  • Summary: unit was a little dirty, had one button missing, and operation was sticky. Overall, a little disappointed with quality since it was advertised as "good" condition. But it works.

and it still works like a charm

Dahway Lin, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this joystick since 2007, and it still works like a charm. The buttons are well placed, and my relatively small hands were able to reach the top buttons and the gimbal stick easily. My only issue with this product is that the base is flimsy, and applying too much force on the stick may cause the base to tilt or move, which can be annoying at times.

Lots of Buttons, etc

charles e jones, Amazon
13 April 2014
  • 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. The item was advertised as working well. Not so.

An ok stick

Aaron, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • 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. Far better than using your keyboard, but a good starting model that you will be looking to upgrade after a while.

A really good flight stick

Rexer, Amazon
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had several joy sticks for multi-player fps (first person shooter) games. One in particular I consider a good one by Logitech. My friend was using this ST290 Saitek and he would beat me in tight combat dogfights with the same fighter. What trickery is this? 9 of 10 I'd lose to him till I borrowed this ST290 Saitek and whooped his 455. I out flew him in tight combat turns. It's not fabricated as well as the Logitech nor does it look as gracious.
