Saitek Cyborg Evo Wireless review

Price when reviewed

Every gamer is familiar with the knot of wires that develops within minutes of picking up a controller, so the Cyborg Evo Wireless is a great step forward. It communicates with the PC via a tiny wireless USB dongle and performs as responsively as a standard wired model. Battery life is good too: on a single AA battery, Saitek claims 75 hours’ use and a year on standby.

Saitek Cyborg Evo Wireless review

It’s a dream to use, picking up the slightest twitch of the wrist, and the buttons are easily accessible. The throttle is controlled by a lever on the base that works effectively. The only downside is the lack of force feedback; for £10 more there’s an Evo Force model that offers this instead of the wireless capability.

The stick itself is fully customisable: you can switch to a left-handed setup by removing three thumbscrews, as well as raising and lowering the wrist support and adjusting the angle of the top buttons. The handle is also twistable for a further control.

The Thrustmaster is the Top Gun of these joysticks, but unless you’re a flight fanatic you’ll be happy with the better value Saitek.
