The DXRacer Chair
This one went together very easily. Part of this can be credited to the fact that this certainly wasn’t the first DXRacer we’ve unboxed and put together. All told, it took a couple of us less than 30 minutes.
Once again, we ran into the same issue. These chairs simply run small. Our tester comes in at about six foot, and he was pushing the upper limits of the chair. His shoulders came up just a bit higher than they should have based on the seat’s design. On the other hand, he did say it was nice and roomy. He preferred the chair without the neck pillow, but that can be chalked up to personal preference.
Even though there were size differences, this is very much a standard DX chair. It is straight backed, and designed for performance. This is not the chair you would choose for chilling out in front of your flat screen to watch a few movies.
The Gaming Experience
This isn’t a chair for lounging, but it’s a good chair for gaming. After a couple of hours of play, our tester reported that he didn’t have a sore back or stiff leg muscles. One issue that did crop up was the supposed rocking motion. It’s very stiff, so much so that this feature may as well not exist. He also said the slightly ‘upright’ position helped to keep him on task and focused on the screen in front of him. This chair won’t make you a champion, but it could give you a slight improvement.
The Need For Seat Chair
This chair wasn’t quite as easy to put together. The back is attached to the seat with a pair of braces. It took two of us to put that part together. You can probably tackle this alone, but you’ll wish you had a second set of hands. Other than that, it went together pretty quickly.
Here the fit was actually a bit better. Our tester did have a few complaints about the lumbar pillow. Because of the way the chair is designed, the lumbar pillow causes you to sit uncomfortably far forward in the seat. So, the testing was finished without that. Fortunately, this can be removed or not as you prefer it. Compared to the DXracer this is definitely a relaxed and roomier chair. Also, if rocking is important to you, this chair has a much more satisfying rocking motion. Overall, the adjustment mechanisms on this chair work a bit more smoothly than the King Series.
After a couple of hours of playing time, our tester reported back to us. The news was nearly identical to that of the DXracer. This chair was also quite comfortable. There was no post gaming fatigue or soreness. The overall feel was a bit more relaxed, but this is clearly a chair designed for function.
These are two very well made chairs. We can definitely see either one being a seat of choice for selective gamers. They are durable, and they come from two of the most reputable manufacturers in the business. Ultimately, our choice boiled down to fit and functionality. The Need For Seat chair wins out because it offers smoother adjustments, better rocking action, and a slightly roomier fit.
