Overall a wonderful chair, there isn't much else to say. It's very supportive, and seems to be durable. The only cons are very minor compared to the pros, but are worth noting considering the price. I wish the arm rests were able to fold out of the way for musicians who might have to deal with a keyboard tray or guitar. The chair can be tipped over if you lean too far forward, but you can recline all the way back without worrying about losing balance. It would be nice if there wasn't a gap where you could rest your head without the pillow. It isn't really made to be a lounge chair even though there's a recline feature, which is actually kind of nice since it keeps me more productive. I would have liked to keep the logos only on the side covers rather than the upholstery, but at least they are discrete, high quality, and sophisticated. The shipping was super quick, I was definitely surprised at how fast it arrived.
I've read discussions asking about the tilt lock feature. I'm pretty sure mine was advertised without tilt lock, but I still received the tilt lock version. You just have to pull out or push in the lever that adjusts the height. In my opinion the tilt mechanism seems slightly stiff even on the most flexible setting. Maybe over time the spring will lighten up. It's also quite tall; more range in height adjustment would be a good improvement.
I would also agree with the discussions saying the plastic covers should be more durable, however mine are good so far, nothing has broken. At least they are replaceable.
Anyways, the AKRacing Aero Gaming Chair certainly seems to be worth the price, especially since Massdrop has helped with this collaboration.
Mine should be here tomorrow.. Did you have to be present for the delivery?
Nope, the box was just delivered to my porch, I didn't have to sign for it or anything. I was home at the time though. Maybe you could request that from Massdrop or the delivery service if you want the delivery to require a signature, I think its just optional though.
Gotcha. Good deal, thank you for the quick response. The reason I'm asking is I work 3rd shift and will be sleeping when the tracking number reported its approx. delivery and I wanted to be sure they would leave it. I'd hate for it to be re-delivered for another day that I'll just be sleeping still. Thank you so much again and thank you for the rest of your review as well. Looking forward to this chair!
Thank you, it's definitely awesome for being just a chair. Take care.
