Designed to make long hours of sitting comfortable, the Razer Enki X achieves that with a wider seat base and cool faux leather surface. I've been using the chair for at least two weeks. It does a good job of supporting your back, and the wide space makes it easy to play games cross-legged, too.

The Enki X is the cheaper version of the Enki, and is missing some features. For one, it doesn't have tilt mechanism, only has 2D armrests, and doesn't come with a head cushion. Everything else, including built-in lumbar support, is there. I do want to point out it's not the lumbar support of the Iskur. I'm fine with the 2D armrests, which only goes up and down, but the lack of tilt makes it uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong, if I'm sitting upright all the time, this chair is great. However, I like to tilt back to focus, and the Enki X doesn't do that.
You can still lean back up to 152 degrees, though. The chair's cool faux leather design keeps you somewhat cool, though really only in air-conditioned rooms. It will still feel slightly cool, but beware, sweat can degrade the performance of the leather. Do remember to give it a good wipe after an intense gaming session. I do like the patterned fabric that covers the back and the seat base, and makes it stand out.
Setting up the Enki X is easy, Razer has made it simple, and if you've not done it before, there's a large picture guide to help you out. It also comes with a pair of gloves to help protect your hands from accidental injuries. It's great to have, but you don't need to use it. I've assembled plenty of chairs, and the Enki X is no different.
Retailing at S$599, the Razer Enki X is a tad more expensive than the competition, such as the Secretlab Titan Evo 2022. It also has less features, too. But it does have a wider seat base, which may be just what you need to feel comfort. I did like seating in the Enki X, but I recommend going for the Enki — the tilt is something I feel you should have in a chair. Especially if you want to sit in even more comfort. Get it from Razer's online store.
