Performance

Paddle shift feels flimsy, when you pull the paddle there is a lot of play before anything happens, feels cheap. The rest of the wheel seems decent, I think the force feedback is adjustable, whatever it was set to as default in GT5P is too high. The shifter also is a miss in my opinion, and the clutch isn't supported in GT5P. The problem with the shifter is the mechanism to depress the knob for reverse, it's easy to push in partially and cause you to miss a gear, also getting reverse wasn't 100%, also had a problem with the shifter not working at all after about 15 mins, restarted the game and it was back. All in all, I think it's a decent wheel, but all the reviews I read made it sound better than it actually is, it definitely has its shortcomings. I think a seat that is designed to mount a wheel like this is almost a necessity with this wheel, playing with it mounted to a light weight table will only frustrate you. I was hoping it would seem more realistic than it did, still feels very arcade like to me. I'm curious if this wheel with all of its features is really any better than the logitech gran turismo wheel for far less money, most of the extra features aren't supported by the game which makes them useless, and shifting with the 6 speed with no clutch support is just stupid.

Excellent wheel with that arcade feel

by Jack D on 8/11/2010

Great wheel at a better price. Had a few issues to start with, turns out you need to connect directly to the mobo USB, and not a USB hub (although it worked initially). Logitech customer support pretty good actually. Wheel is great, heavy solid feel to it and great with Dirt2. My only complaint, an on/off switch would have been nice, have to unplug the USB to prevent it calibrating each time I turn computer on. Overall, more than impressed! Read More

A must have for PS3 racing games

by Keith C on 8/21/2010

This thing is incredible, that is indisputable. I bought this for PS3 and currently use it with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Midnight Club: Los Angeles. It is amazing how responsive it is, both in the force feedback in the wheel, and how your movements affect the handling so realistically in the game. I could not go back to the regular PS3 controller after owning this. The only reason for not giving a perfect score was because of the high price (though I got it on sale for $215) and because the controls are not all that customizable... currently. For both games I mentioned the paddle shifters do not work. Supposedly this will be fixed in the full release of GT5, and I hope other new racing games will be more compatible as well. Another knock is the buttons on the wheel. All the buttons on the left register as L1 and all the buttons on the right register as R1 and cannot be programmed individually. Really this is the game's fault though and not the wheel. Even without these features I still highly recommend this. My only other complaint is the length of the USB cable to attach it to the console. If you have a big screen and don't want to sit four feet from the screen you either need to move your PS3 out of the cabinet or get a USB extension cable, which I plan to try shortly. Read More
