nice to see some sort of gaming chair reviews.
To most it will be a waste* of money... but to certain small pool of ppl, it will be great information for their extra money well spend.

Regarding the sweat/heat buildup, I own the omega and its not that bad actually as long as you have a fan beside you. Not sure if it makes a difference though, but I have quite a small frame body. Maybe roy can test with different profile of people to try find out if it makes a difference?
Turn on the air con, i used to cover my myself with a thin blanket on top while watching TV on my Omega.

I'm also small frame and i can even sit cross legged.

Really love the chair and give a thumb up for secretlab.

best advice would be for anyone to go try out the chairs for yourself, everyone is built differently, and everyone has their own preference. some like soft and cushy, some like the headrest to be a certain angle, one man's meat is another man's poison. what I would say is undeniable is the build quality of Secretlab.

Choice of chairs are always personal preference. It is a large pool of different customers that has different needs. There is no way to satisfy everyone.

However, a bad chair out of the box can be a disaster. Not only if people whom do not know that those Qoo10 sellers are selling imitation chairs and thought that it will provide like what Secretlab or DXRacer has to offer. They are better buying an ikea office chair than the ones sold on Qoo10.

It took me by surprise as the imitation chairs does not even have safety features. Which is totally dangerous to sit on and it is not worth the price even it is at $99, $120 or more.
