I have owned 3 different racing wheels, but this one out does them all! I love racing F-1 with this wheel on my PS3. Very good wheel..
The only way to have a more realistic driving experience with your PS3 and Grand Turismo 5: Prologue, is to buy a race car and actually drive it. This is as real as a simulator gets.
This is the first wheel I've had since the 90's and I could never get one to work correctly back then. This wheel has exceeded my expectations. I race with Gran Turismo 5 on my PS3 and DiRT3 on my desktop computer and it works great on both. It clamps down on my desk very tight and does not work loose from vibration from the force feedback. The pedals have tension, the brake pedal is tighter than the throttle so I race without shoes on so I can feel the throttle tension better. I have carpeted floors and the grip on the base of the pedals works great, has never slipped while racing. I use manual transmission for both games metioned above and the sequential shifter works just fine too. Besides those two games I have used it with Nascar The Game 2011 on PS3, and on my computer, GRID, Euro Truck Simulator 2, and Nascar 2003.
Buy it. The feedback is amazing,
Feels like the real thing, excellent value. But don’t even think about buying this product unless you buy a stand to hold the steering wheel in place, to go along with it! I picked up a stand for $128.00 + shipping from Amazon.
You must have the proper set up to use this wheel. It must be mounted to a very firm and stable surface. Be sure to keep thumbs clear when this wheel recalibrates. It is almost to hard to steer, seems like work instead of fun. I took this wheel back and bought the Thrust master Ferrari GT wheel and I love it, much easier to steer and more control.
Steering wheel was too shakey and too stiff. Not so easy to handle wheel while shifting at the same time.
Did not realize product had long wires that had to connect to PS3 in order to work. Thought product was wireless. Kids and dog tangled in wires continuously. Returned product and sent for wireless steering wheel.
I had a previous Logitech steering wheel, and this one is just as good. I like how this one has the PS button since this one was made specifically for the PS3. I would have liked a better explanation of the new controls, the red thumb wheel and the +/- buttons on the lower part of the hub. I am sure these have a use in Gran Turismo 5, but they have a cryptic description in the controls settings menu. Force feedback is good so it does feel like steering a real car. If you try playing any Gran Turismo game without this wheel, or another one of the supported models, you really are missing out.
Spouse used to use the steering wheel but now prefers the controller, even after building a nice stand for the wheel. Overall the Logitech steering wheel met expectations but was a passing phase.
