Reviews around hand (5.00 of 5)

  • The right hand unit began to get very loose and then one of it's controls began to stick when used
  • Set it up and the right hand unit was loose and sloppy as if worn but was new
  • Third, the joystick doesn't have an adjustable hand rest like the X52 Pro does.

Reviews around product (5.00 of 5)

  • On another note, if logitech had simply taken the joystick from this x56 (which works really well) and the throttle from the x52 pro (which also works really well, even though it has some weird button placement, and a useless screen) They would have had a decent, reliable product
  • Great product
  • I really wanted this to be a great re-engineered product up to Logitech standards, but it is still a Saitek piece of garbage.

Reviews around light (5.00 of 5)

  • and I like the back lighting on the buttons
  • LED lights do not match the color you select on screen wondering if some of them might be faulty out of box

Reviews around power (5.00 of 5)

  • The only gripe I have about the Logitech X56 is that it will require a USB output that provides enough adequate power for it to function properly.
  • If the motherboard on your PC does not provide adequate power on its USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports, the X56 may not function properly unless you buy a powered USB hub, preferably a 3.0 one.

  • On another note, if logitech had simply taken the joystick from this x56 (which works really well) and the throttle from the x52 pro (which also works really well, even though it has some weird button placement, and a useless screen) They would have had a decent, reliable product
  • I played around for almost and hour within the software (which you will have to download) and found it complex, but anyone with experience with the programming software of the x52 pretty easy to get the hang of.

Reviews around work (5.00 of 5)

  • Throttle is smooth, buttons work, software integration is seamless
  • If the new unit is working great (which it probably should be), I'll update here

Reviews around stick (3.86 of 5)

  • Second stick has a functioning tension knob, in that it is both NOT broken, AND actually adjusts the tension.
  • My ONLY complaint, this stick is HIGH
  • Pros- Adjustable stick tension (via different tension springs)- Adjustable throttle tension (if you like it soft and smooth or a
  • Also on a positive note the stick itself comes with 3 other springs for those like me that like some

Reviews around quality (3.86 of 5)

  • Unfortunately, quality is terrible
  • It's seemingly pretty good build quality, the joystick moves smoothly and easily, and I like the understated glow from it
  • While the build quality is absolutely fine, clearly it's not as bulletproof as the much more expensive Thrustmaster Warthog, but then does it really need to be
  • I've always owned Logitech products like their gaming mice and keyboards and all have been really good quality that lasts forever.

Reviews around button (3.04 of 5)

  • But the X56 has more than enough buttons on the stick and throttle and two very needed joystick type sticks that really set this thing apart
  • hated the button placement on the thrustmaster, and the x52 pro, while it had great buttons, was a crap stick
  • On another note, if logitech had simply taken the joystick from this x56 (which works really well) and the throttle from the x52 pro (which also works really well, even though it has some weird button placement, and a useless screen) They would have had a decent, reliable product
  • I find that three of the buttons aren't working on the stick, the trigger which is a huge one the mouse pointer button and there also a button on the base of the stick, nothing at all
  • Throttle is smooth, buttons work, software integration is seamless
  • Read remaining 8 reviews for button

Reviews around hotas (2.94 of 5)

  • I didn't feel like shelling out $470 for the Thrustmaster Warthog but considering the extremely limited HOTAS systems with dual throttles out there, there's not many other options.
  • While this HOTAS has a troubled past I can attest to what I received as being awesome.
  • There are some ergonomic issues with the throttle (cramped switches) but overall while working its an excellent HOTAS.
  • As such it's a really solid HOTAS solution, currently for under 200 bucks on Amazon, and I couldn't be happier with how it works in operation
  • This is especially aggravating as there just is not a hotas setup worth buying it seems in the under 400$ range

Reviews around elite (1.00 of 5)

  • So I'll be flying along in Elite Dangerous, try to throttle up, and end up deploying my landing gear, turning on ships lights, sliding left, and opening my cargo hatch; all at the same time.
  • All that metal comes at a very big price premium and you simply don't think about that when using the X56, which actually has the advantage of a "mini" joystick on both throttle and stick, absolutely perfect for thruster control and camera manipulation in space sims like Elite Dangerous
  • will update review after it gets more use.**UPDATE**So i finally finished my work week, and sat down excited to try this setup out in elite dangerous
