Oh yeah, one more thing. The wheel comes with an installation disk, but it was not needed. The updates are included with the 360 update (one of them, not sure which updated included it, but its there), so the disk isn't needed.
The only issue I have is that it disconnects from Xbox every 15 minutes or so on some days. When it disconnects then you have to remove the batteries, restart it and wait until it connects again. It happens only some days and I didn't find the cause of this. Freshness of the batteries, other devices turned on, humidity, games being played - nothing seems to make any difference. It just happens some days and doesn't others. I found numerous reports of other people with the same problem on the Internet but no solution.
The response time of the wheel is great. I was worried that it will lag a little bit but the response is instant. Immediately when you turn the wheel, the game responds.
I played several games with this wheel, mostly Dirt 3 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. I tried some other games as well - the newer ones work great, the older ones (e.g. Harms Way) usually don't - the game only reacts when the wheel is fully turned which is useless.
The experience with this wheel depends on the game. There's not much difference with arcade games where it doesn't matter a lot how much you turn the wheel. But I had a great experience with Dirt 3 where it makes huge difference if you turn the wheel only a little or a lot. I wasn't able to make slight turns with the normal Xbox controller and it's very natural with this wheel. Also the throttles are much more sensitive on this wheel than on the normal controller. As a result, I enjoyed the game much more. With the normal controller, I was changing throttle and direction from 0% to 100% several times a second. With the wheel, I can e.g. maintain a 40% position on the wheel and just slightly change the throttle or the break.
The wheel is missing some buttons - LB, RB and right stick. It's usually not a big deal with most games as you can map the actions to other buttons. It is a problem in some non-game actions, e.g. replay. In Dirt 3, you can change the camera in replay only by LB and RB and there's no way how to map it to anything else. It means that you couldn't change the camera at all. Most of the times, it's not a big deal though.
Overall, this wheel is great, especially for the price. If it wouldn't be for the intermittent disconnects I would give it 5+ stars.
I first bought the XBOX 360 Wireless Game Controller *FOR THE PC*. I read there are two different versions, so I was sure to get one that said "FOR PC*. It came with a USB Dongle to receive the wireless signals. I like the controller but saw some steering wheels for sale and thought I'd like to try one for Dirt 3.
You see the Hydraulic steering systems? Pretty awesome, but for THAT price, I can buy TWO REAL cars. I also don't want to sink the money into the steering wheel systems in the $250.00 range. That's still way too high right now, Maybe later. Plus, with the whole wheel/pedal set-up, I think I'd be spending too much time in an uncomfortable position, or fighting to get the wheel and pedals in the right spot. SO, I decided to try this. I had read around how this did work with PC's, but I thought it would also have come with a wireless Dongle. It did not.
Once I got it, I had to pop the batteries out of the other controller and then sync this up with the Dongle I got with the handheld controller.
The first race I played with it, I hated it. First thought was, "I want to send it back". As I played more runs with it though, I got more use to it. It actually seemed more responsive in other races, so I don't know if its accuracy is different in different races, but it sure seemed that way to me.
It's not great, but it's not so bad either. It seems to need close to a 90% turn to affect it most times, and in some races, it seemed like there was a lag in the response. Other races in the same game it seemed pretty accurate. I wish the program actually had some sort of calibration built in to set where the max left, max right and center were, so you could control how tight the steering was. I am new to this, so maybe some have this feature?
More like steering than controller
Works with Wireless XBOX 360 Controller for PC's Dongle
Weighted and comfortable.
Doesn't come with Wireless USB Dongle for PC
Some response lag in certain Races
No method of calibration for start and end of steering wheel turn.
Not easy to shut off controller and turn Wheel on, then back again.
Wish they had made a power switch and the ability to remember the channel, so I could switch easier and not have to re-sync them up.
For the price, it's OK though. I may like it more as I use it more.
