DXRacer Iron Series Review

 

When it comes to gaming, finding the perfect gaming chair is crucial. As a gamer we spend extended periods of time sitting on our computer chair, which could lead to lower back complications later in life, that is if your chair is not ergonomic and does not adequately support you.

As important it is to have a good supporting chair, there are other options we are looking for as a gamer especially for the price we pay for them. The quality of the material is another good factor to consider. The multiple options it includes and last but not least the design and look of the chair. That is why I decided to review a model of one of the best brand of gaming chair, DXRacer.

Below you will find my DXRacer Iron Series review. I will review in depth the many options it offers, the quality of the chair, the design, the comfort and much more. Plus I will add my pros and cons, similar options I recommend and my final verdict on the product.

How it looks

The DXRacer Iron Series is a very elegant looking chair, and it comes in six different colors to choose from. The one I picked is the red and black model, as it fits very good with my gaming setup, but as I mentioned earlier, it comes in a wide variety of colors, ideal for nearly any setup you can have.

DXRacer Iron Series Review

This gaming chair is so flashy that depending on the color you choose for the chair, a part of the seat base will be the same color as the chair. Meaning if you choose the green/black color, the base will follow with a green/black color, adding even more “coolness” to the chair. Who said you couldn’t play video games in style?

This model offers a full sized metal frame, which helps greatly with the durability and the maximum weight capacity of this chair. Also, DXRacer adheres to strict quality controls, offering the ultimate gaming chair experience.

As a gamer for me, the number one factor when purchasing a gaming seat is the comfortability. However, if the model offers a high-quality build, a great look and over the top comfortability, I would go for it. Especially if you’re a streamer or a Youtuber, having a flashy gaming setup could potentially help you in your career.

 

Comfort

When it comes to comfort, the DXRacer is one of the best brands. Their gaming chairs are designed for offering the ultimate experience regarding comfort. The DXRacer Iron series is no different. It is made out of a high-quality Pleather, meaning it’s a synthetic leather made out of plastic.

This material is more flexible and less restrictive than leather. Also, it is very easy to clean, simply wipe it off occasionally with a cloth dipped in a solution of mild detergent and warm water. This simple care routine ensures a longer life for the garments. It’s also covered in vinyl, giving it an excellent look.

Like I mentioned above, this chair is very ergonomic and comfortable, even after extended periods of video gaming. This model includes a head rest pillow and a lumbar pillow. Both are adjustable. To be honest, I find it imperative to have that kind of support when it comes to gaming. Whether if you’re using your chair professionally or only to play video games, lumbar support is necessary to avoid back pains and other complications in the future.

Another important comfort factor is the high back rest area. It offers good neck and shoulder support. Unfortunately, this chair is not designed for taller people has the max height is only 6’2″ which is pretty good, but it’s something to look at when you’re purchasing a gaming chair.

The point that surprised me the most is the max weight limit. It can support up to 300 LBS. Usually, these types of computer chair only support up to 250 LBS, so that is a good plus for the Iron Series.

When we think about comfortability, we think about adjustments and this chair is great for that. The height of the Iron series can be adjusted to your preferred taste. You can adjust this model to a certain degree, allowing you to lie down on your chair and take quick naps in between gaming sessions. It also features 90° 4D Arms, meaning you can adjust them regarding height and from left to right.

As mentioned before, DXRacer creates gaming chairs which are designed for people who sit several hours on their gaming chair. That is why comfort is their number one priority.

 

Manoeuvrability

Whether you’re a casual gamer or a hardcore one, as a gamer we tend to move a lot, to get a glass of water or to simply switch out gaming accessories. So maneuverability is an important point when shopping for a gaming chair.

DXRacer Iron Series Review

Particularly when you’re in an online match, and you’re the only one standing, things tend to get serious, so you get closer to the screen.  Hence the importance of moving around smoothly.

Fortunately for us, the DXracer Gaming Chair offers easy maneuverability. This company creates high-quality chairs that even their wheel casters are amazing. The wheels allow the user to move around quickly and freely, without damaging your floor. The only problem is you might have a hard time moving around on a carpet.

