    Excellent racing wheel

    I waited for for almost 10 years to decide that I wanted a racing wheel. When I looked at the options, I could really only afford one of the options. I simply can't afford $800.00. So, I saw reviews on of the wheels available. I could have bought a cheaper wheel, but the T80 was an absolutely worthless pile of nothing, and the T150 didn't inspire me that it was the best choice. I decided to not go for a $500 or more wheel that probably couldn't connect to the PS4. All of these decisions boiled down to two options. The T300 or the G29. I looked at the reviews, and I looked at the companies. It came down to this: The T300 is new, unproven, and has a LOT of major problems. But the G29, while based on a 10 year old blueprint, is proven, reliable, and made by a (mostly) good company. So, I saved up and bought it. I am not the most active in racing right now, but I have put some time in on it. It is much more powerful and much more accurate than my DFGT. The increase in data points has also created an increase in smoothness. It's really quite nice! I mounted it on my wheel stand that I built a few years ago. It's very, very simple. I bought a 6 foot 2 X 6, a 6 foot 2 X 4, and a 6 foot 1.25 X 6. I cut them into 24 inch sections, I put the 3 2 X 6 sections as the base, and screwed them together. I put two of the 2 X 4 sections as uprights, then put the 1.25 X 6 section on top to lock the wheel onto. The extra pieces were used to add triangulation bracing. One important thing was to keep the cord coming out of the pedals from smashing up against the back of the stand. I put some triangulation at the end to keep the pedals away from the back. The one thing I did not do was tie the chair into the frame. This allows the stand to move away when I am getting excited. But, it is compact enough I can easily store it out of the way, which keeps the others in my house happy (er) ;) Enjoy!

    I jumped on a $199 sale as I couldn't bring myself to pay $400 for something I'd play maybe once a week. I was a little bummed because it was supposed to come with the 6spd shifter as well for $199. No matter, at half off it's not a big deal to not get the $60 shifter. It's mostly plastic, but it's nice and solid. I didn't build a race rig yet, so I had to place the pedals on the carpet. There's a flip bar just underneath the pedals and helps it stay in the carpet real well. If it's going to be mounted on a flat surface, just flip it back in. Steering seems fine for the time being. The "leather" on the wheel feels nice as well. There's a tiny spot on the wheel where my thumb seems to rub a little awkwardly, but I usually use my racing gloves so I don't feel it. Buttons are solid. I still have no idea what to do with the spinning red wheel on the right, but that's no big deal. It just looks cool HAHA Wheel is a bit noisy as expected from a belt driven system. My wife knows when I'm approaching the S turn from the other room. Bunch of vibration and turning of the wheel can be heard. This will all eventually be downstairs in the game room, so that won' matter much either. If you won't have a race rig or playseat, you'll definitely want a sturdy table to mount this on. It's currently mounted on an 1"x45"x45" thick solid wood table. The mounts work fine, but on heavy turns I find myself lifting the table at times. A proper playseat or race rig should solve that problem. I assume a wide desk would work as well. I'd just use caution if your desk is made of pressed wood. I've seen pictures where the wheel just yanks right off leaving what looks like a huge bite mark on the edge of the desk. The wheel is definitely worth the $200 I paid for it. The wheel goes on sale at least once a year. If the regular price of $400 is to much, just wait it out.

    Limited in Functionality

    The Logitech - G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for the PlayStation 4 looks very appealing and boast some nice features but its usefulness is severely limited for the current racing titles. I bought this with hopes of playing a few of the racing titles (NFS & Drive club primarily) for the PS4. I was disappointed in several features of the hardware: 1. USB cable must be connected to the console - the cord is short. You could leverage a USB cable extender. But that shouldn't be required. In my opinion, this should be wireless (IR or Bluetooth). 2. The standard PS4 controller buttons on the wheel do not always function as they should (XO∆ 'Option', etc.) e.g. when you insert NFS and attempt to operate the console or navigate the menus of the game using the wheel, you get no response from the directional buttons, nor any other input buttons except for the PS button to return to the Home Screen of the console. 3. There is no list of compatibility regarding current game titles. 4. The mounting brackets on the bottom of the steering wheel have limited range. I could not mount it to a desk that is approx. ~ 2" thick. It was just maybe 2/3 of an inch too thick. There are several positives to this accessory, however they do not outweigh the caveats in my opinion. Especially for the price point of this device. I did get it on sale which saved some money, but it is still too expensive for the limitations. This device should cost no more than $100 dollars, max. Not $300. The only game I was able to fully operate with this accessory was Drive Club. It's useless for Drive Club Bikes, but the standard car simulator works great. The wheel and pedals (Accelerator, Brake, & Clutch) and very responsive. The paddle-shifters are a nice touch too, and are also very responsive. Really puts you in the drivers seat. You can use the clutch to initiate drifts (as you could in a real vehicle) and gear up or down, which is a nice feature. Turning with the wheel, while very responsive, can feel a bit stiff at higher speeds when entering a corner. At first I thought it could have been just me, but my friends and kids thought the same thing when they played as well. In summary, the Logitech - G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for PlayStation 4 has the potential to be a very nice accessory for the PS4 console if the vendor corrects the problems and updates the compatible titles. It is a bit pricey for it to only fully work with one game.

