Motion 1 reviews: The gaming chair of champions

September 12, 2023

With the Motion 1 gaming chair having been on the market for a few months now, it’s clear that it’s so much more than just another gaming accessory! The chair—which is crafted by Cooler Master and powered by D-BOX haptic technology—has caught the attention of gamers and tech enthusiasts alike. 


In this blog, we’ll delve into the reviews from reputable sources such as Gamespeak Magazine, Wired, PC Magazine and Dave2D on YouTube to get a comprehensive look at how Motion 1 is revolutionizing the gaming experience all across the world! 

Gamespeak Magazine: The ultimate gaming chair 

Gamespeak Magazine has dubbed Motion 1 a “top contender for gamers seeking an immersive and realistic gaming experience”, and for good reason! Their analysis of the gaming chair is a holistic view that considers not just gameplay but that looks at its specs, the technology of the chair design, its versatility as well as the quality of the haptic feedback. 

In their breakdown of the specs, Gamespeak mentions that Motion 1 is similar in size to a cinema seat but is made with high-quality leather upholstery, ensuring that it will last gamers for years and years of intense gaming sessions. They go on to mention that since Motion 1 offers an adjustable headrest and a lumbar support pillow, users can personalize their chair to be as comfortable as possible! 

Later in their review, Gamespeak highlights an aspect of Motion 1 that often goes overlooked—its ability to function perfectly as a racing simulator, a flight simulator, a gaming chair or as an office chair. Motion 1 can seamlessly fit into any setup and is designed to take any entertainment experience to new heights, making it the ultimate choice for gamers looking to immerse themselves into their games! 

Finally, Gamespeak dives into the haptic feedback of the chair, calling it so immersive that “you’ll feel every turn, twist, and crash as if you were really there.” The review also applauds the ability to create different haptic profiles that can be shared with others, making Motion 1 the perfect gaming chair for those who are looking to customize their experience instead of a one-size-fits-all design. 

Wired Magazine: Thrilling and immersive 

Wired Magazine opens their review of Motion 1 by stating that “gamers seeking a jolt of adrenaline will find it here,” and that’s exactly what Cooler Master and D-BOX have set out to do! 

Their review process begins when they take the chair out of the box, noting that it’s easy to assemble with only 3 pieces that need to be put together. They also back up what Gamespeak had to say about the comfort and adjustability of the chair itself, saying that the foam base is quite comfortable for long gaming sessions! 

Simon Hill, the author of the review, said he spent most of his time playing Forza Horizon 5 on Motion 1, calling it “the type of gaming Motion 1 was made for.” 

You lean into the curves, feel the rumble of bumpy terrain, and brace for the rush of acceleration. You are also buffeted and jolted by every collision and crash. It’s thrilling, and it gets your adrenaline pumping.

Wired also gives D-BOX’s content versatility a shoutout, explaining how not only are you able to be further immersed in your games, but that users also have access to D-BOX’s catalogue of more than 2,500 hand-coded movies, tv shows and more! For content that has not been coded by D-BOX, Wired mentions that users can use the Adaptive Gaming and Adaptive Audio Modes, allowing Motion 1 to immerse you in any type of entertainment with haptic feedback. 

Overall, Wired gave Motion 1 a 7/10 rating, noting that the haptic feedback of the chair has the ability to recreate the nostalgic feeling you had when you played moving coin-operated games at the arcade as a child!

PC Magazine: Halfway between a gaming chair and a sim racing cockpit 

Just like the other two magazine reviews, PC Magazine immediately notices the comfort and durability of Motion 1, calling it “very sturdy and well made.”  

PC Magazine also appreciated the approximately 45 Adaptive Gaming Mode profiles that were made by D-BOX haptic engineers for some of the biggest games out there, including Fortnite, Doom Eternal and others. These profiles allow users to be more immersed into their favourite games with realistic haptic feedback—regardless of whether or not they’ve been coded by D-BOX—since they pre-associate the appropriate movements, vibrations and textures to in-game actions controlled by your mouse, keyboard or controller.  

They were also impressed with the chair’s ability to act as a race car cockpit, noting that the added realism from the haptics is quite impressive. 

The chair rumbled with impressive detail as I drove around in the game, vibrating gently on rough dirt and shuddering when my car would hit anything or land after a jump. With both left and right vibration motors, I even got a sense of rocks or curbs making my left or right wheels jump slightly.

Dave2D: Motion 1 is really different 

Dave2D on YouTube took a fun approach to reviewing Motion 1—he assembled it and refused to try it until his camera was recording! 

The authenticity of his emotions and initial reactions to the chair are impossible to deny, and you just have to watch his video review to see just how much Motion 1 can enhance the immersion and fun of the gaming experience. 


Motion 1: Not just any gaming chair

The reviews of Motion 1 leave no room for doubt—this chair is the chair that will take your gaming experience to the next level.  

With its realistic haptic feedback, customizable features and ergonomic design, Motion 1 isn’t just a gaming chair; it’s a game-changer. Whether you’re a racing enthusiast, FPS warrior, lover of action games or a mix of them all, Motion 1 is what you need to be fully immersed in your games—making every explosion, turn, and every moment come to life like never before.
