Damn, can't watch it, it keeps buffering every couple seconds.
When I try to set lower quality it jumps back to HD.  :grr:

Didn't she say '...predecessor to the G25'?  Tsk tsk.  Since she was clearly hired for her astute journalistic abilities, this is disgraceful!

I thought the camera made her "look" somewhat big...now you are telling me she has no sence of journalism?


Have you seen the outtakes yet lord B, that should change your mind..  She just has a problem with remembering the trivia, that's all.  8-O

@Cas:  Just click pauze, open a new page in your browser and come back to it a bit later... it should be loaded at full quality by then.

Watch it at YouTube, I had the same problem as you Cas when I watched it embedded.

The G27 is an evolution, no revolution. I don't really agree on durability of the G25: I broke the wheel and Rik broke the shifter. It seems like they improved both areas and so I probably get one when they become available over here.

You guys shouldn't play together, you play too rough.... and the 25 was bearing the brunt of the assault, poor 25!

Haha, we don't play together but in fact I got a small issue on my shifter too.

The only thing I wish they had improved were the pedals. For me the trottle has too little resistance.

Just wondering is G27 the wheel or a measurement..

I'm afraid for Logitech that the only people who will be buying this are those with a broken G25 or those who can't be bothered to wait months for their GT3 RS to ship.

Thanks, works fine now.
Not surprised to see you'll buy one, hehe.  lol
I wish for a better shifter too.....still have to open up this one to see if I can find what causes the bleeding jumps out of gear.

@ 8:20

"The wheels are usually down there under our feet"  Man it's like they don't even think about what they are saying anymore.  It's just 'sponsor this' and sponsor that.

Comparing the durability of the G25 seems silly for me.  I think we are all confident these guys don't race with the G25.

doesn't look to be that much better to me

a few extra buttons on the wheel . a plus maybe
gear shifter looks worse to me it only has h pattern no sequential .I use both on mine
pedals slight changes are they worth the price?

and the so called "quieter" calibration  :hmm: I assume they had the mic right inside the casing because that sounded noisier than my G25 does .plus then went on about "weird " noises at certain times

ya would think with all the comments on the net Logitec would have read a few and taken notes to come up with something much better

 I do like the look of the pedals for this {not sure about the wheel}...........fully adjustable + ffb vibration in the brake pedal so you feel lock-ups of the wheels .....interesting

 I have never agreed with change just for the sake of change so an evolution is fine but the lack of sequential seems a de-volution! Not that I use it as I think cars with auto trannys...well..um.....anyways....

 But seriously. I wonder if the change of that might help with the "no-reverse problem" as mine lost reverse in like 4 days.

 I'd have no use for the shift lights, seems kinda' gimmicky but all in all, an update is acceptable. maybe a complete revamp would put the G-25/7 in to high a price bracket and with the fanatec, they now have competition. or will once the Fanatec (possibly) gets accepted beyond the video gamers.

 I do wonder though if Logitech has shot themselves in the foot by merely updating as before the G-25 was a MASSIVE step up from the DFP, as I myself discovered, but I wonder now if when someone asks advice on a forum id the "oldtimers/experienced" will just say "Buy a leftover/used G-25 as it's essentially the same wheel".
 
I dunno, I guess eventually there will be fewer and fewer working G-25s due to attrition but...........

 I think too this depends on how they price it.

 Hopefully, if my wheel ever dies, it will be a long time from now and I'll already have CST pedals and so won't be buying a G-25/G27 wheel just for the "wheel" part. Also since I have the SST shifter and actually use the sequential feature as a handbrake.  So whether I'M interested or not is irelevent so my thinking is towards someone coming in.

 And agreed with Giz about the ffb in the brake pedals of the fanatec but I seem to recall no games actualy support it yet? I'd have been happy with it merely being part of the ffb itself. lol  Don't like the pedals on the Fanatec as they look like fly swatters to me and the wheel itself, well, not an "airbag wheel" fan. I wonder how hard it would be to replace it?

 Has anyone started mdding the Fanatec yet? I think the key to the G-25's success in the sim community is the ease of modding it.

I just realized they did a great job of not reviewing Race On.  We all know it's not a ground breaking release.  It still deserves a proper review though.  Not everyone has the Race07 series.

oh Hell, I forgot to watch the clip!! haha.

 Oh geez. Love his clown shoes. *snort*

 The chick can't drive period, left foot brakes. then again so does the guy, hope not to see THEM on the real roads. lol She reminds me of, there's this "car TV" thing on Saturday's here on Channel 32, don't recall the channel's name or the thing they call this time frame, just they have cheesy "car" shows, (One's called Extreme 4x4 as it was on this week and I don't remember any of the other shows, mostly forgettable stuff) all strung together by little bits of narration by some braindead blonde who wouldn't know a wrench from a rowboat. lol Anyways, this chick reminds me of that.

 Good laugh though. Though yes, a review of Race On would be nice. I fell asleep whilst Miss Saggy Boobs read off her cue card. what'd she say again? lol

 Anyways, lot's of fluff, SOME info, and I do find it hard to take serious someone telling me how "realistic" it is to drive when he left foot brakes and never uses the clutch when shifting, may as well use the flappy paddles. Entertatining but I kept nodding off. Reminds me of most television actually.

 Can't wait for a REAL review, IE: someone here.

I guess more guys are into boobs than facts.  I want my car repaired by a mechanic, not a playboy model.  I want my sim reviews from sim racers, not from a cue card reading tart.

Boy you lads are grumpy today :)
We don't have that many Sim Racing shows to watch, I'm glad to have SRT including all it's little idiosyncrasies.
I do agree that the advertising malarky is becoming unbalanced... I know they have to survive, but it does seem a little 'sponsor plug over content' at the moment.
I disagree that left foot braking isn't a valid sim racing technique.

Ever heard of a straight cut gearbox Den  :?:

I use left foot braking in sims all the time btw (and H shifter too)

Also I don't agree with some of you about the loss of the sequential gears. I never used those and it makes the design easier so the H shifter will probably work and feel better thanks to the loss of that seq. gears. So no disappointed for me there.

I just wish they had improved the pedals more. Adjustable resistance would be nice for instance.

Oh good we are free to bag this show - that was a complete waste of 20mins.
I could go on and on but basically i'll keep it simple (mostly cause i'm actively trying to purge that footage from my mind) - they had less than a 2min intro and THAT was the best take.  What were the other attempts - did she fall off the chair the other 30 times.  Ahh that mental image has fixed my frustration.   lol

C'mon Pete and Lord B - get yourselves a girl and give us a real simjunkies.tv show.
