Summary: I have had mine for over a year and it still works(no button failure anyway) but it is too small for my hands. If you have large hands and play Return of the King then you'll be sorry, I promise. I have cramps in my thumb-to-index finger tendons and last night my right arm went numb. Find another controller if using extensively. Works better in flight sims where you don't have to have a click-click dexterity fest to beat your foes.(Hmm Richard Garriot said that!
Summary: I love these pads. I've been using them for almost two years and have been happy enough with them to not only recommend them to friends, but I give them as gifts to my gaming nephews. The problem is the sliders come off quite easily. While they snap back on just as easy, I have lost at least two while traveling after they came off in my baggage. I wish logitech would offer replacements by the dozen cheapley.
Summary: Logitech is well known for its Mice, Keyboards, speakers, and now game controllers. its Wingman series is pretty good with joysticks and gamepads. while you can play FPS with this controller (dual analog, one stick for movement and the other for view), it really isn't recommended. if you play sports games, then a gamepad is really needed, but for most games, just save money and keep that keyboard and mouse.
Excerpt: "...hey, you can't have everything. The Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2 ( I never saw the first but never mind) is a robust little pad. I have pretty large hands, and all the controls just sit in the right place. It has an 8 way directional pad/pov hat, two analogut controllers with integrated buttons, a further 10 buttons including four shoulder buttons and two on the centre console. Stylistically it resembles a slightly more chunky PS2 controller but ...
Pros: Good design, not too expensive, simple installation .
Cons: Force feedback doesn't work properly, only average battery life .
Excerpt: "Reason for buying =============== I needed a replacement for my Thrustmaster Firestorm joypad, which I had tried to repair due to sticking buttons but it was getting past it. I saw a nest of these in PC world for under £20 so decided to gie it a go: I play a few driving sims on the PC and havent really the room for a wheel. The again, I did have a large wheel for the PS2 and always struggled to keep a straight line with it. I've always found ...
Summary: Vorwort: Hi, Nun mal ein Bericht über das Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2. Es gibt wirklich viel Funktion her die man bei einfacheren Pads nicht hat. Klar gibt es auch bessere die noch mehr Technik mitbringen bzw. vom esign her noch schöner sind aber dieses hier gibt schon manche überaschungen von sich. Kaufen kann man es sich entweder im Internet bei Ebay oder aber auch in Elektronikläden.
Summary: Ingen tidigare erfarenhet av moderna gamepads eller konsoller men är nöjd med denna. Den fyller en viss nisch bland PC-spel. (+) Bra ergonomi, bra pris (290+frakt), gediget bygge som enligt uppgift håller till skillnad från billiga konkurrenter. (-) Dåligt stöd i en del spel. Gäller iofs de flesta gamepads. Skärpning speltillverkare. Det är besynnerligt att konvertera ett spel från konsoll och glömma att ta med stöd för gamepad.
