Gaming Chairs vs Office Chairs – See Differences & Best Examples!

In these times on the market you can find a lot of chairs. Main two kids are office chairs and gaming chairs.

A lot of people are trying to find some answers and ask “what is the difference between office and gaming chairs?”.

In this article I will explain you what you can expect from these two types of chairs and which one – office chair vs gaming chair will be the better for you.

In the second part of the article I will also show you 3 very good office chairs and 3 gaming chairs. You could choose the best for you depends on your budget and needs.

Office Chair vs Gaming Chair – The Main Differences

I can bet that you saw office chairs a lot of times. This kind of chairs are very common and in every office and almost in every house you can find one like that.

Office Chairs

Office chairs have regular design, very often with mesh or leather material.

Price range of office chairs is very wide. You can find it as cheap as $40 and on the other end even $1000 for chairs like Herman Miller Aeron. Of course chairs for $40 or $50 won’t be the best choice but I had to mention this to be clear.

Better office chairs have neck and lumbar support which you can adjust to your needs.

gaming chairs

Gaming chairs are quite new type of chairs. They become more popular in last few years mainly because of pro gamers and e-sport.

Design of gaming chairs is inspired by racing car seats and thanks to that you can easily recognize gaming chair through the other chairs.

Gaming chairs almost always have pillows for neck and lumbar support – usually you can’t find it in office chairs.

Price of gaming chairs is in most cases from $200 to $500. But you can still find cheaper gaming chair (even under $200 – I will show you good example later in the article).

A lot of people think that gaming chairs are for people who play a lot of hours – 7 or more. It’s true but on good office chair you can also play or work 7 or more hours without pain. You need to remember about breaks and some exercises from time to time, that’s it.

So What Chair Should I Choose? Office Chair Or Gaming Chair?

Before the choice which chair you are going to buy you need to ask you some questions.

1. What is your budget?
If you don’t want to spend more than $100 on your chair you should focus more on office chair than gaming chairs. Most popular and the best gaming chairs companies are DXRacer, AKRacing or Vertagear and their chairs are worth more than $200. Under $100 you can’t find nothing good if you want gaming chair. But there are some options under $200 (scroll down and check Ficmax chair).

2. Do you like fancy, racing car style?
I read that a lot of people like that kind of design. But also it’s not perfect for everyone. This is only up to you which design of chair you prefer in your room / office: regular and simple design like office chairs have or fancy and sharp gaming chair racing style design.

3. How many hours you spend on your chair?
As I said before you can use both office and gaming chair for long hours work / play. But I’d recommend you more expensive chairs (about $200 or more) if you want to sit on it more than let’s say 4 hours a day.

17 Cheap Gaming Chairs Under $100, $200 & For PC, PS4 & Xbox!

Why you should consider buy cheap gaming chair?

If you are reading this article you probably play a lot. Maybe on the computer, maybe on your console. No matter what your choice is you will find in this article good and cheap gaming chairs – both for PC and consoles.

You may looking for the cheapest gaming chair for a few reasons. Probably you like design of these type of chairs. I also do, so I understand your preferences.

Second reason is probably you don’t have enough comfort right now on your gaming (or office) chair, am I right?

If you wonder “Is cheap gaming chair also good for long hours of playing?” I can already say you that the answer is “yes”.

Let's find good and cheap gaming chair. Because you know, what's the point to play without comfort? It doesn't really make sense.

Let’s find good and cheap gaming chair. Because you know, what’s the point to play without comfort? It doesn’t really make sense.

Of course very often more expensive gaming chairs are even better but I will show you inexpensive gaming chairs which should be perfect for you to playing a lot of hours! You don’t need to worry that fancy look is only advantage of this type of chairs.

2 Types Of Budget Gaming Chair – Which One You Prefer?

We could stand out two main types of gaming chairs. These are: PC gaming chairs (computer gaming chairs) and Rocker gaming chairs. Some people split Rocker Gaming Chairs on Pedestal Rocker gaming chairs and regular Rocker gaming chairs but I will stay with just two: PC (computer) gaming chairs and Rocker gaming chairs.

Rocker Gaming Chairs

Rocker Gaming Chairs are the best for every console: Playstation, Xbox, Wii, you name it. But if you play on the PC it won't be the best choice.

Rocker Gaming Chairs are the best for every console: Playstation, Xbox, Wii, you name it. But if you play on the PC it won’t be the best choice.

This kind of chairs is perfect for “lazy play”. If you have console with big TV and a lot of space in your room you should consider this type. This type of chairs are usually one-part. As I mentioned before sometimes they have pedestal. Probably if you play on PC it won’t be the best choice. Look at the picture of Rocker gaming chairs, I bet that you saw it before. Usually they are less expensive than PC gaming chairs.

PC Gaming Chairs

This kind of gaming chairs is the best when you play on the PC. Neck and lumbar pillow support your back and ensure proper ergonomic.

This kind of gaming chairs is the best when you play on the PC. Neck and lumbar pillow support your back and ensure proper ergonomic.

Computer Gaming Chairs are perfect for playing on the PC. They have very similar shape to regular office chairs. Their advantage is that you can both play and work on them. Actually a lot of people buy PC gaming chairs for work. Their price is generally higher than Rocker gaming chairs but in my article I will focus only on affordable gaming chairs so no worries, you’re going to find something good for you. At the same time I skipped crappy chairs and in my ranking and my reviews you can expect only the best and the cheapest gaming chairs.

Best Gaming Chairs Under $50

The Best And Cheap Gaming Chairs Under $50

Huh. What I can say you? It’s not easy to find cheap gaming chair under $50. To being honest it’s almost impossible. I researched a lot of websites and Amazon pages and found just two gaming chairs under $50.

If I’d recommend you something: collect some more money and buy more expensive chair than under $50. Really, think about it. You will send on this chair probably about 2-10 hours per day. It’s 60-300 hours in the month. You really want send this time on chair which is just fine?

Anyway if you really want the cheapest gaming chair ever (which is acceptable) below you can find my two types.

1. Crew Furniture 512100 Classic Video Rocker

This is the cheapest gaming chair in my whole ranking. The price is definitely below $50 and it depends on color. It’s rocker gaming chair with hardwood frame.

Crew Furniture gives us 8 colors of the chair. You will find a lot of options like red, black, green, grey and more.

Technical Details:
Item Weight: 11.4 pounds
Product Dimensions: 24 x 16 x 32 inches
Assembled Height: 32 inches
Assembled Length: 24 inches

I’d recommend this chair mostly for younger people. I read in Amazon reviews that this chair was bought mainly for kids by their parents. Weight of the chair is really light – 11.4 pounds, so it’s compact and easy to move. Producer said that this chair is also good for adult and bigger people but in my opinion it’s not. A few people in reviews had the same opinion.

