Worlds Most Teribble Pedal Construction...
20 October 2013
Summary: The wheel it itself is a phenomenal piece of equipment in construction and feel, especially for the money. However, as the previous GT wheel, the pedal construction is so fragile that I could almost swear it was made by Fischer Price.
Summary: The wheel part works great. Lots of buttons. I'm on my 2nd one. Could be constructed better internally. The column supports inside are not both made of metal only one. Had one break. As far as the pedals go...weakest link in the chain. Nice wheel , junk pedals. Go after market on pedals if using DFGT.
a little over rated, well done, but not for me on a PS3 with GT5

Summary: I've read every review, tons of youtube videos, and researched every wheel available for the PS3 and GT5. I have been gaming for well over 15 years and have a career in technical support so I have pretty high expectations when I spend a lot of money for a game add-on. This was my first wheel due to the value, guaranteed GT5 support, and the countless recommendations. My lap times went up (bad) by 5 seconds on average (spent one week getting used to it).
Summary: The wheel is okay. It's not spectacular and it isn't a POS either. On occasion I do notice some "slippage" and by that I mean it feels like something doesn't catch and the slack in the wheel goes totally loose and you can end up over compensating during a turn. May not be good for kids. My 7 year old daughter has trouble actually turning the wheel because of the force feedback. It makes it feel much heavier than it really is. Overall, not bad, but not really good either.
Summary: I found the Logitech Playstation 3 Driving Force GT Racing Wheel to be an impressive driving accessory. However, it is made to work with Playstation's Gran Turismo, and I have to say that the game does not stand up to SimuRide Home Edition for realism. The wheel is great in that you feel the bumps and vibrations of the road, but I believe I would have enjoyed it far more with a different game. Overall, the wheel is cumbersome and awkward, and not at all user friendly.
Summary: I've used this exclusively with GT5 and it works great. I've even built a custom mount for it (see pics). However there is one big problem. The sensor in the brake pedal has been screwed up since the first day. This happens during calibration. My work around is that during calibration I just hold in the brake pedal about a 1/4 of an inch. This allows it to work fine but for the money, I shouldn't have to do this.
Summary: Bought this just to play GT5 and ultimately it was an okay decision. At the sale price of 120 dollars it was still an expensive buy for a video game acessory, however this makes a game like GT5 enjoyable. If I had to play GT5 with a controller, I would have probably sold it within a month. This makes it feel more like an old-time arcade driving set-up.
Summary: First off, I know my way around a car, know and understand driving and racing dynamics, and am a car enthusiast above all. I understand concepts of trail-braking, lift-off oversteer, etc. etc. So I'm not your average casual driving enthusiast. Unfortunately, my level of tast in cars and racing does not meet my budget - (currently in college). So this is the best I could come up with for the money. I paid $100 with free shipping for this wheel.
Summary: I use this product in conjunction with the Logitech GT for the GT5 Prologue (PS3). My main drive (no pun intended) behind this purchase was the following: I needed a stand which I could use in my living room, while driving on my couch. Our coffee table is too low so I looked around for options, including building my own stand. Several schematics are available on the web, but none of them met the aesthetics requirements of my better half... This stand, however, did.
