"Best Gamepad compared to Logitech G13 and Belkin's N52"5.0 starson by Steve_Zissou
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

-button 21 is on the bottom piece of the gamepad..which makes it absolutely useless..make sure to disable it!lol.
