The device drivers for this product did not work on my W98 - HP Pavillion, which is a very standard configuration. The product documentation does not include an 800 line for customer support. Their toll customer support number was closed for the entire holiday break - this really was impressive. Basically this product was a very big disappointment. It may look really nice but there is no excuse for the product not working RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.

I have a Playstation 1 console, I previously owned a MAD CATZ 1 Steering (The old grey 1998 Model) which I used to play Gran Turismo 1 which was a popular game at that time. I later gave it away (stupid, I know). I wanted to relive the full fun of this driving game once again. So, I purchased the Interact V3fx Steering Wheel which is designed to work with PS1 And PS2. Unfortunately, after many trial and errors, I realized that the V3fx has poor control and sensitivity despite its own adjustment controls (30 - 150 Degrees angle sensitivity). I even tried using the GT setup menu which indicated that everything was set just fine. When I played the game...it took only a small turn of the wheel to cause the car to go from one side of the track to the other and run into walls hence the car was difficult to control. I think that this steering wheel's design is geared more towards Playstation 2 and Gran Turismo 4 rather than the previous Playstation.

As noted by another reviewer, I also experienced problems with the V3 and my HP Pavilion. This did not make me as angry as the fact that I have e-mailed Interact twice without receiving any kind of response. I strongly suggest that anyone considering buying this product should look elsewhere. There are many other racing wheels that provide top quality and have customer support that actually exists.

The pedal was designed by an idiot but to get this thing working in XP:

1. CLick Start - SETTINGS - CONTROL PANEL.

2. In the Control Panel, double click on the "Game Controllers"

3. Once in the Game Controller Window, first make sure that the

Controller/Status box is empty. **(If it is not empty, click the "REMOVE"

button to clear all its contents)**

4. Click "ADD" and select "2-Axis 4-Button" and then click "OK"

5. Once the status on the controller reads "OK", click on the "PROPERTIES"

button.

6. Select the "SETTINGS" Tab and then click the "CALIBRATE" button.

7. Follow the on screen instructions to calibrate your joystick.

8. Now, click the "TEST" tab.

9. On the Test Screen you can check to make sure that your controller is

functioning properly.

10. Now click the "APPLY" button to save your changes and then click "OK" to

exit.

You have officially configured your V3 SV-280 Steering Wheel for use in

Windows XP!

I was shocked when I found people were still purchasing a product produced in 1997 and expected it to work on newer equipment.
1. This item is almost 20 years old, all you'll get is used since the company ceased operations in the early 2000's.
2. It connects to the PC with a 15 pin joystick port, most PC's built in the last 10 years do not have these.
3. It was rudimentary when it was new, ridiculous now.
4. There are much better wheels, with Force Feedback, that work with new PC's and games for the same price.
I purchased one of these new in late 1997 as they were cheap and plentiful ($50 in 1997) and it was decent for the price. I quickly purchased the "Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel Gameport" in early 1998 and then the first Logitech MOMO's which also use the outdated "joystick port".
Do yourself a favor and get the USB version of "Logitech MOMO Force" locally for cheaper than this, or pony up the $$'s for a Logitech G25 or G27 series wheel.

I have owned this wheel for 8 or 9 years, still works, but when I bought it, it was the best deal for the money, comparing $40 to then $90 and up, but today, the best buy on the market has to be Logitech GP force feedback, for $69 and less.
Still for youngsters, the V3 works great, and as long as you don't try to use it as a paper weight, or stand on it it should last as mine has, and we have used it "a bunch"

Trust me, you don't want this wheel. I have one. It's inoperable. Yeah, for a little while, it worked great. A little while meaning about 2 weeks. So far, I've had to take mine back for a replacement twice. The manager at the store I purchased it from told me he wouldn't be able to replace it for me again, and that I would have to deal with the manufacturer after this. They also said that every one of the units they sold, had come back. The thing is a piece of junk. Have no doubts about it, the V3 Wheel WILL BREAK. First of all, my unit was used by adults ONLY. It's not like I had a bunch of little kids messing with it. The first one I had broke at the stopping point at the far feft and right sides, so that the wheel turned all the way around. Needless to say, it was completely useless and the moment that happened. The second one I had must've had a bad solder connection somewhere. The user controlled item, (car, plane...whatever) would for no apparent reason, and without warning, turn sharply one way or the other. Even with the wheel centered, and no one touching it. The third and final unit,(the one I now have)has just recently become useless as well as the first two. The pedals do not work any more. In testing and calibrating, and finally, reinstalling the drivers for it, I've found that the pedals are sending no signal. The cables are fine...the connections are fine...all is well except for these stupid pedals(which are WAY too close together, anyway. Wait til you have to use both the brake and gas when you can't just go full throttle. You'll be hitting both of the pedals at the same time. I promise. Plus the pedal box slides all over the place.) Bottom line: It's all plastic, and unless you'll only be using it about once a month, you better count on replacing it like underwear and socks... Alan and Monica
