I've been very satisfied with mine. The control stick, throttle, and all other controls are silky smooth. The rubber grips are great for all gamers, and both the throttle and stick are very ergonomic. The stick and throttle are both very customizable. You can change the throttle resistance, and modify the stick to suit your hand.

Some people complain that the stick is too "loose" and easy to move, but it's a matter of getting used to it. Personally, I have better control on the x52 than on other sticks with more resistance.

The LCD is very beneficial, contrary to most peoples' opinions. The clock can help you keep track of time while playing, so you don't have to minimize the game just to check the time. The timer is also helpful when you want to log flight times.

I love how there are 3 modes, so that you can program almost anything you want without running out of buttons. The lighting is superb, and gives it a great visual flare.

The x52 is a great controller, loaded with buttons and features. Lastly, to make a great controller even better, the stainless steel, rubber grips, LED lights, and LCD make the Saitek x52 drop-dead sexy.
