I like this rig, but this is not a real car seat. I have never sat in a car and have lower back pain. I have had this for a month now and it still hurts my back and I never have back problems. I have tried making adjustments but nothing has worked. I don't regret buying it but I was expecting a better seat for 700 hundreds. Probably just going to get another seat for it someday.

It’s almost 2 years that I’m using it and I would like to share my experience.
Let’s start from the pros:
- Everything you need is there. No need of extra bolts/tools.
- Well packed and protected
- Heavy central structure
- Order and shipment was top notch and perfect
A part for this the list of cons is quite long so be ready:
- two washers where damaged/cut and one thread of the bolts damages and no spares present
- Seating position can not be change in elevation (im actually driving with 3 cm of washers under each of the 4 screws of the seat + pillow)
- Triple monitor stands is very hard if not impossible to align and if you touch/push/pull you will risk to lost your alignment.
- With 27 inch screen the provided holes to regulate the monitor height are not very effective. This is connected also with the point no. 1. The seating position (I’m 1.75cm) is too low and the screen center is well above the eyeballs forcing you to watch upwards creating stress and pain to your neck. If you use the lowest point the screens are too low and impaired by the wheel and you need to put them too far away from your position
- The legs and the entire monitor stand is not firm and stable.
- Keyboard and mouse is never flat. I’ve tried to regulate with the provided screw without success (btw they are very uncomfortable to reach and use)
- The cover mat is not covering the entire surface.
- The bolts are too shorts for connection between the seat structure and the central rig structure.
- Seat is not so rigid and when using load cell brake you can feel the back flexing and moving
- The wheel support has springboard effects. Very solid when moving left and right but up/down is not.
- The fabric of the seat is on the itchy/hot side. Always used a light towel to cover it
It would have been a great rig but not for the selling price.
It does the job and you can leave with all the above issues that you can try to solve with some modification but again not at that cost.
I was planning to upgrade to Direct Drive wheel and better pedal set but unfortunately i will have to change it as it won't be able to handle the weight and forces of this type of equipment.

Aside from 3 stripped bolts/screws, assembly was pretty simple. I used the videos online as a guide, which narrowed my installation time to about 3 hours. I was nervous about size, being the desk was going in a 9x9 room. Fits great.
I strongly suggest the acrylic mounts immediately. Im very glad I got them with the purchase of the Revolution.
I have a 40" 4k 400x400 vesa patterned monitor attached to the monitor stand. The standard bracket on the stand would not fit, so a $10 adapter from amazon did the trick.
I am 6', 155 lbs, about a 34" waist, and I fit in this seat nicely. I followed most suggestions in the installation videos regarding where to setup things, and im pretty happy.
Great desk. It will serve its purpose for many, many years to come.

I don't have time for a long review, but I just wanted to let it be known that I bought mine in 2014 and have used it every single day to this day and have nothing but absolute love for it. I'm not sure why anyone has any complaints about the seat being uncomfortable but I guess we are all made differently. I'm 6'2" 186 lbs and 32" waist with fairly athletic build and it fits me like a glove.
I use this rig for working for IT / network administration from home so I have the acrylic desks to hold a phone and coffee, etc. It's so nice that this thing can accommodate so many roles. I sim race, FPS games and do at least 8 hours a day of working remotely on servers and with my previous typical wooden desks and desk chairs, I was in constant unrest to be comfortable but now, work is the only discomfort I feel now lol.
Keep in mind that these desks are more or less custom fitted to you when you build them. It is no easy thing to go back and adjust pedal tray or positioning of certain things so get it close to how you want it while building and explain to others that it is customized to fit YOU and not them so they shouldn't try to judge it based on their own experience if they are made differently than you. My wife is much shorter than I am and smaller frame so she has a real issue of seeing over the wheel, which metal risers under the seat would fix that but it wouldn't help me any so.... its more of a one person desk more or less. Still I've looked high and low and for years for a desk that could answer all the needs that this one does and for way more money than this costs, nothing out there managed to nail all of my wants perfectly like the Revolution.

