Out of interest, what makes this a gaming chair? Many gaming chairs without wheels have things like built in speakers etc, yet I can't see any of that here. Is it just because it's got a red stripe on it?
A bit unstable if you stand on it?

Pretty good chair. I have that one that is white and blue and it's held up quite well over a years of use.

Probably! The brand is X-rocker but you're right there doesn't seem to be anything "built in"
Good chair, have one myself. Not sure its worth the current price tag unless you have some vouchers to use
Arms are rock solid if you're buying this consider getting some sort of padding to make it better otherwise your arms will be cold and your elbows will be red raw.
Wont leather effect year like no ones business? I'd prefer real leather.

I wouldn't buy a chair with built in speakers. Proper gamers would have decent speaker setup or decent headset
argos.co.uk/pro…603 - £91.99 if you want the same chair but with built in Bluetooth speakers

I was about to order. You got some vouchers for me ??

You not think it’s worth this price? Why. I thought it looked alright
I have had one of these for about a year now. They are not particularly comfortable but it has wared well. I prefer the ones I got from staples a few years back as they are more comfy and also the arms raise so you can slide them under a desk or table. Not sure if they are still available somewhere but they look like this.

I just can't reccomend any gaming chair to anyone. A proper task chair at the same price point is just a healthier, more ergonomic option, that is usually more durable.

After just over 1 year our leather effect xrocker is a mess!!

Cold, it's not real leather.
Can anyone recommend a good 'gaming' style office chair for around £50?

Modern faux leather is good stuff. I prefer it to leather now

Why would you want real leather? Because you're not going to get it for this price

You're right, maybe not at this price but I'd rather get genuine leather.

Herman Miller is a company that makes the more luxury task chairs although IKEA has a really good one for a bit less than £200. If you have a look around you may find some cheaper ones.
Why would you not just get a good office chair?

The IKEA Markus chair is pretty good, although they keep hiking the price of it.

All the cheap chairs (like £50ish) I've tried have been covered in that PU leather which starts peeling off after like a year.

The gas piston in chairs like these can fail catastrophically and has killed people before. I would not be taking that risk. Also, fun fact: 150kg is exactly double my weight.

And a 'go faster' shape. Just like the side skirts on ahem, a Ford Fiesta.
