DXRacer Chair Review
So I am lucky enough to have a girlfriend who apparently has a giant horse shoe tucked away somewhere. She won a Facebook contest from DXRacer.ca that was for any DXRacer chair I wanted. Naturally I went to the MAX and chose one from the Max series.
Before this contest I did weeks and weeks of chair research. I spend about 12 hours a day on my ass, during the day I’m a programmer and after that I am a gamer. Needless to say I could use a good chair that won’t ruin me. I’ve checked reviews, I’ve looked at competition, read many guides of what to look for in a chair. If I was about to spend $400-$600 on a chair (or anything) I was going to make sure that it was the one. I was replacing a chair that I got for free 9 years ago, even just a couple days ago I was sitting in it and minding my own business when a couple bolts fell out and nothing about this chair sat straight as you can see.
It is the one. My ass is currently engaged to this beautiful chair and I expect the wedding will happen soon.
When I was first looking at getting the chair it was months ago and finding a chair that would ship to Canada was a chore and I couldn’t get in touch with anyone on the Canadian side about the chairs. In the past couple months the Canadian retailer has picked up a lot and they picked up their social media and even got a new site with a chat feature so they ask you if you need help! That’s a huge turn around from before.
Now on to the chair!
I waited excitedly by my computer with the FedEx tracker up in a Chrome tab refreshing frequently and that’s when I noticed that FedEx had delivered the package without so much as a doorbell ring. That was a strange way to treat my chair sized package.
I hefted the box up to my room and opened it up. It was packaged nicely and had that new smell and I assembled it pretty easily, the directions were easy to follow. I hit a couple snags that were my own stupidity like not reading the instructions, spoiled by Lego and Ikea directions. The other small issue I have is the Alan key they gave me had the normal key end and a phillips end, they are interchangeable ends in this case so when you go to turn it you can use each end. It took me about 20-30 minutes to put it all together.
Once the chair was assembled I stood in awe with the chair complete before me. There was a choir of angles singing and doves flew in the background. Now that I was done admiring it time to put it to work.
This chair is just great.
The chair is very adjustable and comfortable, one of its selling features is that it’s a full back chair that can have its back lay 180 degrees. I was sceptical at first of it supporting me but I laid back and pushed the ground with my feet, didn’t even budge. I could very easily nap in this chair and very likely will someday.
This chair feels like a $600 chair, I’ve sat in many chairs through my life and this takes the cake as far as office chairs are concerned. I’m so happy to be a part of the DXRacer family.
