"I absolutely love this racing wheel

Summary: Bought this for my teenage son. He says, "I absolutely love this racing wheel. It is very realistic and the force feedback feels great. It is also very well weighted. Also, the REAL METAL paddle shifters feel amazing, like MadCatz sourced them directly off a real race car!
Summary: I bought this wheel three years ago around the same time I bought Forza 4. From a gameplay point of view, it's an amazing wheel. The wheel fights you in the corners and tells you when the car is at its limit. If you want a longer description of how the wheel plays, read the other 5-star views.
Develops issues over time for a number of people (most?), including myself :-/

Summary: This is probably the most affordable racing wheel around, and quite a lot of fun. Unfortunately, they've fitted it with a potentiometer that stops working after a while, and the wheel starts twitching by itself! There's a host of people of the same problem.
Summary: Amazon price gouged at Christmas and charged a hundred dollars more for the same item I bought from them a week earlier, I e-mailed them about the price fixing for the holidays and they said ya we uped it since last week a hundred bucks and that was that, they change the price based on demand, more...
Summary: I was looking for this wheel but it was 250 bucks everywhere I looked. When I found it on Amazon for 180, I thought it was a miss print. Nope. When it showed up it was exactly what was in the picture, the new model wheel with pedals. Quality is outstanding. Feel is great.
Summary: This Matcatz wheel for the Xbox works great in combination with Forza 4 . The overall responsiveness, and the build quality (mostly) is great, however there are some annoyances. First of all the force feedback is realistic, and the wheel feels solid in your hands.
Summary: This Mad Catz Wheel is a massive waste of money. If you want an honest review of this item, check the Inside Sim Racing review on YouTube. I agree completely with them. My main issue with this wheel is the cheap set of pedals! And those crappy gas and brake pedals are your only compatible option.
