The second option is to drill a hole in your desk and actually bolt the wheel to the desk. This seems a bit extreme to me, but if you had a permanent racing setup this is a great bonus feature.
This USB wheel, like all of the other USB wheels, is incredibly easy to install and configure. Plug-and-play works like a charm and the Wingman Profiler software makes it easy to custom program the six buttons on the front.
The pedals feature real "floating" pedal pads that make these the most comfortable pedals I've ever driven. The pedal travel is longer than average which allows nice throttle control. I do wish that the brake spring was a little stronger to better simulate a real brake pedal but overall these pedals drive beautifully.
The metal butterfly shifters behind the steering wheel are well placed and feature a tight throw and a satisfying click to let you know that you've successfully shifted. Very nice.
Like Thrustmaster, Logitech uses the Immersion TouchSense Technology force effects which is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for force feedback effects.
One of the best features of this force feedback wheel is that there is no "notchy-ness" in the steering wheel. In other force feedback wheels you could feel the gears in the wheel which would prevent you from making smooth adjustments. This wheel solves that problem, it's very smooth.
