Vertagear SL5000 Buying & Size Guide

It’s true that you can use just about any chair for gaming – you can even sit on an upturned box if you have to – but your chair can make a significant difference in your game play and enjoyment. If you go into a game dreading future back pain, the whole thing will be ruined. That’s why it’s so important to find the right chair for your build and gaming needs. You want something durable, robust and comfortable.

Your chair is there to support you, and if you’re willing to forego fancy add-ons in the name of comfort, then Vertagear’s SL5000 series may be a good match for your needs. It doesn’t come with fireworks, so to speak, but it’s a good quality option built on a tough steel frame and a Class 4 Gas lift. For a mid-range price tag, you could do a lot worse.
