4-0 out of 5 stars Tremendous wheel
I am a hardcore online racing addict spending several hours online racing each night. I have had 3 Logitech Wheels in my time. Logitech Wingman FF, Logitech MOMO Force and Logitech MOMO Driver.

Logitech Momo Racing (my thoughts)
The Good - Full rubber grip. Extended turning range. Very accurate & precise. Strong Force Feedback which can be adjusted. Good pedals. Nice pressure on brake pedal. Fairly long throw on pedals. Stick shift option. 6 buttons on wheel. Easy to instal. Solid construction. Good web site support. Wingman profiler good program to help fine tune setup. Fairly easy to get used to the wheel. Nice times achieved after little practice. 3 clamping system very solid. Wheel looks good. Quality control better than on Logitech Momo Force. Pedals superior the the force model as far as getting better race times.

The Not So Good - have to extend fingers too much to reach gear paddles. Paddles not a solid feel to them. Problem with right gear paddle, double shifts at times. No need for stick shifter. Pedal base too light, slips around unless u put something solid behind it. Plastic pedals instead of metal as on the FORCE model.

Overall - MOMO Racing is a class above Wingman FF as far as getting better race times once u get used to it. I had 2 MOMO Force wheels and had to take them back as various things were faulty. MOMO Racing i feel also has questionable quality control on the Paddle Shifters. Apart from this it is a top product and thorougly recommend it.

Have fun and get a beer into you

3-0 out of 5 stars Just OK
I bought the wheel back in March of this year and for the first 3 months it had worked perfectly. Then a few weeks ago I started to get that wonderful MOMO pedal bug. The pedals are made where they check the calibration every time you push them down. However if you wiggle the pedal while its down the potentiometer reads it as being pushed down further and sets that new rate as what you have to reach in order to get full percentage use out of the pedal. I took the base apart and put the pedals back on tighter, but it still wiggles a bit, and still loses calibration. I will be returning my MOMO.

Seems to be working for me.
I've ready multiple reviews of the paddle shifters breaking on this wheel, but being I use the stick shift, that hasn't happened to me yet :-D I've had the wheel for about 5 months or so now. It hasn't been flawless, unfortunately. I've noticed that the deadzone, when in the calibration window used to be none-existant; it picked up EVERY little change in movement of the wheel... now there is a slight dead zone on it. Hasn't affected my racing, though so that is good. Also, the stick shift knob makes a popping sound every now and then when I shift up... or actually down, because I reverse the default settings.

I actually bought this wheel through Best Buy and I intended to buy their extended warranty thing for it, but I never got around to it. I kind of regret that, because I'd hate to see my $100 wheel stop working on me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Wheel!!!
Let me start off by saying I have only had this wheel for two days. So as far as durability goes I'm not qualified to judge. However in the past two days I have had a hard time letting go of the thing. I play Formula One Sims, (i.e. EA's F1 2002). I had a wingman gp non force feedback. That was not an impressive wheel, esspecially for formula one games it was to light and twitcy, and if you know formula one, the car is already light a twitcy. This wheel rounded the whole package, has a great feel and impresive feedback. Amazing, praying I dont have issues with it like some on here have stated.

5-0 out of 5 stars Momo is the bomb!
Not sure what some of these people are talking about. I've had my Momo and pedals for about 3-4 months now. Need for Speed: Underground is incredible with it. Also, it is durable. I can tend to get a little (ahem!) upset when racing, and the Momo has taken all the punishment and stills plays like it's right out of the box.

Don't let the naysayers dissuade you...buy this wheel! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Questionable build quality, but the price is right...
A few years back you'd pay $150 for a force feedback joystick. Those were the days when serious flight simmers paid top dollar for the best quality they could get. Unfortunately, those days are gone, and force feedback joysticks (along with quality joysticks in general) are fewer in number than ever, and not as good as they used to be. Now that MS has stopped making Sidewinder products, and Logitech replaced their older (and better) Wingman Force stick with this one, there's not a lot of choice left if you want force feedback. On the positive side, the price is now much lower than it used to be.

I'm on my second one of these sticks... the first one I got from Amazon had a defective motor in it. Other than that, the initial feel of this stick is actually pretty good - better than I expected, based on the other reviews - and if I hadn't gotten a defective unit I'd probably give it a higher score. But taken with some of the other problems I've read about here, I have to think there are probably some real quality control issues with this stick. I can say definitively that this model is not nearly as solid as either MS's last force feedback stick or Logitech's previous model. But both of those sticks were built like tanks. At least the buttons all feel really nice on the Force 3D; solid but clicky and springy, and with a nice throttle with the perfect amount of resistance. The hat switch works well too - much better than my old Sidewinder Precision Pro (and it's concave now, just to update what an earlier reviewer said about previous revisions).

As for the force feedback itself, it's not the best but it's not bad either. If you're a flight simmer you will probably appreciate having force feedback - this is not really a stick that's intended for other types of games. It's a flight stick, and it does add a lot to the realism of flight sims to be able to feel things like ground bumps and aerodynamic forces on your airplanes (some sims even let you feel things like turbulence). The force effects by default are strong enough, but you can make them stronger if you want to (some people have complained that the effects feel weak, but you can really crank them up with Logitech's included utility). It can be surprisingly forceful given how light the stick is. That said, the motors do feel like they're straining if you really crank it up.

Centering is always an issue with force feedback sticks because they rely on the motors for centering rather than springs. Some people prefer a standard stick for this reason. Unlike some older force feedback sticks that use a combination of cables and motors for centering and other non-force effects, this stick seems to use only motors, so the centering doesn't feel very smooth - it feels very digital, like the motors have a certain number of levels (which feel like detents) where they will allow the stick to rest. It's hard to explain, but the result is if you push the stick in one direction, it's almost like it "clicks" as it goes through the various levels of resistance from the motors. This is constant and there's no way around it; you just have to get used to it. It's not that hard, but it's definitely a different feel from an analog stick that uses cables and springs for centering.

