Logitech Gamepad F310 Review – Buyer’s Guide

The first controller in this test is also the cheapest, Logitech Gamepad F310 is based on the PlayStation layout &  features all basic functions, with the exception of the vibration function. The left thumb-stick & the D-pad can assume each other’s function and you can switch the controller’s output between X input and Direct Input. With the latter function, you are able to use the bundled software to configure the buttons exactly as you want.

The triggers are a bit shorter than those of the other controllers in this test. They also offer a high amount of resistance, which may result in finger cramps when holding down these buttons for a longer period of time. Because of the modest dimensions of this game-pad, you can only hold it in a single way. The buttons and the D-pad react properly. The thumb-sticks, however, clearly have a dead-zone of 2.4mm and an acceleration as soon as the F310 detects movement. As a result, characters or vehicles in a game can not be controlled as precisely

 Some Thing More About Logitech Gamepad F310

Performance:

Speaking to the controllers I own, the Logitech Gamepad F310  have solid construction.  The 310 is light weight comparing it to others such as Microsoft’s own wired Xbox 360 controller.  However the F510 controllers weight is more in line with a standard 360 controller as well as others that include vibration feedback.

The controller buttons have a pleasing slight ‘click’ when depressed and have a wonderful balance of resistance allowing ease of use without unintentional presses.  The buttons also are constructed in such a way that I have never had any of the keys bind up or stick while using them.  Both of these features make for a great gaming experience by ensuring you have enough controller feedback to know that buttons have been pressed as well as having nothing get in the way of pressing them.
