Pros

  • Easy assembly
  • Affordable
  • Adjustable height
  • 1-Year Warranty
  • Comes with a massage pillow

Cons

  • Subpar material
  • Low weight limit for steel legs
  • Fixed armrest
  • Wired massage pillow

The Panther Nightfall Series sets the standard of affordable gaming chairs in the market. Although inferior in some aspects, we recommend this for anyone looking for their first gaming chair experience. 

For starters, its assembly takes less time compared to other gaming chairs. We were impressed with how they kept the assembly simple, making it a pleasing experience for new gaming chair owners.

We think anyone can assemble this gaming chair because it provides all of the materials and manuals you will need. With only an allen wrench (included in the package), you will be able to assemble the gaming chair without any trouble. 

Once assembled, we suggest you try out its excellent adjustment features. We love how you can adjust the seat’s height and recline without tweaking too much during assembly. 

It can be very comfortable to stay in for hours because of its lumbar support massage pillow (massage pillow for lower back). 

Since the massage pillow is powered by USB, we do not expect it to bring high levels of stimulation to relax you. We don’t think you’ll use this too much, but it can provide you slight lower back relief after sitting for hours.

We noticed the low weight limit for the steel base chairs. We also noticed the foam of the seat to be thin. 

Having thin foam on your seat may cause you discomfort after long periods of time. We feel it is the consequence of having less quality material and easy assembly. 

We recommend that you stay in cool rooms with air conditioning to avoid feeling sweaty when sitting with this gaming chair. This is the problem with thin foams because it absorbs less heat and sweat. 

2. Cougar Ranger Gaming Sofa

Cougar Ranger Gaming Sofa

Price: Php 10,899.00

Material: Premium Leather

Weight Limit: 160 kg

Maximum Recline: 160 degrees

Available Colors: Sky Blue, Orange, Green, Royal Gold, Pink

Pros

  • High weight limit
  • Easy assembly
  • Perfect for both mobile and console gamers
  • Premium materials
  • Vast color selection
  • Footrest adjusts with the recline

Cons

  • Lacking color customization
  • Lack of adjustment features
  • May not match your table’s height

Among this list, the Cougar Ranger Gaming Sofa provides the easiest assembly. We were pleased with how you can assemble the pieces together by fitting them together, rather than screwing. 

We loved how the Cougar Ranger Gaming Sofa provides comfort from your head to toes. This makes the gaming experience for console and mobile gamers perfect. 

The major black design with colored accents can help enhance your gaming experience. If black is your element, we recommend you buy this as it would surely fit your aesthetic.

For those who prefer to veer away from black, we suggest you consider other gaming chairs or sofas. The Cougar Ranger Gaming Sofa only comes in a black design and cannot be ordered in bright colors. 

When it comes to the ergonomic design, the gaming sofa offers you a unique experience. We were blown away by its recline and footrest mechanism. 

When you choose to recline, the footrest simultaneously raises to keep you comfortable at any position. You can do this until you reach 160 degrees, which is already close to a lying position.

We hesitate to recommend this for personal computer (PC) gamers, who may best appreciate having individual adjustment features for the recline and footrest. 

We think you should consider buying a wireless mouse and keyboard when using this sofa. We feel that you can only use your PC from a distance when you sit on this. 

Also, taller people (more than 5 foot 6 inches) would be pleased more with the backrest as it perfectly sizes up on their back. We think of this as a deal breaker for many who may not find their bodies perfectly fitting the gaming sofa. 

We highly recommend this product for shoppers who can do a test sit, to know how it fits their whole body. The premium comfort it aims for may not match your preference as many of its parts are fixed.

3. MUSSO Navigator Series Model 2

MUSSO Navigator Series Model 2

Pros

  • 1-Year warranty
  • Vast color selections
  • Breathable material
  • Affordable
  • High weight limit 

Cons

  • Difficult assembly
  • Lacks foot rest or massage pillow
  • Minimalist/Off colors

MUSSO Navigator Series Model 2 provides you with better materials compared to its gaming chair counterparts. 

When we think of breathable material, mesh office chairs usually set the standard. 

However, we were impressed with this model because of its material’s breathability. We recommend this for people who tend to stay in front of their screen for hours without standing up.

