Please make a chair where the arm rests can be pushed back further so I can still get arm support and sit closer to the desk 🙂

Gaming chairs are notorious for making chiropractors rich. Whatever the results of the survey show, i hope a big brand starts the trend of putting ergonomics before looks, making chairs that are actually worthy of 24 hour chair rating (aka long hours sitting on them without strain).

My SL one has been alright, had it for over a year and only complaint is the seat is a little hard... which is strange as I had one before that and didnt have this issue 😛

Fabric over hot leather/pleather 😄

pleather lasts for a few months and turns armrests into arm grinders 😛 

Comfort really depends on your frame. I'm tall and wide.. any gaming chair is sure to give me back pain in 15 minutes. friends that would head bump my chest trying to aim at my forehead are fine gamind and working all day in one of those.

ALL gaming chairs regardless of brand use the same metal, It's called "pig metal", A low quality steel that used to be thrown away during the steel making process.

I'd personally advise anyone to go to a proper office furniture store and have a look at comparatively priced chairs that are built out of much better materials, Made for sitting on for many hours and not shaped like a silly race chair.

I had a T2 Road Warrior snap on me and I'm way below the weight limit, Took it to my dad who used to work with metal daily and the first words out of his mouth were "that's pig metal, Hope you didn't pay too much for it".

Gaming chairs are a con.

Oh I did. Its a good built chair quality wise but its not like sitting in those high dollar chairs that look like something pulled out of the future 😃

I'd like to see a new chair design.  I have a T1 Race, I like it but it has serious issues with hooking any nearby cables.  I'd like to see a new model with the following changes:

  • Armrests: Replace the current T shaped armrests with hinged armrests mounted on sliding brackets on the sides of the backrest - the sliding bracket for vertical adjustment and the hinge for lowering the armrests for use, or raising them back up when not desired.  I have an office chair with this feature next to me so I know it's doable.  I think compared to that chair, It'd be nice if the arms were more flush with the backrest when raised, and maybe if they didn't contribute as much to the overall width of the chair.
  • Reclining lever: replace this with a large diameter knob.
  • Seat height adjustment lever: move this inward about 5 inches.

Other features unrelated to the cord-hooking issue that I'd like:

  • Optional separate but matching footrests with adjustable height.
  • A larger neck pillow, or maybe just a larger third pillow meant for the head.

I recently bought the JUMMICO Gaming Recliner Chair. It is available at https://www.reclinerland.com/best-gaming-recliner/. I've spend lots of time searching for a right gaming chair. To help in a search, there is a variety of ergonomically designed gaming chairs. I used to have awful back pain while playing. This is why I decided to make a difference. I've had this chair for about a month. I haven't had any back discomfort since that.
