This product is true to its name, perfect for big and tall guys. There is metal where it is needed, at the joints and support. Only place where there is plastic is at the size joints for the arms, head rest, and back support. Don't really see this as a issue. All my major malfunctions happened at the joints. Like any attach arms would break where the back rest and seat meet. Then on my last chair, it had hard plastic connecting the back rest with the seat and that fully broke off. This chair has metal everywhere pressure would be on it. For the price, I am hopeing it will last for approx. 5 years.
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect, big and tall.

This is the third desk chair I have purchased and I am sorry I did not purchase it as my first. It is sturdy, rugged and rolls effortlessly on the carpet. Oh, let me not forget to mention it is comfortable. So much so, I enjoy just sitting on it and reading a book. I would definitely recommend this desk chair.
even after reading other reviews i wasn't sure this chair would hold up to my expectations. i had bought many big and tall desk chairs over the years from office supply stores, big name box stores and warehouse clubs. none of them would hold my weight, and they soon started to fall apart and all within a week the gas cylinders would slowly sink to the floor. Not this chair. heavy plate steel base with welded back support Bracket. a solid base and the gas shock has not moved once in 4 weeks, carpet casters that actually roll on a carpet too.
this chair has more than meet my expectations and passed quite a few of them. i'm 6,4 350lbs i work from home doing phone support for a large computer corp i sit in this chair for 8 hours a day. the only draw back is that the chair dose not recline very far as others have noted. but that still did not stop me from falling asleep in it and feeling like i am sleeping on air. if it reclined any further i would probably never leave my office. i would recommend this to anyone who is actually big and tall as the seat is quite high even at its lowest setting. it might not be comfortable for anyone under 6 feet tall. at 6'4" the neck support is perfect for me at its highest setting.

Received this chair, delivered in large box, about 4' X 2'. Assembly was easy in terms of complexity but a little tough in terms of weight (e.g., when combining the components, the chair is pretty heavy)... The materials seem to be of high quality, the screws and bolts go into pre-drilled or pre-cut holes and line up smoothly.
The chair is comfortable and holds my 290 lbs easily. My only criticism is that it does not go down far enough nor does it recline far enough. There is some adjustment to allow for more but it's still pretty shallow. The chair rolls easily on my heavy carpet, which is better than my old chair.
Overall, I am happy with it but it was a little on the expensive side to have the issues it does. Even so, I would still recommend it to another big/tall guy because it's hard to find high quality and high durability for folks our size.
I can be a little compulsive. I admit it. I spend probably 25 hours researching different chair options. I learned much along the way including great tips on good posture, the proper height of monitors and proper desk posture. I looked at different styles and material properties, weight limits and features like adjustable arms (not just up and down but in toward your body or out. I learned that you can find a chair for nearly any occasion and budget. I learned what the market offers. You can get a chair that's custom built for you for $2,500, if money is no object then this chair may not be for you. For my money this chair offered the best value in the marketplace. As for spending thousands on a chair GREAT, but I'd rather spend my hard earned money on piano lessons for the kids... or gasoline for my TAHOE!
My requirements are that I'm 6'5 and I fluctuate between 270 and 300 pounds so I wanted a chair that would last, but most importantly I wanted a chair that would fit me and give me hours of use each day. The chair had to have some recline capability, with a high back, an adjustable head rest, and two way adjustable arms, and adjustable lumbar support. WELL THIS CHAIR HAS ALL OF THOSE, and looks good too. The best part for me was that I was able to assemble the chair with the supplied tools in 25 minutes myself.
The stuff shipped on time and arrived on time as well. Cannot say enough about my first impressions of Overstock and of Office Star as a company. THIS CHAIR IS A BEAST!
I really like this chair. I'm 6'2" and about 260 lbs and it supports me in solid fashion. I can lean back, put my feet on the desk while I'm on a call and it's rock solid.
It looks very nice- if it was leather it might be more "fashionable" but it fits in any office decor.
It's very functional. I would definitely recommend for bigger adults.
