game pads? logitech g13,razer, ect - Page 4

post #31 of 36
I won my G13 in a comp, but I still use it all the time anyway. It means I can put my keyboard under my desk on a tray and have a very empty desk biggrin.gif I don't think you will be disappointed if you do decide to get one.

I have owned three gamepads, I will share my opinion of all three.

My first gamepad was the Steel Series Merc Stealth Keyboard yes, technically a keyboard, but I fell in love with the ability to macro everything and just the much more natural placement of buttons that gamepad set ups have.

My second pad was the Logitech G13. It had a nice shape, the curve really made my hand feel very comfortable during prolonged sessions, but the screen died not even 2 weeks in (doubt it is a common issue, the box I bought was the last they had at best buy and it looked like it was returned after being through hurricane Katrina, which would have involved time travel as well)

I traded it in, wanting a gamepad and my most recent game pad is the Razer Nostromo. To put it simply, this is the most comfortable gamepad I have ever owned. Hands down. The adjustable rest makes the pad fit my hand perfectly, using the controller is literally like a massage, and I have no problem hitting any of the keys. Admittedly the buttons are more sparse than some controllers on the market, but I combine it with a naga and I can map hundreds of keys. Macros are great, my only complaint is that the pad doesn't use nice brown mechanical switches or something, but they're very nice rubber switches and feel great for extended use. Given the price of the pad and the fact it's so easy to pick one up cheap used: EBAY! I'd say go for it if you're looking for comfort.

I strongly recommend laying hands on anything before you buy it though.

I have owned a few. Currently I use both the Razer Nostromo and the Logitech G13. (Yes both . . . Lol!)

If you use either one you should be fine. The Nostromo "might" be better for your hands since it has an adjustable hand rest. Then again you could just move your hand forward or back on the G13.

Which one is better? I'm sure it differs for each person but for me they are very similar and I do not know which one I like better yet.

The G13 has more buttons, which is neither better nor worse, depending on what you do. For FPS I doubt you would "need" that many buttons. So in this case the G13 or the Nostromo would be more than sufficient. I would imagine you are also using a good mouse with a good button setup (off hand I do not recall the button setup on the Death Adder).

At first use you might "feel" that a gamepad is not worth it or is not intuitive. But you need to use it consistently and build "muscle memory." Once this happens everything changes and becomes MUCH better. Your fingers instinctively hit the right keys without having to look away from your monitor.

Another awesome aspect is learning and using MACROS. You can do so much. (I have a macro which launches my game, inputs my password and then starts it. In-game I can activate different types of macros to do many things, which gives some advantage.)

These gamepads can also be used for more than just games. Photoshop, video editing, web surfing, multi-media, etc.

There are profiles you can download, so sometimes you do not need to create you own. You can just use these and tweak them to your liking.

The G13 let's you save 5 profiles into it's memory, so you can take the with you, or have them available if you reformat your computer and forget to save them.

Razer has a beta product called Synapse 2.0 which basically saves all of your Razer product profiles to the "Cloud" so that you always have any and all of your profiles available. (Synapse 2.0 is in beta and I would guess that it will be available shortly.)

With both of these game pads you can save profiles straight to your computer.

If you have other questions, ideas, comments, etc., just ask. smile.gif
