As others have mentioned in online reviews, the seat cushion angle is not ideal - it is a little flatter than what one expects on a knee chair. However, I haven't found this to be a problem for myself, yet. Also, as others have noticed, the height is a little low. This also isn't a problem for myself at 5'8". But, anyone taller than myself may have issues. Be sure to read the reviews on Google Shopping instead of relying entirely on the Overstock.com reviews.
While the deficiencies are acceptable to me given the price I paid, I can't help but wonder whether I should have applied the funds to something more costly - even a HÅG Capisco or a Swopper.
I could recommend this chair as long as the recipient of that recommendation recognized the caveats I've detailed above.
The assembly was easy. One thing to note is that the instructions identified two small screws and two medium screws (in addition to the obvious two large screws). In actuality, there are four small screws and two large screws. There is no distinction of a small and medium screw among those screws provided.
Decades ago I tried an office mate's $250 "kneeling chair" and have wanted one ever since but refused to pay so much. About that time, a friend bought a no-frills model for ***; I tried it and unfortunately broke it. Recently I bought one in between (and a rocker) at a thrift shop for ***, but my shins ache when on it for a half hour. I decided I really want a comfy one with casters and height adjustment and would pay up to ***. Not finding one locally, I found this one, priced reasonably even before the coupon, bought it, and am very pleased with fit, adjustments, and comfort (I guess attributable to the memory foam). My only regret is that I waited this long. I've only had it a few weeks. I hope it lasts forever like the traditional office chairs I've used.
