Hori T.A.C. keypad review 4

I never get tired of telling the story of how I bought a PS3 almost ten years ago, also the one from the first batches, with the possibility of blowing. I bought a PS3, bought Battlefield: Bad Company, came home, connected everything to the TV, set it up, and then they started family business, and only returned to the console in the evening. For a long time I could not figure out how to connect the headphones. I connected it all the way, took the joystick - and realized that it was impossible to play. Before that, there were computers, laptops, a mouse - a keyboard, you know. It is impossible to instantly get used to holding a completely new device in two hands, and even moving your fingers in different directions, and even somehow synchronizing all this with the game. It took about three months to more or less learn. Six months later, it turned out quite quickly to drive in CoD, even with a PP, even with a sniper rifle, point-shot, point-shot, and it became unusual to play with the keyboard and mouse.

Yes, there are still some misconceptions to dispel. Firstly, it is high time to forget all these arguments about “playing shooters on consoles” - millions of people do this every day without any problems. Secondly, regarding the speed of the game with a joystick or keyboard - mouse - if you go into the field on a console against a well-trained teenager, then neither the keyboard nor the mouse will help you. Let me explain, no matter how well I sometimes play CoD, there are no chances against children, a different reaction speed, there is a lot of time to study the map, perfect movements, and select equipment. No keyboard will help. Thirdly, some games are really easier to play with a joystick, and for this it is worth learning. Well, take at least Horizon and other toys where you sometimes have to perform an insane amount of actions in seconds - it’s more convenient to do it on a joystick. Now I don't know how to reach additional buttons on the keyboard.

Well, to finish the thought - with great interest I took the Hori T.A.C. keypad from a friend for a couple of weeks. 4, to try for yourself, is there any point in buying. I hasten to share my impressions.

I want to complain right away, the USB cable should be three times longer, there is nothing to be greedy about - so if I play on a 65-inch TV, then I need to move as far as possible. Here the cable length is about two meters, very little. Moreover, you can connect another one only through an adapter, it is built into the keyboard. The mouse is connected to the USB connector, on the left is the headphone jack. In addition to the cable extension, you will need some kind of table for your knees or a hard mouse pad, I played on a tray from Ikea, it looked ridiculous, but what can I do. In general, all this is perceived at first as sadism, you are used to the joystick, you have a long charging cable, your fingers already lie where they need to, but here you need to start all over again.

The joystick officially works with PS4 / PS4 Pro and PS3, when connected, the corresponding icons appear on the screen, there is a lever on the keypad body to select the desired console. The sensitivity of the mouse is adjustable from 400 dpi to 3200 dpi, the default is 1600 dpi, you need to use the buttons next to the wheel to adjust. The mouse and keyboard have a nice backlight, you can adjust it.

The specifications are as follows:

  • Country of origin: China
  • Model: ACPS463
  • Connection type: wired.
  • Cord length: 1.8m
  • Compatibility: PlayStation4, PlayStation3.
  • Number of buttons: 9 + scroll wheel
  • Number of keys: 16.
  • Sensor type: optical.
  • Sensor resolution: 800 - 3200 dpi.
  • Max. sensor resolution, dpi (cpi): 3200.
  • Shape: for right-handers.
  • Keyboard type: membrane.
  • Features: Illuminated, gold-plated USB plug, built-in scroll wheel
  • Powered by USB.
  • Dimensions, mm: 195 x 35 x 150 (keyboard), 115 x 40 x 80 (mouse).
  • Packed weight: 755g

Well, after connecting, I read the instructions for a long time, where a lot of things are written in small print - a bunch of different settings, the Snipe button lowers the sensitivity of the mouse in order to increase accuracy, and switching between the left analog stick and the D-pad at the bottom right, and the Quick button for instant maximum increase in mouse sensitivity, and setting, saving your profiles. And it remains only to turn on the accelerator and rush off into space.

To prevent this from happening, I connected Hori T.A.C. 4 to PS4 Pro and tried CoD: Infinite Warfare.

There is a saying that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. When you have been using a variety of joysticks for ten years, it is very difficult to take it and forget about all your experience in the meantime. Alas, if you are used to the joystick and you can play shooters with it, you don’t need to change anything. Try a professional joystick like the Razer Raiju.

Hori TAC 4

I mean, after a couple of hours, after a variety of settings, I couldn’t play normally. Here you have to learn again, but there is no time for this - yes, with the mouse you can aim very quickly, but this speed seems kind of stupid. Especially when you move from CoD to Battlefield 1, where the speed is generally different - or rather, on the contrary, everything often happens slowly.

That is, for myself, I use Hori T.A.C. 4 I just don’t see it, put it in a box and began to think what conclusions to draw.

Hori TAC 4 Hori TAC 4

Conclusions

Now, if you just bought a set-top box and you want to smash the joystick against the wall, then Hori T.A.C. 4 for 9,000 - 11,000 rubles (such a price, yes) will become almost the only panacea, it is officially certified, intelligently made, it can be configured, even if the cable is more authentic, Glass Decor Tray/Asnt would be fine. But do not be stingy, buy an adapter. That is, I personally have no complaints about the piece of iron, all functions work well, and if you spend time, you can even get positive vibrations.

Except for beginners, I advise you to try Hori T.A.C. 4 for those who can’t play shooters, constantly burns from constant deaths, I want to somehow improve and get a cheat. Try it! But there are no guarantees. First, teenagers will play better anyway (most of the time). Secondly, after all, it's not just a matter of technology, a joystick, it's also a matter of talent. There is a tendency to play well - you will do it and instantly master any map. No talent - a keypad, even the best one, will not help.

Third, if you decide to switch to Hori T.A.C. 4, then this may be true for shooters, but for most other games, a joystick will do.

That is, beginners can safely think about buying, but keep in mind the idea that the joystick will still be useful to you, you need to master it. “Old men” I advise you to take and try in a store or with friends. I’m lucky, I didn’t spend ten thousand rubles on a thing that is useless for me.

The author would like to thank Phil for providing the keypad for testing.