We also admire its simple recline mechanism. By triggering the function on your armrest, you will be able to recline your seat to almost 160 degrees. 

The MUSSO Navigator Series Model 2 focuses on practicality, which we feel is a different take on gaming chairs. 

If you are a streamer, we think you are better off trying other gaming chairs. The color variations for this model are minimalist and tend to blend more on the background. 

We also felt the difference between the assembly of this product compared to other gaming chair models. 

We think of this as a result of having more materials to safeguard the product and increase its durability. We suggest you assemble the product when you have a chunk of free time. 

Lastly, for this price range, we’re disappointed that a footrest and massage pillows aren’t alreaady included.

If you prefer to have those accessories or features with your gaming chair, we suggest you shop around for other models. There are cheaper gaming chairs which already include those on purchase.

4. LikeRegal Gaming Chair

LikeRegal Gaming Chair

Pros

  • Adjustable armrest (horizontal)
  • Affordable
  • Easy assemble
  • Contains footrest and back massager
  • Vast color selection
  • LED option for a higher price
  • Perfect for gamers, streamers, and gaming chair enthusiasts

Cons

  • Cheaper alternatives with similar build exist
  • Fixed footrest
  • 2-month warranty only

Another affordable gaming chair option you can consider is the LikeRegal Gaming Chair. We recommend this for those who want an upgrade on their previous gaming chairs.

The LikeRegal Gaming Chair sets itself apart from its competitors in the same price range. It is an upgrade in the same price range because it offers a footrest and adjustable armrest. 

While the adjustable armrest is not an entire game-changing experience, we appreciate this adjustable feature. 

We think of this as a useful adjustment because you can relax your elbows to your armrest when you recline. 

The LikeRegal Gaming Chair comes with more than 10 different variations. You can choose whether you’d want a different color or you’d want to have ones with LED lights for them.

We recommend this for gamers, streamers, and gaming chair enthusiasts. 

The gaming chair with surrounding LED lights costs around Php 7,000, so we recommend this more for enthusiasts or streamers. You will impress your viewers with more than just your gaming expertise. 

Its lumbar support contains soft leather. We noticed how the lumbar support for this product contains more cushion inside than its gaming chair counterparts. 

The footrest of the gaming chair is fixed and can only keep your legs horizontally straight. 

We feel this might be more of a con because of how it only keeps your legs in one position. You might seldomly use it if you do not rest on your LikeRegal Gaming Chair. 

We also feel that there are cheaper gaming chair alternatives in the market. We suggest you look for other models because this product largely resembles other more affordable gaming chairs.

5. IKER Gaming Chair

IKER Gaming Chair

Price: Php 1,790 – Php 1,990

Material: Soft Sponge, Steel frame, Nylon base

Pros

  • High weight limit 
  • Very cheap
  • Available in pure colors
  • With footrest

Cons

  • Inferior material
  • 2-month warranty only
  • Low recline
  • Low end gaming chair 
  • Difficult assembly

If you are looking for a solid but cheap gaming chair, the IKER Gaming Chair might be for you. 

When we think of the classic gaming chair look, IKER Gaming Chair perfectly fits the bill. It follows basic ergonomic design and fixed chair structures. 

We recommend this for people who may want to order gaming chairs with other solid colors. Most gaming chairs come in dark colors with shades of light color touches, but the IKER Home provides you with pink, white, blue and other solid hues.

The assembly of the IKER Gaming Chair felt tedious for us. We suggest working on the assembly in a wider space, as it is easy to miss their small screws. 

Although very cheap, the high weight limit impresses us. A lower price range would usually entail lower weight limits due to compromised materials. 

That said, we feel that the material of the leather may not last long. Most gaming chairs use PVC leather (stronger, multi-layered leather), while the IKER Gaming chair relies on PU leather (weaker type of leather).

Because of this, you might feel that you have to stand up from time to time. It lacks the breathability other gaming chairs provide. 

We recommend you look for other gaming chairs if you are not staying in a cool room for extended periods of time when using this chair.

The recline of the seat may also feel limited. If you plan to rest in your gaming chair, we recommend you look for models with higher recline degrees, as this may feel uncomfortable for resting.
