There’s not a lot to be said about this chair upon initial first glance because it looks like a very simplistic design with a unique style. It almost combines the historical look of a movie theatre chair but also combines the functionality of a rocker and a leather chair all in one. It’s not something we’ve ever seen before and not something you typically see on this kind of market, so we just had to give it a shot and see if it was worth the purchase for others. Traditionally, not a lot of floor level low level seats like this have armrests but thankfully, they were adjustable.
With a cheap price tag that’s constantly going down, was there something wrong with the chair? Is there a defect with the chair or has it been replaced by X Rocker with a new and superior product? Not all cheap chairs are of cheap quality material so we wanted to get to the bottom of this and find out why this chair was so cheap in the first place. It has a lot of promising functionality and offers a lot of comfort for the pricing point, so what’s the big deal?
Design & Style
While this isn’t the most unique functionality chair out there today, it definitely has one of the most unique designs. From the leather exterior, to the plainly colored armrests and rocking base, this chair definitely stands out in any kind of room you can put it in.
Comes with foldable and grey armrests (which a lot of people prefer to fold up when in use)
The leather exterior was designed by choice so that people who are accident prone didn’t feel like a chair was ruined over a spill
The design also allows for easy storage because the entire unit will fold in half when you want to put it away or store it somewhere
Was designed with various materials on different parts such as wood, steel and vinyl
We’d like to say that all X Rocker chairs come with great durability but some of them are hit and miss. The X Rocker 5127301 Li Se Black however seems to be a hit. For the overall size of the chair and the dimensions (which measure at 22.5 x 29 x 37 inches), it seems to be a decent scope of people. The shipping weight of the chair is 52.8 pounds overall and while this seems heavy for the small size, we suspect it’s because of the materials used on the base of the chair. It’s highly durable and won’t break on you anytime soon.
An In-Depth Look at the Features
As many critiques as some customers have about X Rocker’s product line, whether it’s the price of the questionable quality of a couple of their products, no one can dispute that X Rocker goes all out when it comes to the functionality of the chair.
Wireless – One of the main complaints of other chairs like this is that wires are always required to do a lot of the things that come with the chair. This chair has wireless capability.
The Base Frame – Worried about a weak frame rocking back and forth on the floor? Don’t worry, this comes with a highly dependable solid wooden frame backed by steel that won’t leave any marks on your floor. You can rock back and forth with ease.
Console Connections – Want to connect a console or electronic to this chair? It’s easy. If you have an Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, iPod or any other type of smart connection device like a home theatre, you can easily plug it in and get it working with the sound system.
Fire Proof – One of the main features that parents love about this chair is that the foam used is fire retardant. Accidents happen and everyone knows that but you don’t have to worry about fires, or at least this chair being the root cause of one.
What We Liked & What We Didn’t Like
It goes without saying that we obviously liked the design first and foremost. This isn’t really a design that a lot of different companies come up with or use. It’s also rare for companies to use leather exterior on small gaming chairs like this as younger adults and teenagers seem to enjoy cloth material more for some reason.
What We Liked
- The chair was very spill resistant thanks to the exterior leather coating and was surprisingly comfortable as well which is pretty uncommon for thick leather gaming chairs
- The connection capability of the chairs is astounding as well, it’s great to be able to hook up multiple devices depending on a person’s interest in consoles
- Being fire proof was a nice big plus for us because all the wiring inside worries a lot of parents and having a nice fire retardant comfort foam inside the chair can put those worries at ease
- Cleanup was a breeze if there was ever any kind of dust and it was nice to carry the chair around like a piece of luggage if we wanted to move it somewhere as it was relatively light
What We Didn’t Like
We’re not particularly fans of the armrests as they weren’t the most comfortable we’ve ever laid our arms on but they’re easily folded up
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can the armrests be moved at all?
A: While the armrests can’t be moved to the side or completely removed, you can easily move the armrests up and down if they’re not in use or if you’d prefer to use them.
Q: What kind of electronic devices does this work with?
A: Almost any kind of modern day console including the Wii U will be compatible with this chair.
Q: How high does this chair sit off the ground?
A: It’s not very much at all, probably not even 1 foot off of the ground. It’s meant for a ground level chair with a nice forefront view of the television or monitor that you’re using.
Q: Is this a good computer gaming chair?
A: Low sitting chairs if you setup your desk and move things around can be used for computer games that use a controller but you might have a little bit of a struggle if you want to use this on something that requires use of the keyboard. It’s meant primarily for relaxation, movies, home theatres and console gaming.
This is a relatively cheap chair and is a great solution for a young adult or child that wants something for their TV. It’s not great for computers and we wouldn’t recommend it for that but there’s plenty of other great products out there by X Rocker that might accommodate your needs. Is it worth the price? We’d say absolutely and the company is very great with customer support and processing refunds.
You won’t have to wait weeks or months to get a hold of technical support for any issues what so ever. It’s a straight to the point kind of chair and while we can’t recommend the armrests that come with the chair, that’s the only major complaint we had for this chair. We’d highly recommend this chair.
