Summary: I've had a lot of the same problems with double hits that a lot of other reviewers have reported, but one thing I haven't seen mentioned is that you can switch around the pads by altering which jack each is plugged into. This is very helpful for playing in Rock Band, because as others have mentioned, you are stuck with three pads and a cymbal. However, I plugged the orange cymbal into the green port and moved the pads to yellow and blue and they worked just fine.
Summary: Normally, I'm pretty close to being a Logitech fanboy. All of my mice, half my keyboards and most of my headphones have all been Logitech... but I have no idea how people are giving these things 4 and 5 star ratings. I got this two days ago and right out of the box I noticed that the orange cymbal rattled whenever it moved and only had 3 of the 5 screws around the sensor area.
Great Drum Controller...Well Built...For The Guitar Hero Pro!

Summary: I'm not a professional guitar hero player, so keep in mind my review is from a casual gamer viewpoint. My first impression of this drum controller was the quality of the product. It's pretty sturdy and seems to be well built, not just cheap plastic. For the price, I wouldn't expect anything less. The initial setup takes a few minutes and I had to readjust a few times to get everything where I wanted it.
Summary: The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller set is a quality arrangement of drum heads and cymbals designed to play on your Playstation 2 or 3. It is easy to assemble and only requires 2 AA batteries. Once it is assembled, you plug each drum/cymbal into the drum control center and connect the wireless receiver module into your Playstation via the USB socket and you are ready. The wireless signal is strong and the set can be used from up to 20 feet away from your console.
Summary: I was optimistic about this set, as it appears to be high quality when assembling it. I bought it locally as I feared the technical issues I've read on forums. Pro's: 1. Solid construction. The floor bracing mechanism works well, and the set is sturdy when you play it. 2. Pads have good feel with kick back on the sticks. I didn't think they were too loud. 3. Kit feel is much improved over GHWT and Rock Band kits.
Summary: These drums are very nice and solid, but $230 for a peripheral that cost almost as much as the console itself is REALLY tough to justify. I had no problems with miss-hits and I was able to play Rock Band 2 and after a little adjustment to the placement of the 4th drum it was very nice. The drums don't break down for storage as easily as I hoped, it still take a good 5 mins to setup and tear down when you're done.
High quality construction but a lot to spend on a specialized peripheral and also very loud

Summary: Without a doubt, the Logitech drum controller is a high quality piece of hardware. Supported by a sturdy aluminum frame, this kit is designed to stand up to drumming abuse and survive many rounds of gameplay. The poles supporting the drums and cymbals are also made of metal, and the hitting surfaces are made of a thick rubbery material. The foot pedal is sturdy, springy, and metal-plated for added durability and easier cleaning.
Summary: These drums work very well, although at this price level, it's not unreasonable to expect perfection. There are a couple of things that could have been better. First, the good points. The whole thing is very sturdy, especially the foot pedal, which is heavy and solid. I haven't noticed any missed notes. Also, once the pads are tightened properly, they don't move. The angle of each pad is adjustable with no form of tightening, but they remained firm during play.
