Gladiator NXT from VKB sim, good stick to buy?

Any thoughts on the Gladiator NXT from VKB sim, good stick to buy? I fly civilian and military simulators and decided I want to keep flying with a stick. My Logitech joystick is old and needs replacement and I think the MaRS sensors in the Gladiator are better than the pots in other sticks. I heard the first products have been shipped now, maybe someone can share their first impressions?
