R440 Force Wheel (HID) is an ultimate racing wheel with powerful force feedback for improved performance, enhanced game play and maximum gaming realism. It is a force feedback wheel designed to give the same feedback as you would driving a real car, but the realism of this depends on the type of game being played. The game comes with pedals to control the gas and brake. Shifting is taken care of with either paddles, a simple shifter that is moved forward or back to change gears, or a shifter which is similar to that of real vehicles. The wheel is also cheap, well built and fully featured, making it user friendly. One thing though that the Saitek R440 doesn't have is a stick but it does provide two paddle shifters, gas and brake pedals, and four buttons, and it can be desk-mounted or held in your lap.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
