The world is now awash with gaming chairs. Gone are the days when you were ultra-limited in choice, now it’s getting nigh-on impossible to make a choice without some well-informed help. Fortunately, that’s where WePC comes in. We test so many gaming chairs so that you don’t make a mistake and get something that isn’t right for you.
AutoFull is another of the fast-growing chair makers that have shot to prominence over the last 12-18 months and with good reason. As some of the most successful such as Secretlab have been hit hard by demand, impatient gamers have had to look elsewhere to avoid huge waiting times on delivery. By having readily available stock, good customer service, and great-looking gaming chairs, we can welcome Autofull to the top table.
Let’s have a look at some of the best of what they offer.
Our Top Picks
Notice anything unusual about this rabbit? I mean gaming chair. Welcome to the gaming chair that is very definitely aimed at a certain demographic.
The fact that there is a great deal of design work gone into this, even though that design probably won’t appeal to the majority of potential customers, is what gives this chair the edge for me. It fills a great niche, looks fab, and is pretty well made. Oh, and it’s reasonably priced too.
Pitching up like some kind of racing and office chair hybrid, we have this great ergonomic offering with large lumbar support.
From the photo, you might be thinking it looks a nice gaming chair, but you can’t quite put your finger on what is making it not quite have that premium feel. Well trust us, it is the photograph as this chair actually feels more expensive than it actually is, once you get your hands on it.
If you have the room to stretch out and maybe even have a quick nap, then this might be the AutoFull chair for you.
Very similar to the runner-up chair above but with the addition of a built-in footrest to help those aching trotters after a hard day’s gaming.
Once again available in a number of color options to suit most decors
It’s important to realize here that you are going to be buying a piece of furniture that will hopefully last you many years, and, more importantly, provide you with a level of comfort while you are sat at your PC, that you might not have previously had. Therefore, before you click Buy, spare a thought for the following.
The cost of gaming chairs can vary quite dramatically. the big-name companies are all going to be charging considerably more for their wares but there is a reason for that. generally, the materials used are of much higher quality, this is how the cheaper manufacturers can trim down their price so much. With this trimming down also comes a reduction in comfort. Extra support cushions aren’t included, the foam used in the seat and back sections won’t be as high quality and may lose its shape quicker than you would like. The seat itself might not recline or even feel as sturdy.
What we are saying, and we certainly don’t always suggest you go for the higher ticket items, but when it comes to gaming chairs you generally get what you pay for. It all depends on how happy you are to compromise.
The last couple of years have definitely seen a move away from the huge gamification of gaming chairs. No longer are we only different bright green chairs with orange lightning bolts emblazoned across them but you can now get high-quality gaming chairs that do not look out of place in any corner of your home. You need to decide whether you want one that’s more akin to a big padded ‘bosses’ office chair or stick with the racing-style so popular in years gone by. It’s also worth considering you may redecorate before your chair reaches the end of its life so that bright yellow racing chair may not fit in so well in the future.
The weight limit on most of these gaming chairs is less of a concern than on a traditional office or computer chair. That’s because these chairs are already based on the floor, and therefore aren’t likely to collapse if they have a sturdy frame.
The only real exceptions to these rules are the Intex Inflatable Chair and the X Rocker Pedestal Chair. The Inflatable Chair is much more strict about its weight limit since it risks popping if you go over it, while the Pedestal in the other chair may give away if you stress it too much for too long.
Besides those chairs, though, you’re probably just fine being 350+ lbs and using these chairs on the floor. They should be reasonably comfortable, too, but you can also check the measurements on them if you’re particularly wide.
Features are another big thing, but the main one at play here is audio.
For whatever reason, most people expect gaming chairs to have built-in speakers for an immersive gaming audio experience. If this interests you and you don’t mind a few extra steps of setup, you should probably opt into it.
If this doesn’t interest you, though, don’t waste your money. Focus on buying a comfortable chair instead.
