In case you didn’t know DXRacer is likely the most famous gaming chair maker known for their high-quality, very comfortable and healthy seats. Although this is one of their Racing Series chairs it’s different from the rest in having the ability to contain a bigger person what seems to be a part of why it so popular.

Looks

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RV001/NB Newedge Edition ReviewThis chair has one really beautiful and simple design which I am certainly a fan of.

Meat & Bones

First and foremost, like most of DXRacer gaming chairs, or most of the high-end gaming chairs for that matter, it has racing car-seat design that makes it look so game-ish. In this particular case the seat’s curves are very neat and clean, parts shaped and sized just right. As far as seat design goes – you just couldn’t ask for more as DXRacers originally started out as actual racing car-seat makers.

In addition to that it also has very cool black inlaid theme color bar metal looking base which is just cool. Each of the the legs are thin and edgy with a line in the middle giving off this nice “fast” feeling I just love, enjoy and would like to take to bed. Besides, it has 3″ casters that are just the right size to become a good addition to the thin legs.

One last thing that completes the gaming chair picture is straight 4D armrests. Shaped in unique way they also have sharp looking edges what I think goes really good with the rest of the chair’s design.

Skin

Blue and black colors this chair has going on are a pretty good choice for a gaming chair. Light blue color really rings the bell when we are talking about gaming. The layout of the color is very nice and outlined edges of the chair make it look sharper.

What I also find to my liking about DOH/RV001/NB is carbon looking vinyl cover. Being black colored it reflects light fairly well what goes together with metal looking base pretty great. While not visible from afar it does have part patterned like carbon at I think it looks simply awesome.

If there is something I find a bit lacking, it’s the edginess in the light blue color layout shapes.

P.S. Embroidered logo on the headrest with a letter “R”  colored in the theme color also looks pretty darn nice.

Performance & Longevity

Neither longevity nor performance is an issue with this PC gaming chair. It’s built of highest quality materials and parts necessary to perform well for a long time.

Bones

Made from metal, the frame is very sturdy it even has a lifetime warranty on it. Unless you decide to actually swap it with your real car seat, breaking it would be close to impossible.

Unlike real car seats, this seat is attached to a base and not the ground so all of the effort wouldn’t amount to much if the base wasn’t strong enough to handle all the fanciness at the top. But neither is that an issue because it does have a metal base that could probably handle at least one-and-a-half times more weight than recommended maximum. But parts that get worked the most are none other than casters. To able to handle all that weight usual PVC casters wouldn’t be good enough. That’s why this pc gaming chair has PU 3″ casters. Not only is PU a lot more durable and elastic than PVC and therefore a better a solution for big loads, it’s a lot easier on the flooring too.

Meat & Skin

Besides ultra-tough metal frame, this chair has 50 kg/m³ high-density cold cure foam what is the same density as your typical car seat. Needless to say, car seats tend to maintain their original form for long many years and so does this chair’s seat.

Big part of the seat for this model is covered with vinyl what is a shorthand name for PVC. Although PVC chair covers are often quick to wear out, if treated properly last long. Seeing as DXRacers only use highest quality materials to make their chairs I was a little surprised to hear it was made from PVC. Further delving into the issue I haven’t found any comments about the chair cover wearing out so I assume it’s a case of a well treated pvc and is not going to wear out quick.

Joints

Mechanisms and other moving parts seems are top quality and doesn’t seem to have come up as a problem for any of the customers. However, this brand doesn’t manufacture some of the parts this chair has such as height gas-spring. In rare cases an unlucky customers may receive a part from a faulty batch but it has nothing to do with the chair itself.

Take a peek at how one of their chairs look from the inside.

Comfort

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RV001/NB Newedge Edition is insanely comfortable gaming chair if you fit the recommended weight and height. As mentioned before, it’s made from high-density “cold cure” foam what means you are comfortable sitting in it for many continuous hours.

Adding to the comfort factor you have an adjustable angle reclining function you can use for long gaming sessions at night. I always find myself falling asleep using the reclining function and it’s really useful for things besides just napping.

Then you have a multi-functional tilt mechanism which you can lock at any angle from 1 to 14 degrees or just leave it unlocked and rock it back and forth. Really great function if you don’t like sitting straight.

And then there are 90 degrees 4D adjustable armrests. Just as the name says there are many ways you can adjust them. You can lift them up or lower them, rotate them inwards or outwards, push them to the side or pull them back in and push them away from yourself or pull them towards you. They are just great and really add to the comfort because you can adjust them for when you are gaming, chilling or napping.

Not to forget this chair comes with neck/headrest and lumbar support cushions. I personally don’t use them often, but they are great addition if you want to take a nap.

I’m the type of person who really likes to rest his feet on the chair’s legs so I really miss little tiny footrest thingies some of the other DXRacers have.

Likely the very definition of comfortable. DXRacer plays it smart by making each of their series fit to a different height and weight ranges, thus, making all of their chairs fit you just perfectly.

This is how 4D armrests look like in action:

Healthiness

Healthy gaming is also one of DXRacer’s fortes. All of their gaming chairs are designed ergonomically so you can game longer without giving yourself a back, wrist or neck pains or even something more permanent.

Going into details, the uniquely shaped seat is where all the secrets to healthy gaming lie. It is shaped and measured so you remain comfortable and don’t get tired while sitting in correct posture. But that’s not all. High-back backrest isn’t just for style. It functions as a solution to neck/spine pain. In addition to that, there are adjustable armrests that prevent you from getting wrist/arm pain. As mentioned before this model also comes with adjustable lumbar support cushion you can use to increase the healthy factor.

Ease of Use and Assembly

Assembling this piece of art is a no-brainer and usually won’t take longer than 10 minutes. Once assembled it is also very simple to use and you get used to it in no time. The handles and buttons are well positioned so it using them is really comfortable. Also it’s very ease to clean because the cover is made from vinyl and PU.

Value for Price

For all the functions and quality you couldn’t ask for price much lower than it is now. Nonetheless I do think it could be lowered at least a couple tens.

All in All

Racing Series DOH/RV001/NB Newedge Edition is a luxury PC gaming chair setting the example of what it’s like to be a real gaming chair. It does what’s expected from a gaming chair and lots more. It’s super sturdy, high-quality, healthy, crazy comfortable and most excitingly you can adjust almost every moving part.

out of 5

JUST PERFECT
Many useful functions, comfortable and healthy for long gaming sessions, quality materials and parts, sturdy, well thought out design, crazy adjustable.
COULD USE SOME WORK
It’s my personal preference but I think it could have foot pegs to rest feet on, vinyl cover doesn’t sound too convincing, color layout could be a little more aggressive.
BOTTOM LINE
Definitely an awesome luxury gaming chair. I do find some minor faults in it but nonetheless it is one of my all time favorite gaming chairs. Would recommend it to literally anyone who fits the weight and height.
