Once everything is out of the box, you will find the literature lying on the bottom of the box. As part of a kit, Genius deliver a user manual that is written in 25 languages, so I assume things will be very blunt and to the point.

Each language gets its own page of instructions. These start off showing off four things under the heading of specifications and it then covers the basic functions of this device, and ends things off with a chart converting the symbols on the wheel to PC settings, PS3 settings or their Xinput counterparts.

You also get a disc that delivers the PC driver for the SW 6 MT, and also has a PDF version of the manual on it. I strongly suggest you use the driver, without it the vibration feedback is dysfunctional, and there is a bit of input lag. With the driver installed, both issues were rectified instantly.

To mount the steering wheel and gear shifter to a desk that the suction cups won't grab onto normally, you are given these plastic C-clamps. The pin at the top of the right clamp sets into the base, and then you adjust the screw to securely grip the underside of the desk. These are reinforced with the way the plastic is designed, but under pressure they do flex quite a bit.

This is just to show how the clamps sit into the base when they are used and tightened completely to the table. Even though they are bulky, the way they are placed on the base keeps them away from your fingers when turning the wheel and this one does not impede on the gear shifter in any way.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
