Saitek - X45 Joystick and Throttle


You can buy a joystick for under £10, but what you get is likely to be all plastic with very little feel and a potential lifespan measured in minutes. If you take your games seriously and ...

100 inc. VAT probably seems a lot to spend on a joystick, even if it does come with a separate throttle unit for flight simulators. When you see and use the X45, though, you realise that for some things in life, there's a justifiable price premium....

Great layout. ..Poor durability!!!!


Excellent trigger/buttons layout. Tons of buttons/controls. Throttle plugs into Stick. Only one USBplug into PC.

It breaks down too easy! Signal spiking is intolerable after a year and a half.
