How about some decent instructions

Summary: The wheel works well with my ps3. However. Logitech directions are awful for a 200 dollar item. I get much more info from a computer game that costs 50 bucks. They should include a well thought out manual with written directions, a CD? Or a link to its online site. Also, I had trouble figuring out the clamps on the wheel. You have to turn the knobs on either side of the wheel on the topside to loosen them up. Of course, no directions on this.
Summary: As of this time, I am on my second wheel, and in the process of getting this one warrantied as well since it is failing the same way as my first one. Here's the issue that I have with the wheel: Upon plugging it in to allow it to calibrate, it will attempt to spin the wheel all the way to the right. But when it does, you can watch it cut out multiple times. Now, it still completes calibration, but this is a big problem.
Summary: The Gearshift Support does not fit on the playseat properly and it comes with no instructions or screws to help you put it on.I bought this product for my daughter for xmas and we still can’t get it to sit right.I am thinking about sending this whole expensive seat back to the dealer!!!!!!!!!
Summary: As some others have commented, in Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3, the wheel loses centering calibration often. When starting a race, the wheel can start off 5-10 degress off center (always to the left) which I could live with, but by the end of a hard race, it will be way off like 90 degrees making it very hard to distinguish between up and down paddle shifters when turning, among other annoyances.
Summary: The G27 wheel is not 100% compatible with GT5. In fact, you cannot assign functions to the wheel buttons. This is important if you want the e-brake for dirt/rally racing. The buttons on the shifter also cannot be reassigned any game functions. So, buy a different wheel for GT5 I have reviewed the Logitech support forums for this product. Many users are reporting issues using this wheel with GT5.
Summary: Very good steering wheel as long as it doesn't break, i didn't play it much during my first year with it because I didn't have a good computer set up, but when i did build my computer and played NFS like crazy on it, after maybe 10 hours it broke, probably due to intense steering and hence 300$ disappeared with warranty expired since it is only one year.
