Summary: This device is ideal, if you are a pc gamer like myself, and also use Playstation products. The buttons are easy to program any way you wish, there's a button to switch between analog and digital use with the d- pad, and there is a cool design in the way the controller looks. It's good to have a wireless controller now, to use on some of my favorite old school arcade games like Street Fighter 2, X-Men and Mortal Kombat.
Summary: I really like it.. it has a great response time.. and is really easy to configure.. Two thing i wish they were better. 1. Sticks are not quite sensitive. 2. Is does not have vibration.. thought you should know it from its technical details.
Summary: I use this gamepad for most of my PC gaming. I have not experienced any issues that others have written about. Range is fine. I'm not across the room, but am maybe three to four feet from the receiver with the gamepad. I am not a fan of vibrating gamepads, so the Logitech, which I was considering buying, was out of the choice. I want a wireless controller with enough buttons to play any and all games.
Summary: I use this to play console emulators on my desk top. The software that is included makes mapping the buttons for different systems/games easy. I do feel that interface could be a little more user friendly. There are time at certain angles that it looses signal but that is to be expected from this type of wireless device. Overall this is a good gamepad especially for the price.
Summary: It looks and feels nice. You won't have any problems navigating around any screen with this. But when it comes down to playing simulation games this pad is useless. This is my first wireless game pad and will be my last. Playing a soccer game for example, every touch is vital. But with this, it cannot receive every push. Even when you have the gamepad right next to the wireless adaptor it won't be able to receive every signal.
Summary: I bought this joystick because I really wanted a wireless gamepad with 4 shoulder buttons and 6 side buttons. This one really seemed to be the only choice. However, there are some serious problems with it. The USB dongle takes up a lot of power, which means it doesn't work on many of the USB splitters/hubs on the market. I have 2 wireless mice connected to my Monitor USB ports, and they work fine, but Saitek engineering just doesn't seem to know how to do that.
Summary: I bought this after buying the wired version (P990) because I was pretty impressed with the P990. I bought the P2900 x1 and P990 x3 for emulation (there I said it). They work great and due to the generic layout they work well for almost any emulation you want to do from NES up through N64. There are enough buttons to go around and you can setup the buttons to near perfect alignment to the original emulated system. Overall a great controller...
Summary: After every five minutes or so, the signal would cut out. Control would usually be restored some seconds later, but not after whatever combination of pressed buttons had been sent continually to the game, often times forcing me to run into a pit, fire till I was out of ammo, or whatever. I read the manual and they recommended hitting a button on the controller to change the signal frequency, in case I was getting some signal interference. Same problem.
Summary: This product works great. I bought it to work with gametap and other videogame emulators. I was able to program all the buttons, but I was never able to get the D-pad to control movement so I used the joystick on the bottom. The remote control worked so well I bought one for my wife.
