For some time, I’ve been looking for the perfect gaming chair to not only compliment my time in front of the PC monitor or television, but also keep me comfortable through my long days at my desk, pumping out articles just like this one.

So, when AndaSeat got in touch and said that their T-Pro 2 Series Gaming Chair was available for review, I jumped at the opportunity. 

Seeing the delivery driver pull up and put the chair on a trolley, leaving it at the door and backing off due to coronavirus restrictions was something I just had to laugh at. Surely, it couldn’t be that heavy…

Spoiler alert: It was. Still, I managed to haul it through the hallway with a bit of grunting (lockdown comfort eating has taken a real effect), but I would suggest that anybody who orders one in future ask for a hand in bringing the product indoors.

Anyway, enough about my extremely fragile biceps. Onto the actual unboxing and construction!

A glossy instruction manual is included alongside all of the parts you would expect to find in the box. They were separated by your usual polystyrene boards and kept in plastic bags, easily distinguishable and separated.

The instructions themselves were easy enough to follow, even if they did need a bit of sub-editing. Screws were called ‘crews’ throughout, for example, which did cause me a bit of confusion. Still, not enough that I didn’t manage to get through the build in under an hour.

Full disclosure, I was a little worried coming in that it may be a bit of a struggle to fit everything together, but I didn’t face near as many problems as I had predicted. The screws all seemed to fit into place with little to no effort and, when there was an issue, all it took was an issue and light bit of brainwork to line everything up.

Once complete, the AndaSeat T-Pro 2 Series Gaming Chair is a thing of beauty. The stunning blue and black colours on the model I was sent aren’t garish like many chairs in the industry can be; instead, they’re muted and refined; elegant, almost. Exactly what I needed for a chair I’d be using for both gaming and work.

The armrests are your standard plastic additions, and can be rotated as well as lifted up or pushed down dependant on how you’ll be sitting. They could have done with a fabric overlay to keep with the quality of the rest of the chair, but it’s a minor detail and one that isn’t essential for this to be a necessary purchase.

Of course, arguably the most important aspect is the chair’s comfort and mobility. Marketed at the taller, larger person, this isn’t a chair for those who are five foot nothing. When it comes to weight, the recommendation is 150kg and under, with a maximum suggestion of 200kg. As for height, AndaSeat recommend those between 180cm to 210cm at a maximum pick this chair up. That’s 5 feet nine inches at a minimum, and six foot five at a max.

Standing at six feet and not quite reaching 200kg over the past 12 months of pandemic craziness, I looked to be the perfect candidate.

Note to new users: Make sure the rocking and recline motion is turned off before jumping on, or it may take you by surprise! Once I’d gotten used to feeling like I was being prepped for one of the rides at Alton Towers however, it proved to be one of the comfiest gaming chairs I’ve ever had the pleasure of sitting on.

With a full recline of 160 degrees and the ability to rock back and forth with ease, I could quite happily take a midday snooze in the AndaSeat, which frankly the majority of us could use after a hard morning’s gaming.

To say I’m impressed would be an understatement. This is without a doubt the single best gaming chair I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. The £399.99 RRP may be a bit too steep for some people but, if you like me will use the chair for work as well as play, then it may be a worthwhile investment.
