Expert Review

While there’s a lot to like about this PC joystick, a few additional features would make it much better. It's well-built and sturdy, with a solid base for long play sessions but there are certainly other models which might not move and shift as much with rigorous use. This joystick is designed with a lot of buttons including an eight way POV hat switch and three 4-way hats for great overall control. It doesn't have quite as many buttons in total as some other joysticks on the market, and they primarily take the form of hat switches on the stick itself.

This is a great joystick that's easy to use, but it would be better if it was a bit larger at the base and had more buttons and controls for effective two-handed use. While there is a throttle wheel on the side, it’s not quite as effective as a separate throttle input which can provide much more sensitive control. If you are comfortable with using a lot of hat switches for input (rather than standard buttons) then this is a great choice, but it just lacks some of the options other models on the market.Rating: 4.25/5
