Review title of KwiqNissAbsolutely Amazing

I was originally concerned about too much plastic in this thing, but truthfully, it's really heavy and feels very sturdy. The wheel itself feels very realistic, and is very neat to hold. After getting it setup, I can say my concerns have been replaced with a renewed addiction to more Forza. This thing is incredible after firmware update. Running default embedded settings (max force feedback = 75%) and have Forza 5 set to 100% force feedback and 90% rumble, with a 1% deadzone. Depending on the car I'm in, I've adjusted rotation anywhere from 270* to 900*. Being able to change wheel rotation on the fly, without going into any menu, is a nice touch, and I'm interested to see what they do with some of the other buttons, like Manettino, after a few updates. The force feedback is incredible. I can tell when I'm right on the edge of a car's limitations, and when I've gone just passed it, and the wheels are starting to hop a little. I can tell when I'm drafting somebody. There is appropriate pull when doing things like running off into grass, or colliding into another car (yes, I know the other guy is entirely to blame). The wheel can get very tight when force feedback is strong, and it's awesome to feel this much resistance. Although, never let the wheel loose, keep a tight grip, especially when rewinding. The rumble on brick yards and other more subtle scenarios adds a very nice touch. I've mounted it to a wheel pro stand, and it's very sturdy. I can adjust this quickly to work for me, my wife, and my five yr. old daughter. With different settings for each profile in Forza, this works well for each of us. Also, the 3 pedal set comes out this month (may, 2014) which should only make this thing better (for everyone except my 5 yr old probably). I'm also ready to try the F1 wheel and look forward to the 8spd. H gate shifter.

Review title of vxLORD VADERxvTX=better feel+consistant lap times.

I started with the Thrustmaster 458 Ferarri Race wheel(bungie chord centering system) then it wasnt enough,then bought the Thrustmaster TMX Force Feed Back wheel then it wasnt enough, finally bought this wheel. It exceeded my expectations in every aspect. This wheel is amazing. I wouldve saved alot of money if I wouldn't have tried to be cheap about it on the start. If you're reading this just buy it.

Review title of VIP3RC3LLLove this steering wheel exactly what Forza Needs

Love this. it works amazingly and despite what other people say. It works exactly how it is supposed to work. It says it comes with paddle shifters and you can clearly tell there is no clutch. Don't review or buy if you don't read what it is about first. The best steering wheel you can get hands down!

Review title of potatoGreat performance

Works great with forza and the force feedback makes the game more realistic. It would be better if you did not have to pay so much for the add-ons and after a while the rubber grip started peeling off. Overall its a very good wheel despite some minor flaws

Review title of DavuduMissing Features for the $

Way too expensive to be missing an H-shifter and clutch. I don't care that the wheel is modelling a Ferrari that uses paddle shifters, nobody buys a steering wheel to simulate 1 vehicle... Forza has cars that do not use paddles...

Review title of BillyP7718Very Good Wheel

I was pretty impressed with this wheel. The build quality, fit and finish, and design are surprisingly good for a $400 toy. The forced feedback is excellent and about as true as you are going to get on a game console. Find it odd that folks complain about not having a gear shifter when most cars in the game (and real race cars) are using paddle shifters.
