Gaming Chair Test 2017: buying guides and chairs in comparison
It's been almost three years, developed when advertised for players office chairs in the race seat design to a trend that has been dismissed by PC gamers be short-lived, yet still continues. Just two Articles (PCGH 11/2014 and 08/2016) confirmed that fitted with supporting plates in the back and seat area chairs are not only suitable for the typical attitude when playing (90 degree backrest position), but also in everyday prove office use as comfortable seating.
Initially, the market for the Gaming Chairs was still manageable, manufacturers such Maxnomic (Need for Seat), DX Racer or via Caseking.de sold AKRacing models were the top dogs among the offered seats for players. With Noble Chairs, nitro Concepts, Vertagear, Thunder X3, Speedlink and Tesoro 2,016 other manufacturers compete since mid for the favor of playing on PC clients. In recent months, many gaming chair manufacturers presented their latest collection. With the latest models, there are differences in the design, choice of colors and materials of the covers, in the basic structure but soft many models only slightly from each other and often have the same features that ensure that the player is sitting ergonomic and stress-free. These include armrests that can be adjusted not only in height, but also horizontally (left / right and front / back) and a lumbar support in the form of a cushion. is on what things when buying a Gaming Chairs have to respect that we show in the next purchase advice we give additional four concrete purchase recommendations.

Body measurements and weight: The most important criteria when purchasing gaming Chair
The first thing you should do before buying a gaming chairs, is to gather information about the maximum height for the chair is suitable in-law. Unfortunately, there are only a few manufacturers that make such Maxnomic (Need for Seat) or Noble Chairs information about the maximum height and even offer gas springs with different lengths so that different sized players can use a model. If such an indication from the manufacturer / seller of Gaming Chairs can not be found, the sample is sitting is the only way to check whether the chair is suitable for their own body size. That a chair is too small, it can be seen first of all because the mind is above the headrest. Furthermore, the legs extend too far above the seat addition - ideally a two fingers would be wider distance from the edge of the seat surface to the hollow of the knee - so that its edge presses on the underside of the thighs. If the chair is too large, however, it is difficult with the entire sole of the foot touching the ground so you automatically moves with his legs on the seat forward. In addition, the backrest can support not optimal back as their shape and the position of supporting plates do not match the size of the back.
The second fundamental criterion that there are to consider when buying, is to specify the maximum weight load. While the size limit is mentioned in only a few manufacturers, indicating the maximum weight load on the other hand is found in almost every gaming chair. Does the chair carry too much weight - on average hold office chairs for players approximately 120 kg weight - it comes on the one hand to problems with the gas spring. Secondly, the chair loses much of stability, as too much weight pressing against the back or on the front edge of the seat. In addition, also suffer the roles that cushion the tilt mechanism and the whole steel frame Belt construction, when the maximum load is exceeded.
The design, colors and decorations: a matter of taste
Comfortable playing: The great buying advice for Gaming Chairs (15) Source: PC Games Hardware Although there is a seating and not a piece of clothing at a Gaming Chair, personal taste plays a crucial role. When surface material for rest and seat surfaces thoroughly differences between genuine leather, artificial leather or fabric, for example, in the absorption of sweat or feel of the references can be identified. However, the color, the design of the headrest or supporting plates in the shoulder area as well as applications such as embroidery or logos are always a matter of taste, since each buyer is different preferences. Therefore, the subjective features remain also outside in our buying advice. We are not interested how good and trendy looks a model that matters to us is that you can play with comfortable and ergonomic and work.
Features: These things need a recommended Gaming Chair offer
What roles spare the parquet floor? Which material to the base, pass the frame structure for the seat surface and the backrest and need one necessarily the so-called 4D armrests? We show what features make a Gaming Chair recommended.
