Snakebyte Gaming:Seat – Hardware Review
Snakbyte Gaming:Seat Review
I have been looking for a gaming chair for a while now but have never known which one to buy. When I heard there was a chance to review the Snakebyte Gaming:Seat I jumped at the opportunity. The question now is, how did I find it?
Before I even got started with the chair itself I had to make it through the box. The box itself is pretty big and not something you can throw over your shoulder. When I got it home and opened it up I was delighted to see the amount of protective packaging was in there. The box was full between parts of the chair and the the packaging that there was very little chance of anything getting damaged on its way to me. Not only was there packaging from keeping the different parts from touching each other (or even the box) but each individual part was wrapped up too for extra protection. In the box was also a set of instructions explaining clearly how to assemble.
Stereotypically we don’t use instructions and we just wing it but I thought it might be n idea to use them this time. They were so simple to understand even if you have no DIY skills you could still put this chair together. I started off with the wheels. Realistically this was the easiest part as you just have to push them into the bottom. This is also the part that I struggled on the most. Thinking it can’t be that easy I was twisting and turning them and getting no where. It really was just that simple. After the wheels were on I moved on to the assembly of the arms and seat part. All parts are included for assembly which made it super easy to put together. Next up was the leg rest, we will ignore the fact that I originally put this on upside down but if anything it just how easy it was to disable and re enable the correct way. After the leg rest was on it was as simple as sliding the back rest onto the chair, literally takes 2 seconds. Finally putting the head and back rest on would finish the assembly, it was so simple and they just click in around the back. The Snakebyte Gaming:Seat is so easy to assemble that I am actually surprised. Quick and simple, just the way you want it to be.
I honestly love this chair and everything about it. The colour is a nice green although it is available in other colours. Almost everything can be adjusted to suit you. From the arm rests that can go up, down, left, right and even turned on an angle. To the angle of the back even to the length of the leg rest. One of my favourite things though is just a small feature but I think makes it, that is the Snakeskin pattern that is on the outside of the chair. It looks and feels so realistic but not only that, it looks like it could get caught on the smallest of things that touches it. However it has been made that perfectly that it doesn’t, this is only a small feature but I love it.
I mentioned earlier about the adjustments that can be made but I’m going to go into a little bit more detail. The chair itself can go anywhere from 90 degrees to 180 degrees. So you can go from playing sitting straight up, to lying all the way back like a bed. As well as this the footrest also expands out about a foot and is also able to be angled. This is a great feature because it means you can pull it our and rest your feet on it then when you’re done just fold it back up and push it under the chair. Another great thing is that you can take up as much or as little room as you want. As mentioned you can slide it back 180 degrees and lie on it and extend the footrest but you can also do the opposite. Tuck the footrest in, bring it back up to 90 degrees, put the arm rests low and it just slides under your desk taking up hardly any space at all! I also mentioned earlier about the headrest and backrest and how they are adjustable too. Obviously all people are different sizes and this chair suits all. You can put the back rest wherever suits you and the headrest can go as high or as low as you like. You can still use the chair without them but I personally prefer them on as I find it more comfortable. The logo is also visible on the headrest so if you are recording a video or streaming a game, your views know what sort of chair you use and where to get it. This is definitely a good thing as a lot of people go to Youtubers and streamers to ask for advice on such things.
As far as price goes. I personally think that £230 is a lot of money for any sort of Chair. However comparing the price and the quality to other gaming chairs I would definitely say it’s worth it. You get what you pay for and with this chair you get a lot. The adjustments you can make are not limited at all meaning you can tailor it to your needs. The assembly is super easy and doesn’t take a rocket scientist. Most of all, the quality is amazing!
