If you are looking for a cheap gaming chair, you probably already saw the Homall Gaming Chair Racing Style. And as you can see, this the best seller gaming chair on Amazon.
First, you must understand that Homal isn’t a very well known gaming chair manufacturer. Still, they manage to be the most selling chair on Amazon.
Well, today we are going to take a look at these gaming chairs to see if they are good, and most importantly, to see which one is the best for you.
Chairs design and dimensions
Depending on the model you choose, the sizes of the chair will vary. Some models are more spacious than other. So, depending on your height and weight, you have to choose the one that will fit you the best. Check out my guide on how to choose a gaming chair without trying it if you want to learn more about.
So, the Homal gaming chair comes in 3 different models, or 6 if you count the different colors.
The first thing is to choose which one will fit you.
Today we will review only the base model which is the least expensive. The 2 other models need a separate article to review them.
Homall Gaming Chair Racing Style High-Back PU Leather Office Chair
This is the cheapest one, and probably the most popular. You can check out the price on Amazon if you want.
The dimensions are
- Back: 22.5″X30.5″(LXW)
- Seat: 19.8″X20.5″(LXW)
To be honest, the seat is quite small and the backrest too. This is clearly not designed to be used by big and tall guy. But at this price, this is not a big surprise. You see, you cannot have a big gaming chair under 100$… this is not possible. The main reason is the bigger the chair is, the more it will cost because the manufacturer has to use more material.
That being said, if you are 5’9″ tall and below, this chair should be perfect for you.
Homall Executive Swivel Faux Leather Gaming Chair, Racing Style High-Back Office Chair (Blue)
This one is the same design and dimensions than the previous one. The only thing that change is the color which is now blue.
The price is also a little bit higher, but still under $100. I am not sure why the price is higher, but

Homall Gaming Chair Racing Style High-Back (Red)
Again this is the same model as before, but this time it comes in red. This one cost a little more than the blue and white version. The price is around $100, but it can change at any times. If you want to see the exact price click here to see it directly on Amazon.
- Weight capacity: 300 lbs
- Adjustable Armrests: No
- Adjustable backrest angle: 90°-180° max
- Rocking chair mechanism: yes
- Cover material: PU leather or Faux-Leather
- 5-point base
As you can see, the features of this chair are basic. The main problem for me is the lack of adjustable armrests. Having armrest that can be adjusted is a huge plus in terms of comfort.
But as this is a low-end chair, I excepted that…
On the other hand, you have a fully adjustable backrest angle that can go up to 180° which allows you to relax at any time if you want.
When you take into account the price, the features that you get with this chair are amazing.
There are a lot of chairs that offer fewer features, for more a much higher price. So this is definitively a good deal.
So is it comfortable?
The vast majority of the customer’s reviews say that the chair is comfortable. However, one of the main complaints is the lack of padding on the seat which is not a surprise to me.
Besides that, everything seems to be fine for the most part.
I was very surprised to see that even some large individual founded this chair comfortable. For a $100 gaming chair that is pretty impressive. I have reviewed other cheap gaming chairs, and this one seems to be more comfortable than the GTRacing gaming chair.
That being said, I would recommend avoiding these very cheap gaming chairs if you are a large individual. Some reviews reported that the gas piston randomly fails which make the chair to sink.
Regarding that gas piston, it is a class-3 gas-lift which is a little bit unusual. You see, most of the gaming chair company use a class-4 gas-lift for their product. The difference between these two types of gas-lift is the maximum load ( around 300 lbs for the class-3 vs 500 lbs for a class-4). Here Homall uses a class-3 gas-lift to the max of his capacity which makes it less durable. To be fair, they have to make these kinds of sacrifice if they want to keep the price down.
Is it sturdy enough?
If you are in the 220-250 lbs range, this chair will be sturdy enough. But if you tend to weight around 270-290 lbs I recommend you to search for another product as this one will not last you long enough.
You see, it might not break down immediately, but you will start to see more and more failure over time, especially with the gas-lift. You will experience squeaking from the chair over time.
Is it easy to assemble?
Yes, 99% of people said that it was very easy to assemble. In 10-20 minutes it should be done with no effort. The only thing is the instruction manual is not very well written. It is mostly constituted of images with no text. But you should be able to figure out how to mount the chair very easily.
I have also read some reviews talking about not align screw holes, and already damaged product at the arrival. If nothing of that nature happens, you are good to go.
So should you buy this Homall Gaming chair?
Well, it depends. If you have a very tight budget, and you are not very bulky, sure this is a good deal.
But you have to keep in mind that this is a low-end product, so don’t get your expectation too high.
Where to buy it?
The only place where you can find this chair is on Amazon. So if you want to check it out just click here.
