As more of us work from home, we are spending more time in our office chairs. Whether it is work or play, our backs are most likely feeling the number of hours we are hunched over our screens.
Enter ergonomic chairs many of which provide comfort for long hours of sitting. However, some of these can be a major investment. That’s when I discovered that I could get a gaming chair that could double as an office chair and for those gaming breaks that are essential to greater productivity throughout the day.
The first PC gaming chair I tried was the E-WIN champion gaming chair. Priced at just under $300, it offered an appealing price compared to those fancy ergonomic chairs plus it looked cool from the pictures. Here’s my review.
About E-WIN Champion Gaming Chairs
The E-WIN Champing Gaming Chairs are ergonomic gaming chairs that come with a lumbar pillow. You can choose from color combinations that include black and white, black and red, black and day-glow green, black and turquoise, and black and pink.
Features include stain-resistant 2.0 PU leather, which you can clean with a cloth yet looks and feels like real leather. The chairs also contain cold-cure foam, which is the company’s proprietary high-density foam, which feels very similar to memory foam that you might find on a mattress. The elasticity of the foam is designed to prolong the chair’s life and comfort level.
Pros and Cons
If you have read any of my product reviews then you know that, while I love gadgets, I don’t love assembling things. Some of the other ergonomic chairs I had considered looked like you needed an engineering degree to put them together. Not this one.
All I needed was an Allen key and about 15 minutes. The pieces were organized well in the box and mostly pre-assembled. Everything was labeled so I felt confident about what I was doing.
Once assembled, I found many other things to like about the gaming chair. It is designed and made with quality materials that don’t feel in the least bit cheap. The stitching and leather-like finish shows that the gaming chair is made to last. It feels like a much more expensive ergonomic chair.
The comfort level can be adjusted to fit the person sitting in the chair. It has a hydraulic height-adjustment lever like most chairs. But, it also has a reclining lever, which lets you put the chair almost to a horizontal position.
I love the armrest that adjust as well, including rotating, sliding to the left or the right, raising up and down, and pushing them forward or backward. You can even take the armrests off the chair.
In terms of cons, there is only one minor point. The lumbar and neck pillows are a bit awkward in terms of placement and feel. However, it’s not enough to make the whole chair uncomfortable.
In the Box
The box contains the chair components, including pillows. It also has a pair of gloves and instruction manual. The chair comes with a 10-year limited warranty.
