The Secretlab Omega Chair is an amazing bit of kit as far as chairs are concerend. Its has a great construction and the build quiality is fantastic. It has that wounderful new smell as soon as you open the box.
It doesn’t just look like quality, it even smells like quality!
I did my own research and read review after review and watched youtube video after youtube videos of people unboxing and setting up chairs and giving their views on why they purchased that particulare chair. I even looked at some office chairs as well as i will also be using the chair for work in my home office.
My short list of gaming chairs was down to:
- Herman Miller
- SecretLab Omega Chair
- Noble Chairs
Why did i choose the Secretlab Omega Chair?
There are a lot of great chairs to choose from and we are spoilt for choice when it comes to gaming chairs so i finalized the logical way, spreadsheet of all the important factors!
|Manufacture||Availability||Does it look Cool||Cost||Warranty||Warranty / Cost = Cost per day|
|Herman Miller Embody Chair||8-9 Weeks||No||£999||12 years||22 pence|
|2-4 Weeks||Yes||£329||3 years (+2 year extension)||18 pence|
|CORSAIR T2 ROAD WARRIOR Gaming Chair||Next Day||Yes||£299||2 years||41 pence|
|Noble Chairs - HERO GAMING CHAIR||2-3 Days||Yes||£349||2 years||47 pence|
I like to work out how much things cost me per day over the expected life span of the warrenty. When costs are worked out like this it is straightforward to see if soemthing really is good value or not. The costs are calculated to cover the warranty period but i am sure that all these chairs will last way longer than that.
Herman Miller – All though i will be spending a lot of time in my new purchase i just can’t bring myself to spend £999 on a chair, no matter the quality. Lots of the reviews almost suggested if i can’t afford the £999 to seek out a used one or that this is the ONLY option ever to consider. This didn’t sit well with me, LOL and i felt a lot of the review’s seemed fake.
SecretLab – Amazing looking chairs in a price range i felt happy about. 18 pence a day is great value for this quality product and in 5 years i can buy a new one and still have change in my pocket over the Herman Miller model! The tilt option on these is also a winner for me so i can lay right back and watch some movies.
Corsair – Great reputation within the gaming industry and litraly a name you can count on, but it has limited designs/colours and also expensive on the day price.
Noble Chairs – The most expensive chair on day price but also a great looking chair. Has lots of options and colour to choose from but no funky designs.
Unboxing my Secret Lab Omega Chair
I Purchased my Secretlab Omega Chair, OG Model in June 2020
This is not a full unboxing and assembly review as there are plenty of these on the internet and there own Omega 2020 Assembly Video is great
I was very pleased when my Secretlab gaming chair actually arrived early, it was way sooner than what was estimated on the website when i orderd it. Its comes in a rather large box weighing just over 30KG so be carfull when you try and pick it up.
The assembly instructions are great and describes the process well. I completed the full unbox to assembly, unrushed, in about 30mins.
I was being very careful while assembling as there are warning messages on the inside lid explaining DO NOT TOUCH BACKREST RECLINE LEVER. So, you have been warned.
To be honest, this did make me wounder what would happen if i did pull it and it just made me want to pull the lever even more to see what happens. Anyone have any ideas? Please comment…
Secretlab Gaming Chair – The Best Gaming Comfort
I have used my Secretlab Omega Chair for just over a week now and in this little amount of time i have noticed a great deal of difference in my posture over its predicessor. I feel the firm seat combines with the soft cushions has really helped me sit correctly.
I certainly dont get those stiff legs when i stand up from sitting for a long time and my back also feels much better as i find myselkf sitting upright more.
How to get your Secretlab Gaming Chair 5-Year Extended Warranty
All the Secretlab Gaming Chairs come with a 3 year warranty but can be extended to 5 years if you post a picture of your Secretlabs Chair on twitter or facebook
I think this is a great idea to show off your chair to your friends and it also gets Secretlab some clever advertising and web links back to there website.