Some have complained about stick sensitivity with this model; I haven't had a problem in Flight Simulator 2004, which is all I've used it for. Even with the loose "dead spot" when centered, if you just take the stick sensitivity down a couple notches in the game settings it's absolutely fine. The centering right in the middle is definitely a bit loose but it doesn't seem to really matter much, and it's a common issue with most force feedback joysticks.

Overall, I'm glad I purchased mine, but I would probably have rather paid more for a better stick. I feel this is priced about what it's worth. Whether you want force feedback or not is a question in itself; if you're not sure, this is a good stick to test out, being as cheap as it is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Wingman is better then Sidewinder Joystick
I was a MS controller junky all the way, until I got this controller as a gift one year. I'm impressed; it is way more stable then the MS Sidewinder I was using. I had more control in the corners on NASCAR 3 and 4; Jane's Flight Sims really liked it. I could pause mid barrel roll and hang there, never could get the Sidewinder to do that. Also the Logitech feels better. Tighter compared to the loose flopping feel of the sidewinder. I now have two Wingmans, one for each computer, and they are still going strong. I'm not knocking the Sidewinder line completely, but when it comes to Joysticks, MS has some work to do, to catch up to this one. The controller has a game port connector with a USB adapter cable. It works great under USB.

Also Win XP sees is it, likes it, and loads it. I don't like the Logitech software, but of course I don't like Sidewinders software either.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent with practise
I've had this stick for nearly 9 mos, and used it very little at first, preferring my non-ff logitech stick because this one seemed too out of control. After getting bored with a certain game, I took up this stick as a challenge, and am pleased with the results.

The FF is ok, nothing special, but once you have it set up with your comp and your game (this took quite a while and a lot of experimentation), I won't go back to non-ff. I actually get a feel for when my plane will stall, which is so necessary in flight sim games (been playing il2 FB). The on-stick throttle is pretty good and is not loose.

My biggest problem with this product is that the center spring doesn't really center, and seems to be in the ++ section a bit (upper right), which sometimes causes my plane to roll or pitch forward.

All in all, ok stick for the money. FF is great, but I'll be heading toward a better, more expensive stick after this.

1-0 out of 5 stars a dissapointed customer
i bought this joystick a while ago and never used it much. at first i strictly used it for racing games so i never knew that it was broken. when i push foward it only regesters a little bit and when i put it back to its original position it thinks im pushing down and messes up my gameplay. it has no nutrel position, it dosent spring back to the right position and leans to the bottom. every time i plug in the FF it starts to violently shake foward and back, even during gameplay, but without it the nutrel position is even more indefinite. as for the stick itself, the palm rest on it tends to make you shift the weight of your hand to the right and taking the stick along with it.

the problems with the FF and the controls might have been because of damage during shipping or someting like that, but it could happen to you. anyway, im not happy with this design, get a sidewinder.

4-0 out of 5 stars Really a pleasant surprise.
I am a big fan of all things cordless, and so I thought I might try a cordless joystick. My reference point has been 5 faithful years of service from a Microsoft Sidewinder Pro.
The Logitech installed easily in WinXP. I ran the included CD, plugged the tiny USB transmitter into an open USB (2.0) port on the back of my PC, and then installed the batteries (3 AAs) into the stick itself. Synchronization took 5 seconds; I pressed the button on the front of the transmitter box and then a (any) button on the stick, and it was done. I used the software to calibrate in 2 minutes and was ready to fly.
Flying in MS FS2002 was very good with this stick. The 10 buttons on the stick are a snap to program with the software.
In my other flight sim, Fighter Ace 3.5, it wasn't as smooth a result. The kinds of ACMs required by a combat sim are necessarily more precise and I've just had a difficult time getting the right amount of damping. Maybe I'll get the hang of it as time passes, but for now my kill ratio has crashed.
The stick itself is well built and quite nicely layed out (i.e. good ergonomics). It sits comfortably on my lap, is light weight without being flimsy and its base is very easy to grasp. I have every confidence it will not break easily.
Overall, I'm encouraged. I hate clutter and the lack of one more cable on my desktop makes me happy. Of course, if I keep getting lit up, it'll be back to the Sidewinder, but for now I'm working on it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, Agile, Cordless - it's simply the best!
I purchased the 'Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2' joystick, and it is not as great as it seems. I was very interested in purchasing the 'Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick' because of the way it looked, and the fact that it is cordless!

There were no reviews on Amazon.com, so I was a bit uncertain about this joystick, and went with Microsoft's joystick. I came across a review on the 'Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick' in Maximum PC magazine. The only drawback for this joystick was the fact that it relied on AA batteries (because it is cordless), which do not provide enough juice for the force feedback effects. So if you're not into that much force feedback, then this is the joystick for you. I thought that I'd post a review for this joystick for people to decide whether or not to get this joystick over some of the other ones. Here is the review from the magazine:

'Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick: Sturdy, agile, cordless ' it's simply the best. Odds are that every Maximum PC reader has the same problem: thanks to all the gamepads, mice, keyboards, digital cameras, speakers, MP3 players, and networking equipment you've got hooked up, there's a rat's nest of wires behind your PC. Wireless peripherals are the obvious solution, but no hardcore gamer would trust his online reputation to a flaky wireless joystick, would he?

But what if the stick wasn't flaky? We've been using the Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick for about a month now, and from a reliability standpoint, it's virtually indistinguishable from a weird joystick. Its 2.4GHz wireless connection to your PC is every bit as responsive and sensitive as the cable that gets wrapped around your chair and trips you when you stand up.

