Quersus V501/XR Gaming Chair Review
I spend plenty of my day sitting on my bottom which isn’t nice I do know nevertheless it’s one of many necessities of the job. When I’m not working, further time is spent gaming which entails extra sitting, typically for lengthy durations.
Over the years I’ve tried every kind of chairs to assist with my posture and luxury when sitting for lengthy durations and discovering a great chair has proved troublesome. In current years, we’ve seen particular gaming chairs change into extra widespread however many supply little or no profit. The racing chair design is the preferred, and whereas some look snazzy and manly with their excessive backs, it doesn’t essentially translate into consolation when sitting in it for lengthy durations.
In this review, we’re having a look on the Quersus VAOS 500 vary of chairs that are on the higher finish of the gaming chair spectrum relating to worth. The mannequin I’ve been testing this week is the V501/XR which is a suitably manly crimson and black quantity with typical racing seat styling.
Gaming chairs generally is a actual ache to place . Cheaper chairs are usually not as nicely constructed and issues equivalent to screws not aligning with holes are frequent in price range ranges. I used to be not trying ahead to setting up the Quersus based mostly on previous experiences with gaming chairs however as soon as the big well-packed field was pried open, it was a pleasant shock to not discover a field of 500 screws and unusual trying bits of metallic.
The field accommodates a equipment with a complete of 10 bolts (2 spare in case lose one), a base, seat, hydraulic raise, chair base, chair again, wheels and a L-shaped metallic joint to connect the bottom to the again. The chair additionally comes with some detailed directions on find out how to put all of it which makes a change. More usually than not you’re left to determine it out from some crude drawings. The directions are additionally multilingual.
The primary chair mechanics are hooked up to the bottom of the chair with four of the bolts, the wheels are then hooked up to the wheelbase, the L-shaped metallic piece is hooked up with base of the seat with a few bolts after which the again slides onto the upward dealing with piece of metallic and hooked up with two bolts.
Putting the bolts in place was extremely simple for as soon as because of their design. They have a big head which might be turned together with your fingers after which as soon as in place are tightened with an allen key which can be supplied. It took a complete of 23 minutes to place the chair from begin to end with one particular person. This was an enormous reduction. I envisaged myself weeping over an instruction handbook for a lot of the afternoon.
With the chair now in place, it was time to check out a number of the options and it is a chair that covers all bases. I’m 6ft tall and the again of the chair is an ideal top to permit your head to relaxation simply and it comes with an attachable formed pillow that moulds to the again of the neck for additional consolation. And it’s comfy.
The chair might be tilted again and locked in place by way of a lever beneath the chair and a spherical deal with to regulate the rocking movement. The chair can tilt again fairly far, additional than you would wish a chair to tilt again except you needed to a sneaky snooze. The seat base additionally tilts again barely which improves the consolation on the again of the legs.
A second lever beneath the chair adjusts the peak by way of the hydraulics and the peak vary is great making the chair very adjustable relying on an individual’s measurement or desk top. The raise and decreasing motion can be extremely clean and responsive.
An issue that I discover with some chairs are the armrests. I favor them to be adjustable so a chair might be slid beneath a desk and likewise positioned appropriately relying on how I’m sitting whereas gaming or working. The Quersus actually delivers right here. The armrests are absolutely adjustable for top and they are often rotated each in the best way and out the best way. That’s not all although, the arm rests might be slid both in the best way or out the best way which is right when you have a big or small body. Every base has been coated to make it possible for your mouse hand is nicely supported.
Chairs may cause every kind of again issues and Quersus has added a assist characteristic contained in the again of the chair. On the aspect of the again, there’s a nob which might be rotated, and when turned, additional again assist contained in the chair strikes both in or out to offer decrease again assist. This is a superb characteristic and offers some refined and efficient assist which actually enhances the consolation degree of the chair.
The seat masking is a troublesome artificial materials and the seat and again of the seat are extremely nicely padded offering wonderful assist and never permitting you to sink proper into the chair, which is an issue with chairs the place the fabric used inside is just too gentle to supply any actual assist and finally ends up compressing in a short time.
Having used the chair for a couple of days this week I’m very impressed with the standard of supplies used. It feels substantial; every bit of the chair is solidly constructed, even all the way down to the person parts such because the bolts. It additionally glides throughout the ground effortlessly because of some strong wheels. It’s a excessive spec piece of gaming/workplace furnishings and so they clearly stand by that as there’s a two-year normal guarantee on all of the chairs. You can even add your identify on to the chair for some additional customisation for a small charge.
The Quersus is actually not the most affordable gaming chair in the marketplace at round 360 Euros (this V501 is the mid-range mannequin within the Quersus line-up), however for those who’re a critical gamer who spends plenty of time in entrance of the display. I extremely suggest the V501/XR chair. It’s comfy, affords nice assist, is feature-packed and positively price each penny.
