Summary: Just got this to replace an older Ch that I picked up cheap to get everything up and going. WOW what a difference!!! I did what many feedbacks said and went straight to Saitek's downloads page and downloaded the latest and greatest drivers instead of installing the discs......
Summary: Worth the investment. I use it to brushen up before a flight or checkride. Helped me get back in the swing of things without having to dish out on plane rental. Flight instructors can tell when you practice!!!!
I've had the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke + Pedals and the CH Flight Sim Yoke + Pedals + Quadrant. This is what you need to know.

Summary: Alright people, listen up. This is the review you want. If you are like a normal person and can't afford the $600-$1000 yoke from PFC without getting divorced then you are undoubtedly comparing this yoke (or the CH Eclipse, same thing really) to the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke.
Summary: I have never flown with a yoke and rudder pedals. Ever since I got my first flight simulator, I've always used a Top Gun Afterburner joystick and throttle combo, with a rocker button for the rudder. So obviously, I'm new to the yoke.
Summary: I purchased the item in August 2013. The USB connection of the yoke would suddenly be disconnected, without any signs or warnings, 15-30 minutes into use in FSX. I suspected it was a computer and/or FSX issue, so I ignored the problem. The issue persisted for several months.
Summary: Very noisy inputs literally (about) 5 out of 6 times. Every 6th time (give or take) I plug it in, the inputs are perfectly silent. The play at the center of the joystick is too much. Rotation on any axis is not smooth unless in unusual positions.
Summary: It did not work would not calibrate I was very disappointed with this product. This is the second one I bought , I Bought one a few years ago and it work fine for awhile then it stopped working. The last one I bought did not work at all.....
Summary: This yoke does have some good features but also has issues as well. It is affordable and easy to set up. It does however have a problem with the pitch axis. It is sticky making precise movements difficult if not impossible. Roll axis also sticks when moving from center position.
