Motion Simulators, a comparison

There are a number of motion simulators on the market, and making sense of the differences might not always be obvious.   For instance, does the whole cockpit move keeping the driver relative with the racing simulator controls?   Do the visuals move with the cockpit, keeping the windshield and mirrors consistent with the driver’s view?   Below is a detailed chart that answers these questions.
