Ouch, just noticed they've increased the shipping cost to Australia by over $24 compared to the drop last month :(
I have one of these, and it's really good, plus it's compatible with Sanwa parts so you could always swap in the future.
I had one of these. Purchased thinking I was finally going to get into fighting games. Turns out I can't put enough time into them to enjoy them. The stick did help me out though. I was able to perform combos and CA in SFV much easier than with a pad. I did change out the buttons for Sanwa buttons, which imo were a noticeable upgrade.

O Duh.... I guess my reading skills have become shit haha. I read your comment as "I was able to perform combos (in) CA (and) SFV" and was thinking that CA was a fighting game that I haven't heard of.
My bad haha.

I think I should have added a few commas there so no worries lol. Probably wouldn't be nearly as confusing.
I own this stick and recommend it. As other have commented, I would replace out the buttons to Sanwa. I also swapped out the lever to a JLF Korean-style lever. Works well and swap was easy. As others have said, stick is mostly easy to work with but there is one caveat. On the right side of the stick is a control panel that has your PS3, L3, R3, etc buttons. This is connected to another PCB and might make modding out the main PCB be a bit more difficult. Also, the cable housing clips have been known to break and that can be very annoying to some people.
For Xbox owners this is hardly a deal considering the stick is +$15 making it $145. You can grab it right now for $150 on Amazon with Prime. https://www.amazon.com/HORI-Arcade-Pro-V-Fighting-Stick-Windows/dp/B0136JP894/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522776614&sr=8-3&keywords=hori+arcade+stick
I think someone got a little lazy with the copy paste of the specs for the Pro V Kai.

Hori Real Arcade Pro Kai should be changed to Hori Real Arcade Pro. 4 Kai.
I actually own this arcade stick, for those who will purchase it, the RAP 4 got very bad buttons compare to the RAP 5, so please do me a favor and change them. However the Hayabusa stick is kinda special but i really like it. He is also compatible with PC. Indeed you can't go wrong with this stick, this is the best stick you can get for your money, just change the buttons will add like $15 ; Have fun guys :3

You just need a screwdriver and remove 5 screws that's all ( + the buttons ofc) but changing opening the stick will remove the warranty.
Most premium tier fightsticks like these Horis are easy to service, especially swapping levers and buttons. Just make sure you get buttons that are the same size (30mm or 24mm) and mounting type (these are 'snap in' style, not 'screw in'). Re-wiring the new buttons should be painless since they use "QD" (Quick Disconnect) terminators that just pull off and slide on, no soldering required. Plenty of videos on youtube if you need help. Parts are available at sites like ParadiseArcadeShop, ArcadeShock, FocusAttack and possibly local stores that specialize in retro gaming, in all sorts of fashion colors and materials and feel.
Personally, I wouldn't say Kuro buttons are terrible at all. While Hori does make different buttons from bad to excellent depending on the price bracket of the stick, the Kuros are only a bit less sensitive than the newer Hayabusa ones (while arcade standard Sanwa buttons are in the middle), they are way better than sloppy buttons from budget tier sticks. If you've only had experience with buttons from American arcade machines in the past, any of these modern Japanese style buttons are going to seem ultra responsive in comparison.
If you plan on getting one, verify the specs on Hori's site. Massdrop's descriptions are full of errors and exaggerations.
Whats the best version for PC only use

You can chose anyone since most game recognize it, i personnaly have a RAP 4 and it's perfect (change the buttons plz though)

In general, both will work. Windows the operating system will detect Xbox controllers as an Xinput device, and Playstation controllers as a DirectInput device. However, some lazy programs/games/apps may only recognize one or the other. You can bridge the gap with utilities that serve as an emulation layer between them. Steam's controller API supports both by now.
For PC only, I'd recommend the Xbox stick, also because in-game prompts and rebind menus will most likely reference Xbox button labels ("X, Y, A, B" instead of PS style "square, triangle, X, O")
