Vertagear SL5000 Gaming Chair Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
There are a lot of gaming chairs on the market, and in all fairness, that’s a bit of an understatement. It seems every company has found a factory that will stamp their name on one, for better or for worse. However, there are a few big names that have been on the market longer and doing it better. Vertagear is certainly one of those brands and has long been established as a premium gaming chair company.
Their SL5000 line is proving pretty popular, and with that in mind, we wanted to see what all the fuss was about. With their latest black and red edition SL5000 in the eTeknix office today, I’m going to take a closer look at the build quality and features you get for your almost £300 investment.
What Vertagear Had to Say
“A gamer’s delight, the SL5000 will hit the sweet spot for extreme gamers. The racing-style gaming chair empowers your everyday gaming with the right features. Designed to give a wide range of adjustability that provides gamers with the best comfort and ergonomic support in every position for extended periods of time. The high backrest is designed to provide greater neck, shoulder, and lumbar support.” – Vertagear
Gaming chairs aren’t particularly compact, so be sure to measure up your desk and surrounding space to ensure you can accommodate it. Also, keep in mind that it is a high backed chair, and the width of the seat before the side rests, as they can be restrictive to some users.
