    The FF is intermittently weak, and it's only getting worse.

    I'm not picky (nor can I afford to be) so I only require a wheel that is at least as precise and reliable. The stock pedals were garbage, but I replaced them with the TM T3PA set. That's why I prefer a TM wheel -- the pedals calibrate better with them. I'm looking for something not much in excess of $300. I'm willing to go used if it has been used lightly.

    I'm having to buy this with PayPal credit (It's interest-free if I pay back within a year) because I'm having to save up my cash for my cat's tumor surgery. The vet doesn't accept PayPal. :(

    I bought outlet T300 alcantara edition for around that price and im happy with it, sweet spot for price/quality imo. Have it for a year- had to replace a fan, it was super loud, leaked bushing was the fault, super easy and cheap replacement

    Good luck to your Kitto

    I see a lot of listings for the T300RS, but they state only that they're for PS3/4. Am I correct in assuming that all of these are also for pc?

    They seem to have had a very high failure rate when they were introduced. Has that been improved? I'm strongly leaning in their direction because all the reviews I watched said they're great wheels, but I can't afford to buy another in six months if this one breaks.

    No idea about improvement, except the fan, mine is fine and dandy (i run in constantly running fan mode). I bought mine from standard online shop, outlet section so it came with 1 year warranty

    I just realized the standard warranty was a full year. And I can get another year of coverage for $22. I'm close to pulling the trigger.
