Summary: After one day of owning this wheel, I'm ready to give it my initial review. The first thing I noticed about the wheel is just how well packaged it is. The manufacturer packaging is smart, attractive, and strong, and will make a wonderful storage case for the wheel without hiding it away.
Summary: I have read different reviews giving various pros and cons of this unit (lack of force feedback and no desk mount / having to hold the unit up yourself seeming to be the ones mentioned most).
Pros: Well constructed one-piece steering wheel unit. Plenty of mappable, labeled buttons to utilize for most, if not all, of a particular game's optiions on the wheel. The pedals and shift lever on the back have a nice action and throw to them. Far better than using a gamepad, even ones with analog st...
Cons: As many online reviews have stated, there is no force feedback. Definitely a nice option to have, however I can overlook the absence of that given the control, not in just in steering but in the ability to better modulate throttle and braking, that the SRW-S1 gives you. There is a threaded metal ...
Takes some getting used to, but surprisingly good for a compact wheel
15 March 2012
Summary: First thing you'll need to know is that if you've used other wheels (the kind with a fixed base), this one will take some getting used to. It's not attached to anything but a long, sturdy USB chord and relies on accelerometers for sensing input, like a smartphone or a wiimote.
Summary: I am entirely happy with this product, and be advised that this review is written from a vefy narrow point of view. I generally do PC flight simulations and avoid "platform gagmes" (X-box, Atari, Sega, whatever....) altogether.
Summary: The product is a bit on the expensive side ( althought I have paid like $150 for a FFB with pedals, and gas and brake and shifter paddles ). I really DISLIKE having to use Pedals for gas/brake and shortly after Thrustmaster was acquired by Guillemont, there haven't been any good wheels with...
Summary: I don't have the space or inclination for a full wheel. I was using an xBox controller and this was a huge step up. Control is precise and it feels solid and well made. Cable is fairly long and made of durable cloth covered shielding.
Summary: Nice wheel. Not too big and not too heavy. It's a little difficult to reach some of the buttons while also using the throttle and brake paddles (I need larger hands, lol). The game that it's for seems to be pretty good, but the wheel has worked with every driving game I've tried it with so far.
Summary: An awesome controller for the sim racing fan, this steering wheel gets almost all the details right. The accuracy and control is very precise and the response on screen is instant. You can adjust the sensitivity of the response which is really helpful when you start out.
Summary: I purchased this wheel on a whim after seeing it online. It is surprisingly easy to get used to and it functions well with many different games. It seems to be made well with a decent heft weight and high quality parts.
