Pros -10x better than the Belkin N52
Cons -Not very ergonomic
-Some games don't recognize the controller.
Summary I really like this controller. I mailnly play First person Shooters. It works great on games like Left 4 Dead 1 and 2. Compatability issues are sometimes the fault of the game distributors and not this controllers fault. I just wish it worked on everything. The Xbox 360 controller is more compatable than this controller, but obviously that's a console style controller. For the price, and number of buttons the Cyborg has, I highly recommend it.
Pros - easy to use software, can program any key.
- Analog Stick makes it much easier for movement if you use it like a joystick
-20 buttons vs 15(belkin) and 25(g13)
- Analog and gamepad is full adjustable for comfort unlike the others.
Cons - I wish it was a little heavier
Summary Honestly, I just bought the G13 eariler today, and I am going to return it. The analog stick on the Saitek Command unit is MUCH better than the G13's. it can be adjusted to your desire, the G13 cannot(main reason of returning it). Plus the button scheme on the Saitek Command unit just make more sense ergonomically, and it can be used for people who enjoy joystick movement and WASD movement perfectly. The G13's buttons are all over the place, and the Belkin N52 only has 15 buttons. I'm a button freak for the most part and even have the WoW mouse for ingame macros(even outside of wow) for hotkey uses. So I love programming my hotkeys and macros on my Saitek and WoW mouse(killer combo). Anyway, the screen on the G13 has no real purpose, and it doesn't seem like a LCD screen, and if it is, the display is that of a DOS prompt..lol. "C:\" anyway, for a hotkey freak like me, who hates the keyboard and likes using a analog stick for moving, this is your best bet, at the best price. I've owned all 3.
-1st of it's kind
-mouse wheel(i dont use)
-not enough buttons
-TONS of buttons
-shiny back lights
-weight is heavy
-great for WASD players out there
-not great for joystick preference users
-confusing button scheme
-LCD screen is of no use
Saitek Command Unit
-only 20 buttons
-button 21 is on the bottom piece of the gamepad..which makes it absolutely useless..make sure to disable it!lol.
Pros Design is nice. The fact that you can program all the keys into 3 different types of setting is good too. The swivel/ thumb joystick can be adjusted by length and swivel. I also like the lighting. Pretty much all you need to play a FPS or RTS.
Cons Although the design is nice looking, the area where you put the base of your palm at can't be adjusted. I've also had some issues with the movements during FPS games. Like going diagonally and I've even had it not completely respond to me a few time.
Summary I think if you can find it for $30 or lower then get it if you can't afford the higher end ones. I've had a lot of compliments on how "cool" it looks on my desk. Function-wise, it could use a lot of improvements.
