The Review:

On a windows XP machine, without any instruction in the box I set up the unit very carefully. I turned off the monitor and unplugged it from the back of the computer because the attached small box-like unit attached to the gun had a monitor plug port and another extension cable with the monitor plug at the end. I guessed that I had to run the monitor through this unit and was absolutely correct in my assumption. The other cable attached to the unit was a USB plug which I proceeded to plug into the computer as well.

"New hardware found", my computer said and I inserted the cd that came with the gun and the computer proceeded to install the light gun and was ready to use in under 4 minutes. Remembering that there is NO instruction booklet in the box.

Now to test the gun I placed the Game "Mad Dog McCree into the computer and instantly the game came up and I got into the old western shoot-out game in earnest. The gun felt very comfortable in my hand. I has a very nice grip. The reload is a flat long button on the left side of the gun and so this unit is definitely for right handed people. I had fun for hours playing with the gun and al I can say that it performed admirably. It felt like when I used to play at the arcade but was much more comfortable and more accurate as well. For the price everyone that plays shooting games should give this unit a try.
