I've had this rig for a year and a half now and while it's held up fairly well I can't help but feel disappointed that I dropped $500+ on the oZone rig and the triple monitor mount. I primarily used the oZone for simracing and the occasional workstation and other gaming.
First off, the instructions are awful. They're pretty much non-existant. It'll take a few hours to set up this rig and you'll need to watch a few YouTube videos and compare some pictures to really know how to put this thing together. Really wish that there were some proper instructions or even just an official YouTube video with some quick pointers. Unfortunately there's nothing.
I started off using a Logitech G27 but upgraded to a Fanatec CSWv2 and Clubsport v2 pedals and discovered that the oZone really isn't meant for anything greater than the G27. The force being applied by the CSW is enough to shake the entire rig. This wouldn't be too bad if the monitors weren't mounted onto the rig itself. This caused my monitors to shake enough that I had some difficulty racing. I also wasn't comfortable with the monitors knocking into each other when I ran over some rumble strips.
There's really not enough options to adjust the rig. The wheel mount has a metal bar that goes across the underside of the wheel mounting plate that prevents drilling for hard mounting your wheel. I had a very difficult time hard mounting the CSW. For the G27 it was fine as the G27 comes with the table clamp so that it clamps snugly with the wheel mount. Once the wheel was mounted, you can only really raise and lower the wheel from a 45 degree angle. To raise the wheel higher, you must also bring it more towards you. Because I'm 6' tall, I couldn't get a comfortable location for the wheel. Getting the wheel to a comfortable height also caused the wheel to come too close towards me that I needed to lean the seat back which caused the wheel to then become too high and then I had to readjust, etc. I was forced to pick the least uncomfortable position and just get accustomed to it.
The pedal plate is just a metal plate that sits on a bar that goes across the back of the rig. For the G27 pedals this wasn't too bad as the G27 pedals don't have a load cell so not much force is being applied. However, once I mounted the Clubsport v2 pedals, the plate was constantly shifting tilting back with bar. I tried to remedy this by hard mounting the pedals to the plate and using a bolt to bolt the pedal plate to the bar using a pre-drilled hole by Obutto, however, the single bolt was not enough to completely eliminate this issue.
The seat isn't comfortable. Not really much of a valid complaint as good racing chairs aren't cheap to begin with, but for a rig that is also supposed to be a workstation I was expecting a little better. I ran into an issue within the first couple months where the metal springs that are stretched across the back of the backrest began to pop out of their mounts. The springs are mounted onto bars that run along the sides of the chair. The only thing keeping the bars in place is a simple hole. They're not welded, taped, or glued to the mount so if you're a heavyset person, please be wary about this. When the springs came out of their mount, the backrest was simply a mess. I had to cut open the back of the seat and stretch the metal springs back into their mount and then use zip ties to keep the springs in their place. This was incredibly frustrating as the metal springs were very strong and did not want to go back into their mounts very easily.
The keyboard tray, while a very nice included option for the rig, also suffered from poor adjustability. If you position the keyboard tray any further forward than the furthest back position, you ran into the problem of the keyboard tray hitting the bars for the wheel mount. Because of this, the keyboard tray always sat too close to me for it to be comfortably used for workstation use and general gaming use. It also has an issue of sitting too low so that I would have to lift the tray over my knees, however, this can be lifted and held in place by the twist screws that are used to keep all of the equipment in place.
The shifter mount was ok. I had to hard mount my shifter to it so it required more drilling, but once I got it mounted I didn't run into very many issues. However, the twist screws that held the shifter mount in place needed to be twisted very hard to prevent the shifter from moving around while shifting.
The monitor mount was pretty decent. It has the VESA mount so it should fit most modern monitors and TVs. I had some issues with getting the triple monitor mount set up properly but that's a separate review.
Cup holder was amazing, 5/5 stars.
Also, the quality of the metal bars and welding was good. It's a sturdy rig once put together.
All in all the oZone is a decent beginner rig for getting started in sim racing, however, if you are interested in expanding to better equipment down the line, I would suggest looking at a different rig or look into making your own for less money.

I was very excited to get this. Have been sim racing at my desk using a desk chair. Wanted a more stable platform. This is. It also fit so the pedals are under my desk and my monitor is on the desk edge. So I can also use it as a work station. And I can use it for flight sims.
It came out of the box in good shape. Went together OK (with some fiddling). The video was helpful. It has plenty of mounting holes. It is solid and stable and my T-500 wheel locks on tight.
NOT SO GOOD
The written instructions are a little vague. The video is not detailed enough.
The seat (bottom/lower back) is too hard; needs to be more comfortable.
The T-500 pedals can't use the pedal tray. They fit nicely up against the tray bar but are too far away. I had to make a spacer to bring them closer.
The steering wheel mount is not centered with the seat. My T-500 had to be positioned off-center to the left.
I sent an email asking if I could get an extra L-shaped mounting arm about a week ago and have not heard back.
Bottom Line: I expected better but this will work.

If you're considering buying this mainly as a workstation like I was be aware of one caveat - the chair. The lower side bolsters prevent you from putting your arms by your side (the most ergonomic position) and push against the back of your elbows which may cause discomfort. Maybe the OEM will add an alternative chair option in the future.

