The CSW v2 definitely is. From a modularity standpoint, the Fanatec Clubsport system is very versatile. You can add shift light displays, static shifter paddles, mobile phone holders (DIY for now). The ability to quickly swap wheels in between races / on-the-fly is unmatched for the price. Proper rim sizing, too -can't beat driving a formula car with a fast, small-diameter wheel, and a GT-car with a large-diameter one. With that said, the steering wheel rims feel well-made, especially the Porsche 918 rim (the real leather smells good). If their selection doesn't suit your tastes, you can just get the Universal Hub and use an aftermarket steering wheel). The amount of torque available should be enough for most users. And the ability to hook everything up to the wheel base (shifters, handbrake, pedals) makes it even better -frees up USB ports). No PlayStation-specific buttons, though. Quite a bit pricier than the Thrustmaster gear, though. And you can only buy from Fanatec directly (which forces you to pay shipping).
The Thrustmaster initially feels more like a toy, but that wheel feels quite smooth. Didn't get too much time with the wheel (only tried it at the GT Academy event) I wasn't too impressed with anything other than the smoothness, but, then again, it might be the lack of force feedback/physics coming from Gran Turismo itself that made the wheel quite a bit limp. *shrug*
Anyway, either wheel is miles better than Logitech peripherals.
