Logitech g29 driving force

Racing simulators are simply not complete without having the total package in your living room. Playing any number of racing titles, such as ForzaProject CarsGran Turismo, and so on are simply not complete games until a player gets to experience a wheel shaking, spinning, and forcing precision turns on a quality wheel. Logitech, who has released successful racing wheels in the past, have one-upped themselves with the introduction of the G920 Racing Wheel and Driving Force Shifter.

As I mentioned in my Forza 6 review, half of the review was completed with this beautiful accessory. The pictures that I’ve taken don’t really do it justice as it only shows off the aesthetics. Starting with the primary portion of the accessory, the steering wheel itself is extremely durable. Weighing in at just under five pounds, there isn’t much concern with dropping this wheel by accident and having it break. I was actually surprised with how light it was because, upon first taking it out of the box, it certainly looked beefy. The wheel has both a USB and a power cable as the force feedback on the wheel requires an external power source. The USB cable is about ten feet long so there’s some decent range to hook it up to a table or a specially designed rig, but a USB extension cable may be needed depending on your setup in your preferred room of gaming. The actual wheel itself feels great to use even without the shifter as it has two wings for up and down shifting behind the wheel itself. While I liked having that shifter for road courses, the wings were far and away easier to use. The D-pad and buttons are all embedded onto the interior portion of the wheel and are easily reached with the thumbs, though it can take a bit to get used to where you have to reach in between races to navigate menus.

The pedal stand is probably the best constructed piece I’ve used with racing simulators not in an arcade or professional simulator.

Logitech G920 Driving Force — Review

The pedals are very sturdy and have great give to them. A player will not have to really work to push on any of them, yet they aren’t flimsy. I will admit that I don’t think I used the clutch pedal once since I was using the wing shifters on the wheel. The absolute best part of the pedals is the patented carpet grip system. On the bottom of the pedal stand is a column that rotates with a locking mechanism. Pulling the lock allows the column to rotate into position and reveal a strip that is designed to take hold of carpet simply with very small spikes, allowing players to not have to worry about losing grip on the pedals due to sliding. Attention to detail is the name of the game, as always, and Logitech shows that they are thinking about the complete picture.

The wheel and pedals are self-calibrating and this will occur as soon as all connections are made together. It’s important to make sure that the last thing that gets plugged in is the USB to the Xbox One or PC. Doing things out of order can mess up the calibration and cause some gameplay issues. I found this out the hard way when the wheel wasn’t using the force feedback and would not respond to any turn I made early on with Forza. So long as the order is correct, the wheel and pedals take just a few seconds to get into the ready position. The wheel itself will spin back and forth both ways to show that it’s ready for use.

While the wheel and pedals are more than enough to enjoy, I also received the Driving Force Shifter, and while it’s an extra of an extra, it’s a nice little add-on. Featuring a six-speed shift and the reverse being used by pressing down on the shifter, it has good feel to it, though I did feel like I could break it off if I shifted too hard if I was panicked on a turn and needed to quick shift. Using the G29 is going to be purely a personal choice because the wheel and pedals already have the wing shifters built into it.

The only true negative I have with the entire rig comes down to one thing: The locking mechanisms. The wheel and shifter both have clamps that are tightened and loosened by spinning the knobs on either side of them. These are the only pieces on both items that don’t feel durable. I was worried first taking the wheel out and feeling like I was going to break them before even getting to use the accessories. After a couple of minutes, I had them loosened and fit them onto my coffee table. I would highly suggest looking into some type of racing rig from a third party company to use because unless you have the perfect sized table, your back will feel the effects after about 30 minutes of gameplay. Logitech has some links on their website for the G920, and I would recommend checking out the options. Of course, these accessories are not going to be for everyone. The price point on the G920 is going to be released at $399.99, with the Driving Force shifter being another $59.99, so only the most dedicated racing fans are going to be looking to drop money on this. The bright side is that it isn’t limited to just the Xbox One, but is also for PC use, so Steam users can get just as much enjoyment as Xbox One users.

