Design and Features
The YITAHOME Supreme Massage Gaming Chair arrived in a large box.
“Pure and Easy?” Ok, if you say so…
The chair arrives in pieces and needs assembly. Thankfully, YITAHOME’s assembly manual is very well written and illustrated, making this process painless.
To make matters easier, YITAHOME includes a double-ended tool with a hex wrench on one side and a Phillips screwdriver on the other. This is the only tool needed to complete the assembly of the chair. Nice!
Once all of the parts were freed from their plastic bags and protective foam.
from start to finish, assembly took about 30 minutes. That’s pretty good in my book.
Ta-daaaa! The assembled YITAHOME Supreme Massage Gaming Chair!
Overall, I like the design of the YITAHOME Supreme Massage Gaming Chair, but the YITAHOME logos are pretty garish, one on the head pillow, one on the lumbar cushion, and one on the footrest. The pillow and cushion are removable and the footrest is retractable so the logos can be hidden, but that defeats some of the utility of the chair. I also think because the logos are so… prominent, YITAHOME chairs might not be considered for office environments.
The height of the seat and armrests is adjustable and the chair swivels freely.
Just be careful not to get dizzy!
Controls are right-hand accessible.
Ahhh, reclining in this chair is lovely!
The casters move freely and easily across my hardwood floor, but in some circumstances, maybe a bit too freely. On a few occasions, I felt the chair scooting out from under me when I tried to sit. I didn’t fall, but it was an uneasy feeling. Maybe some friction adjustments or brakes on a few of the casters would help.
This chair is marketed on Amazon for “big and tall” people, but my wife and I are on the short side. I’m 5’6” and my wife is a tiny 4’9”. Despite that, both of us were able to find very comfortable seating positions.
I especially liked the retractable footrest. It’s very comfortable!
After sitting for a while, the YITAHOME Supreme Massage Gaming Chair’s USB-powered lumbar massage cushion feels exceptionally good. I was concerned about repeatedly running over the cable when the chair moves around, so running the cushion off a USB battery is the way to go here.
What I Like
- Well-written, easy to follow assembly instructions
- Only one tool is needed for assembly and it’s included!
- Very comfortable, even for shorter people!
What I Would Change
- Brakes or locks on the casters to prevent excessive motion
- Tone down the garish logos
My wife and I compared several of the chairs we have around the house and decided that her favorite is the YITAHOME Massage Gaming Chair. She’s not a gamer, but the chair will be ideal for her sewing. It’s comfortable, adjustable, easy to assemble, and will be a great addition to her sewing room!
