We've been advising the NeueChair as the best office/task armchair for years, alike back afore I abutting as overlord of PC Gamer's accouterments coverage. As I'd not had the advantage of aggravating out the armchair for myself, however, I capital to accomplish abiding that it was a advocacy I could angle behind.
But I'm not activity to angle abaft it, I accept to sit on it because, damn, it abiding is a comfortable chair.
Coming from the aforementioned abiding as the best gaming chairs—the Secretlab Titan Evo—it's no abruptness that the NeueChair is an outstanding seat. But it is actual abundant a assignment chair, not a gaming chair.
By that I beggarly it's advised to be acclimated while alive at a desk, not to lounge in while blame aback with a ambassador in-hand. It's not that it's afflictive in its absolutely reclined state, but alike with the alternative beanbag it's not a position that you're activity to appetite to be sat in for a continued booty gaming session.
Chair type: Office / Assignment chair
Material (frame): ADC12 Aluminium
Material (fabric): 3-layer NeueMesh
Recline: 85 - 130°
Lumbar support: Built-in, adjustable
Warranty: 12-year (excl. abrasion and tear)
The alive position, however, is altogether admiring and I absolutely feel like my back is actuality looked afterwards by that cobweb abetment and adjustable lumbar support. The advanced bench feels good, admitting is absolutely not as giving as some squishier gaming chairs I've anchored my after in.
I apperceive it's attractive afterwards my anatomy because I can't absolutely get one leg beneath me to sit in my usually preferred—though posturally abysmal—relaxed alive position. I'm affected to sit in the actual manner, and I do absolutely feel bigger for it while I'm sat at my board during the alive day.
Though there is still a allotment of me that wants to lounge about of an evening, and the NeueChair isn't advised for that. That's bright in the added bound recline than you can 'achieve' with a added gaming-focused chair, such as that Titan Evo. The NeueChair will alone go aback to 130°, while the Secretlab will amplitude all the way to 165°. Y'know, for sleep.
I mean, it is an appointment chair, afterwards all, and one of the complete best, too. But there are few offices that absolutely appetite to animate that akin of banal alleviation area you're about accumbent at your desk.
✅ You appetite a affection armchair that will accumulate you engaged: The cocked accession of the NeueChair is actual abundant advised with the appointment in mind, accumulate you adequate while in an alive position at your desk.
✅ You charge rock-solid body quality: The 12-year assurance is attestation to the constancy of this actively athletic chair.
❌ You adulation to lounge: You're not activity to be as laid aback in the NeueChair as with added gaming-focused designs, and it's not as adequate to do so, either.
❌ You're on a bound budget: As with all good, committed appointment chairs, the NeueChair is expensive. And doesn't alike appear with a beanbag as standard. It's not Herman Miller expensive, but it's not far off bifold a Secretlab gaming chair.
That's accent by the acute Controlshift controls amid below anniversary armrest. The two levers acquiesce you lock or alleviate the recline, anywhere amid its 85 - 130° accessible angle, and to accession and lower the chair. The armrests themselves are a bit of a disappointment, however, accustomed that you can alone accession them on a ratchet apparatus and they don't absolutely go aerial abundant for my desk. They additionally don't move in or out to abutment your elbows.
You additionally don't get that beanbag as standard, which adds a not-inconsiderable bulk to the amount of the armchair if you do appetite it. Because I anticipate it's added ill-fitted to the alive position than reclining, I don't absolutely anticipate it's a big absence not accepting the headrest.
The NeueChair is absolutely congenital to last, with a aflame abundant automated architecture that won't attending out of abode in the funkiest of offices. Home or otherwise. That's backed up by a ample 12-year warranty, which goes some way to offsetting some of our apropos over it's contrarily aerial price.
But it is the best adequate appointment armchair I've anytime sat in, and if you're activity to be at your board best of the day working, as able-bodied as into the night gaming, again it's aces advance to accumulate your back healthy. Though, remember, it's account accepting up and walking about every now and then.
