Good / The Logitech G Driving Force Shifter is a cool extra add-on for a completely immersive racing simulation experience. It’s not too expensive, and the look and feel of the device as well as the functionality work well.
Bad / Resistance is not super powerful, and since the device is cheap, sometimes it can feel a bit like an “add-on”–and rightly so, since that’s what it is, not a luxury gear shifter like the $150+ TH8A.
Verdict / For a sub $50 price tag, the Logitech G Driving Force Shifter accomplishes the task of creating a useable and premium feeling shifter to make your racing experience more immersive and complete.
Intro to Logitech G Driving Force Shifter Review
If you want to complete your racing wheel experience, then you need to consider getting a gear shifter. The Logitech G Driving Force Shifter is one of the most affordable but well-designed shifters out there.
However, just because the device looks cool and is cheap, doesn’t mean that it has features and functionality worth your money. In this Logitech G Driving Force Shifter Review, I’ll take an honest look at what the gear shifter has to offer to diehard and casual racing fans alike.
The Logitech G Driving Force Shifter won’t break your wallet since it only costs $48. However, this is about the same price as a controller for Xbox One or PS4. The good news is that the Logitech G Driving Force Shifter is compatible with Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
The Logitech G Driving Force Shifter has a bunch of cool features and builds materials.
If you want an authentic feel, the G Driving Force shifter doesn’t disappoint. The Logitech G Driving Force Shifter is built with a durable solid steel gear, and the hand-stitched leather boot and knob cover make it feel like an authentic car shifter.
Reception towards the materials used are positive, citing that the leather and feel of the device is polished and immersive.
The shifter features six speeds, push down reverse, and an “H” pattern for fast and smooth shifting. In addition, you can also mount the shifter to a table or racing rig platform.
One of the bad things about the G Driving Force Shifter is that it’s only compatible with the G29 and G920 devices. However, this means that it works well with these devices and should be easy to set up.
The device doesn’t feature anything like motorized feedback or much resistance when shifting, but for the price, this is to be expected. If you want more resistance in your shifter, you might have to spring for the TH8A shifter, but this shifter is compatible with completely different and more expensive Thrustmaster wheels.
The general reception of the device is that it feels a bit cheap regarding how the parts work together, but nothing breaks or wears down, and the device is completely functional.
Logitech G Driving Force Shifter Review Conclusion
With a premium look and feel as well as functionality coupled with a low price point, it’s almost a no-brainer to add the Logitech G Driving Force Shifter with your G29 or G920, as an extra element of immersion to your racing simulation experience.
