Summary: I love it better wheel then my last one.Im here to tell every one what a nice product this is thrustmaster is the way to go the force feed back is awesome I am a very happy guy plus you can buy the two extra wheels which I did and its very easy to switch out wheel to wheel.I have it set up for my PC and works great.
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.
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....
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.
Just started using it; beats all my (high) expectations.

Summary: I had very high expectations for this product given its price; particularly when compared to the Logitech wheel. I was certainly not disappointed. I have only just started using it, but so far, this thing is fantastic. The wheel feels rich and sturdy as do the pedals. It is evident that this is high-end gear. I have not tried other racing wheels, so I really cannot compare, but I cannot imagine it really getting any better.
Summary: First let me say that I own a G25 and a G27, and no, the T500RS is not totally perfect. For sheer compatibility and reliability the prize has to go to the G25. The T500RS is not compatible with most ps3 games (you can use the wheel but not with ffb.) Also, the static paddles are bizarre and not helpful when driving fast.
Summary: Great wheel, and major improvement over the GT wheel, but it isn't plug and play. You need modem, and pc to progam the wheel. Get ready to talk to people in India. I did 24 hours of downloads from Thrustmaster, GT, and PSP before the wheel would work. Had to hire a geek.
Excerpt: I had purchased a Logitech G27 Racing Wheel and I had it for two years but really didn't have that much time using it. While racing the Logitech wheel I lost control of the wheel but all the buttons worked fine. After finding a fix online by tearing the wheel completely apart and fixing a loose screw, it would work for a half hour or so and then quit. I took it apart three times and then decided to invest my money in the T500 RS GT5 Racing wheel.
Pros: Easy Chg Steering Wheel, Easy To Use, Improved Game Play
