2 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: A lot of programmable switches and buttons to accommodate most flight sims out there.

Cons: Game configuration software appears to be half done and very faulty. I tried to use the software to configure it to the DCS Series (A-10C) and had unexplained anomalies. Aircraft suddenly rolling for no reason at all.

I use the configuration software within DCS and most problems went away, but NOW I have an issue with one of the throttle switches not reacting while doing throttle input. Apparently a hardware issue.

Other Thoughts: If had it to do all over again I would review this product a little more thoroughly and probably made the decision to go with Saitek again and gotten the X-65.

1 out of 5 eggsCan not believe that they are still trying to sell this thing

Pros: If it worked might be able to come up with one to justify 1 egg.

Cons: No fixes to the listed community problems. Read the logitech forums carefuly to see if problems with the system applies to your sims.

Other Thoughts: I read the reviews here and determined it was user error. The error is on my end. This thing is junk. 99% of sims out there do not recognize it and no one is willing to fix it, neither logitech (they gave up on this thing in 2010) nor game coders can seem to fix it either. I saw 1 post where a guy completely rewired and reboarded the thing to make it work. That is how extreme the issues are with this stick.

1 out of 5 eggsBought Experience

Pros: Read the other reviews....I have owned this junk for over a year...never could make it work properly and Logitech can't either. There is no fix.

Cons: Read Pros

Other Thoughts: I do not fault NewEgg....However? This product is misleading and defective manufactured. NewEgg should drop it from the line up.....

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: -Good for Microsoft Flight Sim X thats about it.
-Plenty of programmable buttons.

Cons: -The software from Logitech is terrible.
-The multi lighting on the throttle doesn't work for any of the games I've tried on it including FSX.
-Most games only recognize the HOTAS as one, making it hard to bind keys.
-The rudder peddals lose thier precision over time with use. Causes Sensitivity spikes no matter how many time you calibrate it.

Other Thoughts: Honestly I love Logitech Hardware. Though as far as software goes. They didn't put enough effort into this. Not only that they didn't think about compatability with the gaming industry. I give it one Egg because it just didn't perform to my expectations at all.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall needs work, I do not recommend.

Pros: Joystick is very accurate and very smooth (when not jittering), heavy throttle and joystick limit movement on my desk. Keep in mind I only use FSX.

Cons: Throttle - spiking problem is intolerable!! Your throttle will have this problem when shipped, or develop the problem over time. When you move the throttle, it causes the R1 and R2 sliders to spike or get stuck, Google "g940 r1+r2 spiking" you'll find 2-3 pages or complaints.

Joystick - jittering issues when centered. Although a very accurate stick, occasionally the joystick will jitter and cause erratic flight. E.g. while in level flight, auto pilot on, if you touch the stick, the jittering causes violent movements in the yoke that alter flight.

Other Thoughts: I am forced to return the system because of the problems listed above. When I spend $300 on a flight system I expect perfection, this come no where near.

3 out of 5 eggsWould buy again but..

Pros: Alot of buttons, options, and equipment comes with your purchase.
Price isn't too bad.

Cons: The joystick will start to make noise pretty quickly when moving it. Like a plastic being bent/forced sound.
Hard to setup with the game I was in. Joysticks would mimic other's settings.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Again, the stick and throttle have a nice feel to them and feel very solid. Lots of buttons and axis' and hats, oh my! If you can get the FFB set up the right way (takes some experimenting) it adds an incredible amount of realism to any flight sim.....

Cons: ...IF you can get the thing set up right. I have had some success in getting most of the buttons to work where I want them to, but still have issues with the various hat switches. I had to figure out how to edit the functions myself. Definitely not a plug and play device, at least with FSX. I have had a number of BSOD, GSOD and even a TSOD (tan) when using this device, plus it really seems to put a load on my machine. I have never ever had any kind of cooling issue with my Asus G73 until I started using the G940. No I get crashes and SOD's of various colors and the cooling fans are constantly on high.
And whose idea was it to put the trim adjustments on the base of the stick? If you look at any of the older planes that have wheels for trim adjustments, they are on the left side by the throttle hand, not on the stick, unless they are electricaly operated by a hat switch. That definitely should be changed. Are you listening Logitech???

