1. Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair

The Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair bears almost the same design and profile to the predecessors, Secretlab TITAN and Omega 2000 Series.

Except with a flatter one-piece seat base (great if you like to sit cross-legged on your chair) and an overall lower height of ~2cm so if you’re short, this is good news for you.

New features are some magnetic components including the top of the armrests and the headrest. As well as the ability to adjust the height of the built-in lumbar support in addition to how much curvature you desire.

There is a notable improvement in the SoftWeave fabric variant of this chair too – it is rough but more durable too.

However, the above changes are not significant enough to warrant an upgrade from either the Secretlab Titan or Omega 2000 Series.

And price-wise, the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair still costs a lot for a gaming chair but the high level of build quality and comfort more or less matches the previous chairs.

Furthermore, the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair has even more looks to choose from as its predecessors.

Just take some time to pick the right size category for the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair and you’ll have yourself a good-looking, highly adjustable, very comfortable, and durable gaming chair/ office chair of medium firmness. For more details on this chair, see our full review of the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair (SoftWeave).

  • Many variations to choose from

Cons:

  • SoftWeave fabric feels rough on skin
  • Wheels can’t lock
  • Expensive

2. Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair

Beneath the PU leather upholstery and padding (high density foam) of the 28kg Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair:

Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair - Left

Is a solid metal frame including the wheel base! Which is reinforced stainless steel with a polished finish/coating.

There’s a gas lift (up to 150kg) to adjust the height of the seat. And you can lean this chair back down until 170°.

Furthermore, it has padded 4D armrests! But most importantly, it feels very firm and comfortable and supports your back!

At the price it goes for though (~RM1,500), it’s disappointing that the warranty for the Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair is just for a year.

And it’s also unfortunate that there is no fabric variation of this chair if you happen prefer fabric over PU.

Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair - Back

However, the Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair is a cheaper alternative (for those well under the 150kg mark) to the more expensive Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair if you don’t mind how firm it is.

Note: You can go for the slimmer Standard option if you want more color choices but you won’t get the extra pillows or cushioning!

  • Maximum Weight: <150 kg
  • Backrest: Adjustable Full-length Backrest Recline 90-170°
  • Armrests: 4D Adjustable
  • Mechanism Type: Butterfly Mechanism
  • Upholstery Material: High Quality PU Leather, High Density Molded Foam
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Gas Lift
  • Base: Polished Aluminum Base With 65mm Caster Wheels
  • Weight: 28 kg
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Price: ~RM1,449

Pros:

  • Comes with head and back pillows
  • Lumbar pillow can be adjusted (by height)
  • Looks good with a versatile and elegant design
  • Seat won’t sag easily (very dense molded foam)
  • Smooth rolling (65mm caster wheels)
  • Easy to install
  • Enough space to sit cross-legged on this chair

Cons:

  • Quite expensive (But you can pay by a 3-month installment)
  • No fabric variation
  • 1 year warranty seems short for the price

3. Victorage Gaming Chair

There are a total of 12 different looks to choose from for the Victorage Gaming Chair – to be more precise, there are 4 color variants per design.

Victorage Huracan Airism Fabric Gaming Chair
Victorage Huracan Airism Fabric Gaming Chair

The 3 designs to choose from are categorized into the Cullinan Gaming Chair, Huracan Gaming Chair and Phantom Gaming Chair. Each with their own distinctive back silhouette.

This gives you plenty of options if you prefer a more sporty looking and fun gaming chair or an inconspicuous appearance that will fit into a home office too.

Apart from their appealing looks, these gaming chairs come with a very long warranty (6 years) and can recline down to 165°. A significant improvement of the newer Victorage Gaming chair over the previous version is the wider coverage of the lumbar support pillow.

Victorage Cullinan Gaming Chair
Victorage Cullinan Gaming Chair

The Victorage Gaming Chair is in the same price range as the Todak Alpha Premium Gaming Chair and therefore, it is another cheaper alternative to owning a Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

On that note, the Victorage Gaming Chair does have some advantages over the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

For one, the seat base is thicker and hence, more cushy for your butt. And it glides like a dream.

Besides this, the fabric variant of the Victorage Gaming Chair is a lot gentler (I.e. softer) on the skin than the SoftWeave fabric of the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

However, you can’t lock the position of the armrests in the forward/ backwards direction. And this can get annoying after a while.

