3 Problems I See With Cheap Office Chairs
I have already mentioned the downsides of buying a cheap chair for gaming, but I would like to sum them up in a top 3 for you once more:
- Manufacturing: Cheap chairs often feel unstable and make cracking noises if you move in them. The stitching often lacks precision, and you find little threads sticking out here and there. Finally, the faux leather tends to wrinkle up a lot and does not sit firmly on the foam.
- Material quality: PU leather does not always equal PU leather. Cheap synthetic leather is thin and not very durable. It feels more like plastic rather than simulating the illusion of a genuine leather covering. A quality gaming chair is supported by a class 4 gaslift that resists even heavy weight spikes creating by a user “falling” into his seat – cheap brands do not mention which class they build in … Furthermore, a durable office chair is based on a metal frame while cheap chairs often use plywood (at least partially). In the end, a cheap chair also leaves you annoyed with its loud and sluggish casters scratching across your floor.
- Adjustability & Ergonomics: I combined these subjects since they are closely connected – not everyone is built equally, so one has to be able to adjust a chair to make it fit correctly. Of course, you can reach a pretty decent fit if you are lucky and averagely sized, but decent is not desirable if you spend 2 or more hours sitting in front of your computer. Adjustable armrests (preferably 4D), an appropriate sitting height, flexible neck and lumbar support as well as comforting side boulders.
Pretty convincing right? And I have not even started to criticise the optics, and since this is a matter of taste anyways, I will leave that to you. But believe me when I say that you are not going to impress anyone with a cheap racing seat (not that this should be your primary concern).
Although being a very important factor in my opinion, I also left out the quality of customer support. As far as my experience goes, cheap (no name) products often do not even have anything that deserves carrying the term customer support – but that is a different story everyone has its own view on.
