Talking from a gamers point of view, I can categorically say that the G920 is impressive, but there is always a common question from anyone new to racing wheels, and that is;

What is the best gaming racing wheels that are compatible with PlayStation and Xbox?

Finding the best video gaming racing wheels that are compatible and works great with PlayStation and Xbox can be sometimes tricky due to many factors (especially brand compatibility). Many of the new gaming racing wheels models lack the quality and value you want from a product like this.

In this Logitech G920 steering wheel review, I will be discussing all you need to know about the G920 game racing wheel.

Logitech G920 driving force racing wheel - Logitech G920 review

What is the Logitech G920 Driving Force Gaming Steering Wheel?

The Logitech G920 driving force steering wheel is a racing wheel simulator mainly designed for Xbox One video game console, PC and macOS. 

The G920 steering wheel does feature accurate dual-engine input and helical steering for quiet, smooth steering. The racing wheel on 

-wheel controls and paddle shifters are relatively easy to use, that you can make accurate gear changes just as if you are driving a real car. The Logitech G920 has a separate pedal unit that makes you feel the natural, sensitive power, and with a brake pedal that imitates the feel of high-performance vehicles, the experience is fantastic. 

The Logitech G920 driving force racing wheel is designed for comfort and durability with hand-stitched leather and stainless steel parts. 

Is Logitech G920 worth it?

The Logitech G920 steering wheel is a great game racing wheel, and I still think it is worth buying for any gamers that want to experience the real feeling of car racing simulation. The experience is just exceptional.

Having said that, It depends on a few factors, such as your budget and the compactibility with the game console you already have. Unfortunately, the G920 is not compatible with Playstation (that is a big sorry to PS3, PS4 and PS5 gamers).

The G920 is only compatible with the Xbox One, PC and macOS. If you need a Logitech driving wheel that is compatible with Playstation, I will suggest you buy the Logitech G923 or the G29.

What is included in the Logitech G920 package?

Right off the bat, you will notice that the Logitech G920 unit is visually impressive just by seeing the package.

The package includes:

  • Logitech G920 steering wheel, 
  • Pedals, 
  • Power adapter and,
  • User documentation (adding the shifter is optional).

As for the unit itself, it has around 10 inches in height, width and depth. Not only that, but the pedals are large enough, yet not super large either, and that is always a plus.

The wheel has an overheat safeguard; it also has dual-motor force feedback and hall-effect steering sensor and 900 degrees lock to lock rotation, which is always nice to have.

These are self-calibrating for the pedals, and they also bring in a nonlinear brake pedal system. 

The textured heel grip helps you ensure that you have a pretty powerful grip each time you use the unit.

The fact that they used anodized aluminium for the wheel spokes is a very good thing. And they also brought in some hand-stitched leather, which is super comfortable. Aside from that, most of the unit is made out of steel, which is super impressive in that regard.

That being said; the mounting clamps are from glass-filled nylon, and that is more than ok in that perspective. Also, the way they added the buttons is very intuitive. While playing The Forza Horizon 3 on PC, and Project Cars 2 on Xbox One and PC, I was very impressed with how easy to press and the buttons’ responsiveness.

Also, this steering wheel’s physical construction makes for a very inquisitive, unique driving experience that you will like quite a lot.

What you miss here are the shift lights that were a standard on the older models. But in all honesty, that does not matter that much, to begin with. The performance was outstanding, and one of the nicest things about the Logitech G920 is its software. It is super easy to adjust and modify stuff in it is a pleasure, which you rarely get to encounter in most situations.

There is no denying that the Logitech G920 is not cheap and might be an expensive unit for some gamers. But if you want to use some of the best racing wheels out there in the market; then you would have to put the quality first and consider buying Logitech G920 over others. It surely does bring in front of you some super lovely results.