Moreover, the headrest of the Victorage Gaming Chair isn’t nearly as adjustable or as comfortable as the one that comes with the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

All in all, if you prefer a softer feel for your gaming chair, you should check out the Victorage Gaming Chair over the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

The Victorage Gaming Chair is an attractive and comfortable gaming chair though with some minor setbacks (I.e. annoying armrests and limited headrest adjust-ability) and it is cheaper than the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair too.

  • Maximum Weight: <150 kg
  • Backrest: Adjustable Full-length Backrest Recline Up to 165°
  • Armrests: 4D Adjustable With Soft-Touch PU
  • Mechanism Type: Multi-Tilt, Multi-Tilt Angle Lock
  • Upholstery Material: Fabric / PU Leather, Cold-Cure Moulded Foam
  • Seatbase: Flat Seat Base
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Hydraulics
  • Base: Aerospace Grade Aluminium With PU Wheels
  • Warranty: 6 years
  • Price: From RM1,499

Pros:

  • Thick seat base
  • Satisfying selection of color variants and designs
  • Long warranty period
  • Medium firmness
  • Comfortable lumbar support
  • Extremely smooth gliding
  • Fabric version is soft

Cons:

  • Armrests cannot be locked (easily slide forwards or backwards)
  • Headrest height adjustment is minimal

4. TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair

Significantly cheaper than a Secretlab chair, the TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair is made of premium PU leather and can recline all the way down to 180°.

TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair

Which is further than either the pricier Victorage Gaming Chair or Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair.

Although it’s worth nothing that the soft PU leather of the TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair looks like it will flake off with constant friction (and sweat).

If that’s a concern for you, the PU leather used for the Swift and Duo V3 is different, and seems more durable.

As for the seat of the TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair, the foam cushion is very firm. And even may be uncomfortable to some.

Besides this, the base is narrow because of the contoured sides which makes it unsuitable for wider body types (go for Swift instead)!

On the other hand, the top portion of this gaming chair accommodates wide shoulders easily.

Moreover, the chrome-aluminum base with castor wheels is sturdy enough to support up to 150kg! But on carpets, you really need more effort to move the chair!

Like the rest of the TTRacing chairs, the assembly process is smooth and the instructions are clear with pictures. Except you just need to be wary of where the base is facing before you screw it in.

There’s no squeaking when you rotate or recline the chair. And the armrests are fully adjustable. But don’t feel very solid.

Some minor cosmetic defects (plastic components are not smooth) aside, this is a beautiful and reasonably priced gaming chair (for average body types on the tall side) that offers good lumbar, arm and neck support.

However, if you weigh more than 100kg and can afford to pay a little more, there are certainly more comfortable gaming chairs out there!

  • Maximum Weight: 150 kg
  • Adjustable Backrest Angle: Recline Up To 180°
  • Armrests: 4D Adjustable
  • Mechanism Type: Full Tilt
  • Upholstery Material: Premium Faux Leather & Cold Cure Foam
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Gas Lift
  • Base: Heavy Duty Chrome Aluminium Base With PU Wheels
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Price: RM799

Pros:

  • Relatively affordable
  • Decent warranty length
  • Suitable for those with big shoulders
  • Still comfortable for a user with height of 178cm
  • You can sit in it for 6-7 hours
  • Looks expensive
  • Smooth operation

Cons:

  • Heavy and hard to move on carpets
  • Might need a leg rest as the chair height can’t go very low (i.e. for those below 179cm)
  • PU leather doesn’t look durable
  • Narrow base

5. Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne – Professional Gaming Chair

Gamers who want to upgrade the aesthetics of their home gaming station will find the Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne – Professional Gaming Chair irresistible with its remote-controlled rainbow LED light edging!

You will need to find a power source for the lights though (it lights up via USB to a power bank or other power source of 2 to 4A).

Naturally, the attractive lighting system is the main appeal of the Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne – Professional Gaming Chair.

However, if you’re unlucky, you might receive a chair with faulty LEDs (e.g. one side may not light up).

Aesthetics aside, the seat depth of the Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne – Professional Gaming Chair is 51cm, similar to the TTRacing Swift X which is also around the RM600 price mark.

This makes it suitable for taller people. Along with the adjustable lumbar and armrest height.

Unfortunately, like the TTRacing Swift X, the seat cannot be raised very high (just 6cm adjustment):

The maximum height that the bucket seat of the Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne can be (from the floor), is actually ~43cm. While the TTRacing Swift X can reach 44-45cm.

Note: For reference, a seat height of 47cm is comfortable for someone who is almost 6 feet. And the standard dining chair height is between 45 to 50cm.

