The black QanBa Q4RAF 3 in 1 is a quality arcade fight stick that uses top of the range Sanwa parts and is compatible out of the box with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 & PC. The QanBa Q4RAF is also very easy to mod, should you wish to change the joystick/buttons, add a GT-Y octagonal gate or add your own custom artwork with addition of the clear plexi* (Sold separately).
The QanBa Q4RAF has been designed with easy modding in mind, so that you can fit either the Seimitsu LS-32 or LS-32-01 joystick if you prefer. Also featured on the QanBa Q4RAF is a neat carrying handle and a built in 3.5mm headset jack, ideal for Xbox Live.
For added comfort, the bottom of this stick has a felt cloth and rubber feet. Each joystick comes beautifully packaged and also includes a cleaning cloth, headset & 2 x QanBa 30mm button blanks (Ideal for blanking the last 2 buttons to give a 6 button layout).
We can now pre-install a Sanwa GT-Y octagonal gate on your QanBa Fightstick prior to dispatch. This can be selected from the drop down box at the time of order.

I upgraded from a pretty generic $30 fight stick to the Q4 RAF, and while I don't regret the purchase, there are a few things I noticed that might be big issues for some people. So we'll lead with the bad, then get to the good. Again this is from my perspective of using a cheap stick, so this criticism may apply to all high-end sticks, I can't say for certain. Also, these issues may lessen with more use, breaking the parts in and such. Anyway, here goes:
The buttons are insanely sensitive if you're not used to them. The stick feels like it rebounds a bit too hard, and sometimes an enthusiastic QCB turns into QCB-F. The door for the cable compartment feels very flimsy. The felt bottom probably won't last all that long and is liable to leave a sticky residue. This more an assumption than an observation based on how it's glued to the base. The buttons and stick are also a little too close together for my liking, but that's preference. Some people may find the positioning of the Start button annoying. I honestly haven't had a problem with it, but I tend to play with the left 6 buttons, ignoring the right 2.
As for the good side, the buttons and stick feel great to use. They're very responsive, and the optional GT-Y gate was a great choice over the default square gate. I tend to try a variety of characters, so I can appreciate the precision of having defined corners, while still being more rounded than a square for 360 motions. It's a bit on the heavy side, which I view as a plus, because it makes the stick feel really robust, and keeps it firmly on your lap while you're being over-enthusiastically hype. Also if you get an optional octagonal gate but end up hating it, the awesome people at ArcadeWorldUK include the original square gate, and it's easy to swap one for the other.
All in all, it's a great stick, and I don't regret the purchase in the slightest. There's a slight learning curve from the stick I had before, but the more I use it, the better it feels. Now I just need to get some custom art printed to pop under the clear plexi cover I got with it!
