What Im looking for is a high back with head and back support and these keep popping up sadly there is nowhere that i know of i can go to try these chairs out .

I have an Iron Series DXRacer. I have to say it is not a soft padded chair, it's very firm. The lower back support on these chairs is bad in my opinion. There is no curve for the lower back in the chair, instead they give you a back support pillow, which to me, is not very comfortable or ideal. However, these chairs allow you to lower the backrest as far as you want, almost flat, this is why no lower back support is built-in. They also allow you to rock back and forth and lock the position of the rock angle... this is what I do often because I have a lot of upper-back pain, this option really reduces my pain, however, perhaps for some this would be an awkward position to do work in. A good thing about these chairs is you can lean almost flat and take a break... they give you a neck pillow which I like. If you are sitting up straight while doing work, you will need to use the back support pillow, if you are leaning back at an angle, you don't need the back support pillow.

I've had mine over a year, I spend 8 to 10 hours a day in it and the padding has held up very well. But Buka is right, the padding could be considered "firm" which to me is a plus, as the "cushy" chairs tend to break down faster in my experience. I prefer firm seats anyway.

The foot rest is an extra add-on.

I use a generic wooden chair for my PC and it's killing my back, I need a better chair. Herman Miller is too much money for me atm, so I figure DXRacer is the next best thing. Are these actually good or are they just an overrated gamer product?

Picked up my chair recently and I freaking love it. I also had great customer support from Newedge but I bought the chair off Newegg.

We have leap (not a HM chair but same price point) at work and I have a DXRacer Tank at the house.

Honestly both to the touch feel cheap. The leaps metal bits and plastic doesn't feel as super premium as it should be. And the vinyl leather of the DX racer feels like the cheap stuff you find on lower end of the market (It feels thin).

However even with all that the my DXRacer Tank is sturdy. The only part that was cheap was the arm rest which you can break with no issue (as i have when I put pressure on it by accident when I was getting up and snapped the arm rest from its mounting point. Just the arm rest, not the whole arm itself that's connected to the bottom of the chair.). The rest however feels sturdy and looks like it can take the abuse. The foam is thick and firm, and the metal tubes that makes the frames gives it an extra rigidity.
Again besides the armrest the vinyl leather feels like it'll probably be the only other weak point since its your skin (human sweat + oil) making contact with it will break it down quick if you don't take care of it.

I saw the new 2016 Formula models: The "R" in the logo now matches the chair accents (white for black models), the armrests are more squared and the base is different, the dust catcher plastic things are no more there, replaced by a color matching stripe (black for black models). Oh, the red flag with model seems not to be there anymore.
What do you say? Shall we order the spare parts?

I'm in the market for a new chair and am highly considering a dxracer King or Sentinel. I'm 6'4 around 280. The Kings max height is listed as 6'3", with weight at 300. I'm good on weight, and just an inch taller. Should I really go up to the higher model for one inch?

What do fellow owners think?

Hello guys, I have one question for the DXRacer's owners.

I've bought one R-Series and I feel like it ins't totally stable, when I move my body back and forth it moves the seat a little bit.

I've recorded a short video just to show it, I don't know if it's normal or not, can you tell me?

Thank you biggrin.gif
