    Nice addition to G29

    I bought this shifter to go along with my G29 race wheel and it doesn't disappoint. This is the first shifter I've ever owned so I can't really compare it to anything else, but from my time with it I'd have to say it does exactly what it's suppose to do. I use it mainly on my ps4 with games like driveclub and project cars. Nice effortless shifting action although the push down reverse takes some getting use to(but how often do you use reverse in driving games). I would definitely recommend looking into mounting it rather than clamping. The clamps are strong, but after buying the wheel stand pro to go along with my setup there is no way I could go back to clamping it down. The wheel stand allows you to use the screw holes on the bottom of the shifter and wheel to screw it down and it doesn't move an inch. The shifter seems very sturdy and well built. I only hope more games come out soon that use it. The only complaints that I would have with this shifter is that it should have came packaged with the G29 for the hefty price tag it carries(399.99). Forking out another 50 bucks on top of that for the shifter is kind of crazy considering that the G27 came with it. Also I wish it had a sequential shift option like the G25 had. It's like your paying more for less. With those small gripes aside let's not forget that this is a review for the shifter alone, and with that being said it's definitely more enjoyable flying through the gears with this baby so i'd have to recommend it for the avid race fan.

    Decent addition for the steering wheel.

    I bought this together with a Logitech G29 for the PS4. The shifter is a good addition but it is not completely necessary. It has 6 gears and revere. Playing with it could get weird. In Gran Turismo the cars that have paddle shifter can be control with the paddles or the stick, however you are limited to 6 speeds on the stick. The cars with manual transmission will require you to depress the clutch before shifting. The problem is you get no mechanical feedback from the shifter so timing the clutch release and the shifting can sometimes get messed up in the heat of the game. Once you get the timing correctly it it will work and shift properly in the game. Mechanically the shift feels great and it works just like a real shifter. I would recommend it but only if you like driving a manual transmission and you have the extra cash. Otherwise just use the paddle shifters.

    Must have with the G29, built well , mounts beautiful and adds major realism Here’s my review of the g29 wheel. So after doing extensive reading on buyers Reviews and major company Previews on different wheels for the PS4 , I decided on the G29 logitech racing wheel I decided to buy it even at its highest price of $300 and change. Excited to play the racing games on my PS4 Pro, Gran Turismo was the main reason I wanted the wheel, , . The game was a decent game in the series great for this wheel, GTS is Ok..... other games not so much, Sony gave most of the rights to Thrustmaster designers for their wheels, and games, I was disappointed to find out that most my games are compatible with the G 29. And I think my biggest problem with the wheel, is the price I paid the fact that I had just bought the new Xbox X and I have to buy a whole new wheel just to enjoy Forza, wallet Breaker . Great wheel other than the non ability of cross platform setup. The wheel and pedals themselves are extremely well built and I hope they can just get MORE compatible games . I do own a VR and with this wheel in VR mode is pretty intense 7.8/10 Just do your research

    A high-quality but costly shifter

    I recently took the plunge and bought corresponding Logitech steering wheel and pedal sets for both the Xbox One and the PS4 on sale at Best Buy and even though I typically use the automatic transmission option when I play racing games, I thought I might as well try to make the experience more realistic by shifting gears myself. That meant adding this Logitech Driving Force Shifter to the mix, and I highly recommend it to serious racing simulation fans on either game console. It is a little expensive, but it's easy to set up and works flawlessly, giving you short, precise shifts up and down, including reverse. I'm still trying to get used to shifting in my races, but it's starting to pay off with faster lap times. You might want to give it a try yourself if you are looking for the ultimate racing experience on your Xbox One or PS4.

    Logitech shifter

    This shifter does not feel like a real shifter in a car. The quality of the knob itself is fine, the faux leather adds a nice touch. But the shifter does not have any resistance and when you are shifting, it is easy to easy to drop into the wrong gear. I've modified my shifter using a 3d printed resistor plate, but the gates are short, so it didn't help much. I've driven a car manual transmission with short shifter and this feels nothing like it. I badly wanted this to work so I can get that old time feeling again but I feel let down by this product. Using the paddle shifters on the wheel is actually better, so I wouldn't recommend this product if you are looking for a real feel when shifting.

    I purchased this device to complete my setup, it is being used with my Logitech g920 and is mounted to the playseat shifter attachment. The shifter feels a bit flimsy in my opinion, especially compared with the wheel. I wish it had an aluminum construction instead of plastic, but at it's price point I can't complain! Enthusiasts will probably want to go with the thrustmaster, I can't imagine this model lasting very long under long term use. I would recommend to a first time buyer due to the price point, but nothing more.

    Strangely, the older version, Logitech g27 gearshift, as big as it was, was much more functional and flexible. I needed a gear shifter for a 10 speed truck configuration. It couldn't function as such, not sure why. It wouldn't work on the game, A.T. It took no effort on the part of the manufacturer to put three buttons on it for range selection. Felt comfortable though, shifted smoothly and was able to change knob but not the shaft for that longer reach from the ground. I need a logitech g27 gearshift.

    I bought this alongside the Logitech G920, and this was by-far the better of the two purchases. It had a great faux leather feel to the handle and the mounts for it were very strong. I did have issue; however, with the plastic-y clunkiness of the shifter's internals. Shifting felt rather weak, the throw was so short you didn't know what gear you were in, and it made an annoying, cheap sounding noise when doing so. I liked it despite those minor issues and just wish that it was part of a better line of wheels.
