I had a USB x36 and I liked it alot. It still works fine, though I use a CH set up now. I would recommend it, as long as it has a USB connector. The only part that isn't so great is the rudder control, which is a rocker on the throttle. I couldn't stand it, so I ended up getting CH pedals.

If its the USB it should i hope be ok if it is the gameport and you have XP you cannot programme it, it will work with basic functions like throttle and guns, but NOT with a lot of the other stuff as XP will not allow it to use the Key commands from the keyboard......... that is why Saitek dropped it and went to the 45 model Not totally sure about the USB version though, that might work, but the gameport wont properly with xp

looks like the USB will work see www.saitek.com (http://www.saitek.com)


As for the game port this is the blurb from the site

Windows 2000/XP
The X36 Gameport is our oldest product and development ceased on the combo back in 1998, shortly before it was discontinued in production. Development will not be started again on this controller because it would be hampered by the fact that the X36 is unlikely to work on any PC that is powerful enough to comfortably run 2000 or XP due to the keyboard pass-through that it uses. This is the source of the programming ability for the stick and on modern-day faster PC's there is too much information coming through on this connection and the stick gets locked up, thus handicapping the full use of the combo. Therefore under 2000 and XP we will only be supporting our current, USB-connected controllers. Sorry for any inconvenience.
