For games that are usually played for a lengthy period of time- whether on a PC or Console, the need for an adequate support for the back can not be overemphasized. Game enthusiasts who love racing games, happen to be the most conscious about this essential need.
In recent times, there has been the emergence of some game features known as ‘Game Chairs’. These chairs are known for their uncommon flexibility, and some are built to provide support to certain areas. Amongst the makers of Game Chairs, GT Omega Racing have successfully made the ‘game chair’ business their own. Their modern Pro Racing Office Chair is a classic example; going beyond providing just flexibility and ease. It is specifically built to offer comfort and direct support to the spine and back, with an improved range of flexibility.
We were lucky enough to contacted and offered to make a review on the Pros and Cons of the GT Omega Pro Racing Office Chair, so as to ascertain if all the hype and the hefty price tag are justified, considering its performance and durability.
Well, speculations about the amazing comfort this chair provides have been confirmed as true. Fitted with special back-bone cushion support, and structured to embrace and absorb the entire back feature, it also has a cushion for headrest. Both supports- the back and head cushions are detachable and easy to manipulate, depending on the desire and posture of the gamer. This feature sure guarantees a great experience during its use.
The Pro Racing Office chair just beat its markers here. Structured to allow for up to 120-degree re-orientations in either of opposite directions, it also has well up to 50cm height adjustment capacity via a gas spring system. The hand rests too are not left out, as they are detachable and equally adjustable. For these reasons, this gadget just stands out from the rest of the pack.
One factor that is very vital to gamers- especially racing game enthusiasts is the firmness of the chair. One way this firmness was achieved in this gadget was by making room for detachable, stability add-ons at the cost of £9, to limit the embarrassing movement of the chair wheels during game sessions. Also, the chair is designed with a tilt-lock system to ensure that even the worst tiltings do not have effects.
Unfortunately, pictures do not tell the real picture: the live chair is quite a wonder to behold! The colour combo of green and black leather with a Steel base is quite fascinating; and despite the Black colour being more prominent, the green is also splattered all over the structure, giving it an exquisite look.
Well, near-perfect as it may appear, the Pro Racing Chair actually has some drawbacks. We list the pluses and minuses of this famous gadget below.
· Stylish Design
· Between 90 and 120-Degree Backward/Forward Reclination
· Tilt Lock System
· Detachable Cushions
· Stability add-ons
· Spine and back-bone Support
· Over 110 kg weight capacity
· Assembling it can be quite confusing
· Cables usually get mixed up
Well, that’s it. The Pro Racing Office chair is just built for the kill. The cost may be quite high, but so are its tendencies at ensuring maximum comfort and a thrilling experience while gaming.
The exquisite style of the Chair makes it stand out from all other gaming chairs. Fit for a variety of uses and at different times, the only challenge yet may be the occasional entanglement of the earphone cables situated around the detachable hand rests.
However, one area needs considerable attention. The assembling of the chair is usually very confusing. Though it comes with a User manual- which is uncommon for game chairs, one who successfully couples the chair together always does so with a significant amount of stress.
That aside, this gadget definitely offers good value for the money.
