What’s the Point in Gaming Chairs? | Ewin Champion Series Gaming Chair Review!


I never understood the appeal in gaming chairs,
but now that I’ve been using one I actually get it. Hello everyone, my name is Adam and welcome
to TimeLag Gaming! Look I know racing gaming chairs are such
a cliche but they’re a cliche for a reason. I use to never want to get a gaming chair. I never understood it. Then I finally sat down in one at the end
of last year and that made me want to get one. I was going to get one on Black Friday but
decided to put it off. Then E-Win reached out to me and sent one
to review! I’ve done a lot of research on different
brands of gaming chairs and the good and bad of these cliche racer style seats, so in this video I’m going to review this
premium E-Win gaming chair and break down if gaming chairs are worth it in general! If you do a lot of sitting and you’ve got
a chair you like and are comfortable in, then there’s not much point in getting a gaming
chair. But if you’re like me and use some dinky
chair from Ikea that kills your back and you dread sitting in… then you might want to
consider getting one. Gaming chairs are designed after race car
seats and that’s what gives them a unique look and feel. I myself sit in a chair a lot for editing
videos, live streaming, and of course gaming. I use to have a nice $100 office chair, it
was sort of comfortable, super bulky and I couldn’t focus in it. Also it wasn’t that ergonomic, I just didn’t
like it and I ended up selling it on OfferUp. Then more recently I’ve been using a simple
Ikea chair and I get super uncomfortable after 30 minutes. But now with this E-Win Champion Series Gaming
Chair I can be comfortable for hours on end! So let’s get into the review! The assembly is fairly straight forward although
the pictures on the instructions were a little confusing at first because it was showing
a different model. I also read them in the wrong direction and
installed the seat backwards at first. But it was also midnight and I was super tired. Most of it already comes preassembled you
just got to attach the back of the chair to the seat and then the seat to base. The box it came in did a good job protecting
it and there was no issues there. It was actually easier to put together then
my old office chair. With that one you had to attach the back of
the chair to the seat by connecting the arm rests to both pieces and it was really tricky. The E-Win was much easier and it comes with
all the necessary tools you need, along with extra pieces. You also get these white gloves to help protect
it during assembly. Moving on, this champion series chair has
all the highest end features. It has Prime PU leather, Cold Cure foam, a
sturdy metal frame and base, 4D Armrests, 155 degree adjustable backrest, multi tilt
with locking, height adjustment, lumbar support and head pillows. E-Win Gaming Chairs also come in tons of different
sizes, styles, colors and prices to fit you and your budget. The leather is a high quality synthetic that
is designed to look and feel like leather while being extremely strong and stain resistant. Synthetic leathers are very common on all
office chairs but this leather is actually really nice. I remember on my previous office chair it
had cheap thin leather that stained easy and wore down fast. On the E-Win its nice and thick, has a real
feeling texture and is much stronger and resistant to wear. The cold cure foam is very comfortable, it’s
very dense while also providing great cushioning. It has some good give to it but its not like
the super cushy office chairs that absorb you in then then the foam wears out and gets
thin. I prefer this much nicer foam as it’s comfortable
and relaxing while gaming but rigid enough that you can focus up when you want to get
work done. The foam is also molded similar to a seat
in a race car so that it sort of hugs your sides and has a high back which I really like. The frame within the chair is made out of
thick steel and the base is made of aluminum. Lots of other gaming and office chairs use
plastic for the base and thinner steel for the frame. The armrests can be adjusted in 4 ways. You can move them up and down, side to side,
forward and back, and you can swivel them to adjust the angle. These armrests are also very secure. In my house we have another office chair and
the armrests look similar but they are very loose and don’t stay in place. And despite how they look, the tops of the
armrests on the E-Win aren’t hard plastic but a softer material that has some give,
so they are fairly comfortable. However I actually don’t like this style
of armrest in general and I ended up taking them off, but I’ll get into that later. One of the features I love about the chair
is the 155 degree adjustable backrest. This essentially has a car style lever where
you pull it up and change the angle to whatever is comfortable. This free range of tilt is so nice and if
you want to just lay back and relax it tilts all the way back just like PewDiePie’s chair. Also when you lay back you feel secure, not
like it’s going to fall over. The adjustable angle is such an important
feature for me because when I’m working I like to have a very straight upright position
so I can focus. And when I’m gaming I like to have it tilted
a little bit so I can relax. The ability to change that angle to whatever
you want is amazing! To go along with this the chair has a tilting
