If you read the poor reviews for this item it is by people whining about why their $1,000 chair at work is better than this one. I have the predecessor to this one which lasted 8 years. One of the arm rests has rubber that is now fraying again but it's still usable. On the chair the screws under the seat need tightening occasionally as do the arm rests. The armrests are very slightly wobbly but not really noticeable unless you want to think about it. I find the lumbar support is fine for most people and it can be a matter of preference as to whether it really goes low enough. If you're 5'2" and under then you should consider that many items may not be fit exactly for your size. I can say that my friends who are 5'4" say it's fine. The mesh is relaxing, breathes easily but does need to be dusted and vacuumed if you're in a room that gets dusty. It will accumulate dust. The head rest is also fine. Uncomfortable? don't know what that means in this context. Has a small pad for the base of the head. However I can see it getting challenging if you are around or less than 5'4" or so because of the chair height. It has some adjustments but not the high power adjustments like angling the back of the chair forward or back. It is very comfortable to sit in the chair for many, many hours once you have it set right. Leaning back is nice and supportive. But it is not a reclining lean as many wish to have, just supporting your head when you want to push back a little. For the money, it's a fantastic chair for a home office.
Well, for starters for some reason I thought I ordered a different model. I was looking at so many different chairs that they all just blurred together. But that's all on me. Thought I bought one with adjustable arms and couldn't figure out how as I was putting it together that that would work out. Review title doesn't necessarily refer to this, but if you read on you'll see what it does. I'm ranking it 4/5 stars because of the misconception of the size from the image. Nothing more. Ordered the chair on the 25th, early, EARLY morning. Got it on the 28th. ETA was supposed to be Monday, but got it 2 days early! So *** (which is who's selling this, not OverStock), deserves much kudos on actually shipping out their products in an expected time frame that we've all come accustomed to. Please keep in mind that the last few chairs I've owned for my desk, have been "hand me downs" and the last one I bought brand new, was well over 10 years ago and none of which specifically necessarily "ergonomical". So while some of the features may/may not be abnormal to some, they feel weird to me. The chair was fairly easy to put together. I kept expecting to see instructions as I was pulling it out, but didn't. Ended up finding them when I was about done putting the chair together in the plastic with the back piece. So, should tell you it isn't difficult to put together. And I don't consider myself all that "furniture building" inclined. I typically have issues putting "IKEA" type stuff together to the point where I want to smash it, go buy a new one and pay someone to put it together for me. - I only had issues with screwing the back piece on to the seat because there was a staple in one of the screw holes preventing the screw from doing it's job. Ended up having to jimmy it out. Which I suspect won't be an issue with every piece sold, so I wouldn't worry about that. - I had an issue in the very last step, putting one of the arms on. The screws/holes weren't lining up. Had to use some force to get them to align and then screwing them in towards the end, felt like my fingers were going to bleed. Then again, suppose this won't be an issue with all of them. The instructions also had the step labeled as "L" - "R" for the arms, although I saw and still see no indication on the arms or in the wrapping that there was any difference. They look the same and the one I attached first had pretty much no problem going in, so don't see that necessarily being an issue with "every" piece, but who knows. Might be and is more likely than the staple issue I had. - On the subject of the arm rests, they're a bit short and low. Or at least they are for my preference. Which is why for the first bit of putting it together, I was still under the impression that they were adjustable and puzzled on how it'd work. Definitely don't seem like they're long enough for ones that aren't adjustable. - The seat isn't all that large. Old chair I was able to bend one leg and sit on it and be comfortable. This one, I can barely fit my bottom on it, let alone do what I'm used to. It is definitely smaller than what it appears in the image. Although it is pretty comfortable, just not as large as you'd think by looking at the image. - The back is VERY, VERY "ergonomic" - I guess is the way to put it. While the padding is pretty comfortable, it feels like you're sitting in a wooden chair or against a wall with how "straight"/"stiff"/I dunno, it is. Also very tall. Definitely one of the things that the image gets right with it is that the back is tall! Which is a good thing, just will take some getting used to I guess. - The tilt feels off too. Not sure if this is maybe some how not having the seat on the base properly (which I don't think is the case?). It feels like you're "forcing it?" to do what you're wanting it to do (and no, I don't have it locked! I checked! LOL). Which again, I guess could be a good thing opposed to barely moving and all of a sudden feeling like you're going to tip over cause it tils like 45 degree's in a split second. The image definitely makes it look like it's larger and more spacious than it really is. It is comfortable, don't get me wrong. It just isn't as large as you'd think by looking at the image. The seat looks much larger than it is. Couple that with the arm rests and they're really my only complaints about the chair. Not necessarily to the point where I'd deal with taking it apart and dealing with the hassle of returning it. But to the point where after a period of time if I don't get used to it, I will definitely be looking for a new one to replace it and either give this to a family member or garage sell it. Definitely seems more appropriate for a child/teen opposed to a grown adult male. Hope I was able to shed some light/information on to those interested in purchasing this chair. While the chair (as of now) isn't necessarily ideal for me, it doesn't mean that it won't be for you nor does it mean that it's a bad chair! Like I said, just not what I'm used to. I will try update on how it's holding up after awhile!
This is a pretty good chair. It adjust to fit anyone. There is just 1 thing I would change. The arms adjust up and down and they swivel for you to get out of your chair. I don't like the swivel part. IF YOU use your arm to get out of your chair it will swivel and hurt your wrist.
