Saitek P990 Dual Analog Pad

  • P990
ICON Loading...

The P990 dual analog pad from Saitek gives you more features than your standard gamepad. Instead of the usual 8 buttons you get 12. This is especially helpful when you’re playing first person shooters. The FPS button automatically maps the buttons to the most common keyboard commands in today’s games. Buttons 9 and 10 are next to buttons 1-4, and buttons 11 and 12 are activated by pressing the joysticks.

The P990 isn’t limited to first person shooters though. The Saitek Smart Technology software lets you program the pad’s buttons with any keyboard or mouse command so you never have to take your hands off the pad breaking your concentration.

  • newegg Full Control The Saitek P990 Dual Analog Pad features an 8-way D-pad, two analog sticks and 12 programmable buttons for full control in various PC games.
  • newegg FPS Button Upon a single press, the FPS button quickly programs the Saitek P990 Dual Analog Pad with your keyboard and mouse commands used in FPS games so you can start on gaming rapidly without time-consuming programming.
  • newegg USB Connectivity The Saitek P990 Dual Analog Pad features a USB 2.0 connector for great compatibility and plug-and-play convenience.

Features
4 quick-fire shoulder triggers
8-way d-pad
6 responsive buttons
2 analog joysticks with built-in buttons
FPS gaming button; instant configuration for first person games
Fully programmable

The P990 is the classic PC pad for good, solid control. Featuring the now standard control set of six face buttons, four shoulder buttons and two analog sticks with integrated buttons, the P990 has everything you need to take control of your PC games.
The P990 Analog Pad also utilises Saitek's unique FPS button. We realise that many gamers (especially those used to playing on consoles) like to use their gamepads to control first person shooter games, but the majority of these games on PC do not support gamepads. To make the gamepad work in the game you need to program it using the supplied programming software. Whilst this option is still available to you, you can take all the effort out of this by pressing the FPS button on the pad. This instantly programs the pad with the keyboard and mouse commands typically used in these games, meaning you can start playing your games even quicker.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome gamepad

Pros: dependable, works out of the box;
very responsive controls

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: got this as a replacement for a logitech gamepad, because that one's left thumbstick actually broke;
but regardless the saitek feels more durable and is better made than the logitech one

1 out of 5 eggsYUK!!

Pros: I had hoped that setting this up would be as easy as the N52 from Belkin so my son (7) could do it and that it would be easy!

Cons: I was wrong the set up is total garbage! You spend more time screwing with the set up then you do playing and then it's never just right for you or other people. If it's close enough for you to live with, it's not for the person your setting it up for.

Other Thoughts: GET BETTER SOFTWARE! Call Belkin for help!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value, Worked with Linux

Pros: Good value. Decent button placement. Right sized. Worked with linux and my emulators with no hiccups so far.

Cons: The R2 button is a bit sticky. It tends to get "caught." However, I personally won't be playing any games that would ever get me using it, so its not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I run Ubuntu and use GFCEU (the NES emulator) and ZNES. So far, its worked like a charm, totally painless. I haven't used it with any MAME version yet or other emulators, but I really wanted ZNES up and going and its been good.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: I have been an avid PS gamer for 10+ years, so as I'm transitioning to PC gaming I just can't grasp a keyboard and mouse for FPS. Got this for an attempt of seeing if there was a decent way to game before I forego controllers and learn the dark arts of 'traditional' pc gaming. Overall I'm extremely impressed. Quality controller, and a definite plus is on Saitek's website they have a customizable profiler to allow reprogramming your controller to standard keyboard and mouse functions and switching between different profiles with two mouse clicks. Yes that means not having to spend hours trying to re-configure all your games to recognize the controller, and since the profiler can be configured so the system can't tell the difference between the controller and keyboard or mouse all your favorite legacy apps run without a hitch. (I have it setup to run ORIGINAL Quake!!!) Or you could use it to browse the web, if you have nothing better to do. Plus you get two more buttons!!

Cons: Slightly larger and shifted button placement from a PS remote. I'm sure they had to do this because of copyright/patent jazz. Not going to be too hard to adjust but just to note, it is bigger than a PS remote. The analog sticks do have a different feel, seem every bit as responsive but not as springy so you can easily overwork the analog until you get used to having less resitance. I didn't knock an egg because I'm still impressed but just noting for everyone else that it is different.

Other Thoughts: For $20 a worthwhile buy, I may at some point figure out how to connect a PS3 remote, but at this time it seems sketchy how to get that working and I didn't feel like dropping that kinda of money until I get into PC gaming more. But right now I'm so happy I'm just going to leave well enough alone.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A great controller, comfy, not too large and has six face buttons which I love. This controller lasted me several years and I'm about to purchase another

Cons: Though it lasted a long while, it wasn't long enough. The D-Pad literally just fell apart in my hands while playing megaman and came apart from the rest of the controller leaving a sharp nub in it's place.

Other Thoughts: Definately worth buying if in need of a quality controller

2 out of 5 eggsYour kidding me right?

Pros: It wasn't very expensive.....it can work for a 7 year old kids grip, where an N52 is big!

Cons: I checked these out before I bought a Belkin N52 years ago and didn't think much of them. Then I was replacing my N52 (which my wife now has) and checked them out again and bought an N52te instead of a game pad. I never cared much for game pads except on PS systems. The programs that are used for the Saitek line are the worst I've ever seen. I recommend getting something else if you want good user friendly programs. The playability of this controller isn't nearly as good as my N52te and with the aggravation factored in just setting it up for UT2k4 for my 7 year old I should have bought a used N52 or N52te.

Other Thoughts: Get the programs at least close to what Belkin is using and I may consider buying one again down the road. Till then this thing is just another paper weight on the desk till I get my son something better.

BUY AN N52, NOT THIS!!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent multi-purpose controller

Pros: Works under Ubuntu Linux 9.04, no calibration needed, two analog sticks that were easy to play with (even with flight simulators), plenty of buttons.

Cons: Took a while to figure out that "analog" button swaps the joypad with the left analog stick (no way to control this via software). Joypad sometimes gets stuck (problematic with action games). No instruction manual.

Other Thoughts: I am not a hard core gamer, I basically got this because I got a new Linux comp and needed a controller that would play most games and control certain apps.

1 out of 5 eggsSaitek Made Me Angry With Lies

Pros: It has a blue light and is cosmetically pleasing.

Cons: Let me say I used to be a big fan of Saitek. At one time all my perephials were from this company.
Now where to start...
1. A 4' cable. Unless I'm standing at my desk or sitting on my computer the cable isnt long enough to use. If you have USB ports in the back of your PC, it will reach about a foot and a half past the front of the computer.
2. Square analog stick controller. The joysticks are not normal. They make a square shape which is very hard to see from the picture and is not ideal for any games I have played hence forth
3. Customizable Buttons... Where? I'm sorry, I didn't know this controller actually had them. If you get this controller and were hoping to put some of your best street fighter combos on macro or even change the default layout... FORGET IT. The software that comes with this package is terrible and non-functional. I am C++ Certified and still couldn't make this work... I should have read the reviews before buying it myself.
4. Refer to 1-3 and be warned.

Other Thoughts: In my honest opinion I really feel ripped off. I would have replaced the controllers and opted for a refund except for the fact that they were gifts and were not opened until a week after the return was over. Saitek should not be allowed to sell such a faulty and deceiving product. I wish newegg had some kind of quality control that would weed items like this out.
