Conclusion

Please decide your budget first. Next, imagine the purpose and the game you will play in the future. Logitech Shifter is cheap and easy to use. Thrustmaster TH8A is high quality and realistic.

In my opinon, PC users prefer the Thrustmaster TH8A. Because it has a lot of compatibility, and trucks, heavy equipment, and tractors have a lot of gear. Other than that, I think you can choose either one within the budget. I’ve been using the Logitech shifter for over two years. It has done a good job without breaking down. I am very happy. I will play Farming Simulator and Truck Simulator in the future. So I bought TH8A this time.

That’s all for this article.
