    Most Affordable Gaming Chairs in Singapore

    Gaming chairs can get extremely costly, especially when we look towards popular brands such as Secretlab.

    Here are some of the most value-for-money gaming chairs that don’t compromise on the comfort and features available!

    1. UMD Gaming Chair ($141)

    UMD Gaming Chair in red

    Main features

     Reclinable backrest

    For its price point, the UMD Gaming Chair has an impressive reclinable backrest of up to 180-degree. It also has a rocking function that allows users to lean back comfortably in their seats as they take a break from the screen.

     Adjustable features

    It has a series of adjustable features including its height, backrest, headrest and armrests, allowing for a certain level of customisation according to the user’s build.

    Drawbacks

     Thin backrest

    The chair has relatively less cushioning on the backrest as compared to the other chairs on this list.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 130kg
    Warranty: 1 year

    2. Homall High-Back Racing Chair ($264)

    Homall High Back Racing Chair in yellow

    Main features

     Reclinable backrest

    The backrest is capable of reclining by up to 180-degree, catering for comfortable seating and even a nap in between games!

     Multi-directional wheels

    Its multi-directional wheels allow for dynamic movement and 360-degree manoeuvring.

    Drawbacks

     Limited recline angle

    While the height of the chair and its backrest is adjustable, the height of the armrests is fixed. This lacks the flexibility to cater to users of all builds.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, high-density shaping foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: Not available

    3. Respawn-110 ($283)

    Respawn-110 in black

    Main features

     Padded armrests, adjustable headrest and lumbar pillows

    Respawn-110 provides padded armrests for additional comfort and its headrest and lumbar pillows are adjustable to fully suit users’ needs.

     Extendable footrest

    The chair comes with an extendable footrest, offering extra comfort to cater for long gaming hours.

    Drawbacks

     Limited recline angle

    The backrest is limited to a 155-degree recline, making it relatively less flexible than its counterparts that offer a 180-degree recline.

    Specifications
    Materials: Bonded leather, metal frame
    Weight capacity: 125kg
    Warranty: OFM Limited Lifetime Warranty

    4. Nitro S300 ($299)

    Nitro S300 in red

    Main features

     3D armrests

    The Nitro S300 is one of the two chairs in this list equipped with 3D armrests. Not only is the height adjustable, these armrests can also be moved inward, outward, forward, or backward.

     Fabric cover

    While the vast majority of gaming chairs boast a PU leather or PVC leather upholstery, the Nitro S300 sets itself apart with a fabric cover. The chair’s all-fabric upholstery is breathable and smooth, ensuring comfort for prolonged usage.

    Drawbacks

     Non spill-resistant cover

    The drawback of its fabric upholstery lies in the difficulty of cleaning the cover. It’s also not spill-resistant, so users have to be extra careful when consuming food and drinks on the chair.

    Specifications
    Materials: Fabric cover, cold foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 135kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    5. Arozzi Verona V2 ($379)

    Arozzi Verona V2 in Black
    Image credit: Arozzi

    Main features

     Reclinable backrest

    Users can take a short nap in their chair with the 180-degree reclining backrest. The lever located on the side of the seat allows users to adjust the backrest easily.

     12-degree tilt

    Using the adjustment wheel, users can tilt the chair by up to 12-degree. Users can then relax and rock in their chair during short breaks.

    Drawbacks

     Low weight capacity

    This chair has the lowest weight capacity amongst the chairs in this section. As such, it might not be the most suitable option for bigger-sized users.

     2D armrests

    While the armrests allow for height adjustments, it’s seemingly lacking as compared to the AKRacing Core SX and Vertagear SL4000 below, which offer 3D and 4D armrests at a similar price point.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, high-density shaped foam, metal frame
    Weight capacity: 105kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    6. AKRacing Core SX ($399)

    AKRacing Core SX

    Main features

     12-degree tilt lock

    Aside from its 180o reclinable backrest, the chair comes with a 12-degree tilt lock that allows for greater stability when you lean backwards.

     3D armrests

    The AKRacing Core SX is the only other chair in this section with 3D armrests. Similarly, the armrests can be adjusted upward, downward, inward, outward, forward or backwards.

    Drawbacks

     Harder seat cushion

    Being made of cold cure foam padding, the chair seat may feel slightly harder and even be uncomfortable to certain users.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, cold cure foam padding, metal frame
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    7. Vertagear SL4000 ($400)

    Vertagear SL4000 in green

    Main features

     High-density back padding

    The Vertagear SL4000 offers higher-density padding for added back support while ensuring that the backrest remains breathable.

