Noblechairs Epic (opens in new tab)

Noblechairs Epic (black and copper) | 4D armrests | PU leather | $499 $199 at Noblechairs (save $300) (opens in new tab)
Noblechairs has a handful of key designs for its gaming chairs: the Epic, the Hero, and the Icon. Our favourite is probably the Hero, but we've rested our rears on all three and they're all very close to one another in terms of comfort and style. It's hard to pass up the Epic at this price, anyways, and it looks lovely in black and copper.

AndaSeat Jungle 2 | Neck pillow | Lumbar support | Footrest |  $249.99 (opens in new tab)

AndaSeat Jungle 2 | Neck pillow | Lumbar support | Footrest | $249.99 $199.99 at AndaSeat (save $50) (opens in new tab)
Already decent value for the money, we scored the AndaSeat Jungle a 70 in our testing (opens in new tab). It's not that it's a terrible chair, just a little off when it comes to the footrest and finish, otherwise it's a great chair for the money. Nice and wide, too.

$299.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Enki X | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | $299.99 $229.99 at Best Buy (save $70) (opens in new tab)
Now we're talking: a Razer gaming chair that doesn't break the bank. Surprisingly, you'll find a lot of similarities between this and the more expensive standard Enki model, including an overall comfortable design and plenty of recline. The differences to note are 2D armrests on the X, along with the lack of head cushion.

Razer Enki | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | 4D armrests | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Enki | 299 lbs max | 152 degree recline | 4D armrests | $399.99 $339.99 at Best Buy ($60) (opens in new tab)
Razer has a few models of gaming chair to choose from, and the Enki is a more pared-back option versus its more involved (and more expensive) Iskur. The funny thing is Razer has also made cheaper versions of both the Enki and Iskur, denoted with an X, so you have a lot of options available to you at any budget. Choose the standard Enki if you want an excellent headrest and highly adjustable armrests, as you lose those on the Enki X. Otherwise, the Enki X appears the better value proposition right now.

Secretlab OMEGA 2020 Series Gaming Chair (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Omega Cloud9 edition | 4D armrests | $569 $389 at Secretlab (save $180) (opens in new tab)
Wrapped in Secretlab prime 2.0 PU Leather, this Classic Omega gaming chair is the more reasonably priced choice. It may not come with magnetic headrests but it's highly adjustable. In fact, this still ranks as one of our favorite gaming chairs. The cheapest versions tend to come in esports flair, so it's worth checking those models out to see which you like most.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Worlds 2021 edition | 4D armrests | $659 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Worlds 2021 edition | 4D armrests | $659 $439 at Secretlab (save $220) (opens in new tab)
This is the cheapest version of the Titan Evo 2022 we can find right now. It's the same impressive and excellent chair we love, except it's styled after last year's Worlds esports tournament. If you don't care about looks, this might be the one to go for. Or if you love Worlds that much? Otherwise, more plain or exciting options are available for a touch more cash.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Classic | 4D armrests | $589 $484 at Secretlab (save $105) (opens in new tab)
This is our pick for the best gaming chair (opens in new tab), and you'll know why once you sit in it. Or read our Secretlab Titan Evo review (opens in new tab). As for this specific design, it's one of the more understated of the lot. It's not as sensual to the touch as the Softweave fabric choice, but still boasts immaculately upholstered, premium quality Neo Hybrid Leatherette, and of course fantastic ergonomics. The full price can be a bit deceiving on Secretlab chairs, as we rarely ever see it, but this is still a good deal on a great chair.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Plush Pink | 4D armrests | $609 $504 at Secretlab (save $105) (opens in new tab)
Nothing makes a statement to your streaming audience (or live-in partner) like a baby pink gaming chair, but of course there are other colours to chose from. It's a standout choice for the Softweave Plus Fabric design, and is a top tier design, pink or not.

Razer Iskur X | 299 lbs max | 4D armrests | $399.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Iskur X | 299 lbs max | 4D armrests | $399.99 $284.99 at Best Buy (save $115) (opens in new tab)
Razer knows what it's doing when it comes to good quality peripherals, and its chairs are no different. With a loud green trim and subtle snakeskin design, the Iskur is a distinctive gaming chair, from a trusted brand.

Black Friday office chair deals in the US

$649 (opens in new tab)

NeueChair Silver | Adjustable armrests | NeueMesh materials | Ergonomic design | $649 $609 at SecretLab (save $40)
(opens in new tab)Did you know that Secretlab also makes office chairs? The NeueChair takes all the comfort and durability of a Secretlab gaming chair but strips away the entire gamer look. It's designed to improve posture and reduce strain on your back after long working hours or gaming. One nice touch is that the chair's height and backrest tilt levers are actually in the armrests, so you don't have to reach down awkwardly to adjust the chair. 

Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody Gaming Chair (opens in new tab)

Herman Miller Embody | Adjustable armrests | Polyester upholstery | Ergonomic design | $1,795 $1,346 at Herman Miller (save $449) (opens in new tab)
The Embody is perhaps one of the comfiest chairs you'll ever sit in. It's also likely one of the most expensive chairs you'll ever sit in. It's an investment for sure, but your back, neck, and spine will thank you. These chairs are built to last and even have a 12-year warranty if something ever goes wrong.

Herman Miller Aeron (opens in new tab)

Herman Miller Aeron | Breathable fabric | Highly adjustable | ergonomic design | $1,795 $1,436 at Herman Miller (save $359) (opens in new tab)
Slightly cheaper than the Embody we love for gaming, the Aeron is much more of an office chair in its styling. That said, it offers a highly breathable design for long-term comfort, making it great for running raids. With straightforward ergonomics and compact size, it's a great choice for anyone looking beyond the gaming chair aesthetic. Like the Embody, you can expect at least 12 years out of this chair under warranty.

