    That desk would make a great "working from home" upgrade!

    Cant beat my computer table, though it is not fresh looking like that, but mine are a lot bigger.
    Still would have loved a stab at that chair as i think that would be a upgrade to the cheap office chair i have.
    BUT ! i am outside the participant sphere so will just have to look from the sideline.

    Re: Day 22: Win a Cougar gaming chair and desk

    Is that built in RGB for the table? Have to admit they've done the "gaming" element "well" with the RGB, carbon fibre and desktop ports/hub as opposed to just sticking the name "gaming" on it without adding anything.

    Not sure what to think of it though but overall I think it would be nice to win this and use it but probably more for the bedroom than an "WFH office" desk. Wonder if the audio ports are any good or if they are just a passthrough.

    It really wouldn't, unless you just like to look at it and not sit in it.

    my idiot neighbour got himself a gaming chair for xmas- has a potato pc he struggles to game on but would rather spend money on this malarkey than better components..

    for the record i use a cheapo operator`s chair i got secondhand from the local junk shop years ago and it`s perfectly good for long sessions of gaming so i`m with virtuo on this one

    Re: Day 22: Win a Cougar gaming chair and desk

    Yeah there are good and bad in everything, and to be honest it is probably cheaper buying a good office chair VS a good gaming chair.
    In late 90ties and early 00 i had a very nice office chair i got for free, it followed me thru hundreds if not thousand of hours of gaming, with gaming sessions lasting up to 8 hours a day, and thats not factoring all the regular stuff and my past time gig as a tech writer on a local site similar to hexus.

    But in the end the seat just fell apart from all that ass time and today i would need a seat to be even more sturdy as i am 40 - 50 Kg heavier now.

    When playing C&C and red alert at a friends place before i got online myself, he had a reclining arm chair with the mouse pad mounted on the arm rest, and then the keyboard you had in the lap.
    That was actually pretty relaxed gaming even if the 17" CRT screen was a bit far away, but not a problem back then with young eyes.
    And i have also contemplated making something like that and then migrate to a large wall mounted screen ( TV ) i might do that when i get a apartment in a place i actually want to live.

    Mmm. Nice prize.

    I think my current computer desk was saved from a work skip about 25 years ago...
