So I'm looking at a wheel to buy and I've got it sorted down to two wheels w/ pedals & shifter. Unless anyone can lead me in the directions of a better wheel w/ all these goodies for around the same price, I'll be sticking with these. I'll also have to invest in a PC desk (possibly chair too) so I'll be close to $500-$550 no matter what wheel I choose.

Logitech

(PC & PS3 Compatible, Xbox compatible w/ adapter shown below)
Logitech G27 Wheel + H-Pattern Shifter + Pedals - $299.99
XCM Converter (Xbox Compatible) - $69.99
Total - $370.00

buy real racecar = priceless lol


both have 900* steering, both look good, both cost roughly the same.. id personally go the CSR route.. i dont think the logitechs pedals have adjustable springs in them to hake them feel like real pedals (what i hate most about the MS wheel.

Yeah mines not big at all either. I'd have to do some re-arranging to fit everything in here. We'll see. I'm not 100% sure I'm buying a wheel just yet, just interested.

I'd rather get the G27. Its cheaper and more user friendly. Also, the shifters are quieter and the wheel rim isnt thick as hell like the Fanatec. Its up to you man, but I'd recommend the Logitech for playing rFactor and other PC games. Smile

Here's some pros cons I've heard.

Pros
Fanatec Pedals are customizaable for the user.
Logitech Wheel is completely round (better for drifting)

Cons
Fanatec wheel isn't completely round so it's a little weird.
I don't think the Logitech Pedals are customizable.
Logitech doesn't have FFB with the adapter for Xbox use

The best bit of advice i can give you Falken is to give the converter a wide birth
It fools your xbox into thinking you're using a wired controller and sends rumble signals to the Logitech so the wheel pulls left and right, like FFB, BUT it is not FFB and the wheels do not react naturally

InsideSimRacing did a review (yes they are very fanatec biased) but most gamers that know how a wheel should react think the converter is garbage and only for those with a logitech already and dont want to shell out for a new wheel to play with Bill Gates' offering

As a fanatec owner i'll tell you, if you dont like the rim, grow a pair and change it lol
my PWTS has the momo i fitted to my 200sx and sierras on it (similar setup to BYracing) and i have no complaints about the csr pedals either, the Porsche shifters however are cheap nasty shit! the csr's are supposed to be better but are the same design just in metal... the £150-200 Club sport shifters make my winkle tingle

The logitech is geared apposed to all fanatecs are belt drives (except the original porsche wheel which is not xbox compatible anyway) which is MUCH quieter

If its for the xbox then there is no real choice but the fanatec (probs why they cost too much)

If its for everything else
the Logitech shifter is miles better than the standard fanatec fare
the pedals are swings and roundabouts, the logi's are more solid feeling but the csr's are adjustable
the wheels themselves perform in a similar way (g25-27 vs GT2) with the fanny being quieter, but the csr being better all round then both

For pc-ps3 i would recomend the G25-27 as the price difference is bigger then the benefits of a fanatec
But for xbox..... Mad

I would probably be getting it for PC because my Xbox is in another room. I am looking at the G27 because I like the shifter, and the fact that the wheel itself is perfectly round. If I were getting a wheel for both Xbox and PC, I'd prefer the Fanatec. But as it sits right now, I'd prefer the Logitech.

Don't get me wrong, the Fanatec is an awesome wheel, I just don't like how it's a perfect circle so it wouldn't be the best for drifting, and it's another $100 over the Logitech.

If a perfect circle is your deciding factor, your doing it all wrong

I would recommend waiting until the next Gen consoles come out so you can get one of the latest wheels but if you want one now to use on Xbox, PS3 and PC Get the Fanatec as the adapter for the Logitech just gives you a huge analogue stick as Mosuke explained. Also if you don't like the Wheel Rim for the Fanatec mod it and stick on an actual wheel like a fake Nardi or some shit.

I'm thinking of getting a G27 for my PC. Will it work on just about any computer/laptop?

As long as you have the right software it should.
