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…

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.
Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service? Probably not.

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.

If you're around 6ft or taller... beware of the leg room available. Width also becomes a factor if you're a little on the bigger side.
I like the chair as a starter getting into sim racing a little mostly play forza. Biggest complaint as a guy 6'2" the steering wheel is very close and uncomfortable for long periods of time. But pedals go out pretty far and hook in solid dont move. Also I dont have one dont plan on it but no place to hook a shift onto this chair. Last thing this chair when it folds up holds wheel and pedal and actually gets very small great to put away in a closed and not take up the whole thing i really like this feature.
Over trying to rig my own set up with a wheel.The assembly was simple and straightforward, and the resulting drive experience with stable wheel and good position greatly improves driving simulators.The folding aspect of the chair is also very handy.
I am VERY happy with this seat. It was so easy to assemble. And it takes up very little room when not in use. I really like that I don't have to remove wheel or pedals when I fold it up to store it after a Racing session. It is also very easy to adjust the seat for when my wife wants play Dirt Rally 2.0. The only minor complaint I have is that the buckles for the arm rests tend to dig into my thighs while racing but a small towel takes care of that.
If you want a real sim rig but you don’t have a ton of room this is your best bet. Feels solid, built well, it’s light weight and it folds up. Bolt on any force feedback wheel and it will totally transform your racing experience. The pedals also attach in a great way, I have the G920 pedals with the super heavy rubber spring so I need about 25-30 lbs of pressure when braking and the rig doesn’t budge.
