I am going to try this; done the same as you a few weeks ago, so annoying :x It always happens though
#6
i posted this and also paid £59.99. I thought it was a good deal then..!!


the best thing i've bought for long time, even at £59 :thumbsup:
#7
Anyone know if this chair is compatible with the Wii???
#8
Probably just found the answer myself, but it would appear I can return the item within 30 days for a full refund providing I have the receipt and the goods are undamaged and in their orignal packaging - which of course they are.

Oh and I have now reserved one at £45.

BONUS!
#9
My son has just got this chair, unfortunatley at the more expensive price. It is brilliant, like having surround sound. I have had to go and check a few times as he has been watching a film and i have heard glass smash but it is just the film he is watching. :)
#10
Is It Compactable As I Need To Fold It Away As Our Living Room Is Tiny
#11
Me too!! bought at £59.99! when it was £99 in Currys!
Now do you have to lump it back or just take the receipt to get the £15 diff back?
#12
Remove pin and undo velcro, so it folds on itself to form a square-ish block.
#13
#14
these things any good?

#16

its very comfortable and the speaker system is very loud and very clear.

trust me , buy one
#17
Thanks to the OP. Just reserved one for my lad. He'll be very happy with it :)
#18
[SIZE="4"]Anyone got one for the Wii? [/SIZE]

[SIZE="4"]Tempting [/SIZE] :)

Edit: Or DS? :)
#19
Hi has anyone used this with the PS3 do i need any other cables and does it connect easy into the ps3
#20
the input to the chair is a normal , small stero jack. same as headphone connector.

it also comes with a couple of adaptors, to convert most leads if needed.
#21
LOL, I saw one of these in PC World the other day (No i don't shop there i was after a usb cable quickly but since the cheapest one was £15 I promptly left!!!!)

Anyway, these things are a load of tat.

The speakers are absolute RUBBISH - Worse than those POS ones you get in cars as standard in the 80s (hard plastic mesh etc...says it all really), tinny, scratchy - awful.

They're a fad, if you think this is the latest cool thing, I'd suggest building yourself a time machine and spinning back to 1999, when this sort of thing was "the future"....also grab a VR headset from 1992 to keep you company also :)

I don't mean to be rude but to the poster who said these feel like "surround" sound....Well I'd have to ask if you've heard surround sound or know what it is, hearing a 2 speakers placed a couple of inches behind your head with noise coming out *isn't* surround sound...not in the cinematic sense with which your post implies anyway :) (no offense, but I'd be willing to go so far as to say you might drop dead in an orgasmic heap if you heard real 5.1 on a good setup if you can possibly consider this "surround"...

This sort of **** always gets voted hot - and purely because people think "wow its so new and special"....they ain't even used it before!!!!

Well I use mine at home not in a shop im running out of quickly and think its fantastic for playing games! Just reserved another at this bargain price, cheers op!!:thumbsup:
#23
everybody is allowed an opinion.....

and I don't think they are tat at all and the sound may no be surround sound as it says, but its very good.

the guy that put the negative comment, has just looked at it, and made an opinion without actually listening to it...!!!
#24
If you really want to splash out £45 on what is a gimick that your going to use a couple of times then go for it.


My mate has one of these, after trying it I think its (IMO) a waste of money. Speaker quality is poor, and it hardly adds to any immersion. Anyone remember the "Pyramat" speaker system? Honestly, I would class this in the same league as that - and that was awful.

If you don't have seperate speakers other than your TV ones, I would suggest investing the £45 towards some new speakers, just my opinion.
#25
Hi,
I am interested in one of these, must be more comfortable than sitting on the floor, & I dont fancy a bean-bag or camping chair!. not in the least interested in the sound, my telly has sound! I can stash it away when not in use, & the kids will use it, will come in when the family is round for xmas as well. I am not after it cos it the lastest cool thing, but if you know how to build a time machine what are you doing posting tat on here ? muppet! :whistling:
#26
Its a good SEAT for SITTING ON when playing games :thumbsup:

You do realise that once this is plugged in no sound will come from your telly, it will all come from the chair (unless your TV has a seperate sound out port)? I also hope half the people buying this are sure they have the right leads for it (you need to make sure your console or whatever has seperate red and white audio leads). These things admittedly do seem quite nice when you read the blurb, but the practicality and "fun" factor in my opinion is not worth the £45.

:thumbsup:

Excatly!! Not one person on here has mentioned the fact that this is a CHAIR, or what it's like to sit on!! I'm getting one for xmas off my girlfriend as I wanted something to sit on whilst playing on my consoles. & being as smart, comfy chairs don't go below £50 I figured I'd go for one of these seats for my gaming as opposed to a bog standard 4 legger for the same mula. (even if the sound is a "gimmick" as I'm apprantly gonna "feel the sound" lol).

I'm looking forward to mine anyway, & if I get bored of the sound least I'll still have a chair, something I was looking for in the first place! So I say roll on christmas...this fold out one from asda for £7.50 can't be doing the back any good at all on those long Halo sessions! :santa:

P.S. I even done my homework and found out that the shape of the chair (its kinda curved, lying back chilling shape) is apprantly the best posture for your back when sitting. Some study etc etc I found on google said its the best posture for you as opposed to sitting up straight or crouching forwards. :)
#29
So you would spend £50 for half of a chair that flops onto the floor? I think you will find that if you want a decent chair for £50, it is easily found. Go to staples website and you will find many executive style leather chairs there for £50 or less, and that is one example. I use two simmilar style chairs in my gaming room and have had them there for over a year. Do you picture yourself still enjoying this for over a year? Let me know come next christmas ;).

i would rather spend that money on a bean bag (chair) ....

Well said that man!
#32
So let me get this straight, in your previous post you are telling us to buy a desent set of speakers for 45 quid, if you can find some let me know.
AND now you are telling us that you can get a better chair for 45 quid, well go on then, find one

make your mind up....

Its a chair, that is very comfortable, and it has speakers that are very good.
what more do you want for the money...!!

:-D

I'm sorry, but sitting like that on the floor isn't my idea of comfortable. As for speakers for £45, to find some that are better than the horrors concealed within this monstrocity is easy. Hell, for £60 you could invest in some JBL Creature II speakers, a mere £15 more but in terms of sound quality you can't compare them.

In my opinion, as I have said, invest the money one way or the other, if your buying this because you don't have good speakers, then invest in better ones. If your buying this for something comfy to sit on, then invest it in a better chair.

If your buying this because you want a rubbish chair with **** speakers stuffed into it and wires trailing around everywhere, then god help you.

Hi Sparton, as I said I am not interested in the sound, I will not plug it in!, just after a chair as I am fed up of sitting on the floor. It looks comfy enough, dont want a bean bag or camping chair, and can be folded (I think it will still be bulky though!) however I will look at Staples/MFI etc in case there is a better alternative. :thumbsup:
#36
my point was that you get speakers and a chair, all in one package.....and you dont have to pay 45 quid for the each of them.
#37
You can get 2 V rocker juniors for £66.65 as you save a third when you buy 2, don't know that I'd be prepared to pay any more, I've looked & can't find a comfy, compact chair for DS's bedroom for any less, other than a beanbag, which I think wouldn't be as comfy. just hoping SIL will buy the other 1!!

That's what I'm after. I can't have a desk chair because not only will the feet dig into the carpet but it would look pretty stupid in the middle of my dining room. I want a chair that will fit in with the rest of the dining room furniture and it needs to be able to be moved out of the way easily.

I couldn't care less about the sound but it looks like the kind of chair I'm after. I tried a Pyramat in a shop once and it was very comfortable.