I got the Obutto rig after years racing on a not-so-sturdy table and garden chair combo.
First off, I have to say the quality of the materials used is fantastic... The paint was nicely powder-coated, there were no-ill fitting bolts and such.
I used a single 40" inch TV with a 200x200 VESA hole structure, that was incompatible with the mount. Even though I thought it was easy to use an after-market adapter and make adjustments, it was not-so-straightforward, as the size of the mount is close to 200 mm verically so there is no space for us to put in the bolts into the TV. So, my warning to potential buyers would be have a thorough plan for how you are going to mount the adapters if you use a VESA pattern other then the 75 mm or 100 mm sizes.
But now that I have mounted the rig and everything, everything is pretty strudy and it works just as it should.. I can run pretty high FFB with my G27 and there is not much of an issue with flexing or shaking etc.
1) As you would be aware, the distance of the seat from the wheel can be adjusted by means of a railing. The problem is that sometimes, the seat can hook out and slide backwards unexpectedly when braking hard. This doesn't happen too often but it has happened a couple of times, so whenever I am starting an important race, I make it a habit to double-check that the seat will not move backwards in the middle of the race.
2) I use the Fanatec CSR Elite pedals, and unless you bolt them to the pedal plate, they will slide backwards under braking. The grip provided on the pedal plate is not grippy enough the prevent the pedals from sliding. So, that's a con. I have a workaround by placing a shoebox behind the pedals so that there is something to prevent it going backwards.
Overall, I definitely recommend this product if u are transitioning from a table-chair setup. It gives such a better feel while racing, the seat is very comfortable and very adjustable. If you hard-mount the pedals or find a solution similar to mine, you can really go full on the brake pedal. Definitely, a great upgrade!!!

Thank you for your purchase of the Obutto oZone. These pedals do actually fit, you'll need to adjust the cockpit to slide them into the front frame, but once in, they fit and work without issue. See here: http://i.imgur.com/mETXv9n.jpg

Bought this mainly for flight simulation. I already knew I wouldnt be able to use some of the items out of the box, didnt think I would be using only the chair and tabletop...
I have three monitors, all of them do not support VESA. I can easily accomodate that problem with adapters. The rudder pedal table isnt large enough to hold Saitek Pro Flight pedals, so Im not able to use that part of this setup either. Along with that, the acrylic tabletop I bought with it, because I cant use my pedals with that setup attached. So in essence, I feel like I just paid over 700 dollars for a reclining chair. Id return this if I wasnt leery about paying another 200 dollars to ship it back...all of this because my rudder pedals dont fit. Ill continue to play with it to see if I like it overall, but really wish they would have stated these pedals wouldnt fit. Sorry...but make sure you know this before buying.

First off, let me talk about MainPerformancePC.com. Main Performance has some truly excellent Customer Service. They are very responsive, and explain everything completely. Normally, I have my doubts about some online vendors, but these guys are excellent! (Only place to get an Obutto in the US, but I would still buy from these guys if they weren't.)
For anybody looking to do SimRacing, or to step up their game, I recommend this cockpit over all others.
First of all, there is the price. For what you pay here, you get a more complete system, complete with monitor mount than you would for the same money at Playseat.
Secondly, I am a bigger guy. 5'11" 275 lb. This rig is VERY accommodating and comfortable, including long racing sessions. I have had everyone from my 5'2" GF and 6"3"+ Friends in this rig. It is universally comfortable.
I cant recommend this highly enough to those looking to step up their game. There is simply nothing better than moving from a swiveling DXRacer to a solid mounted seat. I have already won 2 races in iRacing since I've had it for about a week. I'm punching above my weight because I am solidly put in position.
Overall, this is a great product. Setup is easy, and it is pretty compact. The only flaw is the keyboard tray, which others have mentioned. Once I purchase the R3volution style mount, it should be good though.
Great product sold by an excellent distributor.
Thanks Main Performance!

I got this for my husband back in Jan and he's thrilled. Main Performance did a great job answering my questions and helping me figure out what was best for his needs. I actually was going to buy the r3volution but they talked me into the cheaper one since he wont ever go with three screens. saved me a few hundred dollars and he is a happy camper! the main performance staff was very professional and everything arrived and was communicated as promised. I also ordered a PC for him too and that has been a blast as we both share it (He uses it for iRacing, and I use it for my girly games)

Taking off the bubble wrap was an absolute hell!!!
The cockpit is top quality! It was very easy to put together, but putting the seat on was a bit tricky. I don't know if it's just me, but I don't think my legs are fat at all and it was a SUPER tight fit with the keyboard tray and the wheel being mounted. Overall I would ditch the keyboard tray like I did and put this on the side of your daily desk. The seat is very comfortable! Phenomenal for racing.
Cockpit this is 5/5, but as a workstation I would give it a 3/5. Maybe having the articulating keyboard and the acrylic table would help a lot for every day use.
My seat came with an indent, which has reshaped to normal like I was told and it also had a rip. I was offered a new seat or cash. The mainperformance customer service was TOP notch and very quick and caring and on top of it Chris from Obutto contacted me which just shows they care and stand by their product which is a MASSIVE plus! AMAZING company with an AMAZING product that really makes sim racing enjoyable.
