SteelSeries Simraceway [S¹] SRW-S1 Steering Wheel Review - Packaging and Contents

SteelSeries put me back in the driver's seat of my favourite race games and made me try out some new ones with the [S] SRW-S1 steering wheel.

The [S¹] SRW-S1 steering wheel comes in a very revealing packaging. On the front the top and bottom are made of cardboard and offer room to add the name and features. The main components of the packaging are plastic so that you can see all but the very top and bottom of the wheel at the point of purchase.

On the right side the bulk of the information is printed in white text over the plastic. Things like the rotary dial controls, responsive RPM lights and fully programmable buttons are listed as features with others as well.

On the back of the packaging we get a blast on the game that this wheel was designed for Simraceway. There is a little bit about the game and also the fact that there is a $10 gift card to redeem in game for extra cars before you race and earn the money for the cars.

The left side of the packaging is plain so that potential buyers can get a good look at the thick, comfort grip handles. As I mentioned they are also contoured to almost make your hands become one with the wheel in no time at all.

The wheel is supported internally with the plastic covering the foam pads, as not to scratch the coating applied to the plastic body. The red tray that it sits on has a velvet finish and leaves a bit of red fuzz on the wheel that you may want to clean off.
