Excerpt: The wheel, and Logitech support are both great. The shifter is a little plasticy, as are the pedels, but they were instantly recognized by iRacing and the Windows 8.1 computer we're using. A good value overall
Excerpt: If you're considering this, chances are you're somewhat serious about racing games - iRacing, Project Cars perhaps? This wheel is probably the best bang for the buck for casual end of the enthusiast spectrum and the pedals feel much better than some of the more entry-level offerings.
Summary: after a long time of weighing my options for the price and the effect i would get from a steering wiheel this was the best choice / value over other brand and after having this for over a month i am happy with my choice
Pros: overall its a good wheel has a nice leather quality very sensitive responds claps to the table nicely easy to setup and install more important its fun
Cons: only con i can think of is that it take some time to get used to the force feed back feels odd at 1st like it needed some powersteering fluid then i got used to it and take ur time geting the right setting for u
Pros: Overall a great wheel, separate pedals, 6-button leather grip wheel and separate stick shift. Install was super simple, force feedback is great, etc.
Cons: After only 2 weeks of use the wheel will go out of alignment after just a few minutes of use. You can re-calibrate it by unplugging/replugging the USB but ya know, that's a pain in the middle of a long race. After researching the problem on the internet I found out it's common for the optical enc...
Summary: Those that complain about the brakes and FFB Being weaker than they should be, I don't know what you're smoking but this is definately a fair amount of resistance compared to the MOMO I just migrated from.
Pros: • Feels VERY well built • Plug-and-play (as always) • Adjustable pedal plates • Heavy pedal stand with carpet grips • Clutch Pedal. need I say more? • Hard-Mounts for those with custom-built gaming rigs and stands • Solid clamping system, Very reminiscent of the old Logitech MOMO. Full 3-clamp se...
Cons: Price. But its cheap compared to what's out there According to what I've found, not supported by my xBox 360. But who cares, I bought it for my PC Shift indicator LEDs somewhat pointless, since they're mounted out of the driver's normal field of view. they barely catch peripheral vision, but I'm ...
Summary: I'll break this review down into a plain old pros, cons and conclusion review to make it as simple as possible. This is going to be a bit long, but I will include everything in the conclusion if you don't want to read the entire in-depth review.
So far, so good (Review for Playstation 2 - PS2 compatibility)

Summary: After a month of checking prices for the G27, I finally pulled the gun on it when I saw it going for $200 on Thanksgiving night (and then $192 over the weekend; I was able to get a refund on the price difference).
Summary: Overall awesome product would reccomend it to anyone but only 4 out of 5 stars mostly because of the clutch thing (I don't think they will ever fix it though)
Pros: Everything feels very sturdy and well build especially the pedals. The feedback on the wheel feels amazing. Very fun to race with.
Cons: The included software is quite nice but does not allow customization for the clutch (brake and gas it does) this becomes problem in games that don't support the clutch as you cannot bind it to something else The included cable management tunnels (I forget what they are called) are a nice feature ...
Summary: Overall great, and can recommend, but there are still a few minor things that I feel can be improved. This is basically a G25 with a whole big bag of improvements, tweaks, new features and overall quality increase. A+, Looking forward to the Gxx, or whatever is next in the sim line-up.
Pros: -Great overall feel, very sturdy -Much quieter due to new gearing, much smoother and odesn't grind quite the way the G25 did when you reefed on it hard -Force Feedback feels great, very powerful and fluid -Fully adjustable rotation distance, great for everything from casual racers to serious simu...
Cons: I took an egg off for a few reasons. 1. Logitech's software is just absolutely terrible. It took me ages to find the right software version (only one, very specific version) that allowed this thing to be programmed and detected. Yes, I'm aware one revision is for mice an keyboard, and another is ...
