    I got my T300 for 189 from Zavvi, Sometimes no catch

    probably no catch at all... MSRP is $400 USD but street price is usually closer to $290 USD, even at the big retailers like Amazon and Walmart.

    Check out reviews from Nigel o'hara. I'm glad I haven't brought it. Fraud!

    Before you buy it . Find out if thurstmaster has officially allowed them to sell . Cos if not thustmaster will not fix or exchange the wheel if things go wrong... Another thing is make sure that the wheel has external power supply as i have 2 TX thustmaster that have internal and both have blown tirac .. This is the weakness in the thustmaster TX ... Hence why they now put the psu on the outside on the newest wheel ...

    Doesn't matter if thrustmaster haven't up to the retailer to fix any problems on the first year.
