Summary: I bought FSX so that I could utilize the Captain Sim 707 add-on as I plan to spend time in a B707 full-motion simulator. I found FSX to be an excellent training program with accurate flight profiles of the Cessna 172 and Piper Archer, both of which I have logged considerable time in actual aircraft as pilot-in-command. Especially when coupled with the Captain Sim add-on programs, I found this simulation to be very helpful in procedures and aircraft-specific operations.
This program works well, delivered on time. Yeeeehhhhaaaaawwwww.

Summary: Well MSFS has been a great tool and lots of fun for years and years. One complaint is the realism with certain aircraft. The R22 helicopter simply does not autorotate which is crap! And the bell jet ranger does autorotate but you lose all rotor rpm and thus stall the rotor blades when you slow down to low airspeed which is so far from the truth it hurts. The powered hang glider trike overstresses in flight very easily.
Summary: My old copy got scratched and needed replacements so off I went seeking a deal on ebay. As a real world pilot, I like to use MFS as a trainer, specially for IFR procedures. As any other MFS user I also enjoy the wide variety of aircraft available for download, and even the ones included. I fly recreationally, so the chances of me landing a B747-400 in the real world are slim, but in MFS I can take a dream vacation from Miami to St.
Summary: I have been playing Flight Simulator since the days that DOS was the only operating system (pre Windoze), that version was FS v6.0 - then I next went up to FS95 and so forth. Latest version I had, before I bought FSX, was FS2002. FSX KICKS BUTT over 2002! Far superior to any previous versions before it!! I am NOT a fan of Microsoft - as far as I am concerned, Windows is just bloatware, but they have done a really good job with this!
Summary: I purchased this simulator in the hope that it would be better than FS2oo2. I was disapointed, the graphics are not as good as the old one. Although the moving vechicles are neat. Maybe I need more time with the new one. To fully appreciate it. But still I would not recommend purchasing it. Better off sticking with the old one.
