Pros programability and functionality
Cons longevity should be better
Summary Great joystick this, give good programability for use with almost any game.
Believe it or not I use this stick to play counter-strike source and its fragtastic.
Unfortunately they dont last long, I am just about to take my second one back as its calibration has gone awol. Epect a life of about 4 months, but hey its got a 12 month waranty so just take it back and get a replacement...again....and again.........and.
Pros Ergonomic, comfortable design; plenty of programmable buttons; easy to use software; accurate; wireless and lagless; satisfyling clicky feel of trigger
Cons very light, meaning that it will be pulled around; room for a few more buttons; throttle pretty unusable due to placing; some break or so I hear
Summary Make no mistake: the Freedom 2.4 Joystick is a very good joystick, however Logitech seems to have a recent trend for easily overcomable flaws.
The main flaw here is the terrible placing of the throttle; get a full flight control system if you want to do some serious flying. For FPS's though, this shouldn't make that much of a difference.
The Freedom 2.4 is very comfortable, and you will never feel discomfort or strain using it. Your hands will rarely slide from the position you want them in.
Even though this is a good joystick, do not get it. Get Logitech's newer Force 3D Pro, which is basically the same plus vibration and more buttons but sans the wireless-ness. And if you want to fly, go for a full flight control system like Saitek's X52.
Pros quick response configuirabla buttons sleek looking
Cons short auto turn off time uses three batteries more expensive than corded sticks
Pros Prefect ergonomic design. Plenty of buttons and well laid out.
Cons Only good for about 30 - 60 days before the twist axies fails to calibrate and becomes useless.

Pros Good layout. Smooth feel to the controls
Cons Refused to calibrate
Summary Could not make the unit work. Installed and reinstalled hardware and software. Changed batteries, switched USB ports. Downloaded latest drivers, DirectX and calibration reset utility, all to no avail. Controls drifted to far extremes and could not be neutralized. Tried to take off in Flight Sim 2004 and immediately flipped upside down and landed in the drink.
