PC GAMER (US) - - HARDWARE -

Logitech makes just two racing wheels, and both are es­sen­tially iden­ti­cal. The G920 and G29 are both PC-com­pat­i­ble but the for­mer is deigned to work with the Xbox One, while the G29 is com­pat­i­ble with PS3 and PS4.

Aside from this, the only dif­fer­ence be­tween the two is that the G29 also in­cludes an on-wheel gear-shift in­di­ca­tor, which is the rea­son we’d rec­om­mend it over the G920 for PC users.

Oth­er­wise, this wheel of­fers a great bal­ance of fea­tures. You get a proper metal-clad set of three ped­als, so there’s no need to go up­grad­ing straight away as with some al­ter­na­tives. And the wheel base feels sturdy and has a built-in mount­ing sys­tem that’s by far the quick­est and eas­i­est to set up of all the wheels in this test.

With its twin mo­tor, all-gear drive sys­tem able to de­liver 2.1 Nm of torque, the G29 pro­vides a de­cent level of force feed­back. It lacks the power and smooth­ness of the best, but it’s quiet and pro­vides much of the sense of re­al­ism you’d hope for. Ba­si­cally, the G29 has a lot go­ing for it. It of­fers a lot for its price, plus it has the eas­i­est-to-use soft­ware in our test. If you’re look­ing to in­vest in more of a racing sys­tem, though, then its lack of ver­sa­til­ity is a lim­it­ing fac­tor.
