Showing 1-5 of 5
The only budget force feedback wheel worth your time.

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.
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.
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).
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.
