Founded in the early 90’s, Thrustmaster joined the gaming accessory market with great enthusiasm, releasing outstanding products such as Joysticks, Racing Wheels, and Gamepads. These examples and many more have helped Thrustmaster forge a strong reputation for developing some of the best gaming accessories on the market. Their community status has been exemplified through licensing agreements with, Ferrari, Top Gun, Beretta and Splinter Cell. Thrustmaster’s unique collaboration with the US Air Force has helped them develop and offer the most compatible, innovative and realistic devices for the gaming world. With the release of the Rechargeable Wireless 2-in-1 Dual Trigger game pad, Thrustmaster continues their trend of excellence.

Look & Feel
With regards to the look, I believe Thrustmaster did a great job. The unit itself is a mixture of charcoal grey, black, silver and translucent deep red buttons. When turned on, the buttons light up with blue LEDs which allows for great play, even in the dark. I would have preferred to see white LEDs in order to get a red-ish glow behind the red buttons, but this is just nit picking for no reason. Simply put, the Thrustmaster Rechargeable Wireless Dual Trigger 2-in-1 gamepad looks great when you are using it, and even while it is charging securely in its black docking station.
As I explained previously, the look and feel of this gamepad is exquisite. It feels strong and solid. The parts that move (buttons, analog sticks) also appear to be built and assembled impeccably. However, like any peripheral of this sort, only time will tell how this device will stand up to regular use and abuse. If I do run into any problems down the road, I will make sure to update this review. Nevertheless, at this point in time, and after several weeks of use, I am confident in the fabrication and quality of this product.