If you play from time to time and sometimes need something comfortable to sit in the front of your TV it’s going to be good and cheap solution for you. But if you send more time on playing, skip this chair and buy something (at least) a little bit more expensive.

  • Cheap
  • Light and easy to move
  • A lot of colors to choose
  • If you send a lot of time in front of TV I’d buy something more expensive.

2. Office More Gaming Chair Race Car Style

My second proposition is chair from Office More. I need to be honest, it’s a little bit over the budget. But trust me and check reviews if you don’t – under $50 you can buy only simple rocker gaming chair like this above or really crappy chair which you will hate.

Office More Racer Car Style chair is simple PC gaming chair and quite good for this price. Everything what you can expect for these money is solid construction and Office More Chair has it. Unfortunately you can’t find there pillows like in more expensive gaming chairs but as I said, for this money it’s still fine.

Technical Details:
Color: Red and black
Material: PU leather, PP armrest, nylon base
Product dimensions: 24.80″W*26.97″D*44.88″-48.82″H
Maximum user weight : 440.92lb
Seat Width: 20.87″
Seat Depth: 18.50″
Seat Height: 18.50″-22.44″
Backrest Height: 26.97″

Design and material of the chair are also really good. Office More give us two colors: red and black. For me black is much better and will look good in every room. Maximum user weight is 440.92lb which is enough for almost everyone.

Chair has almost 4 stars on Amazon and it’s doesn’t happen often when you are looking for cheap gaming chairs under $50. People in reviews wrote that they didn’t expect much but this chair was pleasure surprise for them. Assembling of the chair is also very easy.

  • Solid construction
  • Good also for heavier people
  • Nice design
  • You won’t find nice features like pillows, adjustable armrests etc.

Best Gaming Chairs Under $100

Ranking of the best gaming chairs under $100

Situation with good cheap gaming chairs under $100 is slightly better than with these under $50. But I can’t say it’s awesome. Choice is definitely bigger because in this category you can also include chairs under $100.

I found 3 pretty good gaming chairs under $100 but none of them is rocker gaming chair. If you want good rocker gaming chair you have two options: buy this one above (Crew Furniture) which is not perfect or pay more than $100 and buy something good.

For me the best gaming chair under $100 is Homall gaming chair. When I write it, it’s under $100 but it’s 50% off so I’m not sure if it’s still in your budget when you read this. I hope so. If it’s not you have also other options. Take a look below.

3. Homall Gaming Chair

Homall Executive Swivel Leather Gaming Chair

This is definitely the best gaming chair under $100. If they still have offer which allows you to buy this chair under $100 don’t wait because you won’t find any better. Really.

Homall is quite popular gaming chair company but their prices are much lower than DXRacer or AKRacing chairs. This model is #1 Best Seller on Amazon with over 200 reviews. Most of them are positive and the chair has 4 stars.

You have to choose many colors: blue, red, white, yellow. Some of them have footrest but they are over the $100.

Technical Details:
Colors: blue, red, orange, white, yellow
Sitting height: 17.7-20.9 inch
Backrest dimension: 22.5″X30.5″(LXW)
Load capacity: up to 300 lbs
Item Weight: 57.3 pounds
Product Dimensions: 32.7 x 15.3 x 29.1 inches

Homall Gaming Chair have two pillows. In my opinion it’s really important. I’m also using chair with two pillows for neck and lumbar and for me it was game changer. You don’t need to be worried about proper posture, ergonomic etc. during the play or work because pillows ensure this.

Unfortunately we don’t have adjustable armrests in this chair but you need to remember that’s budget gaming chair under $100 so you can’t expect all.

Still I think it’s the best option for someone who doesn’t has big budget and needs good gaming chair.

  • Really good value for money
  • 2 pillows (for neck and lumbar)
  • A lot of good reviews
  • Not adjustable armrests

4. BestOffice Race Car Style Gaming Chair

BestOffice Race Car Style Gaming Chair

BestOffice Chair is great alternative if you can’t buy Homall Gaming Chair because of the price. Actually it looks pretty similar to Homall Chair but it’s also a little bit simpler.

The chair has two pillows too. This one for lumbar is really wide which can be helpful for bigger people. There is also pillow for neck.

We can buy one of three colors: blue/black, red/black, white/black. Material of the chair is PU Leather and Mesh.

Technical Details:
Color: blue/black, red/black, white/black
Back Rest Height From Seat: 30″, Width: 20.6
Overall Dimension: 26.7″ x 26.3″ x 47″(Highest)
Load capacity: 250 lbs
Seating Area Dimension: 18.5″ x18.5″ (W X D)
Height from ground to Seating Area: 18.11″-21.6″

BestOffice chair has many good reviews on Amazon and average rating even better than Homall Chair. But it’s probably because Homall has more reviews. Usually more reviews = worst average rating.

But chair from BestOffice has something which Homall doesn’t. Its armrests aren’t adjustable but you can move them up and down. This is good option when you often stand up during the day.

Assembling is very easy, people in reviews wrote that it’s only about 20 minutes.

  • Good alternative when you can’t buy Homall chair
  • Cheaper than Homall chair
  • 2 pillows for better ergonomic
  • 3 colors to choose
  • Very high rating on Amazon
  • Some people said that the chair could has more cushion on the base and armrests

5. Essentials Racing Style Gaming Chair

Essentials Racing Style Leather Gaming Chair

Essential Racing Style is last proposition from category best cheap gaming chairs under $100. And to be honest is the worst from all three chairs. At least for me.

Essential chair has really great look, quality material (SofThread Leather) and looks pretty aggressive.

When we look on the chair we can find flip-up arms which are padded with colored mesh. Essential manufacturer tested chair in many tests like tilt test which ensure us that this gaming chair is really solid and durable.

Technical Details:
Color: Black/Green
Height: 48.25 inches
Length: 29.25  inches
Product DImensions: 30 x 26 x 13 inches ; 37 pounds

But I think that shape of the chair is not perfect. You don’t have proper shape or pillow for your neck protection. It’s a little bit better with lumbar because shape of the chair is good in this position. Also you don’t have additional pillows at all. If you can keep proper posture of the body without pillows it may not be problem for you.

I read reviews on Amazon and one guy said that he’s tall and headrest is very good for him so I suppose that maybe if you’re big guy then your neck will be fine on this chair. But for smaller people it could be problematic.

Still this chair has very good reviews on Amazon (average over 4 stars) and almost 200 opinions. If you care more about good design this may be your choice.

