Logitech MOMO Force

Gaming deviceOnce you come to grips with the fact that you've shelled out $500 for a gaming steering wheel, you realise you expect a lot from this device. The name MOMO (www.momo.it), which is synonymous with racing paraphernalia, is not worn in vain on the thick centreplate of brushed and anodised "aluminium.

The wheel is 250mm in diameter and is covered in nicely hand-stitched leather - and, as on the genuine article, six Allen-keyed bolts appear to hold the wheel onto the boss. Six control buttons and two status lights reside on the steering wheel. Gear changes are made using the solid steel paddle shifters, while brake and accelerator duties are handled by the MOMO decaled, aluminium-trimmed pedals with red non-skid tread. The pedals are mounted Porsche style onto the base, meaning that they depress into the floor pan. The base with its dead pedal and industrial pattern aluminium floorboard is weighted and uses eight rubber stoppers on its underside to prevent sliding. Best of all, the unit's solid construction and design allow for some pretty heavy-handed driving without pedals flying underfoot or damage being caused to the wheel. Even better than the MOMO's stop-you-in-your-tracks look and feel is the trouble-free enjoyment it gives to PC-based car games.

One USB port is required to connect the wheel and one power outlet for the AC power converter. Load up the software and you can be up and running in under 15 minutes. The variable steering sensitivity combined with analog turning and pedal controls lend a very realistic sense of control to game play. All up, my stratospheric levels of expectation were met by this fine gaming device. It's $499 well spent for any racing game enthusiast.
