The only budget force feedback wheel worth your time.

Elizabeth Sterling, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: Though the one I purched through GreatGoods2012 was in poor condition and lacked a power cable I eventually got a decently priced one elsewhere. The Saitek 440 is the only budget wheel worth considering if you're sim racing. The next best option is approximately $60 further up the market.

An Excellent Racing Wheel / Pedal Set

G. Hognes, Amazon
4 December 2010
  • Summary: Have had this setup for years and while it still works great I've semi-retired it and use a G-25 Logitech nowadays. It'll still make a great backup if the G-25 breaks down!

OK FFB racing wheel

T. Gorman "Triad773", Amazon

  • Summary: I got this driving wheel to enjoy the GT Legends game for Windows PC. After having had it for some months, I'd say that I was disappointed with the way the motors interpret the forces, which is (in my opinion) unrealistic.

The wheel itself is awesome, the software has some kinks

J. Lee "Happy Buyer", Amazon

  • Summary: I think that the wheel itself is excellent for the price. I play Richard Burns Rally with it, and it does its job very well. The wheel itself is sturdy. The clamping system for the wheel to stay put on the desk fits almost anywhere in any position, normal or odd.

Okay, But Only Lasted 1 Week.

  • Summary: I bought this wheel for 80 dollars at Circuit City, and to tell the truth it was a waste of my money. It is very bulky and it barely fit on my desk, and the racing just isn't realistic in my opinion. After one week (I took very good care of it) it just broke, stopped working.

Good for the money but...

Michael Simons, Amazon
30 March 2004
  • Summary: Considering it is a fairly cheap wheel I suppose you get what you pay for; It is sturdy but the pedals dont have a high enough resistance and IMO have too much travel in them. The paddles are easy to reach but the other buttons are a little awkward and take some searching-for if you are in the heat...

Good choice, but...

"e_rimsky", Amazon
30 September 2003
  • Summary: This wheel is good: it feels in hands more real than Logitech Wingman Force GP and MS SideWinder FF2. Buttons are comfortable; pedals are unusual, but works good and never slips on the floor. But it has *big* problem - drivers (at least, for Win2k).

Hot contender for performance king

Michael Simons, Amazon
31 August 2003
  • Summary: Liked: Realism and performance: The latest implementation of Force Feedback supports 16 effects simultaneously (earlier generations: one at a time) for the most accurate feel - and hence best driving performance. Styling: Saitek are wild! Pedals: top-hinged - and engineering masterpiece.

Force feeding

  • Excerpt: Saitek have created a beast here. Great looks, comfortable wheel, force feedback, what more could you want? The drawback with this is the pedals. They're a bit flimsy, and fall apart when used too much. If, like me flooring the throttle is your favourite pasttime, then forget long races.
  • Pros: Looks and feels great
  • Cons: Flimsy Pedals

Good performer

neils, Ciao

  • Excerpt: There are loads of wheels out there now but this takes some beating. I was initially drawn by the paddles behind the wheel, like the gear change on F1 cars, as not many seem to have this.
  • Pros: Improves driving games
  • Cons: Needs a flat desk to clip to
