There’s just something about a high-quality office chair that makes the day better. With an 8-hour work day primarily in front of a computer, a chair designed for extended comfort makes things more bearable. Considering I’m prone to back pain, I was on the hunt for something more supportive. When Vertagear reached out to us asking if we’d like to try out their PL1000 Pink Hero Edition Gaming Chair, we were more than happy to see what it had to offer.
Vertagear PL1000 Pink Hero Gaming Chair Ease of Assembly
When I walked into the office last week, I was met with a giant box next to my desk, which I could only assume was either my new Vertagear gaming chair or a small car. Luckily for me, it was the former, so I quickly got to work building it.
It ships with all of the components wrapped separately in the box, with clear instructions on how to assemble them all together. First, it has you attach the gas lift bar, then the wheels, and finally, you slide the back support into the seat and screw in a couple of side screws to hold everything in place. It also includes all of the necessary tools and hardware, so you don’t have to run to the garage to construct it. Easy as pie, and it only took me about thirty minutes from unboxing to the full assembly.
Editor’s Note: Not all office and home furniture have instructions that are easy to comprehend. Kudos to you, Vertagear!
Vertagear PL1000 Pink Hero Gaming Chair Adjustability
My first thought upon sitting in this Vertagear gaming chair PL1000 was “how far back does this baby lean?” The answer is a whole lot! The slightly more technical answer is enough to take nap or install a TV on the ceiling. My previous mesh office chair didn’t have any backward lean to it, so this was a welcome change.
The seat also has a lever on the right side that lets you lean the back support backward. Like any good office chair, there’s a handle on the bottom that lets you adjust the seat’s height and swivel, too.
The arms also feature a height adjust, with each one having its own lever. I enjoy my chair arms low enough where I can fit them under my desk comfortably, but high enough that I can still rest my arms on them when I’m not actively working. I’m able to achieve that middle point easily on both sides.
Vertagear PL1000 Pink Hero Gaming Chair Comfort
The Vertagear PL1000 gaming chair features built-in lumbar support, which is something that comes in handy when you’re sitting the majority of the day. The memory foam neck pillow is something that I also find myself using the majority of the time. It’s removable and adjustable, with an elastic band used to hold it in place so you can put it in the most comfortable position.
Vertagear also designed this chair with a wide seat, made of dual-layer hybrid foam. It doesn’t have the most cushioning in the world, but it’s certainly not uncomfortable by any means. In fact, it’s one of the more comfortable office/gaming chairs I’ve used. Plus, the Pink Hero edition helps benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation, so you have the opportunity to help those affected by breast cancer.
There are five 360° rolling casters that make it easy to roll around the office when we have a group discussion for the latest training or whatever happens to be trending in the world of power tools.
In terms of fit, this model is recommended for weights up to 240 pounds and heights up to 6 feet, 2 inches.
Price and Breast Cancer Support
The Vertagear Pink Hero Edition PL1000 gaming chair runs $259.99 direct from Vertagear’s website. Through September 14th, 2022, Vertagear is donating 20% of the retail sales of this model to the Susan G. Komen foundation to support their mission to find a cure for breast cancer.
The Bottom Line
I can definitely see the Vertagear PL1000 holding up for years, and I’m certainly happier about my desk life than I was before. The adjustability and comfort are very welcome and your purchase supports a great cause.
