Re: Gaming Chair

Challenge with the first one (I have had this type of office/gaming chair before) is that after a few years, the seat covers start to split/fray, and it looks quite shabby - I now have a mesh chair from Costco, which I'm very happy with (very supportive, but cool in summer).

Re: Gaming Chair

I always have fabric [office] chairs, I prefer them to leather.

Re: Gaming Chair

What's the difference between a gaming chair as opposed to a standard chair?

Re: Gaming Chair

It might help if you gave some idea on what price range you are looking at.

Re: Gaming Chair

Re: Gaming Chair

This sort of thing is personal. I am a larger guy so my butt dictates what sort of chair I buy. After many years and many different office/gaming chairs I opted for a reclining armchair and a dining table for my desk. Soon got used to the height. When I game fps on keyboard and mouse I sit comfortably forward and when I game with a controller I sit back in reclined feet up comfort arrrrr

(Don't Buy a "Gaming Chair" - Office Chair vs. Gaming Chair Round-Up & Review)

I don't get the appeal, plenty of better and more comfortable chairs around.

Re: Gaming Chair

Personally, I use Ikea Markus, along with many forumers here:

https://www.reclinerland.com/best-massage-gaming-chair/

Which I concluded to be a pretty good value for money at a lower budget(RM499 for the fabric version).

My criteria included:
1. Need headrest
2. Can lean back and lock (Markus leans at about 60 degrees I think)
3. Fabric (Important if your location only uses a fan and not aircond)

Tips:
1. Ergo-wise, Markus is satisfactory la. If you want more ergo assurance can eye for Herman Miller(+$$). Someone else can advise if AmOffice is good on ergo or not.
2. If want a full lean back and an eye for a gaming chair, some can lean up to 180 degrees.
3. You may consider leather if you use it in an air-cond room and you're prepared to maintain the leather(not sure how sapu Minyak or something to prevent flaking?)
4. Fabric chair maintenance involves vacuuming and wiping with a wet cloth.
5. More often than not, you should skip those less reputable China chairs under RM300. I've yet to see the one which could potentially look like it's comfortable, sturdy, and long-lasting. Typically the wheels will pecah first. Study the customer reviews.
6. If you ever are able, do leave a thorough and detailed review of your purchased chair for the benefit of other people who are looking for office chairs. We were once in their shoes hoping for the same enlightenment. smile.gif
Something better than "terima kasih terima kasih terima kasih terima kasih" or "selamat diterima belum try lagi. pape seller bagus".
