Wish I had done my research before purchasing. A few weeks after I bought this my brother bought the Thrustmaster TMX PRO which sells for basically the same price as this or less. After using his wheel I would definitely have bought that.Both wheels do not come with a shifter and both do have the clutch pedal and conical brake mod for more realistic braking feel. Yet on the TMX PRO the mod is easily installed or removed depending on your preference. On the it is permanently installed and requires invasive action to remove which also voids the warranty. I like it though, it was a little too stiff at first but after about 30 hours of racing it has broken in and feels great.Both wheels offer an optional shifter, and the one offers 4 things over the Thrustmaster's, push down reverse, alot quieter, very short throw, and a much lower price. The Thrustmaster one is over twice the price, but it feels better, is made mostly of metal and is harder to accidentally put in to the wrong gear. The Thrustmaster also has a separate gate plate that is included with it to make it a sequential shifter. This is excellent for rally driving where the paddle shifters can be difficult to use. It is however very squishy in sequential mode not having that nice positive click that a sequential shifter should have.The pedals on the are 8 bit giving a total of 256 unique positions. This sounds like a lot, but when running F1 cars where braking needs to be incredibly precise the Thrustmaster 12 bit pedals with 4,096 unique positions are noticeably better. The pedals do grip the carpet better though and look nicer.The wheel, the G920 is prettier by far. The all brushed metal construction with leather wrap looks good and feels good in the hand. The Thrustmaster is mostly plastic with some rubber grips at the 10 and 2 'o clock positions. It looks cheap and initially feels cheap too. It is however about a 1/4 inch larger than the and I like the slight increase in size.Yet this is where the Thrustmaster runs away with the show for me. When actually driving with it the force feedback is noticeably better, its more precise and less notchy. I can't say it is in a whole other league over the , but it is better. The cheapness of the plastic wheel is all but forgotten from the excellent precision feel you get from the force feedback.One thing besides the looks of the that I find better is the wheel base does have bolt holes for hard mounting. The TMX PRO does not. The TMX PRO table mount does work very well though, and it seems just fine with out the hard mount. Both wheel's pedal boxes and optional shifters do have bolt holes for hard mounting.
So far very happy with the G29. I was debating between the or Thrustmaster file a while but pulled the trigger when the G29 was on sale. Wheel seems accurate and so far works well with Dirt Rally and Project Cars. Should be even better when I get a proper wheel stand.
This is the first time I've own a steering wheel for any console and I can say I'm not disappointed. The wheel itself is built solid with good quality materials.I decided to buy it because it was on sale and I desperately needed one to play Forza and enjoy the game to the fullest.After 24 hours of playing, adjusting and fine tuning the settings to my driving style, I'm hooked, it's a blast playing Forza now. I definitely see myself enjoying my new steering wheel for a long time to come. It's a great investment to my gaming set up ??.UPDATE: 11/01/2017I added a video. Don't think about it, just buy it and you won't regret it.In order to fully enjoy your game play you must go to the advanced settings of the the game to adjust the turning radius of the wheel and pedals. If you need help you can search YouTube where you'll find a few videos to show you how to set it up.
Excellent feedback - especially with FM7 configuration. I've increased the resistance to help simulate actual driving a bit more. Only complaint is that I wish that the steering ratio would match each car individually instead of having a global ratio... maybe it does, but it doesn't seem like it. I like the fact that Dirt Rally has a preset configuration which works nicely... and makes the game 500% more enjoyable (you can actually rally now). As a novice racer in real life, this is pretty good... aside from the brake pedal stiffness (which is unreal to get 100% in FM7 w/default settings).Contrary to another review, you should NOT modify the brake pedal - as this may void the warranty and is unnecessary with newer games (I'm unsure of how far back for games you'd need to physically modify the brake pedal).The correct solution is to modify the outer dead zone for deceleration to about 50-70% -- you can test the optimal setting by driving and watching the red bar on the bottom-right hand of your HUD in FM7 -- this shows you braking pressure. If you're braking as hard as you physically want to brake, and the red box is not filling up, then lower your outer deceleration dead zone a bit more. Tada! The same applies to some other games as well.
Just received this since it dropped in price to $203. Works great in WIN 10 64bit, Project Cars 2. Downloaded the latest Gaming Software and it set up everything without any hassle. I haven't plugged the G29 in to my PS4 yet so I'll update this review as I use the wheel. The stiff brake pedal is no problem for me and I actually prefer it over a looser pedal; to me it feels more like a brake pedal should. I don't feel that I have to jam my foot that much harder but instead it gives me a much more progressive control over braking. I upgraded from a Driving Force GT which still works great and has been a great wheel for me; I've had it for years, can't remember how long and it also worked flawlessly in WIN 10, so I'm hoping this wheel will last as long. One tip I would give people concerning warranties; if you used a credit card to purchase many times your CC company will extend your warranty by as much as two years. I use a VISA and they offer this. So if your original warranty runs out your credit card company will probably offer you an extended warranty beyond the manufacturers. Check it out on your CC company's website. Also, sometimes they will price match in that if you find a price lower within 90 days they will reimburse you the difference. I haven't used this service but it is stated on my CC company's website and I have talked with a rep on the phone about it. Do your homework and check out their website to see what they're providing you as a card holder.Update June 30, 2018. The Wheel still works great. What I've found is that it doesn't like to be plugged in to any other USB other than the one I first installed it on. The Gaming Software doesn't like this either so just plug in to the same USB slot every time. Also, in Project Cars 2 I actually had to assign the pedals to an axis before they would be recognized. After assigning them they worked fine and I was able to calibrate. I've been using the wheel a lot and feel it's been an upgrade from my Driving Force GT; which is also a great wheel that I'm going to hold on to. I also still like the brake pedal the way it came and don't feel I have to remove it. I have had no problems using it and I still prefer it over a less stiff pedal. I still highly recommend this wheel and am having a great time using it. If I have problems I'll update this review.Update July 10 2018. Wheel works great still. I installed a USB 3.0 card in my computer and the LG29 plugged in to that with no problems. However, when I booted up the computer today the wheel didn't power on and did not show up in the Log Gaming Profile. I plugged it in to a USB 2.0 port and only the wheel was recognized, not the pedals. I then plugged it in to the original USB 2.0 port when I first installed the wheel and everything came up recognized. I think it likes to be plugged in to exactly the same port it was installed on. Wheel still works great and I'm really enjoying it. I believe this will work fine with USB 3.0, you just might have to unplug it and then plug it back in every time. I'm choosing to keep it plugged in all the time to the original USB 2.0 port.Update July 9, 2018: Wheel works flawlessly on Win 10 and I'm able to plug it in to just about any USB port, both 2.0 and 3.0, and have it recognized. Like any wheel you'll need to tune it to your liking. I'm very happy with this wheel.
I really like this wheel, though I wish I didn't have to buy it. I already have a g27 with the shifter that cost quite a bit less than this wheel without the shifter. I realize this isn't a review about the price though, so I'll move on and talk about the wheel.First, the setup for the wheel really could not have been easier on my Xbox One or my PC. I hooked it up to my Xbox first. I plugged it in and it worked. I didn't have to do anything else for the xbox to recognize it. I launched Forza 6, set the steering option to "Simulation" and I was good to go! I ended up tweaking the deadzones in forza a bit more to my liking, but that was just software settings, and small ones at that.For my PC, I downloaded and installed the latest gaming software before I plugged the USB cable into the PC. Once it was installed, I plugged in the USB cable, the wheel spun around a bit and it was ready to go. I launched Assetto Cora and to my surprise, found a premade config for the g920 with and without the shifter. I selected the one without the shifter, went into the controller setup wizard, and all controls responded perfectly. I don't know if I had to go into the controller setup wizard, but I did just in case. After that, I launched a race (in manual shifting mode) and ran a few laps around Mugello just to see how it was. There were no issues at all. Everything worked just as you would expect.For anyone that has ever owned a g27, you will instantly be familiar with this wheel. It feels very much the same, but with the extra buttons for the xbox control. The wheel is the same size, though it now has a flat bottom The leather feels great, just like it did on the g27. Even the wheel base is identical to the g27. This is a good thing because that was rock solid on everything I clamped it to. A noticeable difference from the g27 is that the wheel no longer has the LED shift indicator lights. I understand that xbox games may not support this, but it would be nice to still be able to use them for PC games.The wheel itself is very quiet. I can't imagine anyone having any complaints about the noise from this. One minor thing I don't like about the wheel is the LED light just above the xbox button. It's REALLY bright. I ended up putting some black electrical tape over it and you can still see the light through the tape!The pedals look exactly the same as the g27 but with black pistons instead of red. One thing about he pedals though, as you can see in almost every review out there, is that the brake pedal is amazingly stiff. So stiff that I had to put the back of my chair up against my couch to keep from pushing myself backwards just to get the car to slow down at all. I've never driven an F1 race car, but I have never had to press any brake pedal as hard as this one to get 100% travel. It was ridiculously stiff. This is all because of a small piece of rubber that is inserted into the break pedal spring to give it "progressive" pressure. In reality, it ended up being almost no pressure to start with, then a massive amount of pressure from about 20% all the way to 100%. It was not gradual at all. You could clearly tell when the pedal hit the rubber. Real break pedals don't work like that. After 2 hours of racing, my foot hurt and all I could think about during the race is preparing myself to brake HARD on the next corner.It is a simple fix though (see my photos). *Doing this will void your warranty.* It took me about 20 minutes to take the base apart, take the piece of rubber out of the spring, and put it all back together. This made an amazing difference. All three pedals now feel exactly like the pedals on the g27. The brake pedal is still more stiff than the accelerator or clutch, but not so stiff that it's almost useless. After a few laps, I had stopped thinking about braking and just started thinking about racing again.To the credit of the pedal base though, it stuck to my carpet like crazy. I easily pushed my chair backwards but the base never slid a bit. It stuck to my carpet like crazy.This could have been a 5 star rating if I didn't have to mod it to get the brake pedal to work normally and if it had the shifter included. You can use the g27 shifter with this wheel, but I plan on selling my g27 and I can't really sell it without the shifter.
