The Dark Demon looks amazing, is thickly padded and shows great attention to detail in its design. Expect to feel strapped into perfect ergonomic alignment no matter the task. Tilt upright for work. Use recline varying degrees for reading, watching moves or napping.

Cons

The Dark Demon tries to accommodate as many body sizes as possible. The result is that some features are inconsistent. For example, the bucket seat forces narrow leg width. However, the 3D armrests adjust outwards to to fit wider bodies. You may need time to experiment with the settings before finding your comfort zone.

Sale
Heavy duty big and tall gaming chair
A key differences between the Dark Wizard and Dark Demon are the extra large cushions. Plus, the dimensions are suitable for very tall and very heavy users.

Anda Seat Dark Wizard gaming chair

Pros

  • Super sturdy chair even when supporting 430 pounds.
  •  The neck and back support cushions are more substantial than what most chairs offer.
  • Slick, clean style with extra thick padding.

Cons

  • For a big and tall gaming chair, the seat is surprisingly narrow. If you like to spread your legs in a v-shape while sitting, this model will feel restrictive.
  • This chair is very heavy – you will need two people to put it together.

Who should buy this product

This chair is rated for users only 5’1″ tall. However, only exceptionally heavy or tall users should consider this model.

Considering the lifetime warranty, this is actually a very affordable product. Assuming you use this chair for five years, the price breaks down to around $70 per year, or $5 per month.

Anda Seat Dark Knight

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

This is essentially the same chair as the Dark Wizard. However, it has a smaller price tag but offers superior features. Plus, this model support even taller and heavier users.

Sale
Slightly cheaper big and tall gaming chair
This model is cheaper than the Dark Wizard but boasts 4D adjustable armrests instead of 3D. Also, the Dark Knight supports taller and heavier users than the Dark Wizard. This is curious, since on paper, the Dark Knight is the better chair of the two.

This is one of the only gaming chairs on the market designed to support extra tall sizes.

Dark Knight size chart

  • Armrests: 4D adjustable armrests (up, down; forward backwards; diagonal; right, left).

Pros

  • Very well made – you can feel the quality the moment you sit in this chair
  • One of the few gaming chairs in the world that support users 7 feet tall
  • 4D adjustable armrests offer a wide range of options – finding your sweet spot is fun and easy

Who should buy this product

The Dark Knight is a no-brainer for very tall users. There are few gaming chairs out there that support people 7 feet tall, and none as luxurious as this model.

Conclusion

The seven chairs reviewed in this guide represent the best of the Anda Seat product line. The Dark Demon and the Viper Series rank among the best premium gaming chairs in the world. However, there are better options for smaller and heavyweight users.

The problem with Anda Seat’s big and tall line of chairs is that the seat is too narrow for large or heavy users. That’s why none rank among our list of best gaming chairs for 400+ pound heavyweights.

For smaller users, Anda products are a decent choice. However, none rank among our best gaming chairs for small sizes.

That said, Anda offers a diverse range of gaming chairs that will satisfy most users. Expect sleek PVC upholstery, deep recline, amazing comfort and an unparalleled warranty.
