Gaming has become very popular, and it was only a matter of time before I gave in to the advertisements. I became instantly hooked on games and now consider myself an avid gamer. So, I thought it was about time I started investing in a good PC Gaming chair. I found that BestOffice had decently priced gaming chairs on Amazon and came across a “Racing type High Back Office Chair”. I loved the slick leather look and decided to purchase it.

My First Impression
When the chair first arrived, my immediate impression was that I had gotten lucky. The deal on the chair was unbelievable for the quality I received. The leather looked as sleek as it did in the online photographs, and it fit perfectly at my desk. I took my first seat in it and was amazed at how the chair supported my back. My old desk chair didn’t have nearly enough lumbar support, but this chair had a nice backrest area. I tested the chair’s movability and found that it extended backward like a bed and had a foot rest. It didn’t take me long to begin gaming.
The New Gaming Chair High-back Computer Chair has an abundance of game immersive features. Each feature is designed to enhance the overall gaming experience. The chair, itself, has a “Bucket Seat” and molding back support for ultimate comfort. It’s aimed to feel almost like a soft hug. The backrest on the chair is also supremely higher than most chairs, enabling support for the entirety of your spine. The intent of the chair is to provide the user with a calming quality, even if he or she were to be gaming at a high-intensity level.
The chair also provides comfortable arm rests, adjustable heights for the chair and head rest, and a conventional tilt mechanism that allows a 360-degree swivel and 90 to 180 degrees backward movement. All of this is combined with luxury leather and design that elevates the chair beyond gaming experience and as a piece of furniture that will look nice in your home.
- The chair has the ability to allow for rocking motions, giving the gamer better movability while active.
- Because several of the pieces on the chair are adjustable, it allows the gamer to personalize the chair for his or her needs.
- Other reviewers have commented on the chair’s durability after a period of time and noted the chair remained sturdy and reliable. It’s great quality.
- Despite most of the chair being adjustable, the arm rests are not. This could cause problems with fitting the chair directly under the desk.
- The customer service of BestOffice has been noted as delayed. One customer reviewed that a piece on the chair had come broken, probably from poor handing during shipping, and it took “forever” to get the replacement.
Experience & Performance
After using the chair on a daily basis for the past month, I can honestly say the quality of the chair for its price still amazes me. It has remained sturdy and reliable, as well as comfortable. The leather remains flawless, and though I did find that the arm rests were too high to fit under my desk, I don’t play my games with the chair pushed all they way under anyways. There haven’t been any chips or scratches. I will note that I wish the wheels on the chair locked. Sometimes, if I get too excited from a win, I’ll jump and my chair will roll away. I did see some other customers have commented on the matter, and that the wheels can be replaced with ones that do lock.
The lumbar cushion and the headrest are both provided with the purchase of the chair. The chair arrives essentially preassembled with the exception of a few screws to tighten here and there and the placement of the pillows, according to your preference. There’s also an instruction manual for assembly that is simple to read and follow. There is no warranty information listed on Amazon, but the seller is known to respond to any and all issues. The retractable footrest is also provided with its accompanying pillow.
Several of the best gaming chairs are nearly the same quality as this chair. However, this gaming chair is reasonably priced. I highly recommend this gaming chair as a “first” gaming chair. As a gamer, it’s important to not blow all your money on the first chair you see or the one that everyone says is “The Best”, because at the end of the day it’s personal preference. Because this chair features so many adjustable parts, it’s a great way to get a feel for what you like in a gaming chair, and it’ll last you long enough to save up for a higher quality chair, or to simply buy another.
For me, the chair fits all of my needs. I don’t see myself replacing it anytime soon, and when I do, I may just buy the same chair again. It’s cost efficient and great quality. I really can’t ask for more.