  • Awesome design
  • High quality materials
  • Solid and durable
  • No enough neck protection
  • No pillows

Best Gaming Chairs Under $200

Check ranking of the best gaming chairs under $200

And finally we have category in which I can show you something really good. Below you can find 3 best gaming chairs under $200 and every one of them is very, very good.

All 3 chairs are PC gaming chairs. I included them here because below you can find best gaming chairs for console (both gaming chairs for PS4 and gaming chairs for Xbox One). There are only rocker gaming chairs and that’s why I didn’t include them here.

So if you want some cheaper rocker gaming chair for console just scroll down. If you’re fine with computer gaming chairs stay here and check below my best inexpensive gaming chairs under $200.

6. Ficmax Ergonomic Racing Style Gaming Chair

Ficmax Ergonomic Gaming Chair Reviewamazon button

I did review this chair on my blog in my article about best office chairs under $200 but I feel obligated to do it again here. Why? Because this chair is really awesome and suit for both categories.

Ficmax did great job with this chair. It has all features which have the best gaming chairs like DXRacer, AKRacing, Vertagear etc.

Great, ergonomic shape? Yes, sir. Pillows for neck and lumbar? Of course! All with high-quality PU leather which you can easily clean.

You can also move backwards from 90 to 180 degree which is also very nice feature because you can comfortably watch movies on this chair too.

This chair has even something which don’t have more expensive DXRacer or AKRacing chairs: adjustable footrest!

Technical Details:
Overall Height: 50.0″-53.1″
Seat Height: 18.8″-22.0″
Seat Area: 16.5″(w)x22.8″(d)
Item Weight: 55 pounds
Package Dimensions: 34.8 x 26 x 12 inches

You think is all? What if I could tell you that this chair also has massage function? Yeah, really.

And people in Amazon reviews wrote that it’s not crappy massage without any power. It’s pretty strong and useful if you have lumbar pains. Massage is in lumbar part and it works with USB. So awesome.

Ficmax also gives us 9 colors! Including colors like red, black, white and more.

Probably I don’t need to say that this chair has adjustable armrests (of course it has if it has even massage, lol).

Actually only one thing which could be problematic is that unlike AKRacing or DXRacer this chair has only one size. But you can still use lumbar and neck pillow (and other functions) to adjust it how you want.

Reviews on Amazon are also very good. You can check it by yourself here.

For me it’s the best gaming chair under $200.

  • Quality material
  • Lumbar and neck pillows
  • Massage function
  • A lot of colors to choose
  • Adjustable armrests
  • Footrest
  • Only one size

7. TOPSKY Hight Back Racing Style Gaming Chair

TOPSKY Racing Chair Reviewamazon button

Another great chair under $200 is gaming chair from TOPSKY. Actually I’m own you explain – it’s not under $200 but it’s very close and that’s why I included it in my comparisons.

TOPSKY Racing Chair is very, very solid gaming chair dedicated for bigger people. Recommended weight for this chair is 224 lbs. Even if you look on this chair you will see how massive it looks like.

This is probably the reason why this most expensive chair from my whole ranking – bigger chairs always are more expensive. The same situation you can see in DXRacer chairs where Racing Series is less expensive than King or Tank Series which are recommended for bigger people.

Technical Details:
Material Type: PP + Pu leather + Electroplate Feet + Nylon Wheel
Dimensions (W x D x H): 26.2 x 25.2 x 44.9-48.6inches (66.5 x 64 x 114-123.5 cm)
Seat: (W x D x H) 22.1 x 20.5 x17.9-21.8 inches (56 x 53cm x 45.5 -55.5cm)
Base Diameter: 26.8 inches (68m)
Armrest height: 7.9-8.7 inches (20-22 cm)
Item weight: 44.1 Lbs. (20 kg)
Recommended Weight225Lbs(102kg)
Maximum capacity:300Lbs136kg

TOPSKY gaming chair has adjustable lumbar pillow but doesn’t have neck pillow. But shape of the chair assure that your neck is in good position anyway so don’t worry about that.

Armrests are adjustable (and you can do it by pushing button) which is cool feature. They are also padded (for example DXRacer chairs aren’t).

We have to choose 3 colors: blue/white, black/red and blue/white.

Chair has also footrest, the same as Ficmax chair.

You can also recline your back between 90° to 175° – nice!

Reviews on Amazon are very good. Over 4 stars and very similar to DXRacer chairs ratings. If you are big guy, definitely you should take a look on this model.

  • Very good and solid chair for big people
  • Adjustable armrests
  • 90°-175° recline
  • Footrest
  • Adjustable lumbar pillow
  • It’s chair for bigger people so if you are small person it won’t be good for you

8. Merax Gaming Chair Review

Merax Gaming Chair Reviewamazon button

When I see Merax gaming chair I almost see DXRacer chair. Seriously guys, if you are looking for alternative for DXRacer chair it’s going to be one of your favorites.

I really can’t find many differences to DXRacer chairs. Merax gaming chair has two pillows, both for neck and lumbar support. Adjustable armrest which are not padded (the same as DXRacer). Even design is very similar.

People in reviews really love this chair and say it’s fantastic and beyond their expectation. Even if you look on the rating, you know that you look on great and cheap gaming chair.

Technical Details:
Item Weight: 50 pounds
Product Dimensions: 28 x 28 x 53 inches
Recommended weight: Up to 250 lbs

If I’d compare it to DXRacer it could be something like DXRacer Racing Series. So it’s perfect for average people. Merax said this chair is up to 250 lbs weight.

Quality of material is also very good. Shape is ergonomic and we have to choose 2 colors: blue/black and green/black. If you are looking for something similar to DXRacer but cheaper definitely consider this chair.

  • Great and cheaper alternative to DXRacer chair
  • 2 pillows for neck and back
  • Adjustable armrests
  • Very high rating on Amazon (click here to check)
  • Good for average people but not for big guys

Cheap Gaming Chair for PC

The best PC gaming chairs

At first you need to ask yourself what you consider as CHEAP gaming chair for PC. I assume that you mean chairs under $200 or even budget chairs under $100.

DXRacer and AKRacing chairs are over $200 so I think you may looking for alternative for them. AKRacing, DXRacer and Vertagear are most popular gaming chairs and when people are looking for inexpensive gaming chair often relate to price of these popular chairs. So in my ranking I included only cheaper chairs than AKRacing, Vertagear and DXRacer. If you want something more expensive read my article AKRacing vs DXRacer vs Vertagear vs Arozzi about most popular PC gaming chairs.

Above I divided cheap gaming chairs for a few categories: affordable gaming chairs under $200, budget gaming chairs under $100 and even the cheapest gaming chairs – under $50.

