About this deal

The fan gets about as loud as an Xbox 360‘s, which shouldn’t be too distracting if you use headphones or are able to turn the TV’s volume up a little. Sign up to receive daily breaking news, reviews, opinion, analysis, deals and more from the world of tech. Even with a DualSense controller’s clever haptics, that would just get lost in translation when simply gripping a gamepad.

While the turning of the wheel is very quiet — especially compared with the Logitech G-series models — there is a fan that kicks in when the wheel’s force feedback motor gets warmed-up. Contrary to a simple brushed motor, the brushless motor technology built into the T300RS series racing wheels also allows for an extremely quiet racing experience. While this is a new model, it actually slots neatly into the same modular system used by the Thrustmaster T500 RS, which was released in the PS3 era but offers some compatibility with PS4.It’s smooth-ish, but not entirely, and you feel the effect of the geared motor as it pulls against you when you take a corner at high speed. The included P1 steering wheel has rubbery grips and no vibration motors in the thing itself – all the effects come from the force feedback motors. Once everything is fully secured using the clamp on the underside of the wheelbase, you need to plug everything into power sockets or attach any extra components, such as the pedals, to the base.

That might mean you're getting a no-frills experience, but the brand makes some of the best and most accessible racing wheels on the market.

I used the CronusMax workaround on PS4 with GT Sport, but it looks like I would have to upgrade to the new Zen or a Drivehub plus a Hori pad to continue this setup.On the plus side, force feedback wheels hold their value even better than iPhones, so there’s little-to-no early adopter tax. The Thrustmaster T300RS is arguably the king of the mid-range when it comes to wheels – but if you don’t know how to set it up properly, you can’t extract the potential this wheel has to offer.
