The best gaming chair for your needs should be comfortable and have an ergonomic design, and that’s not exactly easy to judge when you’re looking online.

One problem is that a lot of PC gaming chairs look pretty much the same. They also offer a dizzying array of features: mesh, breathable mesh, faux leather, lumbar support pillow, tilt mechanism, gaming recliner, adjustable backrest, padded armrest, footrest, bucket seat, rocker and more. And a chair is something you need first-hand (well, maybe not hand…) experience to judge.

The chairs tested here (and most of the ones we researched) share a lot of similarities: caster wheels and seat padding for extra comfort and

DXRacer Master gaming chair review

You know a gaming chair is good when you can sit in one without getting sore for a week of 14-hour gaming sessions as you scramble to review Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. That’s what I’ve been doing with the new DXRacer Master gaming chair, which serendipitously arrived around the same time as Ubisoft’s sprawling (and very big) action RPG. 

In my previous chair, that kind of sit-down review marathon would’ve been disastrous for my poor ass—not to mention my knees, neck, and back—despite studiously taking the time to stretch and move around. But DXRacer’s latest chair is something special: It’s an extremely comfortable and luxurious gaming chair that can be easily customized with modular parts. Parts, such as a rotating bracket that can hold a laptop, for example.

Those modular components are a big part of the Master’s sales pitch. It’s a chair that’s meant to be tailor-made to your specific

  • The US economy won’t return to the exact same state it was in before the pandemic, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said Thursday.
  • The health crisis is accelerating digitization throughout the economy, and Americans already slammed by the virus’s fallout are at the highest risk of losing their jobs, he said at a virtual conference hosted by the European Central Bank.
  • “We’re not going to the same economy,” he said, adding that “relatively low-paid, public-facing workers in the service sector” could be swiftly displaced.
  • “There’s going to be a substantial group of workers who are going to need support” as they look to return to their old jobs or find entirely new work, Powell said.

New Gaming Chair Company Aims To Save Streamers And Esports Stars From Back Pain

For esports stars and streamers sitting at a PC for upwards of eight hours a day is nothing new, and 24-hour streams are concerningly common. For anyone, no matter how well they prepare their bodies away from the PC, being stationary at a computer for this long is going to be an issue, and the stylish, but often poorly suited racing style gaming chairs that dominate the market do not help. 

That is where the new gaming chair company Mavix comes in. The company is launching a new line of three chairs, the M5, M7 and M9, and compared to what you would instantly think of as a gaming chair they look very different. Gone is the racing chair style, with heavy leather and a bulky back, replaced with mesh, light materials and an ergonomic design that is more suited to
