DO NOT GAMBLE

Jason D., Newegg
16 March 2016
  • Summary: Please, DO NOT GAMBLE. The quality assurance on these products is nothing short of horrible. I chose to ignore all the other reviews blasting MadCatz for their terrible QA since acquiring Saitek. Save yourself some time and a little aggravation and do not gamble on this HOTAS.
  • Pros: Looks and feels the part, a good middle range HOTAS
  • Cons: First set received, the LEDs on the flight stick stopped functioning approximately 1 week into ownership. Living on the East Coast, and New Egg having their RMA processing facilities in CA meant a nice long cross country trip via UPS ground, but if that means a fully functioning product, then oka...

No go on the drivers, locked up the system/PC.

Timothy S., Newegg
13 March 2016
  • Summary: Two hours spent trying to get the drivers to install resulted in a wasted afternoon, and a locked up PC. There's little else to say but thank you to newegg for their excellent return policy. ;)
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Doesn't work. At. All.

Garbage drivers for and otherwise solid piece of equipment

  • Summary: Garbage drivers for and otherwise solid piece of equipment. This thing felt great, but I could never get it working. Literally the moment I plugged it into my computer, all hell broke loose.

Blue lights blinking fixed

James C., Newegg
27 February 2016
  • Summary: The people who praise the operation of the X52 because they haven't had any problems yet are correct. The people who are unhappy with it because they have had problems are also correct. It IS cheaply constructed, so it's luck of the draw if you get one that lasts, or even works.
  • Pros: Works great while it works, until it dies. This is the second one I've had, for more than a year now, and it's still working fine. But....
  • Cons: The first one lasted about 2 years, then started with the blinking blue lights, and not working. I read all the forums, did all the uninstall/reinstall drivers, alternate drivers, registry hacks, plugging in and unplugging in this order and that. Nothing had the slightest effect. Then I took it a...

Doesn't work!

george m., Newegg
15 December 2015
  • Summary: disappointed and frustrated. nothing makes me madder than a bogus product and a complete lack of support..
  • Pros: Looks cool
  • Cons: Cannot even get past driver install. Terrible product! Shame on you Saitek/Madcatz. Want to call customer support? Guess what- BOTH PHONE NUMBERS printed inside the packaged literature are NOT IN SERVICE. A quick google search will reveal that a TON of people are having similar issues. Driver ins...

Device will not work with windows 10

Steven H., Newegg
16 August 2015
  • Summary: Useless hunks of plastic that don't work at all due to a company that just doesn't care.
  • Pros: Looks are great but that's all I can review for pros as the device is not able to work on Windows 10 without a driver update which isn't availible
  • Cons: Well It doesn't work at all. I have windows 10 and there are no drivers available for windows 10. The company is non responsive when questioned when if ever a driver will be made available. Despite having more than a year of development access Saitek aka Madkats has decided that the customer does...