If you don’t want to check all of these chairs I’ll quickly tell you which one’s you should consider. Below are my top 3 cheap gaming chairs.

  1. Homall Racing Style Gaming Chair
    Very good PC gaming chair under $100. It has both neck and lumbar pillow. Click here to read full review above.

Cheap Gaming Chairs for PS4

Best cheap gaming chairs for Playstation 4

Finally it’s time for rocker gaming chairs. What it means? This mean that now you will see cheap gaming chairs for PS4 but also for Xbox One.

Rocker Gaming Chairs are just gaming chairs for consoles. They are both for PS4 and Xbox One. You can feel free to buy one of Xbox One Gaming chairs if you have PS4 and the opposite – when you have PS4 you can buy gaming chair from my list below where I describe gaming chairs for Xbox One.

So why I actually divided it to two categories? Because people think that there are chairs only for PS4 or only for Xbox One and in most cases it’s not true. I want to highlight it. This is only my division. If you have big room with enough space to place there rocker gaming chair you can choose both PS4 gaming chair and XBox One gaming chair, whatever console you have.

9. Cohesion XP 2.1 Gaming Chair with Audio

Cohesion XP 2.1 Reviewamazon button

This is my first and the cheapest gaming chair for PS4. It’s most budget chair for consoles from my ranking and I’d really recommend it only for people who want something really cheap.

Rocker Gaming Chairs (also these one’s for PS4) have usually audio speakers and this model also has it. 2.1 speakers have option to control volume plus you can plug your own headphones.

Technical Details:
Item Dimensions: 18.3 x 25.7 x 16.6 in
Shipping Weight: 18.6 pounds

Big advantage of this chair is to me that you can easily store it thanks to folding it up. So if you don’t have big room, after the game you can fold it up and close in your wardrobe. Nice.

I checked people reviews on Amazon and speakers are not really good according to them. But really, what you can expect for that cheap gaming chair?

Chair is also very light so younger and weaker people won’t have problems with move it. Good option for people with small budget. This chair is mostly buy by parents for their kids. So if you are dad who is looking for gift for his son, yeah – definitely consider buy of this chair. But if you are older and bigger person skip to next models.

  • Easy to move and fold up
  • 2.1 speakers
  • You can plug in your own headphones
  • It’s not solid, big gaming chair. Rather option for younger and smaller people with thin budget

10. X Rocker 5172601 Surge Bluetooth 2.1 Sound Gaming Chair

X Rocker 5172601 Gaming Chair Reviewamazon button

Next console gaming chair good for PS4 is much better. It’s chair from popular company – X Rocker. I suppose that they were first (or one of the firsts companies) which have produced this kind of chairs. Even name of these type of chairs – “rockers gaming chairs” says enough.

X Rocker 5172601 is very popular rocker chair with ergonomic shape and backrest. This model comparing to previous Cohesion chair is for adults too.

Cheap DXRacer Gaming Chair – What Is Good Alternative?

Alternative Chairs For DXRacer but Cheaper

A lot of people asking about good alternative for DXRacer chairs. Probably you are looking for something similar to DXRacer because it’s most popular company of the gaming chairs.

I didn’t really hear that someone is looking for something similar to for example AKRacing or Vertagear chairs. The question is always about DXRacer.

DXRacer chairs price range is $250-$300 or even more for special editions or chairs with better parts and for bigger people. This is the price which a lot of people don’t want to pay. And I understand that. Personally I really like DXRacer chairs but if you want cheaper alternative it’s possible to find something good.

Below I review 2 cheaper alternative for DXRacer chairs. I also reminded about one of the chairs from the above section which also fits this category. Enjoy!

15. GTRacing Chair Review

GTRacing Chair Reviewamazon button

Sometimes when I review gaming chairs I really think that most of them are produced by one company. It’s the same situation when I see GTRacing chair.

If you look on the GTRacing Ergonomic chair you may think it’s DXRacer chair. Especially red and blue version. On the first look you can think it’s the same as DXRacer chair. Actually a lot of people say that comfort is very similar.

Great, ergonomic shape, two pillows (for neck and lumbar) ensure that you will enjoy your long hours gaming session. You can also adjust backrest with 90°-170°.

Technical Details:
Dimensions: 26.5″(L) x 22.5″(W) x 47.5″-52″(H)
Maximum weight capacity: 330 pounds
Colors: Red/Black, Blue/Black, GT-000/Black, Black/White, Blue/Yellow/Black
Warranty: 1 year

Armrests are also adjustable, just like in DXRacer chairs. I could describe this chair more and more but if you are reading this you probably know DXRacer chairs and you want to hear what is different in GTRacer chair than DXRacer, right?

Of course it is quality of materials. I don’t think this chair is the same as DXRacer but also it’s not much worst. But if you want to buy chair about ~$100-200 cheaper than DXRacer you must expect that some elements may be lower-quality.

For example some parts of this chair are have plastic corners. You can’t see this in DXRacer. Also amount of cushion on the seat is smaller than in DXRacer. These are little details which makes the difference.

But my overall opinion about this chair is still very good. It’s nice, cheap alternative for more expensive DXRacer. If your budget is limited and you need the new chair right now feel free to choose this chair, you shouldn’t be disappointed.

  • Looks almost exactly like DXRacer (even logo!)
  • Very good reviews of people
  • Really cheap price if you compare it to DXRacer
  • Quality is a little bit worst than DXRacer

16. Merax Racing Chair Review

Merax Racing Office Chair Green and Black PU Leatheramazon button

I mentioned before about Merax chairs (and I will in the next review). This company designed couple of cheap and good gaming chairs and Merax Racing is one of them.

It’s solid gaming chairs for people up to 225 lbs. It also have racing design like DXRacer and two pillows but the shape is a little bit different.

Also armrests are quite different than DXRacer because they are padded. You actually can move them but not really much what could be problem for some people.

Technical Details:
Seat dimension: 22.4’’W x 21.2’’D
Back dimension: 22.8’’W x 32.6’’
Sitting Height: 18.3’’-22.2’’H
Overall Height: 46.4’’-50.3’’H
Weight capacity: 225 lbs 

The Merax Racing chair have also comfortable footrest (unlike DXRacer) which actually can be advantage.

If you like DXRacer chairs this chair could be good alternative but personally I don’t really like design of this chair. For me it’s a little bit too “heavy”. But reviews of people are very good and this chair really is similar to DXRacer and that’s why I decided to put it in my comparison.

  • Comfortable footrest
  • Solid gaming chair
  • Two pillows
  • Arm rests don’t move too much
  • Quality of cushion were not good enough for a few people

Ewin Flash XL Review – Best Gaming Chair For Big Guys?

