Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design Funvideo racing the way it should beDecided this Christmas to upgrade my son's experience with Forza Horizon 3 with the Ferrari steering wheel and pedals. After spending an hour setting up a platform and blocks to hold the pedals, it still wasn't the fun it should be.
Went online to Playseat, and didn't hesitate. The chair arrived three days later. Had it assembled and racing within 20 min.
A very satisfying purchase. Recommended it to my brother-in-law and he bought one too.
Wonderful product. Forza and Dirt Rally are so much more fun to play!

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunSUPERCALIFRAGALISTICEXPEALIDOCOUSNothing more to say than if you like driving simulator games, to get the real experience you need a Playseat.
I purchased the seat slider which I find very useful as well as the Playseat mat which can be used in x2 ways.
1. Non slip resistance on one side.
2. The other side allows you to slide along laminated floors is having to move the seat.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design Fun2 words: Freaking Awesome!I ordered this as a Christmas present for myself and I couldn't be more happy. This chair meets all my expectations and more. I was trying to decide between the vinyl seat or the alcantara and chose the vinyl because of its looks.
The pedal and wheel mounts are super sturdy! When playing racing games there is no movement whatsoever in the frame. The seat is super comfortable which makes playing for long hours possible.
Shipping was super fast! I got my chair in 2 days from overseas! Setup is really easy, which takes around 20-30 minutes with the supplied hardware. I would recommend purchasing the seat slider as well for easy adjustment of seating position.
Since receiving my Playseat, in 1 week I have logged over 100 hours of seat time. I am 6' 3", 215 lbs, and it is unbelievable comfortable. The seat is shaped to model a real racing seat that provides cushion and support in all the right areas.
My Thrustmaster TX wheels and pedals mount up perfectly on the pedal and wheel mount. The Playseat offers adjustability for both wheel and pedals to suit your preferred position.
I plan on purchasing the shifter mount in the future to add to the realism.
In summary, this is the best racing rig you can buy for the money. It is budget friendly with so much value. If you want to add an uncanny amount of realism to your racing games, this is the seat for you. The Playseat folds up perfectly to hide away when not in use. I look forward to many more hours of fun!
I have recommended this seat to at least 6 of my friends who are looking to purchase racing rigs. If you are thinking of buying a rig, BUY THIS PLAYSEAT!
Thanks again for making a great product!

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunA seat with the right feel for drivingUsing VR it got obvious what kind of seat you are in matters. With a head mounted display on it is obvious the ass feels what it is sitting on. Compared to home built setups used prior this seat is much easier getting in and out, more authentic and more comfortable.
Only drawback is you can sometimes touch and feel the wheel mount to the side of your legs. Almost never feel it when driving. Usually it is when just seated and making sure where each of the pedals are.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunWelcome to SimRacingI've never thought that i could have a race car in my living room, but with the Playseat evo it's definitely possible ! you can have the best steering wheel and the best racing game but if you don't have the proper seat it s all just a waste ! and thanks to the playseat evo my gaming setup reached finally its full potential !
By cja711 from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunAmazing Product!I bought the chair with the Thrustmaster TMX Wheel and Pedals. It was very easy to set up and although the Thrustmaster pedals and wheel can't be fixed directly to the mounts on the chair, the supplied Velcro serves as an amazing mounting system! The chair is easy to set up and also easily adjustable so it can be suited for people of all heights which is very beneficial for me as I'm not the only one who uses the chair!
Overall a fantastic product and I would recommend it to anyone, beginner or pro, for their gaming setup! I will definitely remain a customer for the foreseeable future!

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunFast delivery, good design, great price.Im having lots of fun with it. just takes a little time setting up the Logitech G29 steering wheel and tuning it in with Dirt Rally on my PS4. Now i just have to practise on the thing.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunThe real SimRacing experienceBuying the evolution black took my SimRacing experience to an all-new level! I don't worry anymore about my back pain I can race for a long period of time without feeling any pain or getting tired! Not to mention that my skills got better and better because the more comfortable you are the more stability you have with the steering wheel so your SimRacing experience get closer to reality!
I had so much fun using it and I recommend anyone who wants to improve his racing experience to get it!
By Leviathan from Australia
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunA must haveA must have for those with a high quality wheel and pedals, perfect fit, lots of options for different makes and models (Many screw holes for the different form variants).
By Adam from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunImpressive ProductThis really is a must-have if you plan on purchasing a wheel. It looks and feels great. Plus, the way it is designed you can easily remove the wheel/pedal assembly, slide it to the side, and continue using the seat as a general gaming chair. My only complaint would be the holes for the G29 pedals don't seem to quite align exactly any way that I could find. Maybe I need to take another look at it. However, the wheel matched up perfectly. Fast shipping and easy to assemble!
By Bailey from New Zealand