Also, take note of the shoulder width (56cm) and seat width (46cm) if you are of a wider stature!

So if you are interested in getting the  Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne – Professional Gaming Chair, bear in mind that it suits users of average heights and slim builds better.

Gaming Freak GF-GCCMT10-BR Cosmic Throne - Professional Gaming Chair
  • Maximum Weight: 130 kg
  • Adjustable Backrest Angle: Recline Up To 150°
  • Armrests: Height Adjustable
  • Mechanism Type: Butterfly Mechanism
  • Upholstery Material: Synthetic PVC Leather and Thick & High Rebound Memory Foam Cushion 
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Gas Lift
  • Base: Nylon Base With High Grade PU Castor Wheels
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Price: ~RM659

Pros:

  • Detachable head and lumbar pillow
  • Simple to set up (with instructions and pictures)
  • Adjustable armrest (height)
  • Reclines to 165 degrees
  • Attracting lighting system
  • Deep bucket seat
  • Decent price point
  • Comfortable for users with narrow frames

Cons:

  • Seat base is lower than average
  • Not suitable for those with wider frames

6. TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair

Shorter than the Surge gaming chair, the Swift X 2020 has a lumbar and head pillow for further support! Although the lumbar cushion always falls off (Stealth model).

The TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair is missing the metal base of the Surge but the nylon base should be fine if you are below the maximum weight limit (150kg)!

Additionally, the Surge may also have more flexibility in terms of adjustment for arm rests and better lumbar support overall than the TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair but it is narrow around the hips.

While the TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair has a generous wide seat! And is actually sturdier.

That may be because it doesn’t go very high – it is limited to 5-6cm adjustment range.

However, the Swift’s seat depth is suitable for taller people (185cm, 90kg). But the seat will eventually conform to your butt shape (e.g., after a year of regular use).

Compared to the TTRacing Duo V3, the seat of the TTRacing Swift stays firm longer. And between the TTRacing Duo V3, Swift and Surge, the TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair has the better quality material.

All three chairs do however, suffer from poor wheel mobility on carpets. Nonetheless, they are equally easy to assemble!

For its comfort, adjust-ability, and decent build quality, the TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair offers great value for money! Especially for those with budgets under RM1,000!

And if you like to sit wide, the TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair is much more comfortable than the pricier TTRacing Surge!

Official assembly video:

TTRacing Swift X 2020 Gaming Chair
  • Maximum Weight: 150 kg
  • Adjustable Backrest Angle: Recline Up To 165°
  • Armrests: Height Adjustable
  • Mechanism Type: Full Tilt
  • Upholstery Material: Premium Faux Leather & Cold Cure Foam
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Heavy Duty Class 4 Safety Gas Spring with SGS Cert
  • Base: Heavy Duty Nylon Base With PU Wheels
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Price: RM599

Pros:

  • Value for money
  • Comfortable (especially for those around 175cm tall)
  • Stealth color variation is discreet enough for the office
  • Installation is easy (15 to 30 minutes), Allen key given too
  • Very nice finishing
  • Adjustable armrests are not cushioned but are firm and provide good support
  • Joints don’t squeak
  • Wide seat

Cons:

  • Strong smell when new
  • Some minor defects like one or two screws not fitting exactly
  • Feels warm after ~30minutes – warm around the butt area
  • Hard to reach the lever (to change the height of the chair)
  • Doesn’t fully recline to 180°
  • Design doesn’t fit very wide shoulders

7. Coltrine Gaming Chair Fabric Material

Can’t stand PU seats?

The Coltrine Gaming Chair uses a durable fabric with a soft feel instead and its simple and elegant design enables it to blend into a home office environment too!

Not going to lie, it looks pretty similar to the  Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair (SoftWeave) in Cookies & Cream but it costs less.

Coltrine Gaming Chair Fabric Material

And while the lumbar and head supports for the Coltrine Gaming Chair are separate pillows that aren’t nearly as cool as the magnetic headrest or built-in lumbar support of the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair, but they do the job.

Assembly is easy (you will get all the tools you need) despite the fuzzy instructions, and the comfort of this chair is comparable to Secretlab’s! So much so that you might want to sleep in it!

The build quality meets the price of the chair too. Although it does not recline as far back as other gaming chairs. Compared to the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair, the Coltrine Gaming Chair only goes down to 155° (vs 165°).

Still, if you’ve been eyeing the new Secretlab SoftWeave fabric chairs for your home office or gaming station, the Coltrine Gaming Chair is a noticeably cheaper alternative if you don’t mind just a few color options (blue and white, or light or dark gray).

