Despite the argument over the peripheral's necessity, the device does work accurately and as advertised. The real question is whether or not you want to hold the wheel in the air for the duration of an endurance race. quote

Casual drivers who never set the difficulty level past "Normal" and never set the transmission to "Manual," but still enjoy a good race and perhaps want more control and accuracy... If that sort of casual racing sim fanatic sounds like you, the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel merits checking...

The Wireless Speed Wheel is marred by a couple of bad design decisions, and the effort of holding it in racing position can make longer racing sessions tiring. Yet it’s accurate and responsive, and it does make playing Forza 4 – and other racers – a more exciting and immersive experience.

It's not a steering wheel replacement, and it's not really trying to be... And air steering, much like air guitar, proves to be pretty fun.

I am thinking this is an iffy purchase. I love simulation racing and I feel this wheel is better suited to an arcade style of racing. It is as good at tracking as you are, as there is no base to the wheel. So you have to keep track of which way is a 0 degree turn. Of course this will not beat a...

I much prefer the resistence of a FF when when turning, however, this "hold-in-the-air" wheel is more responsive than I was expecting. Driving on a traditional Xbox controller is a horrible experience. You can get away with it on games where you just hold down the throttle and go, but on the F1...
