Summary: I picked this wheel up at a thrift store for around 20 bucks. I'd been thinking about getting a wheel anyway, so I figured "hey, force feedback, cool! Hope it works," and sure enough, it works beautifully. This wheel has to be around 10 years old, but it still works like brand new. Pedals are nice and responsive, the feedback is excellent, and the fact that it works on everything I've tried so far makes me super happy.
Summary: let me just say first off that i have not used any of the competing wheels, so i'm not speaking comparatively here. i have owned this wheel for a long time now and it has seen a ton of use. i use it for F1 Challenge, and i've probably logged something like 100 hours of use on it. if you're serious about your steering wheel, and you probably are if you're spending $100 on it, then don't get this one.
Summary: The value you get from this product will depend upon your dedication to race gaming. I bought it for my sons who would be using the machine for an hour or two a day. Whilst initial enthusiasm was expressed by all the reality is that the computer is still used as much as it was, but this wheel has not been out of the closet since April.
Summary: It's a good wheel. But it has a lot of Dead Zone in it. Nascar 2003 Season is the worst dead zone. You can tweak it out so it dosent have as much. But for Dirt Track Racing, Rally sport challenge and other off road or on road games it is a great wheel but it dose crunch some times. sounds like somthing in it. ever since I bought it it has done that but works. The look is awesome better then the picture. but I cant complain I bought it from theese guys for 60.00 on sale.
Summary: I was playing Nascar 2003 with the keyboard (not recommended). I have nothing but Kuddos for this steering wheel. I've driven a Busch car at the Richard Petty school; The force feedback on this wheel is comparable.
Summary: Trust me, you won't be disappointed by this wheel. Cheaper steering wheels are flimsy and don't work as well... this wheel is very solid, works perfectly, and the force feedback is extremely well done. Nothing cheaper is worth the money, and nothing in the same price range is as good as the Microsoft Force Feedback Wheel. Unless you're gonna go nuts and spend [a lot] on one of the super high quality wheels, there's no reason to get any one other than this wheel.
