    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Easy to use and connect, no manual needed. Works well with electronic projects using dev boards such as the Arduino UNO. The pins are named on the board, so wiring it up is real simple. Seems durable. Cons:None found so far. I've used it to make a remote contr... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Neat solution on a board that easily can be bolted to a panel or similar. Smooth operation and quite ergonomic knob as well. Soldering seems to be solid. These are simple to use and shouldn't take more than a few seconds even for newbies to set up, just shove... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Small form factor, price, stable middle positions, push-button. Cons:Build quality - not sure how many cycles can last mechanical build - plastic lever sliding against metal. Also one axle is made from brass or copper - same doubts. There is also pads for SMD re... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Quite sturdy, working well. Cons:None really, if this is what you need. OtherThoughts:The X and Y outputs a voltage between about GND and Vcc. The voltage is not linear to the movement. There is a flat area just around the center of the stick. If you turn the...

The connections are very well done. The PINS was very well explained. Vcc, GND, X-axis, Y-axis ant the switch Cons:The unique con is that you need a resistance between... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Very useful and easy as could be to wire up and get hooked up to the arduino UNO. Would be excellent to control remote devices - via bluetooth or to control a wheel chair for example. Although there were no datasheet provided it took me a few minutes and I found tons of u...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Very good quality exactly like the real thing (from the game controller that I do not want to name...). Ridiculously easy to interface with a microcontroller and mount (it has four nice mounting holes on the PCB). Cons:I can't come up with something... I guess... Read more
