Surprisingly solid budget gamepad!,
This review is from: Saitek P380 Gamepad (PC) (Video Game)
If you want a cheap functional gamepad, you can't go wrong with this. With a design comparable to the PlayStation console controllers, this pad is comfortable to use and very responsive. The analogue sticks are solid and for a pad of this price you can get a surprising amount of precision from them. Ten buttons as well as two analogue sticks and a POV-directional pad were sufficient for almost any game I used with it.
The pad also features an Analogue button which disables the analogue sticks, but this behaviour wasn't consistent between games. It doesn't interfere with the pad's operation and can't be pressed accidently, so this is only a minor point.
Whilst this controller is very solidly built and quite robust, it will break easily if you apply much deliberate force to it; although at this price if one does break in the line of duty, buy another! You'll easily get your money's worth out of these.
I had one of these for a year until it broke in usage, and I must say it is the best PC gamepad I have used thus far. Precise, solid, comfortable, well built and cheap.
