While nearly all of our Linux benchmarking work at Phoronix is automated through the Phoronix Test Suite, it is still grueling and time-intensive work to setup all of the test systems, handle the management of the testing, and of course writing all of the articles and news posts. As a quick break from all of our Linux hardware testing and software benchmarking, the folks at Sumo Lounge asked to send out their Omni Bean Bag Chair. The Sumo Lounge Omni has been reviewed in many computer and gaming magazines as a great piece of furniture for computer gamers and has been featured in other publications like Playboy and Hooters Magazine.
Sumo Lounge was started out in early 2004 as an Internet store and their corporate philosophy is to provide comfort for your leisure time, your shopping experience, and for your wallet. Sumo Lounge does offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on the product for returning the product or rectifying any issues with the product, but it lasts for just one week after receiving the product, which is quite short. Besides the Omni chair that is being reviewed today, Sumo Lounge also has the Otto, Sumo Gamer, Sumo Couple, Sumo Sultan, and Sumo Gigantor.
The Omni is Sumo's most affordable product while the Otto is their smallest product and the Sumo Gigantor is their largest. The prices on these bean bag products range from $75 to $400 USD.
Our Sumo Omni review sample arrived in a very large cardboard box. The box is rather large, but considering the Omni is just filled with polystyrene beans, it is actually quite light. Inside the Omni chair was just resting within a plastic bag.
