Top customer reviews
The hand grips on the steering wheel, and the overall feel of the wheel and peddles is fantastic and the mounting is easy and simple. The metallic gear changing triptonic paddles are metal and feel very smooth and nice in your hand when changing gear, and the rest of the buttons on the steering wheel work very well with in game menu's.
All of the above has been said, so I'll move on to F1 2015 and Project Cars (PC):
Project Cars - Project Cars works great with this wheel. Unfortunately, there is no setting for the Thrustmaster F458 Italia wheel on the PC version, meaning you're forced to use the setting labelled "Xbox One Controller - Classic". Using this setting, you're able to use all of the buttons on the steering wheel very well, and with no issues. I found it best to increase the sensitivity of the wheel in the Project Cars Menu, and also found that setting the Deadzones to as low as possible also helped. The only downside to this is that, when you come to the leaderboard menu, it will show that your fastest laps were set on a controller and not on a wheel. A small price to pay, I'd say.
F1 2015 - I was able to get this wheel to work on every other F1 game I own on PC (12, 13, 14) however COULD NOT get it to work on F1 2015. This might have been down to something I was doing, but after many attempts I couldn't get the peddles to work. When launching F1 2015, you're warned that the steering wheel is not supported, but after that, the menu works pretty perfectly. I believed this to be a good sign, however after jumping in to Time Trial, it became clear the wheel would not work, as the accelerator stuck on, and I could not move the car. This is my experience each time, and unfortunately I have found no fix. Would love to hear if anyone else got this to work.
EDIT: After much more time, I have managed to get this wheel to work on F1 2015. You will need, once again, to use the "Xbox One Controller" Configuration, and create a Custom Preset when in the controls menu. This will allow you to control the car normally, and with a high degree of accuracy. I have found that micro adjustments are fine,but for the time being, I am happy that it works :)
All in all, for Project Cars and F1 games besides 2015, this wheel is fantastic. As a product, it works perfectly, is very responsive and durable. The peddles are tough, responsive as well, and progressive when depressed. The only reason I am giving this product a 4 star rating is down to the fact that, on the PC, getting games to pick it up either at all, or as a wheel and not under the control setting was few and far between.
Hope this helps, any comments on F1 2015 etc. welcomed.
I was also very happy with service from seller (Box). Communications were curteous; delivery was very quick and item arrived 5 days early (thank you so much for this ;) )
Overall extremely pleased.
It is well made and no corners have been cut in manufacturing this moderately priced wheel. Everything feels well made from the USB plug to the click of the metal gear paddles. The wheel is of an acceptable size and the bracket attaches it to the desk quiet securely, the pedals can slip on a wooden floor when things get frantic, but that is not surprising and I will find a way to work around this.
You may have to adjust the sensitivity of the wheel in each game to get the best performance out of it to suit your driving style.
I have used it in Dirt 3, F1 2010/2012/2014 and it has raised the enjoyment and immersion of the games to another level.
The only thing that is missing is force feedback, but to get this you have to fork out a lot more money and the fun is not lessened for the lack of it.
Overall I would recommend this wheel to anyone; good value and great fun.
Original review: I used to play on a Logitech Driving Force GT. To go from that to this is a big step not only in production quality but also price so make sure it is something that is for you & want to get the best experience in driving games. I recommend what I did which is looking at Youtube videos of people playing with this wheel, reviews & forums were those who own this give their views compared to other cheaper alternatives.
It will take some time getting used to, for me about a week. When I bought this at the start I was not too impressed, I thought it was alright but maybe too overrated. That changed when one day I did a comparison to the Logitech DFGT when playing a couple of games. The T500RS felt not only more solid but also delivered better force feedback. I also felt like I had more control of any car I was driving.
The pedals are fine. I have not had any problems since the start of using them.
Overall I would recommend this for those who are into their car simulators & want as realistic a driving feel as possible. If you are a casual racer though, then the cheaper Logitech DFGT + the paddle shifter mod (about £30 & very easy to install) may be a better option as I still think it is a very good wheel which can still provide a fun driving experience.
I would have also liked to compare this to the Logitech G27 but I do not own or have tried one.