Other Thoughts: There is so much potential for this to be THE flight sim controller to have, but I feel like Logitech has sort of left us hanging. They gave us a some new firmware a while back. Most people don't like it but now we're stuck with it with no way to go back to the old one. Everyone is asking for that but Logitech isn't listening. For the amount that we all paid for this system, I think Logitech should step up to the plate and give us alot better support (and a way to adjust the pedal width).

3 out of 5 eggsI think I'll love it eventually...

Pros: Good, solid feel to the hardware. Fairly comfortable to hold on to. Even with the issues I am having, it adds alot of realism to the sim experience. However....

Cons: Some of the buttons aren't the most ergonomic. I have large hands and still have to stretch to reach a couple of them.
The FFB is a bit qwirky to get right. Still working on that. hopefully the latest SW/FW will address that.
The biggest issue is compatibility. I've had the thing about a week and have yet to get it set up properly in FSX. I have tried it in a couple other sims on XP and Win 7 and was fairly successful getting the thing to do what I want it to do. But, FSX is my primary sim. The main axis' work for the most part. The buttons are the biggest headache. Some of them work and I can assign them where I want. But most of them show up as something other than a joystick or throttle button, i.e. if I try to assign a command to button 4 or 6 or many others, it comes up as a keyboard command S or L or /. Even some of the trim axis' show up as keyboard commands. Extremely frustrasting....

Other Thoughts: There are some definite compatibility issues with the G940 as FSX, and the profiler was very confusing to me at first. FSX is one of the most popular sims out there. You would think Logitech would make a bit more of an effort to get the thing working correctly in this sim.
The rudder pedals seem a bit narrow to me, but then I am a large person. I would have liked to see some sort of width adjustment.
These controls take up alot of room. I'm replacing my computer desk because of this.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter sim flying now

Pros: More possible function/button/hat/ministick assignments than I have been able to use so far. Forces are easily adjusted and can be very realistic depending on your preferences. I'm really enjoying differential braking now and the throttles have just the right amount of resistance.

Cons: I'm left handed and this is clearly built for righties. Still, every stick out there at this time seems to be for righties. The stick handle is a too long for my hand but a bit of dense foam above the rest resolved that. Pedals and throttles are connected to the stick instead of directly to the PC. If the stick has problems the whole HOTAS is out of action while you wait on repairs.

Other Thoughts: A left handed version would easily get a 5 egg rating. Competitive price compared to other HOTAS rigs and possibly cheaper than buying separate stick/pedal/throttle components. I would have bought this from Newegg but it was out of stock when my old stick died. I always try dealing first with Newegg and have never been let down by them.

1 out of 5 eggsadvise caution

Pros: Nice force feedback joystick with good selection of buttons and hat switch/mini controller, rudder pedals are ok and have a special carpet holder strip that can be used for carpeted floors, dual throttle quadrant that can be used as one or as two independent throttle controls. Throttle quad has a nice setup of buttons for programming functions and hat switch and rotaries as well.

Cons: There are unfortunately some hardware related issues pertaining to throttle ( spiking rotaries,R1,R2 wheels ). Turns out the wires are getting pinched and wear causing this and Logitech will not address it. They were good to work with and sent me two replacements both of which developed the same problems,the last one after developing this againwas outside the 1 year warranty, only thing logitech would do is sell me a complete new one at half price ( $150 ).Unit cost $275 so total investment for this would have been $425 --- no way !! I ended up taking this completely apart and rewiring the throttle quad, the way it should have been,took a while but it can be done .

Other Thoughts: This is a lot of money to invest in a product that has some pretty serious design flaws. If you are handy and enjoy challenges, this may not be too bad of an investment,if you want something that you can plug in the usb port and not worry about, I recommend looking at other products.
