What customers say about "Key Specs"
HORI Apex Racing Wheel for PlayStation 4/3, and PC
  • It is hard for me to use the pedals but the steering wheel has L2 and R2 buttons on the rim that work the gas and brake.
  • Great entry level wheel for what it is. Well built, great grip and button layouts are awesome.
  • The buttons feel as good as any controllers. Even though this is built to a low price point it provides a much better experience than driving with a keyboard or gamepad.
  • This wheel doesn't have force feedback but it does have vibratory feed back which is enough for me especially at this price.
  • It doesn't do 2-3 full rotations like you're car would in real life so it is far too sensitive for racing.
Thrustmaster T80 Officially Licensed Racing Wheel for PS4/PS3 (also works on PC)
  • Overall the steering wheel feels great, it has paddle shifters, controller buttons, directional arrows, options and share button, etc.
  • Love it, great feel, nice sensitivity, good button layout. Great wheel for the price.
  • The buttons are remappable in some games, which is great because I'm used to using O for e-braking.
  • Buttons on the wheel are good and the wheel feels very smooth.
  • The other buttons feel a little on the cheap side and don’t really have the greatest feel but work fine.

What customers say about "Connection"
HORI Apex Racing Wheel for PlayStation 4/3, and PC
  • This unit fits the bill perfectly, and works great with Windows 10.
  • Good wheel for arcade racers like need for speed, burnout and etc. Works well with pc games as well.
  • Its easy to attach to a desk or table (with the clamp or suction cups) and only requires one USB port to connect to your computer.
  • Wheel has constant problems staying connected to computer amd always resets controls.
  • The wheel connected to my playstation but not correctly. The wheel had a hard way of calibrating the wheel to the playstation with a complex light system.
Thrustmaster T80 Officially Licensed Racing Wheel for PS4/PS3 (also works on PC)
  • This is my first racing wheel. It was easy to connect but required more patience to update and use.
  • Connects instantly to the PS4, really no setup required other than plugging in the supplied five foot undetachable USB cable.
  • It might also be helpful to note i was using usb 2.0 instead of 3.0 but i have yet to try it on 3.0. Easy connect.
  • There's no wireless connection to the PS4.
  • The USB cord to the PS4 is also too short, considering most people have a large screen HDTV. The USB cord is only 7 or 8 feet long.

  • Paddle shifters are cool, work fine. There is no force feedback, but the wheel does vibrate when you're off the track, hitting curbs or going through the rough.
  • The mounting for the wheel works well, the buttons on the wheel are also good.
  • No complaints with the pedals, or mounting. I'm really enjoying this wheel and I would recommend it for a casual gamer on a budget.

  • Does not come with drivers or software for adjusting settings on PC.
