review found on the net:

I bought this joystick to replace my Saitek x45 Digital Flight Stick when I realized at a LAN party that the cords were way to long and messy on the x45. So I decided to go wireless, wireless keyboard and mouse. But I had problems finding a good wireless joystick…until I found this one. Like all the other Saitek joysticks I have owned, the Cyborg Evo Wireless is slick looking and fully customizable. And of course, it’s wireless.

Whether you’re a righty or a lefty, you can move the butt of the joystick up or down, flip it around, whatever you want to do. You can tilt the head of the joystick one way or another, and you can raise or lower the platform with buttons 2, 3, and 4. But that isn’t the end of this thing’s customizability. Like all other Saitek joysticks, this comes with their SST smart programming software. You can program one of this joystick’s 12 buttons (not including the axes or the hat) to do anything you wish…you can even macro program them!

The joystick performs quite well in gaming situations and doesn’t lag or miss a beat at all. The stick feels quite sturdy, although being mostly plastic. Saitek sure does make some sturdy plastics. The stick is able to sustain my beatings of whipping it around when flying my helicopter in Battlefield: Vietnam.

I only have one complaint about this joystick, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. Every once and a while I get some connectivity issues if I leave the joystick alone for an extended period of time and then come back to it. Since the joystick has an auto-sleep funciton, after it goes to sleep for a long while it loses its lock on the transmitter. But pressing the connect button doesn’t solve the problem. I have to take the battery out and put it back in for it to connect. Other than that, however, a very sturdy joystick and definately worth the money, especially if you are looking to remove the clutter from your desk from all those wires.
