A simulator-grade racing wheel, the Logitech G27 Racing Wheel is designed to deliver the definitive sim racing experience for the PC and PLAYSTATION 3.

The six-speed shifter with push-down reverse gear allows you to quickly choose exactly the right gear. New RPM/shift indicator LEDs let you know when you should shift gears; the 28-cm (11”) leather-wrapped rim provides hours of comfortable, true-to-life racing; and steel gas, brake and clutch pedals deliver precise control for heightened realism.

Product Description

Sliding around a gravelly curve or screaming through Monaco, dual-motor force feedback and a six-speed shifter make the world's greatest circuits feel closer than ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Wheel.. needs better support in GT5 29 Dec 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this wheel for 1 reason - Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3. This wheel adds an enormous amount to that game, but it's not perfect. While most functions work, there are a couple of things that don't due to the lack of official support by Polyphony Digital (makers of GT5).

Before I get into the GT5 specifics, let me say that this is one impressive gaming wheel: real leather wheel, solid build quality, great stability from the brackets, and strong quiet, Force Feedback. If it wasn't for the hardware issue that I've had (and the fact that it seems to be common), I'd have given it the full 5 stars.

Here's what works, out of the box, in GT5:
- 900 degree steering
- Force Feedback
- Pedals (including the clutch - no triangle press required)
- Gears (both H-Pattern Shifter and Paddles)
- LED Gear Shift Indicator Lights
- Standard PS Controller buttons on Gear Shifter
- Standard D-Pad on Gear Shifter.
- Middle 2 Red buttons on Gear Shifter (Select & Start).

Here's what doesn't:
- The six "Face" buttons on the wheel. The top 2 work, but can't be re-assigned.
- Outside red buttons on Gear Shifter. Believe these should be L3 & R3, but do nothing.
- Can't customise the buttons at all in GT5.
- Can't adjust the force-feedback strength.

Tricks I've found:
- The clutch needs to be pressed to start working in each race. If you push it at any time, then you need to continue using it to use the H-Pattern Shifter.
- If you press the clutch, and then start using the paddles for gears, the clutch will be de-activated.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun you can have with your clothes on? 27 Aug 2010
By Eric
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are a big fan of driving games like Gran Turismo, Dirt 2, Need for Speed Shift and some of the PC's more hardcore sims such as Live for Speed then do yourself a favour and save up for this wheel. I've been using this wheel for about a week now with Need for Speed Shift (which is surprisingly an excellent game) and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

Initially I found it more difficult to contol the cars using the wheel, but once you get over the alienation of not using a control pad it's actually much more fun and intuitive (especially if you already drive). Driving the cars has become much more involved, and once you start getting the hang of things like feathering the throttle when the back end starts to step out round corners and quickly applying opposite lock to correct the slide then you really almost feel as though you are driving these high performance cars. Switch to the in cockpit view on either of these games (which is excellent on both), and it really helps with the illusion and game immersion.

Its really strange, but after a decent session using the wheel (and pedals/gearshifter of course) and then driving your real car, everything feels very strange - being able to feel the inertia and road surface through the tyres/steering wheel seems much more pronounced, almost alien, because you can't really feel these things realistically when using the G27. It's almost as if using the G27 is real driving, and driving your car is becoming this weird new experience! It's a very odd sensation, but one that is testament to the G27's usability and pseudo-realism.

I really think, that to an extent, using the G27 could go some way to improving an amateur drivers ability to drive a performance car around a track.

3.0 out of 5 stars Calibration problems 20 Oct 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This wheel is a superb addition to your racing games. It adds an extra dimension to the race.. When its working that is.
Unfortunately if you do any research into it (go to Logitech UK support community and you will read many many complaints of the same calibration problem. The wheel can last for months before the problem occurs or it can happen in a matter of hours.Its a hardware problem it seems.. could have been fixed at the factory,and is fixable if you want to strip the wheel apart yourself,but its more likely to be changed for you under warranty. Anyway final word.. brilliant wheel, had mine for 4 months before it needed replacing. Make your own mind up before buying..

3.0 out of 5 stars Logitech,not up to your usual standard. 17 Jan 2011
By Pete V
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
First the good news (sort of).

I won't bore you with all the details... other than to say my much loved G25 wheel went into meltdown (a known issue, that Logitech couldn't/didn't rectify). It was only just inside the warranty period, so I was unsure what they would suggest when I contacted their customer support. They almost immediately offered me a replacement, which was very kind of them.

I was told a G27 wheel would be the only replacement they could provide to replace my G25 (Logitech no longer sell the G25... I wonder why?), which seemed a good deal to me, and it arrived 2 days later, having been sent from The Netherlands! Excellent service Logitech.

Now the bad news...
I was unaware of the "problem" Logitech have had with the G27 wheel, until my one day old model started playing up. I went online and did a little research and easily found the answer. It appears nearly every G27 has the problem, either from new or it develops some while later... Grr!

What is the "problem" I refer to, you ask?
Well, as you clock up the virtual miles racing on your chosen racetrack, the steering gradually creeps more and more off-centre. After a few laps you find the virtual car you are driving only goes in a straight line if the steering wheel is in the turn position. It starts off only a degree or two, then gradually increases. On the game I first discovered this anomally, F1 2010 (PC), after about 5 laps of any course it becomes virtually impossible to drive as the paddle shifts behind the wheel are so far out of "true" you cannot use them, not to mention all those buttons on the wheel being impossible to use.

It is SUCH a shame, as this would be a really GREAT product without this issue.
