- Saitek's R440 Force Wheel

If you're an avid car racing fan like myself, you'll know that your computer setup just isn't complete without a decent force feedback wheel & pedals in order to make the experience even more immersive. The folks over at Guru3D have revved up Saitek's R440 wheel for review and it looks to offer all the goods along with an unbeatable price tag.


If you are one of those freaks who is willing to get up in the middle of the night for a Formula-1 Grand Prix race then good news, you are not alone! Racing is an extraordinary event in many classes: motorcycling, carting, Formula 3000, Rally, Nascar, etc... If you are such a freak (yours truly included), chances are that you also have a mid to high-end PC on which you like to play racing games (yours truly is among them again). In fact, what I play most are F1 games. Now I've always been a keyboard man when it comes to steering until I messed around with some wheels. They come in all kinds of shapes, forms and sizes and today's review will of course be centered around a racing wheel. It's the recently renewed Saitek R440 with Force Feedback.
