Product Snapshot

Overview

The GTPlayer eSports Gaming Chair GT002 is an entry-level pick first announced in mid-2023. The gaming chair has a bucket seat design, which is very similar to most racing chairs, making it significantly more comfortable than most top-rated office chairs.

The GT002 can recline up to 160° and has height-adjustable armrests for added comfort. Like most highly-rated gaming chairs, the GT002 can accommodate individuals weighing up to 300 pounds and is available in six colors. Its PU leather seat cover material is also pretty easy to clean, and overall, the chair is relatively easy to assemble.

Consensus

our Verdict

The GTPlayer eSports GT002 is a great gaming chair for users who would prefer a bucket seat design. The chair also has a high backrest, making it a good pick for tall individuals, and with a weight limit of up to 300 pounds, it works great for heavy-set individuals. In terms of adjustability, the chair allows for a 4” range of seat height adjustment, and its backrest can recline up to 160°. The armrests are also height-adjustable, but they don’t have any padding.

The GTPlayer eSports GT002 also boasts a 360-degree swivel base for easy mobility, and its nylon wheels make for quiet movement. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have adjustable lumbar support built into its backrest.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Good adjustability and ergonomics
    • The GT002 Gaming Chair is a good pick for gamers who are okay with a 4” range of adjustability for its seat height and a 160° recline. The armrests are also height adjustable, within a range of about 4”.

  • Good build quality
    • Designed on a sturdy metal frame, the GT002 can support users who weigh up to 300 pounds.

  • Tall backrest
    • The GT002 is a large chair, and it also features a high backrest. This is great for tall individuals.

Reason to Avoid

  • No adjustable lumbar support
    • The GT002 Gaming Chair has no adjustable lumbar support, making it unfit for users with lower back problems.

The GTPlayer eSports Gaming Chair GT002 can be reclined to 160°, which is much deeper than the Noblechairs Hero TX, which can recline to 125°. The GT002 also ships with a PU leather cover, making it different from the Hero TX, which has a fabric cover. Finally, the GT002 has two air vents in line with its racing car seat design, while the Hero TX has one single wide air vent on its backrest. Here’s our Noblechairs Hero Gaming Chair review for more info.

The GTPlayer eSports Gaming Chair GT002’s PU leather cover might not offer as much breathability as the mesh fabric on the Steelcase Think V2. Also, the GT002 does have an integrated headrest, while the Think V2 only offers a detachable headrest as an additional option.
