Retailing at just a tad under £90, the X Rocker Trojan Chair is designed with one purpose in mind – to play games. It is one of the few chairs in this price range that is designed to work with multiple gaming platforms – and even older gaming systems too. It stands to be a winner in its category… if, and only if, it really performs as promised. So, let’s have a closer look shall we?
A Multi-Platform Chair at Last!
The first thing that catches your attention about the X Rocker Trojan isn’t the green racing stripes, but the fact that it has analog, USB and regular jacks built in to the control panel. This gaming chair is designed to be compatible with PS3 and PS4, Xbox and the Wii and WiiU home entertainment gaming platforms. It features side mount speakers with a built in sub-woofer on the smooth back. The back is high enough to skip the usual headrest without you missing a beat. The chair is fold-able and is covered in faux black leather with green racing stripes outlining a center mesh panel designed to keep you cool and firmly in place while playing your favourite games.
What it Does Best
One of the best things about this chair is you can use it with all of your gaming systems – new and not so new. The analog ports even allow you to jack into old school versions of the Xbox and Wii which you can play to your heart’s content. The seating style and shape of the elongated backrest provide more solid support than is typical with a standard gaming chair.
The side mounted speakers also provide a fuller experience because you get to hear the sound as if it is surrounding you, and not just right behind your ear. The one word that keeps being used when people talk about the X Rocker Trojan is “streamlined.” This isn’t some gaming chair/TV lounger like so many are trying to pretend to be with excess pockets and other add-ons; this chair means business and does not disappoint in terms of durability and comfort.
Where it Could be Improved
One place where the X Rocker falls short is in folding for storage. It can do it, but it still takes up a slightly awkward amount of space. If your intent is to game, this won’t be an issue. And to no one’s surprise, the right side controls are going to prove a problem for left-handers; but not as much as with other game chairs. The X Rocker Trojan has the control panel set back from the front edge on the right side of the product which makes it much easier to operate with your left hand.
Should you Get It?
The X Rocker Trojan Gaming Chair is the right fit for the serious gamer who owns multiple systems, or if you have an older system that you prefer to play on. It is the best gaming chair for a left handed person, the controls are still on the right but they feature larger control knobs so they are very easy to use and adjust. This chair is definitely a winner that delivers on its promises – with a stylish design thrown in for extra plus points.by
