Summary: Really good product, well made. Could have been made more realistic though. Had to make at least 4 modifications to make this feel closer to the real thing. If you rethread and shorten the stick shaft, tighten the action between the gears, put a heavier gear knob on, make or buy a modified plate with a better design, you should be onto about the best you can get gaming wise. This price though, you shouldn't have to do all that.
Summary: Fantastic shifter, extremely well made. Clamps securely to just about anything. Action is smooth with a little snap at the end so it feels like something has engaged. Simple to change to quick shift/sequential mode and the configuration software allows you to adjust sensitivity or remove gears completely. Only possible downside is that the throw from one gear to the next is quite long, but I like it.
Summary: The shifter is a real blast when used with Forza 5 or Horizens 2. Adds to the realism and fun, but also makes it much harder! The shifter is good quality and easy to setup. Miss shifting is easy though, especially from 4 going to 5. Just have to get the T3PA Pedals now to complete the setup.
Good purchase, adds to the feeling of driving a real car

Summary: I love the quietness of the shifter, but I went astep further and placed some neoprene foam rubber material in between the H-gates which made it near silent. In comparison to the Fanatec Clubsport shifter which clicks upon each gear change and has less of a feeling of an H-pattern because of it's smaller range of movement between gears, I was satisfied with my choice of purchase.
Summary: The product is really good and I recommend it. I'll give the reasons for 3 stars first since the (many) pros of this product are mentioned in other reviews. - The shaft is too long. If you want to just play around with a simcade game it's probably fine. But if you're after performance, of if you want to simulate sports cars, it feels quite a bit off. You can get an aftermarket shaft for ~15 to 20 quid. - The knob is non-standard.
