Custom gaming chair

The PC and monitors all sit in the IWR1 IMPERATORWORKS gaming chair. This chair uses a luxurious leather chair with a comfortable texture and it even includes a massage function. The IWR1 automatically opens/closes by pressing only one switch, making it quick and easy to jumpo into a gaming session. Electrical motors enable the gaming chair to recline to a 0 gravity posture (128 degree). Imperatorworks also includes two options for mounting displays: single monitor (up to 49″) or triple monitors (up to 32″).

Pros of the IWR1 Imperatorworks

This chair is a gamer’s dream. The leather of the seat is soft and smooth, it feels as a any high end leather chair. The IWR1 that Unbox Therapy uses for his gaming pc setup is a piece of art, its beautiful. The combination between the LED lights, smokey mirrors on the base and sleek lines makes the IWR1 feel almost like jewelry. This is more than just a “computer chair”.

Build quality is superb: heavy duty is an understatement. But this was expected, given the 3800$ price tag.

Assembly was easier than expected as there are plenty of tutorials online. Keep in mind that you need two people to assemble it.

Cons of the IWR1 Imperatorworks

The packaging for this gaming chair is huge and its combined weight is about 750lbs. 5 men or even more are needed just to move the box. Imperatorworks includes 3 Display Por cables with the IWR1 but 2 of them didn’t work.

Unbox Therapy Gaming Setup Monitor

Lew pairs his gaming chair with the LG 43UD79-B. This panel is a 43 inch UHD 4K IPS monitor, perfect for gaming and productivity. LG includes 4x HDMI inputs, USB Type C and HDCP 2.2 compatibility. The 4 HDMI ports allows the user to simultaneously see 4 different inputs at the same time using LG’s Screen Split functionality. The 43UD79-B also includes 10W speakers with rich bass and can cover sounds below 85Hz.

Keep in mind that this monitor is HUGE. It looks amazing but its HUGE. This monitor was not made for precision design/graphic/motion picture/photography/etc. work. However, it can function perfectly fine in this role if you need to.