Because it's wireless, the Freedom 2.4 relies on three AA batteries for power ' and they don't provide enough juice for force feedback effects, so you can cross that feature off your list (a non-issue for the many people who just don't care for force feedback). The good news is that the batteries provide a sturdy ballast for the base and prevent it from sliding around on most desks.

We were especially impressed with the three-axis stick itself. It sports six buttons, including the trigger and an eight-way hat switch. All the buttons are easily accessible, even for a gamer with unusual hands (large, small, it doesn't matter). Along with an analog throttle, there are four more buttons on the stick's base.

This is the perfect stick for the casual joystick gamer. Anyone who likes to hop into a Spitfire in 'Battlefield 1942', play an occasional round of 'Crimson Skies', or enjoy space-based slaughter in 'Independence War' will find this stick to be perfectly suitable. That said, Flight-Sim fanatics will be better served by picking up a more 'realistic' controller with more buttons and hat switches.'

Pros: A great wireless joystick with more than enough options for any arcade-style flyer.

Cons: Wireless design precludes force feedback. Not optimal for hardcore flight sims.

2-0 out of 5 stars Wears out quickly
Just as the other Logitech joysticks I've owned, the Freedom 2.4 cordless joystick lost calibration. Maybe not as quickly as the Attack 2 or the Extreme 3D Pro did, but the result is the same. I did get a couple of months out of the Freedom 2.4 before the controller stopped working properly. And I'm not even a serious gamer! Oh, and don't bother trying to contact Logitech about the quality of their products. They won't respond. I've tried 3 of their controllers because they've been all I've been able to find on the shelves here. Let the consumer beware!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Perfect joystick -- until..
..the microswitches of the POV switch loose contact (bad solder points) or the X/R-axis potentiometers wear out (after 1-6 weeks). The latter just happened to my 5th (!) Freedom 2.4 after 3 weeks (the former doesn't happen if you resolder them switches after you unpacked the stick..) I'm done w/ Logitech until they change back to non-mechanical pickups for the X/Y/R axis (like the Interceptor.) I'd recommend the Logitech WingMan Extreme Digital 3D or (if you can get your hands on one..) the Microsoft Force Feedback 2 (red skin edition). Stay away from the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick -- the pot problem is worse w/ that one !

2-0 out of 5 stars Dunno about the analog stick yet, but...
The directional pad simply sucks. I've only had it for a day, and despite the overally comfort and setup ease of this controller, the directional pad is another one of those "nearly impossible to just hold up without going diagonal as well" pads. You push up, and 95% of the time you will either be going up+right or up+left, and ditto for all other directions, down, left or right.... its the most frustrating thing in the world, ever try playing a game like Silent Hill on one of these controllers? Its a nightmare (no pun intended)

2-0 out of 5 stars What a piece of junk!
This controller doesn't stay calibrated for longer than a few seconds before going kaput, and the digital controls don't work for anything requiring holding them or rapid action.

2-0 out of 5 stars I paid $18 for this?
This is the only computer USB game controller I have seen at Wal-Mart, so, since I enjoy using them for multiplayer games, I bought two. One worked fine for a while, but now the left stick doesn't work, the other one didn't work from the second I removed it from it's packaging. The left stick won't register down, and there's no way to calibrate it. Don't buy this product!

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from this!
Don't buy it. If people will stop buying this gamepad then Logitech will start taking customers' feedback seriously.
This gamepad is a waste of money. The Internet is full of complains about this pad, all with same problems. We are not fools, we have been robbed, period. Yes, there maybe be 2 people that were happy with it, but there are thousands that only wasted their money. If you want to take the chance and try to be one of those 2-3 lucky people, then buy it. My suggestion is to not buy anything else from Logitech anymore. Not only they robbed me, they didn't even pay attention to my complains.
Not 2, but a THOUSAND of thumbs down!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Great controls that don't last long
When I first bought the Logitech Dual Analog game pad the controls were the best and it was recommended for EA Sports games. After awhile the game pad would connect and disconnect. Then, the left analog stick would not move to the right and I found my currently controlled player moving on it's own. I bought another one and that one broke too. Too bad the controller doesn't last long. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok Wheel
Well, this wheel did not meet my expectations. I evaluated it by playing Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec. The Force Feedback feels unrefined, sometimes it feels like its pulling for no reason. When you hit the ripple pads (red and white lines) the feedback is inconsistent, sometimes you feel it, sometimes you don't. The shifters are neat, however you can't use them while cornering. If you are coming out of a corner and try to downshift its very cumbersome. The wheel doesn't feel real enough for me to justify the (current price). It does work with the PC though as I used it with Midtown Madness 2. No Force feedback on the PC however. Even after I tried installing the drivers for logitech's other PC force wheels. Overall, the wheel is good, has reasonable feedback, good embedded PS2 controls and paddle shifters.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wheels can be tricky..this one's great!!!
Often times, switching to a driving wheel from a regular controller can seem strange. You connect a wheel controller to your computer or console, and you expect it to FEEL exactly like driving. Let's face it, that's a tall order. But the Logitech Force Feedback wheel is REALLY good. I just purchased Gran Turismo 3 for Playstation 2, and this wheel works great with it. Compared to other wheels, this one doesn't oversteer and you get to use the whole range of motion, rather that just being able to use a small arc of the steering wheel's movement. The feedback feels accurate, when the car slides you feel a loss of traction - when it bites, you feel it. I'm going back to racing now...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to PS2
Bought this wheel after using a Logitech wheel for the PC and loved it, ... Feed back is a little inconsistant while taking large corners but you have to remember, this is a game not real life. Wheel response is more than acceptable for making your PS2 driving games more realistic ... Logitech pedal base could be bigger with better grip for whatever floor it is on. Based from my personal experience, if you are stuck ... buy the Logitech and let the wanna-be's have the Madcatz. The logitech is well worth the extra [money].1-0 out of 5 stars waste of time and money!!!!!!!
first of all i bought this wheel on recomendation, and i regret it. you will try to go in a straight line gran turismo and you will end up some where in the grass, i gar-on-tee it. this wheel has ruined my life dont let it ruin yours, the only thing that was kind of cool about the wheel was the force feedback but it just gets annoying after a few laps. dont buy this wheel!!!!!!!!!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Force Feedback Wheel For The PS2
I was a little disipointed with this product. I had a higher expectation that this product was going to be like real racing, sorry to say fokes, but, force feedback only simulates real life force feedback it does not give real life justice. Other than that the wheel was ok, it deffinetly made my racing experiance a little more interesting that trying to race with a flimsy joy-stick. If there is anyone out there reading this review and thinks i am wrong, than please, after using the force feedback wheel, race in a gocart at masimum speed on a dirt road, or, race a nascar like vehicle sports car and you will understand what i am saying. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Wingman Wheel is fun!
The product arrived in 2 days in good order. It is a good quality wheel with a good feel. The pedals are large enough and well spaced. The wheel comes with an installation CD and a bundled game. The biggest problem I had was during installation. At one point it asks for you to insert the Windows '98 CD into the drive. My Dell computer did not include this CD so I was stuck without a necessary driver. After some time searching the internet, I was able to get the driver and complete the installation. Once over this hurdle, everything went well. The wheel is easy to set up and it works with all the games I have tried. The 6 buttons are easy to program for shifting gears, lights, horn or whatever you wish. By the end of the day the whole family was engrossed in Need For Speed - High Stakes. The force feedback experienced with most games is amazing! You will feel bumps and turns and other cars hitting you. One thing to note is that if you have a heavy foot, the pedals may slide away from you, even on carpet. I have not used other force feedback wheels but I could definitely recommend this one an excellent option!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, perfect, best buy
I bought it a long time ago now (almost 2 years maybe) and I have been using it on my PC, the USB connector is simply "simple" to use, I used it on some F1 and Rally games.