I placed an order on Sept. 24 and arrived on Sept. 26. First, I'm leaving a product review from an sim enthusiast point of view. This is not my only wheel, now on to the testament.I've owned wheels for many years and still, to this day they are still functional. Not only are they reliable but they can be customisable and fun.This G29 for PS4 and PC feels alot like the G27 but a bit improved. It feels good and it's very quiet compared to it's predecessors. When Force Feedback kicks in it rattles but not as much as the G25 and G27, the gears feel somewhat pleasurable when taking corners.Pedals are way better than the G25 and G27, but not as much as the Thrustmaster t3pa pedals or the Fanatec Clubsports pedals. Clutch feels like a modern clutch, brakes feel alittle like in real life but requires mods to make it feel premium, gas pedal feels perfect. All in all it's worth the upgrade from the G25 or G27 pedals.Shifter, i cannot testify if it is better then the old ones since i'm using the G27's shifter. G27 H shifter is compatible with the G29, but the extra buttons won't work but that's okay with me. I have not tested the G25 H and sequential shifter on the G29 but i'm sure it'll work.The Paddle shifters click louder on the G29 and feels alittle heavy, not much improvement here. They are very responsive and sturdy, it will take a hammer to break them.Pros:Better handling wheelExtra buttons on the steering wheel (you don't have to use a controller)Leather wrapped steering wheelOverall better pedals then its predecessorsIncluded are clutch, brake and gas brushed aluminum pedalsWheel, paddle shifters and pedals feel sturdyDual gear Force Feedback motorsBest wheel for the moneyOverall very reliable product and easy to maintainCons:A little deadzone but not that noticeableSmall wheel rimGear motors (most of the time the Force Feedback feels unrealistic and it clunks)Feels plastiqueJudge for yourself, the pros outweighs the cons, but that's just my personal opinion. If you're on a budget and want a very ready to race and reliable wheel, and you are either a Sim enthusiast or game a lot this is the best option out there. If money is not the problem you should consider other hardcore brands, but make sure to get a warranty as premium wheels will break more often than the s. Overall (i know, i've used this word way too much) I'm very happy and satisfied with my purchase and this wheel completed my setup for GT Sport, Assetto Corsa, Project Cars 2 and so on. I truly recommend this wheel, it will last you for a very long time, just like my old DF, G25 and G27s.
So i bought this to work in conjunction with Project cars in Oculus Rift VR.The wheel itself is wrapped in leather like it would be in a real sports car, and its hand stitched! It feels wonderful and natural when you're gripping it. I love the attention to detail did here, like the shift lights on the top of the wheel. On top of that the wheel has easy to find buttons (important when you are wearing a VR headset). Everything is where 'it should be' so to speak. The wheel itself connects to the desk/table/whatever via two clamps that you can screw with some hidden hand screws. The one thing I am not thrilled about with this wheel is the paddle shifters. They do make a 'clicking' sound when that are actuated but, you cannot feel it. This clicking noise isnt helpful at all when in VR since youre most likely wearing headphones, without the tactile feel of a 'bump' its sometimes a little hard to know if you pushed it far enough. Thankfully you can hear it in the engine while in game.The Pedals work great on carpeted floor, just make sure you drop down the spikes on the bottom of it. I cant comment on how they work on a hard surface, but i imagine there definitely needs to be some more rubber under it. As for the feel, well the clutch/accelerator pedal feel smooth and linear. For the brake however, its got a lot more resistance, especially near the end of the stroke. Its a nice addition from previous set ups honestly. Its how it would feel in a real car when you stomp on the brake pedal. I wish it also had some force feedback to simulate ABS for cars that have it, but i think thats just wishful thinking on my part... and besides race cars generally dont have ABS anyway.All in all i think this is a great wheel for anyone attempting to use with VR.
I have had my G920 wheel for 11 months now and have logged about 33,xxx miles on Forza Motorsports 6 with it. It is a great product but it does require some common sense to get it properly configured for optimal operations. The brake pedal is stiff, which is great however it needs to be compensated for by adjusting your in game settings. On FM6 I run my deceleration outside dead zone at 70 and it works phenomenally.The remainder of your settings are personal preference, but I will post them here to help others. To get to these settings on FM6 you need to go to: Options: Controls: Advanced wheel controls (by pressing X button in controls menu)Steering:inside deadzone =1outside deadzone = 100Acceleration :Inside deadzone = 0Outside deadzone = 100DecelerationInside deadzone = 0Outside deadzone = 70ClutchInside deadzone = 10Outside deadzone = 50Hand Brakeinside deadzone = 0outside deadzone = 50Vibration scale = 50Force Feedback scale = 100Degrees of rotation = 420 (again personal preference)In game I run Normal Steering. I find Sim steering very challenging and hard to predict and catch power on oversteer.The remainder of assists are all off.***WHEN DRIFTING TURN VIBRATION TO 0*** I had to send my first wheel back to for warranty after 3 months. I suspect this is due to running a vibration setting when drifting and the wheel was constantly vibrating. It would get warm and I believe it shook it self apart. I have been drifting on 0 vibration for 6 months now with no issues. TThe warranty process was very straightforward and they were easy to deal with.
so yesterday, October 13th, 2018; it was raining pretty heavily in Phoenix. I was coming home from work on the free way when suddenly on the way i made a lane change and hit a big puddle of water and lost traction on the right side tires and started to hydroplane. Thankfully I've been using this steering wheel to play Forza and drifting was my go to. So naturally I began to gather a certain feeling when using the steering wheel, what to do, and how to do it. its sounds kinda cringe but when the hydroplane event commenced the first thing that i thought about was Forza.. therefore when i was sliding left and right in the middle of the freeway next to other people, i knew exactly how to handle the steering wheel... and that is how this product saved my life, it gave me the chance to practice driving.... or... atleast to a certain extent.
Been wanting to get a good racing wheel for a long time. After trying to decide between this and Thrustmasters option I ending up going with based on great past experiences with their products (not to say Thrustmaster is bad I bought one of their joysticks for my dad for flight sims and he really like it). The quality is really great for this wheel, and I especially like the medal paddle shifters and pedals.The force feedback is taking some getting use to, but this is my first wheel (I usually play racing games with a controller). Mainly using this to play Project Cars 2 and Forza. I'm no expert but it works well for me, I'm really just trying to get over the learning curve of moving from a controller to an actual wheel. I did not pick up the shifter for right now. I think in the future I may end up getting a actual seat and what not since just playing in my office chair is not super comfortable based on sitting position.Now this is beating a dead horse at this point, but I really cannot stand the break pedal, and that's because I have to literally stand on it to make it work. Seriously who at thought making it that stiff was a good idea. The break pedal in my own car isn't even that hard to depress. At the very least they should've made it adjustable. I may inevitably do the brake pedal mod but I'm torn because I don't really want to void the warranty. Seriously a big mistake on 's part for doing that.Overall, though, I'd still recommend this wheel. The good outweighs the bad
My first gaming wheel. I had no idea the difference it would make. I hoped it would improve the experience of my driving simulators, but couldn't imagine that it would transform them the way it has.Within a couple minutes of driving American Truck Simulator, a friend said, "Obviously this is a special kind of chair, too." It was just a regular office chair, but the force feedback of this wheel is so well done that my brain is fooled into thinking I'm moving. In my setup the wheel is placed directly in from of a 40 inch screen, which adds to the illusion that I'm looking out a windshield. Still, I never got motion sickness playing with a gamepad even when playing directly in front of the screen. After about 25 hours with the g920, I'm still often slightly disoriented when I brake, and my inner ear disagrees with my mind's assertion that I'm decelerating.It's hard to overstate how much more control you have with the g920 instead of a controller. Not only is it more precise, but it gives you realistic feedback that helps you learn and make decisions. In Assetto Corsa I feel myself skidding or fishtailing before I see it, and even when spinning out of control, the tugging of the wheel helps me understand the forces on the tires, and how best to right myself.I should add that the shifter is absolutely worth the extra money. With it, the third pedal functions just like a real clutch. Driving a stick shift is fun, and also gives the driver more tactile information about the speed and handling of the vehicle. Like the wheel and pedals, the shifter inceases immersion and makes it easier to stay in control.If like me you have them on a hard floor, you'll need the pedals braced against something - for me the wall. The clamps on the wheel and gear shift work very well. Construction is solid and attractive. I would like a hat switch, thumb stick, or mouse within reach of my fingers for looking around in game, but it's well worth occasionally having to take my right hand off the wheel to look with my mouse, in order to experience everything else this device offers.
I love this thing. It is built very well, feels great, looks great, easy to set up. I can feel the road under my car in Forza Horizon 4 like never before. Pedals stay put on the floor, and they feel very... well, real. This is automobile quality gear. Hell, my 2013 Sonic has a cheaper feeling steering wheel than my computer desk.My concerns, and what a possible buyer should know:- It is hard as (insert profanity) to drive with this bad boy. I am not taking a star off for this. This is GOOD. However, it made me realize just how casual I am about my driving games. When the back end goes out (which it will due to what I mention below) the amount of maneuvering you have to do in the 900 degree steering range is crazy. Realistic, YES. Accessible to the casual / semi serious enthusiast? More than likely not. Be warned, your gameplay WILL suffer hard if you are coming to this from a controller. Will take some serious time investment.- If you have a rolling chair with no carpeting underneath (and this is my personal problem with using this thing, again not docking for this) you WILL move backwards. There is real resistance to these pedals, mostly the brake. This is not a fault of the product, this is just reality. I think it is great that it is this way since it is a result of the product feeling VERY realistic.- Brake pedal sensitivity (and I am docking a star for this one). No matter how much I tweak the settings in the companion software, I can NOT get to full brake lock without curling my toes around the pedal and JAMMING it to the stand. I am driving in Forza Horizon 4 with no ABS, and I simply CANNOT lock up the wheels. This is very frustrating for me, as it makes cornering more of a challenge than the new control scheme already is.- No Vibration Feedback: I can understand in hindsight why a wheel clamped to a desk wouldn't have rumble. However, that is hindsight. I have serious trouble keeping the back end in control when I don't get the rumble feedback I am used to in my XBOX controller. The dual-motor force feedback usually isn't doing much until the car is in full-tilt oversteer. This makes driving rather tricky. This is lending itself to the lost star - but on it's own doesn't warrant that since Rumble was not an advertised feature. You know what happens when you assume!OTHER GRIPES (these lend to the one lost star):- ABXY (and PS equivalent) are a bit of a reach for my thumb, and I have large hands. I find myself frequently pressing B (or the "cancel" equivalent on PS) when reaching for the A (or "accept) equivalent on PS) button.- The mounting clamps semi-frequently experience a sort of slight release under heavy steering input (at least when mounted to a standard desktop) and it makes an incredibly frightening POP noise, however continues to work normally with no damage. The mounting knobs just pop up out of their "locked" position when this happens.- At a $400 USD price point, I would have hoped the paddle shifters were column-mounted. However they are not, they are wheel-mounted. This makes for some guesswork if changing gear mid-corner. This is big for me, as I am accustomed to changing gears when preparing to exit a corner.TL:DR: Some minor frustrations, but many are a fault of my setup. A couple ergonomic issues, but for experienced players or those with a knack for reprogramming muscle-memory, not a huge issue. Would advise a demo at any sort of shop that stocks these if possible, before buying. If I had done this I likely wouldn't have purchased.

