I've been using this stick for a couple of days now and it's simply put amazing. The buttons as well as the joystick are all Sanwa-parts so you know they will last long while keeping their accuracy during the run. The stick feels very precise and nailing any sort of move is a breeze compared to that piece of junk Madcatz SE stick one of my friend has. It also feels durable and appear to be made of tough plastic. The weight of the stick is good but looking at it you'd think it's much heavier. The rubber stand are screwed in the chassis so they probably will never wear off the case. There is also a wire compartment in the back of the stick to make it easier to transport this big toy around. My only gripe at first was that the start button was too close from the others buttons but now that I feel less stressed executing my combos, I don't mash it by error anymore so it's all good. Overall I am incredibly surprised with this one as I expected something good but it turned out awesome. I can now execute commands I could only wish I did before.

I will probably order a Madcatz TE stick in order to compare them both and see how it goes.

UPDATE:
FEB 18 2011
Today the stick pretty much died.
It does light up when plugged in at times, but it won't work at all.
Stick and buttons all don't work.
Will be returning the stick on Tuesday after Family day (Monday)
Thankfully, Amazon has amazing return/exchange policies.

After playing it for about 10 hours on solely Marvel 3, it started having problems.
It wouldn't start up a couple of times, it would also freeze on inputs.
I might've gotten a lemon =\

I've owned 2 V3 SAs, the original and this re-release.
They're both identical and they're both well made.
I'm actually more fond of the HRAP model of premium arcade sticks (I've also owned an EX and VLX) compared to the Madcatz TE sticks (I've owned a couple of TE RD1s and I have a Chun-Li S stick)

All premium sticks HRAP, Madcatz, Qanba, etc. All have Sanwa parts, the same exact layout other then the start button placement.
They're all practically the same, 'cept for the shell of the stick and design. I prefer the newer HRAP sticks and I do like how light-weight the V3 is for it's model/case, but I do prefer the VLX if I had to choose from all the sticks that I've ever owned.

The only thing I wish the V3 SA had was a longer USB cord, it's a bit shorter compared to the Madcatz TE sticks.
Other then that, the V3's been good so far. Everything is working flawlessly out of the box, buttons are extremely responsive, JLF square-gate (4gate) is great. Very easy to transport if necessary. (Tournaments, casuals, etc)

I would recommend this arcade stick to everyone who's looking for an amazing, affordable, light-weight and fully-loaded arcade stick.

I own both this and the VX SA. While they have taken some getting used to, I can say without a doubt that this is the way fighting games are meant to be played. The stick and buttons are very responsive, and once you've settled on a grip and whether you will play either with the Japanese curved layout or the American style straight layout you're good to go. Just a warning for those who are accustomed to American style octagonal gates - this stick uses a square gate, which may make circular motions challenging for some. Fortunately if you so choose this can easily be changed, as can all the buttons and the balltop.

Beyond all this, owning a fight stick does not automatically make you good at fighting games. If you've never used one before you need a lot of practice. Stick with it and the results will be very rewarding.

This is my first purchase and my first arcade stick. Not necessarily the best idea, I know, but I only wanted to spend money for one arcade stick and make it a good one.

This is a really good stick, especially for its price. Other than the square gate (which will probably take a long time for me to get used to), everything else is in working order and lives up to its reputation. Buttons are responsive, turbo function is always nice, and cable is reasonably long (and just long enough for my room, actually). I plan to take the square gate out for an octagonal gate at some point, but I'll keep the sqaure gate around for a bit longer. It's only my first day!

Update Jan 25th 2012: My second week of owning the stick. I'm slowly getting used to the awkward square gate. After playigng around with my GCN Controllers and my Classic Controller Pro (both of which have an amazing feel, and restrict their sticks to 8 directions), I think I'll eventually replace the square gate with an octagonal one. It's still a really good stick, and I don't think it'll fall apart anytime soon.

I've been playing fighting games for many years but never once owned a fight stick. Then I decided to take the plunge and buy the Hori Real Arcade Pro V3 SA, and I don't regret it one bit. It feels sturdy, the buttons and stick are responsive, and overall it just feels like a great product. It has a good weight to it that makes it feel durable but also comfortable to use on the lap. It has a turbo function for every button and a handy cable compartment on the back. It also has little "wings" on the sides that let you pick it up and carry it easily. I don't have a lot of experience with other brands but I have tried a friend's Madcatz TE (which is well regarded) and I think the HRAP V3 SA performs comparably. As a first time fight stick owner, I think this product is well worth the price!
