We are not ashamed to admit it: we are lovers of good videogames. That’s why we’ve been testing a wide variety of gaming steering wheels from the market for a long time and, to be honest, we’ve had a lot of disappointments. The first model we had was stuck within weeks of having bought it and then we discovered that some components had been burned. It was too cheap a model.
Another problem that we had with a couple more that we tried was that they were disqualified quickly and the steering wheel was going to one side. They also overheated and lost sensitivity and responded very slowly. One of them also came with a couple of buttons with problems and very noisy gears.
We also know that many of you have had a very bad time buying models from manufacturers that are too cheap and do not offer good quality care or guarantees.