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGood quality/ComfortableOriginally I have ordered another seat but since it was out of stock I was offered this Evolution seat which is great and very comfortable and stable with easy adjustments. Easy assembly to set it up. Very good customer service, happy clients.
By Emstango15 from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunAmazing racing seat.I bought this racing seat. I was kinda skeptical at first. It's my first racing seat. Actually ordered the playseat champion. They informed me hours later that it was out of stock and if I would accept the playseat evolution instead for same price. From oder processed to my doorstep took 3 business days. Which is amazing. Very easy and fast assembly. I love it and will definitely continue being a customer with playseat and there awesome products
By BSilence from Portugal
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat quality/priceHad great time setting up the Evolution Seat, it takes a while, but with the accurate instructions on it, it's really easy to do it.
After the assembly is done, it's highly adjustable, the gap between the bench and the support for the pedals, the suport for the wheel can go up or down, to became closer or farther from the "driver", the support for the pedals as a various number of possible positions, so the "driver" can be very confortable with is feets on it.
High quality in the materials, the seat as a nice "leather like" finish and it's very confortable to seat on.
When all of this was customized for my height/length, well, then was just fun, and fun and fun.
I recommend this product to all the person that wants a seat to spend some hours having fun while playing a nice racing game, and want to spend a little money as possible.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunFuntasticWow......purchased this play seat for my son in law for Christmas and he loves it.
It's sturdy, looks good & very comfortable, great quality and design, in fact my son in law cannot get enough of it, I'm sure if he had his way he would sleep in it.
The company offer rapid dispatch, exceptional packaging and courteous customer service, I'm very happy with this purchase.
By mad_house from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat Product and Great Customer ServiceAfter ordering the Champion sear online I was notified that the item was out of stock. Playseat offered the upgraded Evolution at the same price. The seat arrived by FedEx within a week. In time for Christmas. The item was easy to assemble and is very well built. I did have to mount the seat to a board for better steering stability. Sitting on padded carpet enabled the steering column too much side play. I cut the MDF sheet slightly larger than the seat and covered it with gray indoor outdoor carpet. It looks just like outdo carpet. The only design change I would recommend would be an additional support under the foot pedal plate. Because of the overhang and the force being placed on the pedals there is quite a bit of flex at the plate adjustment pivot. I cut and painted a piece of wood to 'wedge' in between the plate and my mounting board. It is now extremely solid. I don't worry about any stress on the pivot/adjustment. I very much recommend this product. Do not hesitate to purchase. You will not find a better price, service, or quality anywhere else.
By Bobby from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunFun product, great quality!Easy to set up, verywell built! FUN! I would definitely recommend this to a friend or family member who would be interested. Everyone wants it when they see it. Definitely a good buy!
By sinaro from Belgium
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunOveral good service and productFast delivery, good service. Frame not the best quality, still moving around when playing. When frequently fixed in different positions fast frame damage.
Back of the chair is kind of hard.
Gaming experience is super fun with thrustmaster t300rs config.
By Wolf from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunAwesome Product!The Playstation Evolution is the best simulation assembly I have bought. Price for price Playseat has the best prices. Most similar products cost 410€ or more and they are not compatible with all wheels and pedals. The same product from Raceroom is not only more expensive, but are not complete. One must buy additional parts depending on the gaming platform and which wheel/pedals they have.
The Playseat Evolution is compatible with all gaming platforms and wheel/pedal sets. It also includes all of the hardware and tools to assemble the rig along with additional hardware for your wheel/pedal set.

