    Great wheel for the racer at home

    A few years ago when racing wheels started to become popular, I tried a few out. None felt very realistic at all and I took them back. Now here we are several years later and I find this Thrustmaster at Best Buy on sale. I say to myself, nah, forget it, it will never measure up just like all the other wheels I have tried. Well the wheel was so cheap that I had to give it another go, but how good could this wheel be at this price point. Well long story short, the Thrustmaster works awesome and brings excitement to my racing games that you just cannot get with the handheld controls. The pedals are lacking in feel and I would buy the upgraded versions but the wheel itself is exactly what you want. It has accuracy, and feel. If your wanting a whole racing sim set up I would go a different direction, but if you work everyday and want to come home to run some sim laps then this is the wheel for you. It gets the job done. I have not had any mechanical issues with the wheel yet but I DID buy the extended warranty just in case. We will see how it holds up as it gets plenty of use in our house.

    Perfect for casual racing

    Long review made short: This wheel is perfect for anyone looking to step into the racing wheel world. It has force feedback, and a passable pedal set. That being said, I do have a few complaints. The wheel doesn't always center properly, the pedals don't stay flat in the ground in a temporary set up, and most annoyingly, some buttons are positioned close to the wheel rim for accessibility, but make a little too close, as sometimes I unintentionally hit buttons trying to turn the wheel. That being said, I do have larger hands, so that may not be a problem for most. All in all, a great, cheaper way to get into the racing wheel world, without sacrificing too much.

    Excellent Force Feedback Wheel for Beginner

    This is my 2nd ThrustMaster wheel, first with force feedback. It is awesome. Please remember that when you start using a wheel, you will not be great. It will be frustrating and it will take time to get better. The only trouble I had with mine was the pedals were not recognized at first. Fortunately, I had my old set of pedals to plug in and test. Nothing was wrong. Must have been a simple reset that was needed. I plugged the pedals in that came with it after that and it has worked ever since.

    It is overall a great simulation racing wheel! But i have to emphasize how great having a force feedback is... it is the same in real life, when you drive fast the steering wheel becomes stiff. But, you'll notice the crankyness whenever you move the wheel. I also love how cheap it is compared to other ones and the addition of the pedal is a huge plus!

    The wheel itself is great. Good feedback and metal shifters. The problem comes with the pedals. Throttle spring broke in 28 days out of BB warranty and pain to get them took care through thrustmaster. I upgraded pedals now and still use the wheel. Used on Xbox forza and PC for iracing, Corsa and Project racing 2.

    Love playing this with forza 6. It really makes the game more realist. I've enjpyed using it once I got past the initial setup in forza.. if you buy this wheel and are having issues with it being overly sensitive go into your controller settings in forza and adjust until you're happy.

    Bought this for my husband as a b-day gift and he loves it! Takes some getting used to but he’s said he likes using the wheel for racing games much more than a regular controller. Great gift for a guy that loves racing games!

    Fun but overrated

    The wheel works alright, it’s really not suited to living room gaming, but if you get it to work, it’s fun enough, if a bit more difficult to use than a controller. If you’re not sure about it, I wouldn’t recommend getting it.

    OMG! this is one of the best things I have bought as part of a game system in a long time. If you love racing car games then this is a must have item. I have so much fun with this control I definitely recommend it.

    I am pleasantly surprised at how good the steering wheel is. I wasn’t expecting to work so well. With that being said, I feel I would need to practice a lot with it to get as good at driving as I am with the controller.

    I did a lot of research before I bought this wheel. I would say it is the best wheel in this price category. Very responsive and great force feedback! The pedals are good as well.

    I bought this wheel for use in American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, it worked very well for both games. However, after owning it for about 2 weeks, the "steel" base pin for the clamp snapped off. It is now $200 worth of garbage. Buy any wheel that is not this one.

    It operates as it claims with force feed back but it is uncomfortable to sit on couch and have to squeeze legs holding it in place. I u r not clamping it to desk or have some sort of tig I wouldn't bother.

    The Best Value on the market.

    I have owned the $400 Thrustmaster TX 458 Italia edition and now this TMX. I think that this wheel is better than the tx and it cost nearly 50% less. The TMX is the best Value on the market easily in my opinion.

    This is my first wheel and I don't know how much better it can get. Very comfortable, looks good, versatile. I also really like the button layout on it. Easy mounting too.

    Samsung 60" flat screen 120 motion rate was bought online. When I got there to pick it up I had second thoughts. I should have gone for the 240 motion rate. I questioned the clerk and he showed me the difference and done deal! I upgraded and am very happy I did!

    Not to bad as a beginner force feedback wheel but feels like a toy and not a real steering wheel. Force feedback works good but not a high end wheel.

    If you're into racing games, and play in automatic shifting mode, this is an absolute game changer. You can always add on s clutch pedal set and shifter if needed

    No defects noted, good quality materials. My son’s only complaint was that the steering wheel was way to hard to move. Not sure if it was his or just standard.
