Summary: This wheel replaced an old Thrustmaster wheel and pedal setup. For PC games, it has been outstanding, and since it has such a nice following and is USB, it has limited support on the PS2 and PS3 Gran Turismo games. I am not sure about other games at this point. The good: Has held up well for several years of PC and PS2/PS3 gaming. Force feedback is adjustable, and the quality and feature set is typical Logitech (nice quality and value).
Summary: I don't know where to begin. The pedals stay in place, and I like the resistance on the brake pedal. Both the paddle and gear shifters are firm and well placed, and the mounting system holds the wheel in place firmly. I really like the adjustable resistance of the centering mechanism. Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel had three settings, none of which felt quite right.
Summary: Greetings, First let me give a little history and equipment list. I've had four Logitech non-force feedback wheels from the late 90s to early 2000s (yellow and black). After going through those I stepped up to the red force feedback (not the MOMO). I enjoyed that and could sense the improvement over the older yellow non-force feedback wheels. Any wheel is better than no wheel. My system is a Dell XPS 400 with 256mb video ram and 4gig of ram. OS is XP.
Summary: Overall, this is a great wheel, one of the best for the PC without going to the very expensive 900 degree wheels. Feel - the wheel feel is excellent and durable. This is my second one of these - my last was still in good condition after three years of reasonable use. Feedback - the Momo has great feedback for most games. I personally wish it were a little stronger, but it is adjustable and feels good - not cheap, weak and 'plastic' like some other wheels out there.
Summary: For the most part it's a good wheel. The steering is precise and force feedback is OK. Only if they could do something about the gear noise and rubber coming off the wheel in small pieces it would have been perfect.
Summary: This MOMO racing wheel is a significant upgrade over the basic $40 Logitech racing wheel which I enjoyed using for two or three years. The basic model has a very light feel with no resistance whatever and no ForceFeedback option. The MOMO wheel has stiffer resistance plus more precision, and you can turn on ForceFeedback to give an even better feel of the road. The MOMO wheel offers "paddle" shifters behind the wheel right at your fingertips.
Summary: My wife bought this racing wheel for me and i think its a great racing wheel the only thing i dont like is that i cannot turn off how tight the steering is. it does have a VERY realistic driving feel to it. I really like it!
Summary: Unless you're a professional racecar driver looking to recreate your real world experience this wheel should satisfy you. Yes it would be nice if it were made of leather and steel, but if that's the level of realism you want I don't see how you'll ever be satisfied unless you complete the effect with a steel chassis around your computer and an open can of gas nearby for the authentic road smell.
Summary: The wheel's FF and feel and overall quality are very good. It is extremely useful to have the option of paddle or stick shifter. I use my paddles to shift and the pull back on the shifter as the handbrake and push forward is clutch. I have also had the stick as shift and paddles as clutch and ebrake. Pedals and wheel are both very precise. Of course, as with most people, I am having occasional trouble with the pedals. Mainly the brake 'sticking' on.
Summary: I've ready multiple reviews of the paddle shifters breaking on this wheel, but being I use the stick shift, that hasn't happened to me yet :-D I've had the wheel for about 5 months or so now. It hasn't been flawless, unfortunately. I've noticed that the deadzone, when in the calibration window used to be none-existant; it picked up EVERY little change in movement of the wheel... now there is a slight dead zone on it. Hasn't affected my racing, though so that is good.
