Ewin RGB Gaming Desk review – Let’s get lit

Ewin 2.0 Rgb Gaming Desk 2

The Ewin Racing brand operates in the gaming space, but the majority of its products are racing-style chairs. They are a common site with video creators and streamers, whom the brand specifically targets for its marketing. Although the focus from Ewin Racing has been to put its product in front of as many people as possible, especially those who have a wide-spread reach in the gaming market, that doesn’t mean that an RGB desk like the Ewin RGB Gaming Desk also fits that marketing plan. For starters, a chair is on camera when a stream or video is shot. A desk, on the other hand, is generally something for the user to enjoy. It may or may not have functionality beyond a general gaming desk.

In the case of the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk, it functions for the sole purpose to please those who are wanting a customizable desk that also serves the purpose of a command station. And honestly, it does both of those things fairly well, albeit with a few sacrifices to functionality.

Some assembly required

When I came home to find the box for the Ewin desk sitting on my porch, I was surprised at its sheer size and weight. Most of that weight comes from the desktop itself, chiming in at 48″ (120 cm) wide and having a depth of 26.8″ (68 cm). This is important if you’re wondering whether it can support a single, dual, or even triple monitor setup. The entire desk, legs and top, weighs a little over 55 lbs (25.3 kg). So, if you’re wondering whether or not it’s sturdy — it is.

For the most part, the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk has a pretty straightforward assembly, so much so that it only comes with one skimpy page for instructions. This is great and all if you’ve got the know-how to assemble furniture with little direction. Although, I still could have used more direction on the RGB cords and setup. The desktop does house two feed-through ports from below your desk to the top for cable management.

At this point, I’m still unsure if they have more functionality to them, like working with Phillips HUE or any other third-party light system. There are two RGB wires that hang from either side of the desk. They end up connecting to a USB extension that can be plugged into your PC or a power source. This is what powers the RGB panel that runs along the sides of the desktop and the legs, emitting the color-coded light of your choosing.

Functionality

With the way the wires run on the RGB desk, though, the options to place your tower are limited if you’re powering it via USB into your PC. Even if you are not going to be setting it up this way, you still have to account for ventilation wherever your PC tower is going to sit. As mentioned, there is quite a bit of desk space to house multiple monitors. In this case, I was able to fit my rig and monitor side by side. And on a side note, if you normally have drinks on your desk, the desk comes with a swiveling cupholder that can support mugs with handles. It turned out to be utterly convenient.

I wouldn’t have normally opted for my PC to be sitting beside my monitor sideways. I recently just built into a mid-tower case with a tempered glass side, complete with ASUS Aura Sync motherboard. This was done to put my AMD RGB Wraith Prism cooler, Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM, and Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard to good use (and on display). Admittedly, I did move it around to finally arrive at the setup seen in the picture below, something that still manages to showcase its shine.

Oh, the colors

It seems like the bottom line here is that, if you’re wanting to finalize or complete your RGB setup, the Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk is most likely the last or first thing you’d pick up. For me, I already saw the prettiness that came with the Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard and light effects on my Corsair RAM. I was wanting to obtain an RGB motherboard in order to have customizability with the AMD Wraith Prism cooler. All of these products synced quite nicely together to have all the lights on my desktop dance, shine, and emit just about any color of the rainbow. The desk was really the icing on the cake for my setup.

I wasn’t in the market for a new gaming desk, let alone one that had RGB lighting. My gaming center genuinely feels like a command station now, complete with a color scheme and design that I chose. As far as I know, the Ewin desk is limited to the preprogrammed schemes, but they were close enough to the lighting that I chose on my desktop. I was relieved when everything came together and I could admire something that was customized to my tastes. Because, at the end of the day, this is where I’m choosing to wind down and spend my relax time.

Final thoughts

Once again, I find myself surprised and impressed with the offerings from Ewin Racing. The Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk is a sturdy, quality gaming desk that happens to feature RGB lights. You can let the lights dance about or simply lock them into a color of your choosing, if it matches up with your current color scheme. Ultimately, I’m happy as to how everything was finally pieced together and how it feels like it’s mine in terms of a custom gaming station.

You will have to keep in mind what you want on your desktop though; there are no shelves for your tower or drawers here. These are the sacrifices for vanity, I suppose.

Overall, if you’ve been wanting your PC’s light show to extend beyond keyboards, mice, motherboards, and RAM, then the Ewin gaming desk is where you start or end your RGB journey.

Price: $399 USD

Dimensions: 120 cm wide X 68 cm deep X 75 cm tall

The Ewin 2.0 RGB Gaming Desk has easily become a sturdy, yet, important set-piece to my gaming station. What initially intrigued me as a gimmick has become part of my lighted PC gaming station experience. It matches up well with a number of different RGB products, such as my Asus Aura Sync motherboard, AMD Wraith Prism cooler, RGB RAM, and Razer Ornata Chroma. As a fair warning, you will lose out on standard desk features, like storage, drawers, and a platform for your PC. However, the desktop offers ports to feed cables through for easy management. It’s the kind of accessory that can complete your RGB light show or be the first thing to drive you to buy more hardware with dancing lights. The end result, though, was something that felt customized to my tastes.

