    I have a Logitech G27 and love it. It's not the fanciest piece out there, I mean you can go nuts and spend thousands if you really want. But it is well built and compatible with pretty much every game so it works.

    G27. I like it, good feed back and leather wheel. I'm about to build a PVC simulator seat. Should be fun.

    PVC is sturdy enough? I thought about PVC but then I envisioned my fat butt landing on the floor............ and I kinda figured it would be more fun to play with the welder

    I have a few more pieces to collect for a metal rig complete with sliding seat.

    PVC should be fine as long as you use Schedule 40 pipe. Don't use 200 psi pipe - it's thin walled.

    Been using Logitech Momo stuff for years. First a "Red Momo", then a G27. Best bang for the buck.

    Some people enjoy more realistic shifters, pedal assemblies and cockpits for a lot of money, but I don't think they make you any quicker - they just make the experience more enjoyable and realistic feeling.

    BTW, some of the top sim players aren't even using force feedback wheels.

    Thread is a couple months old but I would go with Fanatec wheel and pedals. They feel less toyish than the logitech stuff. The Porsche branded wheels are about the same quality as the G27 and the Clubsport pedals are awesome. The brake on the clubsport pedals is pressure sensitive and is much more like a real brake. going to try to post my set up...

    I use the TSW (Thomas Superwheel) with a load cell brake pedal. No force feedback, but built like a FREAKIN TANK!

    If you are just getting started the G27 is the best bang for the buck. It is a nice balance of quality and price. The G27 list price is $299 and I just purchaed one off Amazon for $199. Once you have some experience you can upgrade to the more high end controls if you choose.

    I had a G27 for a little while; I would describe it as “OK.” It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. The feedback on the steering wheel was decent with just a little dead zone in the center, and the stiffness on the pedals was okay as well. The only thing I didn’t like was the feel of the shifter. It had absolutely no feel at all. No resistance or anything when shifting - a very dead feeling. While this may be trivial to some (after all, it did still work), it wasn’t trivial for me. As soon as I went to shift, whatever immersion or focus I had on the game/sim was gone. The shifter felt nothing like the real thing, and that really threw me off, personally.
    If you are using the setup (wheel, pedals, shifter) for “fun” - casual gaming and the like, then it will most likely be good, and is decent quality for the money. If you are looking for better immersion, plan to spend more money on better equipment.
    As to the quality of the items themselves, they were good. Didn’t feel flimsy, brittle or anything like that - other than that dead feeling from the shifter.
