Op een Midtown Madness Fanpage staat een vrij uitgebreide review van de Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel. Hier heb je een stukkie over dit vibrerend stuur, de rest staat hier.
The MS Wheel is deadly accurate. The wheel measures the degree of turning with the same system found inside most computer mice. An optical sensor examines a disk that has small holes in it, and as you turn your wheel the sensor calculates the speed and direction of the holes as they pass infront of it. This provides unprecedented accuracy, and you never have to recalibrate the wheel again, ever. This neat innovation does not require special support from games, so the wheel is just as accurate in each game you play, old or new. The optical sensor is in no relation with the FF effects, so even if the gears inside the wheel would one day give up, the wheel would still control accurately.