PROS
  • Decent color palette
  • Sturdy, wide, and comfortable design
  • Mostly easy to piece together
  • Cable management ports on both sides of the desktop
  • Swivel cupholder is a nice addition and use of space
CONS
  • Losing out on desk storage space
  • Could have done more (given the price) to offer more custom colors and patterns

EWINRACING GAMING CHAIR REVIEW – A LONG WEEKEND WELL SPENT

EwinRacing Gaming Chair Review – A Long Weekend Well Spent

EwinRacing Gaming Chairs reached out to Gigamax Games requesting a review on their Knight Series gaming chairs. They offered no monetary compensation and genuinely seemed as though they were interested in honest unadulterated feedback. After Mack spent a couple of weekends testing the gaming chair, this was his impression.

EwinRacing Gaming Chairs – Background

I am a console gamer that feels at home surrounded by pillows, blankets, and in front of a big TV a foot away from my face. The idea of a gaming chair was a little intimidating. After looking into the gaming chair EwinRacing wanted to send, that nervousness subsided a bit. It looked cool, loved the blue and black color scheme, and after recently hurting my neck the thought of sitting upright and not sinking into a couch was euphoric.

Assembly

The package arrived only a couple of days after I was notified it was shipped. Secretly, I was hoping it would come magically assembled, but that was more a testament to my lack of faith when it came to my handiness. Opening up the large package took me back a bit. I envisioned a mess of chair parts, screws, and strange components lying scattered around the box. What I received, however, was a neatly organized, logically segmented box filled with all the parts I need to assemble my very own gaming chair.

Still, I wasn’t thrilled there was a task to accomplish before I was able to get to gaming. Immediately my girlfriend and I began working to put together this piece of gaming equipment. She was on instructions and I was on assembly. The first step was to remove all the plastic from the major pieces, backrest, seat, and armrests. After an interesting few minutes of wrestling with plastic, it was time to dive in. Suddenly I was stopped in my tracks. She interrupted my eagerness by throwing a pair of gloves at me. I was perplexed. Why did they include gloves? Why where the instructions so insistent on me using said gloves. But they looked funny so I rolled with it.

Soon it became clear why these gloves came into play. There were very few sections throughout the assembly where you were asked to unscrew and re-screw some bolts. It was relatively easy and all the parts matched up beautifully but each bolt was heavily greased. The gloves allowed me to grip the bolts and avoid having grease stains on my hands for the rest of the weekend. It was a fantastic addition to the assembly kit.

Many of the parts just snapped together. The Hex Key was the only tool needed and that was included. It even came with spare parts that were labeled “spare parts” so you knew you weren’t accidentally leaving out critical components. There wasn’t much work that was needed in terms of the Hex Key and the step-by-step instructions were clear and easy to follow. Assembly took about an hour and a half in total. Some of that was spent joking around, watching stand up comedy, and not paying attention to the instructions that were being given. I was dreading assembling this chair for days but it came together without a single argument or headache.

First Impression

After the EwinRacing gaming chair was assembled, it was time to look back and see the fruits of our labor. It was a great looking chair. There’s no doubt about the design being ergonomically correct. The sleek lines and vibrant blue and deep black with just a dash of the EwinRacing logo was gorgeous.

A few seconds of enjoying the sight, I hopped on to see how it felt. It was apparent this was no cheap Stables office chair. This was a solid piece of gaming equipment. The chair even rolled well on carpet. Everything about the chair felt like it was designed for a person to spend long periods in one position and remain comfortable.

A Full Day of Gaming

There was no doubt a learning curve when it came to gaming in a chair. That was embarrassing to write but it was the absolute truth. I knew that it was better for my back but I just didn’t feel “comfortable”. I say “comfortable” because it was a different kind of comfort than what I was accustomed to. Instead of being surrounded by fluffy pillows, a cat or two, and enough blankets to build a fort, I was sitting upright and without back or neck pain.

An entire day was set aside for gaming. Strategically placed water cups and meals were located around my gaming setup to limit movement. It was on. The day was here to put countless consecutive hours on my ass and see what all the fuss was about gaming on these relatively expensive chairs.

In just two hours it became clear why people are extremely enthusiastic about high-quality gaming chairs. The seat was soft yet firm, the adjustable neck pillow is easily repositioned for maximum comfort, the loose lumbar support pillow and height-adjustable arms rests were the perfect additions to make the entire chair feel like it conformed to your body added up to a mind-blowing experience. Never thought I’d describe sitting in a chair as mind-blowing, but it thoroughly delivered a higher-level gaming experience.

I wasn’t forced to constantly change positions. The adjustable height and recline feature allowed for quick controllable adjustments without needing to stack pillows and stretch out my damaged backbone. But the obvious benefits showed themselves after spending over ten plus hours in the chair.

Of course, there were times I had to get up to use the bathroom. Couldn’t swing a Cartman move from the World of Warcraft episode. And eventually, my water cups ran dry.

