At a look, the Anda Seat T-Pro 2 gaming chair appears to be like like your typical racing-style chair. In truth, it’s almost equivalent to the Dark Knight save two key variations: the material end and the dearth of “seatbelt” holes close to the highest of the again. The total chair is completed with the corporate’s “AD Alpha Linen Fabric” with a velour-type end on the sides of the seatback and seat base. The material is stitched along with a minimal, however good trying, design. Anda Seat describes the material end on its web site:
“The AD Alpha Linen Fabric is used on the high-end AndaSeat chairs, providing clean bonded PVC leather-based with scratch and stain-resistant. The high-end high quality of the fabric was designed and made with the whole consolation of humankind in thoughts. Not solely it’s straightforward to wash, but in addition a lot stronger to maintain the form to final. AD Alpha Linen Fabric doesn’t include any dangerous quantities of parts, good for adults and children.”
Not solely does the material end look good (our assessment unit was blue however you may also get mild gray or black), however it’s also gentle and cozy in opposition to the pores and skin in the event you’re carrying shorts. The seat base is sweet and thick, rising on all sides to assist preserve you in place. The again is properly plush as properly, wrapping barely inwards round your mid-section.
The chair’s again curves outwards at about shoulder top. Continuing up, the chair curves again inwards for the headrest, flattening out on high. On the entrance of the seatback, close to the highest, the Anda Seat wordmark is stitched into the material on each the back and front of the seatback. The Anda Seat brand is stitched into the center of the again of the chair as properly. The again adjusts between 90 and 160 levels, permitting you to set it at your required consolation degree. The chair was equally comfy throughout prolonged periods when used for normal laptop work or gaming on the Xbox.
On both aspect of the chair is a 4D armrest. That is, they regulate in 4 alternative ways (extra on that in a bit). The armrests themselves are about 10-1/2 by 4-inches, a pleasant match, a minimum of for my arms.
The T-Pro 2 chair additionally comes with two reminiscence foam pillows as properly. Both are completed in the identical gentle black velour that accents the chair itself. The Anda Seat brand is stitched into each pillows. The first is a big lumbar cushion that simply sits on the backside of the chair. Roughly 13-inches in top and 14-inches large, it’s between 2 1/2 and 4-inches thick. The headrest is fairly customary in form and dimension. Shaped like a bone, it’s 10- to 11-inches large, 4- to 7-inches in top, and 4-inches thick. A versatile strap with a buckle is connected to the again to safe it across the seatback’s high. Both pillows are ultra-comfortable with their reminiscence foam insides, and each have zippers so you possibly can take away the pillow and wash the covers ought to you want to.
Underneath all of it, the T-Pro 2 gaming chair has a metal framework with outsized bars. Wrapped round that is high-density mould shaping foam. There’s no query it simply supported my 200lb+, 6′ body, and it’s rated for as much as 441lbs.
The base of the chair is a five-star base constructed out of metallic. Each base arm has a 65mm (2.55″) caster wheel, which rotates simply when transferring the chair round. Attached to that is the SGS certificated Class 4 hydraulic piston, which, in flip, is connected to the chair. Instead of going straight up, the chair mechanism mounting really angles in the direction of the entrance of the chair. It does look completely different and just like the chair would lean ahead however as soon as assembled, it’s as stable as you will get in a chair.
If you just like the gaming chair design for consolation whereas sitting for lengthy intervals of time however need a extra subdued search for the workplace, the T-Pro 2 positively suits the invoice.
Assembly of the Anda Seat T-Pro 2 gaming chair is fairly simple. A single individual can do it; nevertheless, a few steps are simpler with a second pair of fingers. Working alone, it took me about half-hour to assemble the chair. This time included opening and unpacking the field. Speaking of the field, the whole lot is properly packaged and guarded within the field, with nothing being broken upon the primary inspection.
