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...
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!
Pros: This is a really great wheel, great for anybody who loves racing sims. The force feed back is great, somewhat realistic pedal resistance, and lots of buttons to program. And of course the H-pattern shifter.
Cons: Price No resistance in the shifter Alot of cords, needs to be wireless
Summary: While some reviewers say it is the closest thing to real driving I disagree with the generalization. It almost implies it's close and it not, but it is by far the best wheel I have ever tried on a game console or pc.
Summary: You can use a tool called DXTweak to set the pedals up for the most realistic feel I have ever experienced in a race sim controller, especially the clutch. Unlike the clutch of a real car, it takes hold if your foot barely moves from all the way down.
Pros: It has all been said before. This is the best you can get, for the money. Very well made, strudy and very precise.
Cons: Too few buttons on the wheel, only two. Total buttons are reasonable for sure, but rather awkward to use at times. They would have been better to of had most of them on the wheel it's self. This is a case of styling overweighing function.
Summary: I had a Logitech Driving Force Pro for a while, but its lack of an H-pattern shifter and a clutch pedal gave me an excuse to turn to something better - the G25. When I first opened the infamous green Logitech box that housed the product and grabbed out the wheel, I was surprised by a few things: 1.
Summary: ...Then it could just be a matter of clamping down the wheel, connecting two cables (usb+power) to the back (not underneath!) and you're ready to race. As it is, making sure that all four cables are routing out of the bottom of the wheel properly can be quite a hassle.
Pros: In general you're getting a lot of quality materials for the money. The steering wheel feedback significantly adds to the immersion and the feeling isn't far off from the F355 Challenge arcade cabinet. Using the clutch in Live For Speed is very cool, although that's really the only game that take...
Cons: Cheap plastic cap on the shifter, which is an odd choice, given the quality elsewhere. The shifter also clicks between gears and has very little resistance, so it doesn't feel realistic. There are mods to address the aforementioned, but it would be so easy for Logitech to address these issues in ...
Summary: My second experience with this has been a large increase. What it seems like Logitech did(or maybe my first was a complete dud) was dumb down the FF enough that it wouldn't fry itself in a month and a half, because the FF on my new one doesn't get as rough, but is still enough to make my wrists hurt...
Pros: Still a great feel in most games.... see below...
Cons: Motors still do become sluggish... see below...
Summary: The holding adjustment need to be redesign. The grab on the wheel is too short need to enlarge it so it hold better.
Pros: Is like a real steering wheel, pedal @ the shifting gear. You can manually assign the key and you manually adjust the force feedback. Love it, highly recommend for hard core racing gamer out there. Plus fast shipping.
Cons: The wheel is a bit big and hard to stick on the table. The holding adjustment is a bit short wish the designer had a better adjustment on the wheel and the gear. It turns out I have to drill a hole on my computer desk just to hold tight plus the shifting gear. .The shifting is a bit hard, what I ...
