11 Best Gaming Chairs Under $300 – Reviews And Buying Guides

Are you looking for the best cheap gaming chair under $300? In this article, we will breakdown the top 11 best gaming chairs under $300.

1. GTracing eSports Gaming Chair

Starting off at number 1 we have the GTracing eSports Gaming Chair. One of the most popular choices in the sub-$300 category is the GTracing eSports Gaming Chair.

This is a solid, well-built gaming chair that will look good in both gaming and office environments (although admittedly the all-black versions would work better in the office).

The armrests may not be padded but it can be adjusted up and down as well as left to right. That aside, this has industrial-grade wheels or casters.

The easy-to-clean PU leather combined lumbar support and neck headrest, made this gaming chair both functional and comfortable. This chair cna even recline up to 170 degrees for those post-win naps. Other people do that, right?

2. Lorell Executive High-Back Chair

At number 2 we have the Lorell Executive High-Back Chair. It’s likely that the first thing you’ll notice about this chair is its large mesh back.

This may be a low density mesh– meaning the individual strands that make up the mesh are spaced further apart– but the high-quality nylon helps make up for it.

Since there’s a reasonable amount of nylon used in this chair, it’s safe to say you can rely on the product’s durability. But keep in mind that the very low-density nylon mesh still hurts this chair in that department.

This chair offers stellar comfort for the price. In fact, the back is easily one of the most comfortable chair backs in this range. If we were to compare the chair’s firmness, it’s almost equivalent to a firm mattress that allows your body to sink in easily.

If only this had a neck headrest and lumbar support, it would have been a truly great budget chair.

3. AmazonBasics Big Tall Executive Chair

At number 3 we have the AmazonBasics Big Tall Executive Chair. This chair is perfect for both office and gaming use.

One of the main features it boasts is the fully adjustable lumbar settings on top of the curved contours to ensure your body is provided with not just comfort but proper comfort as well.

It may not have genuine leather but the upholstered bonded leather has its own benefits to feature: it’s cheap, resistant to scratches, and is guaranteed to last for years.

Furthermore, this material is cool and soft to the touch. The high back design ensures tall people can sit on the chair comfortably.

And even though this doesn’t have a neck headrest and lumbar support, its design makes up for the absence since the lumbar support can be adjusted to your comfort (knob on right side of chair) and is rather cushiony.

Paired that with a padded armrest, and you have a gaming chair that feels comfortable anywhere your skin touches.

It may not look as fancy as the racing gaming chairs on this list, but its classic design has a charm of its own. It would have been nice if you can do a full back recline but even without it, it still is worth the asking price.

4. Homall Racing Gaming Chair.

At number 4 we have the Homall Racing Gaming Chair. What makes the Homall Racing Gaming Chair great is that shares many of the standard features you would expect to find in higher-end racing chairs.

The chair has a body-conforming design that will help improve your sitting posture. Your body, especially the neck and back, are supported well with the included neck and lumbar pillows.

Keep in mind that the armrests aren’t padded and are solid. So playing for long hours will likely hurt your elbows despite being able to adjust its height.

Aside from that, the recline feature allows you to literally lie flat on your back since the chair can do a full 180-degree recline.

The Homall gaming chair doesn’t produce much noise when you move it either thanks to the rubber protected casters.

Finally, the solid metal frame ensures that the entire chair is sturdy enough to handle weights of up to 330 lbs.

5. Devoko Ergonomic Gaming Chair

At number 5 we have the Devoko Ergonomic Gaming Chair. The Devoko Ergonomic Gaming Chair is equipped with a lot of features you will also find in premium gaming chairs.

This is made of quality polyurethane leather and thick padding. Its high curved back is also covered in breathable premium leather that helps promote proper airflow around your back area.

Plus, the chair has a thickened memory foam. Sadly, the armrests aren’t padded– who would’ve thought that’d be a premium feature?– but it has a concave shape that will fit most arms for slightly better comfort, so that’s better than nothing.

The neck and lumbar support also help improve proper sitting posture. If you feel like you want to lie flat, the computer chair can do a full body recline of up to 180 degrees. Aside from that, the chair also has a top quality mute rolling caster that helps avoid scratching on the floor.

This thing does have a strong smell out of the box so you might want to put it together at a time when you can let it air out some under your carport or something.

6. RESPAWN-200 Racing Style Gaming Chair

At number 6 we have the RESPAWN-200 Racing Style Gaming Chair. One of the best affordable gaming chairs out there is the Respawn 200.

It features a breathable mesh back with a unique lumbar support that’s actually tucked behind the mesh. To adjust the lumbar support, you’ll have to reach around the back and between the vents.

For some this can be a nuisance but once set you dont really have to mess with it too much. I didnt see too many problems with it. It’s also worth noting that this doesn’t have padded armrests unlike the rest of the higher-end gaming chairs; however, were happy to let the Respawn 200 off as it is considerably cheaper.

