Blows Battery Acid, Dpad ineffective, Analogs twitch.

Christine B. Hajek "Bunny", Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: As the title of my review indicates, the Cordless rumblepad Blows Battery Acid all over the inside of the battery case whether or not you leave it on or off. The Dpad is ineffective due to inaccuracy of a Disk design. The 6 buttons on the upper surface were a little too tall and slowed down reaction times. The 3 Analogs twitch (ther is a third analog on the top right.

Works With Win7

Chad Biggerstaff, Amazon
4 September 2009
  • Summary: I just got Street Fighter 4 and needed a 6 button controller, so I went scavenging my closet and found this old Wingman controller and to my pleasant surprise it worked in Win 7 RC 64-bit no drivers needed. Not many products have the longevity of this one. I haven't (as of yet) gotten the rumble to work with SF4. The controls feel good but not great. I've never had a pc joystick work this long (especially the drivers).

Gamepad with a throttle! Genius!

Chewd, Amazon
5 November 2008
  • Summary: I dont know why noone else ever made (and continues not to make) a gamepad with a throttle. This is the only one I've ever found, and on top of that seemingly obvious yet incredibly rare feature it is also a well built sturdy unit. I have had 3 of these over the years. They have all worked flawlessly, only ceasing to function due to dog attacks (severely chewed) or battery malfunction. One of them lives in my laptop bag, and has endured years of abuse there.

Best Gamepad ever made! End of Story

Rykion Prangh "Rykion", Amazon
16 April 2008
  • Summary: I've owned two of these great controllers for over six years and have never had an issue with either. They calibrate just fine in Windows XP, with either the default Windows XP drivers or Logitech's. Having 11 buttons I can map a game to, plus the POV, two analog directional sticks and the slider control is a MUST. I don't understand why logitech went to a WORSE design.

Great gamepad!

B. Adams, Amazon
16 August 2005
  • Summary: This is my second Logitech Rumblepad. The first one I bought many years ago when it was first released. It has been the best at all EA Sports titles and racing games. I had to purchase a new gamepad because I spilled something sticky by one of the buttons, so it doesn't always pop back up when pressed. Its hard to find these now because Logitech has introduced a new Rumblepad but it only has 4 buttons on the top and I'm used to the old model which has 6.

Dead Stick

G. Davenport "Lost Crow", Amazon
6 July 2005
  • Summary: Yup, the left analag stick failed for me too - which now causes my character to run left at random times while playing GTA. Up until that it was a great pad. Weight is not an issue, the batteries lasted long enough, and the number of buttons and triggers was perfect for GTA.

Flawed, but probably closest to perfect out there

M. Walker "M.C. Walker", Amazon
6 September 2004
  • Summary: The Logitech Cordless Wingman rumblepad is quite the gamepad. And, I love it. It's not perfect, but it is very close. Sure, the pad is heavy, and some people might find it a bit large, but that doesn't get in the way. The programming software i very simple, well thought out and intuitive. You can tell the designers actually used it. The pad has plenty of buttons, all of the programmable. I get heavy MAME use out of it, and it works wonderfully.

I love my wingman!

Christopher Barrett "cmbadass", Amazon
22 July 2004
  • Summary: I love this thing. It plays better than any corded pad I own. Pros: Dual analog, rumble capabilities, and a digital pad. Triggers. Four of them. Excellent range and it's as responsive as a corded pad. Cons: Batteries. You need four of them (AA) I work around that by using rechargebles. It's heavy. Before trashing this thing due to compatability problems, go to logitec's website and get the newer drivers. They fixed any problems I had with my wingman.

Neat concept. Poor Execution.

Thesam, Amazon
11 June 2004
  • Summary: The Logitech Cordless Rumblepad is a neat concept, but it sadly, hardly delivers. The buttons and sticks do have a nice feel to them, and are quite responsive, but the problem lies in the design itself. First and foremost, would be the shape and weight. Being cordless, it requires quite a number of AA batteries. No one wants to play video games using an ungainly controller that weighs sixty-four pounds.
