Saitek Cyborg 3d Usb
20 July 2014
Summary: For a gaming novice like myself, I feel pretty lucky to have gotten an easy-to-use product right out of the gate. My roommate tried a couple of joysticks before being convinced the Cyborg 3D USB was a pretty good buy. Get the USB version instead of the digital stick. Even though the digital offers the Gaming Extensions program, reviews I've read from other users makes me think there are driver compatability issues.
Pros: Numerous buttons on head. Adjustable hand rest. Stick not overly-sensitive. Comfortable feel.
Cons: Breakable plastic trigger. Gaming Extensions program doesn't work well with USB stick.
Summary: I initially wrote a negative review but I've gotten it to work like it should. Basically, the only reason to get this stick is for rumble. For some reason, modern flight sticks do not seem to have rumble. This was the most recent stick I could find which had rumble. And of course force feedback sticks don't work anymore. But to get rumble to work you have to hack the registry. here are the steps I found that worked.
Summary: This is a great stick. I used it for DC final and now use it for BF2. I have friends that have all kinds of problems with there sticks but not a issue here. I'm shooting all kinds of people out of the air with the joy stick. The only thing that doesn't work is the blue light. I'm using XP as my OS.
Summary: Get the latest drivers from Saitek, then install the drivers before you plug in the stick. I thought that was common sense... I've used this joystick on Aerial Strike. It preforms well, but does not use the rumble effects. Price verses what you get is great.
Summary: This Joystick sucks hard. We bought it and it doesn't even work with windows xp aight. This thing constantly isn't working, so it basically just collects dust. It is like super light weight and just feels weird when your movin it around. I am super bored and am writing reviews for the first thing i look at in this room. Trust me though, don't buy this joystick!
Summary: It's a good 3 axis joystick with lots of buttons. Nice for flying games if you don't have rudder pedals. The feel is not perfect and it doesn't work with Windows 2000/XP very well, and they no longer support it.
Excerpt: This was the first joystick I got after getting into flight simulation. It was a present from an aunt and think it costed around £30. Being built by Saitek, the build quality is excellent. It came with a CD to install drivers, but as it is only a basic joystick, you can simply plug it into the USB port on a PC running WIndows XP, Vista or 7 and it will work immediately.
Excerpt: Hello everyone and welcome to this review. Now... being a student Pilot I needed something to help me with my training. Out I went and bought Microsoft Flight Simulator Butt! I needed something to fly the planes with.... and that is this beauty! I bought this off Amazon about two years ago, I paid £29.99 Brand new in the box. An okay price I suppose but it seemed to be the best for quality and features in that price range.
Excerpt: The box details this product as the perfect interface between man and machine, and while this may not be exactly true for all cases (text entry?!), I have yet to find a more comprehensive joystick. This digital USB joystick is highly customizeable, allowing near any user to find a comfortable setting for their hands.
Pros: Very customizeable, Very comfortable, Fast response, Overkill?
Excerpt: This is one joystick that knows what it is meant to do. However, it can sometimes throw the odd tantrum and need the odd tickle in order to get it doing what you would like it to do. In my opinion, Saitek have designed an outstanding joystick here, with a total of 11 different functioning operators (a hatch hey, throttle, trigger and 8 normal buttons).
