It's great. Does what it says on the tin. PS3 didn't recognise it by default, but still much better than the controller. A bit scary at 160 mph around Daytona, but what isn't? Very convenient to have on the sofa next to one, rather than having to screw it to a table or desk. Gets a little unstable on the circuits requiring swift extreme turns - needs trousers with good friction like maybe jeans. Maybe I'll strap it to my legs next time - although then getting to the fridge could be a problem.

I've wanted a racing wheel for years so I could live out that fantasy of having an arcade in my front room. So what stopped me? The whopping levels of commitment required! First there's the price - these things can be steep. But worst of all is the lack of convenience; I do my gaming on my family TV in our lounge whilst sat on a sofa. I can't leave a wheel clamped to a table and if I have to mess around with setting up pedals every time I get 15 mins to myself to play Outrun arcade then the thing is going to stay in it's box. Thankfully Logitech have recognised me and my brethren as an exploitable market and released the Driving Force Wireless just for us. Okay, so it's not really wireless as you have to plug it in to the mains, but it's designed to sit on my lap, there are no pedals and no cable between me and the console. AND it feels like a proper arcade wheel - perfect!

Well, almost. Here's a few ups and downs for your consideration:

The Bad:
No button mapping/assignment. So if the games you play don't support wheels or allow you to re configure control settings this aint gonna work. Worst offenders are the Motor Storm games (steering works but no paddles and holding down the correct buttons is overtly cumbersome to say the least).

Doesn't work with PS2 games on a 60gb PS3. Yes, I know most people don't care. And if Crazy Taxi and Burnout 3 ever make it to the PSN I won't care either. But right now, I do. (edit: Crazy Taxi has been released on the PSN since I wrote this and guess what - NO driving wheel compatibility. The shame of it!)

Force Feedback is rubbish on anything but GT5 Prologue. Seriously rubbish. You can still hear the motors spinning very loudly when you make sharp turns even if you turn the vibration modes off in game.

The minute the Steering wheel came through the door i bolted upstairs and turned on Gran turismo 5 prologue, it works straight out of the box, no complicated setup here. The wheel feels very comfortable on your lap and contrary to my own pre-conceptions it doesnt move about much either.

The Force Feedback is quite strong too and the wheel as a whole is very responsive, giving you a visceral driving experience. It also works with the Playstation 2 games both Backwards compatible on PS3 and the actual PS2 system itself. Plus not many wires just one for power so its easy to store when not being used.

I would have preffered a full kit with pedals but my space issues put paid to that, so this is a fantastic alternative. All in all a fantastic wheel highly recommended!

Well as a middle aged F1 fan I had to buy the 2010 game. Wanting my 1st wheel, to make this easier, you know what I mean. With no kids to advise me and a wife to hide it from, I read the reviews and watched the You Tube bits. I was unsure but what the hell its only £25 less than a 3 axis controller, so I got one. Firstly it hides beautifully behind the telly! Yes its plasticy but you won't be worried about that trust me! Plug it in to the mains apparently this is a hardship? Plug in the dongle and if the game is ready to go, it will jiggle before your eyes! I suggest you go to options, steering wheel and set as follows top to bottom; 15% 75% 95% 15% 75% 15% and 75%, tried a few these are great. The PS button does work but you need to use a controller to start off as it makes the wheel no 2 on the list. For a "cheap wheel" I can't fault it yes I could have brought a G27 but for what i'll use this for its great. Practise laps 1st and it only gets better. The feed back is better than a 3 axis controller but don't expect it to rip your arms off! It does stay on your lap and with a bit of manipulation of your lower limbs it stays put. Like a said the plasticy look doesn't come into it, you'll be trying to keep De Grassi behind you. The GT games also play well.The lack of pedals means nothing to me learn to feather the paddles for brake and throttle its a crack! So to finally sum up hurrah I hear you say: If you are loaded have a sympathic wife who excepts boys never grow up but their toys get more expensive, buy a GT 25 OR 7. If you are like me buy the cheapie who knows the plummet in price might mean there is an even better cheapie on the way you won't be sorry! (no I don't work for Logitech!)

The driving force wireless was really my only choice available to me for F1 2010, due to the nature of my gaming set up and not being able to practically place pedals anywhere. So I opted to give it a try.

Now, my main query had not been answered in any other reviews so in case anyone else is thinking of it; It is unpractical to try and change the button configuration so that the L1/R1 are brake/accelerate as they are not pressure sensitive. Thus the paddles cannot be used for gear change. The buttons were however fully customisable in-game so if you think any other setup will suit you, knock yourself out!

Other than this there are only minor problems for me with the wheel. Those being its weight and feel. Having played on the driving force GT I can say outright there is a definite difference in quality of feel. Also, it took me quite some time to get the setup right so that the *extremely* light steering wheel wasn't sliding about everywhere.

But, these points aside, the wheel genuinely has been one of my best investments in my gaming experience. Wheel driving cannot be compared to controller driving, it is quite simply in its own league. The 200 degree rotation of the wheel I must add is also far more realistic for the F1 game I play predominantly so I'm happy with that.

Overall, I needed a steering wheel that didnt use pedals, and was affordable. I would probably have paid a bit more than £40 for one with a bit more of a real wheel feel to it, but this wheel definitely does the job as best it could!
