Request to Linus Tech Tips

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Dear Sir/Madam of Linus Techtips,

 

Thank you for your attention! I've seen many video's of your linus tech tips, but you guys have never made a review about the gaming chairs you use. In your video's I notice that LTT uses gaming chairs from Vertagear and Maxinomic, I don't really have the money or a local shop that let me try all these gaming chairs. I would like a honest answer of your employees which chair sits really comfort for long period of time. Of course if possible to consider the build quality. Thank you in advance, since this will help me with buying a gaming chair.

 

To give you a direction, I can't really judge which of the gaming chairs below feels best to sit:

- SL2000 (vertagear)

- PL6000 (vertagear)

- MAXNOMIC® PRO-CHIEF BWE

- MAXNOMIC® COMMANDER S BWE

- MAXNOMIC® CLASSIC OFFICE

- PL4500 (upcoming rgb chair I guess maybe someone can guess how it will sit or is comparable to)

You'd be way better of just finding chairs you like and looking at the reviews people have already done on them.

That's the whole problem most of the people just buy one expensive gaming chair but can't compare to other gaming chairs in the market. LTT has tons of chairs to sit on.

chairs need to be sat in before buying

 

just last week I sat in a gaming chair and was flying around in a gaming chair at Staples store, and hey I dont give a fuck

customers past me, employees past me

wish I gave a darn

 

BTW No intention of buying any chair

but I liked the way the bottom cushion grabbed my butt

some chairs are too narrow

typical made over seas type of product

In all honesty though, like @Canada EH said, you need to sit in them yourself really. The LTT guys aren't going to be able to say what sort of chair YOU like. It's a very personal preference.

Personally my favorite chair is a Maxnomic one. They've changed their stupid naming scheme, which makes it hard to track down the exact model, but I believe it's this one: http://www.needforseatusa.com/computer_gaming_chair_leader_orange

 

With that said, you really should sit in a chair before you buy it.

An example in my office where I work we as community have an general opinion which chairs are the best, which we fight for to get to sit on.  But sadly we don't have leather/pu chairs or any gaming chairs, that's why I came to this forum to see if I could get an advise.

Yeah that's fair enough, I can get that. But as we've said (including @LinusTech) narrow down a few that you like (as you have) then sit in them before you buy. Your butt will thank you!

Don't buy a gaming chair. Buy a good office chair, they're designed for long sitting sessions. Gaming chairs make no sense, there is nothing "gaming" about them and you're just paying extra for the tag. If they are made of fake leather, which most of them will be, they will wear down and start to flake leaving shit everywhere.

 

Do not buy online, definitely go find a place that sells chairs and sit in them.


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Gaming chairs are a waste of money. You can get a good chair for $50 from an office store.

I bought a used ikea desk for 30$ and got a nice chair thrown in for free, just some random guy in the u.s. for college.

 

Deals are there for those who look.

Where I used to work bought us ones that were possibly the single most comfy thing in the world for me. It was something that looked very like the one in the link below, but it wasn't that exact one (I'm not sure where they got them from, but know they paid a lot for them). I'm not endorsing this one, in case someone buys it and it's crap, but the super comfy one did look similar.