There are ten steps to meeting. First, take away the 4 pre-installed screws — two from all sides — from the backrest with the included hex Allen key. Even although it takes a bit extra time, I like that Anda Seat pre-installed the screws. You then know precisely the place each goes, and also you don’t threat being quick or dropping one when ripping over the standard bag.
Once the backrest is aligned to the seat base, screw the 4 screws again in and tighten. Next, connect the left and proper aspect covers over the help brackets on the aspect of the chair.
Once the again is on, flip the chair over and take away the 4 screws from the bottom. Align the chair mechanism, ensuring the sticker with the arrow pointing in the direction of the entrance is correctly oriented. The subsequent step is to insert the wheels into the five-star base till they click on.
Flipping the bottom over, insert the fuel elevate piston into the bottom, then slide the piston cowl over the fuel elevate. Finally, line up the seat base and again element over the fuel elevate and the chair is assembled.
The chair comes with a removable lumbar cushion and a removable headrest cushion. The lumbar cushion rests in opposition to the underside of the seatback and isn’t secured in place. The removable headrest attaches to the seat again by means of a single strap that wraps across the high of the seatback.
As far as chairs go, the meeting was fairly simple and simple sufficient to finish in a comparatively quick time.
Ease of Use
Like the Anda Seat Dark Knight gaming chair, the T-Pro 2 could be adjusted in a number of methods. The seat backrest could be adjusted barely ahead or again to about 160 levels. To accomplish that, pull the deal with on the appropriate aspect of the seat and lean ahead or again till you could have the specified angle. Once there, launch the deal with, and it’ll lock in place.
On the appropriate aspect, however underneath the seat, is the lever to regulate the seat top. Tilt it as much as regulate the seat top and launch it when you’re at your required place — fairly customary operation for gaming chairs usually.
The chair additionally encompasses a Leisure Mode. This permits you some leeway in tilting the complete chair ahead or again. To allow or disable this, pull the deal with underneath the left aspect of the seat up. When enabled, it lets you tilt the complete chair forwards and backwards at your leisure (pun supposed). If you attain underneath the seat, there’s a knob you possibly can twist to regulate how straightforward the Leisure Mode tilts forwards and backwards.
Finally, the 4D armrests! Most chairs have armrests that transfer up and down and will transfer out and in as properly barely. On the Anda Seat T-Pro 2, not solely do they transfer up and down, however they transfer horizontally, sideways, and even twist inwards. To transfer it up and down, there’s a lever on the surface of the armrest help. On the armrest’s inside edge is a button close to the entrance for transferring it ahead or again. On the inside edge, slightly below the armrest, is one other button that lets you transfer it back and forth. To twist the armrest, seize the entrance fringe of the armrest and twist. It could be angled in a single step, left straight, or angled out as soon as step.
Overall, the chair is straightforward to regulate and comes with loads of adjustable choices to offer you the “match” that fits your consolation ranges.
At first, I discovered the Anda Seat T-Pro 2 to be a bit firmer than the Dark Knight. After some time, nevertheless, the firmness appeared simply superb, particularly when coupled with the reminiscence foam lumbar and neck help pillows. We ended up swapping out my spouse’s outdated workplace chair for this one, and she or he’s complained much less about her hips hurting on the finish of a protracted day sitting in entrance of the pc. While she forgoes the neck relaxation, she does discover that the again lumbar help pillow helps with consolation.
The Anda Seat T-Pro 2 is listed for US$549.99 on Anda Seat’s website and $499.99 on Amazon. At the common value, that is in keeping with high-end gaming and workplace chairs. However, each websites listing a reduction bringing the chair all the way down to $349.99, which is a implausible value for this chair.
While the Dark Knight provides up barely higher lumbar help, it’s pricier. If you’re on the lookout for a high quality gaming chair that’s extra inexpensive and doesn’t look misplaced within the workplace, the Anda Seat T-Pro 2 is a stable alternative. While the Dark Knight earned an Editor’s Choice award, the T-Pro 2 remains to be worthy of a Top Pick right here at Techaeris.
