If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…

We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too).
And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?
See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.
We’re different. We’re a small Aussie business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you).
So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.

Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.

‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).

Pros: Easy to set up to get a comfortable driving position, I use it with 3 pedals and don't find the centre post a problem. Very happy with it for the price. Cons: There is movement in the center post of you sit there and wiggle the wheel in all directions, but I never notice it while driving. Seat is on the firm side and may get uncomfortable if you use it for long sessions.
Solid enough and sleek. Seat needs a little bolstering and overall material is lower grade. With I’d paid less.
I bought this for my Son to play "Dirt". Before he was clamping the steering wheel and shifter on tables and step stools, and the floor pedals would slide a little on the floor, now he has this (as a Christmas gift). He put it together himself (there is quite a bit of parts, takes an 45 mins to 2 hours to to assemble, depending on your tool skills), he's 17. He mounted all the controls on this "cockpit' and it's very sturdy, and comfortable, and well thought out (bolts placement and adjustments are well thought out). He is very happy with this gift!
Overall a good product that provides support where you need it. There’s not much lumbar support but if you adjust the seat well enough it’s not needed as much. The height adjustment for the steering wheel base could be better as the knob adjustments loosen themselves if it experiences too much vibrations; easily remedied by just tightening them up before each race you do.
Wheel wobble but overall well made
