Long lasting quality made controller
18 December 2012
Summary: I bought this controller back in 2005 and am still using them on a daily basis with my HTPC. They have been used in a number of situations from gaming on a PC with emulators, being used as a remote for my HTPC, and surviving a number of moves. These are just as, if not more, durable than the PlayStation controllers they are shaped after. I have used both regular and rechargeable batteries in them without incident over the years.
Summary: Although this is a new purchase, and I've only used it for just over a month, it is the single best game controller I've had for my PC. I have several other Logitech devices in use on the 2 PC's in my home, and both have been performing flawlessly for over 2 years. This game controller was a stretch for me, I've never had much faith in cordless hardware.
Summary: This is a great controller. The included disk is fine for Vista installation, but with Windows 7, it just starts working within seconds of plugging it in for the first time! The response is excellent and the range is great for my needs (less than 20 feet). My only complaint, a minor one at that, is that the vibration doesn't work with any of the games I have.
Summary: I use it to play arcade, nintendo super nes and nintendo 64 emulation games, works great, good signal, plug n play, did not need to install included driver, fairly good price too. Wished the dongle was just a USB flash drive size receiver, instead of the double condom size box on a short cable.
Summary: These controllers are awesome. They feel a little bit big and slightly heavy but they are made very durable and the D-Pad is awesome! The best part is they also work for the PS3 if you hook up the receiver via usb on the PS3. They work great for me as additional controllers for the PS3 and sometimes I prefer to use them over my DS3 controllers. They are lag free and the connection never drops on me. Great for fighting games!
Summary: I bought this gamepad for about $25 with shipping brand new. It's built very well and has buttons for pretty much any function you need, though I mainly have only used it for emulators. I play N64 and SNES games on my computer and the controller works well playing Goldeneye, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, etc. The wireless funtionality works well, it seems to be very smart about power conservation, as you can see from other reviews the batteries last a good while.
Summary: I upgraded to this from a Logitech Precision USB gamepad (which in itself is a fantastic buy) and couldn't be happier. I basically grew tired of being teethered to my PC, even though the Precision's cord is plenty long, it's still a hassle. Now after just a few weeks of using the Rumblepad 2, I could never go back -- cordless is the way to go. The gamepad works flawlessly with almost every game I've tried it with.
Summary: I love this game pad. I have worn out 4 of them. I will continue to buy this pad till it becomes unavailable. Yes I play games on my computer that much. I don't like wireless game pads they use batteries. So if anyone from logitech is reading this review. Don't stop making these. I'm sure I will need another one soon. I don't know what else to say to encourage you to buy this product. Hey don't buy it. That will leave more of them for me.
Summary: After connecting my desktop via HDMI to my 42" Sony Bravia 3LCD I wanted to play my PC games (and N53 EMU games!) at high-res just like my PS3. This is the answer. The Software could be more graphic, I don't like the long menus you have to click through to assign the buttons. The directions are crap, the booklet is useless and it took me some time and frustration to set up. But, that being said, the controler is great.
Summary: I tend to like most of my purchases, and this controller is definitely one of them. It's ergonomic, heavy (thus stable), highly sensitive, and has a nice feeling in the hands. Battery life is acceptable, and its layout goes well with many games. Basically it has what I want from a good controller. I'd been exclusively using this controller (I had two different ones as well), until I got an Xbox 360 one .