First a frame of reference. I use this for Gran Turismo Sport on the PS4. I previously had a Driving Force Pro from Logitec as well. I've played each iteration of Gran Turismo since the original Gran Turismo (it was not called GT1) and have used a wheel on that game starting w/ Gran Turismo 3 (a-spec) and have logged . . . about a billion miles.I love this wheel dearly. I'll talk about the pedals separately.The operation is very smooth and it's much quieter than my old DFP. Metal paddle shifters are wonderful; I'll add a shifter once it's supported in a GT game. There is a blue metal band on the top of the wheel making it easy to find center (for those of us who care about that) so it's not a line of tape that will come loose or fade over time. For me it's precise as all get out. After using a controller for the first few months I was ecstatic about how I could place my car around the track. But it won't make anyone a championship driver . . . you'll just have more precision.There is a full complement of buttons on the wheel including (bottom to top) a PS button, Options button and Share button below the center of the wheel. It may take some time to get used to; I've hit the share button while trying to pause the game during a practice session. That's my only quibble. The rotary dial can be used to select the level while the +/- button changes what setting you're manipulating during a race; you can remap the wheels buttons in the options menu.Getting my PS4 to recognize my wheel off the bat was easy . . . once I figured out just what to do. I leave my wheel plugged in, turn on the PS4 from the unit itself, then �C once the blue screen comes up �C press the PS button on the wheel. I mention this because initially I was using my controller to wake up the PS4 and it would take quite some time before the wheel could be used. I hope that helps anyone who's run into the same issue.NOW ABOUT THE PEDAL SETUPI kept this separate because of all the reviews mentioning the pedals. The gas offers very little resistance in comparison to the brakes. The brakes may feel very stiff to others; I myself was somewhat prepared due to the reviews. Compared to my old DFP, the effort required to operate the brake pedal is gargantuan . . . but that's not a problem. It feels much more like the brakes I've used in my (limited) time on the track. The brake has more resistance than the ones in my Buick, but I was able to get used to that. For me it has a much more sporting feel.**UPDATE 7/29**After some checking it appears the rubber inside the brake - which causes that resistance - is supposed to simulate a load cell. The brake has a certain amount of travel to a point, then you apply more pressure and modulate how much stopping power you get. It's a bit grabby to work with at first, but I REALLY REALLY love it now. Just took the better part of an afternoon to make it part of my routine. Trail braking is easier too. Back to the original review...*******In game I've noticed something. When using a controller, I have less braking power, but with the pedals �C when I really stand on the brakes �C the stopping ability is increased. I credit that to the game itself, recognizing what a driver can do with her/his feet vs. the amount of travel available w/ the triggers on the controller. It definitely took some getting used to but the amount of modulation I get from the gas AND the brakes has lowered my lap times tremendously.Lastly, the price of this is awesome in comparison. A $700.00 wheel is not in my budget, and this is the one I'd decided to target. It came up on Prime Day and I snapped it up . . . but I'd planned on buying it eventually at the regular price. It's smooth and quiet, precise and a great wheel. Worth every penny.Now I just need a correct wheel stand! The X-Celerator(?) Big Boy stand I have worked for the DFP; the pedals on the G29 are way too big.TL;DR:Great wheel, Brake pedal takes effort to push but it's worth it, HIGHLY recommended for price.Hope this helps.

This may have been a bad batch. Mine worked great the first day. The next day of use, the wheel started making a loud whine, loud enough to wake up my wife. It still operated but the slight burned plastic smell and whine made me return it as I play, most of the time, at night. The previous night she said couldn't tell I was using it. I can't blame the seller or product, like I said probably a bad batch. However, as quality control seems to be a problem, this has opened my eyes to another product. The Fanatec systems.
While this is an expensive set of PS4 controllers (wheel and pedals); you get some decent quality for your buck.The Wheel:Good size, all of the standard PS4 buttons (with four additional programmable if your game allows it), nice tension, and POWERFUL force-feedback.The Pedals:Solid design, good tension, nice base, light weight.Overall:Great wheel-and-pedal if a bit expensive. The forcefeed back is really powerful if the PS4 game can drive it...the strongest FF I've found was in F1-2017. The force-feedback in F1 on PS4 is strong enough to make the wheel very heavy to where my shoulder is fatigued after a race for two. There's a bit of play and looseness in the steering wheel and it's not as smooth as the more high-end racing SIM wheels. There also bit of a "grinding" feel as the belt works against the force-feedback that doesn't feel realistic and can be distracting; but it's about as good as you are going to get without paying nearly $1k for a professional sim controller.My one minor criticism is with the C-clamps they use for the desk mounts. While the clamps are fairly strong and durable, they use a spring tension knob on top which doesn't lend itself to getting this thing really locked down. It's extremely frustrating to have this thing pop off in your lap while you are racing. I would have preferred if they had designed the c-clamps to use an allen-wrench or T-Knob so you can get this tighter. But it works with some effort.My suggestion for use: take a gripping pad (or a glove) and wrench down the knobs on top as tight as you can get it. You can get the clamp pretty tight without breaking them, so use some muscl.. Additionally, I use a piece of double-sided carpet tape on the bottom-back area (where the cables come out) to give it a bit of extra stick to the desk. This helps keep the back end from lifting up during the race and adds a bit of rigidity to the whole thing. I'd also suggest adding some softer rubber feet to the bottom as the hard plastic ones will rattle your desk and annoy anyone who isn't actually playing with you.Other than that, my other criticism would be with the fact that they made the back edge of the pedal platform curved��which looks nice, but if you brace it against a straight surface (like a wall or desk frame), then the curved edge causes the pedal platform to rotate a bit.Ultimately, to get the most bang out of this, you need a more permanent mounting solution (like one of the racing mounts); but it gets the job done and is a blast to use in game.
I primarily purchased this and the optional shifter for Forza 4 right after release. I purchased it to feel more immersed into the game play instead of using the game pad. After receiving the unit(s) and installed on a driving wheel stand, I installed it on my PC. Windows 10 picked up the device with no problem. I calibrated the wheel, pedals and shifter using the Windows 10 gaming utility.After configuration, Forza 4 picked up the wheel, shifter and pedals. However, the PC version of the game didn't recognize the button types as Xbox buttons. It displayed the numerical values instead. Not sure why, but all peripheral component buttons worked. I had to memorize what button did what game function but I used the keyboard also for specific functions within the game. When I attach the wheel/pedal and shifter to the Xbox One, all of the buttons work and display as designed.One of the Need for Speed games on EA did not work at all with the Wheel. No controls worked at all, to include the pedals, the brake pedal was reverse, the clutch was gas, etc. Basically unplayable. That is why I rated the Versatility a 2. Website searches showed that others had the same problem I was having with the game.For the price paid for the wheel/pedals and shifter I would figure would work with all driving sims games but doesn't. I enjoy the immersion of game play (ones that work) with the wheel and hope that other new driving sims will support these peripheral devices.
This is a really cool racing wheel. While I haven't used any other brands, this being my first, I can't compare it to anything else. Using it in games like F1 2016, Dirt Rally and Project cars, creates for a very solid experience with plenty of feedback.For each game I generally have to tweak the brake pedal to reach full braking power a little earlier as it is hard to fully depress the pedal. It feels nice though, but games generally seem to expect you be able to fully depress the pedal to get 100% brake and that's pretty difficult to do. Fortunately it's pretty easy to fix in each game.
I'm not some e-sports celebrity racer or anything, so you can be sure I don't know what I'm talking about, but this wheel kicks ass.Many folks comment about the brake pedal mod, and, honestly, yes, you need to do this, but its simple and there are many videos on YouTube. The brake pedal damper is way to heavy. Cut down the rubber stopper to your liking and you're good to go.Forces in the wheel are generally lag free and realistic (depending on the game, and your preferences). Control is crisp and accurate in all axis'. Build quality is surprisingly good, easily the sturdiest controller I've owned in 30 years of buying this stuff.I love the carpet spikes, the pedals never move no matter how hard I jam on them.In short, its a really good set.
I previously had been using my old geforce racing wheel that was advertised for Gran Turismo 4 way back in 2004-2005 for pc games. That wheel worked fine as it was the first to offer 900 degrees or rotation. However, the build quality of the pedals was too archaic to handle daily use and constantly had sensor issues. However, upgrading was always a big financial decision that kept me away from upgrading. Luckily this wheel went on sale and I did not hesitate in buying it.The first major question was xbox version or ps4 version. Both work with PC but the ps4 version offers more buttons. This is a plus if you play racing sims and like to make in-car adjustments often, or race open-wheel cars like F1. However, I would take into consideration if you also play home consoles as well as PC.The only issue I have with this wheel, and it's minor, is that when looking at the wheel you can clearly see what button is labeled what. It's easy to build muscle memory for button placement (for me it was since the placement hasn't changed much in 15yrs) but when you connect to the PC and play a racing sim I run into the same issue. Every game just lables the buttons as 1-20+. Some games identify this wheel and preset the buttons, but switching them up in the menus or trying trying to memorize what button is 12 vs when button is 5 is annoying when you realize the layout on the wheel isn't exactly "in order". Buttons 1-12 flow in a nice, generalize pattern on the wheel, but once you get to around button 18 through (i think) 24.,... things start to be randomly spread around the wheel and you lose track where they are.
I've had this on my wish list for a while and when it went on sale I had to jump on it. This is a sub-$200 controller and is overpriced when not on sale.While the build quality is very good, the materials used - and subsequently the cables included, are sub-optimal at best. The leather is especially cheap and ill-fitted in some spots.It seems no matter what your setup is, the main USB cable isn't quite long enough and requires an extension to prevent a clothesline situation between your wheel and console. Same issue with the power cable. It is simply not long enough to use without an extension.The included wire management is adequate but is really ineffective if you don't have the wheel mounted to a Playseat-style bracket. If you've got this clamped down to a table, chances are you've also got some cable management issues.As far as how the wheel works, it is plug-and-play for console and PC, though PC users get the option of software fine-tuning for the best experience.The wheel itself is nice enough to hold on to, but the switches/buttons feel very cheap and the paddles, while they are metal and large in size, have an unpleasant feel around the edges and have a mushy travel that results in less-than-satisfying gear changes.The pedals are decent. Spacing is a bit too close for the sake of being compact, but is only a problem for big feet I suppose. The pedals need to be mounted to a bracket, otherwise they are pretty useless. The very aggressive carpet grip on the bottom plate can prevent them from moving under pressure, but there's NO WAY you aren't going to destroy your carpets after few uses. The brake pedal is progressively difficult to depress, in an effort to mimic real brake pressure, but it is just too stiff. If a game doesn't allow for adjusting dead zones, you'll never be able to reach 100% activation of the axis without standing on the pedal.For the standard price it should definitely include the novelty gear shift. A clutch pedal with paddle shifters is so unintuitive and is really more about bragging rights to say your controller has a dedicated clutch. If you don't also have the gear shifter then it is unlikely you'll ever use the clutch.Overall, I enjoy this controller because I bought it on sale.
