In general, I like this wheel. It's pretty sensative and it's easy to store and use. However, there is a HUGE drawback... no bumper buttons! (Those are the ones on the front of the controller above the triggers.) Every driving game I have uses the bumper buttons for some important use such as drifting or car set up and most of the time you can't reconfigure things to make it work. I don't know what Microsoft was thinking, especially at this price. There is plenty of room for them. Sure, it's a lot less expensive than the other wheels that are available but without those buttons it's not really worth it. One other issue that is much less important is the lack of vibration. Often times there is a lot more feedback vibration in the menus than there is in the games. I'm surprised at how big of a difference the vibration feedback makes in my driving. If you're a casual driver that doesn't like to customize things much this wheel is okay to use. It's cheaper than the alternatives and with how small it is it's nice to store, especially if you don't have much room, but for most drivers I can't recommend this. Hopefully, Microsoft will figure out just how crucial those buttons are and will add them to the next version.
