Comparable prices tend to be $350 and $435, respectively.
I know there’s not a lot of OzB love for these sort of gaming chairs.
But I’m thinking of giving them a shot. I’ve gone through a series of cheap office chair types from Aldi, Kmart, etc., and always end up with lumbar and buttock discomfort with long enough use. I’m sure part of that’s attributable to my frame (190cm, 70kg) and poor posture.
At least the ergonomic design should help, and I have faith in the durability of polyurethrane. I think most other non-gaming chairs in this sort of price range tend to use PU (or PVC), and I can’t tell the difference in design (except for the aesthetic obviously).
Reviews and opinions seem to be divided, for both gaming and non-gaming types. Ranging from years of use maintaining impeccable condition, to flattening and shedding of material after mere months. Is it just a matter of YMMV?
