Default Christmas Wish - A Gaming Chair

Since Mrs Claus asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told her I wanted a gaming chair, primarily a console gaming chair because they are lower than PC chairs.

I've been researching them for a week now and I can't seem to make a selection. Does anyone here use one and if so, do you have any recommendations? Please don't suggest X Rocker chairs because I know they are shit quality and I don't need speakers in my chair either. I use a kick ass Astro headset and when I'm not using that, I have my home theatre system rockin' for surround sound in the man cave.

Right now the leading candidate is this model from DX Racer. The only thing I don't like about it is the $500 price tag.



Thoughts or suggestions?

Are DX Racer's worth the money?

Do it, you won't be disappointed. I bought a DX Racer about a year or two ago, and its definitely been one of the best gaming purchases I made in awhile. I got the OH/FE08/NE model since I use it for PC gaming too, but the quality is superb and I guarantee you'll fall asleep in at some point. Those pillows are nice

No problem. I was skeptical at first as well cause of the price tag (mine was 350). BTW convinced me though and I'm happy he did.

The great thing about the DXRacer is the lifetime warranty on the entire frame of the chair, so it's guaranteed that it will hold strong for as long as you have it. I've had mine for about two years now, and it still looks brand new. It does suck to take the large plunge on the price, but it's well worth anything you pay in exchange for the great quality.