ability that lets it naturally tilt back more depending on how much you lean. This can also be locked so the chair doesn’t
move at all. And of course you have your standard height
adjustment to raise or lower the chair. I’ve also heard that the range of vertical
adjustment is better on the E-Win than with other brands. And lastly the chair features a lumbar support
pillow. The E-Win has its lumbar pillow tightly strapped
to the chair making it adjustable in height and keeping it from moving. This pillow is great for lumbar support, helping
you sit with better posture and preventing spine issues and back pain. The pillow along with the backrest helps create
an ergonomic design that helps your posture and comfort. The pillow can also just be removed if you
don’t like it, and even without it the chair is very comfortable and supportive. In addition, there is a neck and head pillow
which is nice. I only had two minor issues with my E-Win
gaming chair, that’s the armrests and neck pillow. The Armrests are great but my desk is lower
to the ground making it so I can’t push the chair all the way into the desk when I’m
done using it. I also don’t like these style of armrests
in general. But I just took them off and I actually prefer
it with no armrests. It makes the chair take up way less space
and I can easily push it in when done. Also I don’t miss that they’re gone because
when editing I prefer to rest my arms on the desk. And while gaming I prefer to have my controller
in my lap or on the desk too. Now that I removed them, the armrests don’t
get in my way. So the armrests aren’t really an issue I
just prefer the chair without them. And the fact that you can even take them off
is a great feature. With other chairs you don’t have that ability,
just like with my old office chair. The other issue was the neck and head pillow. This neck and head support was way too low
for me and whenever I moved it up it just slid right back down. However then I figured out you can just unhook
the pillow and strap it around the outside so it will be perfect height for you! I really like the comfort the top pillow provides. So these two minor complaints are really non-issues,
and overall this gaming chair is fantastic! ALthough I also did a bit of research to see
what problems people have with gaming chairs in general and those seem to be pretty simple
and most don’t apply to the E-Win brand. One issue is some gaming chairs have a lip
where the seat angle gets higher like in a car and that can lead to discomfort. None of the E-Win gaming chairs have that
though. Another complaint is gaming chairs have bucket
seats where it curves up to meet your sides. This can limit movement depending on how you
like to sit. Everyone has their own preferences but for
me this was never an issue and I like how it hugs your sides. Gaming chairs also don’t have any seatpan
depth adjustment but most standard office chairs don’t either. And E-Win offers many different size variations
so that you can buy the one that will fit your body correctly. The E-Win also has a 155 degree angle adjustment
which not even higher end office chairs have. So in some ways it’s more adjustable. Some people don’t find the lumbar support
to be adequate on gaming chairs. The E-win chairs have good size lumbar pillows
that do a great job supporting your back and help you have proper posture. It’s also well known that gaming chairs
are actually good for your back, promote better posture, and can help with back pain. They are also designed for more comfort during
longer periods of time as they provide better support for your upper body compared to office
chairs. Then of course some people have an issue with
the price. Office chairs range in price from $50 to $1,000. Gaming chairs are usually around $100-500. It is true that gaming chairs are often overpriced
because they have a popularity appeal, however the E-Win chairs are priced very well and
I’ll get into that shortly. So as you can see there aren’t many real
issues with the E-Win chairs. But that’s not to say you won’t have any. Everybody is different and some people will
prefer different types of chairs. You should find the chair that works best
for you and your body! The E-Win Gaming Chairs comes in a ton of
different models, styles and colors. The models range from less expensive to more
expensive like the champion series I have. But they also range from recommended height
and weight capacity. Each of their chairs is designed for a different
range of recommended heights a range of supported weights. I think the different options is great because
when it comes to gaming chairs, one size doesn’t fit all. Each of the models also have different styles
that have differing aesthetics. And each version has different colors you
can choose from as well. I’m 6’1 so I went with the champion series
as that has the recommended height and all the premium features. I went with the black and white as I wanted
a more neutral look and my room has a lot of black and white in it. I was thinking of going for their blacked
out version that looks more professional but I wanted it to have a little contrast. The two lower end models don’t have all
the premium features hence the lower prices. Speaking of prices, these different models
of gaming chair come in different prices. This ranges from $200-400. However right now all their chairs are on
