I tell you guys it's Revolution! This thing combine all advantages of mice and joysticks. It's precise and fast like a hell, no one joystick can compete with it. It even more precise than my monstrous Razer Naga with a resolution of 5600dpi at 1000Hz of the polling rate.
Furthermore, in 'Hybrid' mode, which is an ideal for Mech piloting, Hydra can act as a mouse around the center - which is giving you incredible precision, and as a joystick at the edges of sensitivity zone - so, apart from mouse, you can not worry about the mouse-pad' end and don't need to constantly relocate controller back to the center of its sensitive zone or center of the pad.
And finally - this is INCREDIBLE FEELING when your(no, i really mean YOUR) hand tracking the enemy and ***BANG*** you send AC/20 round right to the bandit' cockpit. Even a joystick couldn't give me such a feeling that hand of my Mech is just an extension of my own hand, if not to say again that joystick just can't give such a fast and precise aim.
If PGI still have a plans to collaborate with some of manufacturers to release MWO-licensed controller - it should be only Razer Hydra, because they are created for each other. Period.

P.S. The only disadvantage it has - don't play with it if you have a tremor in your hands, which i have today - after the all-night-long party.
