I'm still using Logitech \ Saitak, but I believe this might be my third set now (in about 14 years). They're ok, of course, but nothing stellar in either feel, realism, or robustness. But, as you indicate, they are cheap and do the job, so when they go I just replace them. In a few years I'm hoping to switch to a heli setup with proper heli controls, but until then the current pedals will remain. I guess it depends how much you use the sim (not a whole lot for me these days), what aircraft types you fly (and hence actual usage of the pedals) and how realistic you want the feel to be. There are several more expensive options out there, but I think not much at the cheaper end. Good luck in your search.
