2-0 out of 5 stars If it's not metal, it's garbage!
This product is a great starter HOTAS (Hands On Throttle And Stick). But it is a HORRIBLE finisher.

The buttons stick. A quick perusal of the usenet will show this to be the norm.

The stick has an annoying (and childish) cover over the missile button. This is stupid. The stick is WAY too big as well. I'm all over it trying to get to the different buttons. A REAL fighter joystick has all buttons VERY easy to reach. You can forget about quick response with this thing.

The stick's programmability leaves A LOT to be desired. There is no way to program a key to do different keystrokes on subsequent presses. For instance, button 8 could map to "g" to lower gear. And then, hitting button 8 again would map to "U" to cause gear to retract.

The stick's plastic resistance base at the end of the springs also doesn't move smoothly - it's jumpy.

My recommendation: Cougar HOTAS from ThrustMaster. I'm E-Bay'ing my Saitek.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value
I have had good luck with this throttle/stick combo. I am using it with Windows XP without any problems. Using the basic driver software provided by Saitek for XP, all buttons and axes are recognized and work properly. I can't get the advanced programing software from Saitek to load properly (allowing more specific button programing for use with older games and sims) but this may be due to a conflict with my sound card (SB Audigy), and it isn't necessary with newer sims, which allow you to fully configure the controller through the game program, anyway. I haven't had a problem with buttons sticking. I agree that the "Safe" cover over the "launch" button is a bit hokey, but it looks like it would be fairly easy to cut off if it really offended one. The throttle action is very smooth and both the throttle and the stick fit my hands comfortably. The stick has a rocker lever that substitutes for rudder pedals. This isn't quite as nice as a good set of rudder pedals, but I find it is good enough that I usually don't bother to hook up my CH pro pedals anymore. The spring at the base of the stick that centers it and provides resistance to its movement off- center makes the stick movement just a little "jerky" and provides a little bit too much self centering force for my taste, and this is not adjustable. That and the lack of Force-Feedback capability I would say are the only real drawbacks to this controller, but I would certainly buy this again and would recomend this device to anyone looking for a good (and economical) alternative to a non-Force-Feedback throttle, pedal and fighter-stick Hotas combo. By the way, I was amazed what a difference having a good throttle makes, especially in combat flight sims, compared to using the little throttle axis lever provided on most all-in-one sticks (such as the Microsoft Force Feedback controller).

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I had read good things about this stick and it looked like a great deal for a stick-throttle combo. I bought it online and was a little underwhelmed when it arrived, as my first impression was one of overall cheapness. Construction is primarily of what seems like pretty low-quality plastic with a cheap, creaky feel. I wrote it off to the low price and figured you get what you pay for and this was still the least expensive stick-throttle combo you can get. If it worked properly I would have accepted the cheap feel, but after a few weeks of use the low quality started to show. One of the two hat switches on the stick quit working entirely and the stick itself is starting to feel very sticky due to friction between the metal spring and the plastic components. There is a warranty and I could send the stick back to get the hat switch fixed but I just don't feel it's worth it. I have little confidence in the longevity of this stick. My advice would be to either save your money and buy a better stick or invest less money in something simpler.

4-0 out of 5 stars OK for combat flight sims, not for "regular" flight sims.
I am a licensed pilot and a hardcore user of FS2004. I bought this for the idea of a seperate throttle and all the programability promised by Saitek.

The joystick itself is good, good feel, movement,etc. Some of the cheesy plastic pieces could disappear and no one would miss them though, like the plastic "shield" over the fire button.

The throttle was nice too, but stiff. I guess if you kept using it, it would work itself in.

But I have always used a Microsoft Sidewinder joystick. I program the extra buttons on the base for functions like flaps, spoilers,landing gear,etc. There are no buttons like that on this stick. Maybe I am being nit-picky, but I just couldn't tailor this stick to be normal and not like a combat sim.

If you love combat sims, this is your stick/throttle setup. You can buy two at this price in case you are concerned with durability and still not approach the MSRP of the vaunted Thrustmaster Cougar.

