2.0 out of 5 stars Poor FM reception, not practical., 20 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery 5 stars, but the radio was disappointing, nicely made but, I can't pick up DAB here (must be a not spot) and the FM reception on this radio is poor. I have had better FM reception on cheaper radios.

Amendment
I have now been able to use the radio where there is a good DAB signal and it performs very well. But I reiterate my comment with regards to FM reception which I find rather poor.

Battery life is short if you use Stand By, if using batteries always switch the radio on and off at the back (this does mean when you switch on it has to scan DAB channels again. The buttons along the front are too sensitive they need to be a more positive to select, it is easy to brush a button when moving the radio and find you are scanning channels, go to Stand By, or changed modes etc.

All this is a shame because it is a nicely made radio, it's British, and I want to love it, but really it is a case of could do better. I have upped my star rating from one to two because it was ok on DAB but its limitations are a issue

I am afraid I can't recommend this product, I could of better spent £30 on something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great wheel, great fun, 6 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first racing wheel and I love it.
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.
