You can see my old green chair in the photos for comparison. I purchased this chair, I didn't receive it as a review unit.

It has a few minor issues. The side covers don't seem to fit right and broke when I tried to install them. Not sure if they sent me the right ones or not.

It comes with a lumbar support pillow and a headrest pillow, I'm not sure I will end up using either one, they seem to get in the way. Other than that, it's a nice chair. Not for a wide body though, it is like a Formula 1 seat or a bucket seat in a car and if you were much larger than me you wouldn't fit in the chair at all.

Nice office man. Chair isn't my style, but it looks comfortable (and the colors fit). Got the same coffee mugs as you. They're the best.

Pricey chair, very nice.

Is it just me or is one arm rest larger than the other?

I have the Red one, a Blue one and the 60 GB fattie in the closet with the yellow light of death error.

I use the red one for games, the blue to stream video. I have the red controller, blue controller, gold controller and pink controller. When I got the pink one my wife was like, "That's for your daughter, right?" and I'm like, "Suuure it is."

It's just the angle from holding the camera.

I've had that giant desk since I moved to Arizona, so if it seems a little ugly I'm just not getting rid of it no matter what. The entire thing is wood and it weighs several hundred pounds. It's pretty beat up, but I just can't get rid of it because I've had it forever.

It is so old that the drawers all fell apart and I had to nail them all back together a few years ago. You can see the nails from the front. Guess I should have just used wood glue, but once fixed with nails they aren't falling apart again! Ha.

Above my desk is some new shelves with all my LEGO.

I don't have anything up on the walls because I moved from one room in the house to another, so I took all my high-end Batman stuff and put it in my office at work.

I never got into the racing seat aesthetic that is so popular with YouTubers. I sat in a bunch of different models at PAX East a few years ago, and they were not comfortable at all.

I've also tried the very expensive Herman Miller and SteelCase chairs, which also sucked (and cost over $1000), so there's that. I guess I'll be sticking with my $100 hand-me-down Staples chair that's duct-taped together for a few more years.

Very nice! I went with a DX Racer chair a few years back and still love it! Nice setup, too! Looks similar to the IGX Gaming Command Center ... hahaha!

I got myself a new high-end new chair recently too in a similar vein. An AK Racing "gaming" chair with the lumbar and neck support pillows and the racing car bucket seat. You'll be surprised how much you miss that neck pillow if you start using it then all of a sudden it goes missing.

I'm not morbidly obese but I'm a margin over optimal in the waist and butt area and don't have a problem sitting in the chair but the standard office chairs, even the really nice ones kept having piston problems so the chairs would slowly, slowly lower and have to be raised up. I got tired of it and the pistons in these are guaranteed to not have that problem for 5 years. The last computer chair I bought was a pretty nice plushy executive office chair for $250 and lasted all of 2 years before the piston started the slow leak of hell. And I just can't find good comfy ways to sit on the Aeirons and such. Something about the hard plastic on the seat and it not being flexible at all. We have them at work and they sort of suck. This one, on the other hand, has cushions as part of the "racing" bucket chair, so is a lot more forgiving to different sitting styles. Like if I want to tuck a leg under the other leg.

One nice surprise is the damn chair came with some white cloth gloves to assemble with and it was packed like a boss. It was a premium experience from start to finish!

The desk looks like one I have too; some dark oak dealio except the better part of the center of mine has a nice leather inset. But yeah, it's so heavy I pretty much avoid moving it between places in the room, much less rooms or houses. Yours is also cleaner.
