Not Compatible with much... You do not want to waste money on this if you are not a pro...

I Hope Logitech views this listing...
I will start by saying that this product's construction is excellent and mostly very sturdy. It even has leather around the steering wheel. But read on...
I have spent HOURS (even days) trying to find games that will work with this device. There are very few because instead of making this controller widely compatible with game controllers, they decided to do everything proprietary. I had to search the web for programs written by other frustrated people to get this device to emulate an XBox360 controller so that it will work with their Windows 10 games. All this did was create more frustration because it messed around with game controller order designations. Designations that Microsoft has decided to hide from view and hide any possible way to change the controller order. Now my other controller will no longer take the first device order, and will no longer work with my games (meaning that I will have to forcibly remove all the drivers and re-install them).
I'm angry, because this is a simple thing that could have been easily done in Logitech's overly complicated software called G-Hub. Or in Microsoft's game controller settings (people have been complaining about the controller order issue since Windows 7).
Logitech's G-Hub software also failed to recognize the device when I first plugged it in (I have other Logitech devices that use G-Hub). Nothing I did would get it to be recognized. I had to uninstall G-Hub and re-install it.
Good luck finding a Game to use with the G923 that won't cost you hundreds of dollars after already paying over $400.00 for this device.
Logitech, why on earth would you spend so much time and money designing something that will be so poorly compatible? Larger reach means more sales - doesn't that make sense? This would be easily fixable in your software - add a controller emulation toggle and a device order selector.
Most of it feels like a very premium device, but if it isn't compatible, who is going to buy it???
Sturdiness of the desk mount is questionable as the clamp that holds it to the table is plastic with no silicon grips, and the spring action of the wheel is so tight that turning the wheel pulls the whole thing loose from the table and comes crashing down into your lap (or keyboard tray as it did to mine and hit the sleep button on the way). The plastic clamps are going to break - unless you use the bolt holes in the bottom of it to screw it down. Fortunately I figured out how to change the spring tension settings to try and keep that from happening again.
It is a mostly sturdy product, but unless you are a professional race gamer, that can afford the premium games and the mounting frame or race chair, this is probably just not for you.
Compatibility has a huge impact on value for money.
Update: I found the Forsa Horizon 4 demo which does recognize the device. The wheel certainly improves the game experience. I would raise half a star for this if it were possible so 3.5 stars out of 5 because Logitech could, with software, make this device more widely compatible.
