Redgear Pro Gamepad (Wireless) Review
Inside the Box
You’ll get these things inside the box of your Redgear Pro gamepad.
- A Gamepad (Obviously)
- 2 USB dongles for connectivity (Best thing done by Redgear)
- A charging cable (Length around 2-3 feet)
- A user manual
Redgear Pro Wireless Gamepad Design
The Readgear Pro has an ergonomic design that makes it handy to use. The ergonomic design and rubberised material on the side make it easy to grip.
This rubberised material gives you extra stability to hold your gamepad. However, Some people might feel this cheaper compare to Cosmic Byte ARES.
But you should know that Cosmic Byte Ares is a little bit expensive and a newer gamepad in the market. So, It’s pretty obvious that Cosmic Byte improves some of the things.
The Redgear Pro on the other side comes at aggressive pricing and offer a similar feature. In addition, You’ll also get a tiny dual dongle compared to the bigger one in Cosmic Byte.
Now come to the keys and button parts. Redgear Pro has 11 digital keys with ABXY illuminated LED buttons.
However, The LED are not so bright and does not show easily in daylight. But there is no such problem in that in my personal opinion.
The analogue sticks are easy to rotate and movable for a smooth gaming experience. While triggers are good and give haptic feedback.
However, the LB and RB triggers are not so great and make more sound than the lower triggers. This sound might annoy some people.
The D-Pad design is good and gives you better control and precision for navigation. The turbo button comes in handy for gamers when you have to perform a task repeatedly.
You can assign a task to this turbo button for which you don’t want to press buttons again and again. So, It might be handy for burst shooting or in fighting games.
To turn on the gamepad simply press the “Home” button on your gamepad. To turn off the gamepad press the “Back + B” till the LED indicator and buttons light turn off.
Redgear Pro Gamepad Weight & Connectivity
The Redgear Pro has a mentioned weight of around 340g. However, It feels light and pretty handy to hold and use.
It comes with a 2.4 GHz USB dongle to connect the gamepad to your PC or Laptop wirelessly. The best part of Readgear is that they provide additional dongles in case you broke or lost one.
The wireless range of the connectivity is around 6-8m. The range is sufficient to play the games from the distance.
If you use it on the desktop or Laptop then your usual distance is around 3-4m maximum. So, there is no connectivity issue as such present here.
To connect your gamepad with a PC just plug in your dongle and start to play. There is no driver download needed here.
(In case you still use Windows XP then you have to download driver software before use.)
Performance and Gaming test
The most important part of the gamepad is its performance during gameplay. So, don’t worry and sit back relax I’ll cover everything for you.
You’ll get two input modes XInput and DirectInput here. This will allow you to play games on both your Windows PC and Android mobiles.
These two modes allow you to play games by just plug n play setup. So, there is no hassle to download a driver or configuring your controller before use.
Inside gameplay, you’ll see smooth and lag-free feedback from the buttons. In addition, the vibration motors are refined and give haptic feedback.
However, Some people find it on the softer side but I like it personally. However, Android mobiles do not give you vibration feedback during gameplay.
You can check the game test and latency test below.
Redgear Pro comes with a 700 mAH battery that can last up to 7-8 hours. If you are a casual gamer like me who play games 1-2 hours maximum a day then you don’t have to charge it regularly.
However, People use gamepads for 4-5 hours daily then daily charging or alternate day charging is required.
The battery life is mediocre and seems sufficient for most people. However, Hardcore users have to charge it regularly or they can buy wired ones with the same quality and features at a lower price.
To charge the gamepad you’ll get a USB 3.0 to USB A cable inside the box. The gamepad takes around 3-4 hours for a full charge.
For more charging instructions you can refer user manual provided inside the box.
That’s it, Folks!
I hope you’ll get the things you are looking for before the purchase. If your is around 1k then you can go with its wired version as well.
Both the gamepads are identical in terms of performance, design and durability. So, You don’t have to worry about anything. (Rest assured)
