DXRacer Review: The Essential and Vital Information About the Brand

DXRacer is one of the most popular brands of gaming chairs, and with good reason! Every gamer has a different body size. Some players are tall, and some are short. Others gamers are skinny while some have a bit more bulk to them. No matter what their body type, though, they should be able to find a comfortable chair.

When most people think of gaming accessories, they think of the peripherals -- gaming mice like the Razer Naga, keyboards like the BlackWidow, and this ridiculously expensive (and powerful) Alienware Area 51. 

What people often overlook is their comfort as they are tackling a new raid for eight hours or working on their headshot game.

DX Racer Gaming Chairs

DXRacer chairs are leaps and bounds above your typical office chair where comfort is concerned. The manufacturer makes the chairs from quality materials. Better yet, they're incredibly comfortable and easily adjustable.

In fact, the chairs can be adjusted down to 130 degrees. You can also lock the chair at any point, so you're comfortable no matter how you like to sit. You can also raise the armrests. The DXRacer chairs feature high backs to enhance comfort further and promote good posture.

The company offers a good deal of selection where color is concerned, so you can always find something that looks good with your other decor. When you're facing down a bloodthirsty enemy squad, there's no room for compromise. Why compromise on comfort?

So which DxRacer chair is right for you?

The DXRacer Valkyrie series is available on Amazon, and it is well worth the cost. The Valkyrie is huge. Its solid metal frame and high back feel bulky right out of the box. But that's what you're paying for -- a solidly-constructed chair that will withstand whatever you throw at it.

DXRacer recommends the Valkyrie for anyone up to 180 pounds. It is well-padded with high-density foam and covered with beautiful, comfortable leather style vinyl.

As previously mentioned, the seat adjusts between 90 and 130 degrees, and the armrests can be raised or lowered to whatever is suitable for you. The seat rests on a badass-looking spider base with durable 3-inch wheels.

It comes with lumbar and neck pillows to further enhance comfort. If you want to adjust the height, the chair features a gas lift that will ensure you're well within your comfort zone.

Is it worth dropping almost 400 bucks? That's up to you, but there's nothing bad that can be said about this chair.

Pros

  • Awesome chair

Cons

  • Some people had trouble assembling it

There are many DXRacers, but this one is mine. I bought my F-Series in early 2015 and described it as "pure happiness." Since then, this chair has suffered thousands of hours of abuse. I like to sit on my knees and move around a lot. While cheaper office chairs I have owned in the past would creak and moan in protest at the slightest movement, my F-Series chair held its own.

It wasn't until May 2018 that the first part died. I wasn't sure if it was the hydraulic piston or the tilt mechanism, so I bought both from Amazon. DXRacer recommends that you replace both at the same time anyway. I could have purchased replacements from the company itself for around the same price.

But I missed my chair and wanted them within a few days. They fit perfectly, and I was back to sitting in my still perfectly comfortable Formula Series chair within 20 minutes of the boxes hitting my porch.

If you manage to break these same parts within two years, DXRacer has a limited warranty on most chair parts. If you miss out on the warranty, don't worry, it only cost me a few bucks to make my DXRacer like new again.

The F-Series isn't as flashy as many of the other DXRacer chairs, but it's perfectly serviceable if you want a chair that will last you a long time and will keep you comfortable.

After years of hard use, the vinyl is starting to crack where my knees usually rest, but the chair is otherwise in superb condition. If you weigh more than 180 pounds and are taller than 5 feet 9 inches, you should probably check out another model. If not, you can find it on Amazon.

Pros

  • Less Expensive than all comparable models

Cons

  • The base is plastic

No products found.

The Racing Series is much like the F-Series but features a fuller seat for gamers who need that little bit of extra space.

It also features turnable armrests and a higher back to support players up to 5 feet 11 inches tall. DX Racer recommends this chair to people 180 pounds or less.

Like pretty much every DXRacer, it features a sturdy steel frame and quality leather style cover.

It's a little pricey, but it's an excellent chair that will leave you with little to no back pain even after a 12-hour gaming session.

Available on Amazon.

Pros

  • Perfect gaming chair that support great posture

Cons

  • Expensive

Got a bit of bulk to you? Then the King series is for you. This chair is super-wide and can accommodate gamers up to 275 pounds and 5 feet 9 inches tall. Its 4D adjustable armrests ensure that your arms are resting not only at the perfect height but the right angle as well.

It is the widest model of chair DXRacer makes, so if you need the extra space, you can be sure it's there.

You deserve something that's fit for a king -- and this is the perfect throne from which to lay waste to your enemies.

Pros

  • This is a very comfortable and supportive chair

Cons

  • Some buyer say has a loud creaking noises any time you move any part of the chair.

The Sentinel series is for gamers who have even more bulk to them. This chair can accommodate you if you're up to 325 pounds and 6 feet tall. It's not quite as wide as the King series, but it still provides maximum comfort if you are a larger individual.

While this chair is built for larger individuals, it manages to stay strong thanks to its solid metal frame and heavy-duty base.

The high-density shaping mold interior ensures maximum comfort no matter who you are.

Pros

  • It's comfortable for both my back and my neck

Cons

  • None so far

Are you extra large? Then you need an extra large gaming chair. This massive beast lives up to its "tank" name. It can accommodate gamers up to 425 pounds and 6 feet 1 inch tall.

The Tank series features 90 degrees 4D adjustable arms and a strong aluminum base. That ensures that it won't fall apart quickly under regular use -- a problem many larger individuals face with standard computer chairs.

If you buy this chair, be warned that it weighs over 75 pounds, so you will probably need help getting it up a flight of stairs. You may even need help assembling it. They also cost a lot of money, but it'll be worth it.

Pros

  • This chair and the materials are of top quality and appear to be built to last

Cons

  • The arms/armrests are not as solid as the rest of the chair

You can think of the Elite series as the F-series for the office. It's designed for people up to 5 feet 7 inches tall and no more than 150 pounds. The design is less flashy than the F-Series or any of the other gaming chairs, but that's the point. Its minimalist feel will be perfect no matter where you are at.

If you're sitting at a computer for hours a day, this chair will serve you well whether you're headshotting n00bs or discussing the benefits of a life insurance package with a prospective client. Or both. 

You can totally do both if you're on the phone. Don't tell HR, though.

The Drifting series is excellent for those who can't quite fit into the Elite series. If you have a smallish frame and are 5 feet 9 inches or under, you're going to feel very nice in this chair.

Like other DXRacer chairs, this has a durable metal frame and leather style vinyl.

It also comes with a comfortable headrest and lumbar cushion to ensure that you are just as comfortable at work as you are at play.

You can buy this one on Amazon.

Pros

  • Chair sports an adjustable angle and height, a headrest cushion and lumbar cushion

The Work Series is for people who aren't short or skinny enough for the Elite or Drifting series.

The maximum height for this chair is 5 feet 8 inches.

If you're taller than that, you'll want to move along to another model. 

It's more elaborate than the Elite series, but that's OK. If you're spending this much on a chair, people should know that you care that much about your comfort.

Pros

  • Patent race car seat design with higher backrest to support neck and spine

Cons

  • This chair just doesn't adjust upwards far enough
