Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Love hate relationship!
If you love messing with computers and tech kit you will love this!
You will spend as much time setting up and playing with the software as you will riding! But am I glad I bought it? Oh yeah!
When it all works together it is huge fun, especially connected to your big LCD TV with a HDMI cable! Then it is full immersion!
I love the VR world with cheering crowds and lovely scenery!
I hate Turbo Training but this really kept my mind active and was challenging!
I paired it up with a Bushido and with an average PC knowledge get by.
I am running it on a Intel i3 Laptop with a dedicated ATi Radeon graphix card, it may be jumpy on your run of the mill laptop

got the software as a present to go with the Bushido trainer. For the first 2 weeks I could not get it to run on my PC. So rebuilt PC (read the system spec compatibility - mine was new in 2006) from motherboard up - well overspec'd to requirements. The software loaded much better BUT the software is locked form the first install so I had fun getting the software key reset for new PC :O(. The software now worked except for free video demos which closed the program after the countdown. Several emails to Tacx support later and a few patch modifications eventually got all the software to work I now feel like a Tacx R+D tester!!
That aside now it is running I'm having fun with the machine and software and data. Added new frustration is the Garmin HRM has to be re-input into settings every new session it is not remembered - and that is how Tacx want it :O(
£200 of hard work and frustration!!!!
