How do these compare to the secret labs chairs? Those give much better info about their chairs but I'm a bit concerned about how much of the price there went straight into marketing.

I am looking for a gaming chair.
This one is not a "deal", more like a $10 discount on hard to sell color. (purple)
They raised this color MSRP to 299. (to look like a deal?) Other color just sell regular price 173-178 depend on color.
However it did grab my attention on how thick the Depth is, looks comfortable.
So thx OP anyway if this is not a affiliate post.

Got a bit confused when I compare it on Amazon.
Found their brand and chair looks the same.
https://www.amazon.com//dp/B07MKNDYQY/
Price around $170-180 after $10 coupon.

But the description are different...
Newegg one picture shows
5.5" cushion depth and 20" seat depth
Amazon one picture shows
6.2" cushion depth and 24" seat depth
Are they different model or just marketing messed up?

I can't tell you about the chair here, but I got a secretlabs titan chair a handful of months ago and it's absolutely solid. I see these rando $150 gaming chairs displayed in Costco and they look like junk.
Spend the money on a secretlabs.

No. Buy a real chair, an office chair and not a gaming chair. The leather is always garbage fake leather that will peel off within 6 months of use and the arms are usually trash quality on these gaming chairs. Gaming chairs you are paying for the name and not the chair itself.

Well there are different fabrics at Secret Labs. PU leather is one of them but there is fabric options. From what it looks like, it looks commercial grade which is always more expensive than residential grade. Many office chairs don't have tilt lock features and if they do, they cost a pretty penny. I've looked for a decent looking office chair that at least looks like it's from this decade under $200 with tilt lock features and all they have is tilt vertical lock or tilt rock. What doesn't help is that most websites define tilt lock on a chair as simply being able to remain vertically locked or rock. So you are stuck with going through hundreds of chairs trying to find more information about those features when a lot of chairs don't even have good spec depth to begin with.

Secret labs uses cold cure foam, the same foam used in automobiles. They're firmer but more durable. PU leather tends to crack / peel as they age, but secret labs has offerings in cloth upholstry which won't crack/peel.

Agreed, but for a different reason than just the materials. Arguing about what kind of materials the chair is made from is irrelevant. The real problem with gaming chairs is that they have absolutely zero actual ergonomic chair features and are simply mass produced pieces of junk from the same Chinese factory.

Adjustable armrests are probably first mandatory feature of an ergonomic chair, yet so many of these gaming chairs don't have them. If you don't see adjustable armrests on a chair, it's a very hard pass.

The next thing you need to look for is a back that is actually molded for humans to sit on. All these racing style gaming chairs have an absolutely ridiculous straight back design that doesn't curve back like 100% of ergonomic office chairs do and offer some stupid pillow to compensate for the absolute lack of back support you will be getting.

BTW side bolsters have absolutely zero purpose in an ergonomic chair. The only reason why they exist because in a race car you might be taking turns at 100+ mph and you need something to hold you into your seat. In an ergonomic chair, you want the freedom to move and angle your body in various ways while you work.

These gaming chairs are just identical mass produced junk designed for gAmIng AeStHeTiC and not actually any ergonomics. Few companies actually do ergonomics right, but those companies also supply chairs for the majority of offices in the US. Walk into any Fortune 500 office and nobody has one of these pieces of junk, they will have a chair made by a company with 100 years of ergonomics experience like Herman Miller or Steelcase.

Unfortunately those chairs are also uber expensive. Companies can afford to pay this because bad ergonomics costs money due to lost productivity or even injuries from workers sitting in a bad chair all day. If you can't afford $750 for a new Steelcase, your best bet might be to get a used model for around $200 from local office liquidators or Craigslist/Facebook Marketplace.

This one looks better than most, but still, from an ergonomic standpoint, it's a dumpster fire.
  • no adjustable arms
  • single pivot point seat back
  • no seat depth adjustments
  • lame cushions in place of lumbar and neck support
  • questionably useful footrest
How about redirecting some of the build costs away from marketing, embroidery, and pillows tacked on with elastic and instead make the chair more functional as a chair?

if this is anything like that "fortnite" chair that was on sale and looks identical to this, I'd avoid it lol

my friend got one and it gets so hot, and it's stiff as a board. very little comfort. his armrests have holes from his elbows already and the fold out footrest is constantly clunking around

he also has that secret lab chair, and its night and day. the secret lab is comfy, pretty cool and it has a spring loaded pivot, which this chair doesnt. you can only set specific reclining levels, instead of leaning back which is far more comfy.

JUNK!

People like how they look. You aren't wrong though, a good ergonomic office chair is the only way to go if you care about comfort and your health. Of course in my 20's I would be fine sitting on stacked up pizza boxes. LMAO

I got the secret labs on a "discount" for 350 and it's solid, had it for a few months no issues, it's the omega stealth and it's leather.

'PU Leather' stinks, just like the name implies.

In 6 months you'll have little flakes of leather all over the floor, and in 12 months you'll have a patchy bald ugly chair.

I wouldnt say the name, as much as the look of a cool racing chair. But yeah they suck, well most of them. Especially the cheap ones. A good office chair is what you want. Tjhat's what I use. I have a chair very similar to what I have in the office as I do for PC gaming at home. Zero problems. I think I paid like $100 for the chair, super deal at officemax, and I'm a really tall dude, 250 lbs.
