Summary: The stick: Very impressed with the operation of the stick. It is smooth. I use it to play on line with an old game called "Descent". Once set up in control panel (Win XP) the game found the stick and it set up fine. Given the game was first introduced in the mid 90's that was a concern.
Summary: Really love this stick--well worth the money. Other sticks such as the Logitech 3d extreme may be tempting for their low price, but this stick is worth splurging for. I looked for a new stick after my trusty Logitech Attack 3's throttle broke.
there really aren't a lot of good choices for joysticks and this is a reasonable piece ...

Summary: Jack of all trades and master on none. I bought this because I'm left handed. I appreciate the ability to switch the setup. My biggest complaints are the button switches feeling cheap, the throttle slider being way too sensitive and the base being too light.
Great stick, great price, better than the X-55 stick

Summary: So far, this stick is excellent. I returned an X-55 Rhino as the throttle was terrible (sticky/jerky), and the stick was just too dang big (and I've got fairly large hands). The X-55's spring tension made my hands ache after about half an hour of Elite: Dangerous.
Summary: Picked this up for playing Elite: Dangerous. Haven't had a game that effectively used a joystick for a long time. Construction seems solid. The lighting up with input is kind of annoying, but survivable. Lots of buttons are a definite plus.
