We do not do a lot of gaming and office chairs reviews here at HardOCP, but what I can tell you is that we do not write about these chairs until we have sat in these every day for a month or two, or three in this case. We have been sitting in the GAMDIAS ACHILLES P1 L Gaming Chair since March 5th, so we think we have a very good handle on this one. As alluded to above, the two standout features of the ACHILLES P1 is that it is has "RGB Customizable Streaming Lighting," and a legrest that slides totally out of the way when not in use. Here is GAMDIAS showing off the RGB features which seems to be its claim to fame at the moment.
For what it is worth, the only ACHILLES P1 model that it is currently selling in the USA is the "L" edition, which stands for Large. Because we are all a bunch of fat overgrown Americans. Finally a chair with me in mind!
We chose the black and white chair for our review and whatever your thoughts on office and gaming chairs, it would hard to say that the ACHILLES P1 is not a good looking specimen when it comes to furniture. From the back it comes across very subtle, until you turn the Frag Harder Disco lights on.
When it comes to fitting some of us bigger guys, the ACHILLES P1 L does deliver in terms of dimensions. However, its weight limited is listed below 225lbs, which may or may not have had an impact on our experience. We came in 20lbs over the limit, which we did explain to GAMDIAS before we got our sample, but they sent it along anyway.
We will touch on more of the dimensions and how those impacted comfort on the conclusion page. Also you can see in the spec picture the ACHILLES P1 in basic black which looks very good as well, if our black and white combination is a bit too much contrast for you.