By Momof2boys from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunKids love the seat!!!I don't usually take the time to write reviews...but for this, I felt I needed to. When I opened the box, I was very impressed. The seat was way nicer than what I expected and it was well constructed and relatively easy for me (the mom who is not that handy) to assemble. My kids (including the big kid - my husband) have been playing with this non-stop! It gives them a great experience for their racing games that they would previously have to go to an arcade for. I would definitely buy again and highly recommend.
By Chuck from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunOutstanding customer service, top quality productThe PlayseatStore was a pleasure to work with. The questions I had prior to purchase were answered promptly and thoroughly.
The Evolution Black seat with Ferrari Spider Steering wheel was easy to assemble along with the optional sliding seat adjustment. Product quality is unbelievably realistic and works like a real car seat. This is built to last! We purchased it as a Christmas gift for our son and it was a huge hit. I highly recommend this for anyone into racing games, the game experience is awesome!
By rubiconvic from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunMost awesome gamig chair set upI purchased the Evolution Playseat with slider and shifter attachments. It arrived via Fed Ex in a blink of the eye! WOW! I opened all 3 the assembly instructions together to map out the build. Took about 30 minutes. Super sturdy and moves easily out of way went not in use. I have put many hours in the seat at one time. It is very comfortable.
I love it!!!!
By Jamie Nethercott from United Kingdom
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunAmazing product.Very high quality and easy to assemble. The adjustability of the chair and frame gives me the most comfortable racing position. I also bought the Logitech G920 Xbox One wheel for PlaySeat and they go great together. Very pleased with my purchase. Thank you PlaySeat
By Englishdb from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunVery Good SeatI initially purchased this seat as a Birthday present. I had a lot of issues with the payment as I used two different cards and they were both rejected due to security purposes so I went through the PayPal option which I would highly suggest to anyone ordering from this site. My order was placed on hold and I had to live chat with them to have the issue resolved, but I can say it was resolved quickly and the level of service from the customer service team is very good. Once the issue was resolved I was stunned to see that Playseat store is true to their word as the package arrived 2 days later!!! Phenomenal service considering how far the item had travelled. Once I opened the box the wait was worth it.
The seat is made very well and very sturdy. There were no pieces missing and set up is surprisingly easy. I set the seat up at a very slow pace and I took me around an hour, but it could be easily installed in 30 minutes, maybe less. The material of the seat is a very comfortable and realistic leather-like fabric. The material of the structure is a very strong tubular metal, which feels very solid during and after installation. The seat itself is very comfortable although it could benefit from more lumbar support and an adjustable back. The rig itself is incredibly adjustable which is very useful in finding exactly the right position. I was anticipating issues with the steering wheel column being between my legs, but can say it causes no issues or discomfort and now I don't even realize its there.
I also purchased the seat slider and the gear shift holder. Gearshift holder was very easy to install and very useful in-game. The slider was more complicated to install and almost felt over-engineered BUT once installed it is a wonder and feels so solid. I would say don't follow the instructions on the seat slider as they are not very good.
All in all I am very happy with the seat. Its not a cheap seat but I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I am enjoying my seat with not only diving simulators but with all of my games.

By geth from Canada
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat experience for a great price.I recently bought this seat. Along with the gear shifter pro. The seat isvery ccomfortable easy to install and set up. Has a very user friendly fully adjustable set up designed to fit your comfort. This unit also folds down to accommodate small spaces. The gear shift pro was very easy to install with these units. It's such good quality for the price. And the price is not bad at all. Only 1 flaw I found with this chair. If your a little shorter your brake pedal might be blocked by the bar that holds your steering wheel.
10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to get into the hobby.
By WhiteKnucklz from United States
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunElevating the 'Sim' ExperienceThe 'Playseat Evolution' is a very well made and durable product at it's given price point.
Aesthetically speaking this is a great way to get the look and feel of getting behind the wheel without breaking the bank.
My only criticism of this particular model would be Logitech G27 compatibility. Per other reviews the pedal assembly does not offer enough connection points without additional drilling.
In addition, the steering wheel assembly can only be adjusted up/down, not allowing for a 'tilt' adjustment to the G27 wheel.
By Bob from Canada
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat Seat.Great Chair for the price very solid easy to build about 30 minutes. Im very satisfied.
By HappyCustomer from United Kingdom
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunBrilliantThe Playseat evolution is a brilliant piece of kit for any driving enthusiast gamer. The Thrustmaster 458 Italia wheel and pedals fit easily to the platforms and can be angled to suit the driver. The seatslider is a great addition to the realistic fell off the driving experience and makes getting into the seat and adjustments quick when you have to switch drivers. Highly recommended.
By X-ela422 from Canada
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunVery comfortable, well built, lot of fun!!The 'Playseat Evolution'' is well built, solid and stable. These are pieces of good qualities and it is simple to mount. The only negative to mention: the pedal support is not compatible with the pedal system of the Logitech G27. I had to drill an additional hole to install the pedals properly and securely. It keeps up with only two (2) screws.. Other than that, just fun!!
***Design: Only 3 stars because the pedal bracket in not compatible with ALL types of pedals as mentionned on the site..***

