The best thing about this game pad is there is no software required and Windows recognizes like nothing else. All the buttons are programmable within the game(s). There are 2 side buttons that when pressed have a blue lcd lights shining. These are mainly for show as the ganepad does not have back lit key lighting. The WASD keys are big. The one difference you will notice is that the keys on the keyboard and the buttons on the game pad. Since the the keyboard's keys are all the same size and the game pad have a bigger WASD, you may have to re customize some of the keys within your game...I normally use (when using a keyboard) the c to crouch. I changed that to the X for the gamepad and got used to it very quicky.
Another great feature is the wrist pad that is attached. It helps with long sessions of gaming. The only thing bad I can say is that after 3 days the lights started going out on the game pad. Cyber Snipa has a great policy from the date of purchase you have 1 year and they will replace it. I emailed them and they sent me a replacement. The one had the lights working, but then 1 light on the side would not work...No big deal, but I contacted them again and they sent me a new one...The new one had the lights working, but when plugged into the usb and turning on the pc, it would not boot up all the way and I had to unplug the game pad for the pc to boot up and plug in the gamepad back in. That was annoying.Read more ›
On the good side, after two years of use the keys all still work. I didn't have the problem that others have reported of the LED lights going out. However, I actually just now turned the LEDs on to check to see if they worked; for the past two years I have always had them turned off. The placement of the LEDs does not assist you to see the keys on the keypad, and I have been glad that they could be turned off since they really serve no purpose and are very annoying.
I now have a Logitech G13 gameboard to replace the Cyber Snipa, which will be going to Goodwill in a few days and won't be missed. Hasta la vista, baby.
However there is one HUGE problem I have with this pad... the keys require way too much pressure to activate them. With most keyboards, slightly depressing them will activate them, and not a whole lot of finger pressure is required. With the Cyber Snipa, there is a rubber mat with nubs for each key, and it has to be pressed more than 80% of the way down before the key starts registering.
So even though I would push the key halfway down into the slot, no action took place until I firmly pressed it all the way down. This caused me problems 3 fold:
1) Every time I tried to move, there was a slight delay before I'd actually start moving the direction I wanted due to the pressure required
2) I got some finger fatigue that I have NEVER experienced with a normal keyboard
3) Because it required firm pressure to keep the key down, quite often I'd stop moving unintentionally when one of my fingers let up on the key even just ever so slightly.
I will note that this affected the WASDQE keys the most as they were the biggest keys, but all of the keys suffered from this, with the Space/Crouch keys suffering from it the least.
Another note, the numbers are almost impossible to distinguish due to them all having the same size and being awkwardly shaped buttons.Read more ›