And it can bear more weight than the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair (200kg vs 180kg) or Victorage Gaming Chair (150kg).

Note: If you require a wider base, you can get the Plus version.

And as a bonus, there is efficient service (including after sales) to back up your purchase of the Coltrine Gaming Chair as well.

But since the Coltrine Gaming Chair is only slightly cheaper than the Victorage Gaming Chair, it might be worth spending a little more for the Victorage Gaming Chair which comes with a much longer warranty.

  • Maximum Weight: 200 kg
  • Adjustable Backrest Angle: Recline Up To 155°
  • Armrests: 4D Adjustable PU Armrest
  • Mechanism Type: Butterfly Mechanism
  • Upholstery Material: Fabric and High Resilience Foam Seat 
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Grade Gas Lift
  • Base: Aluminium 5 Star Foot With PU Wheels
  • Warranty: 3 years
  • Price: ~RM1,250

Pros:

  • Long warranty
  • Easy assembly
  • Comfortable
  • Has neck and lumbar support
  • Good service
  • Great quality
  • Fabric feels soft

Cons:

  • Expensive (more than RM1,000)
  • Only comes in gray
  • Does not recline very far

Best Budget Gaming Chair Malaysia

8. Musso Fabric Gaming Chair

The Musso Fabric Gaming Chair is our pick for a budget fabric gaming chair that is under RM500.

We like that there are lovely and fairly neutral shades (e.g. beige, dark gray, light gray, light blue) available for this gaming chair and it doesn’t look overly sporty either. So you can put it in a regular office setting too.

Musso Fabric Gaming Chair

It’s got a sleek silhouette and we like that the lumbar and headrests support are the same color as the chair.

But because this chair is considerably light compared to the regular size of the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair for instance, (~22kg vs ~35kg), we would not suggest it for anyone above 110kg.

However, since this chair is above 20kg, you might still want to grab a friend to help with assembly if you are petite. Otherwise, setup and installation is easy with this gaming chair.

And if it matters to you, this chair doesn’t recline very far (155° max). In any case, this chair is sufficiently padded iIf you’re of average weight) with thick cushioning for the wide seat base. It glides smoothly too.

It’s also worth noting that the dimensions and adjustment limitations (e.g. the armrests are not 4D, high headrest) of the Musso Fabric Gaming Chair also make it more suited to people who are above 175cm.

Despite it being great value for money, there is a chance of getting a faulty chair with broken components and that is just a risk you have to be willing to take with the Musso Fabric Gaming Chair.

  • Maximum Weight: <150 kg
  • Backrest: Adjustable Full-length Backrest Recline 90° to 155°
  • Armrests: Normal / 2D (Upward and Downward)
  • Mechanism Type: Multi-Tilt, Multi-Tilt Angle Lock
  • Upholstery Material: Fabric, High Density Foam
  • Seatbase: Flat Seat Base
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Class 4 Hydraulics
  • Base: Solid Nylon Base With Castors
  • Weight: 21.5kg
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Price: ~RM449

Pros:

  • Available in 5 different colors
  • Inconspicuous gaming chair design
  • Affordable
  • Comfortable enough to sit for hours (~8 to 10 hours)
  • Easy assembly
  • Generously wide seat base
  • Decent warranty length
  • Satisfying build quality for the price
  • Looks more expensive than it is
  • Dimensions suits tall and wide frames

Cons:

  • Not available in black
  • Unstable for heavier frames
  • Might squeak when you turn in the chair
  • There may be some manufacturing defects (e.g. scratches, paint chips, uneven armrests, torn fabric, loose caps, etc)
  • Lumbar cushion is not attached to the chair
  • Maximum reclining angle is 155°
  • Can feel hot in a room without air-conditioning

9. Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920

Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 is sold in 4 color variations – white/black, black, black/ red, and an unusual white/pink.

Hence, the Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920  is another option besides the  LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair if you’re looking for a pink gaming chair that costs around RM300.

The Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 feels sturdy and comfortable although the padding is of medium thickness. The lumbar pillow is firm as well.

Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 - Black & Red

And similar to the LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair, Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 sports a nice back massage feature too!

In general, the material and workmanship (e.g., weak stitching) befits the price. There can be some minor tears or smudges on the chair but they are acceptable.

Plus, you might want to raise the backrest so that it doesn’t rub against the hand rest and wear out faster.

