Anyone try those Shaq chairs?
Bruh I got ADHD I vibrate outta the chair without one, I want it to lock me down.Stop wasting your money on "gaming chairs" Especially ones that compare to "racing" chairs. Racing chairs, as they hint below. Racing chairs and design is NOT meant for comfort, it is meant to hold you in a stiff position and lock you down.

Likewise. Steve Shit-On-Everything Burke can kick rocks. My Secretlab Omega is the most comfortable office chair I've ever used.That's funny, because I prefer my "gaming" chair to any short-back task/office chair I've sat in. Including my own brother's $1500 Aeron.
I like tech Jesus but I don't need him to tell me I shouldn't buy a "gaming" chair. My $600 leather noblechair was well worth the money. It fits me like a glove and I don't care about the dumbass argument over semantics.

I've had mine a few months now and I got the softweave fabric. I don't like leather, doesn't breathe enough for me. Thus far the chair still looks new, but it's not very old so that doesn't say much.I've been looking at both of these what model/finish/material did you get and how long have you had them?
My concern has been the longevity of the material especially the leather, my last one I got was the maxnomic and it was a great and comfortable chair but the PU leather only lasted about 3-4 years before it started cracking and flaking
I tried getting my fat ass comfortable in a "Racing chair". It was horrible. Hard as a rock with no comfort and the ass padding felt like a big dildo wanted to make it's way up. Once I got in it, I could'nt get my ass out of it without my son helping pry my butt out. Worse chair ever. I'm looking into the ergonomic office chair instead. Don't get me wrong, I think the Racing chair has potential, but for a guy my size @ 6'1" and 225, ain't no way it's meant for me. Now for those boney people with no ass, I'm sure it's comfy.
Maybe the one I was trying at staples was for girls or midgets. Was quite narrow and the padding was hard. Sale's kid said that was the largest they had. I've been stuck using an exec's office chair for the past 10 years. My ass is crying for new padding.I'm not sure which chair you are referring to. We are almost the same size. I'm shorter and weigh slightly more than you do and I rarely have trouble with chairs like that. (6ft, 235lbs.) The only one I had trouble with one was of the earlier Corsair chairs which was simply too small.
The OP says that they went through a bunch of OfficeDepot/Max chairs over the years. I bought a Quantum 9000 mesh from Office Depot in 2008 for I think $430, I'm still sitting in it as I type this. I use this for at least 4 hours every day. I weigh 160lbs. All these years later and the arm rests are just starting to degrade, literally the best chair I've ever owned. Now, I want to buy the executive chair version because I want a head rest.
I don't understand the entire gaming chair craze, all of them are shite.
The Quantum 9000 is $316 on Amazon right now. https://www.amazon.com/WorkPro-Quantum-Ergonomic-Mid-Back-Chair/dp/B00JRE37Z0/ref=sr_1_5?crid=235OZPLG3U9UX&dchild=1&keywords=quantum+9000&qid=1614288435&sprefix=qauntum+9000,aps,842&sr=8-5
- SIHOO office chair (ubiquitous model on Amazon) - Not as solid as the Steelcase or Herman Miller, but it gets you 95% of the options and comfort for 40% of the price new of those brands. Surprisingly good, and still beats the pants off any "gaming" chair for extended use.
$800?? These sell for £225/$300 in the UK:Coincidentally *this* SIHOO caught my eye the other day, but then noticed pretty much all the reviews were from people that got the chair free through VINE. Looks like a decent chair with the features I want (mesh back, headrest, ergonomic), but not giving $800 to a chinese company for the privilege of being the only sucker that actually paid money for it.
