Choosing The DXRacer Chair
Choosing The Kinsal Chair
Assembling The Chairs
To be fair, the DXRacer had the advantage of familiarity here. We have put together several of their chairs. They are manufactured the same regardless of series. This meant it was very easy for us to put together. The pieces were all there. The quality of materials was easy to see. The assembled chair is very stable and a bit heavy for its size. These are chairs that last. They are also warrantied.
We also found it fairly easy to put together the Kinsal chair. The instructions were clear. The pieces were all present and clearly marked. Our only complaint was that it became clear in this step that this chair is not made from quality parts. There was more plastic than metal. The seat covering felt cheap. The machining was imperfect, and there were stitching flaws in several of the seams. To be clear, we had to look for these defects, but they were definitely present.
We wanted to give both chairs a fair shake. Because of this we didn’t give our tester any information beyond the fact that they would be testing two gaming chairs. They didn’t know about the price difference, lack of web presence, or any other factors.
Our tester tried out the Kinsal chair first. They spent a day with the chair. They spent a couple of hours gaming. Then used the chair to work at their desk, watch television, and otherwise go about their daily routine. Here’s what they had to say.
- The Footrest is Uncomfortable And Pointless
- The Chair Was Comfortable at First But Not After About an Hour
- It Looks Really Nice
- It’s Really Roomy
- The Adjustments Are Difficult to Move
Next, they moved onto the DXRacer Formula series. They spent the same amount of time with the chair, and stuck to the same basic schedule. Here’s the feedback they sent us.
- The Chair’s a Little Small
- This is Obviously a DXRacer
- It’s Nice Looking But Not Exciting
- Like The Smooth Adjustments
- Played For Two Hours And my Feet Aren’t Asleep
Obviously the DXRacer came out ahead, and we honestly expected it to. What we really wanted to explore was whether or not the DXRacer was worth waiting for in the case of a gamer on a budget.
Our Final Thoughts
We’re big fans of dedicated gaming chairs. They look great. The best ones are designed to encourage good posture, and can help prevent aches and pains that are associated with hours of gameplay. They are a worthy investment.
We also understand they cost more than many gamers can afford right out of pocket. There may be budget chairs that are worth the money, but the Kinsal just doesn’t fit into this category. Instead, of buying money for a lesser chair, we recommend the following options:
- Purchasing a decent used office chair online.
- Looking for sales on quality gaming chairs.
- Considering financing options.
- Selling off used games or picking up extra hours at work
- Purchasing a used gaming chair
We’d love to give Kinsal a second chance in the near future. It would be nice to find a budget gaming chair that we can actually endorse. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen.
