Pros: I've only been sitting in this chair for a few hours but I think it's going to be the start of a long and very happy relationship.
I was on the fence between the Iron series and the Performance series because I am an average sized guy. 5'6 or so, 165 lbs or so. While I really like a "fitted" bucket seat like my car that the performance series is known for, I was willing to pull the trigger on the Iron series chair because it has a leg rest and is suppose to be firmer than the Performance series - both which were very important to me.
I did this despite the fact the two DXRacer representatives kindly worked with me and came to the conclusion Performance was probably going to be a better match for me despite not having having a leg rest. Most of my reservations and worries after ordering about a person of my size with this Iron series chair were gone once it was all set up. Afterall, it's only an inch higher and wider than the performance series. I do not feel like I am swimming in the chair, it doesn't feel too big. As I expected and compromised on, It doesn't feel super buckety or fitted like I had hoped but my last computer chair wasn't so it isn't the end of the world. The Performance line likely has the upper hand here.
The seat is plenty firm, and because it is intended for a larger heavier person I bet I will see many years of it staying that way. While I haven't given the leg rest an honest try, it would be nice to see it as an option on other chairs so that folks like me don't feel funneled into only one option. I'm looking forward to extending it and really kicking back and listening to music on my headphones.
Cons: One star is taken off because the lower side wings, the love handle support I jokingly call it, are not symmetrical. One physically larger and or juts out further. Looking at the chair head on or to the side it is a little off putting to someone like me with a high attention to detail. A small piece of that star is also removed because the head pillow, while appreciated and a useful addition, does not mount to the chair well and slides around. It would be nice to see both the lumbar pillow and headrest pillow be able to firmly attach via a toggle or something - this is a complaint across the DXRacer lines though so I am sure they are aware of it. It would also be nice to see a clearer naming scheme than the one currently offered - while the "lines" of chairs is helpful to some degree in distinguishing the characteristics of each one those characteristics are not plainly stated in a visible place- and the options within those lines are named in the super obscure fashion that this chair is, for example OH/IS133/N/FT.

Pros: Incredible panel. Accurate colors, insane amount of space, with a high pixel density. The best photo editing experience yet.
Cons: I sent back my first one because of the disgusting amount of lightbleed in all four corners. Completely distracting during dark movie or game scenes.
Come to find out, it's not a defect - the second panel had the same amount of lightbleed.
For a "professional" monitor that comes with this price tag this is absolutely inexcusable.
Pros: Somewhat close shave, for a electric razor. Convenient base station for cleaning, charging, and drying.
Cons: Purchasing new detergent every 3 months.
Other Thoughts: Still worth it. Very nice.READ FULL REVIEW
