  1. They really are nice chairs. Its not all hype for why they are popular.
  2. longer seat and the padding is more dense then most of the other chairs they offer. M-series tends to be big enough for anyone 5' 8" to 6' up to 330 lbs IIRC. King is for those that are taller and/or heavier then that. Its also $30 cheaper. If you haven't already just email them questions about which is for your size and height. They had pretty good Customer Support when I got mine last year around this time. Back then their website looked sketchy, now its all professional.
  3. DXRacer M-Series. D-Series if you don't want the more adjustable arms and a less firm/dense sponge seat. Classic series looks good too if you want that one without the "Racing" look.
  4. aesthetically yes. build material vary from brand to brand. some more then others. most of the chairs on the market are clones of the Original DXRacer Chair design that they made years ago. You can tell by the Foot Base and chair mechanism they use compared to what DXRacer uses now. Go DXRacer if you can. At a glance they are the better made option, IMO. I have an M-Series its definitely worth what I paid for itself in the last year of ownership.
  5. its a toss up IMO. you'll stop caring about/messing with the RGB lights once you found a color combo you like. As far as switches go the razer ones are noitbly lighter to press then similar cherry version. But you'll forget the difference after while or not even notice if you haven't a cherry switch to directly compare to. I own a Chroma. Its a nice keyboard.
  6. I own an M-Series for about a year already. I recommend it. I sit in it on average of 6-8 hours a day. Its pretty comfort the entire time. They have a more dense/firm sponge padding for the longer sit times then the other DXRacer Series's. As soon as you open the box for one you see why its priced what it is. Their quality made. They will last as long as you take care. Maxnomic's are moslty based on older designed DXRacer chairs from what I read Online back when I bought mine.
  7. bet this will either be forgotten or be sponsored by red bull in a year.
  8. Unlock the FPS cap, it runs fine on my GTX 980. Never dips below 40FPS and Averages 60+. As for gameplay its a fun game so far.
  9. https://youtu.be/2KApp699WdE?t=1h10m59s they spend like 30 min on just Fallout 4 during the event. half was on crafting.
  10. ??? The very first thing they did in-game with the E3 demo was character creation. half the conference was on crafting.
  11. Its a pretty good deal for a game that's not even out yet. Say what you will about pre-orders but their is No doubt it will be a good game IMO.

    21:9 gaming

    That is a preference thing. I use a 25" 21:9 its not really a noticeable difference from my 23" 16:9 after you have used it for awhile. Even using forced 16:9 on it really isn't that bad with its 20" screen space with bars on each end.
  13. Computer Setup takes priority but A Good Chair should be the first additional thing to buy when possible. Assuming you sit for long hours. AVG of 5-8 HRS or more daily I assume when ppl ask about chairs they already happy with their completed setups. if your starting at nothing do your rig first. (PC/monitor + cheap KB/M.) IMO $400 for a chair is a decent amount of money for a chair, but when buying from a good manufacture It will last way longer then anything else you buy for your setup. Even the PC itself, so as long as you take care of it. My last chair lasted 10 years for example before the hydraulic piston exploded randomly one day. Only you can decide whats it worth or justify the cost. (IMO saving is always an option) their are plenty of reviews on YT about dxracer and other brands "gaming" chairs. They are usually positive because you get what you pay for. the office depot/max special's and cheap random amazon chairs can be iffy IMO. most of the reviews are from ppl that probably don't sit in them for long hours or hours longer then 2-4 average.