Even MORE! the wheel is PS2 compatible so I play GT3 with it every since I discovered it......I didn't even know it was compatible until I saw a drawing of the PS2 wheel and saw it was a Logitech brand........I just connected it and it did work! Amazing!

I agree with another review when I say that it slips a little, but I managed to use a "basement" with books and some boxes, I can put it on a very comfortable position now.

Now for the feeling....ever drove at 200mph? well, so far I have reached 85mph only and I can tell you something, the problem is not the wheel, is the seat....it is great to feel the apexes, the bumps, the ground, I cannot imagine what else can you feel with just your hands. Try to play with some real gloves, balaclava and helmet and tell me what you feel now!

I am looking forward to GP4, TOCA3 and any other racing game I can play and hopefully God will bless me with an eternal whell for the decades to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get it!
I ordered the Logitech Wingman Formula Force GP w/ foot pedals on a late Sunday afternoon, using the super saver free shipping. I believe Amazon reports that the free shipping takes 7 - 9 days to be delivered? Tuesday afternoon at 4pm, almost exactly 48 hours later, the wheel was at my house! It arrived in a brand new, excellent, unscathed condition.

I took the wheel out and mounted it to the lip of my computer desk using the two screw down plastic clamps provided underneath the wheel. I thought the clamps looked flimsy, and would probably break easily! However, I have been playing for days now and the wheel is completely stable and does not move nor suffer from "plastic flex"! Just make sure you do _not_ overtighten them when you screw them down! Just get them secure, they WILL hold if you do it properly. I find the wheel to be the perfect size for my desk, I can keep it attached and use my keyboard and mouse without any problems at all.

Next, I positioned the foot pedals on the floor. My desk has a bottom board, and I put the foot pedals up against it so they won't slide. They have a jack similar to a telephone, and it plugs directly into the righthand side of the wheel. The A/C adapter plugs in next to the phone-jack type port for the pedals, and is very lightweight!

Then, I started up my computer and installed the software. You put the disk in, and it comes up with a menu that lets you install it. If you already have another Logitech device, such as a Wingman joystick, then you don't need to install the software! It uses the same stuff! Once the software is installed, you simply plug the USB connector into your computer, and POOF! The system will immediately make any changes it has to, and you can start using your wheel! I would strongly suggest a calibration before use.

The wheel and pedals are very durable, and work flawlessly. The paddle shifters are easy to reach and use! I find the best game to use this wheel with is Need for Speed: Underground. They make a great combo.

It takes a slight breaking in period to get used to using a wheel. While it makes the game very realistic, remember that it is still up to the game programmers to provide good game physics for using it! I've also played with a Microsoft Force Feedback wheel at a friend's house, and I like this Logitech a lot better!

1-0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Wheel is better
This wheel is perfectly centered, until you plug in the usb. Then it goes off center by almost 45 degrees. It has a grinding feel like it needs to be oiled. It also sqeaks when turning. Driving with the wheel off center makes it harder to reach the buutons. Go Microsoft.

