The Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel is aimed at causal racing fans who want a bit more sensitivity than the standard Xbox 360 Controller S.
My standard racing sim setup is bulky and heavy, but offers much more lifelike control than the Speed Wheel.
However, the Speed Wheel's small size and easy setup are an advantage unto themselves.
When holding the wheel, the user's left and right thumbs rest on the D-pad and Y/X/B/A button banks, respectively.
In the center is the Xbox media button and the Start and Back buttons.
On the back of the unit are the left and right triggers, but there are no shoulder button analogs to be found here.
The Speed Wheel features a rumble function that is accompanied by a soft glow from LEDs hidden at the tips of the wheel's stalks.
Like the Controller S, the Speed Wheel runs on a pair of AA batteries. However, there is no compatibility with the Charge & Play cable or the standard wired headset.
On the tracks of Forza Motorsport 4, the Speed Wheel performed admirably. Sensitivity was good enough for casual racing fun.
The Wireless Speed Wheel will retail for about $60 when it hits stores in late October.