Overall, solid racing setup. It starts as a good setup that with some modifications and calibrations make it a great setup. If you're not sure if racing is your thing, get this. It's one of the cheapest full setups you'll find for the money and won't totally break the bank. I for one will probably upgrade, but this bridges the gap nicely.The Wheel - Very good quality materials, paddle shifters responsive and sturdy, decent force feedback. Since I use this for Project Cars 2, I applied the almost mandatory Jack Spade profile, which made the FF excellent. Others have stated this saved the game for them.The pedals - Sturdy, somewhat heavy plastic base, good quality pedals with a good throw... except...the brake pedal. At first I thought it was broken, but then did some research. was trying to emulate a real brake pedal which has more resistance. I just did a recalibrate on it and it does indeed feel more realistic. I give light pressure for normal braking, and if I need to slam the brakes and lock up the wheels, I have to put some leg into it. I like that. People it's not hard, there is calibration and there are mods. Luckily, I didn't need to mod it.Shifter - Not too impressed, however I cannot beat up too bad, as this only cost 60 bones. It has an okay quality. It is very loose between the grooves and I frequently miss gears because of this. There is a relatively cheap mod to fix this as well. It also does not have a sequential mode like other shifters. There is a way to make this happen too, but it involves rubber bands and such. I will most likely sell this and get a shifter with both modes with better materials.
This is a good wheel but there are a couple things you should know before buying:- The brake is extremely stiff. This is clearly meant to be mounted to a racing seat because, sitting in a normal desk chair, I could not press the brake at all without rolling backwards. I don't think I could even stand on it. This was sort of easily fixed (you have to unscrew the pedals and remove a small rubber block in the spring) but still way more work than I wanted to be able to use all 3 pedals- The paddle shifters are starting to work sporadically after about 6 months of use. I don't even actually use them that much (usually do H-shifter races) so I was kind of surprised when I tried them the other day and found only about 1 in 5 clicks to actually register
Really like the wheel. I used a MOMO for many, many years, and in fact my dad still has his, and this was the natural purchase when I needed a new one. The only reason I rate it 4 stars instead of a perfect 5 is the fact that there's a slight squeak in the wheel when it turns to the left. It's not super loud - But loud enough that it's noticeable and distracting. I'm tossing between emailing for a replacement, or trying to take it apart and grease it but void any warranty there might be on it.Other than that, the wheel is great. It's a great size, even for someone large (I'm 6'3" and wear XXL gloves), and the pedals work great. Force feedback feels very natural so far playing Project Cars and Dirt Rally. The price tag would be my only hold up on purchasing it - But, catch a good sale, eh?
I bought this mainly for Euro and American Truck Simulators. It works great for both and has great wheel controls in the options. I noticed the description of this wheel keeps mentioning "force feedback" but I don't believe it said anything about the wheel being mechanically driven.. meaning theres an actual motor behind the wheel that has 100% control. Through that motor, you can control wheel stiffness, centering, etc. There is no spring that launches the wheel back to the original position. I was pretty surprised by this when I plugged it in for the first time and the wheel spun all the way in one direction, then all the way in the other direction, then back to center. I assume is was an auto-calibration. But it did all that without me doing anything other than plugging it in. It's pretty advanced stuff and knocks the socks off of the original "Farming Wheel" that this is replacing. As far as the brake petal, I can see how the stiffness could get annoying in a racing game where you need a fast response, but its great for simulator games. The stiffness prevents you from slamming the brakes when you're coming up to a stop. It makes for a nice and smooth stop that you have a lot of control over.
Great product so far. I love the feel of the leather (or leather-ish) wheel material, and the aluminum paddles and pedals. The mounting clamps work quite well, although I did end up getting a stand so I have a little more control over positioning. Also nice that it has 3 pedals, so I don't have to replace those in addition to buying a shifter if/when I decide to go full manual.Force feedback seems quite good, although it depends on the game. Forza 6 is kind of "meh" - I still think that game works better on a controller. However, Dirt Rally feels incredible. It's so good, I honestly think this was worth the purchase for that one game alone. Controller steering was always a little wonky in that game, but this has made it a great experience.
Another great product from as per usual. Lot's of great features and feedback system is fairly decent. My only complaints would be their gaming software will not detect the wheel no matter how many times I re-install the drivers and software (sigh) or any other number of troubleshooting steps I can find online. However the wheel works flawlessly in game so not a deal breaker. The other would be more of a personal preference and honestly applies to every wheel system out there. The peddles are too close together and the break peddle should be a horizontal pad like what we have in most vehicles. The experienced drivers instinct has the break and gas hard mapped in our subconscious so moving to the break from gas on gaming peddles easily results in hitting the gas and break both. With all the effort that has gone into making these systems come as close as possible to real driving; why not make the peddle layout/spacing more realistic or at least adjustable so we can decide for our selves? I guess it's more of a nice to have then a must have but damn it would be nice to not have to re-program my breaking reflexes :).
This racing setup has brought me HOURS of fun. I was so surprised by how responsive and how well this thing actually works. There's a pretty big learning curve and takes a while to get the hang of and get used too but once you do you will have SO much fun. Be patient because it's a little tough at first but once I really learned how to race and drift with this setup I can't pull myself away from the game. (Forza Horizon 3) You really have to grip the steering wheel when you're driving because it moves, jerks and feels real when you hit bumps and hills and stuff. All in all this racing setup is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. I would also recommend investing in the racing stand (in picture) because you can really bolt everything down and have a nice solid setup. Ever since I was a little kid I dreamed of having this exact racing setup in my house so needless to say I love it and I have a lot of fun with it. Good buy!
I've always wanted a steering wheel with a 3rd clutch pedal and manual shifter. I've had the cheap console ones before with the shifter that only goes up and down, and those have not been cutting it for me.Managed to get this wheel bundled with the shifter during one of the sales, and so far, I've been pretty satisfied with this wheel. One thing I noticed with my cheaper wheels was that I always had issues with oversteer and spinning out. This wheel wasn't much different in that regard. When I first jumped on Forza with my 600hp S14 Silvia, I kept spinning out, and couldn't drift like I could with a controller. I do think that this might just be something to get acquainted to as when I went to a slower car, I didn't spin out nearly as much and eventually got better at it.In terms of the quality of the materials, they don't seem too bad. I will say though that my wheel already had a tiny bit of peeled color on the middle blue strip on top of the wheel. Not a big deal to me, but for someone more anal about aesthetics, this is something to note. Maybe it's just a defect on mine, but it makes me question the durability of the middle strip. The outer part of the wheel seems durable so far. At first I thought the stitching was slightly frayed, but it turns out that they just left the ends sticking out a bit. So far, it seems like this wheel should last a while. But it isn't a big deal if it doesn't as you can easily swap the wheel with real car wheels using adapters that you can find online.The pedals I have no complaints about at all. I'm completely satisfied with the pedals.The shifter I felt was a bit light. I was able to swap shift knobs easily by getting an adapter/taping the shaft so a normal shift knob would fit. With my heavier metal shift knob, I like how it feels more. For me, getting into reverse is a bit finicky as I sometimes don't push down enough and the game doesn't register it as reverse.But overall, I'm pretty happy with this bundle. If you're able to get the bundle when its on sale, it is definitely a great value and I'd recommend it if you want to get into sim racing or just want a wheel with a full manual setup.
This is primarily a review for PC racing games. I tried using it for PS4 but I wasn't willing to buy the extra stand. I found the overall build of the wheel to be very sturdy. I was very impressed by the pedals which are themselves mostly metal. I also appreciate the extra carpet spikes on the bottom of the pedal stand that keep it from moving. The pedals also have a progressive feel that is very similar to real brakes. My main problem with the wheel is the feeling of the gears inside the wheel that provide the force feedback. When you first play something like Assetto Corsa, the feedback is intense to the point where it shakes the wheel when centered. What results is a jarring grinding feel as the wheel shifts back and forth. I highly recommend dialing the force feedback down to make it feel more like a real car. Overall, I expected a more fluid motion in the wheel when driving. Then again I'm not really disappointed, I've been able to use the wheel in multiple games and it has enhanced the experience over the typical controller.
I've been using this for a month, and I love it. It makes driving games incredibly immersive and fun. Forza Motorsports 7 allows you to change the amount of brake throw that is needed for 100% braking, which is extremely useful with the G920's stiffer pedal. The feel of the pedal is great, but it's extremely hard to depress the pedal fully, especially if the pedals and chair are not fastened together in some kind of cockpit rig. Not all games allow you to change the "curve" of the brake pedal in that way. Assetto Corsa--which is quite fun, and a little more of a sim feel--lacks that adjustment in the xbox version (the PC version has it), so I'm unable to reach more than about 90% braking force in the game, which has a huge impact for any competitive driving. Project Cars II also allows you to change the brake range, but as far as I can tell, The Crew does not. I believe Forza Horizons 3 & 4 share the same "deadzone" setting that Forza Motorsports has. Unfortunately, without a wheel connected to your system, generally you cannot see the relevant settings to check if they exist in a game you enjoy.One thing to note about this wheel--as long as it is connected to your xbox and to power, when you turn on the xbox (without even touching the wheel), the wheel will run through a calibration, where it rotates fully in both directions. If you have a chair pushed in against the wheel when that happens, it can get a little exciting. I've been careful to keep things clear of the wheel, but I can imagine the leather wrapping could get pretty scuffed up on accident this way. Simply disconnect the USB cable (or unplug the power cord) to avoid this.The clamping mechanism is really easy to use, and it's extremely effective--much better than the old Microsoft Wheel for the Xbox 360, which is the only other wheel I can compare it to. Finger tight on the two knobs locks the wheel down completely--no amount of rapid turning against strong force feedback will twist it loose.The buttons are all easy to press while driving, and roughly mirror the positions on a stock controller. The LSB and RSB buttons reproduce pressing down on the analog sticks of the stock controller. Not all games support these buttons on the wheel (Project Cars II definitely does--I have not found them to work in Forza however, which makes it hard to access some portions of the game, like Forzavista, context help in Tuning, etc.--fortunately, this doesn't impact any controls while driving, and you can launch the game with a normal controller to use those other functions).
