I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Balt chair. I looked at all the top ergonomic brands at various stores around my city before purchasing it.
I have had two back surgeries so it was important to find a comfortable, supportive chair to use at my computer. My husband wanted me to get the name brand chair he has at his office, but I was not interested in spending well over $600.
When the chair arrived, I was surprised at the weight of the materials. Everything is very well made. It is easy to put together, and only requires about six steps. Everything lines up just as it should. There is a sturdy 5-armed, chrome-plated, spider base, with casters that roll easily. In my opinion, it is as solid and well-made as any of the other ergonomic chairs I looked at for two or even three times the price.
The only other comment I would make is that the chair is large....not that it takes up lots of space, but the seat is on the large side. I think a petite person might find it more chair than he/she wants. Everything is adjustable, except for the dimensions of the seat...so you might find the arms too far out if you yourself do not have a "wide" body.
All in all, I think it is a very good price for a well-made, adjustable, ergonomic office chair.
For a chair in your office, this may be a great chair. For a chair in your home office, however, I found it to be too stiff. Not only is the fabric backing not very forgiving, but the chair forces a much more upright posture. When I'm in my home office, I like to be a little more comfortable and slouch a bit more, and this is not the chair for that.
I've been using this chair for about a month now and I love it. I'm 5ft 10in and this chair fits me perfectly. It supports my body in an upright position all day at work. I have some lumbar disc issues and this chair is definitely comfortable for me. No more slumping forward over my pc in tiny mid-back chairs. The headrest is also a nice touch. There are several places to make adjustments including each arm, seat height, head rest height, seat tilt, and level of lumbar support. I also like that the mesh allows your back to breath so no more sweaty backs or sitting on a cold seat because of the weather.
The cons are, well, I don't think this is the sturdiest chair around but to get that you'd probably have to look in the $1000 price range. Also, because of my disc issues, the highest level of lumber support could have been higher for me.
This chair has serious construction issues.
The back support started to slip down then completely failed to keep vertical position. When I unscrewed it, it was held by tiny metal spring rubbing against plastic, no wonder it failed.
The whole chair back is bolted with two screws to the seat. The problem is that the plastic at the point of contact starts to come apart soon and the backrest starts to wobble then falls off.
Summary: not worth the price, will last maybe a year.
OUTSTANDING, no other way to describe this chair. I am completely satisfied with the product. I looked at local stores and sat in several office chairs, but did not like the posture contour of these chairs. I decided to spend my money at Overstock after much research on the internet and try this chair. WOW, no question, best money I have spent in a long time. The reviews from other buyers is confirmed. I spend many hours at the computer, I am a college professor. After many hours working on homework documents and lesson plans this is still a very comfortable chair. This chair has many good adjustments to custom tailor the seat and lumbar support to your liking. The attached headrest is just the icing on the chair so to speak. Nice to lean back and feel the full support of the chair ergo support cradling you in it grasp. If you need a good back saving chair, this is the one to buy. Thanks Overstock, great product.
At least one reviewer mentioned this was better for a taller person. I am 5'4 and have to agree. I could never get comfortable in the chair. I gave it to my taller brother and he has really enjoyed it. He is not quite 6'.
We were looking for ergonomic, comfortable and attractive executive chairs for our new office. It appears everyone is enjoying these chairs. They provide a contemporary look to our new office and the executives who are using them enjoy sitting in them and indicate they are comfortable as well as have many options for comfort.
The best part is that these chairs were within our budgeted range and we couldn't be happier.
The chair has been weight tested to support up to 300 pounds. If a higher weight capacity chair is required, the Titan chair(Item #: 13870822) has been weight tested to support up to 500 pounds. overstockcustomercare1 on May 31, 2012
