Saitek P3000 Wireless Game Pad

Summary: In the box this thing comes with your standard paperwork, a CD with the drivers, the usb "docking station" that charges the batteries and receives the rf signal, the controller and two rechargeable batteries. Out of the box one of these batteries didn't work at all.
Forget rumble and wireless, work on making a better D-pad!

Summary: 1: How many PC games out there use rumble/force feedback? I can't think of many, maybe Need for Speed or something. Vibration motors only add more weight to the controller. 2: Wireless just means time spent recharging. Besides, you're often in a chair right in front of your computer!
Summary: 1 of the 2 rechargable batteries it came with didn't work right out of the box. After over a month, the second battery started having problems; for example, I'd have to keep on re-inserting it into the gamepad or the recharger before it recognized it was in.
Summary: The Good The controller has ample buttons which make it so you wont need your keyboard or mouse. The controller itself is constructed well, and has a great feel to it. Problems: 1. Wireless - although it says 30 feet, i have found that it needs to be within 3 feet of me for the best results.
