Pros: -A absolute blast when you get it set up and get good at using it.
-Setting up for PC use was easy, for one of my computers. (will explain later)
-Makes any racing game infinitely more entertaining.
-The perfect wheel for the price. IE no clutch pedal or gear shift (although is compatible with several other thurstmaster options if you want to get more serious later down), but the perfect entry point for new racing sim players.
Cons: -For my friend's computer it would keep hitching in game. Turns out it was windows shutting off the signal to it as a power saving "feature". After some google searching, changing windows settings, and changing it to a USB 2.0 port instead of a 3.0, it worked like a dream.
Overall Review: -Needs a solid desk to attach with a straight edge. Won't work on the inside corner of my L-shaped desk
-Requires some configuration in games to feel perfect, but that's more up the game and your preference.
-Makes playing racing games with a controller impossible because you never want to go back!
Pros: I don't know where to begin. First off shout out to newegg for selling it cheaper then almost anywhere, shout out again for partnering with quad pay to help me build my dream rig. Ok so the product. The wheel base actually feels built extremely well! The wheel base is solid silent and precise. The wheel that comes with it is amazing. Feels and looks really good. I wear gloves just out of recommendation to not damage the alcantara on the wheel. Now the pedals with mod work great for me. Took some getting used too, I can agree they are the weak point of the bundle. However when you look at the servo and the wheel I would have gladly paid the same price for just that. So like one review said, it feels like thrustmaster just threw a set of pedals to kinda help you out. All in all I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. Quadpay also made it possible with 4 payments. They didn't charge me anything extra but I think 25 dollar down payment. Super reasonable. I think once i get my thrustmaster load cells this will be my for ever set up. Now I want to say this, I wanted a dd wheel, this is so strong it has cooled that want for me. It has enough force that I have been caught off guard and hurt myself slightly with it. It does have alot off ffb. I say some where in the 5 to 6 range. Great buy!!!
Sparco wheel!! A+++
Semi quick release
Pedals are a nice touch.
Cons: Truly none. Like I said if you want to complain your only complaint will be the pedals, which are truly not bad at all.
Overall Review: I would recommend this product
I would definitely purchase it again and will be for my son whom also sim races
If I could change anything I would throw the load cell pedals in there. Other then that great job thrustmaster
Pros: The best wheel l ever had . You feel that you are racing a real car . Quality is great . I had it on my new Forza playseat that I purchased from Holland (EU) and had it in Three days . I feel like I want to play for ever .
Cons: The only disappointment is the 3 pedals I did not like them at all . I would have paid extra money and got the top of the line pedals . Rather than the pedals all is great
Overall Review: Hope Thrustmaster will come up with better pedal system that looks and feels like real pedals of a racing car
Pros: I've tried a lot of wheels over the years: G25, G27, Fanatec turbo S, Fanatec CSR, Thrustmaster t500, Loitech Driving Force, Microsoft 360 wheel. This wheel feels much better than the old 360 wheels that Fanatec made in my opinion. I love the feel of the force feedback. The guy in the other review either had his low or did not update the firmware to v45. This wheel with Forza 5 is amazing. The G27 used to be my favorite racing wheel but the Thurstmaster TX dethroned it.
Cons: The pedals aren't the greatest (i knew that before buying) but they are making the T3PA add-on with clutch as well as the 6 speed slotted shifter. Those accessories will make the wheel even better.
Overall Review: A little pricey. My Fanatec Turbo S had a part go out on it and the Fanatec support was a nightmare. Had to make videos to show what was wrong. Their located in Germany so they had to mail me the part which I then had to install myself. Not the best support. I have ease of mind now if something does wrong with this wheel because Thrustmaster is a well known trusted brand.
Overall Review: had the PS4 version for almost 2 years and still loved it, so when I bought a Xbox didn't even look at others and ordered this
Pros: - Best bang for your buck with FFB wheels
- Does everything you need
Cons: - Initial set up only had it working with Forza 7 (an Xbox on PC game). Had to reinstall, after beginning to question compatibility.
Overall Review: - Would recommend, however if you have a PS4, you may as well get the PS4 variant even if you plan on using it exclusively for PC. That's my only regret, since this wheel is perfect for me.
Pros: This wheel makes Forza 5 so much fun to drive. Very realistic feed back of the driving experience. Beats the MS 360 wheel in Forza 4 by a million!
Cons: Had issue with first unit, but the Thrustmaster tech support was fantastic! They are behind the product 100%. Nothing is perfect, and I just happened to get a bad unit. Definitely worth the wait!
Overall Review: I can't wait to get home from work and use this wheel in Forza 5.
I had a 5 screen setup with Forza 3-5 but took it all down when
Pros: Very nice, strong FFB (after adjusting the settings)
All the buttons you need, and then some
Cons: Default settings have major dead zones, making it feel like a really old car's power steering, low on fluid.
Default settings also made weird grinding noises in tight left turns (maybe they would have in right turns too, but I don't think I ever hit any.)
Extremely stinky plastic and rubber. My eyes and nose are not amused.
The ability to switch between 270 and 900 degrees is not there yet, but promised for a future update. Next update is scheduled for mid-December.
The mounting holes are not in good positions for my Playseat. There's going to be a half inch gap between the edge of the base that should be sitting against the "table" and said "table", and the pedal set is going to be way higher than it should be, and if I want to rest my heels on something other than thin air, I'll have to come up with something to put there.
I will still have to try to mount the stuff, as the pedal set keeps moving, and the base doesn't have much of a grip either, hitting it a bit when climbing in or out of the seat will make it crooked.
Hate the thick soft rubber on the wheel. The leather on the GT 27 is so much nicer.
The manual doesn't describe all buttons, but it turns out that the ones it doesn't describe, don't have any functionality yet (promised in future update.)
Overall Review: The pedals are OK for me, better than some I've used in the past, but no where close to the GT 27 pedal set.
First thing you'll want to do when you get it, is to go into the advanced settings on Forza 5 and remove all the dead zones (6 settings.)
And, if you don't like how strong the FFB is, you may want to dial that down too, while you're at it.
