Pros: As far as control, i would say this wheel is excellent. Great response and all buttons are easy to reach.
Cons: The frame that holds it in place broke in the first hour. Possibly because of the style my desk, but i had to really tighten it down otherwise it would slide all over the place. Due to that, when I was fighting the force feedback through a rough turn, the frame split in two.
Games DON'T Fully Support ALL Force Feedback Effects

Summary: I've tried many different racing games, driving simulators, and other games using this wheel controller, and NONE so far actually use all the effects for force feedback. (there seems to be 10 or 12 effects, shown in the Gaming Software Profile Manager's DEMO section) I've just had the rumble, and...
Pros: The Wheel's DEMO Gaming Software Profile manager shows many good Force Feedback Effects, and is Strong when each demos button is pressed... but that's about all.
Cons: The Actual Games DON'T FULLY Support all the Force Feedback Effects, and the GAS/BRAKE section slides all over the place while you're trying to use the GAS and BRAKE during the game. (I've had this wheel for over two(2) years now, (at the time of this review) and am very disappointed with its lac...
Summary: It would seem that I have received a defective unit. It has a problem with keeping feedback up for more then 3 seconds. And it does not like fast movements as that causing the wheel to lose all sense and then suddenly come back but offset.
Summary: The wheel worked flawlessly, for about a week. It then developed a problem where it would not return to center. The center position would slowly drift counter-clockwise. As you can imagine, this just won't do when racing!
Summary: If you are new to the wheel scene for gaming this would be a good buy. However if you are a hard core racer this wheel is not for you. The wheel is nice, it fits a wide range of desks, and secures very well.
Summary: I purchased this wheel after vast researching and I must say I love the way it feels. The wheel assembly iteslf is outstanding!! The one shortfall was the paddle shifters as they do break. The pedal assembly is a completely different story.
