Here at gaming chair gods I do a lot of gaming chair reviews. I do my reviews of chairs from different gaming chair companies’. So, today I’m going to change it up and make a post about a gaming chair company. So the first gaming chair company I will review is DxRacer. This is Dxracer Review isn’t going to be about a particular chair. In this DxRacer review I will be breaking down the good and bad things about Dxracer.
I am going to speak about the companies’ evolution over time and their presence in competitive gaming. I will also review how Dxracer treats their customers and employees.
One thing about dxracer I have always noticed is they are heavily involved in the professional gaming scene. DxRacer came onto the gaming scene in 2006. For as long as I have been watching Esports one thing has always been consistent and that’s the chairs.
The first competitive game I played was Counter Strike: Source. I was a little kid when I started playing counter strike and watching E- Sports broadcast. The suped up chairs the pros used always got my attention and they’ve always said DxRacer. DxRacer’s presence on the pro gaming scene has always been strong and even now is no different.
DxRacer has been killing it on the pro gaming scene in 2019 even with the extra competition that has arisen. The gaming chair company partnered with the Evolution championship Series this August. DxRacer might be the Nike of E sports. In the Evo championship series they provided chairs for gamers playing Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Mortal Kombat 11, Soul Calibur VI, Under Night In-Birth, DRAGON BALL FighterZ, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, and Samurai Shodown. So yeah they working
A month before the Evolution championship series they were THE official gaming chair for the ESPN EXP Invitational. DxRacer provide chairs for 15 teams playing Apex Legends. They provide chairs for some of the top teams in the world, groups like Alliance, Counter Logic Gaming, Cloud9 Brazil, Luminosity Gaming, Complexity Gaming, Misfits, NRG Esports, T1, Team Liquid, our partner Tempo Storm, and many more.
Like in so many other fields in this world, women aren’t represented like they should be. It may come as a surprise to some people but girls like video games just as much as boys and are good. DxRacer recognizes this and openly acknowledges this by Partnering with Super Girl Gamer Pro.
If you aren’t familiar with Super girl Gamer Pro has provided opportunities for women in traditionally male-dominated industries for the past 12 years. They created the Super Girl Gamer Pro to develop a platform for female gamers and to help inspire women to take a larger role within esports. The mission is to encourage the empowerment and participation of more women in competitive gaming and to help facilitate a future where women and men have equal opportunities within the esports and gaming industries.
This is an Excellent move for Dxracer.
I’m just going to get right to it and say Dxracer actually cares about their customers. Dxracer offers a 2-year warranty on parts that may be defective and they offer a lifetime warranty on their steel frames. Offering a lifetime warranty on their frames is really sweet deal. You could own a chair for 30 years and as long as Dxracer is alive and kicking you will get your frame repaired no charge.
DxRacer also has a good refund policy. It’s not anything super special but allowing you to assemble the chair and use it for 30 days but then if you don’t like it you can send it back.
Another good thing about DxRacer is Free shipping. This is the best thing in my opinion because some gaming chairs can get pretty heavy and I would not like to what that shipping cost would look like.
Now while Dxracer runs a good marketing campaign and makes some good partnerships that are both lucrative and good socially there is some bad. Many of the Dxracer employees are unhappy with how the company is ran.
An employee of DxRacer stated in Jan 26, 2019 that DxRacer is “An Extremely difficult place to work. I would highly recommend that you do not work here. The company is run entirely in China and US staff has no power, that includes US management. US staff is left in the dark about ongoing projects and you will rarely get direct answers, or global cooperation from other branches of the company.”
Hearing that Dxracer is not ran from The United States like they claim on their website is disheartening especially in a time when so many gaming companies’ outsource to save money
I like the moves Dxracer makes for the culture of gaming. The company is actively partnering with events and gaming teams to push the culture forward. I also think Dxracer has Excellent customer service and it’s wise to buy from their site or amazon. However, I do trust the words of their employees and I think their company would have more respect being based fully in the united states but hey it’s a business. Although if you’re looking for the Nike of gaming chairs DxRacer has your back and I recommend them to any buyer. I give DxRacer A review Score of 8.5/10.
