Logitech G25 Racing Wheel
Advantages: Realistic feel, real materials used
At first i was a bit wary of spending a couple of hundred of hard earned pounds on a pc steering but eventually took the plunge and bought Logitech's G25 wheel. It is without doubt one of the best purchases i have ever made.
For a start the quality is second to none. The wheel itself is covered in leather and the paddle shifters behind the wheel are stainless steel. This adds more realism and comfort compared to the other wheels out on the market which are mainly cheap, plastic affairs.
The wheel comes with a gear shifter and a pedal set consisting of a throttle pedal, brake pedal and a clutch pedal, again in stainless steel. As soon as you hook it up to your favourite racing game you will be blown away by the feedback this steering wheels gives back. Loss of traction causes the steering wheel to feel 'light' and running over rumble strips on a race track certain gives you the feeling that it is all happening for real! The mechanism inside the steering wheel is belt driven, giving you multiple sensations to your finger tips allowing you to 'feel' how the car is handling. The first time i used this wheel i was completely blown away. You definately get all of the feelings that you would driving a car for real. As mentioned before, the G25 comes complete with a gear selector. The beauty of this seperate unit is that it can be clamped either side of the wheel, for user preference and Logitech have spoilt the user by providing 2 ways to change gear, Just a twist of a knob allows you to either use a sequential gearbox or a H pattern gear box.
The pedals are also very sturdy and durable. Under the pedal box is a carpet gripped which allows the unit to remain fixed to the floor preventing the pedals sliding away from your feet.
Although Logitech have released the new G27, this wheel is still up there with the best. A definate purchase for you armchair racers which you will not be disapointed with.
Summary: One of the best wheels that money can buy!
