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.
Summary: This wheel is an amazing wheel and helped my times significantly.... The feedback you receive from it during a race is second to none. If you pony up the extra money for this wheel, you will not regret it.... I love it 100%...
Summary: This wheel feels so much more realistic than my previous Fanatec. The feedback is more detailed, stronger and natural. Once you try this the first reaction will be "wow, this actually feels like driving a car". You actually feel the inertia, weight and chassis behavior. A certain popular sim reviewer on youtube has said this reminded him of ECCI wheels.