     4D armrests

    This chair goes beyond 3D armrests to provide users with armrests that can be adjusted at an angle. They can also be adjusted to users’ desired length and width. This ensures that users of all builds can sit comfortably in the chair.

     Adjustable tilt tension mechanism

    The chair comes with a knob that allows users to tweak the tension according to their weight. It also comes with a locking mechanism to provide greater stability so users can rock in the chair comfortably.

    Drawbacks

     Limited recline angle

    Despite its standout features above, its backrest is limited to a 140o recline.

    Specifications
    Materials: PVC leather, high-density foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: 2 years


    Best Gaming Chairs in Singapore Used By Popular Streamers and Professional Gamers

    For users who are less budget-conscious, we have put together a list of the best gaming chairs in Singapore used by popular streamers and professional gamers.

    While the prices of these chairs typically fall into the higher range, most of them come with unique features that provide great ergonomic support.

    8. Noblechairs Epic ($379)

    Used by: Pokimane | Twitch | 5.4M followers

    Main features

     Enhanced breathability

    The Noblechairs Epic comes with small perforations to improve the overall breathability of the chair. Thus, air and moisture can easily pass through the material and users are less likely to feel warm after sitting in the chair for extended periods of time.

     4D armrests

    The armrests can be adjusted to the right, left, up or down. They can also be placed at an angle for greater comfort.

    Drawbacks

     Dense padding

    The padding may feel uncomfortable for some users due to the stiffness and denseness of the material. However, this dense cushioning provides better ergonomic support.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, cold foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 120kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    9. Noblechairs Hero ($459)

    Noblechairs Hero in black

    Used by: Summit1G | Twitch | 5.3M followers

    Main features

     Cater for bigger users

    The Noblechairs Hero comes with a taller backrest, wider seats and larger armrests. This makes it a good option for bigger users.

     Internal lumbar support

    This chair boasts an internal lumbar that’s located beneath the cover and foam padding. The amount of support can be determined by users based on their preference using a knob located at the side of the chair.

    Drawbacks

     Limited reclinable backrest

    Among all the chairs listed in this article, the Noblechairs Hero has one of the most limited reclinable backrests of up to 125o.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, cold foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    10. Secretlab Titan ($549)

    Secretlab Titan

    Used by: DrLupo | Twitch | 4.1M followers

    Main features

     Integrated lumbar support

    The Secretlab Titan was the first to implement and produce the integrated lumbar support function. Like the Noblechairs Hero, the support is built into the backrest of the chair and it can be adjusted using the knob on the side of the chair.

     Forward recline

    Most chairs focus on the backward recline function. However, this chair allows for back support even while leaning forward. The backrest can be reclined forward by up to 85o.

    Drawbacks

     Lumbar support pillow

    As the chair is equipped with an integrated lumbar support, it doesn’t come with an additional lumbar pillow. However, this only affects users who prefer an additional pillow aside from the built-in support.

    Specification
    Materials: PU leather, cold-cure foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 130kg
    Warranty: 3 years

    11. Secretlab Omega ($549)

    Secretlab Omega in black

    Used by: Evil Geniuses | ESports Team

    Main features

     Multi-tilt mechanism

    The chair’s multi-tilt mechanism functions similar to the tilt lock of other brands, with the added advantage of being able to tilt backwards in an upright position. This gives users greater flexibility and control over the movement of their chairs.

     Memory foam pillow

    The Secretlab Omega comes with a memory foam head pillow and lumbar pillow respectively. These pillows will soften to suit the shape of the users’ body, providing greater overall comfort.

    Drawbacks

     Low weight capacity

    This chair is less suitable for bigger users given the low weight capacity of 110kg as compared to the Secretlab Titan which has a capacity of 130kg.

    Specification
    Materials: PU leather, cold-cure foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 110kg
    Warranty: 3 years

    12. Vertagear SL2000 ($584)

    Vertagear SL2000 in white

    Used by: Dakotaz | Twitch | 4.5M followers

    Main features

     Double back support

    The Vertagear SL2000 comes with a lumbar and high-back support to ensure that it provides users with the ultimate ergonomic back support.

     Aluminium alloy base

    The base of the chair is made of aluminium alloy, ensuring that it’s especially solid, stable and lightweight. 

    Drawbacks

     2D non-padded armrests

    With many of the higher-end gaming chairs offering 3D and 4D armrests, the Vertagear SL2000 falls behind its competitors with non-padded armrests that are only able to move upwards or downwards.

