Why buy a $400 DXRacer gaming chair when an office store sells $100 chairs? This is a question that we often get and with good reasons. Although gaming chairs are now available in a lot of online stores, they are rarely seen in retail stores. Therefore, it's hard to try a DXRacer chair, or any other brand for that matter, before making a purchase.
A gaming chair is a long-term investment that is meant to be used daily (8h+) and can last years without any issues. The number one issue we often see in a regular office chair is the cushion "sinking" because it has been used too much. A gaming chair is designed to be used daily and to prevent that issue, memory foam is used inside them to keep its form and shape and prevent any "sinking".
Why buy a product that you never tried when there is an "OK" choice in the office store near you?
To answer this question, we have to better understand what is a DXRacer gaming chair.
- Memory foam
- Adjustable backseat (up to 135°)
- Adjustable armrests
- Adjustable cushions (headrest + lumbar)
- 2-year warranty on parts + Lifetime warranty on frame
- Designed to support light weight and heavy weight
- Hundreds of available models with plenty of colors and designs
Those are the main features you will likely see in a DXRacer chair that are not always available in a regular office chair. A good way to know if a DXRacer is worth it is to ask ourselves if we really sit that much in front of the computer. If the answer is yes, then a good chair is important to an office setup considering the number of hours we sit and how a good gaming chair can prevent some discomfort that we can experience in a regular office chair.
Of course, one cost a little more than the other. Yes, a DXRacer is more expensive that an office chair, but it will last longer. When buying a gaming chair, you are assured that it will last a few years for a few reasons. First, it's designed to be used daily. Second, you are covered by one hell of a warranty: 2-year warranty on parts and lifetime warranty on frame. Manufacturers don't offer that type of warranty if they're not confident that the product will last. Most office chairs available in the market have a 30 to 90 days warranty from what we've seen. That is an important detail to note but unfortunately, it is often overlooked.
Since we are an authorized DXRacer dealer, all warranty claims are processed directly by us and processing time is usually less than 48h. We made it as stress-free as it can get.
One of the most popular reason of why our customers love our DXRacer is because of the choices available. Most office chairs don't offer options for heavy users. Fortunately, DXRacer does. Some series are made to support users up to 6'7" and up to 425 lbs. Most office chairs in the market would not be able to support that much for a long period of time. Instead of having to buy an office chair every year because it starts to get uncomfortable, having a DXRacer may last you 3 to 5+ years without any issues. In the long run, that can add up to a few hundreds of dollars saved.
If you are looking for a long-term investment and comfortable option: Yes, it is worth it
If the model that fits your body type is too expensive, it is recommended to not buy a gaming chair that would be too small for you just because it's cheaper. It's better to wait so you can purchase the right chair for you instead of having a chair that you may not fully enjoy because it's uncomfortable for you.
