Summary: having previously owned a logitech controller, just not the "cordless" one, i pretty much knew what i was getting with this controller. On the pros side of things, the controller feels great, has plenty of buttons, basically installs itself to your computer ready to use, and works awesome for all emulation (especially ps1 and super nintendo type emulation).
Summary: I just wanted to mention that this controller does, in fact, work perfectly fine in Windows 7, even on 64-bit (which is what I'm running). However, I will say that since I have both a 360 and a PS3, I rarely buy games for my PC that would work well with a controller. But, I have used this with no problems with just about every emulator under the sun, as well with indie games like Cave Story. Also, I've played Lego Star Wars II with it as well, and it works beautifully.
Summary: Played FIFA 2005 using the brand new controller. Works great! First I installed the driver and software as instructed by the manual. Everything was fine. Then a week later, I removed the batteries. When I replaced the batteries, the calibration of the analog sticks were off. And there's no way to re-calibrate using the driver installed. So, I decided to uninstall the driver and software. Then, I used Windows XP's control panel to calibrate the gamepad.
Summary: Another product that shows why Logitech is so popular. It feels solid in every way and I'm sure it will provide good service for a long time. So why only 4 starts? Setup gave me some troubles. It froze two different machines during setup of the driver. But after a hard reboot, the driver seemed to be installed and working. Also, the mapping software for mapping Gamepad controls to keyboard/mouse inputs was not the best (or at least didn't work good for me).
Summary: I've had this controller for nearly a year now. It has worked very well with both racing and flight sim games. It is well built and actually feels more solid in my hands than do most game console controllers. Batteries last months, even with heavy use. The only reason not to have all five stars is because I had a small but easily overcome problem with it yesterday. I went to use my controller after a few weeks sitting idol and it would not connect to the computer.
Summary: This is the 2nd Gamepad I've owned (My first PC was in 1993). The 1st gamepad was the Gravis Gamepad (4-button + D-Pad). I recently upraded and there is no GAME/MIDI port on the new system, plus I need more buttons for Need For Speed Most Wanted, etc. I love this controller. I've had it for two days and have had nothing but excellent results. I've only used it in NFS games (I have them all). The WiFi works flawlessly and I have a WiFi network in my house.
Summary: Probably the best gamepad for PCS from logitech...it rumbles just like console controllers...cordless...and has the basic same feel as other console controllers...more closer to the playstaion one though...keep in mind the rumble funcion doesnt work with all games...and from my experience the controller works best overall with EA games..I play Need for speed most wanted and NBA live 2006....abosolutely no problems...great acuracy and compatibily.
Summary: It has aucuardly placed and sized had-holds, which aren't as big as you'd like. They're noticablly different than, say, the PS2 controler that this controler's modeled after. It is, though, perfect in every other way I can find. Flawless responce, even through walls; sturdy construction; no time lag at all; doesn't interfear with other radio eqipment I have, all's awsome.
Stirred (control sticks), but not Shaken (vibe motors)

Summary: I was looking for a good cordless controller by a brand that I know; Logitech caught my eye. Not that there is a lot of competition in the PC cordless joypad controller market. I have experience with them having bought my joystick ('Extreme 3-D Pro, corded) from them. And while not perfect, it is a good stick, but sticks don't always perform well in certain games. The games I had in mind were GTA: San Andreas and Far Cry, and Halo.
Summary: Short and simple review: Pros - Super easy installation, like installing a USB mouse. - Highly customizeable software profiler for any game - Good button feel; 10 usable buttons, not counting the Dpad and vibration and mode buttons. - Comfortable shape (for small hands), not too light, not too heavy - Good wireless range and freedom, wireless module is conveniently small and unassuming.
