Recently, we had the opportunity to use the Box One Racing GT-T2 Sim Racing Button Box to Test. This compact button box is among one of the most popular choices in its category, and it's easy to see why. With excellent value for money and impressive features, this button box certainly meets the expectations of serious sim racers. In this article, we explain why the Box One Racing GT-T2 Button Box is a very good addition to your sim racing setup!
What's In The Box
Upon delivery of the GT-T2 Sim Racing Button Box you can expect the following: of course, the GT Masters M2 Button Box which is well and securely packaged. There are also a number of optional additions, such as a table clamp with 2x M4x10 screws or the 40×40 aluminum profile bracket. For these optional mounting options, of course, you will pay an additional cost of a few euros.
Price of the GT-T2 Button Box
The GT-T2 is available from ?109.99 for the version without LED lighting. Currently there is a special offer in which the price has been temporarily reduced to only ?83.99. For the variant with LED lighting, the price is currently ?94.99. Please note that these prices do not include any optional accessories. Box One Racing hereby positions itself in a very interesting low-budget market position which is hugely interesting for many novice sim racers.
12 Programmable Buttons and Switches
The Box One Racing GT-T2 Sim Racing Button Box is an indispensable accessory for avid sim racers. With its 12 programmable buttons and switches, including an illuminated start button and convenient buttons with various functions, this button box offers an intuitive and customizable control experience. You can choose between buttons with LED lighting and buttons without lighting. We received the variant with LED illumination for this review and - fair is fair - this is quite a cool addition to my sim rig!
Although the buttons are a bit on the smaller side, this is not a hindrance at all given the size of the button box. The 4 beautifully lit buttons and engine start button in particular stand out for their attractive appearance and the satisfying clicking sound they produce. The sound of the ignition switch with safety cover is also very pleasant and adds extra pleasure of use.
Easy Installation and Flexible Mounting Options
Because installation is plug-and-play, you can get up and running quickly. The included 1.8-meter-long USB cable with strain relief ensures a reliable connection. In addition, the button box is easy to attach to a table or aluminum profiles thanks to the M4 screw thread and optional montage options.
Stylish Design and Practical Benefits
The GT-T2 Sim Racing Button Box has a robust carbon look achieved through a carbon wrap film. This finish creates a very stylish look, but unfortunately it comes with a certain drawback. If you inadvertently apply pressure to the corners of the button box, the wrap film may dent. It is therefore important to handle this with care, as the dented foil unfortunately detracts from the attractive look.
The button box is PC compatible only and requires no additional software. With its attractive price and user-friendly mounting options, it is a practical and effective addition to any sim racing setup. Please note that the DFM printing process may possibly cause small bumps on the sides, but this does not affect the performance of the button box.
Advantages GT-T2 Button Box
The advantages of the Box One Racing GT-T2 are clear: a very attractive price, a tough carbon look and a plug-and-play box. The easy mounting with threaded inserts and table clamp makes it a practical choice. Keep in mind that this product may have small bumps on the sides due to the DFM printing process, but this does not affect performance.
Disadvantages GT-T2 Button Box
Frankly, it was hard to find any drawbacks, but there are some points to consider. First, the position of the USB cable is on the right side. I personally find this an awkward location. My personal preference is to place it on the left side or on the bottom. This has to do - logically - with the location of montage.
In addition, as mentioned earlier, there is the pressure sensitivity of the carbon wrap film. Unfortunately, in my case this foil is dented which detracts from the aesthetic aspect. A possible solution to this could be placing plastic caps on the four screws in the corners, so that the film surface is more even during the application of the carbon wrap film.
If you are looking for a sim racing button box that is easy to install and offers many features, the Box One Racing GT-T2 is an excellent choice. With features such as an illuminated engine start button, a spring-loaded switch with safety cover and several buttons, this button box is great for a variety of simulation games.
