We are going to test and review all types of DXRacer gaming chairs:
- Origin series;
- Formula series;
- Racing series;
- King series;
- Sentinel series;
- Tank series.
Let us begin!
DXRacer Origin series – Cheapest DXRacer chairs on the market
Currently it includes only one model – OH/OC168/N. It comes in five different colors – black, white, red, orange and green. No matter what you choose, the main color remains black – only decorative stripes vary (this applies to all other DXRacer series).
This is the cheapest DXRacer series, but it still has everything that people like about products of this company. Amazing looks, comfortable seat and convenient tilt mechanism for less than 250 dollars is a nice offer. Yes, it does not have adjustable armrests and materials are not as good as in more expensive DXRacermodels (that is why it is recommended for users under 150 lbs.), but the low price and strong assembling quality make this budget gaming chair a great purchase.
DXRacer Origin series is a decent inexpensive option for average users. If your weight is less than 150 lbs. and you do not spend countless hours playing computer games, you will not have any problems with it.
DXRacer Formula series – Affordable and versatile
DXRacer Formula series includes six models under 350 dollars, that slightly differ by the type of cover and base material. They are often bought for everyday use as office chairs.
We do not recommend you to buy DXRacer OH/FD01/NR, OH/FD99/NW or DXRacer OH/FD101/N (cheapest Formula series products) because their bases are made from nylon. These models are almost similar to DXRacer Origin series OH/OC168/N, but they cost about 50 dollars more. In our opinion, adjustable armrests do not justify almost 50 dollars price increase.
We really liked DXRacer OH/FH11/NC. It is a very common DXRacer model, and it is no wonder why it become so popular – this chair comes in 11 colors, has sturdy inlaid color bar base and comfortable adjustable armrests. Moreover, it costs only slightly more than DXRacer Formula series chairs with nylon bases!
The most expensive models of Formula series are DXRacer OH/FH00/NR and DXRacer OH/FH08/NW. The first has a smooth carbon look vinyl cover and the latter has a thick polyurethane cover, which imitates leather.
DXRacer Formula series has a very good model – OH/FH11/NC. It would be great for users with average height, but tall and heavy people should look for other options.
DXRacer Racing series – Stylish gaming chairs that fit for everyone
With the Racing series, DXRacer tried to please the widest audience – and they successfully did it. These chairs are suitable for everyone (even for big men with a height up to 6’1”) and are equally good for gaming and office work.
All the DXRacer Racing series chairs (except for the DXRacer OH/RW106/NW) have aluminum base, so they fit for users weighing up to 250 lbs. They also come with bigger and softer head and lumbar pillows that provide an exceptional level of comfort. As for customization – Racing series models offer adjustable armrests and conventional tilt mechanism, which allows laying down the backseat to 135 degree.
DXRacer King series – Bigger models with familiar design
Basically, DXRacer King series is the bigger version of DXRacer Racing series. It includes two models: DXRacer OH/KS11/NR (which comes in two colors: black and red) and DXRacer OH/KS06/NR (comes in five different colors). Both of them hold up to 275 lbs. (124 kg.) and have improved aluminum base. Do not expect anything special from these products: they do not have any unique adjustments or covers. The only factor that explains the high price of DXRacer King series chairs is their amazing strength.
DXRacer King series is made for people who want to get sturdier versions of DXRacer Racing series products. It is indeed very strong thanks to improved aluminum bases and the painstaking assembly quality. If you are a big man and do not mind spending significant amounts of money on a gaming chair – then buy it right now. Otherwise, it would be probably better for you to purchase a DXRacer Racing series chair.
DXRacer Sentinel Series – Exceptional weight capacity
A combination of strong aluminum base and 3” casters allows DXRacer King chairs to hold up to 325 lbs. (147 kg.). You would have to try really hard in order to break them!
There are three DXRacer King models and they only differ by the cover material. The most expensive option imitates leather and the cheapest one uses standard combination of strong mesh and polyurethane.
DXRacer Sentinel series is a decent choice for those people who want to have the most durable and safe gaming chairs. These are comfortable and beautiful products, made from the best parts. Keep in mind that all DXRacer Sentinel chairs are heavy and take up a lot of space, so it is not the best option for small rooms.
DXRacer • Fits even to biggest users;– Truly unbreakable chairs
Do not joke around the DXRacer Tank series chairs. These things are monsters! A single DXRacer Tank series chair is able to hold up to 425 lbs. (192 kg.) without any problems.
DXRacer Tanks series models offer everything you would have expected from a premium gaming chair: big and comfortable pillows, nice cover, adjustable armrests and impressive strengthened base. They look great and feel great and it makes them seem like a pretty good choice. However, it is not true for most people. If you do not have any problems with excessive weight, choose a DXRacer Racing or DXRacer Formula model – they offer pretty much the same fucnctionality but for smaller money.
Verdict: DXRacer Tank series chairs are very specific, so they should be considered only for people with bad. Unless you are not overweight or extremely tall, there is no much sense for you to buy it…
