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 self- centering point actually seems to work against you as you are speeding down the straightaway, causing one to have to rock the wheel back and forth to maintain your path.
The wheel itself is awesome, the software has some kinks

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. My desk is on a corner and it fits on the corner of my room. The moniter is on the center where this corner is, so usually, most things have trouble fitting, but this fits almost perfectly.
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. I reccomend you spend your money on something else.
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 of a moment.
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). After couple weeks of struggling I've returned it and have bought Logitech Momo Racing Wheel.
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.
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. You'll knacker the steering wheel before you knacker yourself. Good points are the sheer rattle given to your forearms when the thing kicks in. Heavy stuff. And ...
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. As well as this there is another gear lever to the side, selector buttons on the wheel itself and of course the pedals. The wheel performed well in games like Colin McCrae and GP3 with good response from the wheel. The force feedback has a good "kick" and can ...