After 10+ hours of gaming, sitting upright, my back and neck felt phenomenal but I wanted to lean forward a bit. I was getting wrecked in Iron Banner and felt like I needed to get into gaming mode. A majority of the day was spent playing single-player games so this need never really came up. Leaning forward, the entire chair swiveled forward as if it understood what I wanted to do. Placing my elbows to my knees became uncomfortable, fast. I was at a loss. It almost seemed like it was going to support my body perfectly but this just wasn’t doing it for me. Nearly a second after that thought, it dawned on me, “the lumbar pillow!”. I reached around to the back and placed the lumbar pillow on my legs and rested my elbows upon it. There it was. A perfect forward-leaning position and the EwinRacing gaming chair had all the components to bring it together.

Overview

After a full weekend of gaming, out of my comfort zone, sitting upright in a chair, I was sold. All the subtle little add-ons like the adjustable pillows, forward-lean (gamer mode) support and the versatility of the lumbar pillow, and the incredibly smooth-rolling wheels even on the old carpet were just icing on the cake. The substance of the chair, a firm yet soft, solid yet not overly bulky design, and sleek color scheme all made for a fantastic addition to my gaming setup. Unfortunately, I’ll need to say goodbye soon. The EwinRacing Gaming chair will be given to our featured streamer, SolidTony as a gift for his support and continued growth as a Twitch streamer. However, I sold myself. I’ll be picking up another for my personal use.

I want to reiterate. EwinRacing did not provide monetary compensation for this review. The chair was fantastic and it was the first time I gamed an entire weekend without back or neck pain. Even writing this review in my bed, I realize I should have written this sitting on the chair.

-WIN Hero Series Gaming Chair Review

Intro

It seems like not to long ago the first gaming chairs came out, I was so disinterested in them.  Why would you charge so much for a chair, it can’t be that comfortable,… can it? Last year I came to find I was so wrong and these things are incredibly comfortable, so much more than almost all of their  pc gaming chairs you can find in your local office supplies store.  With that, I introduce you to my review of the E-Win Hero Series HR-BC3D Computer Gaming Chair.

Let’s go over some of the features:

Features

  • 16mm diameter V Durable Steel Frame
    • 1.5mm thick coat to prevent rusting
  • Aluminum Five-Star Base
  • High elasticity and high quality 1.2mm thick PU Leather Surface (Polyurethane)
  • Embroidered Ewin logo on headrest and pillows.
    • Included Pillows
      • Lower Lumbar
      • Neck rest
  • High back with integrated headrest
  • 2D Armrests (Up/Down)
    • PU Surface
  • Seat Height Adjustable
  • Level Operated Back Recliner
  • Tilt lock and Tilt Control Mechanism
    • Tilt Tension control
  • 85° to 155°-degree tilting for back
  • 120MM Class-4 Gas Lift Piston
    • Supporting up to 330lbs/150kg
  • Cold Molding Foam
    • High Density Memory Foam
  • 360° Swivel
  • 3, 5 and 10 Year Warranty (Explained later in the review)

These boxes are always so big, but of course there is a big cushy comfy chair in there after all so it is to be expected.  So let’s check out the unboxing video so we can see what’s inside.

Quite a few things to go through, and I do apologize there was a manual but in the confusion, I had lost it.  Once we were approached for the opportunity for the chair, I picked the one I wanted and they started packaging everything just for me.  Towards the end, when they were about to ship it I had realized I picked the wrong one and contact them to change the chair and that’s where the mix up occurred.  They shipped me the chair I wanted, but kept the other chairs manual inside, it was the manual for the Champion Series, not the Hero Series I had the final selection on.

No worries though, later in this review I show you all how to build it, so you can use that video as a guide.

Here are links to both sets, in case you are curious.  If you are going to purchase one, stay tuned till the end of this review as I have a coupon to save you a bit of cash.

Introduction

The market for high end gaming peripherals has been booming for several years now. The trend started with mechanical keyboards which provide both tactile feedback and a variety of switch types to suit different preferences. Gamers quickly grew accustomed to expecting more from their peripherals. This trend soon spread to other peripherals including mice, webcams, headsets, and even standalone mics. Even high-end monitors that offer lower latency and higher refresh rates are now common among the PC elite. While all of these peripherals stand to improve a user’s experience, gamers often neglect the one item right under their nose: their chair. A high-end gaming chair is designed with long sitting sessions in mind and stands to improve both user’s comfort and posture.

Awareness of gaming chairs has been growing, but there’s still a far higher hesitation factor involved with ordering a gaming chair than there is with other high-end purchases. High costs play a part, but the bulky nature of the product also plays a significant role. For years, the size, shipping, and assembly requirements kept me from ordering a gaming chair. The anxiety of ordering a chair without first sitting on it was also a factor. Fortunately, the folks at E-Win made the decision for me by offering one of their premium Hero Series chairs for me to test out. After using extensively for the past month, I thought I’d share my thoughts.

What’s in the Box

The EWinRacing Hero Series gaming chair comes disassembled in a hefty box, but assembly only takes 10-20 minutes. Despite its size, I found it far easier to assemble than the IKEA chair I was previously using. A clearly worded color manual makes following along during the assembly process effortless. The adjustable armrests even come pre installed on the sides of the seat. The only step that could benefit from a second pair of hands is joining the backrest with the seat portion. E-Win chairs have sturdy steel frames which makes them heftier than generic office chairs. If you’re assembling the chair alone, it may help to place the seat piece on an elevated surface like a table before joining it with the backrest. E-Win has a convenient installation guide available on YouTube which you can reference.

