Pretty good but limited game support

Summary: They need to do several things to make this a success. 1) they need to eliminate wires and use bluetooth/batteries, and only have 1 power wire for the force feedback wheel. 2) there needs to be a decent lap adapter. It would be ideal to combine this with a storage case.
Pros: Has a clutch, H-gate manual shifter, paddle shifters, etc. The feedback detail can be quite good, but that varies from game to game. Sometimes you get detailed feedback from road surfaces, and other times it's just an abitrary mechanical shaking.
Cons: Wiring is incredibly cumbersome; it takes about 5 minutes to set the thing up to play and then to put it away again. There's no ideal way to mount the thing; the lap adapter sucks and the best thing I've found for sofa use is a 8"x30" shelf, which is uncomfortable. Also, the quality is questionab...
Summary: The G25 is a good replacement for the Logitech Momo, but not for the price difference. The Momo goes for about $100 while the G25 is over $250. It's nice, but not THAT nice. I paid that difference, but wouldn't do it again, knowing what I know now. The G25 housing is plastic.
Summary: There seem to be two camps of people who own this wheel: Those that think it's perfect or nearly perfect, and those that think it's good but has quite a few annoyances that drag it down. I'm in the latter camp.
Pros: I wish I could give this 3 and a half eggs. It's not quite a "B" but it's close. The best part of this whole setup is the quality of the wheel and pedal unit. The wheel feels good, has powerful FF motors, and seems to be as accurate after 1 week use as when the box was opened (which is good, but ...
Cons: The shifter is pure garbage. It latches on the desk just fine but is light, cheap plastic and a marked contrast to the wheel and pedal units (which are heavy, solid, made to last). You have to use a very light touch at all times and even then it feels like it'll break if you get too involved with...
Not nearly as good as other reviews would have you believe

Summary: After purchasing this wheel, I don't know why it gets so many overwhelmingly good reviews. The G25 is poorly constructed, has some design issues and didn't meet my expectations. The wheel itself consists of a plastic housing with a metal wheel.
Summary: It does give some games fits, GTR2 and rFactor gave it serious fits with the FF to set up correctly. That wasn't a very big issue though.
Pros: The dual motor force is great and makes for a very realistic feel. The overall design and feel is very nice.
Cons: Whoever designed this should be fired. There is absolutely nothing to cool the dual motors, therefore if you race for a while at a time, maybe over half an hour, the motors will begin feeling weak because they have no ventilation to even let air come in and out. I had one and blew it out in six m...
Summary: Well I bought the G25 six weeks ago and things went pretty well. The installation was easy, The wheel has plenty of features and the only problem I had was that my desk has a rounded top edge and this caused the wheel and the shifter to not clamp well enough to keep from rocking.
Summary: Das G25 ist der Vorgänger des G27, somit sind die Preise die dafür verlangt werden ein Witz. Ich hatte vor Jahren das G25, nach ca. 5 Jahren gab es einen Defekt in der Elektrik der nicht zu beheben war, da es das Ersatzteil nicht mehr gab.
Summary: Ich hatte mir von diesem Lenkrad mehr erhofft. Aber die Mechanik im Inneren ist doch seehr laut. Und nicht wirklich präzise (fühlbares Spiel der Zahnräder und die Effekte sind auch wie abgestumpft). Für den horrenden Preis dürfte das eigentlich nicht sein.
Summary: Je ne vais pas epiloguer, il y a des dizaines de tests. Mes reproches : Ca rouille un peu, alors qu'appartement sain. Boite de vitesse cheapos alors que le reste est de bonne facture. De bonnes sensations tout de meme pour cette gamme de prix. Mais je ne reprendrai pas cette marque.