Love it, but I'm already thinking of moving up again. I bought this on sale to replace my first wheel, a Thrustmaster T80. I was wearing out T80s after about 2 months. Fortunately the manufacturer stood behind them enough to send me new ones. I've had the G20 for over 6 months now and have had zero issues. I use this with a PS4, and my game of choice is GT Sport.As for the force-feedback part of it, it is fun being able to feel the curbstones in the corners. It is even more fun when you feel, in the wheel, when the car gets light after cresting a hill. The pedals are much nicer than T80 set in that I get just a little "feedback" (not force-feedback) from the rubber bumper under the pedal. Some folks take the bumper out, but I left it in and rely on it. I can always press into it if needed.If you are thinking about getting your first wheel, I think the G29 is great. The T80 may be half of the price of the G29, but it is not even a quarter of the quality and durability of the G29. That said, just having a wheel and pedals alone makes a big difference in game-realism over using the joystick controllers (and for me makes a difference in overall time). I was quite content with the T80 until it started failing, but I was also already wondering if force-feedback was worth the extra money (it is).One star off only because the force-feedback, while very nice, feels a little gritty. I'm guessing the more $$ we spend, the more realistic and smooth they feel.
I got it in a promotion and price was very close to much simpler systems. The G920 seems robust and works perfectly in my PC with Forza 7 and Need for Speed (after installing software). Playing with this wheel and pedals is another world. I was playing using my keyboard only and I could not play these games for more than 10min... was very disappointing. Now with the G920 I can spend hours as it is so fun and realistic. I will buy a special chair or even those systems that includes the chair and wheel/pedal support. The G920 is really a nice upgrade for your car gaming with very good overall quality. I will test now in my Xbox One. I do recommend.
This wheel is great. The force Feedback adds a realistic feel to the game but the motor is powerful and my cheap folding table was tipping while fighting the wheel to regain control of my cars. You can disable if by unplugging the power cord for the motor and just leaving the USB connection to the xbox/pc plugged in. The wheel is really sensitive without the motor however. Plan to have a sturdy set up for this wheel. My only complaint is the brake. The brake is really stiff and it takes a lot of force to fully depress the pedal. If this was not correctable I would have returned the whole thing! Fortunately you can remove a small rectangular piece of rubber from the break to reduce the tension from the spring. You'll need a set of torx wrenches size 10 and 30. You'll need a size 1 and 2 Philips screwdriver and a 10mm socket or crescent wrench. Make sure it's unplugged. Remove the brake pedal (middle pedal) with the Torx10 then remove all of the screws from the back of the pedal box. Open it up and pull the break pedal out. Be careful not to damage any of the wires! Use the 10mm wrench and the Torx30 to remove the nut and bolt that holds the brake together. Then pull the rubber piece out and put the spring back in. Make sure all the wires are placed properly in their spots before closing it back up. The game play is significantly improved with this brake mod! The spring itself is still pretty strong and I might go with a different spring later but it's playable now. Also, The pedal box has a spikey kind of "carpet brake" that you can pop out to hold the whole thing in place. It works surprisingly well on my rug. Before my brake mod the force of pressing the pedal would move the whole pedal set up now the carpet breaks work just fine to hold it in place.
The G920 looks great. This is my first forced feedback wheel so i have no preferences on how good it feels compared to others. Metal pedals and paddle shifters. As most people will say the brake is very difficult to depress all the way to 100% because of the rubber piece they gave it to make it feel more of a progressive pressure feel, however if you adjust the deceleration deadzone down to ~35 and you'll be fine. I've also noticed if you have set the rotation to anything different, if you hit the home button it'll reset the setting back to 900�� of rotation. Overall its a great wheel but...the biggest complaint i have (which seems to be a very common issue with the g920 and g29) is that when it turns left it produces a very high pitch squealing sound that can get annoying. It's a sound as if you can all of a suddenly hear dog whistles, so putting on a headset is a must if you don't wanna hear it.(In the photo i bought the stand that is in the "frequently bought together", it's $189 for a stand...a little ridiculous for a stand if you ask me)Decent shifter. I have never driven a manual car and i believe this is designed as a short throw shifter, so i have issues knowing if its in gear all the way because it's such a short throw. It doesn't really feel "notchy" enough when shifting as i would like. I have the g920 wheel so I'm unsure if there are any other shifters that work with wheel or not
This is my first gaming wheel, so I can't compare it to others, but it's much better than playing games with keyboards or controllers. The feedback feels quite real, when you drive through speed bumps or kerbs the wheel shakes accordingly, when you lose control it rotates like crazy. It's simply amazing for a starter.The point of a gaming wheel is to have better car control and a more realistic experience, so it works better for track racing games like GT Sports, not street racing games like NFS Payback. The latter one is actually better with keyboards.A few drawbacks:1. the break paddle is a bit stiff so you really need to fix your chair. I tied my chair to the table with some ropes, which seems a bit silly.2. there's no cooling system so if you play for too long, the wheel actually overheats.
All I can say is wow!! There are times I have to look around the room to see if I'm still there and not sitting in a race car on the track. The sensitivity is amazing that when I am racing and my car starts to fishtail, I almost feel like I'm moving sideways myself. You feel every bump imaginable. I did a lot of research before ordering the and compared this to the Thrustmaster racing wheel. My brother has the Thrustmaster and I was impressed the moment I tried it but I decided to go with the because of the price difference. Well, that is the only difference I can see, the is as responsive and maybe even more so. You won't be disappointed.
Mod the brake petal, seriously, mod the brake petal...in case I wasn't clear...mod the brake petal.-1 Star because I had to mod the brake petal.Otherwise it's solid.Good feedback, quite accurate, and solid feel.But that stupid piece of rubber in the brake petal. I could only get 57% travel on the brake petal without standing on it. Even without the rubber, the brake is tight.Anyway, if you have an xbox get this wheel, if you have a ps4 get the other one. If won't get a console, just pick one...but this wheel is quite solid.
I just got this g920 and unboxing was great; quality, appearance, feel, the works. I'm using on a PC so configuration is different (and why I gave 4 stars). I haven't found a whole lot on setup process in the box or just in general, although just enough to get it working.For those using PC this is what I've gathered. Go to the website and look up your model, download the software and firmware update, run the software and select a racing profile, map it to the game, open game (install game before creating profile, it will recognize installed games on Windows 10, Windows 7 users may have to use installed folder paths to game exe root, and idk about 8 users you're on your own lol). ! Reboot ! It's never a bad idea, even if I sound like tech support "have you tried turning it off and back on again?". Open game and go to control settings and make sure the input and buttons are set to the controls not the key board. At that point if it doesn't work, reboot with updates, if selectable, confirm all settings in software and game again. That should be about it. I might do a video in case other people are having issues, like the comment if interested
I bought this wheel (G29, the PS4/PC version w/o shifter) so I could get started sim racing, and was pleasantly surprised at how nice this wheel is. A lot of reviews mention the noise, which I won't deny. It did squeak quite a bit out of the box, but the squeaking died down with use. Be aware that this wheel gets hot with use, and will quickly heat a small room up. It's good for the longevity of the wheel to allow it to cool down after a half hour or so of use (same goes for your eyes). It's addicting and brutalizing at the same time: it really changes the racing experience. For the price, this is easily the single best entry level force-feedback wheel you can buy.The one major issue with it is that not all racing or driving games will work with it. Mainly all of the PC racing games will work, so long as they're mainstream. Off the beaten path games may not have controller support. Be sure to check and see which games support it.
Pulled the trigger on the G29 after looking for some better VR experiences. Project Cars 2, which I already owned from a Steam Summer sale went form a "meh, this is fun but I'm not into sim racing" to "Holy $h17, VR puts me in the car!" to "I need a wheel because VR racing with an Xbox 360 controller just doesn't cut it". Debated between this and the T150 and ended with the G29 mainly from a few reviews and the additional buttons on the wheel... also it was on sale that day.My thoughts about the G29 itself... Great size feel/grip from the wheel. It feels substantial and weighty. The force feedback is strong enough to give me the perception that I'm driving the real thing. The weight of the pedals feel right and the sensitivity make me feel like I can be very precises with my throttle and breaking. The button layout works and once you learn it, is easy to blindly manipulate in VR. All in all, I'm very happy and would recommend this to anyone debating a 1st time wheel purchase.
Really happy with this wheel. Based on all the people suggesting Thrustmaster wheels over this one I was a little concerned as to how much I was going to like it. After having this wheel a week now I can say that those concerns were completely unwarranted. This thing is an absolute blast on my PS4 with Project Cars, you really feel every little detail through the wheel, even when you go over curbing you can tell which side of the car went over it through the wheel. It's really transformed my racing experience, I don't even feel like I'm playing the same game anymore. I highly recommend this wheel.
If you are looking for a good wheel with solid foce feedback, but don't want to spend a fortune, I would absolutely recommend this wheel. I bought the 920 a year ago to use for iRacing, and had it for almost a year when it had some glitch with it that was registering buttons. It was used and beat a lot, and even fell off my desk a few times, so not really any fault on . At my time of purchasing this, it was the same price as the 920 but usually its a bit more expensive, and here's why. The G29 has Playstaion buttons instead of Xbox, which isn't fantastic but also not a huge deal if you want to play games on PC, as most show Xbox controls in game. However it also has pretty solid LED shift lights above the center of it, which is a nice touch. In addition however, it also has 5 more usfull buttons, and a knob type button as well. Also located well to be able to be pressed while driving. It also has the LED light signifying that it's on at the top of the wheel, instead of on the face of it which blinds you if it's dark in your room which is what the G920 has, so that's nice. Overall in my opinion the blue center tape and buttons look cooler than the silver/white ones on the G920. It is compadable for PC, PS3, and a PS4 though i have only used it on PC as the only PS i have is a PS2. I have used it for iRacing, NASCAR Heat 2, NASCAR Heat 3, rFactor2, Project Cars, American Truck Simulator, NR2003, F1 2015, F1 2017, and Gravel and it works perfectly on all of them. Great first or budget wheel.
