Saitek, a leading designer and manufacturer of consumer electronic products for PC and gaming, has announced the launch of its 2008 range. The new PC gaming, Flight Sim, audio speakers, mouse and keyboard hardware falls into the following categories:

CYBORG Gaming–‘The Ultimate Man / Machine Interface’

The Cyborg PC Gaming range combines unique gaming features with a flexible design to provide an enhanced gaming experience. The Cyborg Mouse automatically expands to fit the gamers hand whilst the Cyborg Command Unit features programmable button configurations for specific game set-ups.

The new Cyborg Game pad has a reversible module– allowing the d-pad and left joystick positions to be swapped– as well as a FPS button and Precision mode for increased accuracy. The range is completed by the fully customisable Cyborg keyboard and Cyborg headset with an integrated 5:1 sound system.

Saitek Audio–‘Explosive Sound’

The latest speakers from Saitek feature ASIS - an‘advanced stereo imaging system’ for superior sound quality. The speakers produce a crisp and clean sound over a wide acoustic range due to the innovative design that limits the distance between the speaker bowl and casing, minimising sound distortion.
