Cooler Master Caliber X1 Gaming Chair Review

Conclusion and Verdict

Let me start by saying this chair is very stylish and is firm but comfortable. I like the carbon fiber accents around the chair. The stitching is very noticeable and I was unable to find any imperfections. This is really important when you have such a striking feature. The PU leather is very close to real thing and it might be difficult to tell the difference between PU leather and genuine leather. PU leather is an artificial leather material made with split leather (that’s the fibrous part of the hide left over from making genuine leather) which has been coated with polyurethane (hence the name “PU”), and then applied to the surface of the furniture. This chair is a winner in my books.

The PU leather design is also easy to maintain, and looks awesome. Even the neck and back cushions use high quality PU leather.

At the time of this review the chair can be purchased for 479 dollars. Now the big question. Would I spend this much on a computer chair? Absolutely! I found out just how much pain and suffering I have been putting myself through by not having one of these. Not only is this chair a stylish statement, the thing is super comfortable. I reclined the chair back and kicked my feet up on the desk and found it to be awesome.

After you exhausted yourself from all that gaming, just lean your seat back and recline, which is perfect after a heavy gaming session. Me personally, I found that i liked the chair with the lumbar pillow removed. This is just personal comfort but I do like it with out the pillow there. So whats my verdict? 100% approve. I like everything about this chair. Although my comparisons aren’t considered to be in the same class as this chair that just proves that this chair is of a much higher caliber and quality of what I am used to. If price is holding you back, like it always did me, then I can help out and say you wont regret spending your hard earned money on this chair!