3-0 out of 5 stars Little too jerky
Overall a good buy for the money. Wheel is very jerky and too sensitive in Nascar racing and Indy Car racing. Turning on Steering assist in Nascar racing smooths things out but some online leagues don't allow this. Pedals are OK. Spaced very well. Brake pedal feels very sensitive. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Ps2 controller period.
I always liked the quality of Logitechs products and wanted the convenience of a wireless when playing my games in bed so I didn't hesitate to purchase this. Very good quality, feels good in the hands with just the right amount of weight to it. Sturdy and well made. some guys here complained about broken analog sticks but I think the problems were due to them just being a bit abusive with their stuff. These are very well made. I have an updated model slightly different from the picture. Logitech must have responded to the complaints of hands slipping off the analog sticks. The new controller has black rubberized sticks that are not concave. The only complaint I have is the placing of the select and start button so close to the analog sticks. Requires a little bit of dexterity in the fingers! Other than that this is a superb wireless. A

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good product.
I bought this product to solve 2 problems:
1) My dog chewed up 3 of my DualShock2 controller wires.
2) Messy controller wires in the living room.

Overall I am very pleased with this product. Basically, install the batteries which are included then you are ready to go. I played few hours and found that responses were very good. I didn't notice any drop out in signal or delays. I can now lie comfortable in bed without all the wires or having to yell at my dog for getting near the wire. D-pad is very comfortable to use. I used the D-pad more than the analog stick.

There are some complaints. 1) As you can imagine from holding 4-AA batteries, this thing is big. If you have small hands, you may have hard time holding this comfortably. 2) Analog stick is very slippery. I am considering putting two-sided tape on it because my finger kept slipping off the stick. 3) Because of the size L&R buttons are hard to reach if you have small or medium sized hands. 4)Analog stick response is not as good as DualShock 2. That's common to all third party controllers for Playstation. It's much more sensitive. This may be due lack of grip on the stick.

Ergonomically, there are some problems but it's works well. It's the only real choice for wireless PS2 controller.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great , but Some lost signals or broken buttons
When I first got this, I loved it. I've had it for about a year. So, I was playing a racing game, and I was holding the X to go and then suddenly, I slowed down. After that it still didn't work so good. It even happened in other games. I even tried changing the batteries. This is still a great controller because it only does it sometimes.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not strong enough....
Mine has broken twice, left analog stick broken (always forces the movement down). Can't recommend without an insurance policy, the product is just too weak.

Update: Another one of these broke on me. The left analog stick gets "stuck" in the down position and there is a fine white dust eveident arount the base of the analog stick. I'd say stay away from this one, which is too bad because it is quite responsive and has good battery life. One other thing, the controller will quit responding if too close to a ringing 2.4 GHZ cordless phone.

1-0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!
I HAVE REPLACED THIS PRODUCT THREE TIMES NOW WITH THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. THE LEFT ANALOG CONTROLLER STICKS AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOU CAN DO. IT IS NOT JUST ME, GO TO THE LOGITECH PAGE AND LOOK THROUGH THE DISCUSSION BOARDS AND YOU WILL SEE THE SAME ISSUE. THIS IS A VERY EXPENSIVE CONTROLLER TO HAVE SUCH A HUGE PROBLEM. I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THIS IS ISOLATED SINCE I HAD THREE IN A ROW DO THE SAME THING VERY SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASE.

PURCHASERS SHOULD WAIT FOR THE CHEAPER VERSION OF THIS CONTROLLER THAT LOGITECH IS COMING OUT WITH (SEE THEIR PRODUCT CATALOG ON THEIR SITE). SAVE YOUR MONEY ON THIS LEMON! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Joystick, Heavy Base, Good Feel, Works Like It Should
I'm only writing this because I think the review, the only review at this point, is misleading. I have used the Attack 3 joystick for over a year now with WinXP and I haven't had one thought about this joystick working or not working, it just always worked. I think that it should have been obvious that there was something wrong with the system, not the joysticks, especially given that not one of the three they sent ever worked.
At least they were under warranty!

Anyway, I fly flight sims almost daily and have used this thing, no problems, and have been happy for two reasons: It has a comfortable solid feel and it doesn't skimp on the number of buttons. But because I use this for flying, I wish it had an eight way hat switch instead of the 4 directional buttons at the top so that I could not only look up, down, left, and right, but I could look up-left, up-right, and so on.

In summary, this joystick is a good value because for the price you pay you get the comfort, durability, and functionality that you will not get with joysticks from other companies. Logitech does not make products like the first reviewer describes or they would have been out of business a long time ago!

1-0 out of 5 stars Did they ever test these things?
If I can stop just one person from buying an Attack 3, I'll be satisfied. Thinking that third time's a charm, I'm on my third stick in five months. Same problem every time. It's fine for a week, until like others have said, the X-axis starts behaving erratically, and eventually becomes uncontrollably wild.

I've even gone so far as using third-party software to try and adjust the dead-zones and calibration readings. Alas, the Attack 3 overcomes them all, the sensor readings are rabidly epileptic, and beyond help.

If you're looking for a budget stick, STAY AWAY. If you own one, take it back, it doesn't get better or 'settle in'.

This stick is going back for the third time and I will no longer buy any Logitech products. I'd have been happy to pay an extra $20 for a well made, durable controller, but Logitech have contracts with every major store to sell this piece of junk and other, slightly higher priced junk, so buying an alternative brand is a hassle, a goose chase and a long drive.

Edit: To electronics fan - you misread my review. The Attack 3 works great - for about a week. Try using it for something that requires quick changes in direction for long periods of time, a racing game for example. You can't exactly test out the stick gently ambling along in a 747. The calibration readings become erratic and then unusable. It's not my system, because there's other reviewers out there that have the same problems. Search Google. I'll say it again - a cheap stick, with cheap components and awful quality control. Best avoided. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best wheel I ever owned!!
This wheel is an unbelievable product and value, not just for the price but at any price. Thats the bottom line.

