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. With this Attack 3 stick I can use it instead of game pads in those same sports games as it has lots of buttons (like a game pad) that can be programmed.
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: 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. I am a first time joystick owner and i'd recommend it for folks who may or not get serious into joystick gaming.
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. Just instant action. The joystick feels very solid in the hand and has good resistance.
Summary: I read all the reviews on this joystick and was suprised when when it came because some people had said some fairly negitive things about it. I couldn't be happier with the performance of this joystick. The action and ergonomics are extremely good. The stick is smooth and the top and side buttons are well located.
Summary: This joystick is well made but lacks a very important feature, twist-yaw. The base is slightly heavy, spring action feels solid. The button numbers, however, are nearly impossible to read. I'd suggest the Logitech 3D pro if you wanted to stick with this brand.
Summary: The attack 3 joystick is an awesome product for the money. The price is entirely low compared to how well this product works. As a real pilot in training, I have flown some aircraft with joystick style controls, and the Attack 3 joystick has a very realistic feel and tension as compared to the real thing. With a simple movement of the stick, there is a very quick and sharp response in the movement of the aircraft.
Summary: This is a great joystick and it can take a lot of abuse. I use it for flight simulators and as a Handbrake in Live For Speed. I have had it for a few months now and it has never let me down yet. It is easy to set up and to use. Anyone who is looking for something cheap and that will last you a long time should get this!
