4 out of 5 eggsT500 goodness!

Pros: This is such a solid setup! Everything feels really beefy and well made. The FFB is incredibly strong and the "notchiness" is nominal. Worked great on my desk and works even better on my sim rig that finally came a month ago. Installation is straight forward and simple. There is a real jump in quality over the cheaper alternatives. Another thing to remember is that Thrustmasters will work on ps3 and ps4 on many games so it probably has some of the highest compatibility as well.

Cons: Not much too say here but there are 2 cons that made me take an egg off perfection but they really aren't a huge deal. First of course as you may already know is the fan... Its loud... Honestly for 500 freakin dollars they need to address this stupid fan but you can't notice it when your driving because you should have the volume cranked when racing!!! Other con is the pedals. They are nice and beefy but just doesn't have the quality you get from the wheel. Also a potentiometer for braking is no good and I would recommend a brake mod for it so it senses pressure, not distance.

Other Thoughts: All in all if you want a serious rig and don't mind spending another hundred or so bucks on a brake mod, you cannot beat the level of simulation for the price. The next step up is Fanatech and before you even get to the pedals you are going to be spending 700 dollars. Both are belt driven so you might not even feel much of a difference between the two. The Fanatech pedals are incredible though...

1 out of 5 eggssecond return :(

Pros: new egg people

Cons: second return

Other Thoughts: this was the second return hopefully the third time is the charm,

the first one had a paddle shift that was not working, the second one had a press fitting with threads for mounting that fell out when i put screw in and i was unable to even try or use before sending back.

I think I"m just having bad luck because the wheel really does seem to built tough but maybe is lacking on inspection when assembled.
the short time I used the first one was great and had no problems until going to a manual transmission were the paddle shifter was needed

crossing my fingers that the third time is the charm.
watch for a ( hopefully good ) review than

3 out of 5 eggsreturned for replacement

Pros: very sturdy
ps4 compatible
great force feed back

Cons: none to speak of

Other Thoughts: I returned this for a replacement because one of the paddle shifters wasn't working properly other than that the short time using it seemed good and I would recommend it

newegg was great to work with on replacing

3 out of 5 eggsThrustmaster T500RS

Pros: Appears to be an excellent setup.
I'm trying to decide between this and a Logitec G27. I pretty disappointed that it does not include a shifter. At the current $779.95 price, it should be a complete package. What good is a clutch pedal if you have no shifter? Sure you can add one but it's $147.00 more making the total price $926.95. plus separate shipping. Which in my opinion move it more into the high end category, which offer many more options at that price point. No I don't have one but I tried one on a friends PC

Cons: PRICE! .
Shifter should be included
Driver CD should be included.

Other Thoughts: Shifter should be included
Driver CD should be included.
For $1000. you should get your choice a current racing game with it. Guess that's why I'm not in marketing LOL

I do appreciate quality and don't mind paying for it but If I'm going to spend a Grand on a wheel I think there are better ones out there for less, so I'm continuing to look and research.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Wheel!

Pros: This wheel is ridiculous! The force feedback shakes the whole desk. Would definitely recommend to any serious sim racer.

Cons: No driver disk. Had to go online to load software. For the steep price it should come with a disk!

5 out of 5 eggsT500rs

Pros: Very solid. Paddle shifters are nice.

Feels much more realistic than G25. Pedals are very heavy and feel very nice. I got this rather than modify the G25 in any way.

Could have bought a G27 but the T500rs is definitely a step up.

Cons: Price is a little high. $500 would be better. G27's are much more affordable.