But if you just like flight sims and point to point flying, acrobatics or whatever, this is not your stick. I think I am going to purchase the old Logitech Force joystick. I have the CH Pro Rudder Pedals (great, a must have!). I don't like the unreal thumb throttle on the Logitech, I will probably purchase the CH Throttle Quadrant when it comes out.

4-0 out of 5 stars X45 The good...The Bad....The ugly!
I have been a gamer for longer than I care to admit. I picked up a Saitek X45 when my MS Sidewinder FFB2 had problems with it's main fire button not working and it's secondary fire button sometimes falling off. Other than that...I always loved it.

Now I have the X45. At first I was thrilled. Just playing with the buttons and dreaming of the possibilities put an ear to ear grin on my face. However, that soon changed. You see, I'm a BF1942 DC player. My specialty as you might have guessed due to my choice in sticks is a pilot. In fact, I dare-say I'm in the top 10% of pilots for that particular game. (Yes, yes...big whoop!) Needless to say, the ability to fly competently is rather important to me.

Here is where my joy became "joyless". BF1942 does not support the X45's throttle or some of it's other axis functions. This is mainly EA Games fault. The "consumers" on the forums at Saitek.com have been working for months trying to fix this problem or work around it. (No, the trend of late for the corporation's to make the customer's be the tech support and think-tank for the rest of it's customers is very much alive and well at Saitek!) The results are rather sad to be honest. But, like I said, this is not completely Saitek's fault.

The problem with the X45 is the ridiculous and cheap way they came up with of centering the stick. It is centered by a large spring compressing a rounded disk piece of plastic(think disk sled) against a round ring, again made of plastic on which it is cradled. To say the least, it is gritty!

Of course if you are into precision....then having to make a small, critical correction during your game might not be possible when the sudden release of surface tension makes you over-correct. Not to mention the audible groan/creaking sound it makes which makes you wonder if anyone within ear-shot thought you might have a slight flatulence problem.

Another thing that is ridiculous would be the flip-top cap some yahoo put on the Launch/Fire button. Who the heck has time to flip that stupid thing up in a time of need? Fortunately, it is easy to remove. I keep it around for when I need a good laugh!

If you are a MechWarrior....You will love this stick! (Minus the grit) The only thing I miss from my MS Sidewinder FFB2 is the FFB. (Force Feed-Back) And again.....the smoothness of the stick. Then again when you are suppose to be in a lumbering 60+ton giant of steel, perhaps a few imperfections here and there might actually make things more realistic! (Grin)

If I decide to keep this stick, besides doing a little bit of metal smithing and replacing the plastic crap on the stick, I'm going to mount it on a wood platform....which they thoughtfully provided mounting holes underneath both units. (Good thinking, Saitek) Otherwise, more aggressive player's such as myself might have a tendency to tilt the joy over in a sudden move of intent.

The X45 does have a few saving graces. #3 is it's program-ability. #2 is it's separate throttle and all the wonderful buttons, POV hats and rotary knobs. #1 would have to be it's price! For ~$70, you CAN'T find a better system in it's class! My only option besides the X45 is the Thrustmaster Cougar. However, even though it is three to four times the price of the X45, I have heard many gripes and complaints about all the tweaking and crap you have to mess with as well as cheap components in the stick. Were I not getting so long-in-the-tooth and have so many other things to worry about, I'd make my own. Then I'd sit back rip what hair I don't have out when the next day, some company finally gets a clue and come out with a near perfect stick at a near perfect price! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best PC Gamepad Out There
I have been looking for a gamepad like this. It feels like your playing a real console with this gamepad. I am a big PC gamer, and there are just some games that a gamepad works much better for, and a lot of people don't play PC games just because of the controllers on console systems. Well this controller brings a new world to PC gaming. I can now play titles that were great for consoles on my PC just like it's on a Playstation 2 or Gamecube. This controller feels wonderful, has PLENTY of buttons, very programmable (including making your own scripts on buttons), and 2 analog sticks. Me and a friend both got one and now we're playing Nintendo 64 games on his laptop and having a BLAST. This gamepad is THE BEST PC GAMEPAD EVER, and for only $20 why even think twice about it? Get it.. you won't be sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars this gamepad rocks!
i had purchased a gravis controller to use for emulators on my laptop. it just didn't cut it. i read some reviews and did my research online and settled on this gamepad. it works perfectly, is comfortable to use and installed easily. i have no complaints. it works really well with my NES emulator. i am now able to enjoy playing ninendo games on my laptop. i would definitely recommend this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great gamepad with only a few drawbacks...
First of all, let me say that I have no regrets after buying and using this gamepad. For $20, it's a steal. The construction feels mostly solid, and the analog sticks are very handy. The "Smart" technology software that comes with this product is mostly useless, and all the games it tested recognize the buttons well. A few minor complaints: the shoulder buttons feel quite flimsy and don't always register button presses, and I wish there were more than 10 buttons. Other than that, this gamepad is a great value.

