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

Ebolamonkey, Amazon

  • 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.

Brilliant

  • 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....

Not worth the money.

Alex D. Katz "Picture Perfect", Amazon

  • Summary: IMO there are just too many options for this price to want to deal with a company from France where if something goes wrong (and if like mine, it will) you will be waiting for 2 weeks just to communicate with them through email. There customer support is unacceptable and by the time you finally get the problem sorted out, your probably going to be purchasing a different one because you just dont want to wait to play your new game/console.

GT5 IS WEAK!

kawanna, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: the wheel is well made and super smooth. choose your game wisely, because all games will not allow you to feel the full strength of the wheel. GT5 will not allow you to feel the full potential of this wheel. I think you would have to get a online game like "Rfactor", " I Racing" , I wish GT6 will have the same program as those, if not the wheel will feel a little stronger than a G27.
