Summary: THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I HAVE PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT AND THE REASON IS VERY SIMPLE. THE 3D PRO IS SIMPLY THE BEST JOY STICK ON THE MARKET. I AM A VIETNAM ERA UH-1 AND OH-6 JOCKEY AND THE 3D PRO GIVES ME THE BEST REALISM. DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR THERE IS NO BETTER BASIC JOY STICK ON THE MARKET IN MY OPINION IF ONE IS LOOKING FOR REALISM AND PERFORMANCE. IN ADDITION, THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE EVER HAD WITH THE PRODUCT WAS DAMAGED I CAUSED MYSELF.
Summary: I've had this for quite some time and it is still working fantastically. I use it via usb, and for me it has been plug and play on every instance of windows 7 and 8 I have used. Windows automatically finds drivers for it and off you go playing games. The stick has the perfect amount of resistance. Not so much you can't move it, not so little it just moves all around. It also very quickly moves back to center position. All buttons work well, and the trigger is very nice.
