Been watching the price of this for the last month to play with froza horizon, and the best deal for a while was $250 for the wheel + shifter combo, so I figure $200 for the wheel/pedals alone is a slick deal. Last year though around this time it looks like BB had $200 for wheel and a free shifter.

Owned this for about a month before returning it. May have been a defective unit (don't think so) but just found it didn't really work well with forza 7. You really have to change too many settings between cars or at least when changing types of cars (muscle to formula one to track toy to truck) which made it very tedious and felt like I spent more time adjusting the wheel setting and tuning for each car than I did actually playing the game. It's also just a lot more work than you think to use a wheel for 10-15 minutes straight on Nurburgring. I also didn't feel like it quite captured the feel of driving either (changed lots of settings as well). The build quality is good but the lack of save profiles to keep various settings and just extra hassle involved with the wheel made me ultimately go back to just using a controller... and I rarely ever return a product.
That's actually more of an issue with Forza 7's wheel support. And if driving for 15 minutes was a struggle, the force feedback must have been set way too high.

I've had this wheel on PC for a year and play a variety of games - from Forza Horizon 3 to F1 2017 to Assetto Corsa to Euro Truck Simulator 2 - and after initial setup the only time I need to adjust the wheel settings is when switching from a 900° rotation game like Forza Horizon or Assetto Corsa to a 540° game like Dirt Rally or 360° game like F1.

Is this wheel compatible with windows 10? Someone told me that windows 10 will corrupt the wheel ?
That person was mistaken. I've been using the G29 with Windows 10 for a year without issue.

I did alot of research and I ended up with the thrustmaster t300 gt. I play it on pc .handles well once you get used to it. Assembly is hella easy too. Wonder how this g9 handles compared to mines.
The G29 doesn't feel as smooth to turn, but has more immediate feedback. The G29 pedals feel much better.

I've been doing research into racing wheels etc so I get that this is nice and I want force feedback etc. Is there a more budget friendly way to get into this? I mostly want something my 5 year old(and I) can play Forza with. Like maybe old console controllers or something.

Edit: I mostly game on PC.
I think this wheel is in the sweet spot of price, features, performance, and durability for a new wheel. You sacrifice a lot by going slightly cheaper, and you're not going up get a better wheel without spending a lot more.

While it's a significant investment, it's totally worth it over the time you spend with it. I was on the fence about getting a wheel for years, but finally getting one caused me to discover a love for driving games I didn't know I had. And my kids absolutely love it.

Your cheapest option for a decent wheel is finding a used Logitech Driving Force GT for ~$80. It won't feel as smooth to turn, it won't be as quiet, there's no clutch pedal, and you get a sequential shifter rather than paddle shifters with an optional H-shifter, but it's the lowest price for a decent wheel.

You could also look for other used Logitech wheels, like the G25 or G27. But I feel like they need to be a lot less than $200 for me to get a used wheel over a new G29 that's smoother and quieter.

I posted a deal yesterday for the T150 Pro for $162.49 if you're interested, mine should be arriving tomorrow.

https://slickdeals.net/f/12218956-thrustmaster-t150-pro-racing-wheel-with-t3pa-wide-3-pedal-set-ps4-ps3-pc-162-49
The T150 unfortunately feels much cheaper due to the plastic wheel rim, compared to the G29's leather wrapped rim. It also requires a noisy fan for cooling, the pedals don't feel as nice, historical durability hasn't been great, and the add-on shifter is 3x the cost of the Logitech.

I'm not trying to be negative, and I sincerely hope you love your new wheel. But I feel like there are compelling reason to spend the extra on the G29.

I thought shifter would be cool but I rarely use it. Clutch doesnt do anything on Gran Turismo. On Drive Club, you'd actually go into neutral when you clutch or shift out. At $200, wait for shifter.

This is a really good deal, but I do want anyone considering this to keep in mind, we're very close to BF. Last year, all major retailers, not just Best Buy, had this + shifter for $199. If you absolutely don't want the shifter, go for it, but if you do want it, please wait a couple weeks. I myself am in the market for this and waiting for BF.

Props to OP

Not sure how great BB return policy is but perhaps secure this now just in case and if BF reveals a better deal then return? (possible with BB?)

Thanks! I'm hoping to get Horizon 3 during the holiday season. I may just completely cheap out and get an old Forza and wheel for my Xbox 360 until I can spend some real money.
Horizon 3 is great! I played it on PC with a G29 wheel 99% of the time. While a wheel isn't required, it greatly added to my enjoyment. With a controller and chase cam, I feel like I'm playing a driving game. With a wheel and interior cam, I feel like I'm actually driving the car.

And on PC there's a wealth of great driving games, from Assetto Corsa to F1 2017/2018 to Dirt Rally to Euro Truck Simulator.

Here's a fairly good review of the different wheels and pedal systems:
https://www.techradar.com/news/be...ec-vs-hori

tl;dr: g29 old tech, gear driven but has good pedals and leather coated wheel.


for a better driving experience go with T300 RS or start with T150 and upgrade with T3PA/Pro and T8HA

(T300 is belt driven and T150 is hybrid gear/belt driven, cross between g29 and t300)

if you don't care, get the g29

Oeiginally I was going to get the G29, I don't remember the specifics but back when I was researching the two, everything I was seeing was that the actual wheel performance/turning was inferior on the G29, something about it having a dead zone because of the type of wheels they are. This is why I opted for the T150 Pro, I'm not sure about the difference in materials between the Pro and non Pro version, but I know the Pro version has the set of pedals with 3 pedals compared to 2. This will be my first wheel and I'll be using it on PC.

I picked up this deal last year and am very happy with it and still use it very regularly (paid and extra $60 for the shifter). A few points that some may not be considering....

I had to buy a wheel stand, your setup needs to be comfortable ergonomically. Without it, you'll be in pain fairly quickly and will be sliding the pedals across the floor with each push.

Wheel implementation for many popular non-simulation games is simply terrible. I only use the wheel for drifting in Assetto Corsa. If I'm playing Forza or The Crew etc., the controller is the better choice (for drifting too).

The pedals are the only difference - the Pro has 3 pedals that are much, much better than the 2 on the non-Pro.

The T150 uses a gear drive and a belt drive. It offers more immediate feedback than pure belt drive without the feedback deadzone of pure gear drive. But it's not as smooth and quiet as pure belt, and it requires a fan for cooling unlike pure gear.

The G29 uses two gear drive motors - they provide more immediate feedback without requiring a cooling fan, but don't feel as smooth as pure belt. There is a slight feedback deadzone at top dead center, but it's not a big issue. At top dead center you're going perfectly straight where there normally aren't any forces acting on the wheel - I only really notice it when off-roading in Forza Horizon - and some games minimize it entirely - I don't notice it at all in Assetto Corsa.

In any case, I hope you like your new wheel and have a lot of fun driving with it. Smilie

yup wait for the shifter for $200. or better yet wait for the thrustmaster T300 with 3tpa pedal for $300. brushless motor, belt drive , no dead zone. super fast coutersteer for drifting.
Is that a deal you've seen (often) before? Shifter is another $110-150. Is it worth the ~$250 difference (to step up from G29 to T300)?

What's an affordable way to mount this? I don't really have the room or money to buy a bulky wheel stand.
