    It could very well be the same model as the one you described. But, it's made exactly like the one I just replaced it with and that one lasted me about 8 years. The main reason I got the new one is that the arm rest padding and the front of the seat padding was getting pretty well worn out. And, that one also wasn't quite as high back as this one.

    But, the bolts on this one have a "built-in" washer head and they each serve as a guide going into the recessed area ....which is exactly the same size as the washer part of the bolt.

    We'll see how it goes...but, so far, I know I'm not that hard on a chair even though I do spend a lot of time in one.

    As much as I dislike what happened to the NFS series when Criterion took over and turned them into Burnout Paradise, I like the original Burnout Paradise. I had the PC version but it is incomplete as certain DLC (surf island, cops and robbers) were never released for the PC. PLUS, no requirement for steam or origin so that is a huge plus.

    That's a pretty common design. Mine hasn't tried to kill me and it was a lot cheaper than $90. Enjoy it, Dyre. :)

    I had a lot of fun with Burnout Paradise on the PC. But, I came in quite late and could only play the "vanilla" version with no DLC.

    Well, the best DLC is on the console versions so if you want to play them (I hear the surf island expansion and the cops vs robbers feature are awesome) you might want to consider getting it too.
    I just hope I remember how to turn off that annoying DJ.

    While my now ex keyboard still worked, the Enter key kept getting stuck, not often, but often enough for me to not feel comfortable.
    So, here is my new keyboard.
    So far it's good.
    There was a funny conversation between me and the person working at the store, but I will leave it for another thread.

    I needed a third mouse (which works 100%) and while looking online I found the WoT version of the Deathadder and the goliath mousepad. I wanted to get it before I got my MadCatz MMO TE, but I couldn't find it anywhere here. I immediately ordered them and they arrived today.
    The mouse pad looks good, don't know if it is good, at least the code for the 500 gold and 3 prem days on WoT works.
    The mouse (the code doesn't work) has a strange (to me) surface, slippery but also slightly textured. The sides of the mouse are thankfully not slippery at all. That is an issue I have with the MMO TE, too damn slippery all around. It's too soon to say if I like the Deathadder or not. It's definitely more comfortable to my hand, as it is slightly larger. If it was 1-2cm wider it would have been perfect, but it is not. Will see. Anyway, I got it very cheap since it was also on sale so I am ok with that. What was funny and I can't say I am shocked about it, was the installation procedure. First Windows discovered the mouse and after few seconds a Razer installation window appeared. Which before completion lead to a BSOD. After the restarted I downloaded manually the software package from Razer. Installed fine though it did REQUIRE to have an account created, which is BULLSHIT. When it finished it checked for updates, even though I just downloaded the package. AND found some which proceeded to install....and then ask for a restart of Windows....FFS! 2015 and still can't install software without requiring reboot of windows?

    The controller I got for my gaming PC. I wish SONY would get off their ass and make it easy to use a DS4 (or even DS3) on PC, but I guess they are in such a great financial situation they just don't want the money from PC gamers.