sale for the new year and you can get an additional 30 percent off by using code “timelag”
on their website. They offer free shipping and their shipping
is very fast, I got it within a few days. With their sale you can get their lowest end
model for only $150 and the champion version I have for $300. However with code timelag you can get the
champion series for $209!! I understand people not wanting to spend $400
on a chair, but at $200 the E-Win champion series is a great value and I absolutely recommend
it! They also have it on Amazon right now for
$260. For comparison your typical no name gaming
chair from Office Depot is around $200, and on Amazon you can find some low quality no
name ones for $100-200. The E-Win champion series gaming chair is
much better quality and has more features for just a little bit more. Also check out this comparison of a no name
gaming chair vs an E-Win chair. The quality of E-Win gaming chairs is so much
better than the cheap gaming chairs you’ll find elsewhere. Your standard nice office chair, like the
one I use to own, costs about $100, this is twice that but way nicer, more comfortable,
more adjustable, and way more durable. There are of course other brands like Clutch
and DxRacer but from my research the E-Win chairs are actually better in many ways. A lot of YouTubers use the E-Win gaming chair
too, people like Steven from boogie2988, and Nintendo YouTubers like Wood from BeatEmUps,
and John from SpawnWave. E-win is an excellent brand. Their reviews across amazon and their website
prove this. All their chairs have a 4.5 to 5 stars and
their reviews say they have great customer service and that their chairs are amazing. Are gaming chairs worth it? Yes. Of course they aren’t for everyone, some
people may prefer a standard office chair. But from my experience they are way nicer,
more comfortable and more feature packed than your standard office chair. That being said it’s always a good idea
to test out different types of chairs for yourself so you can find one that’s great
for you! So is the E-Win champion series worth it? Absolutely. This chair is seriously amazing and it’s
a great value right now. I know that’s easy for me to say since I
didn’t buy it, but I’m telling you this thing is worth it. I regret not getting one sooner. If I would have known how great these really
are I would bought one years ago. Yes this is a luxury but if you can afford
it then it’s definitely worth getting. Don’t take my word for it though. My friend John aka Johniibo also uses an e-win
gaming chair. I wanted to let him shares his thoughts real
quick since he paid for it himself and has been using it for longer. Thanks Adam, I appreciate you asking my opinion
on this. Hey everyone, my name is Johniibo. I play a lot of games, I stream a lot, so
I’m sitting down the majority of the day I want to find a chair that really suited
my needs. I was using this old office chair that I got
off Craigslist for about 15 bucks. And unsurprisingly that gave out in like a
couple months because it was off Craigslist. So I started looking for actual gaming chairs,
I did not want to spend a ton of money but I also did not want to get a low-quality chair. And I hear good things about E-Win racing
chairs at the time so I checked out their website and fortunately they were having a sale for Memorial Day and
I was able to get the champion series for $80 off. I think it was $280 full price and I got it
for $200 So I was ecstatic about that because you know
this is out of pocket, there’s a large up front cost and I was worried about putting
money out there and getting a product that I did not enjoy. I was just worried about that so I was ecstatic
to get a sale and after the seven months that I’ve been using it, I use it pretty much
every day and I think it’s one of the best chairs that I’ve ever owned. It’s definitely the best gaming chair I’ve
ever owned and worth the investment. So if you’re worried about that large upfront
cost don’t be, it’s a great chair, it’s very comfortable, it has not lost any comfort,
any sturdiness, anything. It’s been a great chair over the past 7
months and I use it for hours on end everyday. I did want to point out one thing though. I am unfortunately not the smallest guy in
the world so I may have gotten a chair that is one size too small. I think I was on the cusp of what they recommend. So if you are on the cusp of what they recommend
I think you should maybe go with the bigger size because you’ll be able to notice— It doesn’t really affect my comfort level,
but it definitely is a little tighter than I was expecting. But it’s still very comfortable, I love
it, I enjoy it everyday. I hope this helps, enjoy the rest of the video. Thank you John! Be sure to checkout his YouTube channel Johniibo,
he also livestreams a lot over on Mixer too! In conclusion, I love my E-Win Champion Series
Gaming Chair! I know they are cliche and I didn’t use
to believe the hype either, but the hype is real. I have used plenty of office chairs like the
big leather ones and the smaller Herman Miller style. I have also used lots of Ikea chairs too. Above all these I prefer the gaming chair
style and E-Win is fantastic brand for them! But now I want to hear from you. What’s your experience with gaming chairs? Are you considering getting one? Let me know your take in the comments down
below Thank you so much for watching!