Отзывы об игровом руле Logitech G29 Driving Force

Достоинства: Покупал дя использования в автосимуляторах на PS4. Результат по сравнению с геймпадом превзошёл ожидания. Недостатки: У руля недостатков нет. Для того, чтобы играть перед большим экраном, очень желательна подставка для данного руля с педалями, кресло не обязательно. Комментарий: Получил что хотел, даже больше чем предполагал. Достоинства: Качество сборки Комментарий: Очень крутой! Играть одно удовольствие, обратная связь жара, особенно в проджект карс и рэйсрум экспириенс, чувствуешь как шины закусывать начинает и как потом снос оси идёт. Особенно педали порадовали! Это же полдела в гонках! Очень реалистично сделано, можно легко дозировать и газ и тормоз. Да дороговато, но брать что-то дешевле просто нет смысла, проходили уже Достоинства: все отлично, дизайн, цена, удобство, у руля обратная связь супер! ощущение что реально сидишь за рулем))))) Недостатки: кожа на руле немного криво сидит, но за такую цену грех жаловаться. отдам в ателье, перетянут руль хорошей кожей и будет огонь. Комментарий: в целом оч доволен! из всего что есть за свои деньги — 10 из 10! Достоинства: Рулём поворачивать в длинных поворотах удобнее чем клавиатурой Крепится к столу удобно, можно быстро снять и убрать Много кнопок Педали, подрулевые лепестки для переключения передач Недостатки: Маленькое рулевое колесо Оплётка руля не очень красиво сделана Коробки передач нет в комплекте Комментарий: Когда только установил его и запустил Dirt Rally, в голове была мысль: те кто придумал этот руль вообще ездили на машине на месте водителя? Потом поискал по интернету, настроил более менее, теперь стало больше похоже на поведение настоящего авто, но всё равно обратная связь не слишком адекватная, даже на небольшой скорости руль упирается как газель без гидроусилителя, можно конечно уменьшить отдачу, но тогда ведь и по прямой будет меньше ощущаться. Кароче нужно привыкнуть. А вот переключение передач лепестками просто шикарно сделано, прям как надо. 27 января 2018, Санкт-Петербург Недостатки: Мало поддерживаемых игр на ps4 Достоинства: — совместимость с ПК, PS4, PS3 — отдельные профили для игр на ПК, с возможностью установки угла поворота — широкая поддержка игр на ПК — избыточное кол-во кнопок управления — совместимость крепления с различными стойками и креслами Недостатки: — ценник для РФ явно завышенный, красная цена ему 16к, а за эти деньги можно взять европейский, который ни чем не отличается от РСТ. 4 июня 2017, Санкт-Петербург Достоинства: Это Логитек. Классная обратная связь. Все кнопки на руле. На ручке КПП кнопок нет. (Мне удобно). (Использую для игр Euro Track Simulator 2, Dirt 3, Grid 1). Недостатки: (1) Цена конечно.

Руль Logitech G920 Driving Force (941-000123)

(2) Странно, но не смог откалибровать на игре FlatOut 1. (3) Мне кнопок мало. Комментарий: Совместимость с ПК (он же PC) полная 100%. Я этот руль получил в качестве гарантийной замены руля G27 от самой компании Логитек. На выбор Гарантийный отдел Логитека предлагал оба варианта рулей и G29 и G920 и дополнительно рычаг КПП. Оба руля работают с PC. (На самом руле НАД валом находится маленький переключатель к какому устройству Вы хотите подключиться. Достоинства: Совместимость с PS4, в отличие от G27. Недостатки: Практически полная копия G27 с декоративными изменениями. Коробка переключения передач продаётся отдельно за 4к. Стоимость, конечно. Следствие состояния нашей экономики, но G27 полтора года назад обошёлся мне в 10к. Отдать 30 только за поддержку PS4 можно, но, для многих, крайне нерационально. Комментарий: Коллега по предыдущему отзыву, Logitech G29 изначально предназначен для PS3 и PS4. Для Windows и Xbox параллельно выпущена отдельная модель Logitech G920. Предположу, что для подобной градации существуют весомые причины. Как маркетинговые, так и технические. Судя по тому, что Logitech за два года так и не предложил своим пользователям вариант подключения G27 к PS4, а просто выпустил новую модель (G29), осмелюсь утверждать, что в связке "G29-Windows" возможны конфликты, которые никто решать не будет.
