5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

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

Other Thoughts: 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!

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

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 manager processes to install it. The technical support was rude and I work at a tech support call center so I think it is safe for me to pass that judgement. The base of the joystick lifts up every time you move the stick. I am sure Saitek makes some good joysticks but the Cyborg X is not one of them.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this joystick to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

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 build and of course it looks great.

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 telepathic commands very well.

Other Thoughts: 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. All in all I love it and recommend it to anyone looking for a midlevel flight stick, Great!

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

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 good in hand.

The throttle slider can be considered another pro, though I don't use it. It works nice, and can split to be 2 different sliders.

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 still hard to getting my targeting reticle where I want it. It causes the smaller movements to be kind of jerky. I feel if it was not as tight, my movement would be smoother?

The cord could be a little longer maybe, not too short though.

Other Thoughts: 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.

I think it fits in with the price, good mid level stick. It feels a lot better than a cheap $20 stick, but you could do better if you want to spend some more money. So you get what you payfor I guess.
