Couldn't be happier

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: 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.
Summary: I bought this wheel mainly because I wanted my buddy to be able to race with me. He did not have a wheel, so I sold him the one I had and bought this one. Let me tell ya, very good investment. Not to knock Logitecs Wingman Formula Force that I had, but this wheel accells that one by leaps and bounds. It is more precise in control and in the FF mechinisum. I have found only one downfall.
Summary: I am on XP and bought the game specifially to play Rallisport Challenge and it works perfect. I also played EA F1 2000 and 2002, it works flawless. I have not had any luck geting the wheel to work with NASCAR 4 and I been trying for a week. On the internet I found users who have it working on Window98 or ME. I am not a pc steering wheel expert. I have only used this one wheel since I bought it and may be missing or doing something wrong.
Summary: I have had this wheel for over 2 years, and it has been terriffic. It has gone from windows 98 to XP and is just as compatible as ever. It gets used and abused playing all types of games from the dirt track racing series, to formula 1, to nascar 4. It just keeps delievering the realism. I paid 150 bucks for mine, and would pay it again, but now the price has dropped.The forces are as real as it gets, buy this wheel now, you won't be dissapointed.
Summary: This wheel is great and has sold upwards of $... in the past. With the rebate, this becomes a very affordable force-feedback wheel without sacrificing any quality. The force feedback really adds to the quality of the game play so pony up the extra few dollars and get this one as opposed to a non-force-feedback or a cheaper quality force-feedback one.