If you have Nascar Thunder '03 or any other racing game for the cube, you must get this wheel! I was skeptical at first because every console wheel I have ever owned was useless. This wheel does not just rumble it actually has force feedback, meaning the wheel pulls back to center and against you just as if you were in a real car. In Nascar Thinder '03, if you set the car up loose the wheel will be loose. If you change the wedge to tighten up the car during a pit stop, the wheel will tighten up as well. If you are in career mode and your chasis is in bad condition, the wheel center position will shift and will make it harder to steer properly.

It has all of the buttons on the wheel that the standard controller has minus the C-stick and analog stick (you dont need them). While the pedals are not necessary, I reccomend them because they provide a better overall experience. The wheel improved my performance on the track vs. a controller by 3 or 4 seconds on each lap.

The wheel is well constructed and surpassed all my expectations. Same for the pedals. Logitech has a great quality product that is OFFICIALLY licensed by Nintendo (the only wheel to be so) and works great. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sw337 ann L337
This controller is really sweet. I bought this for a game I'm really looking forward too, One Must Fall: Battlegrounds. Installation was painless in XP, doesn't require you to install drivers but the rumble feature requires the drivers. The range is great and is perfect if you game on your TV. Coz you could get the best of both PC and Console Worlds: playing PC games while sitting on your couch! I really don't have any complaints about this product... heck for the price I paid...it is definitely worth every penny. I probally wouldn't buy it for above $40 though.
Props to Logitech for making another quality product, this is the 4th logitech product I have (wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, Z540 Speakers, and this gampad), guess how much I paid for all that ... $42!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Neat concept. Poor Execution.
The Logitech Cordless Rumblepad is a neat concept, but it sadly, hardly delivers.

The buttons and sticks do have a nice feel to them, and are quite responsive, but the problem lies in the design itself.

First and foremost, would be the shape and weight. Being cordless, it requires quite a number of AA batteries. No one wants to play video games using an ungainly controller that weighs sixty-four pounds.

As another reviewer noted, this pad is notorious for calibration problems. Soon after I recieved it, my left analog stick failed. Normally I wouldn't care, as I don't use them, but now it's always sending X+/- to the PC, causing anything I play to go crazy.

This is also a dual mode controller, with the D-Pad configured to also act as a hat control. Normally this wouldn't pose a problem, unless you're intending to play MAME or other emulator ROMs on this controller. It's not an 8-way Directional pad. You'll find that your common "Forward, Down, Down-Forward, Button" movements in fighting games are quite hard to execute.

All in all, I'd say pass this one up, even if the size and weight issues aren't... uh. issues.. for ya.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY
This product is useless, as hundreds of people can tell you if you google search for calibration problems. The pad has a hardware problem which causes the left analog stick to break after a few minutes of use. You have to unplug it and plug it back in every few minutes to recalibrate the stick. Logitech refuses to fix it, so DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Pad, Terrible Longevity
If Logitech's corded WingMan RumblePad had the same design and ergonomics, I would have gotten that. However, it did not and I fell in love with the feel and action of the Logitech Cordless RumblePad.

What I feel is great about this pad is everything except the cordless facet of it. There are no hard edges or loose feel to any of the parts. There is nice, solid feel and feedback to the D-Pad (I prefer the solid concave disc, less fatigue). The dual joysticks are also concave which is nice on the thumbs. They also move and feel just like the sticks on the DualShock PS1/PS2 gamepad which is good. The buttons on the Cordless RumblePad are solid and have a good action to them. There are no harsh edges to dig into your skin. There are no loose, hard-plastic reactions or noises to these buttons. And the hand extensions are perfect for my hands. Once again there are no harsh edges and everything is contoured to fit comfortably. The rumble effect is just like the DualShock as well. It's neat and sometimes helpful, but really isn't necessary. Fortunately, Logitech allows you to control whether the Rumble effect is on or off (major battery conservation in having it off). I never had any problems installing this gamepad or getting it to work within games, until recently.

Gamepads are a seasonal item. They're only good for certain games. Often they are necessary for ported Console games. Which brings me to my present. I have the urge to replay Final Fantasy VII and VII on the PC. These games cry for a gamepad, so I fetched my WingMan Cordless RumblePad. After a week of web research I have discovered the my receiver is dead. And that this has happened to numerous WingMan Cordless RumblePad owners who have had their gamepad for a year or more.

There are no replacement receivers sold. The best advice offered is to "try" Logitech Tech Support. :(

With a decent set of rechargeable batteries (total of 4 AA, 8 if you want to hot-swap them) and a good rechargeable battery recharger that drains all the power from the batteries before it recharges them, you will have the best wireless rumblepad for a year. And then after that year you may find yourself with a dead receiver. And after it becomes a lost cause through normal avenues, you may find yourself wanting to open that receiver to see if you can find the short or whatever is causing the problem. You'll find the screw in the bottom holding things together isn't alone and that the seam on the receiver is sealed with some kind of ACME Super Glue and give up.

Wish me luck. I'm off to find a replacement gamepad.

3-0 out of 5 stars Average Overall
I am a long time XP user that just recently got into gaming because of my new PC. I got this controller because I was tired of the old mouse and keyboard action. To my dismay, all most all of the games that I got do not allow the use of the game pad. The games even ignore the custom set-up profiler. And I have found NONE of my games support the rumblepad function. Overall feel is great and the cordless ness is the best. Responsiveness is also top-notch. If more games support this controller and it's rumblepad it would be great buy, but right now I would only recommend this controller if it were on sale or if wireless ness was a requirement. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars It take a little getting used to.....
Okay, so the pedals don't feel like real automobile pedals. It's a gaming device, people! I'm looking for realism plus fun, and that's what I got. True, it does take a considerable amount of practice to get used to it. Especially if, like me, you've spent years mashing keyboard buttons to play driving games. I'ts a LOT harder using the wheel and pedals, but a heck of a lot more fun! To answer Pedro Couto e Santo's question in his earlier review: 'So... what's the point to buying a steering wheel and pedals if you can actually play driving games better on your keyboard?'. The answer is you can't play driving games with the wheel and pedals the same way you play with the keyboard. You have to re-learn everything. Have fun with your re-education!

