Summary: I bought this used from the NOT Amazon.com seller. When I informed him/her that button #6 does not work until it is pressed very firmly, they just said to return it. I suggested that he just give me a little brake on the price and save the shipping expense. No GO.
Summary: I've had this stick now for 7 long years. Not sure if it's always been like this, but it's always been a little wobbly on the up/down and left/right axes. Everything else is ok, although the buttons start to fall apart to a repairable extent after a few years.
