I take away 1 star for terrible, awful Logitech software. Two things: 1) Logitech Gaming Software stopped supporting the G27 back in version 5.1. It's on version 8.xx now. You will be running two version of LGS side by side if you use other Logitech hardware, like a gaming mouse that 90% of G27 owners probably have. 2) The download for the old version 5.10 LGS is broken for 64-bit users. If you choose to download the 64-bit version, you get the 32-bit version and it will not install on 64-bit Windows. Oh it acts like it installs and says it completes, but if you pay attention you will see it takes zero seconds to copy files during the install while it should take at least 5 seconds to copy files. After the install, you look for it on your Start Menu and nothing is there. Confusing. No where on the web page does it make mention of this problem. You might get lucky and find the correct 64-bit download posted in the Logitech forums without too much searching. I bet someone in the Amazon comments has a link to the download as well. Basically, it's typical Logitech: Great hardware, terrible software...just like their Harmony remotes and their mouse software until recently.
Other thoughts: The wheel-weight (how hard it is to turn the wheel when driving) is heavy. I don't have experience with force-feedback wheels except for an old Logitech Momo wheel, so maybe I'm just not used to it. However, I have driven several cars and trucks in my life and they are all pretty easy to turn with one hand. However, when using a G27 or the Momo, it's like driving a big-rig without power-steering. I'm pretty sure the STi I'm driving in-game has power steering, yet I'm getting a work-out with both arms trying to turn the wheel. Ya, I get it, I'm racing in the game so it should be hard, but it's just not realistic to me. Small little turns at 50mph in a car with power steering should be doable with like 1 finger. Some games have a wheel-weight setting (Assetto Corsa maybe? I forget because I've been trying lots of driving games), but I couldn't feel a difference between 0%, 10%, 90%, and 100%. I'll research this a bit and see if I can make it more realistic in the games I'm playing (Assetto Corsa, GRID, GRID2, DiRT2, Euro Truck Sim 2, F1 2012, etc.). Speaking of Assetto Corsa...wow this game makes it feel like every car has butter all over its tires. Turning the wheel a little bit at 35mph and I'm just squealing the tires and plowing through corners. This is supposedly accurate though...I guess the true sims take a while to get used to after playing Codemaster games a lot.
I own a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and play GT5 to hone my driving skills at HOME instead of on the streets where my wife says it's too dangerous. meh. So I know how a real sportscar performs and handles, the wheel, the shifting, etc, and this force-feedback wheel with GT5 is the closest I've ever played a video game to reality. Even better than the setups at arcades honestly.
I especially love the paddle-shifters - made of a really solid metal, its so awesome and responsive, and way better when playing manual transmission. The wheel also feels great to grip - just a little bit smaller than even a normal sports-wheel, but its still a good size.
Installing the components on a table or desk is easy. There are a ton of wires, and they go everywhere - so it does make it quite difficult to move the stuff around (I really wish the components were wireless, that should be their next edition). But the tightening screws have a 'pop-out spring' mechanism where the tightening knob pops out a bit to give you more grip length, you tighten it hand tight, then when you push it back in, a spring tightens it just a sinch more to be sure its super snug and doesn't move.
I recommend weighting whatever table or stand you attach this to. When you're driving at 100mph+, and you jerk the wheel, you will straight lift your table off the ground unless it's weighted. I put about 50lbs of weight-lifting weights on my table to keep it stable.
Overall amazing device, calibrates easily with GT5, and is so much fun. Extremely good materials, great construction, great design, good electronic components. Expensive no doubt, but worth it imo.
Keep in mind, it can only be truely appreciated if you can mount it to something securely, especially the pedals, so they're not moving around on you. I screwed the pedals into the hard plastic floor mat that covers the carpet in our office and this worked perfectly in my situation. I also have a flat overhang on the desk I mount the steering wheel to. I can't wait to upgrade to an actual racing seat setup :D
