    Question Steering Wheel

    Hi,

    Can you please let me know your suggestion on what steering wheel I should get?
    Currently I have the Logitech G27, but went faulty twice (loose calibration) and the retailer seems to be willing to refund the cost. Shall I get the G29 of G920 (both seems to have the same hardware of the G27) or there are other brands models in the same price range?

    thanks

    In that price range you can only go two ways: Logitech G29 or Thrustmaster T300. Opinions are somewhat fiftyfifty but I favor the G29 for my PS4. I am also looking for Fanatec Wheels but a complete set wil cost you around € 1700... For me, as I am only starting to play this game, the Fanatec is not an option right now.

    thanks for your feedback. The advantage of the T300 is that the wheel is detachable and you can buy add-on wheels

    Do a search on this forum on the G29 and T300 before you buy. Read about other people's experience with the wheels and decide than. I can understand the add-on matter but you'lld have to upgrade the pedals and buy a second wheel. The T300 won't be in the same price range when you do.

    Be aware that the T300 base pedals are quite crappy and the G29 is a more complete package in that sense, but the wheel is a lot better in the T300. Unless you can fork out for the Integral version, might be a best solution to go for G29 at this price.

    I agree with konnos.

    I would honestly only buy the T300 over the G29 if you intend on buying one of the better pedal sets available to go with it. If you would be sticking with the standard 2-pedal T300 set, then I honestly believe the G29 is a more complete and better package.

    thanks to all .... but what about reliability? My G27 disappointed me, I had two different brand new wheels and both failed after 6 months. The problem is with optical encoder in the wheel becoming loose thus the sensor will return incorrect readings of the position of the wheel.

    There are horror stories from both sides, I don't really think one is significantly safer to buy in terms of reliability than the other.

    As far as I know, they fixed that with a metal optical encoder.

    Ive had a G25 and G27 and Im advised thos ehave about the same mechanism solutions as the latest Logitech wheels.

    Based on that - T300 all the way. There is no comparison. Even if its slightly out of budget range I would then save up until it is in budget.

    There is a big difference in FFB quality and how quick you can feel and correct a potential slide.

    I dont think it will make you quicker - some of the fastest guys out there are on inexpensive wheels.

    Downside though is the basic T300 comes with terrible pedals - the G27 ones are much better.

    If you already like sim racing - I would probably opt for the T300RS GT edition which has better pedals - I would not even think about going Logitech despite the cost difference:
