Summary: for the price its a great joystick, for both beginner and the advanced flight gamer. Plug n play install with no problems was ready to use within 2 minutes of opening the box!
Pros: Fully Adjustable, Great feel in hand and a awesome look. This joystick meets all the needs of current flight games. Perfect fast responses
Cons: light base, so if u don't have a light hand u might need to hold the base with your other hand. Not a problem imo just a warning. made for right handed person, but still fully functional for a left handed gamer with no problems
Summary: I would not recommend this joystick to anyone.
Pros: Looks and feels great highly adjustable for comfort
Cons: I am returning this joystick the same day I received it in the mail. This joystick has a huge dead zone that makes aiming and anything outside of basic flight very difficult. I could not get it to work on Windows 7 and had to contact technical support to walk me through some strange device manage...
Summary: I didn't find it's movement too tight, however I am still fairly new too flight simulators, so I can't comment with certainty regarding other games. But for H.A.W.X. this was a perfect flight stick and I plan to buy the wireless version soon.
Pros: Very good design: Placement of buttons was good, Throttle wasn't too close to stick when base was extended, base expands to be more stable, I dont have to touch the keyboard at all thanks to the programming software, Smooth movement, more options and style than expected for less than $50, quality...
Cons: The base extends to three legs, which is fine. However the lack of a support to the front was a con, diving quickly can lift the back of the base. This is very minor however and I didn't have trouble with it but thought it should be mentioned. The only other con is that it doesnt respond to telep...
Summary: I like this joystick. I looks good, and feels good in hand. You can download software from saitek's site to personalize profiles, this is separate from the drivers. I have windows 7 64 bit, and I just dl'd the drivers directly from saitek's site. I didn't even mess w/ the disk. No issues there.
Pros: Looks good, has 2 blue led lights on top of the stick. Trigger feels great, sesnative - very responsive. I like the 4 buttons right at the thumb, they come in handy and are in a convenient location. The base spreads out into a tri-pod like position for a more sturdy base. Stick just overall feels...
Cons: The base is a little lighter than I was expecting. If your movements are hard and jerky, you can tip the joystick. The base spread out helps a little with this. The stick is movement is really tight, which causes a problem for pin point accuracy for me. I have the dead zone set to 0, and it's sti...
