    Thrustmaster T300 RS or G29?

    I currently have the G29 but do you think the T300 RS would be a better upgrade and something worth investing?

    I have a t300 and my co-worker has a g29 and when i played with his g29 it felt cheap compared to my t300. Not to mention all the different upgrade options with the eco system

    How long have you had your t300? As I have heard they are not that reliable.

    I have only had it a couple months as I just bought a ps4 but I have the TX with my Xbox one for about a year and never had an issue. All the issues I have heard about were with earlier generation models and havent heard of any issues as of late with newer generation

    I had the very same dilemma as your having now...
    I did a lot of research and the thrustmaster t300rs IMO is far superior in feedback than the G29 but I'm sure those users will chip in and add any advice.
    I owned the G25 many moons ago on the PS3 and wasn't convinced back then but that was all there was in quality wise.......
    I chose the t300rs for what I wanted out of a wheel and yes I worried about reliability and cheap peddles but I'm more than happy with my choice and to be honest the pedals ain't that bad I just doubled up some thick camping mat for the brake pedal and bobs ya uncle feels a lot better.
    There is also loads of FFB settings on here for Pcars and I'm amazed at the feeling this what gives off which I doubt u will get with the G29 but again I'm going off of my experience with the older G25.
    Hope this helps u decide but go with the t300rs u won't regret it.

    I bought a T300 GTE a year ago as I preferred the buttons over the RS and I think it's a great wheel , mine had a noisy fan after about 7 months which if it was out of warranty id of sorted myself but I sent it back to thrustmaster and they sorted it , I was very happy with the service and a quick turnaround.

    Thanks, I think I may stick with the g29 for now and later get a t300 as it seems better than the g29.

    (I only got the g29 as it was on sale to 99.99 which is stupidly cheap.)

    I have both. From a question of taste, I prefered the T300 over the G29.
    My T300rs wheel base got crazy two weeks after the warranty expired, here is the last email I've got from Thrustmaster :

    Regarding your T300 RS.

    Thank you for the pictures provided.
    We have forwarded these pictures to our engineers and unfortunately there isn't much we could do.
    They have said that the issue doesn't seem repairable and we have no parts to send for this situation.
    Once more we are sorry for the inconvenience.

    And their recommendation was to buy another one.

    That seems quite poor customer service, was this recent or one of the older models of the t300 rs?
