4.0 out of 5 stars Economical wheel to make driving games more fun July 16 2002
By sonytoao - Published on Amazon.com
For the price, this wheel is an easy way to make driving games more fun. It has fairly good response but don't expect it to operate like a real automobile. Neither the wheel or peddles (gas/break) are as remotely sensitive as a real car but this is after all, just a gaming device and it gets the job done. The software loads easily and works on Windows XP right off the CD. It is also recognized by older software versions like Need For Speed II.
The one caveat is that you should have a flat, fairly smooth surface on which to mount the wheel and you should fasten it on tightly because if you don't, the wheel easily dislodges during the middle of the game and ruins your run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the money! Nov. 5 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This product is awsome! You get the most for your hard-earned money! If your getting a racing wheel and pedals, this one beets them all. It is also better to get a used because it's ...cheaper, and the used are still in working condition or better. I recomend games like: driver, nascar 2000,or Need for Speed:3 hot pursuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect add-on to a driving/racing game March 13 2005
By TheGrindre - Published on Amazon.com
Ok, everybody, this is not the force feed back wheel. (.....). This is your down to earth 10" racing wheel with gas/brake pedals that will out do any keyboard control you could ever use. It's a great computer steering wheel that works as it should. It's accurate, simple to set up, and FUN to use. The price is perfect, too.

(....) it has worked flawlessly for me well over a year and is still working perfectly, (Thought I would update this to say that it is now over 4 years old and still going strong). I truly don't believe you could find a better wheel for the price.

It has 4 programmable buttons and 2 paddles, (programmable shifters). The clamping down feature is ideal and doesn't get your legs caught up. The pedals are heavy aluminum and don't move around too much unless you just get caught up in a heated race, LOL. (Gosh, it's made by Logitech! What more could you want?)

I never installed the software, I just plugged it in, (USB), and started driving with no problems. I am also using Windows Home and Professional on two separate PCs.

If you're looking for a wheel, and on a budget, bingo, you found one here.

4.0 out of 5 stars It take a little getting used to..... April 19 2004
By Kenwyn Morris - Published on Amazon.com

Okay, so the pedals don't feel like real automobile pedals. It's a gaming device, people! I'm looking for realism plus fun, and that's what I got. True, it does take a considerable amount of practice to get used to it. Especially if, like me, you've spent years mashing keyboard buttons to play driving games. I'ts a LOT harder using the wheel and pedals, but a heck of a lot more fun! To answer Pedro Couto e Santo's question in his earlier review: 'So... what's the point to buying a steering wheel and pedals if you can actually play driving games better on your keyboard?'. The answer is you can't play driving games with the wheel and pedals the same way you play with the keyboard. You have to re-learn everything. Have fun with your re-education!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the money Oct. 25 2006
By Prof100 - Published on Amazon.com
I don't think this particular product is sold new anymore. I use it with GT Legends race simulator game. I think I paid 30 bucks for it two to three years ago. The steering wheel is pretty good and it's fairly repeatable on returning to center. There are four buttons on the wheel you program. Two are used for upshifting and downshifting. XP recognizes the device so you really don't need the software to be installed. Its clamping is not well suited for my particular computer setup but it's workable. If you have regular flat table it should work well for you. You may want to put some soft and sticky material where it grabs the bottom of the table. Hard plastic on a formica surface can slip.

I have had other gaming wheels and pedals and this is the best of the low cost variety.

INSTALLATION TIP;

The default setting ties the brake to gas. You only get to use one at a time. You want them split so you can modulate the brake and gas separately. You have to go into control panel in Windows and make the change in the advanced section of the gaming controllers. The split is better but it's not perfect, but it is better.

PEDALS

The pedals are marginal at best. They slide all over the floor. I use a drawer liner piece of material to help with that situation. I think I will have to mount these to a piece of MDF big enough to allow the computer chair to sit on the piece of MDF with my chair. It is kind of hard to race a simulated race car lap after lap when the pedals are moving all over the floor. It spoils the fun pretty quickly.

The gas pedal is workable with linear modulation. The brakes, however, act more like a on-off switch. I have had to step down the level of difficulty in the racing program to pick up the anti-locking braking feature and stability control feature to keep from spinning out. The GT Legends program let's you replay any race or a hot lap. When you watch the replays you often see two black skid marks during a hard, but typical, braking maneuver.

These simulation games are unbelievably realistic. I know because I race a full size 650 hp car in SCCA events. To go fast you have to be able to threshold brake. With these pedal it's all but impossible to do so. I now understand why regular devotees of racing simulators pay $300 for a set of good pedals. It's the brake modulation that makes it worthwhile.

Like any new controller you have to learn how to use it to get the most out of it. The steering wheel is well sized for the typical race car application. The sensitivity can be adjusted in the GT Legends program.
