Has it ever been done?

Has the mag ever done a chair labs test?

It may sound strange but I've been searching for a decent leather chair as I spend long periods of time at my computer and there is just loads to choose from..

It's been talked about but never done... until now.

If enough people express interest in this thread then I'll certainly consider doing one.

James,

That would be fantastic if you would do one as I'm sure many people would be interested.

Personally, I've been looking for ages at computer chairs ranging from 50 - 500. Leather, executive, ergonomic. I'm sure there is a large criteria on how you can review chairs but good to find out which is best "bang for buck".

Regards

But make sure to test some 'normal' chairs. A lot of things with the 'gaming' sticker on are a lot of bark and no bite, it would be interesting to see how a normal 'operator chair stacks up.

Robustness would be a good thing to measure. Most chairs tend to be a bit flimsy. And no, I don't have a fat arse so that's not the reason.

I think its a fantastic idea but there are several issues involved, such as peoples material preferences (personally I dont like leather chairs), arms vs. armless (personally I prefer armless), 4-legs vs. center swivel (I'm a 4-legs+casters kinda guy myself), etc. And many of these criteria come down to personal preference.

A review like this could certainly be effective, but I think in order to do it properly and make it worth while you would have to do several tests with different groups of chairs/categories, and then have a cumulative review of all of them for things like build quality, stability, and all other characteristics that can be applied to any chair.

Yep, wheel out the chairs and make it a proper labs, not Custom Kit.

Certainly more useful than Fireworks (if that Labs ever went ahead, I think I missed that issue)

That's Ok, sounds like the fans labs all over again and they pulled that one off without many hitches.
