Pros:

  • Great design.
  • Good quality stitching.
  • Firm, cold foam padding.
  • Easy to follow assembly.

Cons:

  • Rattle on the armrests.
  • Lack of lumbar support.
  • Lack of head/neck support.
  • Nylon base as opposed to metal.

KitGuru says: The design of this chair is very cool and very nostalgic. It's a great showpiece to add to any gaming setup, that will definitely draw comments from anyone who sees it. It's built well for the price, with all the major structural parts feeling well made and sturdy. The armrests do rattle quite a lot however, but for me, I found it hard to get comfortable in the chair during my time with it – the lack of any lumbar and neck support is disappointing at this price point.
