I'm impressed. This is a great chair. I have had consistent back pain for the past year but since using this chair for a month, back pain is gone. I'm 5'3" and the chair seemed a bit big for me at first but since you can adjust it 7 different ways, it easily adjusted to fit me perfectly. Compared to the prices of chairs designed specifically for smaller people, the pros outweigh the cons with this one. Every time I sit down I have instant comfort. It seems very sturdy and feels like it will last a lifetime. The seat and back padding is amazingly...thick. The classic design and high back offer a comfortable, conservative solution to my home office. I would purchase this one again for sure. I enjoy assembling things but the assembly was a bit difficult. The instructions were not complete for the final stage of assembly and primarily were based from a picture. The difficult part for me was connecting the back to the base. A picture shows you where to put it but nothing more. Pay attention to the directional imprint on the steel frame (which is hard to see if you don't know to look for it) and get a second person to help lift and hold the two parts. I called the manufacturing company but never received a call back and ended up figuring it out after a while. After all that, it was still well worth it.
I was a bit concerned about buying a chair online without sitting in it first, but this chair is fabulous. It was fairly easy to set up and is really comfortable. There are so many ways to adjust the chair so it fits you perfect. The chair is very heavy duty. We purchased this for our home office but I am going to strongly recommend that we purchase these for the company I work for. The chairs at work are not very comfortable, but this one really is.
Most of the attributes are fine, but there's one problem that kind of ruins it for me. The back tilts forward to a 60 degree angle, but only tilts back to a 90 or 100 degree angle, which is nowhere near far enough. It's constantly pushing my back forward, so I have to angle the seat to lessen that effect, but then the seat pushes up into my thighs too much. It seems like there's something wrong there; I would expect it to tilt backwards, not forwards, but I've triple-checked the assembly/adjustment instructions (which are fairly sparse), but can't think of anything I'm doing wrong. I guess it could be a defect but, of course, there's no contact information for the manufacturer to call them and ask. I've spent a couple weeks adjusting it based on reputable ergonomic guides -- e.g., height adjusted so feet are flat on the floor, seat back enough so that a closed fist can fit between the front of the seat and the back of your legs, etc -- and can't seem to get it to a comfortable position. I've got pain in my neck, shoulders and thighs after sitting in it for 30 minutes. I was very hesitant about buying a chair online without being able to sit in it first, but I couldn't find any chairs in local stores that had the number of adjustments that this one did. I'm going to try to keep adjusting the chair in hopes that I can make it comfortable, but right now I'm pretty disappointed. It seems like I just spent *** on a chair that doesn't work for me. Overstock's return policy only allows returns when things are defective, so I can't even return it and get another chair.

I must confess, the reason i purchased this chair was the many positive reviews. I must also say that i was dissapointed in the chair the first time i sat in it. The chair came promptly, the assembly was preaty straight forward. But, the chair is not as comfortable as i expected based on the reviews i read. Ihe following is what i feel about the cahir: The back is flimsy, by that i mean that if i move my back left or right, i can feel the whole back move with me. Also, the arm rests are about as bad as can be. The arm restsare hollowed out in the middle. This creates a straight line that your amrs must lay in. This creates pressur points on my arms and i find them aching in short order. My final complaint is the support by the bach of the chair. There is a feature that allows you to slide the back away from the bottom of the chair, but nothing to allow you to slide it closer. This being said, i get pain in my lower back from theis chair. On the good side, there are many controls that let you adjust many things. Bottom line...i will NEVER buy a chair again that i cannot sit in first before buying.
This chair is great. I cannot recommend it enough; basically a high-quality, ergonomic at an actual decent price. Ergonomic chairs are traditionally very expensive. It was nice to find a chair that was a bit cheaper without sacrificing the quality.
This is a very good chair, I am a student at a engineering school and thus spend much time studying, so I appreciate its utility for long-term sitting. I did have some difficulty with assembly, as the included allen wrenches are not the best and don't fit well into some of the spaces. Overall, I have found it comfortable, good-looking, and well-designed.
This is a wonderful chair, and I can say that it was one of the best purchases I've made. It isn't that difficult to assemble, and once it is all together, the settings, to make it "your own," are perfect (seat, back, armrests). I had a straight back chair, so this is 180 degrees better! There is not one feature that cannot be appreciated. I HIGHLY recommend it!
I've got to be honest. This didn't end up being any higher quality than you could get at xxx'x or xxxxxx. I'm 5'2 and it wouldn't adjust down to my size. Unfortunately its too much of a hassle of shipping back after hours of getting it set up and adjusted. Now resides in my basement. It's definitely not as high end as described and definitely not for a short person.
What these chairs lack in style, they make up for in comfort and durability. There are several adjustment features and they can be quite overwhelming, at first. But this chair can literally be used by ANYONE. I am ordering several more for our office.
Never been happier with a chair at this price. Comfortable, highly versatile and the company is at the top of my list.

This is a good chair for the price. All the adjustment devices seem to work and the chair is very comfortable. I only have one complaint and that is, every so often I'd be just sitting there and the chair would pop forward without me touching it. I just had to get a bolt to stick in there and now it's fine.

Chair is okay. Seat is stuck in tilted down position. Should have sent it back but seemed easier to take the *** to keep it. In hindsight, would have returned it to see if a chair that fully functioned was a little more comfortable. Also, I am 5'1" and this chair is too big for me.
Was looking for something for all day use in a small office setting. LOTS of adjustment choices and appears to be pretty sturdy/well built (although I have only owned it a month and a half). Seat and back are VERY comfortable for computer work/desk job! So far, I love it.
What can I say? The chair itself I really like, kooshy and comfy and a good value for the money and nice features, BUT it arrived without 2 critical parts. It took almost a MONTH to receive all the parts! Overstock tried to send the missing part replacements and I got 1 of the correct parts, and 2 incorrect. I tried again, they gave me the wrong tracking number. Finally received the correct part last night and I still may receive another of the correct part after they tracked and reshipped. Wow, Overstock, your customer service folks are nice, but not so effective/efficient.
