Great joystick for lefties.

Summary: I'm left handed and most joysticks have a thumb rest which is a problem for lefties. I actually contacted Thrustmaster as a child to ask why they had such a small selection for lefties and they replied that it's simple economics.
Summary: Been using joysticks since I got my first PC Compaq Deskpro 286e in 1989. Used the Gravis 2 button Joysticks back then for my games. As time wore on, a lot of my PC Sport games only supported game pads which I never cared for.
Summary: Do not buy! The price represented here is because this has been pulled from the market. I bought it 2 years ago for $15.00 now it's showing $80! No twist! Twist action on joysticks (Z-axis for rudder control on aircraft or "turn left right") has been a standard for over 15 years, and Logitech...
Summary: I bought this joystick in 2005 to use with Battlefield 2. I chose it for it's price ($29.99) and because it doesn't have the twist-style yaw control. I used the two side buttons on the thumb area for yaw for about 2 years until the rubber under the buttons wore through and they stopped working.
Summary: I've had the joystick for more than a year and a half now and despite complaints from other reviewers of it breaking down over time, its still working fine for me. Nothing fancy, but it works with no problems; exactly what you'd expect from a standard USB joystick.
Summary: I've used this joystick mostly for Flight Simulator X but also for 18 Wheels of Steel and Ship Simulator. It's great for flying of course but it would have been nice if the throttle feature was a little bigger or more realistic.
Summary: I bought this thing as a replacement for my Microsoft Sidewinder 2. That joystick no longer worked on 64-bit architecture, so I wanted to replace it. This is NOT the joystick to do so.
Pros: It has buttons and it moves. It has a trigger. It's cheap.
Cons: No Z rotation, not very comfortable, the buttons aren't strategically places, the throttle is awkward and poorly placed, and it's quite honestly an embarrassing product from Logitech, coming from someone who owns a G600 mouse, a G19 keyboard, and a G930 headset. You can't properly fly with this t...
Summary: All around construction feels sturdy enough. The top most button on the joystick doesn't always work proper and the buttons all feel a little flimsy. for the price though you cant really beat it.
Summary: My Logitech Attack 3 just arrived from Amazon and I played around with it for about half an hour. I own a MacBook Pro (5,3) from 2009 and I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I plugged it into a USB slot, fired up a game in DOSBox, and it worked instantly. No drivers or configuration necessary at all.