1-0 out of 5 stars Depends on your use
I'd have to say that satisfaction with this gamepad depends on what games you play. I tried to play NBA Live with it, and found that the D-Pad is too large, and coupled with the design of the shoulder buttons, my left hand was very sore after only 10 minutes of gameplay.

If you don't plan to use the shoulder buttons too much, or at least don't need to press both a shoulder button and navigate using the D-Pad, as with many sports games, then this gamepad might work for you.

For me, the D-Pad's size shocked me even at first glance. It is at least 1 1/2 times as large as any standard gamepad D-Pad. Furthermore, I'd prefer to have two sets of shoulder buttons, as with any good PS2 knockoff, as opposed to Saitek adding a second pair of smaller buttons to the top right, above the standard four buttons. I also found that the two analog controls were a bit too far from the rest of the buttons, adding to the discomfort in my hands. Just to clarify, I have relatively large normal hands, and the soreness is not just from the controller being too big for me. Other than that, the controller is sturdily built; it just does not suit my needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Controller with very minor problems
If you want to play 2-D games then look for Microsoft's Sidewinder Gamepad, it's ease of use is uncanny; however if you want to play 3-D games like Halo PC, then you will need a controller with 2 analog sticks like this one. The controller is a great value and it does what it does extraordinarily well. The buttons are cramped, the shift key is a jip, and the extra software (not including the drivers) did nothing but mess-up my computer, regardless I am glad I chose this controller. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars It was a good gift
When my father told me about he bought a new joystick for me I was wondering a Force feedback II or PRO... but it was a saytek cyborg evo..I got a little dissapointed because i wanted one of the Microsoft joysticks but when i started testing the joy in order to know if it was good or bad my first thougt was "this thing is great" it is comfortable it has enough buttons to configure almost all important functions that u use in a game like Combat flight simulator 1 2 or 3 or other combat sims the twist gives u a total control of the rudder (very important thing in this kind of games) I dont have any problems with the joy...I read some opinions here about some ppl saying that with this joystick there is a bug that make the planes go to the left I think that it is not a bug, anytime that u take off with any joystick if u r playing a realistic sim ur plane will go to the left because the propellors, This also occurs on real planes u need to move the rudder to the right in order to correct this in the take of... in few words im happy with this joystick, the only thing that I think could make this joystick better is Feedback or rumble.. I dont know exactly the expression in english but the thing that give u the sensation of holes in the runaway and turbulence in the air. Sorry about my english ppl but is not my mother language.

1-0 out of 5 stars Fade from Gaming
Just bought this stick. Great look and feel. Good action on throttle and x and y axis. BIG Problem-Saitek knows about it. In MechWarrior4 all version and Need for Speed most version, tends to "fade" to the left. When twist is used, that feature also "pins" to the left and cannot be corrected. The updated driver available on Microsoft's website does not completely correct the problem. It just fades alittle slower. Saitek tech support has not replied to my emails to this point. I think I will try one of the Logitech products or Microsoft's. MS is much more expensive, but they always work.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done, fair for the price
I use this with X-Plane, I love having a full HOTAS set-up, or even better a Cyrus console or yoke with pedals, BUT, because of my mobile (even nomadic) lifestyle I needed something that will get the job done and not take up a lot of space. This stick has the three essential flight controls - ailerons, rudder, and throttle, plus convenient buttons to set-up as elevator trim and flaps controls. There is an 8-way hat, which is convenient for view control or, if you prefer, elevator and rudder trim controls. There is enough buttons for convenient landing gear, brakes, and engine controls. The only issue I have with this stick is the spring tension, well it's not terrible, its useable, but I really wish it was tighter (I'm considering manually replacing the spring). All factors considered - this stick accomplishes my need for a compact, yet functional flight control, for a fair price.

