This was an expensive purchase for a chair (albeit a "gaming" chair) that was a birthday present for my kid. However, the look on his face when he saw that it was a DXRacer was priceless.He had simply requested a new office chair for his homework/gaming use. I researched a LOT of office chairs and was surprised at the amount of "negative" reviews even at the higher price range. It was during the research phase that I found the DXRacer with its mostly "positive feedback". I also took into consideration when making this purchase not just the use that it would receive in the near future but, should it live up to its quality claims, this chair could follow my now 16-year-old to college. Now that's value for money should my that prove true.He has had it for a month now and practically lives in it and absolutely loves it - NO complaints whatsoever.