1-0 out of 5 stars I must be doing something wrong
I can't help but rate this item very low. I've been going through the other reviews and I don't understand how people are having so much fun with this.

I've tested this mainly on Colin McRae Rally 2, and CMR 3. The games are really great driving games, and CMR3 even detected the Wingman Formula GP before I installed the logitech software. But driving in these games using this wheel is a series of zig-zags through the rally tracks!

It's terribly annoying, you spend more time trying desperatly to aim the car at the road, steering left and right furiously, than actually concentrating on the race, the curves and your timing.

I've played some tracks dozens of times and up to now, using the wheel, I simply cannot beat the time I did with the keyboard on my first try!

So... what's the point to buying a steering wheel and pedals if you can actually play driving games better on your keyboard?

4-0 out of 5 stars Steering Wheel for PS2
Great and fun no matter what age.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the money!
This product is awsome! You get the most for your hard-earned money! If your getting a racing wheel and pedals, this one beets them all. It is also better to get a used because it's ...cheaper, and the used are still in working condition or better. I recomend games like: driver, nascar 2000,or Need for Speed:3 hot pursuit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Economical wheel to make driving games more fun
For the price, this wheel is an easy way to make driving games more fun. It has fairly good response but don't expect it to operate like a real automobile. Neither the wheel or peddles (gas/break) are as remotely sensitive as a real car but this is after all, just a gaming device and it gets the job done. The software loads easily and works on Windows XP right off the CD. It is also recognized by older software versions like Need For Speed II.

The one caveat is that you should have a flat, fairly smooth surface on which to mount the wheel and you should fasten it on tightly because if you don't, the wheel easily dislodges during the middle of the game and ruins your run. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good pad, Shoddy construction
I'll get the bad stuff out of the way first:
This pad is a very poorly contructed device. Both sticks have come right off several times, the first two buttons have taken to making an annoying clicking sound, and that throttle slider falls off ALL THE TIME. The last time it came off, it was trampled and nearly broken. If it wasn't for Microsoft's idiotic swapping of the left thumbstick and D-pad on the X-Box controller, I'd be using that controller instead (the X-Box controller uses a USB interface).

On the good side, the Wingman Pad is a great staple for the PC gamepad market, setting the standard with its basic features and design. The throttle makes me think Logitech was aiming to compete against joysticks with this pad. It ain't gonna happen. That space isn't large enough for a quality throttle slider, and it poses problems that I've already mentioned. The mode switching is pretty cool (as I use the pad mainly for emulators, I need the D-pad to function as such when playing, say, Super Nintendo, but I use mode switch to use the left stick when playing Nintendo 64).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Pad
Before buying this pad, I looked at every other single one that was being sold on amazon first. There were others that looked better but I didnt want to spend 40 bucks on just a pad. This one looked good, only 27 bucks. I was expecting it to be a fairly good one, because the price was lower than others like it, but I was amazed! The pad is great, it has 2 analog sticks, a regular directional pad and 9 buttons and a slider.

The gamepad works great with EA games, try getting NHL 2001 to go along with it. I even got two pads so I could play with my friends. It also has two modes, you can switch it so that the analog sticks work as a directional pad, helpful for games like Frogger where you only need to go in 4 directions. The controller also works well with Playstation games released on the computer, for example Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2.

(I am running a Dell 1.8 ghz computer with Windows ME and I havn't encountered any problems. It comes with its own calibration software.)

2-0 out of 5 stars Wingman, what a waste of money
I bought this controller thinking it would be top of the line, but after having it for about a week, everything just started to go wrong. The first thing then went bad were the joy sticks, if you goto the game controller properties in the control pannel ou will notice that even though the joy sticks are still, the properties show them moving slightly. I accepted this imperfection but then then one of the buttons just completely died, i called logitech, which by the requires to you to pay long distance charges. I was able to get a replacement for the controller. Also from what i read in logitech press-releases while trying to get my problem fixed it seems like the wingman 2 should be out in the fall, so if you can wait it might be definitly worth your while.

1-0 out of 5 stars awful waste of money
This is a terrible product. It broke the day after its first use, and it makes gameplay more difficult. It is unfortunate that many games require this controller, because it is a difficult to use piece of junk. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road stick
I bought this stick with great expectations and was really disappointed. I'll try to be informative.
- Stick is too loose, even with power to the stick. Too much play before the stick actually registers movement.
- Tried increasing tension of stick with the utility and it doesn't help.
- The effects were solid, but once again making any accurate/fine movements with the stick is impossible.

Maybe this would be a good supplemental stick, I don't think it's fit for duty as your main gaming stick. I ended up with a Sidewinder Precision Pro 2. Now that's a good stick.

2-0 out of 5 stars How the mighty have fallen... off to the left.
Sorry Logitech, I love your keyboard, but your joystick leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I picked up the stick to do a little flying in Battlefield 1942 (BF). Now, given that BF could use a little more spit and polish in the joystick support department, the WingMan Strike Force 3D didn't meet my expectations.

It installed quickly and easily, no problems there. When I finally got around to the calibration phase, the stick seemed a bit loose and would pull to the left. I thought I could compensate by trying to calibrate so it would read the pull as the center, right? Wrong. Once I fired up BF, I was constantly having to compensate by pulling the stick to the right, which would throw off my ability to turn right (imagine flying a two engine plane with one engine out).

