I've had my T300 RS for over a year and it's been great. I tend not to use it for longer than 30-45 minutes each day though, so I can't comment about it "giving up" after an hour of use. I had a G27 during GT5 and GT6 and I much prefer the Thrustmaster. I am not hardcore enough to fork over $1,000 USD for a Fanatec and a more rigid cockpit than my Playseat Challenge. If I was highly competitive online and didn't play any other games or anything, then maybe sure.
