nothing but a oversized paper weight

Summary: you can't find the replacement batteries where I live, heck I don't think they even make them any more, reason why I say all of this is because when I opened the battery packs guess what I find, time's up, every single battery inside was corroded, so unless you want an oversized paper weight don't...
Summary: Saitek made an interesting battery operated wireless game pad. I like how one charges while the other one is being used so that you always have power. The problem is that the batteries can get loose inside the battery holder or that they have a problem with being overcharged.
Summary: In the box this thing comes with your standard paperwork, a CD with the drivers, the usb "docking station" that charges the batteries and receives the rf signal, the controller and two rechargeable batteries. Out of the box one of these batteries didn't work at all.
Summary: I got two of these as a gift and right out of the box I had problems with them. I've owned 2 P880's (the corded versions of this controller) for over 2 years now and they are great, the included software for Saitek controllers is brilliant as well.
Summary: I don't know if this problem is with the product or my computer, but the analog sticks stick from time to time. For no reason at all the left stick will make my character move in one direction or the right stick will cause the camera to spin in circles.
Summary: The gamepad itself is a well engineered product. It fits the hand well, has many buttons and the joysticks are also a nice touch. My problem as with other reviews I have read is the battery packs. One of the two refuses to take a charge. Who knows how long the second one will last.
Summary: First let me say the controller is pretty good.The controller handles great and its very light but a bit slippery The install is a bit troublesome but great support will get you up and running.The only cons i believe is you must have the docking station in view or in a least a couple feet The...
Summary: As all of the other posters state this controller has a serious issue with its batteries. I, too, contacted the company and without any question they sent two replacement... no qualms with that kind of service, but the new batteries died just as quickly.
Summary: The only major problem is the battery. It "dies" after a while. Actually, it doesnt die, it's just loose inside the casing and eventaully pops out of its socket. To fix it, slide a screw driver into it to break the glue. Put the two batteries back in place, and slide the top back on. It works now!
