    Brought this chair recently and I have to say that so far it has been fantastic and added another dimension to gaming.
    The chair can be put together and set up and connected very easily. I have connected mine from my TV via the PS3 and I can’t believe the difference that it has made.
    Using the chair with Gran Turismo 6 and a DFGT steering wheel makes the whole experience a comlpetely new one.
    The seating height and position is just right and the chair is nice and supportive and not too soft and spongy. I have used the chair for an extended period and found it to be comfortable enough, leaving me with no back aches or pains.
    Two rear speakers are mounted in the seat just below the headrest. Although compared to my home AV system they are not a match, they do however sound surprisingly clear and effective during gameplay with sound effects whizzing around your ears.
    The built in subwoofer provides some decent bass and also a great rumble effect that reacts with the game. So for instance, driving over a rumble strip on the apex of a corner in GT6 allows you to feel the edge of the track as well as bumps and dips in the road and shunts from other drivers. The rumble effect can be turned on or off and the bass can be turned up or down to heighten the effect of the rumble. With the force feedback between this chair and the DFGT wheel I can honestly say that the overall effect is amazing, and the most realistic driving experience that i have had outside of a car. It really gets the adrenaline pumping particularly in the heat of a tight race and gives you that feeling of actually being there that you just don’t get with using a bog standard controller and a couch. You actually get the sensation of the tyres starting to let go of the road when pushing too hard and regaining their grip when you ease off the gas. Brilliant!!!! I turned off the chair and raced again and the experience felt completely different.
    The effect with the chair is great with other games too, not just driving games. it’s comfort and sound, bass and rumble effect bring out an extra dimension in all of the games that i have used it with. Hearing and feeling explosions and shots in MW3 is another great experience as is Grand Theft Auto 5.
    All of the connections and controls are on a panel on the right hand side of the seat. The buttons and controls seem adequate and conveniently positioned if a little cheap feeling however in my oppinion.One of the volume buttons doesn’t quite make contact properly when pressed and I have to depress it and repress it a couple of times on occasions. That is my only gripe with it so far and I hope that it’s not going to become a problem or get any worse or spread to the other buttons over time.
    There is an adjustment knob underneath the seat which can tilt the chair backwards but i have found the normal position to be just right for me so have not felt the need to move it, but it’s nice to have the flexibility there if needed. The overall quality appears to be very good. The chair is quite heavy and fairly large. Almost arm chair like in size, although still quite sleek and nicely styled with it’s black leather effect cover and padded cushion and red trim which gives it a quality look and feel. The chair can be used without the pedestal base if desired but you then lose the adjustment option as well as the swivel and tilt movement.
    So in summery this is a great gaming chair that will appeal to all gamers alike but will be of particular interest to players of driving games and sim racers. To buy a rig with the sound, sub woofer and a Butt kicker rumble set up fitted to a chair can set you back a fortune. This chair basically has it all in one comfortable sleek package all at a very affordable price.
    I can’t recomend this chair highly enough. If you are considering buying a gaming chair or want to build a driving sim rig for a fantastic price then give this one a try. You won;t be disapointed. With it’s sound, bass, rumble, adjustment capabilities and connectivity it is definitely a versatile and attractive product.
    This really does bring another dimension to gaming, listening to music and even watching movies.
    !0 out of 10. GO GET ONE!!!!!!