Adjustable Comfort

Once assembled, it become clear that the E-Win Hero series chair has a multitude of adjustment options. The pre-installed armrests can be adjusted in height which helps since I prefer them to be low enough to slide under my desk. They can also be removed entirely for those who prefer not to use armrests. The backrest can adjusted back with the help of a lever on the right of the seat. A height adjustment lever is located on the bottom right of the seat as well. Most importantly, the included head support and lower back/lumbar support cushion can be adjusted or removed entirely. The E-Win seatback is very firm, but the two cushions balance this out perfectly. Their value is especially apparent when you lean the backseat back a bit. The firm build of the chair keeps your posture healthy while the cushions offer support for the two contact points along the back of your body. When trying to find the ideal setup for yourself, I suggest moving the cushions around a bit, it took me several adjustments to get it perfectly aligned for my height and body shape.

Memory Foam For Your Butt

The seat itself is perhaps the largest improvement over standard office chairs. My E-Win Hero Series chair came just in time for the launch of the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Battle For Azeroth and I have been sitting still playing for up to 12 hours a day. My old chair required me to make several uncomfortable adjustments to give my sore butt a rest. This often twisted my back into strange poses which I would hold for minutes at a time. Now I don’t even think about my butt while sitting. The thick memory foam seat feels like a cloud, especially after your body heat warms it up a bit.

Aesthetics

My biggest reservation when it came to gaming chairs was their aesthetic. Often streamers are seen with these chairs and they can look a bit glaring, especially in an otherwise normal bedroom or living room. If you share these concerns, know that E-Win also has an all-black chair option in their ‘Champion Series’ line. But from my experience, the blue Hero Series model I received looks much better than I thought it would. The most colorful part, the backrest, is always facing the desk and so the chair’s overall presence in a room is by no means overpowering.

Overall

Priced at $359 with free shipping, the E-Win Hero series may seem expensive, but the difference in quality over standard office chairs is substantial. For value per dollar, the chair is a bargain. The metal frame and dense foam seat look like they can last a lifetime. And just as with mechanical keyboards, once you’ve used a proper chair, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t make the switch sooner. But with all that said, there are caveats. As I said earlier, the E-Win chair is quite firm. Those who realize the value of good posture will appreciate this, but some may find the firmness to be uncomfortable. The ergonomics of the chair force a healthy posture. Sitting cross legged, for example, is difficult due to the curves on the seat. Again, this can largely be seen as a positive, but is worth mentioning for full disclosure. Those looking for a chair for gaming won’t be disappointed. Overall, the E-Win Hero Series receives top marks and comes highly recommended.

Ewin Flash Gaming Chair Review

If we were able to, us gamers would quite probably be happy to sit with a controller in hand for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Eating would be pushed to one side, and drinking to the other, as real life gave way to the virtual world and the joys that it brings.

But we’ve all been there and day long sessions need more than just a TV screen, console and controller. There needs to be comfort, and no matter how much you think your bed is the best place to lay whilst gaming, or the sofa is for lounging whilst you take the fight to the hardest Dark Souls boss, for the most intense gaming sessions you need a chair. A chair that has been designed with gaming in mind. The Ewin Flash Series Gaming chair in fact.

Ewin are relatively new kids on the block – only having decided to specialise in gaming chairs since 2016 – but they’ve already got a reputation for delivering cheap but quality products. And that is pretty much what they’ve done with the Ewin Flash Series of gaming chair.

Gaming is an expensive enough hobby as it is, with games and consoles quite happily taking up the bulk of any take home pay should you wish them to, but things get even more expensive when we take a look at the accessories that make our gaming sessions all the better. Headsets can roll into the hundreds and gaming chairs can go even higher. But Ewin are here to prove that not everything has to be super expensive to be good – and even though the white Flash gaming chair that Ewin have kindly provided looks great, it only comes in at £300. In a world motivated by squeezing every last drop from every loyal gamer, that must be commended.

Yes, I know that isn’t the cheapest price on the market, and you could quite easily pop down to your local games store and grab a considerably cheaper product. But would it be as comfortable as the Flash? I’d guess not and as far as bang for your buck goes, the Flash is right up there.

So what do we have? Well, visually Ewin have pulled one out of the bag with the white and black Flash. It comes with a durable steel frame which sees a high density memory foam base dropped onto it. This is then covered in a glorious wipe-clean PU surface to create a firm but comfortable seat that is good for many an hour of gaming.

As you would expect, the seat is fully height adjustable thanks to an easy to use lever on the underside of the seat, delivering a multitude of heights to suit your body type. My 6ft 2in 85kg frame fits in nicely and there is just enough hug from the sides of the seat to allow for comfort. That said, if I was any larger then things may well be a bit different and a little more room either side of the hips would be required.

The 4D armrests that pretty much come as standard now on many decent gaming chairs are present, and these can be raised, lowered, swivelled, rotated and placed in all manner of directions and positions. They are fairly soft too and even after sitting in the chair for a few hours at a time I have yet to find any indents where the arms are resting. I’m not sure why these armrests never seem to come covered in luxurious padding though. That would be an optimum setup in anyone’s eyes.