Aside from that, it can only be adjusted in 2 ways: height and depth. If this had an in-and-out (width) adjustment, it would have been a really great chair.

You can also choose other color options if you don’t like red as it also comes in green, grey, and blue.

And if you really value aesthetics more than anything else, then you might want to be very careful as this has a glossy plastic, which is known to be very susceptible to scratches.

7. Vertagear S-Line SL2000.

At number 7 we have the Vertagear S-Line SL2000. Vertagear is slowly making a name in the gaming chair industry and the S-Line SL2000 is no exception.

The Vertagear S-Line SL2000 offers the same premium feel of DXRacer, AKRacing, and Maxnomic chairs but at a cheaper price.

Build and feel is just like the rest of the popular racing gaming chairs – lumbar support, and reclining features. However, they are somewhat harder and that might cause a problem for some.

Another cool thing about the SL2000 is the fact that the adjustments are ergonomically placed under the armrest for every user’s convenience.

The base also lets you glide easily and functions smoothly like the adjustments under the armrest.

Spilling water or beer all over the chair isnt an issue with the SL2000 since this is made of stain- and water-resistance PVC leather.

8. DXRacer Formula Series DOH/FH11/NE.

At number 8 we have the DXRacer Formula Series DOH/FH11/NE. The DXRacer Formula NE, meanwhile, offers mostly the same experience.

The same downside I outlined previously still applies here. The low weight capacity means that heavier folk won’t be able to enjoy this chair.

However, we shouldn’t speak all negatives. The fact is, the DXRacer line offers some of the best overall comfort and build quality you can get out of a gaming chair.

There’s a reason that this brand is among the most highly-recommended, after all. In addition to superb comfort and build quality, the DXRacer Formula NE offers a variety of color options.

The color options for this chair means that it can fit with just about any gaming setup. Either of the DXRacer chairs are a great pick if you meet the requirements, but if we had to pick one it would definitely be this one. The extra customization goes a long way.

9. DXRacer Formula Series DOH/FD01/NR.

At number 9 we have the DXRacer Formula Series DOH/FD01/NR. The DXRacer brand is one of the most popular gaming chair brands on the market, thanks to their superb comfort and build quality.

If you’ve done any research into this area, chances are you’ve already seen a couple dozen DXRacer recommendations, because by all reports they seem to be the best at gaming chairs.

Are they the best in this range? Not necessarily. The main two problems that ail the Formula NR is a lack of color options and a low weight capacity.

The lack of color options can be a problem for those of us who want everything in our gaming setup to match a certain aesthetic.

If this doesn’t matter much to you, and everything else about the chair is fine, you may as well opt for this chair.

That is, however, if you fit into the low weight capacity. At only 200 lbs of capacity, the DXRacer Formula NR pretty much locks out any heavier gamers from having any hope of properly utilizing the chair.

If you aren’t 175 lbs or under, you probably should opt for a different chair.

10. OPSEAT Master Series PC Gaming Chair.

At number 4 we have the OPSEAT Master Series PC Gaming Chair. The OPSEAT Master Series straddles the $200 line, but does so while being the most fully-featured chair in this video.

First up, it has good weight capacity and great height capacity, offering full back support to people of up to 6’4. It offers quality materials and included cushioning for the headrest and lumbar support as well.

Ultimately, this will provide probably the best comfort out of any of the other chairs on this list. That’s what matters most when shopping for gaming chairs- long-term comfort and support, throughout even the most intensive gaming sessions.

In addition to the superior comfort, it offers a full reclining functionality. This is great for extended hours gaming, working or simply relaxing at your desk.

Finally, there’s a whole lot of color options to choose from. This chair has by far the most color options out of any of the other options on this list. With the great comfort, recline function, general build quality and a wide variety of chair colors, the OPSEAT Master Series is one of the best gaming chair under $300.

11. HON Basyx Task Chair.

And for our final pick at number 11 we have the HON Basyx Task Chair. The HON Basyx Task Chair, or the basyx by HON, as stylized by them, is yet another budget gaming chair under $300.

The Basyx is an interesting pick. It’s technically the lowest-rated option on this list, but it’s still a fine one. Let’s jump into why it’s good.

First and foremost, its level of adjustments is pretty admirable. With adjustable lumbar support, seat width, seat height, seat positioning and recline adjustments, the Basyx is much more customizable than your typical gaming or office chair.

Additionally, its mesh backing offers some flexibility, which is a trait that many prefer in their chairs when they can’t or don’t get chairs with full back support.

Thanks to this, combined with the adjustments, this should be a pretty comfortable chair as long as you fall within the weight and height limits.

Ultimately, though, due to a lack of full back support and cushioning for the headrest/lumbar, we think you’d be better suited going with one of the racing chairs in this roundup. If you prefer a more compact seat, though, this may be the option for you.

So that sums up our top 11 best  gaming chairs under $300. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a comment. Until next time have a great day.
