    Great price & idea, but poorly executed

    posted by echolake on 12/26/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    -It's cheap -It's fun -It rolls up, it's easy to carry -Liquid-proof -Accidental food spillage proof -USB, even my Macbook recognizes it (granted you have to do the quick and simple keyboard setup that'll pop up once you plug it in). MAC NOTES: The option a...

    Meh. It's alright but at this price??

    posted by echolake on 12/26/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - No more batteries! - 2 controllers simultaneously - can be used via anything with a USB port (I use my macbook to charge them sometimes) - cheap ($$$) - It seems to provide ample amount of gameplay time, I've yet to run out of power
    Cons:
    -Maybe it's just my unit but the cradle is VERY sensitive, it seems like the controller has to be docked in a precise way to st...

    Cons:
    1. the qwerty layout is fine but the functions key are placed a little awkwardly. Once used to them, it's no problem 2. the ran...
