Summary: The G25 is a tank. Strong FFB, bulletproof design, ease of use.. no weak links. Research the G27, the supposed improved sequel, and its a disaster! The problem with the G27 is that theres a disk attached to the steering shaft in a press fit, and the disk can slip, and the disk is what sends the wheel position to the electronics. Logitech never fixed the problem in manufacture. I own a Thrustmaster T500RS, and its FFB is even more tank-like than the G25 by a wide margin.
Summary: The Logitech G25 Racing Wheel is a real pleasure to use: beautifully hand-crafted leather-wrapped aluminum wheel, 6-speed automatic/manual transmission, and aluminum racing pedals. It's not just eye candy, however. The wheel and pedals behave almost like their counterparts in a real car and help to add realism to sim racing: Force Feedback Wheel Logitech did a bang up job of the Force Feedback Wheel!
Good choice for PC but abandoned by most PS3 developers

Summary: Formula 1 2007 for PS3, even with its limited steering lock and 720p resolution, is a ton of fun with this wheel and the main reason I bought the G25. This is a very nice wheel and way better than the XBox 360 wheel (the G25 wheel shaft does not wobble), but unless you play PC games, SAVE YOUR MONEY because XBox 360 will not support the G25 and most PS3 game developers are ignoring the G25.
Summary: If your a serious racer,this is your wheel.It works on the computer,PS3 and X box.What more do you want in a wheel? The controls are smooth,precise and solid. When I opened up the box it was obvious from looking at this it was serious hardware.
Summary: Let me get the flaws out of the way... The shifter is well known for feeling flimsy, having unnecessary clicking noises, and failing to delivery like the wheel and pedals do. This is an important aspect of racing just like the other accessories are. The shifter needs much improvement! The pedals COULD be stiffer and vary in pressure, but that is me nitpicking after many many hours. Additionally, the wheel grinds and is very noisy.
Summary: I bought this racing wheel because I wanted to make a racing sim so i could play grid, gtr 2, gtr evo etc... I am VERY happy that i bought this wheel instead of the others. the dual force feedback makes it feel like u are hitting every little bump. driving over cobblestone in grid is amazing and how fast the dff responds to the users hands. 900 degree turning radius, 6 speed shifter as well as paddle shifters.
Summary: I bought this one specifically for use with my Playstation 3 where it works perfectly. I expected some trouble with the installation, but all I had to do is plug it in and it worked. :) The key thing about this racing wheel over other is really it's quality. Especially the foot pedals are built really strong and rock solid. The wheel itself is also built very nicely and has a good solid feel.
Summary: First, it was painful to spend $200 on a racing wheel. I have the Playseats Evo, and so much wanted to enjoy the Xbox 360 wheel since I have almost every Xbox racing game already. However, after using the G25 on the PC, and the Xbox wheel on the Xbox 360.....I'll be doing all my racing on the PC. There is no comparison....the G25 is like driving a real car, the Xbox wheel is like a toy. In the end, I consider the G25 to be worth every penny.
Summary: Logitech's G25 has been on the market for a while, but I had been content to use an old Microsoft wheel up until recently for my PC racing sims (rFactor, Grand Prix Legends). A wheel upgrade was long overdue, so I finally took the plunge on Force Feedback after seeing screenshots of rFactor 2 popping up on the net.
