Too boxy and bland. The ones in the film look better.
Funny, I been thinking the same thing about ALL 20th century guns. The thing about the turnable head of the movie versions is that they seem more primitive doing that switch a roo. Its like the phasers only have 2 settings (seems even more primitive than the enterprise phase pistols) . No wide field, no power settings, no "heater" settings, no "Vaporize" settings.