What do I mean by the primary HID, or Human Interface Device? The seat. But I'll get to that in a moment after I stop gushing about how wonderful this setup is otherwise.
It really is wonderful. I don't play racing sims, but I do play flight sims and other such games, along with FPS/shooters. For both styles of games, this setup is exactly what I've always needed: an easy way to use my keyboard and mouse, and just as easy a way to use my flight stick, throttle, and rudder pedals. I have the Thrustmaster Warthog attachments, and it's set up center stick (between my legs), with the throttle on the left, and the keyboard/mouse tray on the right.
The LCD panel stand is also relatively good, but it's not well suited for those of us who are... short. Even its lowest setting has the panels up too high. I fixed that by just removing the height bolts and letting the LCD carrier rest on the lower part of the stand's legs. Basically: gravity is holding panel in place versus a pair of bolts.
Finally: the seat. There's no way I can say anything good about this seat. I'd be more comfortable sitting on a flat, metal bus stop bench for 5 hours than I would sitting in this seat for 30 minutes. Absolute and unrelenting back and leg pain. It's obnoxiously bad.
I'm not a large person by any stretch (32" waist, FWIW). The seat's side rails are metal tubes with the thinnest of fabrics and padding over them. I literally can't sit in the seat for more than 30 minutes without being in horrendous pain. To solve some of that, I have a pile of pads and pillows on top of the seating surface, but they're still not enough.
I've love to rate the R3v higher because it solved my perennial problem of keyboard/mouse/joystick setups. But the seat, which is the primary piece of equipment, just sucks. Horribly.

Love it. Finally I am comfortable gaming at my comp.
The only complaint I have is that one of the acrylic table tops had a corner chipped off.
Other than that, I am very satisfied.

Just got my Obutto R3Volution setup and so far think I'll be able to spend hours upon hours in it working. Currently have the acrylic tabletops tilted, one is holding a textbook and the other is holding a set of construction drawings. I have the drawings clipped at the top with a binder clip and am able to flip through them easily that way. The seat is holding me (6'0" 185lb) very comfortably. Regarding the TV Mount, it could have been engineered to be a bit more stable. I have two 32" LED Insignia TVs on it right now. The mount and TVs aren't going to tip over but there is a little play when they are moved around. I have the TV stand setup on carpeting so that may be the reason it has some give. Either way, that is the only complaint I have about the system, otherwise I love it!
Like someone said in another post, the box arrived like it been drug everywhere. The package that holds all of the small parts; bolts, nuts, washers, and lock washers was opened when I started putting the cockpit together. Didn't lose any bolts, nuts, or washers but did have to go find some other lock washers. This problem should be addressed.
All in all the cockpit is fitting my needs very nicely. Thinking about buying some racing/flying simulation gear now that I have the cockpit to go with it!

Let me start off by saying this is an absolute masterpiece of equipment and I am happy with it overall, but for the money... I expected more.
I agree with a previous review stating the lowest wheel height adjustment is still really high. I am 5'8" and my Fanatec Wheel is a little too high for my liking. One way to remedy it would be to add spacers to the seat to make it higher.
Another gripe was that I was constantly cleaning out the threads on the unit and hardware because they were full of powdercoat overspray. (Why isn't Obutto cleaning the threads after the powder coating process?)
One of the biggest issues I have is the Single TV Mount. I have a 47" LG TV that weighs 40 lbs and it is sagging at the articulating point of the mount and no matter how tight I go with the hardware the TV is constantly tilting down. With the single mount, I don't need it to extend and/or articulate because I can move the mount closer or farther if I'd like. I understand that all the triple mount is, is an extension of the center single mount, but a fixed mount (with tilt only) should be offered. (Yeah yeah I know.. get a smaller TV... not an option, I like my 47" LG)
My last issue was the packaging/shipping. My cockpit had to go from Washington State all the way across the country to New York and by the looks of the box when I received it, it looked like it was dragged behind a truck the entire way. I was devastated once i saw the boxes, expecting the worst. Fortunately, most of the items inside were still in good condition when opened. My only suggestion would be to either A) ship it using a freight company and put them on a pallet or B) Ship them in more than 2 boxes, because UPS doesn't deal with the 125 lb box too well, they are used to carrying boxes under their arms, instead... mine looked like it was kicked and pushed off the back of the truck at every UPS terminal during its travels to me.
On a final note, I am happy with my Obutto R3volution Cockpit. I really like the overall appearance of it... think Stealth Bomber. I like the adaptability of the unit, it gives people many options of use instead of it being limited to only one.
I would give MainPerformance PC 10 out of 10 stars if I could... they are the only place that offers the Obutto R3volution Cockpit to US consumers and they back it with an awesome warranty. Thanks MPPC... you guys are great!
