Summary: I really liked my old Sidewinder 3D Pro, but it's become a problem getting the new operating systems to recognize it on the still great but aging Creative Live Drive gameport. I've lusted for the Saiteks. So I got this wireless one to continue uncluttering my desk. I'm tall and have big hands, so I thought an adjustable one would be cool. Beefs: 1. It had a dead stick button out of the box.
Summary: It's possible that the problem was with this specific unit, but the joystick was subject to frequent disconnections apparently tied to RF interference. Despite changing the joystick's channels and using numerous alternate batteries, as well as removing most interfering devices away (really, only 3 nearby items transmitting on the 2.4 gHz range), the stick still proved to be too intermittent.
