    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.

    Have you enjoyed your wheel?

    Yes! It's very accurate. The significantly increased lock has made it much easier to catch spins. It's like night and day. It's made me much faster and consistent.

    The only flaw is the power supply is a bit loose. But it maintains power unless it's knocked. I can use as much FFB as I like and it doesn't disturb it. It's not a problem during races.

    I recommend it, just as long as an extended warranty is purchased with it. But that's something I would advise getting with any wheel, because of the vigorously moving parts.
