What does the Obutto R3Volution Base Cockpit come with?
Below are the available bulk discount rates for each individual item when you purchase a certain amount
RAID 0 (Striping) takes two drives of the same size and creates a bridge between them to make them act as one large drive. For example two 250GB drives would show up on the system as one large 500GB drive. This increases the speed of data being processed as it writes and reads across both drives. The downside is there is no data security. If one drive goes down in the RAID 0 configuration all data is lost as half is stored on one drive and the other half on the other. This is best used for situations where the data is not critical, but a speed performance increase may be desirable such as when using the machine for gaming.
RAID 1 (Mirroring) takes both drives and uses one to create a real time backup to the second. In this case two 250GB drives will show up as one 250GB drive. This is a good setup for those looking for data security as information put on the main drive of the RAID will immediately be copied over to the other drive as an exact match. You do lose some speed due to the extra processing, but allows for the data to be saved if one of the drives in the RAID go down. Simply replacing the defective drive will automatically rebuild the array over a short time.×

Since this is the first substantial gaming cockpit I have purchased, I can't compare it to other comparably priced items. The previous setup was cobbled together and was less than ideal. This product is outstanding in its stability. Nothing moves when at the wheel, and the seat is extremely comfortable even after a couple of hours of intense racing. The only disadvantage that I have noticed is the inability to adjust the angle of the wheel when raising or lowering. I like the steering wheel low and parallel to my body when I drive, just as I do when driving my real Corvette. However, this I consider to be only a minor irritation. Other than that, I consider this to be an outstanding product, and a rock solid investment that will last a long time. Although it took 4 hours to assemble, it was worth the effort in the long run.

This is built like a tank it will last forever nothing moves or wobbles while you drive like a maniac. Assembly takes some time to get everything square and perfectly straight but once your done its worth it. The seat is comfortable for a few hours but I noticed the material will wrinkle on the bottom cushion I wish it was all leather. The key board tray is ok but I wish it had a small solid mounted tray on the right side of it for my phone, remotes, etc and a small hook to hang my headset. Other than those small things I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their game and be comfortable for the first time while you race or play your favorite shooters. I also purchased the triple monitor stand and assembled it looks cool but it feels like it could fall forward with heavy monitors it needs a better stance to take away that wobble and un easy feeling what if I bumped into. Other wise plenty of adjustability and it will last forever solid steel tubing.

While the cockpit itself is fantastic, the triple monitor setup stands out as a complete afterthought. While it holds the monitors, the rig does not give me confidence that it will keep from falling over if I were to even slightly bump it. There should be L-brackets added to the outside of the Obutto cockpit to ensure the monitor stand remains firmly "grounded."
Also, what's the deal with selling the Buttkicker as an "add-on" option when, in fact, there are ZERO mounting provisions for it. Add the proper holes in the cockpit and mounting hardware for the Buttkicker BEFORE you go calling it an "accessory."

Tons of reviews listed here as well as lots of great video reviews online. What else can be said this thing is damn near perfect and anything that I can manage to find wrong are really just nit picking. I haven't been this happy with any purchase I've ever made. This thing will last me for decades.

Let me start my review with this...the cockpit is great for racing. If that's all you're going to do with it, it's going to be great for the most part.
However, if you're planning on using this as a desk or gaming station that you'll sit in for multiple hours at a time (like it's advertised), I don't think that the obutto is that great. The biggest problem is the seat...after a few hours it really starts to get uncomfortable. My height (6'4") causes issues as well. The keyboard swivel arm barely fits under the wheel for me, knocking my mouse off all the time. I can't move the arm any lower(already scraping the tops of my legs) so it's basically an unsolvable problem.
Also, when in 'desk' mode, there's not really any place to put your legs. I end up putting them on either side of the pedals, which isn't that great.
The monitor stand doesn't match the instructions. I put it together and then realized that my monitor was too low (it used to be adjustable, now it isn't). After hours of putting it together, taking something apart like that isn't that appealing.
In closing, I guess my thoughts are that if you're looking for a racing cockpit with light pc use, this might fit the bill. If you're looking for a 50/50 split though, this just isn't adequate in my opinion because of the low comfort level after multiple hours. I'm probably going to end up selling it because of that, which really sucks after all the time and money I spent on it.

The ObuttoR3Volution is so fun to put toghter i'm 14 and it took me 9 hours but I love using my hands so it was a good project. The only thing That was a con is that I had alittle trouble putting toghter the monitor plate but I was watching the Videos by Obutto it's on their website I watched the videos and I put the whole thing toghter and it helped me put the monitor plate the right place.

This cock pit is just amazing I can't ask for anything more. I'm an Iracer and it's perfect for any type of race. I'm getting triple monitor mounts in the future and can't wait till I get them I know it's going to be money. Thank you MainPerformancePc your products and customer support is second to none.

So, it took me a really long time to set up this computer gaming chair. So long that I was about ready to give up and send it back because I didn't think it would be worth the hassle. I put it down for a few hours, and then I was able to finish pretty quickly when I came back to it. I'm happy I finished, because the chair makes gaming much more fun and comfortable. With my triple monitors, this thing is so immersive. Next time I'll have to get someone else to set it up for me.
