I can tell you, that my thoughts for these wheels, that I have or owned under $500.

10 T300 RS (Excellent wheel and with T3PA Pedals, despite the horror stories(that seem to come from all companies), and the same price as a G29 [Logitech G29 users are missing out!])
8 CSR (Once set not bad, closer comparison to the T300 RS)
7 GT3 RS V2 (Oscillation tough to remove, but it's has a logo in the center:cool:)
6 T150 RS (If it wasn't for the drag a somewhat pwm/pwms fix and the belt/gear cringe without ffb, it would be closer in line with the feel of the Fanatec's. Option to use TH8A and T3PA!)
4 G25 (I know some would probably disagree, it has been 5-7 years since the gear chatter of the wheel and the pedals still work, probably the best thing Logitech made, G27 guessing 5 w/gearing)
3 DFGT (Buttons on wheel great, but shifters on the back on the wheel :no:, why Logitech wwwwhy)

Can't believe you put the G25 below the G27, Ok the G27 has heli gears as opposed to straight cut but the deadzone on the G27 is an average of 16% compared to the G25's 5%, Ok the 25 maybe louder but if you use headphones I'd rather have a tighter wheel that is louder than a slack one that is quieter, and you put the T150 above both the G25/G27 which includes 3 metal pedals and a H shifter (seq and H on G25), the T150 is more in line with the DFGT in it's price and option range.

Oh and a 10 in my book would be Accuforce or Bonar, T300 and T500 would be in the 4/5 range with the G25/G27 in the T300 range and the T500 above.

The G25/G27 are not even in the same category as the T300 RS, the other wheels are far above $500 US. So, what about price, it's FFB.

I would disagree for price and features the G25 and G27 are well within the T300 range if you add on features, OK the FFB is subjective from one to another but you cannot discount the shifter and pedals, the stock T300 pedals are crap and it has no H shifter in that price range.

Yes I know the Bonar and Accuforce are above the 500 range but I still think the Logitech are above the T150 and more in the T300 area.

The T150 has a Mixed belt-pulley and gears system Smoother, more fluid and less noisy than helical gears with metal ball-bearing axle (for enhanced sturdiness)

Logitech wheels have helical gearing.

3 DFGT (Buttons on wheel great, but shifters on the back on the wheel :no:, why Logitech wwwwhy)Haven't tried the CSR or the T150 RS, but I have tried the rest. Personally (and I do mean purely personally) I'd put the GT3 RS (all of the old Porsche wheels really) below the G25 for the simple reason of speed. Even though they're clearly stronger, they're pretty sluggish both with regard to reacting to FFB signal input, acceleration and top speed of rotation, and always felt way too sluggish for my tastes, most importantly for drifting. They're great wheels for lapping etc., but the sluggishness really hurt them for my tastes.

Have owned both the T300RS and the G27 & would agree the T300RS is way better in terms of FFB. The G27 pedals are much better though.

Overall I'd still go for the T300 if you can afford to upgrade the pedals. Obviously it will cost more to add in a shifter/better pedals, but it's worth it when you factor in the customisation options for the rim etc.

The G27 is around 330$ CAD on Newegg, while the T300RS is 449$ CAD on Newegg.
And since Newegg is probably the best place to buy PC parts/controllers/wheels and all that stuff, I would buy a G27.

The G25 has straight cut gears not helical like the G27 which is why it has less deadzone.

The G27 comes in 2nd there which is more in line where it should be on your rating.

I don't really think it's fair to compare the CSR and GT3 RS V2 wheels up against the T300. I think a more fair comparison is the Clubsport V2.

If you look at the numbers, it always came in 3rd, I think someone screwed up the #'s, The Logitech's are definitely below the Fanatec's. When you know, how to setup the wheel.

As you can see in my signature, there's better deals than newegg for the G27. It can go as low as 230$ CAD.(Even bougth mine for 200 before it got to 230)

Personnaly, i find the FFB somewhat lackluster compared to a G25, the only "recent" wheel i could compare too. With that said, 230$ CAD for a complete package is pretty good in my view. Both Canada Direct and NCIX are trustable, i've bough from them numerous times with great service!

Most of the wheels mentionned here are decent. It's also a matter of getting a good deal.
