The Features

Hold on tight as we've got three things to mention from one picture. The segmented D-Pad helps ensure your inputs can be made accurately, which certainly isn't a claim you can level against the Microsoft one. The Start and Select buttons have been moved to the leading edge of the pad which should stop those awkward moments when you slip off the top of the right stick and pause the game. Finally you can see the dial beneath the stick which enables you to adjust the resistance to your liking.

The buttons light up quite brightly. Unfortunately they have proved almost impossible to photograph clearly but 'in real life' the colours are much more vibrant and the letters still easily legible.

The cable is enormous, a full 15m long, and the whole thing is coated in a very high quality braid that is both soft to the touch and also sturdy enough to survive laying across your carpet and being caught by inattentive feet. There is also the standard 360 break-away about 2 foot along from the pad which should help keep your console/pad safe if people do catch the cable.

In those little touches, the text on the face buttons is upside down. When you're wondering what button is what you tend to tilt the pad towards yourself, so you can read it without any gymnastics.

The MFBs can be remapped to anything you like. This slightly adjustment of the placing of the standard RB and LB buttons has been ergonomically aided by giving them a little corner so you can press them just by flexing your first knuckle. Dead handy for those gear changes whilst keeping your fingers on the triggers. Those triggers are bigger too and more comfortable to use.

Looks tacky to me and they could have at least tried to make it not look almost exactly the same as a 360 pad. Personally I thing the Dualshock 3 pads are the best plus you can get them for around £25.