The Flash also allows for reclining and a swift pull of the lever on the right side of the base will see you being able to position the back rest at any adjustment between 85-155 degree angles. Why anyone would seriously consider dropping the back as far as it goes, unless you’re planning on sleeping in it, is beyond me, but the range in movement is great and it’s a cinch to set things how you like. There is also a degree of tilt to the seat base and whilst this has been troublesome to operate once you find your desired tilt it sits in place very nicely indeed.

And all that’s left to talk about after that is the five-pronged aluminium base and the casters that it sits on. But honestly, what is there to mention about those? Lovely black coated alu and large castered wheels are pretty much the norm nowadays. They work well on both carpet and hard flooring, with the slightly over-sized nature of the wheels allowing for plenty of movement.

Sat here today, does the Flash take pride of place in my gaming sessions? Well, no, but that’s because it is going up against a considerably more expensive product in the SecretLab Titan Stealth chair – something which is a bit more spongy and just a tad more comfortable in the long term gaming stakes. But that also comes in at a different price point and shouldn’t be seen as a direct comparison. It’s pretty much like comparing a Ford to a Jaguar – they both do the same thing very well, but one is just a little more luxurious.

I have to point out that Ewin have created a brilliant product in the Flash gaming chair. However, other than for styling purposes, I can’t work out any reasoning for placing the huge lumbar support cushion anywhere near the thing. With it attached, it makes the seat near on unusable and it took just a matter of minutes before I had to feed the straps through the racing loops and throw it to one side. With that removed, comfort is hugely increased and allows for any gamer to spend a good few hours pounding away with their favourite games, making it a more than attractive option for anyone wishing to get in on the gaming chair bandwagon.

It’s also fairly tricky to put together out of the box. The instruction booklet, although clear, features a set of images that are initially tricky to follow, and actually connecting the seat back to the base with the included screws isn’t as easy as it should be. You’ll most definitely require a second pair of hands in order to put this chair together – if only because holding the back rest and hunting down screw holes alone is no easy task. Other than that though, it all goes together with ease.

But at the end of the day, the Ewin Flash does exactly what Ewin have set out to do – bringing a quality gaming chair at an affordable price. It looks great, it’s comfortable to sit in, and it should help enhance any long gaming sessions. The lumbar pillow issue aside, and for the price it comes at, you should be sticking this on your shortlist right now.

 

If you want to pick up the Ewin Flash Gaming chair (or any of their chairs for that matter), and wish to save a little money, then head over to Ewin right now and use the code ‘XboxHub’ to nab 15% off the price.

EwinRacing Flash Series Ergonomic Office Chair with Pillows

In this review we are going to take a look at something a little different, that is still definitely an essential item for those who spend any time working or playing in front of a screen – a comfortable chair. We received the red and black version of the Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows from EwinRacing.com, which also has a European presence with the domain EwinRacing.eu.

The Flash Series chair is shown in the promotional image above where we see that while it has the typical profile of an ergonomic chair, it is rather sporty looking. What we can not see is that this particular model is made to support up to 330 pounds and will adjust to accomodate users well over six feet tall. Considering this is considered the “Normal” version of the Flash Series chair, and that there is an “XL” offering, EwinRacing clearly has not forgotten about the larger people in the world when developing their products. Before taking a look at the sample provided for review, let’s take a look at some published data on it, as taken from the official product page on the Ewinracing website.

Key Features:

» Chair Type: Gaming/Office Chair
» Foam Type:High Density Intergrated Foaming
» Foam Density: 60kg/m3
» Frame Color: Black
» Frame Construction: Metal
» Adjustable Armrests: 4D
» Mechanism Type: Multi-functional Tilt
» Tilt Lock: Yes
» Tilt Angle Lock: Yes
» Gas Lift Class: 4
» Chair/Seat Back Style: High-back
» Adjustable Back Angle: 85-155 Degree
» Base Type: 5-star Wide Aluminum Base
» Caster Size & Material: 3″ Caster/PU
» Supports up to 150kg / 330lbs.

The Delivery:

The chair was delivered to my front door in a fairly large box. Overall it appeared to survive the cheap unscathed, which is impressive considering the size and that it weighed in at close to seventy pounds!

Packaging and Accessories:

Opening the box we find that all of the components are well padded, and in case you had not figured out yet – some assembly is required!

Review Image
 

The image above shows that the five star base is placed on top, with plenty of bubble wrap and foam sheeting separating it from the body of the chair underneath. The below left image shows the chair back (with armrests pre-installed) is the next item to be found as we dig our way down, and the below right image shows that below that is the chair base and a cardboard box full of smaller items.

Review Image Review Image
 

Next we see all of the items out of the larger box, almost ready for assembly. First we have to see what is inside that smaller cardboard box.

Review Image
 

The box of accessories includes pictorial assembly instructions, hinge covers for where the back meets the base, all the necessary bolts (plus Allen wrenches to tighten them), five casters, the gas cylinder, the bracket where the gas cylinder meets the base – and so you feel like you’re working on a Bentley – you get a pair of knit gloves!

Review Image Review Image Review Image
 

Assembly:

In this section we will cover the assembly of the chair, but first I want to comment on the quality of the seating surfaces. The base and back are very heavy duty and the first impression given is that they are very well made. The PU leather looks great, the stitching is very well done, and all the foam padding feels great and is very thick. The first step to assembling the EwinRacing Flash Series chair is to bolt the base to the back, which requires the use of the four included Allen head bolts. The two images below show this step, and how it leaves the chair looking a bit unfinished.

