5.0 out of 5 stars Great Performance on a Budget 29 Jun 2007
By MRevo
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this having experienced a friend's playing GTR2. For what initially appears a more budget type wheel, it does not dissapoint!! Excellent force feedback and weight to the wheel; in fact, on a par with the Dual Force Pro, but a much cheaper proposition. Rubber grips on the side are superb, never had a problem unlike the early all-plastic wheels.

The pedals feel solid, if a little light to use compared to a real car (but there's no fluid so it's to be expected).

Paddles for gearshift are perfectly placed, my only gripe is that at times it's too easy to nudge the D-pad on the left of the wheel.

Bonus - designed for PC, but I managed to easily play Gran Turism 4 on my PS2 using the wheel, the only loss being the paddles not working on the back, but then you can't expect everything when there is another product specifically for the PS2.

In summary: superb product for the price, would recommended, especially for sims like GTR/GTR2, unless of course your budget stretches to the 3-pedal wheels out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed 6 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having seen a few other wheels at friends' houses and for sale at car-boot sales, which all to be honest were 'placcy' and feeble-looking.

The Logitech Formula Force EX is superior in comparison. It has a good solid weight to it, and is obviously a better quality product from when you hold it in the box. The coloured parts of the wheel are rubber for better comfort and grip and the design is ergonomically sound.

Now to how it plays - tried it on NFS Carbon and had trouble keeping in a straight line! However, it comes with some tweaking software that helps you tweak the force feedback and calibration sensitivity settings, (although you need to play around a bit to see what each setting does as there is little explanation given) help you set individual settings for each driving game you have installed and it is a launcher too - allowing you to launch the game exe from there. So after setting it, NFS Carbon was playable but it is difficult to do well. I think I need to adjust more settings.
Flatout 2 works superbly! It is so fun to play with this wheel. I've just dug up all of my driving games to try out next so should be fun!!
Overall, I'm very happy with it. Solid, well-made and great fun. No regrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable, Fun and Cheap 11 Dec 2008
By David
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this steering wheel 2 years ago, along with the driving game Test Drive Unlimited. Although it seemed a bargain buy, I was stunned to find that when I first played with it the feel of the wheel and comfy rubber grips made my driving experience very close to reality.

The Formula Force EX has superb build quality, and not once in 2 years has there been a single squeak or rattle, even when my friends who were also quickly addicted after trying it out, thrashed the wheel round at corners! The paddles for changing gear and the accelarate and brake pedals respond very quickly. Also, the force feedback is very realsitic.

It was nice and simple to install, I have no regrets about buying it, it is phenomenal value for money and it is very hard indeed to to better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 11 Jan 2008
By Mama-G
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Got this wheel as a christmas present, lived up to all expectations. Caliibrating took a bit of time as the windows software always shows wheel out of line when it is straight (though on GTR 2 it works fine). A good amount of choice when it comes to the force (works excellently). Can be very strong if you want it to.
Overal very impressed, hardware and software very good, another brilliant logitech product

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, easy to use and good value for money 5 Jun 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this to go with Live For Speed (free download racing game) Set up was easy, I just needed to turn down the force feedback settings to stop curbs ripping the wheel out of my hand.

I use this on 2 PC system, plenty of cable, software is small and eary to calibrate only tasking about 5 minuted from the box to racing.

The wheel feels good, buttons and pedals are positive. The pedals could do with a stick rubber pad on the bottom to reduce the pedal box slipping away from you when driving but that was easy to fix.

4.0 out of 5 stars formula force ex pro whell 5 July 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Purchased this good quality steering wheel for the pc. Found that it was fairly easy to setup and easy to use. As an added bonus , we found out that the same steering wheel would work to a large extent on the Ps3. We were also able to to use the steering wheel's buttons like we would normally with a ps3 controller. The foot controls also worked well on both the pc & Ps3.
Overall, liked this product
