logitech have been known a the industry standard in driving controllers.
i used to until it was dismantaled part of a pro online racing league and team getting paid to race so i know a bit about racing wheels.
The Wheel : has a nice rubberised grips but however residue on these does come off in the first few hours of play.
buttons are well placed and the table locking system is the best of all the racing wheels.
this wheel features force feedback. i feel that it lacks power though giving up quite easily.
also are small button paddle shifters
the pedals: no clutch pedal hear, only your standard brake and accelerator. both are weighted perfectly.
but they are made from plastic which does not give you much confidence in smashing you foot into them
but they work well and have enough resistance to give precise driving
overall great wheel
well what can i say about the wheel control thing. this control is top of the range and has revolutionalised my live and my gaming. it makes you feel like you are driving a car or depending on the game a sort of automobile. the key reason why this controller is the best thing in the gaming world is that in real life people drive cars so naturally we want to drive them in the cyber world. cars have wheels and so does this controller that is why i think that this control is perfect for games that are auto orientated. also the wheel is circular in the same way cars have circular wheels the similarity is uncanny. great for driving such as forza and project gotham racing. also as it is red this looks so cool i think that all your friends will be so jealous of you. a must have for a true gamer. qed
Do you want to experience a real-life car racing thrill in the safety of your living room? Well go and buy a Logitech Wingman Formula Force EX.
Despite its garish red wheel, it packs in everything you could want: 4 well positioned small, silver buttons that avoid accidental pushing, 2 green LEDs to indicate the power and connection to the computer, perfect friction on the grip, 2 simple-to-use paddle shifters, 2 accelerator and brake pedals, and a Wingman Profiler CD complete with Gremlin's Motorhead and Ubisoft's F1 Racing.
After following the easy set-up requirements, and after mounting the wheel to your desk with the 2 screw on clamps provided, the performance is quite exceptional. The power supply is connected to the wheel base, and then the wheel can be connected using the Y-type lead to a serial port, or use the serial-to-USB converter to connect it to a USB port. It is compatible with Apple MacOS X 10.2.3 or later, and Microsoft Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista.
It is unbelievable how much more control over the car you have than with a keyboard. Instead of accelerating at full tilt, or having to repeatedly tap the directional arrows, you have full and intricate grasp of the car's each and every movement allowing for perfect acceleration and smooth cornering.
You can easily tweak the sensitivity of the wheel too, ensuring you can drive just as you would in real life.
The price is ~£44, which is well worth it because you will inevitably spend hours and hours enjoying it.
After a query over whether this wheel can be used for spaceships etc, I have researched it and unfortunately I remain not entirely sure. Personally I have only used it for car racing games, and I would suggest that this is where the wheel is at its optimum best.
Overall the wheel provides an exhilarating, complete, addictive, and most importantly, a realistic driving sensation that is unrivalled in the computer world.