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat Product, Awsome QualityI have now had the Playseat Challenge, and upgraded to this one. This chair is great, it is heavy so portability isn't quite as good, but if you want a great comfortable experience when playing your games this is the seat for you. I have nothing negative to say, the quality is great, the instructions were easy and I plan on enjoying this chair for a long time.

By fred from United Kingdom
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunProject cars!Always loved racing games but never had anywhere to secure the steering wheel and pedals properly. I decided to get a playseat and its awesome, does not take up that much space and is really comfortable. I bought this specifically to play project cars and have clocked up over 40 hours in the seat so far in the first four weeks!
The seat provides the perfect solution to get those lap times down and provides total emersion. Thanks playseat for a totally awesome product and super fast delivery.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat Product!Playseat Evolution is a great seat! It feels like your sitting on a real car. This seat along with the Logitech G27 racing wheel go well together. This seat actually gives a great atmosphere to my home basement which makes it more exciting. I recommend this seat to anybody looking for a great racing seat at a great price.

By Alex from Canada
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat seat, could be improvedI've been having an awesome time with my Playseat Evolution and G27 racing wheel since i've had them. I'm a Gran Turismo player and being able to play the game in an actual driving position makes the experience so much more immersive and engaging. One thing I was worried about before getting the seat was the stability of if. I'd read reviews of other seats where people were complaining about their seat's wheel holder wobbling when they did sudden steering movement; with this seat that's definitely not an issue. It's very stable and comfortable, I can race for hours without any problem. The ONE thing that I'm disappointed about is the design of the pedals section. If you have a 3 pedal set like the one that comes with the G27, you'll find that you have to reach behind the bottom part of the wheel holder with your right foot when you want to brake. It just gets in the way and that can be annoying at times. Other than that i'm happy with my purchase and would recommend this seat to fellow sim racers.

Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunMakes racing even more fun!I always wanted a racing chair that could accommodate a racing wheel, and this chair doesn't disappoint. I've had a much more enjoyable experience with my racing games since I purchased it. The chair was very easy to put together and the construction is sturdy. I think anyone wanting a quality gaming chair should seriously consider purchasing the Playseat Evolution, or any of the other chairs manufactured by the company.
By Maurice from Netherlands
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunBest gaming seatThis is the best gaming seat, the leather is really good quality, easy to install with the manual and the steering wheel fits perfect! It is a really good design, you can set the seat perfectly to your body for the best gaming and race preformance. It is really worth the money! Also if you race intense the seat stay stable! Perfect!

By Michael L from United Kingdom
Overall Price / Quality Comfort Design FunGreat seat!The seat is very comfortable and tucks you in like a real race seat. It is very easy to setup as all instructions are straight forward and they supply you with all the tools so you don't have to worry.
Price / Quality Overall Comfort Design FunCraftsmanshipThe details on this thing are the best. You can tell it's high quality craftsmanship. I love how stable it is, even during super fast racing action. The Evolution is not the cheapest racing chair but I think it's definitely worth the money.
Price / Quality Overall Comfort Design FunGreat PurchaseThis sim seat is amazing. It looks fantastic, is extremely stable, very adjustable and the design is neat and looks professional. The experience you get here is unbeatable.
Price / Quality Overall Comfort Design FunGreat gaming chairI’m using the Playseat Evolution a few weeks now and it’s really awesome! Putting the chair together was quite easy (with the instruction manual). It took me less than half an hour. After installing my Logitech G27 wheel I used the zip ties that come with the package to keep the wiring out of the way. It’s amazing how comfortable and adjustable this chair is. It took me a while to get everything in the right position, but that was mostly because I couldn’t wait to play, so I adjusted everything in between games. You have to be a bit flexible to reach the brakes, because of the steering wheel bar that stands between your legs, but that doesn’t really bother me, since the racing experience is awesome!