Last time when I was looking for good alternative for DXRacer I compared it to cheaper Merax gaming chair. I mentioned there that Merax is good replacement for smaller DXRacer chairs like Racing or F-Series but it’s not the best choice for bigger people.

So what if you need something bigger and more comfortable for taller gamers?

I found great solution and that’s why I decided to review EwinRacing Flash XL Series – perfect choice for guys who need really solid and big gaming chair.

Ewin Flash XL Series – Who Should Consider Buying This Chair?

EwinRacing have in their offer many different types of chairs but in this article I will focus only on the biggest one – Flash XL Series (also known as Flash Series Plus).

This chair is great choice for heavier people. EwinRacing say on their official website that if you are under 551.2 lbs (250kg) and 5’3″ – 6’7″ (160-200 cm) Flash XL Series is the best option for you.

Who else should consider Ewin Flash XL Series? People who absolutely love maximum comfort. Why? Keep reading!

Maximum Comfort – That’s What You Can Expect!

image of ewin chair flash xl series review

Quality of every good gaming and office chair depends on a lot of things but most important is definitely comfort of sitting. What cause that sitting is nice? Foam!

And that’s why Ewin Flash XL is so special. Foam density of this chair is 60kg/m3! Yep, you see it right.

Even the biggest DXRacer Tank Series has smaller density of foam. I think it speaks for itself.

Design, Material And Color – As Good As Other Brands?

Let’s be honest – gaming chairs from many brands are very similar. But what distinguishes the best ones? Details and quality of material.

And in this category another point for Ewin XL Series.

ewin flash xl red color

I checked reviews of the chair and people really love the quality (you can read it here). Stitching is perfect and all details are top-notch.

image of stitching ewin flash xl

Ewin Racing offer us a few colors of the chair: black, red, pink, blue and grey. In some versions main color is black, in some of them different color. It’s fine and enough to choose.

durable fiber leather - feature of Ewin Flash XL Series

Quality leather – and you know it is a top notch gaming chair

Material of the XL Series is fiber leather. Sometimes it could be a problem when you work in some hot place but Ewin say that it’s super durable, anti-friction and antioxidant so probably in this case it shouldn’t be a problem. Why not? Read more and check the cold cure forming sponge feature!

Cool Features Of Ewin XL Series – What You Can Expect?

The Cold Cure Forming Sponge

This is the feature I like the most. In the previous section I wrote about the leather on the back of this chair. On the seat we have this special cold cure forming sponge.

image of cold cure forming sponge

Thanks to that sweat should not be problem even when we work in a hot office. Very smart and cool thing!

4D Adjustable Armrests

adjustable arm rests of ewin chair


It’s a common feature in more expensive chairs but for me very important. I tried chairs without 4D armrests and definitely I missed this feature. Especially when you like keep your keyboard and mouse at the distance from each other like me – then 4D arms help a lot.

Pillows For Lumbar And Neck

image of neck pillow of ewin flash xl chair

Every good gaming chair should have these two pillows. Personally I love them and thanks to them I can work and play longer because my neck is fully supported. So it’s important that Ewin XL Series has it too.

Adjustable Back

image of adjustable back of ewin xl

In the era of YouTube when people prefer to watch than read adjustable back is pretty important. When you need a moment of chill and rest you can just tilt your back (85-155 Degrees) and comfortably watch on your screen anything you want.

Quality Base

image of solid base of ewin xl series

As I mentioned at the beginning EwinRacing Flash XL Series is for bigger people and that’s why solid base is so important. In this case we have 5-star aluminum base which is definitely enough for almost every person.

What Other People Think? Check Ewin Flash XL Reviews

I always do research and check what people think about specific chair. There was no exception in this case.

Ewin is quite young gaming chair company when we compare it to for example DXRacer. That’s why you can’t expect as many reviews as in DXRacer case when you check Amazon. But..

If you read reviews of Ewin Flash XL (for example here) you know that they did good job. I haven’t found one bad review. Only 5-stars reviews and maybe one or two 4-stars which is really awesome.

People love ergonomic shape of the chair, quality materials and top-notch details.

Pros & Cons

  • Top-notch quality of materials and design
  • Perfect for bigger people who have limited amount of products to choose
  • The Cold Cure Forming Sponge – great feature when you work in hot place
  • Price is high but chair for bigger people are more expensive and you need to know it. DXRacer Tank is even more expensive

Final Word

EwinRacing Flash XL is perfect choice for people who play or work a lot and need great, ergonomic chair. This is also one of the best picks for heavier and taller people. They need different solution and product from EwinRacing is definitely good option for them.

Best XRocker Video Game Chairs – My Top 4 Picks

X Rocker 51396 Pro Series with Pedestal Review

Image of X Rocker 51396 Pro Seriesamazon button

This is first game chair in my ranking. And there’s reason why I’ve chosen this specific model. It’s probably most popular (and maybe even one of first) gaming chair from X Rocker.

X Rocker sold thousands of this chair and it has over 1,300 reviews on Amazon, wow!

Overall rating is almost 4 which is fine if you see how many people reviewed X Rocker 51396. Always more people = a little bit lower rate of the product.

Image of X Rocker 51396 Speakers

Ok, back to the chair – Why this model is worth of your attention? Af first if you even see the photo you can bet that’s very comfortable gaming chair. And it really is. People love this chair because of comfort it delivers. What is also important the chair is good for taller people which is not “must” in every game chair.

Technical details:
Item Dimensions: 23 x 28.5 x 23.5 in
Material Type: Vinyl
Color: Black
Sound: Subwoofer and 2.1 speakers

Similar to many (or almost all) X Rocker video gaming chairs this model has two speakers 2.1 with subwoofer. In some video game chairs people complain about the quality of the sound. But this model according to many reviews is much, much better. Deep bass and rich sound – this is what you can expect during your gaming sessions.

X Rocker 51396 offers us built-in radio wireless receiver and bluetooth transmitter so you can be sure that speakers in the chair won’t be useless.

Hopefully there is also option to connect PS4 to this chair. Actually you can connect every possible console like Xbox One or Wii as long as your TV has component slots. Wireless connection also works with console from Microsoft.

Image of ars of xrocker video game chair - 51396

Some people may don’t like vinyl material of the chair. Actually for me it’s also a small disadvantage. But overall design of the chair is pretty cool anyway.

X Rocker 51396 video gamer chair has also pedestal. Thank to it you can tilt and swivel on the chair without necessity of moving chair when you want to change your position.

What is interesting you can connect this chair to other X Rocker video game chairs! So if your friend or brother has similar chair you can play together during multi-player games with one audio source.

