Other than those two problems, the fightstick itself is fine. It is small and portable and it feels nice using it. The layout of the buttons is great and the spacing between the stick and buttons is great too. The fightstick is also very easy to mod so you can easily swap out the stick, buttons or the artwork without any problem.
My recommendation is if you have the money for the TE fightstick, then go for it. If not, then this is a decent alternative with a few problems.
I got the SF4 stick and immediately fell in love with the case - the pictures online don't do it justice. Maybe it's because I was playing with the FS3 for so long and its sticker was starting to bubble and it is lightweight and thin, but the SF4 stick has good weight to it and the art, aside from looking good, really feels like it's protected well from oil and grime from your hands. However, even though I only just ordered it last week, THE WASHER PROBLEM DOES STILL EXIST. While MadCatz may have fixed the problem in sticks just produced, there's no guarantee that your fight stick won't be one that was on the shelf for months with a faulty washer.
Luckily it's a great stick for modding. I just completed my first ever mod tonight using a Sanwa JLF and OBSN-30 buttons. Unlike the FS3, which has a huge PCB with the buttons directly soldered to it, the buttons in the SF4 stick have quick disconnects and are easily accessed as soon as you open the stick. It's a quick change for the buttons and if you use the proper JLF stick, even quicker there.Read more ›
This is my first stick, so I'm no expert on them, and as such I think this is a great stick. Buttons are sensitive, the stick works well (once you get used to the square gate), and it's a nice weight so that I can set it on a chair or on my lap unsecured and it won't move too much, or at all.
After a month of use I'm beginning to suspect that some of the buttons will begin sticking, but I was aware this might happen as they're not Sanwa parts. If it becomes big enough of a problem I'll order replacement parts and swap buttons, which seems easy enough to do. After I do that I don't think I'll have any further reasons to complain.
All in all, this is a bit more expensive than I would expect for an arcade stick (by $15-$20) that doesn't have premium arcade parts and seems designed as a starting point for modification. All indications point to a product out-of-the-box that has a limited life before it starts having issues (though online discussion is going to be biased towards those who have problems). With that being said, I'm not unhappy with my purchase at all, and neither are the dopamine receptors in my brain every time I get my hands on this thing. (Now if only I could find some opponents online with whom I match up well...)
