Many specifications in this are not entirely beneficial for the users, or at least that’s apparent from the reviews online. There are pros and cons to this chair, which is to say it is not an entirely perfect product. Instead of generic chair features, we analyze how the chair’s specific features add to its value. Here’s everything you need to know particularly about which of the features are pros and which ones make it a less worthy investment. Spoiler alert, this is an objective review, we would not be giving a review if we could not tell a good thing about a product from the bad. So brace for both praise and critique where it’s needed.
Segmented Padding and Removable Headrest
Most gaming chairs have very intensely sculpted padding to ensure a comfortable sitting experience. But as it turns out, not everyone is a fan of that type of seating where the padding is jutting into your body. Although this one is also padded segment wise, it is not that forceful in terms of its shape. Instead, it is more lenient and open to allow space where you might need it.
However, people have noticed that because of thinner padding, the metal structure of the chair seems to make things uncomfortable after a while. You would still have to test it out to see how much it bothers you.
Moreover, the headrest is non – adjustable, which makes it difficult for taller people to take advantage of it. These two things, however, added as a benefit can turn into issues.
Continuous Surface Footrest
The defining feature of this chair is its continuous chair-to-footrest. Normally a gaming chair has a defined and separate footrest. However, the Respawn 900 comes with an adjoined footrest, which not only adds to its attractiveness from the designing perspective but also seems more comprehensive. Although the footrest is joined with the seat, the controls for both are separate, which give you full authority over how you wish to adjust it. So far everyone unanimously likes this feature and many even praise what it does to the design of the chair.
Another good one, the reclining feature. Many gaming chairs, advanced or not, have a reclining option that is very on the either-or scale. Loosely translated, that means you can recline but only until one specific angle, or not at all. But the reclining feature on this one is more flexible according to your needs. It gives you a good margin of reclining up to135-degrees so that you can choose your preferred angle that you like. This would be further amplified if the headrest option was freely adjustable, so you can recline back and raise your head enough for the screen. But for just the reclining part, it’s a good enough feature. You get used to it quite easily.
Extractable Pouch and Cup Holder
Additional features are something many gaming manufacturers try to add to make the chairs more enticing. Many have additional console space for storage, USB ports so you don’t have to leave your space to charge your devices and other such advanced options. Compared to what others offer, this is not a great option for additional features. But it is still good in terms of convenience.
This Respawn chair has a small pouch that carefully hangs by the side, and that you can extract/remove if you like. It’s good for storage, you don’t have to get up from your chair for small things you regularly need, you can store them there. The same goes with its cup holder, it makes it easy to snack and hydrate while gaming. Nonetheless, you will have an easy and convenient gaming experience.
The chair has a weightage capacity of 275 lbs compared to what other manufacturers are aiming for, which is 300-350 lbs. However, its open and less ‘shaped’ seat will provide ample space for a large individual as well to keep them comfortable and relaxed during their gaming adventure. Moreover, know that, it will work best, when used within its weight capacity. You can make your deductions based on personal use.
The above are the highlighted pros and cons of Respawn 900 as your gaming chair. No matter your intent of use, these are the specifications you sign up for, and we intend to help you get a better understanding of how that pan out when in use. Overall, to summarise the review, this is a good chair with its flaws, that is not unanimous, so there’s a chance it might depend on how a person is using it. With the occasional issues aside, it is a good enough option for $300 for different types of users.