X Rocker 51259 Review

Review of X Rocker Video Game Chair 51259amazon button

X Rocker 51259 is another video game chair for adults from X Rocker. This model may looks similar to the previous one but it has a few differences.

At first this X Rocker chair doesn’t have pedestal. But in my opinion it’s not necessary feature and to being honest I don’t really like pedestals.

Material of this chair is for me much better than X Rocker 51396. Vinyl material looks much better and it’s easy to clean. Design of the chair is more minimalistic and even logo has no color which for me is advantage.

Padded headrest and gun-stock arms ensure comfortable play in video games for long hours. Arms have also ability to fold which could be useful for someone who needs easy storage of the chair.

X Rocker 51259 has 4 (!) speakers and subwoofer with Ace Bayou’s innovative AFM Technology. This kind of sound system will provide you the best experiences during your gaming sessions.  Why? Keep reading.

Technical details:
Item Dimensions: 22.05 x 29.13 x 20.87 in
Material type: Padded vinyl with durable wood and metal frame covered
Color: Black
Sound: Speakers 4.1 with subwoofer which use Ace Bayou’s innovative AFM Technology

This video gaming chair has also additional vibration motors which is synchronized with bass. Imagine how cool is gaming with that kind of features!

As every X Rocker chair you can also connect this one to every console. You can use to it bluetooth or simple input/output jacks. What is also very important you don’t need remote to change your sounds volume. On the right side of the chair you will find control panel to volume up or down bass and volume.

So comparing to previous chair this one is for people who care more about good gaming experience with good sound, not only comfort. Yes, previous chair had good reviews of sound system but X Rocker 51259 is even better. And as I mentioned looks better (at least for me).

X Rocker 51259 video game chair similar to the previous chair has a lot of reviews on Amazon – over 600 and also very high rate (when I was checking it was over 4.1). Feel free to check these reviews here.

  • Great sound (4.1 speakers and subwoofer with innovative technology)
  • Vibration synchronized with bass
  • Nice, minimalistic design which should looks good in every room
  • No pedestal

X Rocker 5172601 Review

review of xrocker video gaming chair 5172601amazon button

Next video game chair is X Rocker 5172601. It’s not as popular as the first two but it’s probably because this model is newer.

What stand out this X Rocker gaming chair? Two things:

  1. Quality of materials. You can even say that when you look on the photo. It’s not vinyl anymore but it’s quality fabric which looks much better. Red lines on the edges add cool and sharp character.
  2. You can fold this chair. It’s crucial thing for many people. Not every have big living room where chair could stand all the time. A lot of people prefer to put their gaming chair in the closet. If you are one of them this video game chair is for you. No pedestal, possibility of folding and after the gaming session your room is clean and empty again, cool.

buttons of x rocker 5172601 chair

In this model we have only 2.1 speakers but subwoofer has Ace Bayou’s innovative Audio Force Modulation Technology. As always you can connect the sound system to your iPod, iPhone, PS4, Xbox One or actually whatever device you want.

Technical details:
Item dimensions: 32.28 x 36.81 x 20.89 in
Material type: Fabric
Sound: 2.1 speakers with subwoofer with Audio Force Modulation Technology
Color: Black

Again you can control your sound experience because of volume control which you will find on the right side of the chair. This is cool because when you sit on this chair I can bet that you won’t move your.. bottom from it 😉

Frame of the chair is really heavy and solid. Because of that it’s hard to move the chair from one place to another. But actually it’s kind of advantage – you know that this chair is solid and will endure every weight.

  • You can fold the chair and put in your closet
  • Great design with cool red lines in racing style
  • Very good quality of sound
  • Good gaming chair for adults and younger people
  • No armrests
  • This video gaming chair is for adults and it’s good for taller people even 6’2″. So you can buy it for both your son and.. for you.

X Rocker 5142201 Review

Review of X Rocker Video Gaming Chair 5142201amazon button

X Rocker 5142201 is chair which on the first look could be similar to PC gaming chairs. But I think (or even I’m sure) that place of this chair is in this category.

Design of X Rocker 5142201 is very minimalistic. No color lines, no logos, looks almost like regular office chair. This is also the cheapest video game chair from my article.

The chair has two 2.1 speakers and subwoofer with Audio Force Modulation Technology. Speakers are hidden in the headrest which could be advantage for people who like simply design.

Technical details:
Item Dimensions: 22 x 27.5 x 21 in
Item Weight: 46 lbs
Material Type: Polyester Fabric
Color: Black
Pedestal: Yes

You can connect this chair to every console, iPad, iPod or any other device – exactly the same as previous chairs.

X Rocker 5142201 has also pedestal with tilt and swivel capabilities and arm rests which you can fold.

X Rocker Game Chair 5142201 Arms

There’s also reason why this chair is cheaper than the previous one’s. A few people who have used this chair complained about material and padding. For some people it’s not enough comfortable. Of course there’s a lot of buyers who love this chair and its comfort but you need to know that it’s probably not as comfortable as previous X Rocker game chairs from my ranking.

This chair could be good for short gaming session, quick rest with your favorite show on the TV but if you want to play a lot of hours without breaks it could be hard because of the padding which I mentioned before. So it’s good chair but for not for demanding gamers.

Despite the padding issue chair has very good reviews on Amazon. About 4.0 stars and almost 200 reviews so maybe it isn’t that but as some people wrote, right? If you want to check these reviews click here.

  • The cheapest gaming chair from the ranking
  • It has pedestal
  • Minimalistic design
  • All necessary features like wireless connection, speakers with subwoofer, volume control
  • Quality of material
  • Chair doesn’t have too much padding

Best Video Gaming Chairs for PC – My Top 4 Picks

DXRacer King Series Review

dxracer king series - good video game chair for PCamazon button

Ok, now it’s time to review a few video gaming chairs which will be better for your PC or if you play at the desk.

First chair which I picked to review from this category is DXRacer King Series. DXRacer is probably most popular gaming chair company and they are on the market long time.

They have a lot of different models like DXRacer F-Series, DXRacer Racing Series or Tank but I decided to review just one – King Series. Why just this one?

Main difference between all DXRacer models is height & weight of user. King Series heigh limit is 6’2″ / 1.88 m. Because of that this video game chair has to be more solid than other models for lighter and smaller people. And also because of that the parts of the chair are better. So that’s why my choice was King Series.

Technical details:
Net Weight (Approximate) :    66.14 lb / 30kg
Gross Weight :    77.16 lb / 35kg
Weight Capacity :    <300 lbs / 136.1 kg
Height Limit :    <6’2″ / 1.88 m
Recommended Weight :    275 lbs / 124.74 kg
Recommened Height :    5’9″ / 1.75 m – 6’2″ / 1.88 m
BMI of Recommended User :    <30

90° 4D Arms
Multi-functional Mechanism
Strong Aluminium Base
Carbon Look Vinyl and PU cover
3″ PU Casters

So what is special in DXRacer chair? At first you can be sure that chairs from this company are top on the gaming chairs market. Did you ever open something from Apple? I bet you did. Even opening the box is cool because of small details. All looks perfect.

