I'm thinking about taking the next step and buy a wheel. I've been holding back long enough
I'm kinda lost though. I'm hoping I can get some help to decide. As fars as I know, both the DFGT and the G25 are great wheels but I don't know which to get. I'm aware that the G25 has better pedals and a clutch and although these are nice things I don't know if it's worth the extra money. I'm more worried with the force feedback. Is there a significant difference between the DFGT and the G25 FFB? Is it worth the double cost? Are the DFGT pedals too simple/toyish? Can I use a DFGT in a PC? Anything else I should know? Bottom line I need help to find out which is best for me.
I would like to point out that the extra cost is a bigger problem around here. I'll be paying the equivalent of 2 PS3s in a DFGT and the equivalent of 4 PS3s in a G25, so keep that in mind.
Thanks for the help in advance.
Only thing i can say is if you looking for that authentic feel in the wheel the DFGT has made quite alot of people happy,
If you looking for that one step further the quality of the g25 is the appropriate action
Personally speaking as a G25 user i can fathom anything less, this wheel makes the game a completely different game from the controller users.
i know i can never play a Racing Sim with out a g25 caliber wheel.

The build quality between the two pedal sets is night and day.
For one thing, the G25 pedals are metal and not plastic.
I point this out because I have broken plastic pedals without being even rough with them.
The build quality may have other advantages for you, too.
Force feedback should feel very good with both wheels. I have used a Pro, not the DF:GT yet, and there should be a big difference with the older, original FFb of the Pro. The G25's FFb should be close, but Logitech is supposed to have improved the feel of it with the newer DF:GT.
The cost seems grievous enough to take your time and plan a wheel purchase carefully.
I have both a G25 and a DFGT.
I got the DFGT first, and I really liked the wheel and had no plans of purchasing a G25. But one day I ran across a deal to good to pass up so I bought a G25 to see what it was all about.
After having used them both, I lean towards the G25, the biggest plus is the padal shifters on it where the DFGT has a little button type thing behind the wheel. The G25 as a whole seems a lot smoother and more precise.
Dont get me wrong the DFGT is a great wheel, plus it has a PS button so no need to have a controller near you to switch from game to XMB for messages or chat.
I personally dont think you would be going wrong going either way, but if you got the extra cash, I would go with the G25.
Thanks for all the info. I'm leaning towards the DF:GT simply because it looks good enough already. The G25, while better, also seems to be more than I need. A pricey overkill basically.
I still have doubts with the force feedback though. I've read a lot of reviews but I never had the luck to find a review comparing the two. I'm still don't know if there's a sizable difference in that aspect and if so, I believe I'll get a G25. Further force feedback info/comparison is deeply appreciated.
I agree with what Swerv_Griffin said above.
The FF on my G25 is stronger, maybe a little more precise than the DFGT. One thing I do like, my G25 doesnt make nearly as much noise as my DFGT does. The DFGT is no slouch in the FF department at all, and I wouldnt hesitate to buy another one, but if I had the option of a DFGT or a G25, I would take the G25.
