I first bought one stool to try it, since I was pleased with it I bought two more. The FREE S&H and no sale taxes was one of the buying factors, along with the contemporary look of the stool. We were looking for countertop stool and these one with the adjustable heights are perfect. The chair is comfortable to sit on, in fact is much better than the typical wood one with the square edges, The stools were easy to assemble however I received one which was missing three screws (the ones that attached the plastic seat to the metal base). Forunately I was able to buy similar screws. In the overall I would recommend this product to those who like a high tech looking style but can't afford to spend a lot of money.
