Being an ancient fogey, a random nostalgia moment had me wanting to play all those old flight sim games I had only demoed in the 90s (Wing Commander, X-Wing, Red Baron, etc.). Unfortunately, my ancient Logitech Wingman Extreme was no longer a compatible peripheral. After wasting a few hours looking for an adapter and realizing that a new joystick would probably be much cheaper, I started Google-fu-ing reviews, and the overall consensus appeared to be that the Logitech 3D Extreme Pro was the best value for money out there for those who weren't looking to really go gung-ho on modern flight sim equipment.
Since getting it, I've had no problems with the joystick itself, though I've struggled with trying to get old games to properly accept the joystick button mapping and the throttle control. I can't really blame the joystick for that, though -- and I suspect that if I was playing something a little more modern, there'd be no real issue because the mapping interface is very intuitive (read: old-fart friendly). The joystick itself is quite sensitive, responding very well to any type of action you give it, including banking and jinking.
Overall, it definitely meets my personal needs and, for the price tag, I am definitely very satisfied with the purchase.