I would like to note that the left-drifting tendency that Tim Schindler has experienced is likely the simulated torque effect of propeller driven aircraft.

3-0 out of 5 stars eh.. not bad
Well, the base is stable, and the joystick is precise enough that I don't notice any drifting while playing games. I did notice drifting while testing it in the control panel, but as long as it doesn't get any worse, I guess it's okay.

Unfortunately, this joystick is about as comfortable as it looks, and button placement is a little awkward. Still, having 5 buttons and a hat switch at thumb's reach is pretty good. Your arm might also nudge the throttle (which is at the back), depending on how you adjust the palm rest.

It's not all bad, though. The "single spring gimbal mechanism" gives the joystick a very smooth feel... you can move the stick in circles, for example, without feeling the axes shift. It's not ideal for giving the joystick a well-defined center, but like I said, it's okay as long as it doesn't get any worse.

All in all, it's an average joystick that'll do the job. You'll get about what you pay for.

3-0 out of 5 stars Drifts to the left, a BIG annoyance.
I recently purchased this joystick because I saw it at BestBuy awhile ago and I liked the feel and look of it. A month later I decided to buy it.

When it arrived, I installed the drivers, I loaded up World War 2 Online, and noticed instantly that it drifts to the left, even when you are not touching it! I went to the support forums for the Saitek Cyborg Evo and noticed that quite a few other people are having the problem of the joystick drifting to the left and the calibration not saving. You have to recalibrate the joystick each time you restart and for some people, including me, it does not fix the problem of the drifting.

I also noticed while viewing the support forums that some Saitek joysticks also had the same problem in the past.

Its a good joystick, but I would stay away until the left drift problem and calibration saving problem is gone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars P3000 Wireless - Good deal for the money!
I purchased the P3000 from Saitek last weekend and have enjoyed using it. It was real easy to hook it up and I am enjoying the gaming freedom of playing without an additional wire hanging around.

It has a good feel to it with grips on the handles and a sturdy sense for the buttons (six of them) and joysticks (2 analog with that also act as buttons).

Saitek also includes software that lets you program in various commands for the buttons which is an added bonus.

This is the second Saitek product I own - the Cyborg Evo is also a great product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Saitek J64 P3000 Wireless Pad
I have had the pad for 3 months and am disappointed with not only the pad but also the lack of customer service that Saitek provides. The indicator light, on the base always shows that it is charging, the pads battery strength is either all, or the pad goes dead. The strength indicator is fake or does not work. Also the pad looses communication with the base at, what seems to be the worst possible time. Even when I have the base with in a clear 4 inches of the unit they loose communication on a regular basis. I contacted customer support at Saitek over a month ago and never received ANY reply to my email. I do not recommend buying this and furthermore recommend Logitec products. I have one of their force feedback joysticks and am happy with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Gamepad
Good feel to it and very light. Rubber handles are a nice touch. Highly recommended gamepad. 1 small quibble, the CD with the drivers on it came warped so I downloaded them from the saitek website, it the only thing that kept the P3000 from earning 5 stars from me. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for the money but...
Considering it is a fairly cheap wheel I suppose you get what you pay for;

It is sturdy but the pedals dont have a high enough resistance and IMO have too much travel in them.

The paddles are easy to reach but the other buttons are a little awkward and take some searching-for if you are in the heat of a moment.

The steering is EXTREMELY notchy, which for the game I play makes this wheel almost impossible to use with certain high powered rear wheel cars that are extremely sensitive to slight movements.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good choice, but...
This wheel is good: it feels in hands more real than Logitech Wingman Force GP and MS SideWinder FF2. Buttons are comfortable; pedals are unusual, but works good and never slips on the floor.

