I bought THIS and love it. It says unavailable now, so I'm not sure if it's available elsewhere. I bought it as a temporary solution until I could build something. But after receiving it and using it for a couple months, I have no urge to use anything else. It's awesome.
Is the G27 really that popular? $200 is so much... Is there something wrong with the cheaper options?
The Wheel Stand Pro seemed kinda expensive for me. I managed to get This stand a while back for like 80 bucks. It looks like it might not be available in the US at the moment though. I bolted my hotas to a board and velcro'd the board to the top of that stand (just so I could use the stand later if I wanted). Added metal bars to the sides for structural support.
This is the wheel stand I bought.
Not too fancy and not too expensive, gets the job done for sure.
I'm building my new aluminum profile rig now and if you are in US and are interested PM me and I can sell you my previous stand at a reasonable price. I bought it in late 2014 on Amazon and I've been using it all the time with my G27. It is this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0084EG3ZA
I have the Thrustmaster 458 wheel and love it. I basically bought the XB1 and wheel just for Forza.
I have the steering on sim and bought this $90 wheel stand off Amazon. It's not amazing, but is pretty good value and meets my needs.
The first one looks pretty old, like in the earlier days of playseat stands, while it is cheap, is probably not worth it, you'll end up regretting it. It has a flawed design as pointed out by others where the bar connecting the wheel to the stand will only get in the way. Reviews also say that the stand is too light and moves with pedals are pressed and that g27s keep falling off the stand.
The wheel stand pro v2 is, IMO, the better of the two and worth the extra money. I have owned one for nearly a year, still the best purchase I ever made, besides the g27 itself. This model is pre-drilled for a g27 meaning you can bolt it to the stand and it is completely solid. The only thing going anywhere is me going backwards in my office chair (Need to take the wheels off my chair...).
Cable management can be a hassle. I got a USB extension and then a USB hub, so there's only one cable going out of the computer and the rat's nest is localized to where the action is.
Here's what a racing stand looks like.
Maybe you can put it perpendicular to the desk so you can still reach out and grab the mouse with your right hand to get things going.
Just went back to my Amazon purchase history and I'm kind of surprised I paid so much for the Wheel Stand Pro. It is VERY nice, however and included all tools and hardware. The base combined with the pedals is hefty enough that it stays in place in nearly every situation and the center pole really doesn't get in my way at all, even when using left-foot braking. With everything attached to it you can fold it up into a not too compact package that's at least small enough to throw in a closet. What I find nice is that it consolidates three pain-in-the-ass-to-setup pieces of hardware into something I never have to disassemble when I'm done playing.
I also considered this which seems like a nice compromise at half the price. I went with the more expensive one because I wanted something that I could fold up and move around a lot without worrying about breaking the adjustment hardware. I also like the separate shifter plate on the Wheel Stand Pro because I found it annoying having it on the same plane the wheel is clamped to.
If you're the crafty type you could easily build a bulkier and less elegant stand in an afternoon out of $30 worth of lumber. Google "diy wheel stand" for ideas.

Really that much of a difference?
