Received for unbiased review...I Hope Logitech views this listing...I will start by saying that this product's construction is excellent and mostly very sturdy. It even has leather around the steering wheel. But read on...I have spent HOURS (even days) trying to find games that will work with this device. There are very few because instead of making this controller widely compatible with game controllers, they decided to do everything proprietary. I had to search the web for programs written by other frustrated people to get this device to emulate an XBox360 controller so that it will work with their Windows 10 games. All this did was create more frustration because it messed around with game controller order designations. Designations that Microsoft has decided to hide from view and hide any possible way to change the controller order. Now my other controller will no longer take the first device order, and will no longer work with my games (meaning that I will have to forcibly remove all the drivers and re-install them).I'm angry, because this is a simple thing that could have been easily done in Logitech's overly complicated software called G-Hub. Or in Microsoft's game controller settings (people have been complaining about the controller order issue since Windows 7).Logitech's G-Hub software also failed to recognize the device when I first plugged it in (I have other Logitech devices that use G-Hub). Nothing I did would get it to be recognized. I had to uninstall G-Hub and re-install it.Good luck finding a Game to use with the G923 that won't cost you hundreds of dollars after already paying over $400.00 for this device. Logitech, why on earth would you spend so much time and money designing something that will be so poorly compatible? Larger reach means more sales - doesn't that make sense? This would be easily fixable in your software - add a controller emulation toggle and a device order selector.Most of it feels like a very premium device, but if.
Coming from an older Driving Force GT, this G923 steering wheel offers a significant amount of refinements and improvements to the mounting design; I can tell that a lot of care went into the cable management on the underside of the wheel and the clamping mechanism is derivative of older designs; It's easy to tuck away some cable length underneath the steering wheel and it helps protect the connections from over bending.Depending on your level of commitment to sim racing, you do get a great variety of mounting options with this set. For now, I do have this secured to a dining table and it's fine for casual use; There are definitely more secure options with racing cockpits or wheel stands available where you bolt down the set. With the pedal set, I do find that the rubber feet do a good job at keeping the pedals planted and adequate enough for hardwood/laminate flooring.I appreciate the compatibility between Playstation and PC; With installing the G-HUB software on my windows PC, It was pretty straightforward to plug-in with one USB connection required and the software instantly recognized the wheel without issues. For newer games like DiRT Rally 2.0, this is wheel is automatically recognized and can be used to navigate through menus easily; I did find that for some older titles, the steering wheel needed be enabled after launching game and buttons needed to be mapped. There will be some customization required on your end as not all games do support 900 degrees of rotation and driving initially will be wonky; For certain games it is easier to control with 540 degrees of rotation and the customization in the G-HUB software helps quickly adjust wheel settings.Performance wise, I do find that this wheel is naturally smoother and quieter than the Driving Force GT; The large metal paddle shifts have a nice tactile click and good response time; Also, the leather wrapped steering wheel has a good solid feel and weight with secure grips through agressive driving manuv.
I have about two complete sets of Logitech racing wheels, pedals and shifters collected over the last two decades, all for PC, and they have worked wonderfully. This latest set of racing peripherals offers some extras, and works with PC, Playstation and XBox. The equipment connects through USB cables, and includes a three-pedal floor set (if you're driving an automatic vehicle, you can ignore the clutch!) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel that feels as good as the ones in my cars. The wheel has shifters behind it, and a number of buttons on the hub, spokes, and back plate panel. Installing and configuring the set took less than five minutes and it was recognized on both the PC and Playstation 4 I tried it on.The wheel and pedals are smooth and easy to work with; while my last set of Logitech steering wheel and (metal!) pedals was amazing (for the time), this set is better. Much better. The force feedback is strong when required, and even on routine driving it's got that subtle feel that makes driving a tactile process. The brake pedal is progressive, adding resistance as you press on it. I worked through quite a few games on both my platforms, from F1 to Nascar to WRC and had a blast with each. The wheel needs clamping securely a table to get the best experience, and when properly used and the force feedback is dialed in just right, it's an amazing set of peripherals.This Logitech wheel and pedal set is not cheap by any means, but it is the best built set I've ever used, and based on the fun factor and the amount of time I plan to play my favorite racing and driving games, it's actually a bargain!
I've always wanted to own one of these racing wheel made by Logitech. This G923 model provides exceptional next level experience for those games you thought you've mastered with a keyboard. Out of the box, I kind of got shook because it has a PlayStation logo on it and not PC. Looking closer, the one I order is compatible with both. The wheel itself has a nice leather wrap to it that feels like an automotive steering wheel. The only thing about it is that the circumference of the wheel is substantially smaller than the real ones. Perhaps it may be a little to operate for those who are bigger hands and arms. Materials are nice and solid but I'm always scared that the wheel will fall off because when I get out of my seat, I hold on to the top of the wheel to help me up, just like what you would do on a lowered vehicle. The motors on this wheel is nice and strong and truly adjustable both in the Logitech G Hub software and games. The pedals are also adjustable and the feel of it is amazing. Brake pedal is stiff which is nice. I will need to get the shifter for the ultimate rig and have it mounted on a custom frame. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of games supports TRUEFORCE technology as we're in the early stage for this design and am looking forward to other games implement this. Overall, the wheel is outstanding with the driver feedback and will need a lot of tweaking both in game and software to adjust the feel the way you want it to be.Pros:New TechnologyWheel material qualityPedal qualityCons:Size of wheelLimited supported games with TRUEFORCE
This G923 is a solid Five Star racing wheel with pedals for the PS5, PS4 and PC the only problem is there are limited games available right now that support TRUEFORCE technology.When playing games without Truefoce support the G923 feels identical to previous Logitech G29/G920 wheels and pedals. The force feedback is decent but rather erratic at times making the whole wheel shake and rattle. Of course you can turn down the force feedback settings but that defeats the purpose of a FFB steering wheel.TRUEFORCE technology on the G923 add many more sensations you can feel through the wheel however you need to have a TRUEFORCE supported game to experience them. The steering wheel will vibrate to simulate the throbbing engine ... the higher you rev the engine the stronger the vibration ... it's a cool feature that add realism to the virtual driving experience. The only thing that would make it even better is to have a gaming seat with TRUEFORCE built into it. That way the steering wheel and seat would both vibrate to the rpm of the engine.Playing driving games with TRUEFORCE support are more realistic, convincing and immersive. After experiencing TRUEFORCE you'll wonder why there are only a handful of games that officially support it .... Gran Turismo Sport, Assetto Corsa Competizione and Grid.Aside from the Wheel Logitech made slight improvements to the pedals ... or should I say pedal. The brake pedal on the G923 gets a progressive spring which replaces the rubber stopper on the G29/G920. The idea behind the spring was to make the brake pedal feel more realistic "Like a Hydraulic Brake" so the more you press on the brake pedal the harder it gets. The new spring loaded brake pedal does feel more progressive initially however once your past the 50% point the resistance is to strong and when fully depressed it feels a bit clunky. While this is a step in the right direction and a good attempt at adding more realism to braking it feels like a first gen product whic.