But it has *big* problem - drivers (at least, for Win2k). After couple weeks of struggling I've returned it and have bought Logitech Momo Racing Wheel. And glad about that, MOMO is much better :)

Bottom line: really good wheel, but not for Win2k

5-0 out of 5 stars Hot contender for performance king
Liked:
Realism and performance: The latest implementation of Force Feedback supports 16 effects simultaneously (earlier generations: one at a time) for the most accurate feel - and hence best driving performance.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Solid Buy for the Console Gamer in You
I bought this controller on impulse after I found myself playing a some ported console games and emulators with no proper game pad, and I was pleasantly surprised by its solid design and features.

After some difficulties getting the drivers installed (a well-documented problem which I resolved by reading the online FAQs and may be resolved in the next driver release as they have beta drivers you can download on the Saitek forums that resolve the issue), I found that the driver software and key programming software is solid and intuitive.

The design of this controller is practically identical to Saitek's P800, and I can't blame them for keeping the same design. All of the buttons are responsive and easy to access, and the directional pad is accurate and solid, though it may take a bit of time to get used to it because it can feel too responsive at first.

The analog sticks are smooth and accurate, and also click in to act as buttons themselves. I wouldn't recommend binding these buttons for any vital tasks in games because they can be accidentally depressed, but for adjusting camera views or some similar functions, it can come in handy.

Overall, the large shoulder buttons and grips make this controller very comfortable for long periods of use, and basically make it a joy to use.

The rumble effects leave a bit to be desired, though, because I have yet to see the rumble effects work in games that don't use TouchSense's technology. This may simply be a problem with the fact that most PC games aren't designed to use a game pad, so there are few that actually have any force-feedback effects for me to really determine if the issue is with the controller or just the games I'm playing. However, in a game that does use TouchSense, such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, the effects are spot on, and overall a bit too intense at 100% gain (I personally set mine down to 60%).

Since rumble capability is the only thing that separates this controller from the P800, you should evaluate your own gaming habits and decide if it justifies the (small) price difference.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent controller
Cons: The rumble is inaccurate. Digital button sometimes doesnt work.
Pros: Good layout, durable design. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best wireless option for PS2
The best selling point is the ability to use normal PS2 controllers which are far superior to all RF controllers on the market.The unit is rechargeable, so you don't eat up batteries.Works great.

2-0 out of 5 stars Looked cool :(
I am an avid ps2 gamer. I purchased this from a local store because of its apparent convenience. Was I ever wrong. The device has a battery indicator on it with 4 bars. When the batteries go down to 3 bars, I have a very sporadic connection to my ps2 (my ps2 is only 10ft away). After a while of playing Everquest Online, this became very annoying and inconvenient. After a month, I ditched this and bought a cable extender. Another expensive lesson.:(

1-0 out of 5 stars doesn't work at all
i have only 2 games for my PC (i'm not much of a gamer on PCs i prefer consoles over anything else) "The Sum of All Fears" and "Sonic and Knuckles Collection". I bought this thing today, because i hate having to use the keyboard and mouse. i swear i knew from the getgo, i was going to end up returning it. i should have heeded my own warning. neither game would work with it. On TSOAF game, there isn't a thing in the options to calibrate the game for a controller, it will only play using keyboard and mouse, worthless game yeah, but hey, I wanted to play it. Now on S&KC, this game was originally designed for Windows 95, but i still kept the disc anyway because i love the Sonic games, and it said on the booklet, will work with a gamepad or whatever these monsters are called.

Now I know it's most likely the fault of the games, but still, what good is a controller, if the games you have won't play with it. I am not gonna even bother buying another controller, i am done with PC gaming. End of story.

3-0 out of 5 stars Saitek USB controller
I got two of these pads after reading many reviews saying that
its not a bad controller.
That especially for the price its good.
Very cheap, got a couple for 20.00 total. Its very easy to get started with my computer. All I had to do was plug them in and they were on and working, just like console controllers. Also, they are compatible with every game I want to play.
Compatible meaning the buttons work. Thats why I give it 3 stars and not 2 or 1. But when it comes to how well the joystick works for certain games, thats where a problem starts. I play mainly 2 types of 2d games on my PC, platformers and fighting games. On the platformers this controller works good enough. On the fighting games, its not very good at all. The D-Pad is designed in an unsual way, there is a hole in the center. After playing for 5 minuites, my thumb hurts. After a couple of days you get a little used to it, but the moves are still much to hard to execute.
2-d Platformers, or any simple low intensity game: I'd give it 3 or 4 stars.
Fighing Games, or any high intensity game: Two stars.
Fighting gamers, keep looking. Any one else, make sure you test one before you buy 2!