Installation is easy if not for the screws because they are not sorted. And frustratingly, the manual doesn’t clearly indicate what screws are needed so it can take a lot of time (up to 2 hours) to install this chair!

However, some users still manage to complete installation in as little as 30 minutes!

At the end of the day, if you’re not expecting the quality of a high end gaming chair and don’t mind a messy installation process, the lack of a warranty or ability to recline far back (this chair stops at 135°):

Then the Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 will serve its purpose without breaking the bank!

Sakula Gaming Chair LR-920 - Black
  • Recommended Height: –
  • Maximum Weight: –
  • Backrest: Adjustable Full-length Backrest Recline up to 135°
  • Armrests: Normal / 2D
  • Mechanism Type: Butterfly Mechanism
  • Upholstery Material: Carbon Fibre PU leather, High Density Molded Foam
  • Seatbase: Snug Fit Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: –
  • Base: Nylon + PU Castor
  • Warranty: n/a
  • Price: ~RM269-319

Pros:

  • Good quality for the price
  • Cheap
  • Appealing color variations
  • Comfortably supports the back
  • With massage features (and foot rest depending on your order)
  • Height is adjustable for the armrests

Cons:

  • Does not recline far
  • Tricky installation
  • Average quality

10. TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair

Under RM400, the TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair features Carbon Fibre PU Leather. With fabric panels for the main portion of the seat and back. Which greatly improves the breathability aspect!

Though you may want to throw in an extra pillow for your back!

And because of the immovable and high arm rests, the TTRacing Duo V3 is a superb fit for people who are 175 (5.8ft) tall and weigh around 70-80kg.

Users that fit the above criteria find that the TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair with its built-in lumbar and neck support (i.e. head rest), is more comfortable than the TTRacing Swift.

But if you like to recline back occasionally, the TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair  is not as comfortable as the TTRacing Surge or Swift. As the Duo V3 can only go down to 155°. As such, the design of this gaming chair actually encourages you to sit upright.

However, one of the main drawbacks of the  TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair  is the tendency for the seat cushion of the Duo V3 to get flat within a few weeks’ of use (depending on your weight)!

And speaking of the seat cushion, there is a bump in the middle which is comfortable if you enjoy sitting with your legs apart. But not so much if you like to cross your legs!

In short, the lower price of the TTRacing Duo V3 makes it a good choice for a budget gaming chair:

Whether it’s for long hours working or gaming. The only thing to note is that it is better suited to taller people because of the fixed arm rests! And that are not too heavy so the seat doesn’t get flat so fast!

TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair
  • Maximum Weight: 130 kg
  • Adjustable Backrest Angle: Recline Up To 155°
  • Armrests: Not Adjustable
  • Mechanism Type: Butterfly Mechanism
  • Upholstery Material: Carbon Fibre PU Leather & Elastic Cloth
  • Seatbase: Leveled Seatbase
  • Adjustable Seat Height: Safety Gas Spring with SGS Cert
  • Base: Heavy Duty Nylon Base With PU Wheels
  • Warranty: 2 years
  • Price: RM399

Pros:

  • Comes with the manual to show you how to set it up
  • Long warranty
  • Light to move around
  • Inconspicuous minimal design that can blend in an office
  • Comfortable enough for long hours of work
  • High quality for the price – Stitching is good
  • Assembly is straightforward

Cons:

  • Still gets sticky unless you use it in a cool environment
  • Armrests, built in lumbar and neck support are not adjustable (e.g. not for short people)
  • No leg rest
  • Seat sinks in with regular use
  • Seat hump can be annoying to those who don’t like to sit wide
  • Does not recline very far back

11. GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair

Seeing that it’s only under RM400, the GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair still provides sufficient brace for your back!

The overall comfort and quality of the chair is good for its price. Even if the PU leather and padding can feel sparse in some sections of the chair.

You really can’t fairly compare the GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair to more expensive gaming chairs:

The GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair just does not feel as plush!

However, the seat height and firmness suits those who are 165cm tall and around 70kg.

And you are able to recline back right down to 180° with the GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair, much like the TTRacing Surge Gaming Chair. Very convenient for those spontaneous power naps!

The workmanship (I.e., stitching) is fine for the most part, and the adjusting the chair is smooth (except for the back).

The firm arm rests are adjustable too. But they can feel rickety and don’t hold their position strongly. And depending on where you get the chair from, there may be a footrest!

Note: The leg rest cannot be stored fully under the seat and juts out a bit

Lastly installation of the GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair is not as straightforward (e.g. hydraulic lift system) to some although others find it easy, taking just 10 minutes. The manual does not help much.