Anda Seat Kaiser 2 | 4D armrests | 160 degree recline | £349.99 (opens in new tab)

Anda Seat Kaiser 2 | 4D armrests | 160 degree recline | £349.99 £279.99 at Amazon (save £70) (opens in new tab)
We've rested our rump on the Kaiser 2 and found it perfectly suited to big and tall gamers. It's very well built, but beyond that it offers a lot of the features we'd expect from a high-end chair with a more moderate price tag today.

Noblechairs Epic (opens in new tab)

Noblechairs Epic Gaming Chair (black and copper) | 4D armrests | PU leather | £329.99 £284.99 at Overclockers UK (save £45) (opens in new tab)
Noblechairs has a handful of key designs for its gaming chairs: the Epic, the Hero, and the Icon. Our favourite is probably the Hero, but we've rested our rears on all three and they're all very close to one another in terms of comfort and style. It's hard to pass up the Epic at this price, anyways, and it looks lovely in black and copper.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 (opens in new tab)

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Classic | 4D armrests | £544 £344 at Secretlab (save $200) (opens in new tab) 
This is our pick for the best gaming chair (opens in new tab), and you'll know why once you sit in it. Or read our Secretlab Titan Evo review (opens in new tab). As for this specific design, it's one of the more understated of the lot. It's not as sensual to the touch as the Softweave fabric choice, but still boasts immaculately upholstered, premium quality Neo Hybrid Leatherette, and of course fantastic ergonomics.

Black Friday office chair deals in the UK

Herman Miller Sayl | Plenty of colour options | £716 (opens in new tab)

Herman Miller Sayl | Plenty of colour options | £716 £572.80 at Herman Miller (save £143.20) (opens in new tab)
I've only had the pleasure of sitting in a Sayl chair in an actual office, but damn if it wasn't a step-up from the regular cheapo office chairs I was used to. It's not got a high back to it, which might make it less suitable for lounging around playing games, but it's a great, and very colourful, choice for a small at-home office. It's pretty compact and doesn't dominate a room.

Herman Miller Aeron (opens in new tab)

Herman Miller Aeron | Breathable fabric | Highly adjustable | ergonomic design | £1,312 £1,049.60 at Herman Miller (save £262.40) (opens in new tab)
There's no Embody deal in the Herman Miller UK sale, but the Aeron is available. Here's what we love about it:

Slightly cheaper than the Embody we favour for gaming, the Aeron is much more of an office chair in its styling. That said, it offers a highly breathable design for long-term comfort, and that actually makes it pretty great for running raids. With straightforward ergonomics and a compact size, it's a great choice for anyone looking beyond the gaming chair aesthetic. Like the Embody, you can expect at least 12 years out of this chair under warranty.

When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday 2022 is on November 25 this year and will effectively last through until Cyber Monday on November 28. 

In reality, Black Friday is now a month-long event running pretty much throughout the entirety of November. Indeed, since Amazon kicked things off with its Prime Early Access event in October, the deals have been rolling along since then.

What should I look for in a Black Friday gaming chair deal?

Durability has to be one of the key tenets of any Black Friday gaming chair purchase, as does support. If your bargain purchase starts to expose its metal frame six weeks into life as your gaming throne, and the padding sags depressingly, then you might as well be perched on top of a beer keg for all the support you're getting.

At the very least, you need to make sure that the gaming chair you have your eye on can offer some lumbar support, as well as adjustable arm rests. When you're typing or WASDing at a desk, those elbows need to be raised just so (opens in new tab). Neck pillows or an adjustable head rest are also worthy of your time and money, but you also want to make sure you actually fit the thing too.

It's not always easy to get a bead on a chair's size from an online search, so make sure to thoroughly check the measurements before dropping a dollar on a new seat. There will be maximum height and weight recommendations for most chairs, and that's absolutely worth paying attention to. 

We recommend only the chairs we feel hit the mark in terms of durability and support.

Do I need a gaming chair or office chair?

Why not one chair that fulfils both roles? There are two ways to go about this, but both are valid.

On the one hand, you look at a pricier office chair, such as the Herman Miller Embody, as both a gaming throne and something for the office. I use this chair at home, and find it offers the comfort for eight hours a day, five days a week, but also allows me to relax into a more comfortable position for gaming in the evenings.

The other option is to buy a premium gaming chair and use that in the office. Our top pick for a gaming chair in 2022, the Secretlab Titan Evo, is well-suited to such a task. In fact, I also use this in the office. It's ergonomic, comfortable, and it doesn't look too out of place surrounded by bog-standard chairs. At least not in the usual black finish I have. Maybe some would, but who said an office chair shouldn't have personality?

So, yeah, don't feel pigeonholed into one design or the other, so long as whatever you pick is actually ergonomic, well-built, and feels comfy over long sessions.

What size gaming chair do I need?

If you're buying for yourself it can be a tough job knowing which size of gaming chair to get. If you're buying for someone else, it can be even tougher. Generally, we recommend the standard seat size, as there's nothing worse than a cramped bucket seat. These can become uncomfortable over time, and even wear away the fabric at points.

Some brands will offer just a regular and large gaming chair, while others may offer a small as well. These also can correspond to different maximum weights, too, so you might want to consider that. 

Our one piece of advice is to look out for chairs with flat, or relatively flat, seat cushions. We find these are the most comfortable for most people, but especially those of us that sit in unusual positions.