Similar is with DXRacer. All details are top-notch.

What exactly offer DXRacer King Series? Profiled, ergonomic shape with two pillows for lumbar and neck. Personally I use DXRacer chair and I can tell that these two pillows are my life-saver. I always had problems with neck pain but pillow for neck helped me a lot.

Adjustable armrest are also cool because if you have high desk like me you can adjust your arm rests just like you need.

Quality of materials and design of DXRacer King is very good too. Deep foam ensure you enough comfort during the game.

DXRacer offer us 5 color versions of the chair. But in the offer they also have special editions with different designs.

I could write more about this chair but I did it in my other article on the blog. So if you want to read more about DXRacer chair click here and read my full review.

  • Top-notch from video gaming chairs for PC
  • Quality, quality, quality
  • Adjustable armrests
  • 2 pillows for neck and lumbar
  • Price of DXRacer King is quite high but other models for smaller people are less expensive

AKRacing AK-7002 Review

AKRacing AK-7002 is one of the best chairs for video gamesamazon button

AKRacing is second after DXRacer biggest video game chair company on the market. How they look like when we compare them to DXRacer?

Actually pretty good. I could even say that your choice could be very hard if you’d need to decide AKRacing vs DXRacer.

AKRacing chair also has two pillows, one for neck support and one for lumbar support.

Model which I already review – AK-7002 may has a little less deep foam on the seat but it all depends on model. I can bet that other, more expensive models have deeper foam.

What I really like in AKRacing 7002 is design. Black color with carbon add-ons looks fabulous.

Similar to DXRacer, AKRacing also has adjustable armrests but in contrast to DXRacer King Series, AKRacing doesn’t have 90° 4D Arms.

Backrest of the chair is adjustable. You could move 90-180 degrees. It’s nice when you want to lay back and rest for a while.

Technical details:
Weight: 25 kg
Foam Density: 55 kg/m³ (seat) 50 kg/m³ (back)
Armrest Pad Size: 26*9*2.5cm
Caster Size: 65mm*53mm
Package Size: 88x68x38cm
Weight Capacity: 150kg
Net Weight: 25kg
Gross Weight: 28kg
Colors: Black, Black/White

Solid base, quality materials and awesome design – this is what you can expect from AKRacing AK-7002.

AKRacing AK-7002 offer us two version of colors – black with carbon (aaawesoome!) and white.

Weight limit of the chair is 396 lbs which should be enough for most users.

I checked reviews of this chair and I could tell you that this game chair won’t be good for anyone. That’s why companies of the gaming chairs like DXRacer and AKRacing designed and they are selling such many different models. If you have wide hip seat could be too narrow for you. That’s also why I reviewed this specific model – above DXRacer chair is rather for bigger people – this AKRacing chair is for smaller.

If you want to check my full review of AKRacing AK-7002 click here.

  • Awesome design
  • Pillow for neck and lumbar
  • Adjustable armrests
  • Quality of design and material
  • Not good for taller people
  • Only two colors to choose

Cougar Armor Gaming Chair Review

image of cougar armor gaming chair review

Cougar is a  gaming company which produce stuff for gamers. In their offer you can find things like keyboards, mouse pads, computer parts and gaming chairs.

They released Cougar Armor Gaming Chair which is quite interesting choice if you are looking for good chair for your video gaming session.

Video game chair from Cougar is covered in breathable PVC leather with black and orange color. I must say that overall look of the chair is really, really good.

Similar to DXRacer and AKRacing Cougar video gaming chair has two pillows – for neck and lumbar support.

Technical details:
Weight Capacity: 120kg (264.55 lb)
Product Weight: 21kg (46.30 lb)

The chair has also regular features of gaming chairs like 180 degrees reclining, adjustable arm rests and height adjustments. What is cool Cougar chair has 3D adjustable armrests. This feature has only a few chairs from DXRacer and AKRacing so it’s definitely big advantage of Cougar chair.

For this moment Cougar has very good rates on Amazon. Actually I can’t even find bad word about this chair. There’s no many reviews but if you will find some, definitely the good one’s. If you want to check reviews on Amazon click here to read.

Because of cheaper price you have to expect that there are some disadvantages. The main is padding of the backrest which is not as deep and comfortable as in other video gaming chairs.

This chair is definitely good and cheap alternative for chairs like DXRacer or AKRacing. But again – it’s rather for smaller people than taller. Cougar don’t tell exact recommended height but it seems that chair is for people about 180 cm (5,8 ft).

  • Cheaper alternative
  • Great colors
  • 3D adjustable armrests
  • Good material
  • Not good for bigger gamers
  • Just one color
  • Backrest padding is not deep enough

Merax Racing Style Review

I reviewed Merax game chair before in my comparison Merax vs DXRacer chair but this time I want to show you different video gaming chair from Merax – Racing Style.

Merax Racing Style suit to this ranking because it could be used both for gaming at the desk but also in the front of the TV because of the footrest and reclining feature.

This Merax chair has included neck support and pillow for lumbar which is good when you play in front of the desk.

Because of the height of the chair it’s also good for big guys! Pretty nice when you see how much costs similar chairs which are designed for bigger people (Merax Racing Style is really cheap – click here to check).

Technical details:

Seat height: 17 to 20.5 inches
Base: 29W inches
Actual weight: 37.48 pounds
Shipping weight: 56 pounds
Package dimensions: 48L x 26W x 10H

This video game chair is available in a few colors. Main color of the chair is black and you can choose color of the add-ons: blue, grey, green, orange, red and yellow.

Chair is covered with high quality PU which makes this product attractive in terms of look.

Merax Racing Chair has very good rates on Amazon – when I checked it was over 4.2 which is very good rating. Reviews from over 100 people what makes this rating even more valuable.

A lot of people like lumbar pillow of this chair but they are also guys which think that bottom pillow is a little bit firm.

  • Good both for PC and console gaming
  • A few colors to choose
  • Footrest
  • Good price
  • Bottom pillow is a little bit firm

Openwheeler Advanced Racing Seat Review (Bonus)

photo of Openwheeler Advanced Racing Simulator

This is not typical gaming chair and that’s why I placed it here like a bonus.

Openwheeler Racing Seat is something for racing lover. If Need For Speed, Gran Turismo or game like that are your favorite you will love this chair.

