We get a lot of questions about game chairs for people who don’t fit comfortably in some of the standard sized chairs. Whether you need a wider backrest or a taller chair, the review on this DXRacer Classic Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair will give you an idea of what to look for in chairs made to support greater heights and weights.
As always, DXRacer hits the mark with high quality materials made to support gamers of all sizes. And the classic design of this particular chair makes it perfect for game rooms, home offices, or work spaces. The DXRacer Classic Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair has all the features you’d expect from this line of game chairs. And with this model, you also get the added features needed to prevent your chair from wearing out too soon, digging into your hips or back, or leaving you tall gamers slouching to support your neck and head.
Of course, this isn’t the only Big and Tall chair on the market, so let’s dive into the features and see where this one stands.
You’re going to pay a bit more for a DXRacer, so you want to make sure the one you get has all the right features. Here are the features included for this racing style office chair.
Ergonomic design with included lumbar support pillow for added comfort
Vinyl leather material covering the seat and backrest

Now here’s the great part--the dimensions. The seat on the DXRacer Classic Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair is 21 inches wide by 19 inches deep, providing a much roomier place to sit than standard sized office chairs. The backrest is 23 inches wide by 33 inches tall. The total weight is 66 pounds, making it one of the heavier chairs we’ve reviewed. That weight is a testament to the sturdy nature of this chair.
DXRacer stands behind the quality of their chairs. And we agree that this chair provides the support and durability needed for heavier gamers.
We would definitely recommend this chair for improving gaming experience if you’re used to chairs that creak and bend under your weight. It has a lot of the wonderful advantages that we expect from a racing style chair. Here’s what we found.
Extremely durable construction that’s made to last
Nice armrest construction that intersects at sturdiness and comfort, not too hard, not so soft that they’ll wear out quickly
Speaking of the armrests, we really like the multi-directional adjustment capabilities
Caster wheels are high quality
Great for people with bigger builds, roomy
Firm seat construction helps prevent back strain
The seat may take a little while to break in, so don’t be discouraged if it feels almost too firm at first. All seats break in after use, so you don’t want a chair that starts too soft and ends up wearing through so that you feel the frame beneath you, especially a concern for heavier gamers. That definitely won’t happen with this chair.
Every chair is different, so there are bound to be a few things one person or another doesn’t like about a particular model. Here are the downsides to the DXRacer Classic Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair.
Skin can stick to the vinyl leather if it’s warm in the room
Headrest cushion is not adjustable
Armrests didn’t come up high enough for some testers
Sticky leather is an issue with any leather chair, so it’s really a matter of whether you prefer leather or alternatives such as mesh. As for the headrest and armrests, we suggest that you simply pay attention to the suggested height and weight for this chair. They shouldn’t be an issue if you fit the chair properly.
So let’s take a closer look at exactly what these features and their advantages mean for you if you’re considering purchasing this game chair. Specs on the features and dimensions don’t necessarily answer your practical questions about how the chair functions when it’s actually being used for a gaming or work session. These are the questions we were most curious about with this DXRacer computer chair.
Yes, the high back on this chair makes it very good for taller individuals.
Absolutely! In fact, that’s one of the biggest advantages of this chair. It’s sturdy construction will hold up to higher weights for a long time without wearing out or breaking.
The padding on this chair is pretty firm, which is a plus as far as we’re concerned. It means the seat cushion won’t wear down so that the chair frame can felt. That’s definitely not comfortable. But if you prefer a softer seat, we suggest sticking with a firm design like this and adding a cushion on top. That way you get durability and extra comfort.
Yes, this chair has an excellent ergonomic design. It’s made to support your weight and promote good posture for hours spent at your computer.
We think this is a perfect chair for gaming in. But if you don’t game, you can also get plenty of benefits from the sturdy construction and back support. We would suggest this chair if you spend lots of hours in front of a computer for any reason.
DXRacer actually has a few different lines of chairs for big and tall gamers. That’s right, not only do they give you a chair made for your size, they actually provide you with multiple options. So how do some of their other chairs for larger gamers measure up against the DXRacer Classic Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair? Let’s take a look at two other big and tall office chair options.
DXRacer King Series Big and Tall Chair DOH/KS11/N Office Chair is, as the name states, from the King Series. The King Series is a bit pricier than the Classic Series chairs, and many of the features are identical. But here’s what we noticed as different. The Classic chair actually has a wider seat than the King, but the King chair is taller overall. And the King also has armrests that are padded and a bit more comfortable.
So what you should look at is your particular body type. If you need a big chair because you are heavier or wider, we suggest the Classic. Now what about that height difference? Both chairs have similar backrest dimensions. But the King chair is still taller. So we think it would be perfect for gamers with especially long legs.
The DXRacer King Series DOH/KS06/N Big and Tall Chair Racing Bucket Seat is another option for a King Series chair. The big difference between this and the DXRacer King Series Big and Tall Chair DOH/KS11/N Office Chair is that this game chair comes in 5 different color options, more than either of the other two chairs. Frankly, we think it has the coolest look of the 3 chairs reviewed here.
You should absolutely go with a chair that fits your build when you’re looking at DXRacers. After all, you’re spending a good amount of money on a chair that you should enjoy for a long time. You get sturdy construction and a great warranty with any of the big and tall chairs discussed here.
The Classic chair is your best price between the 3, and heavier gamers are going to be quite satisfied with the fit and comfort. If you need lots of leg height, you might want to consider one of the King series chairs. And if aesthetics are a primary concern, the DXRacer King Series Big and Tall Chair DOH/KS11/N Office Chair can be color coordinated with many different rooms and tastes.
