We’ve looked at many gaming chairs and today we’re excited to be looking at one of the most famous brands on the market, DXRacer. Matt got the chance to look at a new entry in the company’s Racing line. Retailing for $399, we dug in for a closer look.

    I would have loved a weight mention here. It's less than 200 lbs if you're curious.

    yeah iirc you need a fairly baseline weight for most of the chairs, but i also seem to remeber that they make a heavy duty one.. At least they used to.

    This have been a good conversation

    Hey look guys, another race chair with 2 pillows (lumbar and neck support son).
    It's totally different than the others. We swear.

    Pros: It's a Racing Chair
    Cons: Not enough red. No mag wheels. No turbo boost.

    Nobody buys these for any reason than to look cool.I cannot remember the last streamer i have seen sitting in one properly.
    So over pay for a chair to look cool,that is where you weigh in common sense or not.

    Unless gel infused memory foam,it is just foam.

    What i have never found out is where these parts are actually made,i assume over seas since they have operations over seas.So like a 50 dollar chair selling for with tax included around 450 bucks,wowsers.

    Most people sit leaning forward,the most used part of the chair is seat and arms,imo the arms are first to wear.The arms look VERY cheap ,definitely much cheaper than my 150 dollar chair which i am very happy with the arm rests.As to the seat,it looks durable but still foam is foam,it is the surface that often cracks and begins to look shotty.

    There is NO WAY in a short period to test the durability of this product or it's parts,if the seat cracks or arm rest cracks,it looks trashy.

    If the problem is that you're sore from sitting in your current chair too much, getting a different chair won't fix it. Getting up, stretching out, and walking around periodically probably will.

    once again @Wizardry being @Wizardry.......

    Best PC chairs i have ever owned period! also outside of the occasional cable company tech im a very private person and no one really see's them so no i didnt buy either of the two i own just to show off to anyone.....i actually bought my first one because I've been a car enthusiast my entire life and i understand the benefits of a quality racing seat. So i was curious how they compare to one so i took a chance.

    i have one i have had for almost 3 years and outside of a piston replacement which was covered under warranty(they just asked what the issue was and sent me parts right away) it looks just like the day it was bought,im pretty sure the piston issue was due to weight cause the 2nd one i bought i made sure it could hold more wight and was wider and it has been a flawless product to this day!

    The arms are hard plastic and they have 3 buttons to make many adjustments,sure they may not be very comfortable for your arms but they damn sure have no signs of wear or breakage unless your someone who doesn't take care of your stuff.

    I cant speak for the other models but i paid almost 500 for the king series in 2015 and and 600 for the tank series last year.before that i have paid maybe half that on numerous pc chairs that fell apart in months,so for me this chairs are worth every penny.

    about the only thing i would say you have a point about is that they may not be the most comfortable out there but they are durable and that was more important for me.

    (also will mention we never use the lumbar or neck pillows they feel weird to me)

    Well, the frame is metal, so that's good. But $400+? No. These things probably cost $40 to make at the most. And polyurethane treated leather is just crappy leather with plastic on it to disguise the fact that it's crappy leather. Good, non-suede leather is always easy to keep clean, and doesn't need to be coated with petroleum products.

    You're paying for the flash, not the substance. Completely agree with @Wizardry on this one.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

    The best chair you've ever owned doesn't make these racing chairs worth any more of a damn than another chair my friend. If you've ever worked an office gig you should know there are more comfortable chairs than this at the same or better price point PLUS they don't have obnoxious yee haw Nascar trimmings all over them.

    These go fast chairs aren't much different than each other. I don't see the point of continually reviewing each one as if they are. They're obnoxiously colored, they go back some, they go up and down, they have 2 pillows.

    I have worked in offices my whole life. The company I now work at gave me a good size expense account and I purchased this chair. Its amazingly comfortable and I don't have many of the nagging back and muscle issues I've had in the past. This chair is worth it to me since I am sitting most of my 8-10 hour work days and I haven't had any issues. I can easily recommend this chair as I have let others use it when I am off and taken vacation time. Both colleagues that have tried this chair both have one for themselves. To me this speaks volumes about the chair's viability as its not only my own opinion but others in the same company who tried it and came to the same conclusion through personal experience.

    They have a chair that is rated up to 400 lbs.
