Classic DXRacer Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair
We would definitely recommend this DXRacer Classic 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
- Warranty included
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 DXRacer Classic 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 the 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 DXRacer Classic chair properly.
The backrest does feature breathable material to keep you cool during those marathon gaming sessions. Staying cool will keep you in the seat longer to be able to keep gaming as long as you want. Since not everybody has the same idea of what is comfortable or not, the backrest is adjustable to get you in your favorite position.

FAQ about Classic DXRacer Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair
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 DXRacer Classic 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 Classic computer chair.
Will this chair accommodate people over 6 feet tall?
Yes, the high back on DXRacer Classic chair makes it very good for taller individuals. The design of the backrest is such that it keeps your entire spine in alignment from your lower back all the way up to your neck, even if you are over 6 feet tall. With all the different ways to adjust this from the backrest to the armrest being 3D adjustable, whatever your height or body type, you can customize the chair for maximum comfort.
Does it have enough support for heavier gamers?
Absolutely! In fact, that’s one of the biggest advantages of this chair. Its sturdy construction will hold up to higher weights for a long time without wearing out or breaking. Not only that, but the wide seat gives you plenty of wiggle room to move around in if you have a wide girth. The wide feet aid with stability, so if you move around and your center of gravity shifts, you won't end up tipping over due to your weight.
Is the padding firm or soft?
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. Keep in mind that over time the cushion will break in and become softer, but it will never be soft enough where you feel like you are sinking into the cushion. The thickness gives you support and keeps your back in perfect alignment.
Some people may find the padding on the armrests lacking a bit. If you like a firm armrest, then this won't be an issue, but anybody who likes some padding for extended gaming sessions where they like to keep their arms on them may find them uncomfortable.
Does the chair provide good back support?
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. There is a removable lumbar pillow to take the pressure off of your lower back. The design of the backrest is not only great to keep your back aligned, but it will also reduce fatigue, keeping you alert. A perfectly aligned spine will improve your blood circulation and allow oxygen to flow throughout your body. This gives you the focus you need to stay productive at work or to keep on your toes while gaming.
Is this chair good for people who are not gamers?
We think this is a perfect chair for gaming in. But if you don’t the 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. You may like the unique design as a fashion statement at work, or you may just love how comfortable it is even when sitting in front of the computer screen all day. Even though it is a gaming chair, the aesthetics are mature and don't make it look like it was made for gaming teenagers. It is professional looking enough to work in any office environment.
How the Classic DXRacer Series DOH/CE120/N Big and Tall Chair compares to other big and tall chairs
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 DXRacer 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 DXRacer 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 Classic 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.
A 4 class gas lift system is strong and won't end up leaking which will cause your weight to slowly sink. When you adjust your height, the cylinder will keep you at that height. The chair can also tilt back with a lock to keep you in that position. Since the lock is very strong, even heavier gamers can recline worry free.
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 DXRacer Classic big and tall 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.
DXRacer Classic big and tall chair has a very good reputation among gamers who use gaming chairs. And for good reason. They have all the little details covered and make a great product. They can be a bit pricey, but when you consider that they are built to last, you end up spending less money in the long run.
We believe that when you spend a bit more on quality on a brand that is known for it, then you actually get a good value for the money spent.
This concludes our review. We also believe that you might interested in a computer desk since a great gaming chair requires a proper desk.
