability and the Trottle control was designed primarily for flight sims. I would guess it is as good as any other pad I have see and better than most.

    Are you sure this is £20 ?? Everywhere I've looked is around £35 and £23 for the non-cordless.

    OK, I eat my words - PC World do indeed have them on a special sale price of £19.99 (can't belive people are selling these on ebay for 30 + p&p, time to make some money maybe....)

    Anyone know if the price is the same in-store ?

    Went to PC World lunch time - but they were out of stock, popped next door to currys and they had them marked at 29.99, but when I asked for them to check the price it came up at 19.99.

    Excellent value for money (even if I can't get the rumble to work in Simpsons Hit and Run, it does work in NFSU)

    Thanks for the review bit-tech.

    lol i just got the pad today cause omega took ages delivering.... this is real nice, can any one tell me how to get the imported profiles working cause i can't seem to get them going when i import them, the controllers just stay as they are and nothing seems to change??? it's gonna be a pain haves to config everygame otherwise.... only nfsu works perfect without n e config needed.... wanna be able to play nwn and gta:vc with it. :D :rock:

    oh yeah guys, logitech profiler is now on version 4.30 instead of the 4.25 which comes with the pad, u can get the driver download from their site.