3-0 out of 5 stars You Get What You Pay For
I bought the Saitek P220 game pad because I needed a cheap USB controller to play classic arcade games on my laptop. For the most part, it's a decent controller. It features a total of 8 buttons (six on the front and two on the the top) so it's versatile enough for simple jump-and-shoot games as well as complex fighting games.

A unique, but unusable, feature is the center throttle button. There are four settings that can be selected by pressing it either up or down. Also, you can go for a more precise control by holding it and slowly increasing/decreasing the speed. I'm guessing it was made to give the user better control with acceleration in racing games, but it will take some time to get used to it. Your better off buying some pedals and a steering wheel.

This 8-way directional button is not as precise as it should be but this is a problem with every game pad (made specifically for PC's) that I have seen. The build quality needs some work because some buttons are looser or stick up higher than others. However, since this is the cheapest controller I could find, that was expected.

All in all, this is a good cheap controller. Setup was a snap with Windows XP, it really is plug-and-play. I've had it for almost a month and it's still working. If you're looking for a cheap controller this is the one for you. If you're looking for a hard-core controller, look elsewhere. For $, what do you expect? ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Drivers are unstable on WinXP
The drivers I got from Saiteks website made my system crash to shutdown/restart. I use it with only Flight Simulator 2004 becuase it doesn't seem to be suited for RTCW, Quake, and other shooters. It crashes with every game. The only way I can get it to stop crashing is to plug it in when I'm in the game and ready to start playing, but NEVER start up the system with it plugged in. It also induces the problem. It works great otherwise.
The cord says it will expose you to lead, and I wonder who would be dumb enough to put lead in it anyway...

3-0 out of 5 stars Test in Progress
Currently testing this model w/ MS Flight Sim '04. Comfort level is good due to adjustable palm rest that accomodates Lefties as well as us normal people. Ha-Ha. Operation has been solid and responsive thus far, Will update in one month. Question about the lead warning label on cable. I don't know the severity or risk level. ???? ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of junk!
This would be a nifty little contraption if it wasn't for the fact that you can't change the top -- my primary impetus for buying it.

I have a Handspring Visor and lost my stylus. I didn't want to pay for shipping on a new stylus 3-pack from Handspring, so I went to Best Buy and purchased this instead. Not only can you not change the top so that it fits in the Visor properly, but now the entire headpiece falls out constantly so that the bottom part of the stylus gets stuck in the stylus-holder. Oh, and did I mention that the light function only works part of the time?

Not worth your time or effort.

4-0 out of 5 stars Okay
It works and does what its supposed to But,I CAN'T get the top off to change the size for different pda's Help

4-0 out of 5 stars What a great idea!
For years, I've seen combination pens with lights, but this lighted stylus is just the ticket for using your PDA in the dark, especially on Palm models with an unlit Graffiti panel.

The Light Stylus comes with four interchangeable tops to fit a wide variety of PalmOS PDAs (the one I bought doesn't claim to fit PocketPC models.) One of them was a near-perfect match for my Palm i705 stylus, and in fact fit even better than the factory stylus in that it isn't as tight a fit. I did have some difficulty switching the top - there are no instructions - but a firm pull does the trick. There's even a reset pin under the top!

The light is yellow and reasonably bright - good enough for use in the dark, though it's no flashlight. As a general-use stylus, it works well - the translucent plastic tip has a good writing feel. The only issue I have, and this is minor, is that sometimes you have to play with the rotation of the top to get the light to stay on, or off. Once you find the right position, though, it stays.

Inexpensive enough to be an impulse-buy (as it was for me), the Saitek Light Stylus is a great idea at a great price. I recommend it to all Palm PDA users. ... Read more