The right underbody: not tilt it should be
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (2) Source: PC Games Hardware The main reason for the optimal level of a Gaming Chairs is the star base and fixed thereto roles. The material from which the base is made of metal should be die-cast aluminum or even better. In priced models, the star base often consists only of plastic injection molding. This material is relatively stable, but it comes sooner to fatigue fractures or cracks in long-term exposure. In the roles it should be noted that these are smooth, whether they come on hard (parquet / tiles / stone) or soft floors like carpet, PVC or laminate used. Ideally, they also have a locking function that is particularly on hard, slippery floors beneficial. Meanwhile, some manufacturers offer such Maxnomic, DX Racer or AKRracing also known as Blade roles. Whose tread consists, unlike regular rolls, made of rubber, whereby not only the traction rise to smooth surfaces, but at the same time to be spared the ground. Thanks to this rolling characteristics, the blade wheels are suitable primarily for hardwood floors such as laminate and parquet. However, whether it is this appreciation that beats with 40 Euros to the price, really worth, we still need to test it in practice.
Gaming Chair roles compared
The Sitzmechnanik: Gas Spring (height adjustment) and tilt possibility
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (3) Source: PC Games Hardware The gas spring is the key component when it so the weight is about the height adjustment and the maximum load that the office chair has to endure the race seat design. Although the manufacturers / distributors provide details here you should not miss to test how far the height adjustment can extend and which seat height can be adjusted maximum here on a trial sitting. In theory, the optimal seat height is reached when the upper and lower leg at least form an angle of 90 degrees and the front edge of the seat and back of the knee will be straight attitude at the same height. Since an angle greater than 90 degrees is still back friendly, you should also try Moreover, if the height adjustment allows a position which is located 5 to 10 centimeters above their ideal seat height.
Another feature that should provide each Gaming Chair is a tilt mechanism that can be locked in several stages. The tilt mechanism ensures that we can move towards playing away from the monitor or desk without the back is permanently protected from bad posture. It is important that this mechanism is not shaky and has no play. In addition, the chair also has to keep its stable state when the maximum strain on the front edge of the seat, while the tilt mechanism is locked, and the seat assembly tends toward the rear. We recommend a tilt mechanism but only if a mechanism is present in addition, can be adjusted with the resistance of the body weight.
The construction of the seat and backrest
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (17) Source: Tesoro The preferred cushioning material for office chairs with Rennsitz look is PU cold foam with different degrees of density (the higher the density, the harder the bearing surface). At recommended models (see Section four buying tips), the basic structure on which rest the related PU cold foam mats, of a steel tube frame with elastic bands. Alternatively, there are also constructions with metal grids or chipboard. Of Gaming Chairs with the latter base structure in the backrest and / or seat unit but we do not recommend starting in general. If you can live with a metal grid structure, usually saves a few euros, anyway, we recommend not least because of ergonomics and comfort, a metal frame elastic band design (see clicking comparison) below. Only by the elastic bands, the foam pad is ideally located on the seat surface and can additionally be optimally regardless of the material of the cover to the buttocks and back shape.
Seat designs in Verglech
The armrests: variable height and position are important
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (12) Source: PC Games Hardware An armrest should not be missing in any seating for players and a model is only recommended if the armrests sufficient such as in our saving tip the Tesoro zone balance to a large have come and on the other are adjustable in height. In addition, the supports must also rotate and can be moved from front to back. More expensive models like the Maxnomic Commander SIII / Office Comfort or leather Epic Gaming chair are even equipped with so-called 4D armrests. They have the advantage that they also can be moved from right to left, to make them closer together for players with narrow shoulders. This is the optimal posture while playing and writing of great advantage. In the ideal attitude, whether played or typed in the office, your forearms should in fact been resting on the arms without being moved for mouse actions or typing with all fingers. This attitude avoids the tension in the forearm muscles and wrist.
The seat: room for the rear of the optimal hardness and supportive side bolsters
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (13) Source: PC Games Hardware on the Probesitzen no buyer of a gaming chair should be without, which is the first and most important advice when it comes to the size and comfort of the seat. Since there are quite even players with wider rear parts of pure seating area should be for a failed sufficiently wide so that the outer sides of the pelvis and thighs not encounter unpleasant on the side panels. For another, the length dimension has to be right, so that almost the entire underside of the thigh is on the seat - a two to three finger is ideally wide gap between the edge of the seat and back of the knee. Furthermore, one should look to see if the seat sides fulfill their function as a side support for the pelvis. Especially high expansive and not padded seat side can prove to be very uncomfortable when the buttock and thigh muscles lie there and not on the flat portion of the seat.
