To say that the problem with a car is that it doesn?t have wings is ridiculous. By the same token, it would be a wrong for me to say that the problem with the AirPlay
is that it is digital and not analog. If you purchase the AirPlay
, understand that it is a digital controller, and under none of my tests so far has it sprouted analog sticks. That having been said, in comparison with other digital controllers, the AirPlay
stands out as one of the best, especially when you add in the fact that it has (really great) remote control. Then there?s the fact that it needs a AA battery. This usually is an instant score reducer when I test hardware. However, if you want to control something from a distance without a cord, you have to transmit SOME kind of signal... and that takes energy. I would have to seriously slash a score on a remote control that had to be plugged in
, so we?ll accept this convention. Given the need for a battery, the Reload feature that allows a gamer to ?hot swap? a AA battery when the old one gets weak is to be applauded! (Who came up with THAT one?!)
In conclusion, I have nothing bad to say about the AirPlay. Overall, it does its job VERY nicely. An EXCELLENT product.
