What's Hot

Memory Foam Lumbar Pillow - Secretlab's magic with the OMEGA 2018 really shines with the new memory foam lumbar pillow. I know I said it a bunch of times in the review, but this is seriously one of the best things about the new OMEGA 2018 gaming chair. Just as I was typing this review, I was moving the lumbar pillow around as I shifted on the chair, adjusting the pillow to the new position and continuing with the exact level of comfort I had before.


Improved OMEGA 2018 Style - The small but very visible changes in style on the OMEGA 2018 gaming chair are welcomed, as is the blue/black theme. Secretlab pulls out all of the stops in the design department, and it pays off. We can't have a super-comfortable chair if it doesn't look great, too... right?! There's no need for tacky RGB LEDs here, as Secretlab is forming itself as the Tesla of gaming chairs.

Wider Armrests - Seriously, the wider armrests are awesome. The little Secretlab logo on them is a nice touch, too.

Hours of Use: Still Comfortable - I sat in the chair for around 50 hours for this review, and my body is thankful for every single minute. Those many-hours-long PUBG sessions can be tiring, but not on the Secretlab OMEGA 2018 gaming chair. Again, dat memory foam, yo.

For The Serious Gamers - The same rules apply for serious gamers/Twitch streamers, etc. - they will get a lot of life out of the OMEGA 2018. Secretlab has crafted the most comfortable gaming chair of all time with the OMEGA 2018, and it really comes into play when you're sitting down for countless hours gaming and/or working.

What's Not

Nothing! Secretlab has crafted one of the most amazing gaming chairs I've ever used. The new OMEGA 2018 is my go-to favorite gaming chair now, by far.

Final Thoughts

The gaming chair market is something that, especially once you've reviewed a bunch of different ones, you think is 'all the same' but it's really not. You've got companies like Secretlab who spend all of their time and R&D into making the very best gaming chairs in the world, and this is how you end up with the OMEGA 2018.


Secretlab already had the gaming chair market in its hands with the TITAN and OMEGA 2016 offerings, but holy hell does the new OMEGA 2018 have some nice upgrades. From the very start, the packaging is great; there's a super-informative manual and how-to guide on making the OMEGA 2018 right out of the box. From there, the installation is simply - 15-20 minutes for most people, and then you're sitting down in the uber-comfortable OMEGA 2018 gaming chair.