On the whole, if you are looking for a firm gaming chair that can fully recline:

The GTGAMEZ Phoenix E-Sports GMZ-GC-YG-725 Gaming Chair is an inexpensive option. With some minor quality issues that you have to accept. And it is best for people around 165-175cm.

12. LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair

If you ever wanted a pink gaming chair that is a whole lot cheaper than a Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair, the LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair comes in that color!

And it has armrests that can recline and are adequately padded.

What’s surprising is that it even has a back massage function! Something you don’t even see on pricier gaming chairs!

Other than this, the LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair has recently been upgraded to nylon legs supposedly for additional support and increased longevity.

This gaming chair is easy to set up (within 30 minutes) and is comfortable to sit in. However, it definitely isn’t made for heavier users (~100kg and above) or wider frames. And can feel shaky at times.

In all frankness, the quality matches the price:

And you have to expect some defects like loose or spotty armrests, or uneven wheels, imperfect stitching, screw poking out, etc.

The upholstery can also feel hot after long periods of use.

There is an option to include a leg rest with your purchase. But the leg rest is fragile, and actually lessens the stability of the chair when you use it! Furthermore, it doesn’t suit those around 185cm.

That said, the LIKE REGAL Ergonomic Racing Style Adjustable Gaming Chair will do the job for small budgets and people of petite stature.

But if you are taller and can pay a little more, go for the TTRacing Duo V3 Gaming Chair instead!

13. CHAHO Height Adjustable Reclining E-Sports Gaming Chair

For under RM300, the CHAHO Height Adjustable Reclining E-Sports Gaming Chair is very comfy for its low price point! It has removable neck and lumbar pillows! But you’ll probably want to keep these on!

The chair can recline quite far back as well and is stable too! One user claims that it’s the most comfortable chair they have ever tried. The armrests are thick too.

However, some users find that the cushion is quite thin and can feel hard at the sides. There are minor defects in the workmanship.

And while the chair is very easy to assemble (10-15 minutes with reference to the manual), it doesn’t move as easily as other gaming chairs once you sit on it.

A common observation from users is that the base of the seat is quite narrow. And thus not suited to broad thighs or those that like to sit cross legged.

Those under 5 feet 6, and below 100kg can still fit this chair well.

Note: Self-assembly and the manual is in Chinese (though with pictures).

Gaming Chairs Vs. Office Chairs

Unlike office chairs:

Gaming chairs are made to support you comfortably for long hours of gameplay with the best gaming laptop in Malaysia!

These stylish chairs often resemble racing seat with bucket seat designs. There may be some bright color accents too along the paneling and sides of the chairs too to keep things interesting.

And most are able to recline with ample support for your back, neck and head.

How To Choose A Gaming Chair

1. Your Height And Weight

If you’re not of average height and weight that most chairs are made for:

You’ll want to pay more attention to the height and weight dimensions of the chair. Along with the maximum weight the chair can bear!

Take a good look at the wheels and base too! Caster wheels are common for their durability.

2. Cushioning And Support

A gaming chair that’s firmer will retain its structure for longer and back-saving properties better!

However, there’s no gaming chair that can replace a proper massage chair

3. Adjustability

Your gaming chair should be adjustable for a comfortable fit. You should be able to adjust things like the head rest height, seat height and tilt angle.

Some gaming chairs enable you to change the position of the armrests! Or angle of recline!

Built-in headrests and lumbar support typically cannot be adjusted for users of different height so take that into consideration if the chair will be used by other people besides yourself!

4. Material

This determines the longevity and breath-ability of the chair!

Most gaming chairs have a cover of faux leather (PU) or vinyl. As these are easy to clean but also prone to flaking over time.

And they can feel warm and get unpleasantly sticky fast on hot days in a room without air-conditioning.

Fabric gaming chairs exist. And these are more breathable than their PU counterparts.

And of course, there are gaming chairs that use a combination of fabric and faux leather.

5. Budget

Gaming chair prices in Malaysia can be anywhere between RM300-1,600!

Don’t stinge on a gaming chair if you plan to be spending many hours at your gaming station! Cheaper chairs will not last as long too.

Conclusion

Whether it’s for work or leisure, the best gaming chairs in Malaysia can elevate your comfort level (and mood)! And we have listed our top picks by category at the top of this post.

The cheapest gaming chairs are around RM400. But if you are heavier or have a large frame, prepare to spend more for a stable chair that can support your weight!
