    There are two approaches I know of:
    1. (Semi-)Commercial product: JL-G25
    2. DIY: SRS-G25/27

    I've looked a bit that JLG25, is the belt drive worth that money, 800-1000 Euro? Is the difference really that big?

    They are almost the same wheel. Most known belt drives are developed for high-speed application with low loads and a smoother feeling. For me, G27 is worth its usage with its specifications. Although, it really depends which of the two you are more comfortable using.