Review Image Review Image
 

This unfinished look is only temporary, as there are plastic covers to screw on over the hinges, as shown in the images below. To be honest, these images show this cover on wrong, as the upper piece of plastic should be on the outside of the lower piece, and not tucked in as shown. This step was a little confusing, as the pieces provided didn’t match the pieces shown in the instructions, plus the lower piece of plastic seemed to stick out too far to do it the right way. Never-the-less, I corrected the installation on this step, and both sides were covered, so as to conceal the hinge and assembly hardware. From a distance it looks fine, and the plastic covers function just fine, but in my opinion these pieces don’t meet the same high quality standard the bulk of the chair’s components seem to have. The plastic covers are somewhat flimsy, have a cheap plastic finish, and didn’t fit as cleanly as I would have expected. Not a big deal, but considering how well done the seating surfaces and other areas were executed, I think just a bit more effort on these pieces would have paid off with an even better overall appearance.

Review Image Review Image
 

The next step is to bolt the bracket to the underside of the seat, so that the gas cylinder can be connected and so that you can raise / lower the chair while in use. The four Allen bolts required are already attached to the bottom of the chair, so you remove those, put the bracket in place with the “Front” label facing the front of the chair, and then tighten everything back up.

Review Image Review Image
 

The casters are all then pressed into their holes on the five star base, and the gas cylinder is pressed into the center hole – no tools required.

Review Image
 

The last step is to press the five star base assembly in to the bottom of the chair. It all goes together very snugly, but having a seat on your new chair will help force all of the press fit components together completely.

Review Image Review Image Review Image
 

The full assembled chair looks sharp and very sporty. I think that the Ewin logo embroidered onto three locations on the front of the chair is a bit much, and that the chair would look much nicer if at least two if the three logos were eliminated. The neck and lumbar pillows are the location of two of the chair’s logos and they both come pre-installed, but are merely attached with belts and clips, so they can be removed. Additionally, this belt system allows the pillows to be repositioned while in use, and the tension on the belts helps keep them in place, exactly where you would like them.

 

In Use:

The chair is very comfortable – I have spent hours straight in this chair and have no complaints about how it feels or how adjustable it is. You can raise/lower the total height of the chair with the gas cylinder’s lever, the seat can recline it small increments to an angle that is so laid back you’ll think you might tip over (but I didn’t), the pillows are adjustable, and even the armrests are “4D adjustable” That means they can move up/down, left/right, forward/back, and they can be rotated clockwise/counterclockwise.

The first three adjustments for the armrests are all locked and can only be actuated by depressing a button first. But, the rotation is not locked out and I find that they rotate by accident quite often. For example, using the armrests to get up may make them rotate, and pushing the chair out of the way using the armrest as a handle may make them rotate. The armrests are also not upholstered and have a fairly thin rubbery surface for you to rest on. It is not uncomfortable, but to me the quality does not match the body of the chair. Like the hinge covers, I feel the armrests are executed to a lower standard than the bulk of the chair, and really could be so much nicer.

While I have done well to keep my likeness out of my own reviews for the past 15+ years, I suppose some selfies are useful for reviewing a chair. The main point is that I have 6’2″ tall and about 225 pounds, and while I am not the biggest guy you will meet, there are plenty of places that I just don’t physically fit into – at least not comfortably. I am very comfortable in the EwinRacing Flash Series chair, and it definitely has plenty of room for even larger (taller and wider) users. I can easily find nice positions for the two pillows, and I do like that the armrests can be adjusted in so many planes. As you see me posing below as if I was gaming, know that I have dialed in the chair just to my liking and that I am definitely comfortable.

Review Image Review Image
 

The next two shots are intended to show that if you needed the chair to go higher, it definitely can. I can honestly say it is rare that my feet don’t touch the ground, unless I am sitting on a bar stool – but here my feet are a good two to three inches off the ground with the chair at full height! So, all the people over 6’6″, I’d say the Flash Series chair may be a good choice for you!

Review Image Review Image
 

Eventually, my sidekick got his turn in the chair, and I may not get it back now. At 4 feet and change and just over 50 pounds, he isn’t maxing it out in any way, but he sures does like sitting it all the same! Looking good buddy!

Review Image Review Image
 

Conclusion:
I have never reviewed a chair before, but I have sat in plenty of them, so I would say I am fairly qualified to share my opinion. The EwinRacing Flash Series chair is definitely very comfortable, and overall has a very high build quality. There is plenty of adjustability to it, and the inclusion of both a lumbar and a neck pillow are welcome touches. I also appreciate that it can accommodate such a range of user heights / weights, as I am quite often left with chairs maxed out and still wishing for a little more room! Not with this chair, as it can go so high that my feet are left dangling.

While the quality is high in general, I feel that some components (like the armrests) don’t achieve the same high standard. They are comfortable enough and very functional, but not quite as polished as the seating surfaces and the five star base. My personal opinion is that the Ewin branding on the chair is a bit overdone, as you see their logo embroidered very prominently in three locations on the front of the chair!

