Logitech G29 Racing Wheel Review
As you can see there are plenty of buttons on the front of the G29. The G25 had two, the G27 had six, the G29 has a D-Pad, 14 buttons and a dial as well as the shifter paddles. You could happily run a car with DRS, KERS, brake balance adjustment, pit in, wipers, headlights and still have plenty of buttons left over.
The bottom of the wheel is slightly flattened, useful if you've got a low desk or large thighs, whilst the subtle blue ring at the top helps your peripheral vision keep the car pointing straight if you're in the middle of an arm-twirling spin.
Although the front of the wheel is the least important part, the front of the G29 is designed like a muscle car. Perhaps a Camaro or a Mustang.
You might not be able to adjust the angle of the wheel, it's placed in a nice way that suits everything from single seaters to tin tops. You can also see the top of the bolt which clamps the wheel to the desk.
Speaking of which, the G29 has enough room to be mounted to all but the thickest oak table. Just over an inch of space should enable you to fit it anywhere you wish. If your table is particularly shiny, or if you are one of those people who needlessly bullies your hardware, then it's just about possible to move the G29 even when the clamps are as tight as humanely possible. This can quickly be solved by attaching a tiny pad to the "feet" so that it grips the table properly, but in 99% of cases this wont be an issue.
On the underside we have the power and pedal inputs, as well as a spare input for the optional shifter. The cables need to be routed through a small gap at the front to enable the wheel to be flush to the surface. There are also threads for mounting to a dedicated racing setup should you have one.
Lastly above the paddles is the switch to move between PS3 mode and PS4/PC mode.
Hidden above the wheel boss is a shift light system which, as you can see here, works excellently. When you're hitting the redline, in Project Cars at least, it flashes red at you. We think this is enough of a reason to stick with the G29 over the G920. It also shows the accuracy of the throttle pedal, that we can hold it long enough to take a photograph without it bouncing up and down.