    Specification
    Materials: PVC leather, high-density resilience foam, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: Not available

    13. Vertagear Triiger 350 ($980)

    Vertagear Triiger 350 in black

    Used by: Myth | Twitch | 6.7M followers

    Main features

     Multi-directional lumbar support

    The chair has a built-in lumbar support, in which users can adjust the angle of the entire back frame. This provides ergonomic support according to the user’s preference.

     Multi-directional headrest

    Unlike other gaming chairs, the headrest for the Triiger 350 is a separate component to the chair. As it’s removable, users can opt to install the headrest whenever necessary. It also allows the user to adjust its height and angle, offering maximum comfort.

     Adjustable seat depth

    The seat of the chair can be shifted back or forth, depending on users’ preference. This helps to determine the amount of support given to the back.

    Drawbacks

     Design

    The Triiger 350 combines mesh fabric with calfskin leather. Thus, it may look less stylish as compared to other designs that feature an entire leather upholstery. 

    Specifications
    Materials: Aluminium alloy frame, calfskin leather, mesh fabric
    Weight capacity: 150kg
    Warranty: 2 years

    14. Herman Miller Aeron Chair ($1,780)

    Herman Miller Aeron Chair in Black

    Used by: Shroud | Twitch | 8.1M followers

    Main features

     Posturefit adjustment

    The posturefit adjustment helps to provide support for the spine and lower back. It also ensures that the chair aligns to the natural curvature of the user’s spine.

     Adjustable lumbar support

    The lumbar support pad that’s located behind the fabric mesh backrest can be adjusted to the desired height along the backrest. The customisable support ensures that the chair is suited to the curves and shapes of users.

    Drawbacks

     Lack of neck and head support

    The Aeron chair doesn’t include a headrest like the Triiger 350. Thus, users have to purchase an additional headrest to provide the neck and head support needed for the ultimate experience.

    Specifications
    Materials: Fabric, graphite frame
    Weight capacity: 136kg
    Warranty: 12 years

    15. Sidiz T80 ($1,969)

    Used by: DrDisrespect | YouTube | 2.93M followers

    Main features

     Adjustable seat slide/slope

    The slide or slope of the seat can be customised based on the individual. Additionally, it’s made of memory foam and high elastic sponges to conform to the shape of the user’s body. This ensures optimal comfort.

     Tilting tension

    The tilting tension offers users the option to select their desired resistance with regard to the tilt of their chairs. This added personalisation ensures that it caters to the needs of different users.

    Drawbacks

     Chair materials

    The classic Sidiz T80 is a combination of mesh and fabric upholstery. Users who prefer a leather cover can instead opt for the Marvel editions of the chair which come with a PU leather seat upholstery.

    Specifications
    Materials: Mesh, fabric, steel frame
    Weight capacity: 115kg
    Warranty: 10 years

    16. DXRacer Sentinel Series OH ($2,099)

    DXRacer Sentinel OH in red

    Used by: Jacksepticeye | YouTube | 24.6M followers

    Main features

     Multi-functional tilt mechanism

    The multi-functional tilt mechanism is an all-in-one lever that can adjust for both the chair’s height and tilt. The lever also comes with a tilt lock to provide resistance when leaning or rocking backwards.


     4D armrests

    The DXRacer Sentinel armrests can be adjusted at an angle or shifted to the right or left. The height can also be adjusted to suit the user’s height.

    Drawbacks

     Limited reclinable backrest

    The backrest of this chair is less flexible than its counterparts as it’s limited to a recline of up to 120o.

     Limited differentiation

    For its price, the DXRacer Sentinel lacks unique features to differentiate itself from competitors, making it less competitive overall.

    Specifications
    Materials: PU leather, high-density mould shaping foam, metal frame
    Weight capacity: 125kg
    Warranty: 1 year

    17. Herman Miller Embody Chair ($2,298)

    Herman Miller Embody Chair in black

    Used by: Sodapoppin | Twitch | 2.8M followers

    Main features

     Pixelated support

    The chair’s unique feature is its pixelated support, which provides even support across all points of the user’s body regardless of the posture. This reduces the pressure and stress on the user’s back and shoulders, promoting maximum ergonomic support and comfort.

     Backfit adjustment

    The backrest can be adjusted to align with the natural curve of the user’s spine. This ensures a balanced posture and even support for the back.

    Drawbacks

     Lack of forward tilt

    The Embody chair doesn’t come with a forward tilt adjustment like the Aeron chair. Thus, it lacks support with regard to this aspect.

    Specifications
    Materials: Fabric, graphite frame
    Weight capacity: 136kg
    Warranty: 12 years
