Gaming seats have always been marketed as a Racing type seat, with bucket seat looks and more of a mean look to them. Chairs with a sort of an Indy car flair, seams a bit off I think if you are not into racing or racing sims but it makes a little sense in this case.
Maingear has been known since 2008 to build some high-end gaming machines with a sporty kind of automotive theme so it only made sense that they would step into the gaming chair scene. With that, today’s review will be of Maingear’s latest and first line of gaming chairs, and why not start at the top with the Forma R Limited Edition.
Before we get into the chair itself though, let’s get into the features and specifications of the chair so you can see just a bit on how well thought out this chair is, though not perfect.

The Box is HUGE at 37” by 27” by 14” and its heavy, about 65 pounds so make sure you have some room to open it up. Let’s go over the unboxing so that we can see what’s inside.
A ton of stuff and packaged incredibly well as you saw in the video. Before we can actually build it up, we need to check out each of the pieces to make sure everything is there and to see the potential quality of each piece, so let’s jump on over to the next section, Piece by Piece.

I have spent many years in the PC boutique name space as Product Development Engineer for Alienware and later Dell through Alienware’s acquisition and finally Velocity Micro. During these years I spent my time developing new configurations, products and technologies with companies such as AMD, Asus, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA and more. The Arts, Gaming, New & Old technologies drive my interests and passion. Now as my day job, I am an IT Manager but doing reviews on my time and my dime.
