Respawn RSP-110 Review (an honest review)

The Respawn RSP-110 is one of the top-selling gaming chairs on the internet. The popularity of RSP 110 is arguably the largest in North America. Its plush look, integrated footrest, its reasonable price and thousands of 5-star reviews online are very appealing to buyers.

One feature the RSP-110 has that most gaming chairs don’t is in where the armrests adjust with the chair when it reclines. The backseat reclines pretty far back (130 degrees) which on top of computer gaming, is also good for lounging around the living room. It comes with an integrated footrest which is held together by 2 metal poles. Surprisingly, the retractable footrest is sturdy even when both legs are resting on it. When the footrest is deployed while the backseat is reclined, the chair becomes a comfortable seat to watch a movie or to binge a TV show.

The chair’s mechanism has a couple of features. The tilt and recliner options are on one lever with the other controls the height of the seat.  As a 7-year old gaming chair retailer, we often get asked how to use the mechanism under the seat, at live events and expos. When we talk about the Respawn RSP-110, the question is not asked as often as the other gaming chairs since it's pretty self-explanatory and intuitive, compared to other gaming chairs.

The smooth wheels are also a great addition to the chair. They are not the largest casters you can find on a gaming chair, but considering the size of the chair and how smooth the wheels are, having bigger wheels wouldn't make a major difference. These wheels can easily roll on carpet too!

The warranty on the chair is also something to keep in mind. We often get asked why some gaming chairs are so similar visually, but there is a big price gap between them. In most cases, the answer is simple: Quality.

Cheaper chairs tend to use lower quality parts, and it's often reflected in the warranty provided. Lower priced chairs usually come with a 30 to 90-day warranty when better quality gaming chairs come with 2 years or more. In this case, the RSP-110 has a 2-year warranty on parts and frame. Since we are an authorized dealer, we process all warranty claims ourselves and usually replacement parts are shipped within 24h.

Summary

Overall, the chair is a great buy considering the price. It is one of the coolest looking gaming chairs you could get. When compared to higher-end gaming chairs, it's normal that the RSP-110 won't be able to compete. However, when compared to other gaming chairs in the same price range, it's nearly impossible to get a chair with over 5,000 reviews on Amazon, with a 2-year warranty and still priced below $399.