Great addition to my xbox one s. The wires are ok for the length. Steering is sturdy enough but the quality of the plastic, specially the pedalboard one, it feels flimsy and definitely not ABS plastic. The hand shifter also doesn't feel quality enough, clicks sound very cheap and the metal is thin.Another thing I do not like personally is the pressure sensitivity of the brake pedal, it is VERY stiff to handle.I do own sports car and it's not like says that you will be getting the real feel LOL... It's just another simulator in plastic.Just get a stand for this; with or without seating adjuster.
I can't speak to the long-term durability/reliability, but my initial impressions are:- Quality is fine (yes there's plastic, but the grip is good, the buttons work fine, and it doesn't feel cheap to me).- The brake pedal bushing that everyone complains about is a non-issue, in my opinion; the pedals work fine without any modifications, and my games let me adjust the progression anyway.- I'm mounting it to a glass desk that is barely more than 1/4in thick, and there are no mounting issues.- The pedals are sitting on the floor (carpeted) without anything to secure them, and they haven't slid around once, even when I mashed the brake.- I installed the gaming software (from their web site) to customize the buttons, etc., and it's fine.I'll update this review for durability when it breaks, or in 1 year, whichever comes first.
Incredible racing wheel and pedal set. Most realistic feel I've ever felt outside of an automobile. It takes a couple dedicated hours of playing with your setup to get it dialed in but once its there, WOW. It's not the same experience at all. Totally new kind of gaming experience and the most realistic feeling drive sim you can find for this price point. The feedback is amazing. Strong enough that you really feel like you're fighting a car but so precise and delicate that you can tell at the very point in which you start to lose grip. Minus the g-forces felt in your own body when driving, this is as close at it comes outside of super pricey sim setups. I'd HIGHLY recommend getting a seat/stand combo or something similar. Sitting otherwise, is pretty uncomfortable but still doable. Stop debating on getting a wheel and snag this baby. Whether you are someone who games casually and looking for a way to up your racing games, or someone who competes online in esports racing leagues, this wheel has something to offer. I'm upset at myself for debating on it for so long now that i see how much fun it is!
According to other reviews, I must have gotten one of the good ones. So far this thing has been great. The build feels really well and the FFB is enough to keep me satisfied. I have put this thing through hell racing dirt with sprint cars and modified on iRacing and it is holding its own. Plenty of buttons to map for ease of use in VR. The only thing I would like better is if the wheel was just a tad bigger in diameter. It does have the grindy feel due to the gear system it uses, but once you get your preferred settings in order, you can hardly tell. For the money, this wheel is by far the best you can get. Word of advice, if you are having trouble installing the software on your Windows 10 machine, unplug your optical drive prior to installing. As crazy as this sounds, it works when you run into the installation hanging up.
This wheel is amazing to use. I am currently using it to play American Trucking Simulator and it has made the gaming experience much better. I have tried racing wheels in the past but they always made driving much more difficult. This one has changed how I feel about racing wheels for the better. The force feedback really makes you think about how deep you should be turning the wheel when going fast. The more violent it vibrates indicates that you are risking your truck and trailer rolling over in the turn. I love the rev indicator leds as they really help get the shifting right. I also own the H-shifter which is a great addition.The number of buttons helps limit how much I need to rely on the keyboard for in game functions. You can even assign G key macro commands to any of the buttons which I use to trigger my 3 button push-to-talk for teamspeak. The volume buttons are in a great spot so I never have to reach for my keyboard volume buttons during the game. The red dial is handy as I have the transmission retarder mapped to. The bottom PS4 buttons can be used with the pc and can be programmed to do anything you need them to be. For anyone that knows LUA scripting, any button on here can but scripted just like other G key devices.
Wheels operates the same as the G27, but looks different. Great force feedback. Pedals are same as G27 with the exception of the upgraded brake pedal (which makes all the difference in the world for simulation racing). I used this on the PC; only issue is that the equipment must be in PS4 mode in order for the PC to recognize it. Beyond that, best wheel on the market under $400.00Highly recommended.
It's my first FFB wheel. It's excellent fun in games and does what I expect... however there's a few issues.Let's start with the pros!TL:DR: It's a great wheel and the best for value however you can sort of feel where the higher end options may be better. For most everyone besides extremely serious sim racers this is an amazing wheel and I'd definitely recommend. And for the sim drivers out there, $1,000 direct drive wheels are the way to go.Edit: The sound has gone away after some use of the wheel. Probably just needed to be broken in[Pros]- Decent build quality, pretty durable (it's only been a few days)- Competitive price. The Thrustmaster equivalent is a few hundred dollars more depending on where you look (I got this wheel for $200 on sale... thrustmaster equiv. is ~$500)- It works... pretty well at that!- Great clamping system!- Great feeling pedals (with the exception of a small thing mentioned in the cons)[Cons]- An infernal screeching noise when turning the wheel to the left... lack of lubrication? This issue has been reported by a handful of users as well (I may request a replacement)- I needed to do a quick mod to remove some tiny little stopper on the brake pedal that only allowed for maybe an inch of travel. This, and a shifter mod, are supposedly the most common things and a majority of people opt for this... annoying but it took only about 25 minutes and a simple screwdriver- Since it's a gear driven FFB system there's (very very minor) inconsistencies in the feedback- little jumps sorta... and again with this gear driven system, it's kinda slow to turn from left lock to right lock. For basic racing this isn't even noticeable, however if you plan to drift or do rallycross I suggest investing in belt driven or direct drive (these options cost an arm and a leg)
The wheel is absolutely perfect for the money. Great quality and you get more than your moneys' worth. The pedals are awesome but like others have stated the brake is tough and needs time to break in. When you adjust your settings in game I always turn my deceleration outer dead zone to 80 or so depending on the game to counteract the problem and it works just fine. That is my only gripe and it is fixable and it goes away over time. The materials used feel sturdy and solid. The buttons are high quality. The leather is great. When in first use it would squeak a little when turning but that has gone and I have seen others with the same problem but it goes away. The response is absolutely perfect. The force feedback is very realistic. I am in love :)

Love, love, love it!! The brake pedal is amazingly stiff, but I think the settings so I don't need to fully depress it. Works much better. The shifter is clearly "controller like", but very effective and feels pretty darn good. Love being able to race a stick shift again! The wheel itself, omg, is great. Leather wrapped, smells good, and feels even better when racing. Coming from a Driving Force GT, this thing is the bomb!
If you're to take your racing game experience to the next level, look no further. The G920 Racing Wheel is an amazing thing, and will increase your favorite racing sim fun-factor 10-fold! With its leather-wrapped rim, anodized aluminum face, and brushed aluminum paddle shifters, this wheel is certainly a gorgeous thing to behold; much better looking than any of its competitors or its sister wheel, the G29. The pedals themselves are very heavy duty, made of I believe brushed aluminum (pedal faces) and stainless steel, and have taken all the punishment I've doled out since its first use with ease. This is truly a quality product. I use this with an Xbox One, and so far have been playing the s*** out of Forza Horizon 2. The force feedback has been great; not at all weak as some vocal minority have said. You feel every bump, you feel under/oversteer, you feel damn near every little thing that your virtual car goes through. It's simply amazing, especially with a good quality headset. I built a custom gaming rig (which I HIGHLY recommend) that I use with this. I have the pedal inverted which makes for better pedal feel. All in all, this setup is wonderful and I highly recommend it for any racing sim enthusiast out there!
I have my wheel and pedals for 18 months with TONS of use. I love both.Recently I encountered a problem and contacted them. Their service was terrific. After an initial on-line warranty form, they contacted me with some suggested solutions. When these did not work I called them and always had a very helpful person to talk to. They quickly OK'd my issue under warranty and shipped me a new wheel. I could not have been happier. Their service was 180 degrees from the "service" my friend received on his Thrustmaster pedals which he is still trying to solve.Highly recommended.
The steering wheel is really high quality and the force feedback is great, only complaint about the wheel is that its too small but its as good as it will get for the price. The pedals are also nice and high quality... Except for the brake pedal, its not low quality or anything but there is this pointless rubber piece inside of the spring that makes it literally impossible to press down on the breaks all the way and this doesnt translate well in games, I have to stand on the brake pedal for it to get pressed down all the way.... However, once you take apart the pedals and remove the rubber piece, the brakes are actually fine and its still decently stiff. Not sure on why thought it would be a good idea to put a rubber piece if the pedal cant detect how hard you are pressing it, it can only detect how far you pressed the pedal. Do this at your own risk, there are very thin wires inside of the pedal attachment and you could easily rip them.
I loved it. This has to be the best wheel I have ever used and the force feedback is great and also the steering is nice but there is one thing that bugs me which is that the pedals the break is quite hard or really hard and it makes the whole pedal set slide with is a problem but other things it is great and it also works great on forza horizon 3 and forza motorsport 7 which is the games that I play right now. And also this wheel when I checked has a lower force feed back thing but when I used it it was great everything felt right. And speaking of what felt right I would say the wheel size is also nice. It is not too big to handle and not too small for a child. And also this wheel has one of the best looks I have ever seen on a steering wheel. There is also another version which is the g29 which is the same thing but for the ps4. I think that wheel looks likes a kids toy because of the bluish design but on this wheel everything looks right especially the quality on the wheel and the pedals. With mainly mental the wheel is great and just feels like it would live really long. And also I think that this wheel specifically is a good price for this great wheel because of you seen something like this and if it is from fanatec it would be a lot more expensive.
This wheel is so sweet!! Trust me whw. I say this...the fluidity of feel is heavenly. It is fully customizable for your driving pleasure.I had the GT Force Feedback and has no issues, but the big brother GT29 is excellent in all aspects of design.Any true gamer who wants a wheel to play driving games (and hates racing with folks who use controllers), this wheel will satisfy without question. Enjoy!!BTW, the wheel can last you years if you treat it with care. Place the pedal back in its plastic covering when you arent playing with it. I find this will keep the opening of each pedal clean and free of dust that MAY insiduously harm the longevity of the product. Be warned. ????
Decided to move up from the controller to a wheel for playing GT Sport on PS4 and project cars. My first wheel, but it seems to be well built, the steering wheels is comfortable and responsive, the force feedback is strong. Pedals feel good, overall good product and bought it on sale during Prime day, so thanks . Would have been nice for them to through in the shifter, but the paddle shift is nice and have a satisfying click. I was impressed to see they were metal and not plastic. Plug and play with the PS4 with perfect, plugged it in and drove immediately, no setup required. I've had a few peripherals, and this seems to be in the same vein of high quality as others I've used (mice, keyboards, remotes, controllers). Good wheel, good price, get to racing.
