Awkward Assembly

Putting the GT099 professional along is the most do-it-yourself method we’ve seen in a gaming chair. In fact, it's the most steps.

Most gaming chairs need some assembly, however the manufacturer a minimum of installs the recline mechanism onto the seat at the factory, and infrequently the rest supports, too.

With the GT099 pro, you would like to screw on the reclining mechanism, the rest supports, the chair back, and also the base plate before you can pop the chair onto the wheeled base (after inserting the wheels and also the gas piston cylinder, of course).

The assembly method is not too tough, however it’s a lot of difficult and frustrating than what you will experience making most alternative gaming chairs.

Chair design

Once the chair's assembled, you will find the Pro’s style comparatively generic. It's black combined with another color (the purchase choices include red, blue, green, white, gray, or purple, with the extra and presently sold-out pink-and-white option).

The seat and chair back are made from fairly thin foam padding suspended over a metal frame.

That padding is roofed in equally thin and slightly rough-feeling, faux leather. Nothing concerning the chair feels significantly premium or, indeed, “Pro.” It’s simply a clear, budget-priced gaming chair.

The GT099 professional includes a seat that’s just below 20 inches wide and a reasonably shallow 16 inches deep, with the most weight of 300 pounds.

The whole chair can be tilted or secured in place, and also the chair back can recline up to 170 degrees by actuation the lever on its right side.

The armrests have adjustable heights and can be revolved to a few completely different angles.

As is particular with most gaming chairs, the tracing GT099 pro comes with lumbar and headrest pillows.

They’re rectangular cushions made from stiff, foam padding and also the same faux leather because of the chair itself.

They feel perfunctory and aren’t very snug unless you prefer extremely firm lumbar support.

The wheels and also the tilting and reclining mechanisms are fine—it’s simply very loud fake leather. perhaps the material needs to be broken a bit, it’s the noisiest gaming chair I’ve ever Sat in.

The chair additionally doesn’t feel significantly durable or comfortable compared with alternative chairs we’ve tested.

The GT099 professional isn’t overtly bad (besides the squeaking), however next to what AndaSeat and Secretlab provide, it feels flimsy and not very supportive or ergonomic.

Even its wheels roll a lot of roughly than the competition's. The GT099 professional may cost but half as much as you'd pay on those alternative chairs, however the standard difference is clear.

The Price You Pay
