Strengths: No cords.
Weakness: Plastic china crap.
Ever since I got the thing it has not worked 100%. The handle twist went bad after 90 days or so and its impossible to calibrate. I took mine apart the other day and it is made of very cheap material. The freedom is nice but not worth the cost.

More Trouble Than It's Worth
Strengths: It along with all it's sister sticks from Logitech are the most comfortable sticks I have used. That coupled with a lot of buttons, makes this a nice option.
Weakness: If you game a lot, you will be replacing batteries often. After a lot of use, the sensors start getting dead spots and seem to jump around. They are sealed pots, so they cannot be opened to clean.
I have had 2 Logitech Extreme 3D Pros, 1 Logitech Freedom 2.4 Wireless, and 1 Logitech Force 3D. All of them use the same sensors. All of them developed the same problem after about a year. One joystick broke the solder joints on the main board connection for the sensors due to a short harness. After constant calibrations and swaping sensors, along with soldering connections, I have finally had...

Strengths: Precise, No need for in-game control editing, comfortable, decent weight, rechargable batteries(special edition), lots of buttons, shift function, deadzone control, and ITS THE BEST!!!
Weakness: Reciever should go into sleep mode (keeps on blinking), Profiler program takes up a lot of memory while idle, and some games such as GTA screw things up...
I know it was only like 25$... but since you added some metal why cant u make all the grey plastic parts metal? haha... oh and some more eye candy is good... more buttons on the top part wont hurt either...

I purchased this joystick for...
Strengths: Good comfort. Twist handle rudder eliminates need for pedals or keyboard to control the rudder. Fast response time.
Weakness: Need to change batteries every once in awhile but not often. Buttons on the base are weirdly positioned.
I purchased this joystick for flying in Battlefield 1942 since my gamepad was not doing so well in that. I got this and was amazed. The twist handle rudder lets me line up my bomb drops with ease. The design looks very nice and is comfortable and is heavy enough not to go sliding around. My only gripe is changing batteries but it's wireless and I expect to change the batteries. Usually batteries...

I purchased this joystick for flying in Battlefield 1942 since my gamepad was not doing so well in that. I got this and was amazed. The twist handle rudder lets me line up my bomb drops with ease. The design looks very nice and is comfortable and is heavy enough not to go sliding around. My only gripe is changing batteries but it's wireless and I expect to change the batteries. Usually batteries come in packs of 2 or 4 but it takes 3 batteries so it makes it uneven so I just have 1 extra battery lieing around. It's not a big deal though.

Strengths: Very precise and abundant buttons make this a must have joystick
Weakness: Batteries! I wish it had a charging station with a built in nicad battery pack.
I have always been very demanding when it comes to joysticks. My absolute favorite is the wingman interceptor with the 3 hat switchs. But since Logitech refuses to continue support for it I was forced to continue my search. 6 months rolled by and I came upon the Cordless. Very nice feel but only one hat switch. It has 3 rubber covered legs that help prevent it from sliding around. The trigger is...

I have always been very demanding when it comes to joysticks. My absolute favorite is the wingman interceptor with the 3 hat switchs. But since Logitech refuses to continue support for it I was forced to continue my search. 6 months rolled by and I came upon the Cordless. Very nice feel but only one hat switch. It has 3 rubber covered legs that help prevent it from sliding around. The trigger is one of the toughest I have ever seen (I keep breaking the MS joystick triggers). Other than that it has been a faithful addition to my gaming arsenal (I have one at home and one at work). If it were not for the fact you need to replace the 3 AA batteries every 50 hours of use I would have given it a perfect score. As for the guy with the drift problems...What OS are you using??!! In win2k and XP there is no reason to need dead zone calibration. The stick does not use "pots" so it always centers up when you let go. This could be a problem if you are using a very old program or OS (I'm guessing here).
