I love my wheel but the faff of setting it up means it sees limited use. If you need something you can fold out of the way easily this seems to be the best (only??!) option.

10% quidco so 122.31. Cheapest I've seen it. Quidco offer ends in 3 days.

Expensive for a glorified lawn chair but all the reviews seem to be positive.

If I hadn't bought a Wheelstand Pro a few months ago, I wouldn't hesitate.

Was tempted by the 20% off deal at Currys, but this is even better.

Do Currys sell the playseat? I don't see it there?

Unless I'm getting confused, yes, it comes under gaming accessories. Only noticed it when I was browsing what was included in the offer.

Don't see it . Oh well. I was thinking if they were close in price I might collect one from Currys to play with over the long weekend rather than waiting for delivery.


great chair good price with cashback

I've just spent far too long trying to find out where I saw it. It's not on PC World/Currys website, sorry about that!

I'm still convinced it was there and I hope I'm not losing my mind. It was £164 ( with 20% off, or so I thought), they also had a couple of other seats, the more expensive ones. I might have to enquire about it because it's bugging me now.

Cold for 2 reasons.

1 - I paid less than this from them last year albeit only by £5

2 - Worst company I have ever dealt with. Poor opening hours means if you have a problem you only have a relatively small window of opportunity to contact them. I ordered a Logitech wheel at the same time and the order got split and they attempted delivered of one of the items to the wrong address. Unfortunately this happened about 3pm and therefore they were closed for the weekend so had to wait until Monday to contact them. It then took a further two days before they could change address as I had to jump through several hoops to get the address changed with the delivery company. I had wished at this point I hadn't paid extra for next day delivery!
When it finally got delivered a week after I had ordered it, the wheel was a 2 pin European plug which was not mentioned in the advert. I am pretty sure that uk legislation stated it was illegal to sell non bathroom items with a 2 pin plug unless an adapter was fitted but after several complaints to the company, they didn't care as there was no response.

I would never use them again, I'm sure they have had many happy customers in the past but I was not happy in the slightest.

No worries. It happens to us all :). Thanks for checking.

Doesn't sound good. Pretty sure you need to sell goods in the UK with a 3pin plug. Hopefully my chair arrives in one piece so I don't have to deal with them!

Got this chair from them about 2 years ago. No problems and a good purchase. Folds up with wheel and pedals attached. I also had a wheelstand pro but much prefer this as everything is more stable in use.

Great product if your a casual sim racer like me.... the ease of setup and fold away is great, and its very sturdy, which is surprising when you look at it.

Was that not before delivery though?

Looking back at my order is states "Free Standard Postage and Packing". I wonder if I used a code? Regardless, I still wouldn't use them.

However, the chair is good, plenty of adjustment, comfy and easy to store away. I actually used it for the first time in 6 months the other night to play Drive Club VR, that made the game much better.

Chair arrived safe and sound today. Delivered by Yodel but no issues.
Easy enough to setup. As mentioned it doesn't look like it should be sturdy but is when you are in it. Spent a couple of hours in Project Cars and I really like it so far. I've managed to find a nice comfortable driving position and surprisingly it does add to the experience.

I still think it's overpriced but sadly it has no competition so this won't change. Don't think I'd go back to not having one now though.

Upgraditis has already set in! Thinking of doing this:

Although I already have a spare amp lying around so just 45 quid for the shaker rather than 200 for the kit!
