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!
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.
Summary: Bought the wheel about a month ago. And also bought the WheelStand pro, from a company in Poland to mount the wheel to. I was going to buy the evolution seat, but my wife did not like something that bulky in the middle of our bedroom. I mainly use the wheel with GT5 prologue. I have yet to try it with a computer simulation game. Set up was pretty straight forward, the game recognized it right away.
Summary: I am a 63-year-old who has owned a couple of sports cars, but have never been into computer gaming. I purchased the G25 expressly for use on iRacing.com and have been very very pleased with the results. Very solidly build unit. The tactile feedback from the wheel is particually impressive, especially when tuned to feel like the real car. The shifter is a bit wimpy, but merely a matter of getting used to the feel. Have not tried the paddle shifters.
Summary: I have played racing games for years using the Logitech Cordless Rumble Pad 2. While that is a great gaming controller, this steering wheel is what I have really been needing. The wheel makes the experience feel very realistic. I've been using the wheel to play Need for Speed: Pro Street and the wheel provides accuracy and feel for how the car is reacting to the road.