This is our second wheel, so we can have 2-player races. It works well. The two older generation wheels we had both broke after a couple of years' use, so I am a little leary of the longevity.The clamps should allow a wider range of thickness of tables etc.
This wheel is great! I have used this on several PS4 driving games (F1 2016, F1 2017, GT, Drive Club and more). Like a lot of steering wheels you do need to mess with the settings a bit first for each game but it is pretty basic stuff. Almost plug-and-play. Nascar seems to be a tad buggy, not really any settings for Nascar so you kind of just have to deal with it. That is on the game maker though not . The paddles and pedels feel very well built, the peddles are a big improvement here from the G27. if you play games like F1, GT or PC the buttons on the wheel are a must, it really helps and is a great feature. Overall if you have a G27 and have the extra money to upgrade I would, If not the G27 works very well.
I had a Thrustmaster that broke after less than 10 uses... I bought the G29 as a backup while the Thrustmaster was being fixed and repaired. I like the G29 so much that I'm hesitant to switch back now that my fixed thrust master has come back to me. If you're debating between wheels and what's better than the others, this G29 is the one you want. I went google searching and I am not the only customer that has had their Thrustmaster die on them. Seems to be some type of an over heating issue or something with the motor and it seems to be common. Do yourself a favor and buy this wheel now because you'll end up here anyways if you don't.
The wheel has an exceptional build quality. Everything feels premium about the product.HoweverI had multiple driver issues. Used it on PC with a few games.On F1 2018, it kept disconnecting. Only the steering worked, all other buttons kept getting disabled after launching the game. After fiddling with the settings, reinstalling drivers and switching wheel between ps3 and ps4 mode, i got it to work. But after restarting my computer again thr same issues. Too much effort for playing the game every time.Tried it on a few other games, and it was not recognized.Worked well on couple of other games
You need to tune this, out of the box do not expect this to just work. It works fine but what I mean is that I spent days getting the settings just right for my individual games. As of right now this thing is all but spot on as for driving a real car on my pc. This seems like it will last a very long time and I hope it definitely does because I have a lot of fun with it. For relaxing games its fine with the clamps but for hardcore racing games, make sure you clamp this thing down tight, or else you might pull it off of your desk/table...
so far this is great steering wheel. Not sure about negative reviews, one major thing i noticed is that no other controllers can be connected to the xbox. Initially it wasn't working looked on line looked @ website no one mentions the very important single thing is to disconnect all controllers. No need to update firmware. Here is how to make it work with everything. 1) disconnect all xbox controllers 2) plug G920 adapter in wall 3) plug in G920 usb to xbox 4) wait for calibration to finish 5)press xbox button on G920 6) navigate with pad on G920 to sign in to your profile with steering wheel 7) presto it works with all my games. Very awesome force feedback, Using Forza 7 and Need for speed payback - all functions work, shifter clutch everything... hope this helps
after playing 100s hours of Project cars, Project cars 2, Assetto Corsa, F1 2017, dirt rally, and some beamNG.drive. i have compiled a few pros and cons for this wheel.pro:-great leather feel-metal frame work-awesome range-force feed back is quite strong-was plug and play on ps4-clips that are on the clamps are removable (however are hard to remove)-lots of programable buttons-has a clutch-break pedal has resistance to it-supported on lots of games-pedals are metal-adjustable clamps that mount to table and hold tightcons-the force feedback sometime feels like it doesn't translate the resistance very well. in some cases the wheel is choppy, rather than a consistent resistance-The wheel can be loud and makes a grinding sound that sounds like it breaking.-the base and clamps are made of plastic and feel cheap-although the clamps are great at holding on to the table, the pegs you turn to tighten the clamps are plastic and are slippery. this make it difficult to remove if you over tighten. on top of that when the pegs can be brought down in to the base but sometime get stuck.-if you are playing on pc you need to install a program before you can use it.-lastly the wheel size is kinda small, and feel a bit awkward
For me this is the best steering wheel for beginners, this bring rpm led indicator what is awesome and there is not another wheel of this price with that feature, also the steering wheel is cover with leather that make it look nice,Pedals: the brake pedals bring a load cell that help you to regulate the brake pressure and this pedals are really better than the thrustmaster 150 pro bring with it...In my opinion this steering wheel could be more expensive than thrustmaster t150 pro and it is even cheaper!
Pros:Good Force FeedbackEasy To SetupPerfect For BeginnersCons:Makes Loud Noise From Motor Through UseDoesn't Come With Shifter (Not Much A Con)Some Games Don't Work With It (Ehh)This wheel is amazing for entry people and can even be used by people who actually compete. From personal use, I enjoy this wheel a lot. I've owned this wheel twice, first time it was used and the second was from brand new. You can tell the the motors do wear out from use but it's very minimal. When I purchased this wheel, I was expecting either a used or refurbished wheel but I got a new wheel for less than $200 including shipping & tax. If you are looking to purchase this wheel, I'd say do it. You won't regret it.
So I did a lot of research before purchasing this and I must say it was my best gift to myself in 2018. Once I had successfully adjusted my steering sensitivities on F1 2018, Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 4, it felt so real!. I am still working on a proper setup for Driveclub. Advice: do not give up on this wheel on initial setup. Go online and check for forums with discussions about settings for a specific game and adjust according to your driving style. I have only used it for a week, so I cannot give any rating on durability but so far, IT IS AMAZING! SOMEBODY HELP!!! I have refused to get up from my Forza Motorsport 7!!!! LOOOOL.
The wheel works great, clamps are very strong and the clamp locking system is excellent. However, while the wheel does "plug and play", you should install the control app so you can customize the wheel to user preference. In the case of Forza Horizon 4 (first game I used it on), it required a bit of fine tuning (YouTube was a good resource for finding a baseline), however more "serious" racing sims might not be as bad. Only problem with the pedals is the overall size, they are generally easier to use without shoes/footwear on, as the clutch and break are rather close, but this is a minor problem. Overall, the unit was easy to install, and is a decent racing wheel for the race enthusiast on a budget.
I had a problem with my gas pedal, but support worked hard to ensure that the issue was resolved. A new unit has been arranged to be sent to my house, and I am highly satisfied with how efficiently things turned out on the support end, which compelled me to write this review. Moving on to the wheel itself, it is visually appealing and built with quality material. The wrapping on the wheel may be vinyl, I'm not sure exactly what material, but its holds up well with the look of the rest of the wheel. I was reluctant at first to buy it because I wanted a wheel with quality and wasn't sure where to start, but now that I have it I can say that the investment was solid. The software and framework is easy to work with. For the most part things are integrated pretty well and you could plug and play using options from the games you are playing. Most racing games register the device and it is easy to find when you want to switch from the keyboard or controller. I myself use the wheel and pedals and decided not to get the shifter, so I use my keyboard for shifting instead, which works very well. I can simultaneously use the wheel and my keyboard at the same time. On the performance end it is very responsive and works well for every driving or racing game. If I want to play Spintires or American Truck Simulator, the pedals and steering respond to my inputs well even if I am lightly touching the throttle or brake. The steering response is practically down to the millimeter and the force feedback immerses me into those games even more. I should note that I don't use force feedback in the high speed games as it's just a preference but in the few times I have tried it, I have felt every bump and every crest on the rally courses of DiRT Rally. My racing and drifting experiences have been great with this wheel. I can honestly say that I have no complaints about this product, and I have no regrets buying it whatsoever. It mounts well by the way too
This is our first steering wheel and we are using it on a pc with BeamNG Drive, and Wreckfest. Googled a few sites on the best configuration for the two games and set the wheel up accordingly.The steering feel is very good and sometimes I forget I'm playing a simulator . It is a complete blast to slide and counter-steer in Wreckfest. The only downside as others have mentioned is the pedal set does slip around on the carpet. Will need to attach to a rubber mat or something to keep it from sliding. Otherwise, the pedal set is great, the gas and brake work well and the feel is realistic with the brakes giving good resistance. I didn't purchase a stock shift and don't feel the need for it as the paddle shifters are huge and work great.I saw the reviews for Thrustmaster before making this purchase decision, but there seemed to be durability/longevity issues with it, so I chose the instead. Hope the lasts. I am very happy with this purchase!
Coming from a $70 wheel and pedals this is night and day. I still have a PS3. this works seamlessly with F1 2014 and Driver san Francisco. It also works seamlessly with the original GRID. (Which Sony is selling for 10 bucks online!) Leather wrapped wheel, aluminum and steel construction. Fit and finish are excellent. you NEED a wheel mount with this, it produces A LOT of torque. I bought this on black Friday for 199. I personally wouldn't have paid full price for it. Not that it's not worth it, it's just a bridge too far.
Very responsive and awesome product.Once you fully configure it, you will have the most tailored driving experience.I added the shifter with it and it is terrific.Force Feedback: pretty brutal at the beginning, once you are use to it and you smoother your driving style you will feel every single movement of the car.On the wheel controls: just a Xbox one controller so well placed and easy to use.Shifting paddles: nice to catch on straight lines you will be challenged during corners.Pedals: gas great, clutch easy, brake a little bit hard but I like it.USB cable: I would enjoy 1 or 2 extra feet...
Ok I love racing games but playing such rich detailed lovingly recreated maps like the ones in the modern games lends more to immersion than a Xbox 1 controller. Enter the G92 Dual Actiom racing wheel. Whoa it was actually like playing an old cabinet game. The wheel is wrapped in leather and comfortable until you know you spin out and hit the wall then the wheel feeds right on back. Love this wheel. It's responsive and light I got a stand for it and now I'm in it. Did it improve my skill gosh no ha ha haaa. It did add a large increase in immersion.
Seems to work really well, it actually has a toggle switch for PS3 and PS4 at the top of the center of the wheel which is really cool. If you ever race in an arcade this wheel seems way better than those imo, and with the H shifter (if you got that too) is so much fun. My only gripe is that I wish they had analog sticks to help you navigate the games, I don't even mean good analog sticks, just PSVita or PSP type sticks would do just fine, but you have to connect a play station controller if you want to use sticks, anything else in the game is fine. Analog is never usually required in racing games, but sometimes they have things like designing a car which has mechanics that use sticks.
I bought this mostly for casual/free roam FH4 and FM7 on xbox.Works great! fresh out the box plug and play.May have to search dampening settings for the games you want to play and fine tune it from there.I've driven a manual transmission in real life and this basically taught me somewhat properly without having to buy a car haha.--welded up a HAGGARD rig for it lmao. pics up eventually--pretty cool stuff. :D
I play America Truck Simulator with this on PC. Love it.
