Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair review: Excellent, and reasonably priced!
Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 is a chair designed to be ergonomic, robust, and with plenty of adjustment options. Although I do play quite a lot on my computer, the truth is that I use it mostly for work rather than play. I needed a chair designed to keep you comfortable for long hours during the day and, because I have some back problems, I also needed a chair that can keep my back straight, in a healthy position. The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair promises a lot and covers all the main elements I was looking for, at a reasonable price. After using it for a couple of weeks, here is what I like and I don't like about it:

This chair is comfortable, robust, and adjustable. The seat is large, the backrest is high, while the armrests, and the cushions can be easily positioned where you like them.

Assembling the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair
The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair comes in a large cardboard box. On one of its sides, there are two large color images: one of them shows you the three different color combinations available for the chair, and the other tells you that you are also getting a free game with your new chair. However, these offers may not be available in all markets, all the time. Trust also printed some information about the specs and features of this gaming chair, directly on the cardboard box.
Open the box and inside you find the parts that make up the chair, a user manual that shows you how to assemble them, all the required screws, nuts and other accessories for putting everything together, and two cushions (one lumbar cushion and one neck cushion).
If you follow the steps shown in the user manual, assembling the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair is relatively easy. I managed to do it all alone, without needing any help from someone else.
For starters, you have to mount the wheels, by pushing them into the wheelbase. Then, you insert the gas lift and its plastic cover, into the wheelbase. This is also done just by pushing them into the wheelbase.
Then, you attach the bottom metal plate of the seat and the two armrests. It's all about using a few screws to put them all in their places. It's also worth noting that you can position the armrests closer to or farther away from the seat, if only by less than an inch.
Next, you attach the backrest to the seat. That is also easily done with the help of a few screws. When that's done, put the chair on top of the gas lift and push it down. Then you can sit on it! :)

Design and specifications
The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair is a good-looking piece of furniture. Its seat and backrest are made of textile material with insertions of artificial leather. The one we have uses black and gray colors, but you can also buy it in black and red, or black and blue, if you prefer those color combinations.
Like most gaming chairs, Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 has a design that resembles racing car seats. That's not only a charming feature for gamers, who tend to appreciate this style, but it's also a design that makes the chair comfortable. Furthermore, as we mentioned, this chair does not use leather for the main areas of the seat and backrest, but textile with high-density foam beneath. That means that you won't sweat easily even if you sit at your computer all day long.
Another detail that you may like is the fact that, besides its ergonomic design, this gaming chair also comes with two cushions. One of them is larger and designed to keep your lumbar back positioned correctly, while the other does the same thing for your cervical spine by keeping your neck in the right position.
The seat has a steel frame, which means that it should be very strong and should withstand even the heaviest gamers out there. :) Furthermore, the seat is mounted on top of a class 4 gas lift that can support a person of up to 330 pounds or 150 kg.
It's also worth noting that each of the five wheels is double and their size is generous, so they should provide the chair with a smooth roll regardless of whether you use it on a laminate or parquet floor, as well as on a carpet. If you are concerned about them scratching your floor, worry not, because the wheels are made of black nylon, which is a robust material and also somewhat elastic.
The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 allows you to adjust both its height, the angle of the backrest, and the height of the armrests. The seat height can be adjusted between 21.45 and 18.5 inches (54.5 and 47 cm), so it has a travel distance of about 3 inches (7.5 cm).
The sitting angle can be adjusted between 155 and 100 degrees, meaning that you can tilt the backrest until it is horizontal. It is not something that most people do, but from time to time that can help you get a little rest after getting through a demanding level in your favorite game. :)
The armrests are covered in plastic material which, although it looks tough, is slightly soft and does not hurt your elbows.
The seat has a depth of 19.7 inches (50 cm) and a width of 18.11 inches (46 cm), and the backrest has a height of 32.7 inches (83 cm). As for the weight, it is 45.2 pounds or 20.5 kg heavy. If you want more details about the technical specifications, visit this website: Trust GXT 707 Resto V2.
The technical specs tell us that the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 should be a robust gaming chair. The materials seem to be sturdy and of good quality, and it offers plenty of adjustment options, which is always a good thing.
Using the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair
One essential feature of any gaming chair is how ergonomic it is. If it is well designed and well built, you should be sitting comfortably on it even for extended hours, during long gaming sessions. I have used the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 chair for almost a month now, and I can testify that this is a very comfortable chair. I feel rested, and my back does not hurt even if I stay at my computer desk all day, which happens fairly often.
There are multiple factors that put together make the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 a great chair. First of all, I'd like to say a few things about the seat and backrest. As you know, they are covered in textile material with some inserts of faux leather on their edges. The textile material feels soft, but inside there is high-density foam. The result is a seat and a backrest that feel not too hard but not too soft either. It is comfortable and it does not make you sweat like real or artificial leather does.
I have some issues with my back, especially with the lower lumbar area. Besides doing some physiotherapy, I did not do much about this health issue. Furthermore, most chairs I have used in the past were rather cheap ones: you know them, those chairs that make your back hurt after just twenty minutes of sitting on them. Unfortunately, in the past, I did not pay attention and I did not consider the chair to be that important. After sitting on the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair for a while, I admit that I was very wrong. A good chair does matter and can alleviate the pain from your back. It can also help with your long-term health, especially when you have a job that involves a lot of sitting in front of a computer.
The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 gaming chair comes with two cushions. There's a large one for the lumbar area and a smaller one for the neck area. You can easily adjust their position on the backrest and move them up or down, as they both use elastic wraps to stay in their place. At first, I thought that the lumbar cushion is too big to feel comfortable, but after I tried it for a few minutes, I understood I was wrong. It was exactly as large as I needed. However, if you do feel that it is too large, you should know that you can use the zipper on its back to get the stuffing out and force-remove some of it (using a cutter or some scissors maybe?).
The neck cushion is the other thing that makes your back stay aligned properly. Although many of the pictures I saw with this chair show the neck cushion positioned with its elastic band going through the two holes from the top of the backrest, when I placed it like that, it did not feel comfortable. That is because I'm about 5.9 feet tall (180 cm) and the neck cushion was too low for me to rest my head on it. If you are my height or taller, you should position the neck pillow higher on the backrest, closer or even on the top of the Trust GXT embroidered logo.
The armrests have soft plastic padding covering them. On other chairs I've used in the past, I often found that my elbows were hurting after a while. That was because they had bad armrests and I could feel them "attacking" my elbow bones. :) The Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 is in another league, in a positive way.
After sitting on the Trust GXT 707 Resto V2 for about a month, playing games and writing every day on my computer, I only have good things to say about this chair. It feels like a robust and reliable chair. It is comfortable and manages to keep my back straight, which is great.