 

The Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows can be purchased directly from EwinRacing.com or EwinRacing.eu, and in US Dollars the price is a rather lofty $379 (US)! That is quite a price tag for an office chair, but you do not have to pay that much since they currently have a promotion where the code XMAS will take off 25%, bringing the total down to $284 (US). I assume the code XMAS will expire sometime soon after the holidays, but when that happens you should still be able to use code BIGBRUIN, which will take 15% off. Considering that the shipping box weighed in at almost seventy pounds, it is very appealing that they also offer free shipping! $284 is still more than I have paid for any of my previous office chairs, but the Flash Series chair definitely has more to offer and is much more comfortable.

In the end, the EwinRacing Flash Series ergonomic office chair with pillows earns the Bigbruin.com “Recommended” award.

Recommended
Pros:

» Overall very high build quality
» Very comfortable
» Highly adjustable to make sure you can make it suit you
» At 6’2″ and 225lbs, I am nowhere near maxing out the height and weight capabilities of this chair

Cons:

» Some components don’t quite match the overall high quality
» Ewin branding is overdone

E-Win Flash Normal Series FLC Ergonomic Office Gaming Chair Review

It has been said in the past that I’m a little tight with money. Hardware, peripherals, the 2DS – if there was a cheap version of something, it was good enough for me. My last chair was from Costco, and cost about £150. I forget what brand it was, or if it even had a brand. As I say, I needed a chair, and it was good enough.

When E-Win got in touch about their gaming chair, I’ll admit my curiosity was piqued. There are no shortage of gaming chairs, but being extremely frugal I’ve of course never tried one of those: I was happy to try E-Win as my first one. They sent over one from the Flash range, and given my measurements they decided the Normal size would be best. 183cm and 91 kg, in case you wondered.

Being a chair, it arrived in an absolutely huge box. I could have comfortable shipped two of my kids off in it – the non-tween ones. It was packaged neatly, and there was just enough padding to keep it in one piece.

You get gloves, the back, the seat, feet, middle pole and five wheels, as well as three screws and two end caps. Oh, and two hex keys, because two of the screws are slightly smaller than literally every other screw… Yes, I said gloves, they’re to stop you getting your new chair sticky while you assemble it. And probably in case a part nips your skin…

Assembly is pretty easy, and since most of the screws are already in place, you just have to unfasten them and put things in their correct position. It took me about half an hour with following the clear instructions. I had a little trouble with getting the angle right with one of the screws, which ate into my time.

Once constructed, the Flash is very stable. I mean really – I pulled the handle and leaned back in one smooth motion, and my wife burst out laughing because she thought I was about to topple over backwards. Yeah, and you judged me for talking about putting my kids in a box, didn’t you? Anyway, whilst in full recline I felt totally safe. Ironically, if you lean forwards on the chair and sit on the edge of the seat, it does tip forwards, so don’t pick things up off of the floor in front of you.

However, due to the range of movement in the arms and all of the buttons attached to them, they do feel pretty wobbly. I suppose if they were too stiff they would be more difficult to move, but it doesn’t feel great.

What surprised me most was how high the Flash is. On it’s lowest setting, it’s only just below what my old chair was on the highest. At it’s highest, my toes don’t even touch the floor, and I pretty much have to tiptoe to get up onto it. Having completed a Health & Safety course years ago, I remember that your eye line should be with the top of your monitor. Well, thanks to this chair’s lowest setting, my eyes are there.

I think the only thing I haven’t mentioned yet are the two cushions which came with the Flash. There’s one near the top for your head, and a larger, firmer one for your back. Unfortunately, because it’s adjustable, I don’t really know where to put it. Where is your “lumbar”, anyway? It has aided my posture, though, so I’m not too upset.

For the week that I’ve had it, E-Win’s Flash has been firm and comfortable, no matter if I’m sitting, lounging or lying in it. The fabric covering it is like a soft faux leather, which is better than real faux leather (is that a thing?) in that I don’t have to peel my skin off of it when wearing shorts and sat with my leg beneath me.

I was prepared to complain loudly about anything I found wrong with this chair, and I honestly have. It spins smoothly, the wheels are nice and chunky to allow it to glide across the carpet, and it’s comfortable when sat in for extended periods of time. I really like the Flash E-Win Racing gaming chair, and feel good in recommending it.

EWin Racing Flash Series XL Gaming Chair Review

INTRODUCTION

 

ewin racing flash xla

Just like with most gaming peripherals like keyboards, mice, pads, headsets and even LCD screens ergonomic bucket chairs have also flooded the market (perhaps a little faster than we were expecting). However although there are countless models for people to choose from that have different shapes, features and colors there aren’t that many actually aimed towards larger people and that’s not really hard to tell since out of our 12 gaming chair reviews only 2 are really aimed towards such consumers. Now as many of you are well aware currently most gaming peripherals manufacturers have released such products and although not all of them actually make their very own gaming chairs (thank OEM manufacturers for that) it still would be best if such models were not as hard to come across. EWin Racing may not be the very first gaming chair manufacturer to come in mind but they offer an entire line of gaming chairs designed to cater to the needs of larger people called the Flash Series XL and with us we have their brand new black and red model.
EWinRacing Chair was newly founded in 2016 after being a leader OEM office chair manufacturer. With the development in design and research, we strive for a professionalization in gaming chair field. Even more in order to bring you a healthier and relaxing environment we will continuously pursue humanism in design and manufacturing ergonomic gaming chairs. What’s more our strict quality inspection process and standard ensures you a better chair for better life. Visit www.ewinracing.com for more information on our products.

