Summary: its a great joy stick. very sensitive and accurate. although despite what the reviews said about the buttons being flimsy or cheesy, I disagree. they are made well unless your the radical abusive type. you would have to really beat it up to break it. I highly recommend this product. the handle is very comfortable for me. the throttle is smooth and easy to slide back and forth. I really love it.
Summary: I am surprised I don't see more folks in the flightsim community mentioning this joystick. I have had many, including the expensive saiteks, and this one has become my favorite. I find the spring and cup design used by Saitek to be a joke. I can't believe people pay so much for it. This joystick uses a hall sensor, and the motion and sensitivity is just excellent. Of all the joysticks I have owned, this one produces the finest, smoothest, and most stable inputs of any.
Summary: I have a few flight games that really aren't playable without a stick and this fits the bill perfectly. The control is smooth and responsive with more than enough buttons for any added functionality. I initially thought that the light ring indicating the stick had gone back to center would annoy me but I quickly grew accustomed to it and I now feel that it serves a useful purpose. There is one control that I'm not yet sold on and that is the accelerator slider.
Summary: Very useful to find that this joystick can be readily changed to left handed operation. Operation is very smooth, although some of the thumb buttons feel a little vague. The Top Hat is great. There is too much movement on the main trigger. Apart from that, it's all good. Software is downloaded from the Thrustmaster site and is excellent. The only problem I found with this Joystick is that many games thought it was an xbox controller. Very good value for the money.
My 4th T-16000M I keep buying them because they are the best for the pricepoint.

Summary: This is my fourth T16000m I fly flight sims many hours a day so I wear them out pretty quickly. This stick is very responsive and well set up. The only complaints I have are that the hatswitch is too slick so I always have to add some grip tape to it, also the hatswitch is a little weak. I did break the hatswitch on one of my sticks, but overall it is the best stick for the price.
Summary: This item arrived on time and is an excellent purchase. I like it very much and am VERY glad I ordered it. Thank you so much Amazon.com for the great price, good value and prompt delivery. I use this item frequently.
Summary: I purchased this stick to replace an inexpensive Logitech stick. Wow! What an improvement. No slop. Lights up with pitch/roll movement on stick. Pros: Very crisp Good tension, smooth action Base lights up green with stick input (x & y axis only, not RZ, slider, or buttons) Reversible grip for left handed use Weighted base Quality 'feel' While I think the stick is excellent, I have a few minor complaints: 1: Only 3 buttons on top of stick 2: Buttons on base of stick have...
Summary: Hall effect sensors mean you NEVER need to clean dust out of potentiometers, and better yet, it's got interchangeable side grips and a reversible hand-rest plate, and is otherwise COMPLETELY symmetrical, so it's adaptable for BOTH left and right-handed use. Being a southpaw, myself, that is worth its weight in rhodium (a few orders of magnitude more expensive by weight than platinum).
