Summary: Logitech didn't to their homework when designing this, so you'll have to make a few adjustments, or you'll run into problems. Simple fixes, but the company really should have done this before shipping the product out. Theres also what they refer to as the 'reversal bug', but it doesn't seem to hinder my enjoyment of the games I play.
Summary: Logitech G940 Review 3-11-11 Just before I ordered Logitech's G940, I ordered and tried the Saitek X52, (not to be confused with the X52 Pro). I fly mostly in FSX, (lately helicopters and stick controlled planes), and have just started flying some of the other 'action' games like Wings over Europe.
Lots of potential, but be aware of what you're getting

Summary: The G940 is a potentially great product that is difficult to give a *star* rating to. The reason is that your experience with it is going to depend hugely on what games you use it with, what your expectations are, and how patient you are. If you are using this stick on a game that is programmed to use FFB effects and these effects have been programmed "correctly" (i.e.
For a flight simmer, this is pretty darn good to have!

Summary: I was given the opportunity to review this flight simmer system. As an avid flight simmer, I was very enthusiastic about the entire set-up of this system, which includes a joystick with force-feedback, rudder pedals and a throttle. Pros: 1. Set-up: Right of of the box, I was impressed with the quality of the equipment. I inserted CD for installation, and within a few minutes I was using the system with my MS Flight Simulator (in this case FSX).
Summary: This product is a very well-built joystick. Many materials are made of metal instead of flimsy plastic, and finish quality is very good. I am using the rudder pedals on hardwood floors and have had no issues with slippage. I would have given this product 5 stars, but the programming for the buttons is overly complicated and relies more on trial and error than just setting your preferences and playing your game.
Summary: It feels like the joystick is a little sloppy in the dead center, but overall it's well built and feels good. I'm not so sure the software is all that good but I'm mostly going to use it with FSX and it works good in that.
Summary: One one hand, you're paying a pretty good sum. On the other, this thing is pretty freakin' awesome. I like: +the force feedback (jerky at times, and there is only feedback on the joystick), +the shape and feel of the controls, +the general craftsmanship. If I could tell past me to buy this or pass it up, I would say buy. It was worth it for me and my nerdy video game peripheral collection. I didn't like: -how long it took to set this thing up.
Summary: This review covers the G940 in general, but specifically talks about using it with Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War , a WWI combat simulator by NeoQB. Joystick: Love the shape of the stick, love most of the buttons, love the coolie hat altho I haven't found a use for it yet in Rise of Flight (would be nice to pan the in-flight map).
Summary: I bought this from Amazon, took the super-saver shipping and received it two days later, on a Thursday evening. The packaging was more than adequate and the controller arrived without a scratch on it. I've now had an entire weekend to play with it so these are my thoughts. I run Windows XP and, like other reviewers, I ignored the CD and downloaded the latest drivers from the Logitech website. The programming software works ok, but is nothing special.
Summary: Fit and finish is flawless. Has a really quality feel to it. The buttons, wheels, hats and switches all feel like good quality stuff. Everything fits in the box very compactly and I would guess that shipping damage may be a frequent complaint. Everything "feels" like premium grade. I really like the rudder pedals which I was worried would be weak. They are very sturdy. Nothing wrong with the external design I can see. Set-up was exactly as I expected.
