eDimensional G-Pad Pro Gyroscopic Gamepad

Overall, the eDimensional G-Pad Pro is a really awesome gamepad to use. The gyroscopic sensor in it adds a new twist to gaming. By having adjustable sensitivity, you can fine-tune the G-Pad to your playing style as well as the particular game that you're playing.

However, one thing that I would like to see is an option for a "Dead Spot" as it is quite a challenge to make sure that the gamepad is at a flat level across two axes. It may sound like a minor thing when you're just holding it, but try keeping it straight while engaged in a virtual firefight!

The build quality of the G-Pad Pro is top-notch. I have no complaint about the build quality. Size may be a problem though, as it is noticeably narrower than the standard PlayStation 2 controller. The buttons are also smaller. But it could be just a matter of getting used to it.

I really should give an honorable mention to the fact that eDimensional went the extra mile by providing a high-quality manual that's very detailed (increasingly rare these days) in full color (a rarity!). We at Tech ARP believe that a good manual is a must if we want the user to fully utilize the product.

The software included with the PC version of the G-Pad Pro is top-notch. It is aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. It comes with options that allow you to fully customize the G-Pad Pro to any need you may have. For example, you can reconfigure buttons, turn off force feedback, sensitivity, etc.

All in all, it was a great pleasure using the G-Pad Pro. The motion-sensing ability of the G-Pad Pro is a HUGE "WOW" factor in playing games, as it adds a new interesting twist to the game. It definitely gives you a different experience from the plain old button-mashing days of the past.

The G-Pad Pro is top-notch in every aspect that a gamer would expect from their gamepad. As such, we think the G-Pad Pro deserves our Reviewer's Choice award! Congratulations, eDimensional!

* Our New Review System

ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a new review system.

This new review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
