Product Snapshot

Overview

Launched in 2021, the BestOffice Ergonomic High Back Office Chair comes in a single black color and measures 29.5 inches x 26.3 inches x 48.8 inches. Its maximum weight recommendation is 330 lbs, and like the best office chairs, it has a waterproof PU material covering over its reinforced steel frame.

Unfortunately, unlike the armrest, you can adjust the height and recline (90 to 120 degrees) to your liking. The padded armrests, gas lift, and seat cushion are BIFMA-certified. Similar to the best gaming chairs, it boasts a 360-degree swivel. For an extendable footrest, read our GTPlayer GT800A Footrest review.

Consensus

our Verdict

The BestOffice Ergonomic High Back Office Chair works well in gaming and office setups with its curved armrest, spring sponge seat cushion, and padded neck cushion. You can lean back 120 degrees, but the lack of lumbar support will be uncomfortable during extended gaming sessions. Its default minimum height doesn’t allow short individuals to touch their feet on the ground, and though the reinforced steel frame is sturdy, the chair seems lopsided when assembled.

Reaching different areas of a desk proves challenging since its wheels don’t easily roll on hardwood. Plus, the chair’s thin material means it could easily tear, and the stitching comes apart over time. While this is a good option for budget gamers and office-goers, its limited value lowers its appeal.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Average ergonomics and adjustability
    • The BestOffice Ergonomic High Back Office Chair is most suitable for home offices. While the chair doesn’t lie flat, its recline angle (90 to 120 degrees) lets you lean back comfortably during work breaks.

    • There’s no additional neck pillow, but the built-in padded neck cushion provides somewhat adequate support. For a gaming chair with a magnetic pillow, read our Secretlabs Titan Evo 2022 review.

  • Fairly strong construction
    • This chair is durable and will last long since it’s built with a reinforced steel frame structure and has a powder-coated finish.

Reason to Avoid

  • Inadequate lumbar support
    • There is no lumbar cushion to support the spine’s natural curve, which can lead to back pain when seated for long hours.

  • Limited height adjustment and asymmetrical
    • Short individuals may find it difficult to place their feet on the floor since the minimum height of the chair is too high, making it more suitable for six-foot-plus individuals. 

    • Also, the chair seems lopsided, with the left side tilted slightly backward than the right. You may have to sit at an angle for proper alignment.

  • Stiff wheels and thin material
    • The wheels do not roll on hardwood smoothly, so maneuvering the chair may become difficult while seated.

    • The thin material is prone to tearing with regular use, and the stitching on the seams easily unravels.
