Grab one if you can still find it!
This is a great 6 button stick in a very sturdy yet small profile case. The only gripe is the unorthodox button layout (basically the 4 face buttons are rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise). It's great for VF5, but annoying to remap every other fighting game. The buttons are wired in with quick disconnect terminals, so it was easy for me to simply re-wire the buttons from the inside to match all my other sticks (the labels on the case are wrong now, but I can remember where the buttons are).
Quality of parts is hardly a factor now as almost all sticks at this price come in all SANWA, or at the very least, with a JLF joystick. The main draw for me was the 6 button layout and small profile. It's one of my favorites for quick sessions which is saying a lot since my collection consists of the Mad Catz TE, HRAP3, V3, V3-SA, and VLX Premium.

BEST arcade stick
Out of the HRAP, and all other Hori sticks I own (which I own almost all of them), THIS has GOT to be the best stick I ever played on. It comes with ALL sanwa parts and the layout and material they use on the stick is EXACT to the material they use here in Japan game centers. I hope this helps.

Excellent Stick - Not exactly PC compatible
I got this today and am very happy with it. It is an excellent arcade stick and I agree with most of what everyone else has posted.

One thing that is not plain, however, is the PC compatibility issue. While this stick will work with Windows, there is a genuine issue wherein Windows \"sees\" the stick as something called a POV hat. Apparently a POV hat is a little button on the top of some flight stick type joysticks (had to look that up).

What does this mean? Well it means that you will need to download a program to remap the stick to keys on the keyboard in order to make it work with windows apps that do not recognize the stick. It works fine when this is done (and it is fairly easy to do), but it does not work flawlessly with a PC right out of the box as some seem to have implied.

Just figured I would save someone else a little frustration as this issue has come up in the past (I searched some other sites to figure it out myself), but it is not extensively documented as I assume most simply use the stick for the PS3 as it was, of course, intended.

Still an excellent product imo and PlayAsia shipped it quickly to me.

The Best Arcade Joystick for your lovely Playstation3
I bought this Sega Virtua Stick HG last week, and received it three days later via FedEx. The primary reason for buying this joystick was for the Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection Online that I purchased on Aug 1st. I was being beaten up pretty badly over the net due to the PS3\'s non-fighting-genre-dedicated six-axis controller. However, once I received the shipment, and got ready to give it test drive, I am very pleased with the result, it has greatly improved my online battle performance, and everything else just seems au naturelle as just playing it in arcade.

FYI, since it is a USB joystick, feel free to plug it in your PC and laptop, and it performs just like a charm with all your emulator games, such as KOF, Fatal Fury, Samurai Showdown and etcs, it beats all the PC controller and joystick you\'ve ever owned!

five star rating, no doubt, and it\'s made by SEGA!
