Review: Saitek Cyborg Command Unit

JusTech'n
29 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The Saitek Cyborg Command Unit is going to have a hard time finding a niche that it fits into because it is trying to do what a keyboard and mouse already do. If you travel with your computer a lot and you find your keyboard too big then this might work for you. If you find a place for the Command Unit in your gaming and are willing to take the time to program all the keys to fit your games then you will enjoy this.

Saitek Cyborg Command Unit

CNET
21 February 2008
  • Summary: Eminently configurable keys and a surprisingly useful analog stick make the Cyborg Command Unit one of the nicer gaming pads we've seen, but it's still a matter of personal taste whether it can or should replace your keyboard.
  • Pros: Flexible configuration for shooters, strategy, and role-playing games; handy analog thumb stick; colorful backlighting; adjustable ergonomics.
  • Cons: Command profiles must be reloaded every time the computer is restarted or the pad is plugged in; for right-handed users only.

Saitek Cyborg Command Unit Review

I4U News
1 August 2007
  • Summary: Verdict If I were a heavy LAN partygoers I could certainly see the desire for a device like this. As a gamer that only plays at a large desk, I prefer to stick with my gaming keyboard. However, gamers playing in a small confined area will probably like the Saitek Cyborg Command Unit as well.
  • Pros: Three shift modes, Easy to program, Backlit well
  • Cons: USB cable was too short for my needs, Takes some getting used to

Test: Saitek Cyborg Command Unit

Gamereactor
4 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Jeg har tidligere testet produkter der skilte sig meget ud fra vores sædvanlige forestilling om hvordan et tastatur så ud. Dengang kiggede jeg på Zboards Fang, og Denne gang er det så en gamingtilpasset controllerløsning fra Saitek der har fundet vej til Gamereactors testlaboratorium. Hvor Fang er en gigantisk plastikklump som overtager hele skrivebordspladsen, er Saiteks Command Unit en mere raffineret opfindelse.
  • Pros: Flot, ligger stabilt på skrivebordet
  • Cons: Visse knapper er svære at nå, underlig "trykfornemmelse"

Saitek Cyborg Command Unit

11 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Vi har tidigare testat Zboards Fang, som också vill slita dig från det vanliga tangentbordet och istället erbjuda en helt gaminganpassad kontrollösning. Den här gången är det Saitek som kastar sin Cyborg Command Unit till vargarna i Gamereactors testlabb. Där Fang är en gigantisk bit plast som tar stor del av skrivbordet i anspråk är Saiteks Command Unit en smäckrare uppenbarelse.
  • Pros: Snygg, ligger stabilt på skrivbordet
  • Cons: Vissa knappar är svåra att nå, diffus knappkänsla
