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.

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).

I play AC. I upgraded from the Thrustmaster T300 and wow, what a difference it makes. Feedback is so well defined that you notice textures on the road you never felt before. I am a bit more fatigued now after driving and fighting the forces of the DD, it takes some time getting used to but its amazing and worth the upgrade if you play a lot. I also use it on NLR wheel stand (non-DD version) with the side mounts. It works but the chassis flexes quite a lot, the TR80 will be my next upgrade.
Blake has been awesome to deal with, he answered all my questions and helped me out quickly when I had some troubleshooting issues.
Such a good wheel
Have been using this for RSS Formula hybrid in AC and dirt rally 2.0. As well as a bit of drifting. It's amazing at everything. Well worth it.
Great communication on my preorder from gamer gear direct really happy with my first purchase from them.
