I needed a new office chair and since I am quite health conscious, I thought this would be a great addition. It does keep me moving, because it's impossible to sit completely still. Also I am quite pleased that I have a back up chair. This chair should not be used for more than about 3 hours - so it's not the kind of chair you can work from all day long (maybe that's a good thing). It's a challenge and time will tell if it will be replaced by something more user friendly.
Quality is good for the price. It was difficult to put together by myself, but not impossible. I also found it creaky after a few days, so I tightened all the bolts and lubricated the joints. Not sure which one did it, but problem solved. Definitely the most comfortable chair I have found for about ***, and there is really no risk of the padding compressing (because its a ball)
Also it encourages good posture, and my neck feels better after hours of reading or sitting at my computer.

I hated this chair. It is not a good design. When it had enough air in it to match the photo it was hard as a rock & made my bottom go numb. When it had less air in it is mashed into the frame and was not comfortable either. Do not waste your money!

This chair is really pretty decent. I am 5'4" and I found the height to be right on. Putting together the frame is not too, too hard, but it's still sort of a pain. The ball is small and fits well into the frame. It does tend to lose some air and has to be refilled. The wheels the chair rolls on move well. Overall, I am pleased with the quality for the cost. I have not had any real challenges sitting on the ball as a seat, though I do notice some residual muscle soreness on my obliques. That is a good thing right? I would recommend this for those who have seen the balance ball chair and want to give it a go.

I use this chair all the time in my craft room. I can roll from machine to machine without my hips hurting as they do when I sit in my regular chair on wheels. I chose this chair because of the metal frame. I did not have any problems putting it together! Great for people with knee and hip problems!
