Hi guys, I want to get myself a X45 but I couldn't find it in any local PC/game store in Vancouver. I don't mean to buy it online, I want to get it in a store which I feel more secure. Any help please?

a local Best Buy store would have them thats if you have one of those stores near by, the only other option would be to order it online at: www.saitek.com (http://www.saitek.com)

Try Compusmart on the corner of Georgia & Seymour. I've noticed they have stuff like rudder pedals. If they don't have it they can order it for you.

I ordered a Plantronic DSP 500 Headset from them. It took 4 days and good price compared to those I found on the internet.

It's a kind of funny, no retailer? So there is no way to buy their product unless you have a credit card? Same as the Cougar, I would like to at least take a look at what I am going to buy before spending some 300+ USD/400+ CAD. After all, buying a joystick is all about "the feel" right? Buy it online? Can you try/hold a x45 or Cougar online? lol

As weird as this may sound, Radio shack seems to have a good selection of sticks. I bought mine at the Oakridge location and they had quite a collection of different models.

Things are too expensive in Canada bro. If you know anyone in the States or have a chance to come down to shop...get one here. Most of my Canadian friends have me ferret out and or purchase products for them here as things are cheaper in New York than most other places by comparison.

Ataw:

I too looked all over the Lower Mainland and Vancouver..no luck...Saitek does not list their retail connections on their website either...I ended up ordering one from Ontario via the Web...it was sent via the Canadian postal system on Wednesday..The only other suggestion would be to look in Bellingham

Not nescesarly true...I did a comparison of the cost to buy in Ontario vrs direct from Saitek....with exchange rate and the additional $26.00 fee to import the stick, I saved $20.00..