In Openwheeler chair you will feet like in the sport car. This is Racing Simulator chair in shape of real sport car.

In this video game chair we won’t find armrests, pillows and features like in normal gaming chair. So what exactly this chair offers us?

Comfortable backrest in ergonomic shape is the basic of every good chair and that’s what we can expect from Openwheeler chair.

Technical details:
Assembled Height: 40.5 inches
Assembled Width: 22 inches
Weight: 55 Pounds
Product Dimensions: 37 x 16 x 16 inches

Also we have legs support and what is the most important – place for steering wheel!

Very important feature of this chair is adjustability. You can relive your back, change position of the seat, place of steering wheel, footrest – everything you want.

Chair for video racing games from Openwheeler have very good reviews on Amazon. When I was checking it was almost 5 (!) stars with over 100 reviews. To being honest I don’t remember chair with that good ratings.

We have to choose 6 colors of the chair: black, red, blue, yellow, orange and green. Everyone will find something for yourself.

  • You can adjust every part of the chair
  • The best chair for racing games
  • Not really useful for different type of games than racing

Merax vs DXRacer Comparison – Is Merax Good Alternative For DXRacer?

Merax gaming chairs becoming to be more and more popular last months.

A lot of people when see their chair and DXRacers think that the only difference between Merax and DXRacer is the price. I can already say, that’s not true.

DXRacer are overpriced? Or maybe Merax is only cheap fake of DXRacer?

Is there make any sense to pay even more than $100 (or more) to buy DXRacer chair instead of Merax?

After my Merax vs DXRacer comparison test you will know what’s the difference between these two chairs… and I don’t only mean the price! 😉

What’s Your Height? The Most Important Thing When You’re Considering Merax And DXRacer

DXRacer designed and they are selling a lot of different models of the gaming chairs.

For example DXRacer Formula Series is for people under 5’10” (178 cm). Backrest and the rest of chair is designed for people in this specific size.

On the other way DXRacer Racing is for bigger guys, up to 6’1″ (185 cm) and King Series up to 6,2″ (188 cm).

They have chairs even for people who are 6’6″ (Tank Series).

So how things looks like with Merax?

Merax have a few chairs but every one of them is different. Some of their chairs have footrest, some doesn’t have adjustable arm rests and to being honest only one chair is very popular and the only one I could recommend to you, it’s Merax Gaming Chair with High Back.

Yea this second girl.. Merax is definitely not for her 😀

In this comparison I focus on this specific Merax chair because there’s no sense to compare different models to DXRacer because only this one could be comparable. Design, shape, materials of this chair are the most similar to DXRacer than any other model.

Ok, let’s back to your height.

If you are up to 6’2″ then you can consider buying Merax over the DXRacer. But if you are over 6’2″ I wouldn’t.

Merax don’t say what is recommended size for people who use their chair. So I checked reviews on Amazon (click here if you want to read it) and 6’2″ is probably final height for users of this chair.  A few people over 6’2″ complained about the size of the backrest. It was too low for them.

You can’t expect that one chair will be good for anyone.

So if you are up to 6’2″ feel free to read the rest of my comparison of DXRacer and Merax but if you’re over this height you probably should consider different chair. I’d recommend this DXRacer Tank Series.

Weight Limit For DXRacer And Merax Chairs

This situation is similar to height case.

If you are over 250 lbs Merax is not for you and try with Tank Series which I mentioned above (or even DXRacer King Series which maximum weight is 200 lbs).

Is Quality of DXRacer Really Much Better Than Merax?

Yes and no. It depends on what you expect.

Merax gaming chair is really quality gaming chair. It really is.

Quality of material in Merax is almost as good as in DXRacer

People love quality of Merax materials which is also easy to clean. Lumbar and neck pillows are comfortable and the chair is looking very nice. A few people had problems assembling of the chair and screws but it’s not the big deal after you will sit on the chair.

DXRacer quality is also very good but I suppose that I don’t have to say it. Even if you open the box with the chair everything looks perfect. When I assembled DXRacer chair it took me about 20 minutes because all elements were perfectly prepared to put together.

Assembling of Merax could be a little bit harder. I don’t had opportunity to assemble Merax chair but I read reviews of people who had small problems. But again, it’s nothing big and you shouldn’t be worried about that. Probably it’s the difference of 10-15 minutes.

If I’d have to make the decision only basing on quality of Merax and DXRacer to being honest I wouldn’t pay more for only that small things. But.. what about the comfort?

Which Chair is More Comfortable?

Because that’s most important, right?

And in this category we could see the real reason why DXRacer is more expensive than Merax.

You are sitting on the seat part. Seat should be the most comfortable part of the chair. And in DXRacer it is. Foam is really soft and deep. Also “wings” of the seat are nicely soft.

Oh yes, now it's comfy!

Oh yes,  now it’s perfect

In Merax? Not necessarily. I don’t say it’s not comfortable chair but a few people complained about it. They said that “wings” of the chair are not really soft and if you have wider hip it could be problem for you. But.. do you have wider hip?

As I said, Merax chair is rather for average people, not these big one’s. If you are quite slim and not heavy Merax should be good for you.

This is also the reason why DXRacer is more expensive. All parts of the chair are perfect and soft.

So if you really care about comfort and details and you have budget for even more comfortable DXRacer chair you should check:

Other Small Differences, They Are Important?

There’s a few small differences between the chairs. Not really important but maybe you will recognize it as useful for you.

Merax chair has back adjustable up to 180°. DXRacer “only” up to 135°. But let’s be honest, who cares about it? 135° is more than enough I think.

A few people complained about arm rests of Merax. They said that should be possibility to get it higher. I tried Merax chair and for me arm rests are fine.

Why You Should Buy DXRacer?Why You Should Buy Merax?
  • More comfortable because of more foam on the seat
  • If you are big guy (over 6’2″ or 250 lbs) DXRacer Tank Series will be perfect for you
  • Assembling is super easy
  • More colors to choose
  • Cheaper than DXRacer
  • Really nice quality for good price
  • It has all most important features of good gaming chair like pillows for lumbar and neck, adjustable arm rests, adjustable backseat

My Conclusion of Merax vs DXRacer Comparison

I think that most important in this choice is your height. If you are over 6’2″ you should choose DXRacer (Tank Series would be the best). Also if you are heavy guy.

But if you are average size and your budget is limited Merax won’t be the worst option for you. Actually it will be quite good gaming chair. Maybe not perfect but definitely comfortable, nice gaming chair and good, cheaper DXRacer alternative. But still before you will buy definitely check Amazon reviews here.

Hope my article with DXRacer vs Merax comparison helped you. Don’t remember to share your thoughts below in comments section!
