Saitek Pro Gamer Command Unit Review
Overclockers Club :: Friday, March 30, 2007
“After realizing the unit is not capable of customization, the second thing people have noted is “Why?” This is a valid question that I haven’t come up with a solid answer for despite the fact I have had a lot of time with this gadget. It really is tough to defend this question because the Pro Gamer is a niche item that anyone can do without. The more time I spent with it the more people asked the magic question. “Why?” Well I’m not sure but I have become agitated the more I hear it. It makes me feel like Edward Furlong in Terminator 2 when Arnie repeatedly asks why things are the way they are. “I just don’t know why ok Governor?” It’s pretty tough to defend something that offers no new features, takes up a USB port and may make you the center of ridicule if you break it out.”
