Okay, saw these on GAME and thought they were worth a post. As a user of a DX Racer, I actually think these look pretty decent for the money. They recline back 180° which is a must for me (Bad back) and it totally helps. Not a fan of a lumbar cushion but they can be removed. Sitting for hours at a desk can be a killer, so being able to make adjustments is always welcomed.

Anyway, overall these are worth a look, they are over £100 everywhere else from what I can see and offer a decent amount of options for the dosh.

WTF ever happened to office chairs. All I ever see are these ridiculous, gaudy plastic bits of tat. I'll do everyone here a favour: save your money, visit IKEA, buy a MARKUS for ~£120, never buy one of these pieces of crap again.

I can confirm that they are comfortable and the adjustable cushions are great lumbar and neck supports. I use a slight recline and it also has a tilt function which helps me. Was easy to assemble and arrived very quickly. There are better, more expensive chairs out there but at this price I can't complain.

Chairs look horrible with the TANK branded on. Can anyone vouch these chairs are any good?
Don't know if this is any good or not,but I picked up a x rocker gaming chair for my son which has 4 or 5 spears built in and a sub/vibratation thing built in,and it was £50 new.Online they seem to be around £150 or more.

I consider a "Gaming Chair" to be something like 40-Year-Old-Virgin.

These just look like... "Chair"

Heat for black/ red combo
the chair is made of chipboard with plastics stapled to it. The foam is thousands of chunks of chopped up foam 2nd hand. Do not spend less than £180 on a reclining chair or you can guarantee some really bad corners have been cut. A 15 stone guy would snap this in one day.

To be fair mate when you sit on them your butt and back will hide those logos.

The markus is crap and not worth the money. There are only a few bolts holding the back onto the base and eventually they break and you end up nearly breaking your neck falling backwards out of the chair.
I'll certainly never be buying a markus again that's for sure!
The T on the branding should be substituted for W because you're consigning yourself to self-service only having one of these in your house unless you're already married.

You must be using it wrong, I've had a Markus for years and it's still as sturdy as the day I put it together oO
180 degrees really? wouldn't it topple backwards?

Thank you for the anecdotal evidence. Mine's fine and I bought it used, so I guess we're 1-1.

I was wondering that- so it goes from straight up, you wind it back and back, past the horizontal (90 degrees), and round so it's hanging directly down from the back of the seat? Figured I was missing the point..

What a £189 chair for £50? I think that constitutes a deal in most people's eyes.

The bases should be quite heavy if anything like the DX Chairs. You'd be surprised, pretty well balanced.

its assuming that 90 degrees is the normal sitting position and 180 degrees leaving it flat like a bed

Don't know.much about gaming chairs and thought it may have just been over priced on that site,plus it seems to be discontinued everywhere else.

Will post up the deal when I get home,I will look for the receipt as well for proof,as I know how people are quick to dismiss a good deal sometimes if it's not onlone.

Not sure it's for naps, haha. But I have fell asleep in mine before. If you ever get chance to try a chair with a 180 degree function, do! Whatever the chair might be, I can't do without it now. I need the varying angles to keep my back from giving me pain and no one position keeps me comfy for long. I paid twice this for my DX and I don't regret it at all.

Is this deji's brand off of YouTube for comedy shorts gamer if so I wouldn't buy this just watch his videos and see for yourself ....
I would be totally fine with these without the stupid branding.
Another +1 for the Markus, pretty decent chair for the money.

I agree with you, but is there anything similar (good quality and comfortable) that doesn't have cow's skin?
Edited by: "blizeH" 25th May 2017
clones of this can be found on ebay and often slightly cheaper & less gaudy eg
ebay.co.uk/itm…c0b

at this price point you are not going to get the 'best' quality but I simply dont accept that they will all fall apart within a couple of years

I have been using a £30 office chair I bought from viking direct for over 10 years now & its still fine if a bit tatty - I weighed between 14 to 16 stone during this time - when I use it in its reclined position the top of the chair is supported by a wall which I think has helped prolong the life of the metal recline mechanism underneath the chair that

I used one of those and ended in a wheel chair.
I've been looking for a more streamlined chair like this. Used to have a massive office chair that takes up quite a bit of room.

I just wish these "gaming" ones weren't so plastered in logos or branding. The black one doesn't seem so bad though.

Any other users bought one of these or recommend something similar?
