Logitech manages to pack in quite a few features for the price. Usually you can expect to pay $60 or more for a stick that gives you as many buttons and a twist handle. It's impressive that Logitech can offer this much in a joystick for less than the price you'd pay for some games ($40).

Is she a looker?
Overall, the ED3D is an attractive looking device, one that you wouldn't mind leaving on your desktop. The base feels pretty solid, molded from high impact gray plastic. There seems to be some kind of metal inside however, because it's got a much heavier feel to it than pure plastic would indicate. You can find more metal at the part where the stick meets the base, giving the joystick a more rugged look and feel. Soft black rubber hides the actual connection of the stick to the bottom, while the stick itself is made from a more lightweight plastic than the heavier base. To make things a little jazzier, Logitech made the 5 buttons on the top a silvery color, and included translucent blue plastic to accentuate the hat switch and the Logitech logo on the base. Put it all together and the ED3D's got a subdued, high tech look that avoids being too flashy or loud.
