Vertagear SL4000 Gaming Chair Review

Introduction, Technical Specification and Colour Options

Vertagear SL4000 Review


Whether it be work or play, if, like us you spend what is most probably a large proportion of your life sitting at the keyboard then it's critically important that you are both comfortable and well supported.  No, we're not suggesting you undertake a VDU user risk assessment, however we are suggesting you at least look at the chair you're in and determine whether it's fit for purpose.  if it's not, or if you just fancy a change, then it's well worth having a look at the new range of racing themed chairs from Vertagear.  Today we're going to look at the SL4000 which represents the middle of the S-Line range, sitting above the SL2000 and below the SL5000.  All of the chairs are available in a range of colours as seen below, with the exception of the top of the range SL5000 which for some reason is only available in Carbon Black.


Technical Specification

Rather than a great list of numbers, we though the best way to impart the Technical specification was via this rather excellent image, courtesy of the Vertagear Website.

Nice chair, some of the adjustments remind me a lot of the Herman Miller Mirra Chair.
The black and white color scheme = win!Quote

The big test on chairs for me is the bum foam. Every time I have ever had to buy a new chair was because over time the bum foam goes and you end up sitting on a piece of plywood or a sheet of hard plastic.

Bummer, literally. I've spent £250 on a cream leather chair and the bum foam went after a year.

Now? I'm sick of buying chairs and thinking that higher prices equal higher quality bum foam.

I bought a Herman Miller around a year ago and I can safely say that the bum foam is still every bit as good as it was the day I bought it.

So the true test of a chair for me isn't when it's new and I would therefore avoid chairs like this one in the review, especially when for exactly the they same price I could buy a genuine Sparco race seat ready mounted to an office chair base.

Another huge test with chairs is the hydraulic strut and again, they never have issues when new only over time. Sitting in your chair slowly watching your desk get bigger actually sucks ballsQuote

I'm clearly a child, "Bum foam" made me chuckle on more than on occasion!

As for the hydraulic lift, i have replaced the one on my chair twice over the last 3 years, just about to buy another one!Quote

I did this when I changed the seats in my Esprit .


Over time though I found it less and less comfortable. The seat was fine in the car, reclined and tootling along, but not ideal for sat in front of a computer. Scrapped the idea and now use a generic Ikea chair.

I like the idea of these type of gaming chairs and would like to try one, but it's an expensive test if I ended up not liking it.Quote
