The one qualm is you really need to make sure you've got the suction cups stuck down as tight as they will go. I've heard complaints that the steering and braking (the unit comes with a separate pedal for that by the way, along with an accelerator pedal) can be a little sensitive but that's essentially due to the game-play designs of the various games which are compatible with this. They are trying to accurately replicate high-speed car handling and driving conditions, hence it will require skill to master your driving techniques. Overall, I have no major complaints and couldn't be happier with owning this product. I can honestly say I do not feel the need to upgrade to a higher-priced racing wheel. Probably only the most hardened racing game enthusiast would pass on this product in favor of one that costs twice as much.
I bought it for a couple things. At the time I never had tried a gaming wheel before and i wanted to know what a wheel feels like for gaming, so i was looking for something not to expensive in case it wasn't all that.
Another reason why I got it is because it was licenced by Sony and I trusted it was going to work well with GT5, I had been playing with my regular control and I wanted to amp up my experience since the game is realistic on its own.
I was very skeptical and with very low expectations because before buying anything I look for video reviews on YouTube, I saw a guy reviewing it with GT5 and I noticed that when the guy on the game moved the arms, it was delayed from when the actual player moved the wheel.
This was going to really dissapoint me because you want the wheel to move at the same time as the graphs do, but even then I still wanted to have it, the price felt right and I went ahead and get it.
The delivery was very fast and better than I thought, I opened it immediately as I was very excited waiting for it. I was surprised that the quality of the material of the wheel was very good. The size was small, but I was expecting worse, it actually came a lot better than I thought. It's a very good looking wheel, it even has the PlayStation logo on it making it look official..Read more ›
a.) it was cheap
b.) being in the end of ps3 era I didn't want to spend 250+ on an obsolete wheel and thought this would hold me over until a nice next-gen ps3/ps4 compatible wheel is released
However I was very wrong, playing this wheel only made me want to get a nicer wheel EVEN MORE, which is what I'll probably do after I finish this review. (save the trouble and just get a g27)
Now, here is a list of things I dislike about the wheel:
1.) The pedals are automatically mapped as gas being X, and brake being Square (however this won't work with games that do not recognize X and square as analog, games such as F1 2013 only recognize R2 and L2 as analog). I have to manually re-map the pedals to R2 and L2 every time I turn the wheel on, because it resets back to default when its turned off. In fact, this wheel isn't even recognized as a wheel by any game. Therefore you cannot adjust any "wheel settings". It's only recognized as a ps3 controller and you will only be allowed default settings.
2.) There is a massive steering deadzone
3.) The wheel only turns about 90 degrees each way. (this is fine for f1 2013, kinda sucks for gran turismo)
4.) The gas pedal started creaking after the second use, doesn't affect gameplay but the sound is annoying
5.) The suction cups are useless, any hard steering will make the base come off whatever it's attached to. I ghetto rigged it down with luggage straps and tie downs and it still slides around and occasionally pops off. (Also did not come with the strap to play it on your lap but that would probably feel even worse)
6.) no force feedback
7.) the wheel is pretty small in my hands
That's pretty much it. Don't go cheap like I did, you'll regret it! Instead of getting a g27 for $240, I am now down $60 for this crap wheel, in addition to what I'll have to spend on the g27.
After several races, I was able to settle in and learn the sensitivity. The wheel does have turn limits unlike the Logitech wheel I had used before so that took a bit to get used to. Obviously if you are racing online all the time and want a more accurate representation of driving, you would have to spend more for a different wheel. However, this alternative is perfect for people like me.
It doesn't require any type of permanent placement (screws, nails etc...) as it has suction cups that hold very well to the wooden TV stand I had it on. the paddle shifters are nice and match a lot of cars these days. The pedals hold well to the carpet. With all of this, I am very happy that I got this controller!

The gas/brake pedal would only change the view of the car. The paddle shifters had to be used for accelerating and braking. We returned it.Published 1 month ago by Cassidy
