No surprises: easily, quickly assembled just as pictured. Pleasantly surprised to find the frame heavier weight /gauge than expected. Looks like it will last a while, but like other reviewer found rust spots developing on base/leg area within days of initial assembly. It's in my backyard 100 yards from the beach so it'll be interesting to see what the salt air does. But at the price paid, solid value and more than worth it if it lasts five years.
It is a comfortable chair, but has a manufacturing defect with an arm and rope was noted to be frayed a week later where it has not come into contact with anything else.
I haven't purchased this from Overstock yet, but was in Mexico this winter visiting the Mayan ruins and saw these for sale at $100. I've so regretted not buying one but now that I see them here I'm hinting to my husband for my birthday. At any rate, now I'm glad I didn't have to tote it back on a cruise ship and plane.