Best AutoFull Gaming Chair
Head and lumbar support
Great, if niche, design
Easy to put together
Gas lift not great for heavier gamers
Faux leather isn’t that premium feeling
Okay so you have to be looking for a very particular type of gaming chair for this or to tick your box, but we think it will appeal to many gamers out there and the fact it is a bit of a rarity and designed so well is why we have given it our top spot in this round-up of best AutoFull gaming chairs.
Firstly, once you have got over the fact that if you buy this you are going to receive a gaming chair that is not only pink but includes pink rabbit ears as well you can start looking at the other plus points. This is certainly not a chair you want to purchase by mistake though!
A lot of gaming chairs seem to be using the fact that they swivel a full 360 degrees as a selling point these days, and this one is no exception, but I can’t ever remember seeing a wheeled chair you couldn’t spin around and make yourself dizzy on before. What do I know though?
Beneath the baby pink exterior is a sturdy metal frame upon which you can attach the rabbit kit – yes, I said kit, because it was a surprise to find not only do you get the ears but you get a bunny tail too. I mean, why would you not do?
Feels more expensive than it is
Several color options
Some of the finishing leaves a little to be desired
Coming with a large lumbar support and head pillow as standard, there are a lot of different color options to suit most decors with this gaming seat. Styling is pretty smart, and as you can tell the chair is certainly roomy. In fact, you would be well advised to make sure you have the space for it if you are planning to position it in a small location. The photos make it look shinier (and therefore perhaps, unfairly, cheaper looking than it appears in real life, where it comes into its own and could easily pass for a gaming thair that costs more than this one actually does.
Its sturdy metal frame easily supports all but the heaviest of gamers and, although the armrests can be a bit fiddly to move about, the level of adjustability is also good.
To sum everything up then, if you are looking for a gaming chair that won’t cost the earth and won’t seem as though you are penny-pinching either, this could a great option.
Support cushions included
Questions over long-term durability
This gaming chair is very similar to the above, but it has the addition of a footrest attached to it. Now, this may or may not be of use to you. Obviously, the majority of PC gamers tend to be at a desk which probably makes a footrest somewhat moot as there certainly isn’t room under mine for me to have a full stretch-out. But if you are fortunate enough to have space for a nice relax you can turn it into pretty much a bed by reclining it all the way down and firing ut the footrest. yeah, it’s probably a bit of a gimmick rather than uber-useful but if you feel a footrest is for you then this is a great option, especially, like its smaller sibling, this chair feels a lot more premium than you might expect for the price.
For us, a good gaming chair is a complete necessity. Finding the right one can be determined by several key areas. The following is a list of the areas which we consider most important when selecting a quality chair:
- Ergonomic Design
- Chair Functionality
- Lumbar support
- Build materials & quality
Ultimately, if the chair you’re looking to buy can tick off a few of these fundamental criteria, you’re more than likely onto a winner. However, finding a chair that houses all these qualities can sometimes be expensive and challenging, meaning you have to spend endless amounts of time researching numerous different options.
This is where WePC comes into the equation. Our team of dedicated computer enthusiasts spend their days researching and testing the best hardware offerings on the market and have focused their energy on this guide on finding the best gaming chair.
It might well be that you have stumbled across AutoFull while searching for gaming chairs from one of the well-established premium manufacturers and that’s fine. This is a company that is going places and looking like they are getting there fast. The quality of the gaming chair in the mid-to-premium price bracket is shooting up all the time and you can get so much more for your money now than you could just 18-months ago.
There are always going to have to be compromises if you aren’t able to spend the absolute top-dollar but these chairs from AutoFull maybe don’t make you feel as though you are having to make as many. Yes we have gone for a pink chair with bunny ears as our top choice, and also realize that won’t be the top choice for many of you, but it is a shining example of how companies are beginning to try and stand out to differentiate themselves in what is becoming a very crowded market place.
So maybe if you don’t want to drop $500 on a piece of furniture, looking to a company such as AutoFull may well still fulfill your dreams of owning a high-quality gaming chair after all.
