Just two seconds ago my second T500 died on me. I was racing and out of the blue the FFB went dead. I thought it was just another USB failure but whatever i do, there is no life...no green light...nothing. My first T500 died with a puff of smoke. I send it back to TM and received a completely new base. That was about...one or two years ago? So yeah...now what? I probably sent it back again.
