Excerpt: Perhaps I'm just used to driving an actual car with a steering wheel, and playing racing games with keyboards or game pads, but I didn't expect using this wheel to be this difficult. The wheel has force feedback, so there is resistance in the wheel when you try to turn, much like the newer cars today [I still prefer the lighter steering of the cars from yesteryear].
a little over rated, well done, but not for me on a PS3 with GT5

Summary: I've read every review, tons of youtube videos, and researched every wheel available for the PS3 and GT5. I have been gaming for well over 15 years and have a career in technical support so I have pretty high expectations when I spend a lot of money for a game add-on. This was my first wheel due to the value, guaranteed GT5 support, and the countless recommendations. My lap times went up (bad) by 5 seconds on average (spent one week getting used to it).
Summary: First off, I know my way around a car, know and understand driving and racing dynamics, and am a car enthusiast above all. I understand concepts of trail-braking, lift-off oversteer, etc. etc. So I'm not your average casual driving enthusiast. Unfortunately, my level of tast in cars and racing does not meet my budget - (currently in college). So this is the best I could come up with for the money. I paid $100 with free shipping for this wheel.
Great wheel with minor flaws, BUT: support lacks from games...

Summary: Having used the Microsoft Wireless Wheel on my kids' XBOX 360 I decided to get one for my PS3, thinking that it would be great to dust off the amazing-looking Motorsport. Much to my dismay I found (and I truly hope someone will call me an idiot and show me how to make this work) that Force Feedback is not supported in that game.
Summary: Noin kolmisen vuotta sitten, ostin GT5, ps3 ja kysisen ratin mielestäni halpaan hintaan. Tuollon ratti maksoi 90e ja ihmettelen suuresti miksi hinta on kallistutunt? Ratilla tuli alkuaikoina pelattua päivittäin mutta nykyään noin pari kertaa kuukaudessa. Ratissa on 3v takuu jota jälleenmyyjät eivät saaneet pidentää. Sen ajan tuo toimikin ihan täydellisesti, mutta nyt 3.5 vuoden jälkeen tämän feedback toiminto lakkasi toimimasta, tietysti takuuajan ummettua...
