The good: Wireless operation; one-piece steering wheel sits on your lap with no clamping required; force feedback; relatively lightweight and easy to stowaway; also works with PS2.
The bad: Build quality and overall feel is a step down from the Logitech Driving Force GT; no battery option, so this "wireless" wheel still needs an AC cord.
The bottom line: Logitech's Driving Force Wireless for the PS3 may not be for hard-core racers, but what you give up in performance you get back in ease of use and set up.
Great Wheel for Casual GT5 Player
by stimpski44 on June 7, 2011
Pros: Easy setup and storage
Works with GT5
Cons: Needs rechargeable battery option, not true wireless

Summary: This is a great wheel for a casual racing gamer who is looking for a better experience than using the standard PS3 controller. I bought the Logitech wheel off Ebay refurbished for $50 and it's worth every penny. $100 retail seems a little steep when the official Logitech GT5 wheel is slightly more expensive at $130. The force feedback is good and the paddle gas/brake is easy to learn. The one-piece compact design makes the unit easy to store and quick to set up. This wheel is 100% functional with Gran Turismo 5 and I look forward to using the wheel with Nascar 2011. A rechargeable battery would be nice, but the AC adapter works fine and doesn't get in the way. I would recommend this wheel to gamers who want a solid product but don't have deep pockets.
This Wheel ROCKS!!!!!

Pros: Real easy to set up if you call it that, This wheel for the price is so much better than the joy stick it's response is so on the money. I have to say that I love this wheel because it does what it's suppose to do and it's so affordable.
Cons: There is none.

Summary: You really feel like your driving and in total control. I have Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and the 50.00 bucks is nothing for the fun and enjoyment you get out of this AWESOME WHEEL. I feel that just buying the wheel for 5 Protogue alone was well worth it. For beginers like me who really don't need the clutch and brake pedal but want to experience total racing driving you really have to get this. I bought 2 wheels so I can race my friends and its a blast. You feel all the bumps and everything such a great wheel I have had it for 3 weeks and no problems at ALLI needed to add this because it's important the gas and brake are behind the steering wheel gas right side and brake left side behind wheel very easy to use I only wish that the cars today have the same configuration, soooooo much better than a gas and brake pedal. One note I had a bad crash and wheel went out of alignment I followed jmy7213 instructions unpluging the dongle and unplug power cord set steering straight ahead and like magic it's fixed and working 100% I LOVE THIS WHEEL!!!!!!!!
If you have the SP3 Move like I do you will have two USB ports in front just plug your two wheels into it and your set to go so easy to set up and the A/C cords with transformer has a very long cord and it does NOT get in the way at all. My hats off to Logitech for making a product everybody can buy and enjoy.

This wheel is awesome and affordable!

Pros: Easy to set up, and easy to use, this is an awesome lil device if you dont want to be plugged to the PS3 or dont want pedals and shifters to get in the way. You can feel all of the crashes bumps and more.
Cons: Only thing I wish they could have changed is for it to have a rechargable battery
Summary: This is really an awesome wheel. And you cant beat the price. It has great feel, and reactions. Its portable which is good for me, so we can set the ...
Summary: This is really an awesome wheel. And you cant beat the price. It has great feel, and reactions. Its portable which is good for me, so we can set the PS3 up in the Van, and play on long trips. it does have a bit of a getting used to period as it is not normal to drive with paddles, instead of pedals, but once you get accustomed to it you actually prefer to drive without pedals. And the other guy saying that it goes out of alignment and there is no fix? He must have not read the quick startup guide. If it does ever happen, just unplug the dongle, move the steering wheel to the center position, disconnect the power and reattach it and plug back in the dongle. Doesn't happen that often, Once when I dropped it. Kids love this thing too,(thats right, Im an overgrown mid life crisis Kid! LOL)
Don't Buy This Wheel

Pros: Light, easy to use - good concept.
Cons: Steering wheel becomes misaligned after a few uses and cannot be fixed.

Summary: I used this wheel for about 1 day before it gave me problems. The steering wheel went offcenter by about 10-15 degress (to the right) and there is no way to fix it. The result is that the car swerves out of control every time you start a race. This is not an isolated problem. Check Logitech's website under the support section. Many people are having the same problem. Returned this wheel fro the Driving Force GT - much better wheel and no problems to date. FYI, I bought this wheel for $29.99 at Best Buy and the GT wheel was $99.99 - worth the extra money to avoid hassles.