The backrest: The chief support
play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (9) Source: PC Games Hardware In addition to the seat unit is the backrest, the most important component when it comes to the comfort and ergonomics of a Gaming Chairs. Which must be positioned in a 90 degree angle to the seat and must not be too short, so the mind completely extends partially or almost the optional equipped with a pillow headrest. Of the optimum length of the back, it also depends on whether the two shoulder cheeks are suitably positioned so that also give the body part really stop because the area between the cheek either too narrow or too wide fails. Furthermore, it must adapt to the form of the backrest to the shape of the back, so this at the typical gamer attitude (90 angle between the thighs and upper body / lower arms are almost completely on the armrests on) is well supported, only then is a very good ergonomics possible. The hardness of the cold foam and the terms of the seat and backrest should correspond to their personal preferences. Who calls a muscular rump narrow his own, perhaps like a soft to medium-hard padding. If the rear end slightly wider and there are fewer muscles a hard padding is comfortable. The orientation on your own preferences is also true for the covers. Not everyone likes leather, because it absorbs sweat faster and is generally more sensitive than vinyl. Others prefer fabric covers, because it is not so warm on them in summer and on the leathers. Since there are many subjective factors in the game, we save a recommendation.
however, in return advised buying a Gaming Chairs, which is equipped with both Maxnomic models with a "real" lumbar / lumbar support. Which ensures that the lumbar region is optimally supported when you press, for example, the pelvis in the gamer attitude towards the back. While much of the manufacturer mitliefern a small pillow to support the loin, when incorporated into the backrest mechanism can (see picture above) the role of rest, on the loin rests, be changed by turning knob from a straight to a convex shape. Such a construction, which is the ultimate in ergonomics, we found in our tests only in the predominantly designed for office use Maxnomic Commander S III and Office Comfort (OFC).

To help you in your buying decision I make in the following best gaming chairs on the market before and recommend you the best choice for every budget!
Why do you need one at all gaming chair?
Through my own gaming career (hey, after all, times European champion in Unreal Tournament Domination) I have learned one thing: We spend so much time on the computer - Matches, training, scrims, Stream view - that we, with all peripherals and hardware No compromise should be received. This means, for example, a really good mechanical keyboard like the Razer BlackWidow costs only 100 €; that we hew to a thousand times a day, buying a really good keyboard should be mandatory. It is the same with the mouse. the headset. the computer, the mouse pad - and the Gaming Chair !
Even though I thus sound like an old man, but: The health of your spine is important. If you eight hours a day (OMG !! NERDS 1) sits on the PC, an incorrect attitude in a cheap computer chair can permanently have dire consequences. Therefore, a request: Invests 50 to 100 € more for a clever gaming chair before you damage it bears. Look at it positively - in a hot gaming chair you sit a lot more comfortable, and your friends will make envious eyes
What makes a good gaming chair?
The general rule: Those who buy cheap, buy twice. There are so many rickety gaming chairs out there that you have to be really careful. we therefore when purchasing the best gaming chair must pay attention to the following things:
The best gaming chair must, of course, extremely stable (even with "fuller" gamblers). An Insecure chair evidence of poor workmanship and annoying in continuous use. Poorly processed seams or inadequate materials are unfortunately widespread.
Some gamers are thin shirts, some have rather "thick bones" (D) of too much fast food. A good gaming chair must be able to have a perfect ergonomics for long Bonanza sessions, suitable for the particular body shape. Especially important is a good comfort in the lumbar spine and head.
Setting the chair as frags in the game: The more, the better! The right gaming chair need adjustment for any height. Really good gamer seats allow a completely flat adjustable backrest, for example, if you look after half a lap CS: GO would stretch short.
