  • Summary: I have owned this product for almost 3 months. After about 2 months, the power started to shut down. I contacted the company and they informed me it was the main board in the wheel base. It is obvious they know there is defective parts on the main board because they knew what the problem was and this same problem has been reported by other customers on Amazon as well as other reports of the same issue on forums.

High Hopes but so far not really living up to the hype

  • Summary: I will revise this review as I see fit. It is 25APR14 and I am writing the initial assessment right now. Background: I've own a G25 for 7 years now and I play Sims on and off during that time frame. Recently I've got back into sim racing playing primarily Gran Prix Legends (GPL) and Live for Speed (LFS). G25 was getting dated and I felt like I should upgrade.

Lasted Only 2 Days

  • Summary: The wheel worked really great while it did. The feel and force feedback was realistic and accurate. But after a couple hours the second morning of racing, the pedals were still responsive, but the steering quit. The smell of hot, burnt electronics emitted from the vents on top of the case, and I realized I never heard the cooling fan come on (which was kinda loud when it had the day before). I think the fan failed and allowed the unit to over-heat.

  • Summary: This is an absolutely astounding product. The force feedback and wheel weight are great. I use this wheel to play, almost exclusive Formula 1 2013. My only problem with the product is that (and this seems to be a problem playing F1) that the shifter paddles are affixed to the base of the wheel and don't move with the wheel. As such I believe I will need to purchase the Ferarri Formula 1 steering wheel add on and it will be perfect.

Great Toy lol

  • Summary: Moved from the G27 to the t500 and you can tell a big difference! I have had no problems with this wheel and it's been a ton of fun, I would suggest anyone who is serious about sim racing to get this wheel if they have the funds! This wheel should be priced at $300 tho....