What makes the Flash Series XL stand out from most gaming chairs in the market today is its target audience since its frame was designed for people up to 2 meters tall and 300Kg heavy (89cm tall backrest with 57cm wide seat). Unfortunately although the Flash Series XL line does feature a reinforced steel frame (15mm in thickness) since it uses the same class-4 gaslift as with the rest of their models the maximum supported weight (seat/backrest included) is actually no more than 150Kg. Other features include a PU leather cover, foam density of up to 60Kg/M3 (obviously for the seat), 4 directional adjustable armrests (height/position/orientation), removable head and lumbar pillows, 70mm nylon caster wheels (EWin says 3 inch ones but these are actually 70mm and not 75mm in diameter), backrest adjustment (up to 155-160 degrees) and the somewhat classic tilt/rocking (up to 12 degrees) and height adjustment mechanism we find with most desk chairs.

SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES

PACKAGING AND CONTENTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

ewin racing flash xl 1t

EWin Racing ships the Flash XL gaming chair inside a large box that has their logo on all sides.

 

 

The chair parts were packed extremely well as you can see from the above picture.

 

 

The 5-star aluminum base was placed at the top of the box so we took that out first followed by the backrest which has both removable pillows attached.

 

 

The large seat was next (the 4D armrests are already attached).

 

 

Next we took out the five 70mm caster wheels, instructions manual, large size gloves, two Alen keys, three small round taps and the two plastic side covers.

 

 

EWin packs the typical butterfly tilt/rocking and height adjustment mechanism with the Flash Series XL so that came out next along with 3 Allen screws and the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover.

ASSEMBLY

 

 

 

 

 

 

ewin racing flash xl 8t

Once again we started assembly of the chair by mounting the 70mm caster wheels to the 5-star aluminum base.

 

 

It’s the 3rd time we’ve received a gaming chair with large caster wheels.

 

 

Placing the class-4 gaslift with its plastic cover on the 5-star base was the next step.

 

 


The base of the seat has a total of three green elastic bands for increased support.

 

 

As you can all see each 4D armrest is attached to the seat with no less than 4 Allen screws.

 

 

Mounting the butterfly mechanism requires a total of 4 Allen screws as seen above.

 

 

To mount the backrest onto the seat you will have to use two Allen screws on each side (a small opening is placed between the two Allen screws).

 


After that you will need to place the plastic covers and the screw taps again as seen above.

 

 

The upper body is now complete and I have to admit that it looks very nice.

 

FINISHED LOOKS

 

ewin racing flash xl 19t

The Flash Series XL gaming chair looks very good and is actually among the top 3 chairs to arrive in our lab with as much foam density.

 

 

The PU leather used may not compete with the one used in the X-Comfort by Thermaltake or with the one of the EPIC by Noblechairs but it’s still very good.

 

 


The company logo is placed on both the head and lumbar pillows.

 

 


The armrests can be height adjusted from 29cm all the way up to 36.5cm.

 

 

Just like all 4D armrests the top can move forward, backwards, left, right and diagonally to suit your style.

 

 

This is the rear of the Flash Series XL gaming chair.

 

 

EWin uses a head pillow that features a clip, not something we see a lot.

 

 

Although the backrest doesn’t fall all the way (180 degrees) still it does fall up to 155-160 degrees and thanks to the good amount of padding it’s very comfortable.

 

CONCLUSION

 

 

ewin racing flash xlb

We first heard of EWin Racing quite recently but after checking their Flash Series XL gaming chair we have a pretty good idea as to why they’ve been the OEM go to manufacturer by some popular gaming peripheral companies. You see the Flash Series XL is not only one of the two largest gaming chairs to ever reach our lab but it also features a very good level of quality, plenty of padding (foam density), large caster wheels, reinforced steel frame, 4D adjustable armrests and its backrest can drop up to 155-160 degrees. Unfortunately by using the classic butterfly tilt/rocking mechanism the chair doesn’t feel as sturdy as it would had EWin Racing used the Z-support tilt/rocking mechanism found in many high-end models so we really hope they will eventually start using that as well. Oh and did we mention that the Flash XL series is available in several different colors and designs? Check the above picture for some of them.
EWin Racing claims that their chairs are affordable compared to their competition but after checking the price tag of the Flash Series XL Gaming Chair it doesn’t seem to be quite right (some of their other models however are quite affordable). To be more specific you can currently get the Flash Series XL model for USD429 inside the USA (EWin USA) and 389Euros inside the EU (EWin EU) a price tag which is not that far off from let’s say that of the X-Comfort by Thermaltake. The good news is that the Flash Series XL is taller, wider and has more padding than most models we’ve received so far thus it’s more ideal for large people so at least for them this is the obvious way to go. Overall thanks to its size, foam density and features the Flash Series XL gaming chair is actually a very good choice for large people which is why it gets our Golden Award.
