Consensus

our Verdict

Big and tall gamers will be thrilled with the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition. In terms of ergonomics, it has a highly adjustable build, with 4D armrests, adjustable lumbar support, and a 160-degree recline. On top of this, it features a high-quality memory foam headrest and has an adequate seat height hydraulic adjustment range of 2.5 inches.

The chair itself is built with larger users in mind, as it fits heights from 5’9” to 6’8” and can hold 440 lbs. Another draw is that the build is durable, all made with a high-quality steel frame and alumin base, meaning it won’t wear out quickly. However, one drawback is that the PVC leather isn’t breathable and can cause overheating.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good Adjustability and Ergonomics
    • The AndaSeat Fnatic Edition allows gamers a recline range of 90-160 degrees. Plus, a moveable headrest to support various heights and 4D armrests that move up, down, forward, backward, and laterally.

    • The chair also has fair seat height adjustment, which comes in at 2.5 inches, and features a rocking mode and a high-quality velvet headrest pillow for enhanced comfort.

  • Great Lumbar Support
    • The lumbar support is designed specifically with taller users in mind. The lumbar pillow is wide and made of high-quality material to maximize comfort.

  • High-Quality Build
    • All the levers, buttons, and materials themselves are well-designed and quality, meaning there’s hardly any wobbling, jiggling, or shakiness.

  • Large Size
    • The chair is geared for users with larger frames and builds, as it supports a height of up to 6’8” and has a maximum load weight of 440 pounds.

Reason to Avoid

  • Not Ideal for Shorter Users
    • The manufacturer says that the seat is designed for those 5’9” and above, meaning it could be uncomfortable for users below this height.

  • Material Could Cause Overheating
    • The material is PVC leather and memory foam cushion, which is high quality but not the most breathable, meaning gamers could experience overheating after long gaming sessions.

Compared to the DXRacer Formula Series gaming chairs, the DX Racer Air Series caters to larger people. The seat width of the Formula Series is only 15×18 inches, while the Air Series reaches 19×20. Additionally, the Air series provides an additional 50 pounds of weight capacity, holding 250 lbs, compared to the Formula Series’ 200. However, the Formula series has superior seat height adjustability, offering 4 inches of adjustment, and the Air series only gives 2 inches.

Compared to the DXRacer Air Series, the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition clearly wins in terms of handling larger users. The AndaSeat holds 400 pounds, whereas the DXRacer only holds 250 pounds and seats users up to 6’6”. Additionally, the AndaSeathas is a cushioned, higher-quality lumber supper, while the DXRacer only has an adjustable plastic brace. Lastly, the AndaSeat is more ergonomic, boasting 160 recline angle and 2.5-inch height adjustment. On the other hand, the DXRacer has a 135 recline and 2-inch height adjustment. Read our Razer Iskur Gaming Chair review for a chair that caters to smaller users.

The AndaSeat Fnatic Edition is slightly edged out by the AndaSeat Kaiser 3 in terms of ergonomics, as the Kaiser 3 has a 165-degree recline while the Fnatic has a 160-degree angle. However, the Fnatic holds more weight, as it’s designed to hold 440 lbs, whereas the Kaiser only holds 395 lbs. The Kaiser 3 also has a higher quality lumbar support, sporting a cooling gel feature to prevent overheating, and the Fnatic Edition only has a typical foam lumbar pillow that’s subject to getting warm during long use. We also have a separate Herman Miller X Logitech Embody Gaming Chair review for those looking to explore other high-quality options.

While both cater to larger users, the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition performs better, given it holds up to 440 pounds, whereas the EasyX Big and Tall only holds 300 pounds. Additionally, the AndaSeat Fnatic Edition has a much more impressive recline angle, stretching to 160 degrees compared to the EayMX’s 135-degree angle. However, the EasyMX has an adjustable footrest feature, which the AndaSeat lacks. And lastly, the EasyMX has a better mesh material for breathability, whereas the AndaSeat has PVC leather. For more insight, check out our EasysMX Big and Tall review.
