At approximately £100, the HJH/Buerostuhl Office Swivel Chair certainly starts to look like an ideal solution to your gaming needs. It comes in around the low middle price range for home and office desk chairs and has many features that are popular amongst gamers and office workers.
What is surprising in this price range is that it breaks the mold from the typical look of a rolling desk chair and has a sporty/sleek style – that alone makes it worth a closer look. The real question is whether or not something this affordable, and stylish, is going to be comfortable after a few hours of sitting down on.
What features define the Buerostuhl Swivel Office Chair?
The HJH Office Swivel Chair features a racing seat style with sewn segmented pads in the seats and back. The outer edges are double stitched and formed with sculpted cushions rising at the edge. The material is made of a durable, but soft, synthetic leather material. It also comes with a 5 point bottom castor support system and features an adjustable height seat. The back angle is fixed, and the bed of the chair is on a rocker platform. The last main feature of this chair is the ergonomic arm rests that can be height adjusted at will.
There is a lot that customers love about this chair. The seat is set at an upright angle that promotes proper posture and works to relieve and prevent back strain. It adjusts easily to just the right height and the seat rocker mechanism is smooth, allowing for a comfortable tilt that holds you in the position you want.
Hands down, the feature that everyone loves is the adjustable arms. The arms are curved and padded, which is a plus you usually don’t find in this price range, but the fact that you can adjust their height is an added bonus. You can even raise the height of the arms above the normal desk height which can help add support for those working on a computer for hours on end.
There are two complaints about this chair, but only one really counts. The first complaint is about the fixed arch of the back. It forces you into an ergonomically correct position. Customers who are used to reclining their chairs don’t like it, but they probably haven’t connected that position to their lower back pain either. The other complaint about the HJH/Buerostuhl Office Swivel Chair is that it has awful rolling castors. They do the job, but are noisy and not smooth at all.
Is this the Chair for You?
For the price, this Racer Swivel Chair delivers a lot more than you might expect. The issue with the castors really isn’t that big of a deal if you are on a smooth surface, unless your goal with the chair is to have a race! Everything about this chair is designed to make working – and gaming – a more comfortable experience, while at the same time promoting good posture and support. All in all it is a winner in both looks and performance.by
