In today's market, hundreds of online companies sell their own design on gaming chairs while only rebranding and re-selling the product itself. As we all know, gaming chairs are expensive and all types of gamers just want to be comfortable while playing. We don’t want the lasting numbness or continuous back and neck pain to plague our gaming experience.


Bottom Line

Overall, Secretlab brings a well-rounded, durable, and comfortable gaming chair to the community. Coming in at $540, the TITAN Evo 2022 gaming chair is a valuable investment to fit your gaming needs. Customer support is great and it comes with a standard 3-year warranty that can be extended to 5 years for free.

First Impressions

I’ll be honest, in the past, I have been rather cheap when it comes to spending money on a gaming chair. I finally had enough with the Amazon buys and figured I would invest in my gaming setup. Secretlab is highly rated and flaunts a 3-year warranty which I figured I would give it a shot. Straight out of the box, you’ll find that Secretlab neatly packs everything together and I was rather impressed with the quality. Included is a large poster-sized instruction board with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to assemble your new chair. Everything is laid out for you and separated inside the box. Each part is heavy duty and you can tell that it is made to last.


Design Features

One of the coolest features of this chair that sets it apart from others is its built-in adjustable lumbar support. The lumbar support has two separate knobs, lower and upper back, which can be dialed in however you see fit. The armrests can be moved up, down, left, right, forward, and backward. Another key feature to highlight here is the streamlined design that uses magnetic connections for a few of the parts on the chair. The padded armrest itself is magnetic and can be pulled off the top and has the option to be easily replaced if damaged. The back of the chair can be tilted forward or reclined with the lever located on the right side. Additionally, there is a tilt lever that enables you to freely tilt back and forth or lock at any angle.


Customizations & Options

On Secretlab’s website, you’ll find that there are a generous amount of options, accessories, and customizations to choose from. If you choose the leatherette material, there are a ton of cool custom designs to choose from. I personally love the DC collection and The Witcher style design. With the fabric material, the only downside is the designs are slightly limited and focus more on various color combinations. Provided with the purchase, you will receive a microfiber plush head pillow which is magnetized to stick to the upper headrest of the chair. I was slightly skeptical at first about the “memory foam head pillow” and thought it might be one of the cheap throw pillows that everyone includes similar to the lumbar pillow. Fortunately, Secretlab proved me wrong and the pillow itself is extremely comfortable.


Customer Support & Warranty

Secretlab chairs come standard with a 3-year warranty from the factory. Once you receive your product, you will be sent an email and given the chance to extend your warranty by an extra 2 years. All that's needed to be done is to fill out the form provided, (serial numbers, proof of purchase, and account info) and post a picture of your new Secretlab chair on social media! Make sure to include the hashtag #secretlab and you will receive a follow-up email saying your product's warranty is valid and has been extended. After about 3 weeks of owning this chair, I ran into a slight issue. It started to develop a weird noise within the back of the seat in which I followed up with Secretlab to diagnose the problem. At first, it was thought to be a problem with the back of the chair but after a week of using the replacement, it still had the same noise. Customer support was very helpful and had me send more videos to pinpoint the problem. Immediately they sent out an additional replacement lever adjustment which came with a DIY instructional video. Secretlab definitely pulled through on this one and I have had no problems since.


Personal Experience

For years I went the cheap route, buying crappy chairs from the Facebook Marketplace or buying the $100 Amazon gaming/office chairs. These would only last maybe 6 months or so before my body was sore and uncomfortable while having to constantly readjust. I was set on not spending a chunk of change for a nice gaming chair until the last cheap Amazon chair ruined my gaming experience. I realized I was wasting a lot of money being cheap and after doing my research, I sent it and bought the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022. This chair was an investment to make my gaming experience more pleasant while keeping my body comfortable. At first, due to the firmness of the chair, I wasn't sure if it was right for me but I eventually got used to it and after a few days, I realized I felt just as comfortable as I did when I initially sat down.


Should You Buy It?

The firmness provides the extra support, the materials are great and the reclining feature is comfortable enough to put you to sleep. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new gaming chair. Don't let the higher price point scare you away as it is definitely worth it in the long run. I am more than happy with my purchase and after my experience with customer support, I know the free 5-year extended warranty will be held upon their end. Most of my experience with customer support has been relatively poor so cheers to Secretlab!
