Playseat Executive RaceSeat Gaming Office Chair Review

Gaming chairs have always been a bit of a luxury item, unless you are a hardcore gamer chances are if you buy one it might end up either being stowed away in storage or become part of your permanent furniture. This is where the Playseat Executive RaceSeat Gaming Office Chair comes in. This chair offers you all the fun of a FlightSeat, or RaceSeat while coupling it with standard office chair functionality all of the cost of a middle range office chair price. I am currently sitting on a $1400 office chair and it is a nice chair, good support, keeps my back straight but the honest truth is that it is overpriced and it does little more then hold me up. Let’s get a good look at the Playseat Executive RaceSeat Gaming Office Chair and see if this will be the be-all-end-all of office chairs in our future:

Conclusion:
 
I can already hear a lot of you saying “$489! That’s insane!” Chances are you picked your office chair up at Walmart or some other boxed store and have never gone out and looked at how much a quality office chair can cost. The equivalent to the comfort and functionality of the Playseat Executive RaceSeat Gaming Office Chair would easily run you into the $800 area and it would not have the ability to use a gaming wheel, flightstick, or prop your laptop on. This chair doubles as a desk for your laptop and would be great for anyone in a confined apartment, dorm room, or getting a couple of them and setting up a LAN party in your bedroom. Like I said before a gaming seat is a luxury and may not be for everyone but as far as price goes, these chairs are built like tanks, comfortable, customizable (modular design), and look awesome!

Would I recommend this product? Yes, if you are in the market for a gaming seat or an extremely comfortable office chair then the Playseat Executive RaceSeat Gaming Office Chair is the best bet for you.