Needless to say, it's going back to the store tomorrow morning. I'll opt for a non-force feedback system for now (alot of the BF players have been complaining about not getting their Force Feedback sticks to work). I've heard good things about Microsoft's Precision Pro (non-Force Feedback), and even Logitech's WingMan Extreme 3D (non-Force Feedback). Until I can sock away [$$$] for the Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar, I'll keep trying to find a moderately priced stick that works well (I don't think that's too much to ask).

I suppose I should also note, that when I was out looking at sticks earlier in the day, I noticed that a few of the WingMan's rubber boots around the stick and the base were starting to crack.

Oh, one last thing, at the time of my writing this ..., Amazon has the wrong WingMan pictured. The Strike Force 3D has a wheel (similar to your mouse's wheel) off to the left side, with a button on both sides. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Best mouse I ever had!
I have been using the Ifeel mouse for over a year now. Even without the vibrations, this is the best mouse I ever owned.
I have Microsoft Intellimouse and my office and Logitech Ifeel at home. They are both excellent optical mice (no ball on the bottom). I prefer the Logitech Ifeel because it seems a little more accurate and comfortable when I am clicking a lot of things quickly.

The vibrations seem kind of cute at first but you quickly get to like the feeling of your screen. I have come to depend of the tactile feel of my screen. I guess its almost subconcious.

....

I had a few problems with the Logitech installation sofwtare.
I was using an old serial port mouse to install the new USB mouse and ended up with no mouse for a while during the installation.

Rememebr the Ifeel model requires a free USB port and does not work with Windows 95.

3-0 out of 5 stars Neat concept, good for lite gaming--but FPS fans beware
This little optical wonder works great in games specifically designed to take advantage of its force technology. For example, in the god game Black & White the mouse will thump faster and faster as your worshipers send you spiritual power. The game uses the iFeel tech to provide the user with useful information, in much the same way the rumble pack provides tactile clues in the Nintendo 64 game Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

But the iFeel tech falls flat when it tries to simulate in-game events such as gunshots in iFeel-enabled first person shooter games. You just can't win: the force feedback is too weak to really feel like a gun's recoil, but the designers can't make it any stronger because then the rumble would actually move the mouse and thus mess with the player's aim.

Even worse, the optical sensor doesn't seem as accurate as a mouse ball. Sure, the optical mouse will never "stick" like a mouse ball can, but fast movement of the mouse (such as quickly turning around in a FPS) will produce strange results: either moving much too far or hardly at all. This is not an action gamer's mouse.

Non-game performance is take-it-or-leave-it. Sure, it's kind of neat to feel something when you click on a button or slide a scrollbar, but it certainly isn't necesary. Maybe graphic artists would get better mileage--I think tactile output from a paint program would be pretty cool.

If you're a general user who only uses a computer for work & Internet access or a casual gamer looking for an optical mouse, I'd recommend this one. The iFeel tech can be fun, and the optical performance is much better than a mouseball. If you dislike the iFeel options, you can simply disable them and use the mouse as a simple optical mouse.

But if you are a hardcore action gamer, I recommend you either wait for a next-generation iFeel mouse made specifically for gamers, or skip this mouse and instead go with a high-performance ball or optical mouse that will better serve your needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Mouse, I've had it for more than 3 years now
This is an awesome mouse, I've been using it for almost 3 years and now and I can't see myself using anything else. I wish Logitech would incorporate the iFeel technology in some of their newer mice as well. This isn't something you really need in a mouse, but it makes it seem as if you're interacting with the web page or your computer, you can "feel" the links or icons. At first it does feel kind of weird, but once you get used to it, you can't go back to a regular mouse.

4-0 out of 5 stars A cool answer to a question no one asked
Picked up an iFeel mouse off e-bay out of curiousity. You can find them well priced on there.

This is my first optical mouse, and seems to be a decent one at that. The "iFeel" part is actually pretty cool, although I really do not see a reason for it. I can't think of any pro's or con's for having it. It works with a couple games (Black and White is neat with it) and it does let me be a little more accurate with clicking. Possibly a good tool for those with less than perfect sight?

It took some time to get it to work. Make sure you have the newest software if installing with XP.

Overall, if you need a new mouse, you can't beat this price for a great optical mouse. The motion part is just an added bonus--and it freaks people out who don't know what it is. A friend of mine searched the desk for 10 minutes seeking out the "roughness" under the mouse. Needless to say, the desk was clean ;-). Mouse was just set on "squeaky clean".

Pretty cool. Find one used or on e-bay. Try not to buy retail.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Solution in Search of a Problem
An eager early-adopter, I searched high & low for this mouse after it was announced. I was in need of a new mouse anyway, so why not experience the thrills & chills of tactile feedback? One pre-release review I had read claimed that after a short while, you wouldn't believe you were ever happy with a mouse that didn't click, buzz, vibrate, and bump.

That was not my experience. Admittedly, I was amused by iFeel feedback at first. Logitech includes a modestly-amusing little puzzle game and demo app that showcase the variety of effects the mouse can create. There is a staggering array of options available to you if you choose to customize the feedback schemes, ranging from barely-perceptible buzzing to almost finger-numbing impacts. I had grown rather fond of the sandpaper-like feel that one scheme bestowed upon all default buttons, in fact.

But after a couple weeks of use, I still wasn't sure that there was any real advantage in using this hyperactive input device. I probably would've stuck with it longer if it weren't for the fact that the iTouch Desktop software (which enables & manages the feedback) seemed to interact badly with my usual applications, such as Netscape. It got so that I would disable the feedback features before opening my browser (running on W98) to avoid a crash. After a week or so of that routine, I realized that it was foolish to pay a premium for a feature that, while cool in theory, was frustrating in reality. ... Read more