    The good: For being my first wheel with forcefeedback and the product being considered on the lower tier for a sim racing experience I was pleasantly suprised. Its stronger than I thought it was going to be and looks great on the desk. I wanted a wheel that would play ps3/ps4 and PC and so far no problems on any system sans the Ps3 because the wheel is newer, I had to tell a couple games it was the g27/wheel from logitechs last generation. An understandable issue so no complaint there. Just some buttons wont work with older games as they are not mapped. Set the wheel to PS4 when using on the PC. The led's work fine on most games. I dont look at them much anyway so when they dont I dont notice. With a few adjustments in my games i can get a consistant feel and control. Feels great in hands and was a great replacement for thrustmaster t80 wheel. Will however be upgrading once i get my monies worth out of purchase. The Bad: The price. I bought it because it was in the store and after only minor research. Had a coupon which helped, but have been learning more about other wheels and consider this to be a 300$ purchase. Not 400$+ after tax. The clacking. Not having experienced other force feedback wheels I dont know if its common. But going over brake markers is quite loud. And im concerned but cant confirm that it might wear on the internal gears over time. Been using for two months now.

    Easy to hook up very easy to use, it's a very realistic wheel that is force feedback and pressurized pedals, I recommend this Logitech G29 to anyone. I bought this on a pre Black Friday sale. I was supposed to get stuff for project cars 2 and a add-on shifter for for the Logitech G29 force-feedback wheel well I didn't get the stuff for project cars 2 like I was supposed to and the shifter! It's sold out they said so I got a rain check they told me at the store that they may not even get any in! I was told to call Best Buy headquarters and talk to them about the shifter and the project cars 2 stuff and they were so rude I've never had anyone so rude to me ever before and then they transferred me to a lady about the project cars 2 downloads and she said it takes up to 24 hours well it's been past 24 hours and I haven't received anything in my email yet! Like I said I recommend the Logitech G29 force-feedback wheel but I don't know about buying it from Best Buy after the way they treated me and I didn't get the stuff that I was supposed to get when I bought the wheel.

    Great wheel , but can they all get along?

    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

    If you want to get more immerse in you racing game this is a good way to start. I bought Gran Turismo VR for Christmas. Then I saw this on sale and decided to go all the way and buy the Steering wheel. I had the Logitech G27 with the PS3 but that steering wheel was not compatible with the PS4. For years I missed playing racing games with the steering wheel but I finally full the trigger and bought the G29. The feedback you get with this is amazing, you will have much better control of your car and a much better experience overall. I went crazy and built a cockpit to roll in front of the TV whenever I’m going to play a racing game.

    A durable wheel for pro sim racers

    I ultimately chose this over the Thrustmaster T300 due to reliability concerns, and it works well so far after one month with the PS3 and Gran Turismo 6. Force feedback is not that strong, but it's smoother and MUCH quieter than the Driving Force GT. The LED shift indicator lights do not work with the PS3 games I tried (GT6, F1 2012, and DiRT 3), and neither do any stick shifter attachments, but it does have support for both PS4 and PC. Pedals are high in quality but the brake pedal is VERY stiff and requires quite a bit of foot force to push it down for full braking power. I also think the "Options" and "Share" buttons could be better placed as I occasionally hit the PS button on accident instead of the "option" button when trying to pause a race. Despite these minor issues, this is still a really good wheel for those who want to ready themselves for a PS4 OR currently have a PS4.
