This chair is pretty much as pictured and described and the ease of assembly wasn't bad at all. I love the look of the finished product. The fabric and wood finish are perfect. I bought some felt furniture pads for the bottom of both pieces, as they were scratching my floor. I am using this chair in my home office and my only complaint is that it is a little low when using my desk, so I use a pillow on the seat when I need to be on my keyboard for an extended period of time. The massage feature is certainly an added benefit and not something I was looking for, but I use it, to be sure.
The Office Star Professional Air Grid Chair is a good chair for the money, but not a great chair. This chairs weaknesses are minor, but worth mentioning. I use this chair replaced my home office chair and since I work out of my home I spend a lot of time in front of the computer with ma carcass planted in this chair. I would not recommend this chair for someone spending a lot of time in it, but this chair is great for moderate use. I still use the gel pad I purchased to finish out the life of my old chair, but that's for 10 to 14 hr days. Pros: Good back support Good overall quality Easy assembly Cons: The arm rests are little shoddy compared to how solid the rest of the chair is and seem like an after thought in the design. It's not exactly an attractive chair a choice of colors would help. The seat could use some help in the extended comfort category. Like I said before I still have to use a gel pad I bought for my old chair. That is the main disappointment, but for the price I didn't expect a Humanscale.
I have found the chair to be very comfortable although it is generally only used for a maximum of 2 hours per day. Finish is nice and color is shown on the site. Assembly is not the easiest......had some difficulty getting a few of the screws started. The chair has lately started creaking when I get into it (!'m 215#), so will have to check this out to see if the screws need to be retightened. Will update if there is a problem other than that.
