This is a great chair. I ordered 8 for my new office. We have all shapes and sizes of people including very short and very "hefty". Also one person has back problems. EVERYONE loves this chair. We sit in these chairs 8 hrs a day and have used them now for over 8 months. It was a great buy for us.
How accurate was the sizing? Very
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
After about a week of constant online research and comparison, I made this purchase. I wanted a mesh chair specifically, but not an expensive one. That being said, I also wanted one that had high reviews (and not just one or two reviewers). It was a little challenging to put together since the instructions were only pictures, but even still it took only about 45 min to put together. I am especially pleased at how customizable the chair is. You can mount both the back and the arms at different widths and heights to get a truly unique fit. The seat also feels like one of those gel bicycle seats. Very comfortable!!
Did the product fit true to size? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Very good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
Overall the chair is just barely satisfactory. It's not terrible, but it's not really all that good either. The biggest issue that I have with this chair is the width of the arm rests. I am male 5'8" 150lbs, and while sitting in this chair, with the most narrow setting for the armrests, my arms are spread out like chicken wings because the armrests lay a few inches wider than a normal resting position. This is quite the shame because the armrests themselves are actually grooved to better fit your arms, but I just can't comfortably reach them. Having to type and mouse around on a computer for hours on end makes the armrests on this chair more of a nuisance than anything else.
I am satisfied with everything else; the rest of it is pretty standard fare. The cushioning and the backrest are just "okay". I was expecting a chair that would fit the grooves of your butt and back a little more, and even though you can lean back and recline a little bit (depending on how much you loosen or tighten the knob), it is still a bit on the stiff side.
In the end I would not recommend this chair to anyone unless you are around 5'11"-6ft tall-ish, or have a wider build. If I could still, I would return it, and save my money for something better.
A ++. After carefully reading all the reviews from this site and on the Internet I took a leap of faith and purchase this chair. Putting the chair together was a snap and was very easy. After using the chair for about two weeks I see why all users were very happy with the chair. The chair is very comfortable, very user-friendly, supports your lower back and upper back perfectly. For the price range this is by far the best chair on the market. I would highly recommend anyone from purchasing this chair.
How accurate was the sizing? perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Much better than what I had expected.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I'm only 5' tall. The seat of the chair was extremely comfortable and cushy, but so deep that I could only sit on the front half of the chair, and not benefit from the lumbar support, which was the reason I purchased it chair. Sadly, I'm sending it back.
How accurate was the sizing? I didn't check.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality seemed good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I researched extensively. I am a large person and wanted something sturdy, adjustable, with all the bells and whistles at a reasonable price!!! The arms can be adjusted out/in up/down and fit me! The mesh has just enough give to help it confirm and fit my back. Also, I live in Texas and get warm easily. The mesh is SO MUCH BETTER for that than leather!!! The seat is comfortable and amble. The gentleman who does maintenance and puts things together for our organization asked me about it. Said it's the best chair he's seen in years! SAID THE BASE IS METAL and you just don't find that anymore. I look forward to using this chair until retirement (again)!!
The chair is very easy to build with little to no effort needed. The instruction can be a little overwhelming if you have difficulty understanding multiple steps in one window. The quality of the chair is very good for this price point. So far so good as we have had these chairs in an office setting for a few weeks now.

I noticed the note about ANSI/BIFMA standards, but when I researched it, I couldn't get clear on the use of flame retardant chemicals. Are there any in this chair?karonic on Feb 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello karonic, Yes this chair has been treated with flame retardant chemicals, and meets all the following regulations Cal 133 cal 116, 117, and CA Prop 65 regulation which states "This product contains chemicals which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Thank you for shopping with us.

Just so you know flame retardant does not mean fire-proof or non-flammable. It is somewhat treated. If your welding near it and sparks are flying directly on it, that is still not enough for it to catch fire.ontenone on Mar 26, 2014

Thank you for you inquiry regarding the Ergo Value Mesh Medium Back Task Chair. Sitting improperly for long hours places strain on the spine and legs, which can cause pain. Ergonomic chairs are designed to minimize strain and prevent pain and other health problems associated with poor sitting posture. So if the chair is set up correctly, you should have no problems sitting in it for 8 hours or more. I hope this answer helps. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 21, 2013

I'm a little confused. People are replacing the soft casters for use on hardwood floors. However one response states the soft casters are especially made not to scratch the finish on the wood. Will these caster damage hardwood floors?miwi7588 on Mar 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. Other customers are getting the soft casters because they are great for hard wood floors to prevent scratching. I hope this helps you. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 19, 2013

The reclining function of this chair has stopped working for me. It was working for about a week and then it tightened up and I can't lean back anymore. How do I fix this?sevenbridges on Jan 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This was probably the first thing you tried, but just to be sure... The lever on the right that adjusts the height also controls the reclining. If you slide it inwards, it locks the back. Pull it out to let the back recline. It won't slide if there is weight on the back, so be sure you lean forward while adjusting. 'I hope that's it. In general, we've been very pleased with these chairs. Got 8 for the office, and they're comfortable, are holding up well, and provide good back support. (Tip - when you assemble the seat, you can adjust how far back the backrest is positioned relative to the seat. For best back support, move the backrest as far forward as it'll go.geberstadt on Jan 18, 2013

If you have to adjust the seat every time you sit down, then incorrect assembly could be the problem. The vendor does not provide information about the purpose of the knob/spring underneath the seat.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 29, 2012

I just purchased and assembled this chair, and whenever I sit down on it, I hear a sort of sliding sound, quickly followed by a muffled popping sound, like air escaping, and the base of the seat lowers by about an inch or so. When I get up, I hear a similar "popping" sound as well. Is this normal, and if not, is there anything I can do to resolve this issue? Thanks for your time. on Aug 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
My chair does not make this noise. I would check the assembly. I have had my chair for quite a while. It gets quite a bit of use and it still does not make this sound.happyinmt49 on Apr 7, 2013
