I had the Saitek for years until I got my hands on a FF2. The difference was night and day.

Also no problems with Windows 7 here. I've heard of a few cases with people who had stutter problems with the MSFFB2 in combination with Win7 and TrackiR, but it doesn't seem to be common….
As for the green light, it flashes when the power is not plugged in and should burn solidly when both the power and the USB are connected.
The Force Feedback should be turned off until you grip the stick (cover at least 1 of the two sensors at the back of the stick) and then you should feel it. So you can use that knowledge also to test it.

Is the best choice for Rise of Flight, or better…FF2 is THE Rise of flight joy. Be sure to buy a new one, not damaged.
For me with W7 64bit not problems at all.

Look for wear marks on handle and buttons, though these JS are made to last. By far the gold standard, and still working with Win7 64 bit.

I wouldn't think twice about getting one for 100 bucks even if I do already own 5 of them.

Remember that RoF often disables FF when it updates. You forget, jump in game, take off and have a floppy stick in your hand….
I have covered over the little sensor at the base with tape. I found that if I held the stick lightly I didnt cover it and the force turned. The disadvantage is that the stick may thrash madly if not held and poke you in the eye as you reach across the desk… yep, have done that!
If the power transformer fails it can be replaced with a commercial 24v power pack for laptops, the higher wattage the better. Its relatively easy if you have rudimentary DIY skills. I did this with one of my two sticks and its has a bit more oomph and still hasn't burned out after 5 years!
