Logitech G920 Shifter Review

Get the one of the best manual transmission Logitech G920 Shifter and start enjoying the real car driving experience.

There’s many shifters in the market but none of them can match Logitech G920 shifter. Logitech G920 Shifter is best for the games where you need severe instant steering controls like the games Dirt Rally, EuroTruck Simulator, WRC 18 and etc. You will see that you need to change the gears more often. Your fingers can find out the closet gear lever for shifting the gears up and down. This is a really easy way to shift the gears instead of using the other manual gear lever.

Quality of the shifter seems to be really fine and nice in look. Logitech G920 shifter stick build with high quality stainless steel covered with premium leather that gives an ultimate elegant look. There’s one expect I have seen that this shifter doesn’t have D-pad or buttons on it.

Who Should Buy The Logitech Shifter

If you’re using the Logitech G920 or Logitech G29 steering wheels, then it can be a best fit for you, as this shifter is only compatible with these two steering wheels. It’s a best shifter for manual gear transmission and I prefer this over the other paddle shifter.

Conclusion

Logitech G920 Shifter is one of the best performing and affordable shifter for a more smoother and pleasurable driving experience. But it’s only compatible with Logitech G920 and G29 driving wheels. So, if you wanted to use this shifter you need to buy the Logitech G920 Driving Force too. You can easily buy one from Amazon retailers at a discounted price.

If you’re moving from Logitech G27 steering wheel, you don’t need to buy this shifter as G27 shifter works with G920.

Amazon has over 100 of gamer reviews about this awesome G920 shifter and I am totally surprised to see the rating over 4.5. I think it’s price gives the advantage over the other shifters in the market.
