I spend a lot of time sitting in at my computer gaming; I also do a bit of streaming about four days out of the week. After about a year of doing this I finally realized that the thin, lack of cushion office chair that I was using was taking a toll on my neck and my back. I’d get up having aches and pains in my lower back, as well as my neck. My monitor sits a little high up on my desk so I guess I was straining my neck a bit from looking up to much.
The office chair that I was using before wasn’t even high enough to reach the back of my neck and give me any kind of support. A few of my co-workers were having a hard time believing that I was having neck pain and back pain from sitting all day, but I told them that it was because of the chair that I was using. I mean, this chair had hardly any cushion at all whatsoever. I actually purchased it second-hand so it was a cheap and affordable chair. However, after a year of suffering from the discomfort from sitting is the low quality, cheap chair, I decided that it was time for something that would be better on my neck, back, and butt.
Ewin Flash XL Gaming chair – Out of the Box
The gaming chair arrived and the box was heavier than expected. It took 2 of us to bring it upstairs to begin the unboxing. We did have to do a bit of assembling with the 3 largest pieces of the chair since it was disassembled in order for it to fit properly inside of the box. So it took me maybe five to ten minutes tops to install the base legs into the seat part of the chair and then install the back of the chair to the base.
After putting the parts together, I sat down on the chair immediately just to get a good feel of the quality of the chair. Man, oh man, let me tell you,…I could just fall asleep in this chair. I’m not going to lie, I have already fallen asleep in this chair a few times after a long day at work or after a long night of gaming or streaming.
So, the posture support is simply off the charts! I can seriously feel just how well this chair straightens my posture. I mean, it offers all the support I need, and the neck pillow and lower back pillow work really well at adding that extra cushion that you need to support your lower back and neck. The cushion pillows are nice and soft, and they have memory foam in them which I like. Sometimes I get a little hot while playing an intense game but the cushioned pillows keep me nice and cool. I feel like the posture that the good posture effect that this chair has had so far on my back has helped out a lot! I don’t even have the back, neck, or butt pain that I was having before from the old office chair that I used. This chair is truly a top notch quality chair.
The positives I get from using this chair
I’ll just say that I’m pretty happy that I didn’t settle for something cheap. Out of the two months that I have owned this gamer chair I’ve been able to comfortably sit and game, stream, and watch movies from my computer. I even take this chair into the living room and watch my flat screen television sitting in it; I don’t use my recliner anymore because that’s just how comfortable this chair is. So here is a summary of the characteristics that I like about this chair:
• The chair is EXTRA comfortable to sit on
• It’s a very sturdy chair
• The seating is made of memory foam
• It has a variety of adjustment mechanism on it
Since I have only had the chair for two months, I can’t quite say that the chair will last a lifetime but from the quality I have experience so far I’m pretty sure that this chair will last a pretty long time.
If I could pick anything about this chair that is a con I would say it would be the cost of the chair. While it is true that you get what you pay for, I paid a little over 400 bucks for the chair. It’s not really a price tag that many people are looking to pay, but I will tell you this! It’s pretty worth the price that you pay for it.
I was honestly prepared to pay a pretty penny for a nice quality chair because I knew that I was going to be getting lots of use out this thing. I’m actually using the chair more than what I expected too. I’m just saying it’s quite worth the price. You’ll most likely find yourself sitting in it just for the heck of it, because of how comfortable it is!
I can suggest searching online for the best deals, but when I purchased the chair there was a sale going on so I actually got a good discount.
It’s not often that I have come across a chair like this one at the quality that I’m getting out of it. I think it’s probably safe to say that this is the most comfortable chair that I’ve ever sat in.
What makes this gamer chair so great?
Everything about this chair is simply awesome, I really like the color of the chair; the black with the blue accenting that I mentioned earlier.
4D Armrest Adjustments
One of the other features I really like about my Ewin Flash XL chair is that there is a 4D armrest adjustment feature. My arms are pretty long so it’s nice that I have the option to click the button the arm adjustment function and push the armrests out a little. It actually helps me to grip my computer mouse better when I am playing online.
The arm rests can be adjust clockwise, counterclockwise, and vertically. This is an awesome function that I’ve never seen on any other type of office chair, and I really like it. If you’re a gamer the armrest features are really useful because they help you position your arms and your hands in the right pose for playing your online games.
The height of the chair is adjustable which I also like since I’m pretty tall and my computer screen sits up a bit high. The chair that I had before didn’t really adjust high enough for me. I like the fact that this chair has a lot more of a range in height adjustment which makes it perfect for pretty much anyone of any height to use. It’s great that it is customizable and versatile in this way. I think this is also part of the reason I haven’t really had neck pain since using this chair.
Raising the height
Lowering the height
For lowering the height on the chair you just sit on the chair to add weight and pull the lever so that the height goes down. Let go of the lever when you have reached the appropriate height. This feature wasn’t too hard for me to figure out.
Reclining the seat
What made it so easy for me to fall asleep in this chair was the fact that this chair has the most amazing reclining mechanism. The old office chair that I used didn’t recline at all so this one is a true dream to have with this feature. Don’t be surprised if you decide to buy this chair, if you fall asleep in it; it’s that awesome.
All in all, the Ewin Flash XL gaming chair has some superb features, and you’ll definitely get a lot of use out of it!
