Use it regularly after 8 years of no use

  • Summary: Got this as a Christmas present when I was 6 (2001), used it regularly for a few years and then it became less involved in my life, so my mom put it away in the closet for 8 years. After getting into racing again I took it out and remarkably it works like new!

No weakness' and very Robust

  • Summary: Its well worth spending more and buying a quality wheel. Of course you can spend hundreds on very expensive wheels, but in this price range the main contenders are the MSFF wheel, Logitech, and Act Labs wheel.

  • Excerpt: This joysticks is on of the best I've had. Its big and heavy enough to keep it balanced unlike some joysticks I've had which needed suction cups. The force feed back is very good and feels realistic.
  • Pros: Great Force Feedback, Ergonomic, Lots of buttons
  • Cons: Pricey, Connector

Feel every Launch

  • Excerpt: Well this is one hell off a joystick and im sure it’s beaten any competition that might’ve threatened it. It’s pretty big to look at first but soon becomes a synch to operate. The force Feedback feature is what’s really fascinating about this product and im sure it beats any other force feedback...
  • Pros: Great Feedback, Features
  • Cons: Not as Durable as you might expect

  • Excerpt: I have had the Microsoft Force feedback Pro for about 2 years now. In this time I have had no problems with it what so ever! so the hardware would appear to be very reliable. A lot of games can be played using a combination of mouse and keyboard.
  • Pros: Makes games more realistic
  • Cons: Would be good if it worked with Linux .

Well worth the money!

  • Excerpt: I've had the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Joystick for about 3 months now and battered it to death using it mostly for Flight Simulator 2. I've tried other joysticks for this game but wanted a top-end reasonably priced piece of hardware - and it hasn't disappointed!
  • Pros: Sturdy, Robust and Unbreakable !
  • Cons: Annoying flashing green light .  .  .

  • Excerpt: Fed up with spinning off the track because you had to use your digital controller only allowing you full lock left or straight on. This is not driving but surely a punishment for buying a driving simulator and playing it with a keyboard. The answer you need a steering wheel. The next question?

Force - my Feedback

pc-tech, Ciao
14 January 2002
  • Excerpt: Before I start this review I would like to make a couple of things quite clear. Firstly, I am reviewing Force Feedback 1 and not the newer USB Force Feedback 2. Secondly, I did not buy this joystick myself but had it given to me by a relative.
  • Pros: Adds extra interactivity to games, works with Windows XP, durable
  • Cons: Now outdated and replaced with 2nd version, not USB, limited support in games, quite expensive, big