The wheel is amazing like really amazing its my first wheel and I love pretty much everything about it but I do hope that the squeaking sound goes really soon and also I hope I wear out the brake pedal since it has the rubber piece in it and you can barely push it down it really messes me up when I play ATS or ETS2 other than those two everything else is pretty great. Also with the squeaking sound when turning left I looked for troubleshooting options on Youtube and its quite a frequent problem amongst the owners of the wheel hopefully it just goes in time.
The only thing I don't like is no one makes a wheel anymore where the paddles can double as gas and brake. Other than that they finally made a wheel where the pedals actually go 100 percent. Previous wheels would make me the slowest on the track. This is my first shifter. It really adds to the fun of driving. With the nice stand, an Xbox one s and x, I feel like I'm in the car.
it took me a while to get used to it since I use it for a number of driving simulators including Dirt Rally (Oculus Rift VR), Project Cars (VR), Rfactor2 and others. All of them, of course, requiring different buttons for different things so it took a while (days actually) to get it configured so that it was similar across the different simulators which of course is nearly impossible but I came fairly close. I don't have a lot of experience with wheels but I certainly like this one.
I bought this for my husband for Christmas to play with the latest Forza game and he quickly discovered that it doesn't work great with that one. But what started out as disappointment turned into excitement when he realized that it is great for a couple of his older Forza games that are more of the track racing style! He had given up on those games because they were too difficult to play with the controller, but with this he can now enjoy them again.

It's a good wheel.Plug and play; combined with Oculus VR it makes for a pretty immersive experience.Sure, you can feel/hear the helical gears. So what?It may be old tech but it's reliable (looking at you T150 that burned up in 3 hours).The T3PA pedals have a better feel to them, but this setup is good enough for the casual sim racer like myself.
Bought this for my 12yo grandson to play Forza 4 on XBox One. Seems to be sturdy and versatile. It came with the pedals and I also purchased the gear shift. Seems to be sturdy. It did NOT come with hardware to attach it to anything. I also purchased a stand. If not for son's tool box, I would have had to take it to the hardware store for suitable screws. Non of the 3 components came with screws! Odd. I searched the boxes several times and my son asked too where the screws were.
Honestly, this seems like a pretty well-made product, even for the high price. I didn't get with a shifter but it looked more sturdy than the G27 piece of plastic. Steel construction at the cross-section in the middle, and probably all around the wheel, nice thick leather wrapping that's on there pretty good. Overall very sturdy.I was also skeptical about the fact there wasn't a version without Xbox/PS4 buttons, but it grew on me as a nice convenient controller to navigate menus easily. The only actual issue I'd say, would be the thing about brake pedal everyone complains about (with it being very stiff), but it honesty doesn't seem that bad. If anything, it feels pretty realistic with it being tight instead of having to floor it...I did have to change brake saturation in-game to about 40% thought, so if you play an unsupported game and can't control that any other way, you would definitely have a hard time apply brakes to 100%.
This wheel, plus the 6-speed shifter add-on, have been a GLORIOUS addition to the man-cave. The feedback provided through the wheel is realistic, crisp and natural. The craftsmanship/response of the wheel and pedals are exactly what you'd expect from : quality, sturdy and reliable. This is easily the most excited I've been regarding a video game peripheral since the original Nintendo Power Glove LOL
The only real complaint I've had is that it started squeaking during left turns almost immediately. Honestly "squeak" doesn't really do it justice. It's kind of like a shrieking squeal. Like a dog whistle for humans. Right at the top of audible frequency. I had to take it apart and apply an electrically safe lubricant to one of the brushed motors that drives the force feedback. It's been working beautifully since then.Other minor complaints: the pedal unit is a little too light to stay planted on carpet, even with the spikes deployed. The pedals are also pretty darn close together. You're not likely to hit the wrong pedal or anything, but you will find your shoes attacking one another during left foot braking.Aside from that, everything else is great.
4 stars just due to the fact of the brake pedal issue as I did see in the ratings before i ordered it. I did see a fix for it and will look into it when i have time. I have plugged it in and set it up . Good unit overall .

I was so excited to finally play racing games with a wheel after so many years playing with a controller and what a difference!The first time you put your hands on the wheel you can feel how well made this thing is and it might be a little bit difficult or even frustrating at first but after a few hours of playing and messing with the wheel settings for each game you will have a lot of fun and realism.There are some comments about the brake pedal being too stiff and too hard to push it all the way down and there are even some tutorials on YouTube on how to remove the little rubber piece from that pedal but I wouldn't recommend this because it will take away the "real" feeling of braking a true racing car and also could avoid guarantee or something. Instead what I would recommend is to adjust the brake pedal settings on each game for example on forza horizon 3 you can go ahead and decrease the deacceleration outside setting all the way down to 20-25 and will be just perfect and you won't take the risk of breaking your pedals trying to remove the rubber and also you will keep the realistic feeling.
After much research I chose this wheel based on other reviews of this product and the price. Everything about this wheel, pedals and shifter are amazing except for the obvious notchy feeling with the force feedback and resistance. It is annoying and really detracts from the realistic feel its supposed to give. I gave it some time in the hopes that it would wear in or that I could manipulate the settings enough, but to no avail. It is so annoying that I will be taking the wheel apart to understand and hopefully find a remedy for it. If that does not work I will be selling it.Other than that it is a solid wheel and really really good quality for the money.
Very well built. Compatible with all the newer racing games. A few of the older previous versions of AAA racing games require some fiddling. So far all but one of those have worked. Go to the website of the game you play or want to play and check wheel compatibility and user forums before you buy.
This review is on about a year of ownership, playing on a regular basis. First, Please make sure you have gaming software downloaded onto your PC before buying. This is how updates your wheel and provides drivers for most racing games. This wheel is rather durable and can be mounted using the given clamps, or if you want to install on a frame, bolt necks are available. Unit is very stable bolted into a frame. My only issue has been my Shifter (bought separately,) has button issues. Nothing on the wheel has degraded since.
IMPORTANT: The software the wheel requires slams your CPU. My i7 7700k with watercooling heats up a ton after about an hour using this. Take this into consideration. Also the force feedback improves with the framerate so make sure VSYNC is off on all your games you use this with. Feels scarily realistic. The only thing I can recommend is buying an adapter and a full size steering wheel for true immersion since the wheel is 270mm and a real wheel is closer to 350mm. Brakes are stiff but are actually really good. See the pedal becomes very stiff after some travel and if you've ever tried to push the brakes ALL the way in your car you know the feeling. The first bit of travel is great if you are using a car with no ABS since it's about how hard you can press without locking up the brakes. Clutch is fairly light and throttle a little heavier but both are smooth and satisfying. If you have wide feet I recommend using this set with just socks. You'll have better throttle control anyway. Strongly recommend getting the shifter as well. If you don't know how to drive a manual you can learn/teach others with this set. Short of getting a simulation chamber with G-force emulation this is pretty good. Looks kinda goofy with all the buttons but they are a lifesaver in games with tons of bindings and the dial is good if you have a race car that has a turbo/supercharger you can adjust on the fly. If you love racing irl this is a great gift to yourself. I actually drive on the track even more quickly and safer now that I can practice all I want with this little rig for the cost of a hotter room. Recommend games like Assetto Corsa, Gran Turismo, Beamng, Euro Truck Sim. TONS of aftermarket upgrades too if you want to throw more money at your rig.
This is one fun controller. It works and makes the driving games a blast. Only thing that is a little quirky is that it is only fair or strait parts of the track. It sometimes give you little jerks left or right that you have to compensate for. It needs to be smoothed out in that area to be even better. Other than that, I dont have any other complaints.
I had a Thrustmaster T80 and knew this wheel would be a upgrade and it's a major upgrade! Force feedback is great although takes a little getting used to and the clunking sounds from inside the wheel are the only thing that keeps you from feeling like you're really holding the wheel of a race car. Plenty of buttons to map out controls although some are not very easy to reach without taking a hand off the wheel so keep that in mind when mapping controls.The pedals have some weight to them and on hardwood, will stay in place most of the time. There's even teeth on the bottom to help grab the carpet. I do have wide feet so the pedals are kind of hard to use because they are very close together.Be careful of the wheel when it's first plugged in or turned on. It turns both directions lock to lock so be clear.I already have a G430 headset from so they share the same gaming app on windows although I had to reset my headset for some reason. Making my speakers default then changing back to my headset fixed that.In all, I enjoyed my first night with the G29 wheel. I have American Truck Simulator, Assetto Corsa, and iRacing
I've got a Thrustmaster T150, 2 pedal set at home for my PC and PS4 and like it very much. I got the G920 for my office PC whenever I get some down time. I have to say that the gear driven ffb is not a problem. It's very strong and the ffb dead zone some have mentioned is not an issue on my set. If I were to directly compare the 2, I would say the G920 is better overall. It feels more well made and sturdy. I just wish I could play GTSport with it, but that's what my T150 is for. I use the G920 for FH3, F7, PC 1 & 2 and Assetto Corsa, all on PC.
This wheel is pretty good, especially when paired with the H-Shifter and works well on most of the major games. The only issue I have is a common one, which is the piece of rubber on the brake seems to not allow it to be given a good amount of braking range and can lead to a very stiff pedal. You can't take it out since it voids the warranty, but most games will not having you braking hard enough to hit full brakes thankfully.Aside from that, overall, pretty happy with the G920.
This unit is 100% excellent for Dirt Rally with the shifter.On GT Sport, the shifter/clutch doesn't really work right. The game doesn't even require the clutch to shift, you can just throw it to the next gear which I really don't like.Lucky for me, the Dirt Rally series is my favorite sim, so I will stick to that.
I'm a fan of track driving I'll get 20-30 days track time each year.This wheel is great right out of the boxThis who complain of the brake pedal it's very realistic you modulate the brake on the track at full pressure this is a very similar feeling. Also to heel toe down shift you don't want a brake that goes to floor
Ever since I was little I've been always dreaming about the steering wheel with pedals and gear shifter so I can play on my computer. When I was searching for the wheel ofcourse I didn't want to spend too much money so my choices where limited to a wheels made of plastic for like 100$ tops. When I saw this particular product I fell in love with it, I bought it, set it up with my computer an enjoyed it for about 5-6 hours non stop, that's how good it is. Thank you
I enjoyed driving around in Crew 2. The only down side was the game.One thing i don't like about the wheel is how weird the feedback is, im scared to turn it rapidly and break all the gears inside.Other than that i removed the feedback and drove around for fun until after 2 months, crew 2 became obsolete. Multiplayer died. Haven't tried other driving games yet.
