Excerpt: So far I have had no problems with the unit responds well with Forza 5 and Horizon 2 games. Set up unit on computer and installed up dates. Set wheel rotation to 240 and is the best setting for me. Like close ratio steering. Just wish the add on wheel had the xbox one buttons. A must to be fastened down to something heavy or it will move around on you.
Excerpt: I have had the wheel for 2+ weeks now and have put in about 8 hours but will come back to update this review should my opinion and impressions change. Any comparisons I make to another wheel will be the MS Wireless Wheel for Xbox 360 since that is the only other wheel I've owned.I picked up this wheel to replace my MS Wireless Wheel for Xbox 360 since I moved on to Xbox One (although I still have the 360).
Excerpt: The Thrustmaster TX is an excellent racing peripheral add-on for the XBONE. The force feedback adds another layer of immersion to playing Forza Motorsport. The wheel, pedals, and base are all well made. I wished the wheel was a little bigger in diameter though. Overall, this is a must-have add-on for all racing fans.
Excerpt: As an adult that purchased this wheel for rFactor2 only I can only say I am quite disappointed with this product. To start off with the wheel is made for tiny hands, eight year old size hands. With even average adult sized hands my thumbs are hitting the two top buttons on each wheel spoke while racing. An annoying thing this wheel does is every time I plug it in the driver calls it a T500RS and the wheel does not work.
Pros: Good Force Feedback
Cons: Buggy Drivers, Nonexistent Tech Support, Poorly Designed Wheel, Poor Quality Control
Excerpt: Shipping is really fast I bought this item sunday night they shipped it next monday and i received it by tuesday morning I paid duty free online so no surprise when the delivery guy came by The product was well packaged so everything was in perfect condition! Really recomment this site to order what ever you want !
Excerpt: Great feel and performance from this wheel. Really adds to the Forza MS 5 experience. No regrets purchase...would buy it again in a heartbeat. Only inconvenience was initial setup needs you to update the wheel software via a PC connected to the internet. Do wish Thrustmaster would provide a longer USB cable as I had to get an extender. Actual performance of the wheel is 5 stars.
Excerpt: I purchased this wheel a couple of weeks ago and after driving several thousand miles with it I can say it is top notch. I have had several wheels through the years and this I by far the smoothest. It is very comparable to the T500 by thrusmaster. While the TX is not as strong as the T500 I prefer the smooth ffb and rumble over brute force.
Summary: superb steering wheel with fantastic build quality. I have owned a number of wheels including the microsoft wireless wheel and a cheaper logitech one. and none of them have come anywhere near this one. The paddles are metal, which I didn't expect. and everything seems so well put together with this item. the pedals feel great and the steering feels great also.
Pros: Sturdy, Comfortable, Great value for money, Easy To Use Layout, No Force Feedback, No Rumble Pack