Like most standard gaming chairs the DXRacer Iron Series provides a reclining seat mechanism allowing the user to recline the chair from 90 to 180 degrees. This option is perfect to watch movies or to take quick naps.

Last but not least the 360-degree swivel, this option is very useful when you’re being disturbed by your siblings, you can easily rotate around and tell them to get out without having to stand up, a very convenient option if you ask me.

 

Durability and Stability

DXRacer Iron Series Review

Another key feature of the DXRacer chairs is their durability. The Iron Series is designed to last a couple of years, depending on how you treat it of course. Like pretty much anything in life you need to take good care of it to keep it for a long time.

As mentioned above, the high-quality P leather combined with the vinyl covers makes this chair extremely durable and easy to clean. You won’t have to worry about getting a new computer chair every year unless you abuse it.

This model is very solid and safe. All the accessories have passed 72 strict quality tests. On top of having an imported hydraulic unit. The hydraulic unit is imported from Germany and passes stringent SGS and exceeds International standards. Adding, even more, stability and security to the Iron Series.

 

Who can benefit from this chair?

In my opinion, anyone can take advantage of this chair. This model offers a lot of features for gamers like me. On top of having a very flashy look, the Iron Series is designed to offer the maximum comfort to their users. So, whether you are a casual or a hardcore gamer, or you’re using this chair for your job, it will provide you with every thing you possibly need.

The only problem I have found is the price, so if you’re on a tight budget, then I would not recommend this one, as it cost quite a small fortune.

 

Weak points

As amazing as DXRacer chairs can be this model has a couple of weak points, nothing too big but I find it necessary to mention. Especially when you’re investing that kind of amount in a chair, you want to make sure to know everything about it!

First, the max height on this chair is a little bit low, 6’2″ to be exact. It’s not bad, but it’s not great. For paying such a big amount, you’d expect this chair to support all types of height. You could still buy it if you’re taller than 6’2″ but you might not fully benefit from the neck and shoulder support.

Second, this gaming chair cost a lot, to be expected with a DXRacer chair. Compare to other models similar to this one, there’s a big price difference, so if you’re on a tight budget, I’d recommend getting another one, maybe in the suggestions below.

Third, the weight of the chair. The Iron Series weights a lot, 66 pounds to be exact. It is very heavy if you compare it to other models. While not being a big problem it is worth mentioning, especially if you move your chair from room to room, or if you run over your foot with your chair.

 

Warranty and Support

The chair’s warranty can be requested from the manufacturer, DXRacer, or through contacting Amazon support here.When I checked on Amazon, the warranty itself isn’t on the product listing so you either have to go directly to the DXRacer website.

Usually, companies offer a 30 day no questions asked warranty, but if you can’t find it on their product page, I’d recommend following the links I listed above, just to be 100% sure before purchasing.

Product prices and availability are accurate as of the 2017-10-20 at 11:09 and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.

The AKRacing is very similar to the DXRacer Iron series regarding comfortability and customization options. The AKRacing chair cost a lot less than the Iron series and has a maximum weight capacity of 330 pounds, that’s more than the Iron series.

The only disadvante of the AKRacing is it only comes in one color. While not being a big problem some people prefer a variety of color to choose from in order to have a matching gaming setup.

The DXRacer King series is very similar to the Iron series, with a couple of differences. The King model is a larger model if you compare it to the Iron series. The color patterns of this one are very different from the one in our review.

The only big difference I can see is the price, King model is a little bit pricyer than the Iron one. Since the King is a X large model.

My Verdict

To conclude my DXRacer Iron Series Review, I will share my final verdict. Considering the high price of this gaming chair cost and the numerous options it offers, in my opinion, it is worth the price. On top of providing over the top comfortability and a gorgeous look, making all of your gaming friends jealous.

As I mentioned above, pretty much anybody can benefit of this fantastic gaming chair, especially if you have the budget for it. Whether you play video games casually or you play on a professional level, this chair will offer the ultimate experience. You could even use it for your day to day job.

Keep in mind, this chair might not be your best option if you’re a big and tall person, if that is your case, you can check out this article it will be more suited for you. As this chair can only support up to 300 pounds and a max height of 6’2″ which in my opinion is low for such a high priced chair.
