The Logitech G27 is an electronic steering wheel designed for Sim racing video games on the PC, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. It uses a USB interface, and is based upon the previous G25, with some new features including the use of helical gearing instead of the previous straight gears used on the G25.[1] As of December 2015, the Logitech G27 is no longer sold by Logitech, in favor of the newer G29 and G920 steering wheels now offered by Logitech.

Specifications[edit]

It features:

  • A wheel:
    • 270 mm, leather-wrapped steering wheel.
    • Range of rotation adjustable up to 900 degrees.
    • 2 force feedback motors.
    • One set of gears between motors and wheel, including an anti-backlash design.
    • 2 paddleshifters.
    • 6 buttons.
    • Dual-motor force feedback with helical gears that produces less noise than the G25, and provides better steering response.[1]
  • A set of stainless steel pedals, including:
  • A shifter unit:
    • 8 buttons.
    • 1 D-pad.
    • A gear stick with a six-speed 'H' pattern gearbox. Reverse is selected by pressing down and changing to sixth.
    • Unlike the superseded Logitech G25, the shifter unit does not include a selector to switch to sequential up-down mode, only allowing six-speed mode to be used. The shift click has improved though and gives less noise.

Compatibility[edit]

  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation 2
  • PC
