Logitech Dual Action Gamepad review

Logitech Dual Action Gamepad review & Experiences

The Dual Action Gamepad is a more advanced version of the Precision Gamepad. It does not have the latter’s translucent dress but a midnight blue shell. On the other hand, it is equipped with two Chinese hats, which represents a significant advantage. Their coating is quite specific since it is soft and very adherent, which allows them to hold them well under the thumb.

The Dual Action Gamepad also has two buttons in the middle, four on the right side and four triggers. The joypad comes with Logitech profiler software. This one, as soon as the device is installed, scans your PC to find the games for which it has a configuration or not. On our test PC, the software found five of the seven games present and offered two profiles already defined. Note that he found neither GTA Vice City nor FIFA 2005.

It scans the PC and automatically recognizes compatible games. In use, the Dual Action Gamepad is just as effective as its little brother Precision Gamepad. We just note that its directional pad, a little “buried” in the hull requires a little time to adapt before not overflowing. Its surface is indeed very smooth. Chinese hats are effective and their length, although very soft, does not lack precision. The four buttons are also a bit soft, but their positioning makes them easy and intuitive to find. Regarding ergonomics, no worries, the pad fits well in the hands and no early fatigue is felt.

I am showing the experiences of several people who have used this gamepad.

  • Very Good Controller 
    Very good controller considering that I was able to get it with 30% reduction or ~ 25 €. The grip is pleasant, the sticks as well as the triggers offer good precision for car games. The multidirectional cross seems fragile at first glance but it is solid. OK buttons. On the other hand, no vibrations. ( JeanCharlesD)

  • Great!
    Very good alternative to the XBOX Pad, you can feel the quality in the materials. I tried several models in this price range (Thrustmaster) but this one far exceeds the others. I recommend ! (by MickaelK)

  • Excellent compromise
    The lower cost than the Sony or Microsoft models and the quality of its realization are important advantages. NB: the controller is recognized by Windows as a Microsoft 360 controller. (by XavierP)

  • I love

  • She does the Job
    a good controller that reminds me of our good old playstation controller.(by AlexandreC)

  • Works fine without more
    We are in 2020 and we are struggling to find the correct controllers, something that has existed for more than 40 years without any particular functional change. This controller is nothing exceptional, a copy of a playstation controller, it works, but makes too much noise when you press the buttons. I didn’t want to pay too much, otherwise I would have taken a console controller directly.(by JeromeB)

    Good PC controller for playing games like Need for speed and soccer games.(by BrunoR)

    No complaints about the keys, positioning and size, I got used to it very well and it is very practical. (by Yannick C.)

  • Good product
    nothing to report compliant product.(by PHILIPPE P.)
