I had a very old Playseat that had been broken and repaired over the last dozen years, so when I researched for a "sim racing rig" this one really appealed to me. I pre-ordered and was glad to receive it. The build instructions were bad - I had lots of missing hex nuts. Probably this is due to it being one of the first batch. Really the assembly is easy. I think it came in 5 heavy heavy boxes.
I am mainly playing GT7, and I have found that my load cell brake is working better on this rig rather than the flex I used to get on the play seat from yesteryear.
The electric blue Alpine F1 livery is a great thing. It's nice to have something other than black metal.
The seat I find to be a little stiff - but it actually does work well for comfort over a long 3 hour session really - so I am getting used to it and it's fine.
It feels good getting into the rig - I no longer need to lift a leg over a bar kind of thing. It's Rock Rock solid, and easy to get into the seat and out of the rig as well. Nice! This is how it should be! Yah, you will be liking this rig if you get it I would say.
Maybe I'd like to get the 55" OLED TV a little closer - it is sort of blocked by the metal support up front. I'll be thinking that one over a bit.
I have only had one other rig. This is a huge step up for me. The build quality is very good. The design is very good. The colour is excellent.
I have not tried the F1 seat and pedal and…
