I wouldn't call the NZXT H210i small, it's barely smaller than the Riotoro CR1080 / CR1088.

Sure there is smaller out there but it's smaller than your average gaming pc

Got this today.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


Just put it together. Everything seems to be pretty good quality and it looks great. Feels solid, good weight. Adjustments are great. I can finally get good arm support.

Mesh seems good, strong but flexible tight mesh. Very comfortable compared to my old chair. I've never really used a high end one to compare it to that though.

Couple of minor niggles. The headrest is fine when leaning back into the chair but doesn't do much sitting upright normally.

The lower back support doesn't really flex all the way around your back either but is giving extra support. Will need more time to see how comfortable this is.

Can take a bit for you back to adjust to a new chair.

Funny enough I just today got a standard office chair myself to replace this gaming one that was gifted to me. Paid about the same from a local office supplier. Less comfy but I can get closer to the desk with the arms taken off it. Made a little video about it.

Before I watched the video I said to myself how the hell could he remove the arms and be comfortable. But the way your desk is you can go in real close and rest your arms on the counter.

Edit: Seems dear for what it is imo.

Got it from an office supplier who is mainly B2B, so I think their markup might've been higher than normal. But at the same time I think it delivers more than it looks visually. It feels X100 better than those bog standard €20 yokes you see all over the place. Being local I actually got to sit in it and ask questions a few times to the lad there and they delivered it the next day for free. Being able to sit in it, see that the arms were removal and get measurements on them was important to me. I'm 6,3 so ergonomics are always a feckin' nightmare.

Seems expensive for what it is.


I have the arms on my Aeron wayyyy down the bottom of their travel so I can slide under the desk. Works a treat.


Robert wtf did you do to that poor monitor?

Hm you think I should return it and get something better then? Like I said I only got it today so it's possible they'll take it back if I bark about it soon.

Also which monitor? 🤣

Ouch. I'm happy for the price I paid tbh. A total steal at £100.

What are you using to check the price history?
