T150 is just a toy to start, of course is cheaperFor me an Thrustmaster T150Pro is the best entry level wheel and a bit cheaper as the G29.
And optional Shifter TH8A is lot better than the G29 Shifter.
Now you have also the optional Thrustmaster T-LCM pedals with magnetic sensors and load cell brake..

The external body is the same of G29, it would not be a good idea to modify the body, the wheel need to be good and nice inside.
I didn't test yet, but reading reviews should have a great FBB, much better than G29. Of course the price is a little bit high, but I am sure that in 2-3 months ( black friday ) price will go down. Just to make an example, you can find T300RS GT edition between 370-390 Euros, they are both medium level and cost the same. I have a T300RS with T3PA since 2014, during 6 years I had to replace only the pedals one time, the wheel is still working fine, but at the time of PS3 I had for many years G27 Logitech, both are very good steering wheel. Im am sure Logitech will sell a lot of G923.
As I mention in the clip, I've only not got a G25 any more because someone in the (extended) family bought it off me to play Truck Driver - and that thing survived the GT5 Red Bull X Challenge. The G29 has had its foibles - the downshift paddle particularly goes through spells of not wanting to change down, or to change down twice, but then it goes for months of being fine - but again, that's only on the shelf now after... however long because G923. I only took the pedals apart once to get the awful foam block out."Should last just as long as all its predecessors"
That's a damning indictment of the new one for sure. At least for me it is.
Between three of us I think we tallied up 7 within the two year warranty period. A combination of throttle potentiometers and the button controls bugging out means that one of us switched on the replacement to Thrustmaster and the two remaining (me being one) won't replace with another Logitech device.
Overall, a great starter wheel that's mass-produced and designed to last the warranty period.
I should also point out that all of us are casual 2-3 times a week evening players, nothing strenuous.

As I mentioned in the video, the blue bit of my G29 flaked off pretty early in the wheel's life - to the point where I almost thought it was one of those blue dust cover things you find on new electronic items that you're supposed to peel off and I just hadn't peeled it off.I wonder why my g29 have the same blue metal on the center of the wheel and my throttle pedal have the same shape/design has this new G923.
I compared mine with other G29 and its diferent in that those 2 aspetcs

Yeah the T80 is a bungee cord wheel that pretty much any belt, gear or combination of both wheels would crap on in terms of feel. The G series wheels have always been pretty reasonable for a lower end starter wheel, whereas the Fanatec wheel is imo a step up from the G923 (I think it's about 2nm compared to about 6nm of torque for the CSL Elite) but it's also a step up in price, especially if you want three pedals. The other bonus with the Fanatec is that it's part of an ecosystem that has many possible choices of wheels and pedal sets, something that's not possible with Logitech systems.As a newb to racing sims - I have used a Thrustmaster T80 in the past and it was/is awful to steer, brake, and accelerate with, haha - how does this G923 compare to a Fanatec CSL Elite? I think my wife will *finally* let me part with some cash to get a wheel and stand, and wonder which of these (the Fanatec vs the G923) represents the better value for a new player/buyer.
