This review is from: Logitech 963290-0403 Extreme 3D Pro USB Joystick
Pros: A proper stick for proper stick-and-throttle games. Massive overkill for Lucasarts' X-wing games. Fast and annoying ships became very much easier to swat down over an Xbox gamepad.
Works out-of-the-box in Linux/DOSBox and Windows.
Cons: Stiffness not adjustable.
Other Thoughts: Right-handed.
Stiff. If you are a really skinny nerd and don't work out at all, this stick won't offer very good precision: the strength in your arm is a big part of how precisely you can fly and aim with this thing.
Pros: Pretty precise.
Works out of the box with Linux, too.
Wheel big enough to feel usable as a third button.
Cons: If you're left-handed, you're out of luck: this is a right-handed mouse.
Other Thoughts: Took a little while to get used to.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA CL-SM-001 Black 3.5mm Connector Microphone with Adjustable Rod
Pros: Pretty good microphone for voice chat in online gaming. People can hear me without issue.
Physical on/off switch in case you don't trust software with that detail.
Cons: It likes to pick up clicky sounds from my mechanical keyboard more than it likes to pick up my voice.
Other Thoughts: I use this with headphones, so I can't comment on the possibility of feedback or echo with a set of speakers. Some of the people I play with obviously are using desktop speakers, because I do hear echoes of what's going on and sounds from their end of the game.READ FULL REVIEW
