Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Posted . Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
I purchased this chair during the black friday deals that went on last year and after 3 months I have to say that it is comfortable! I'm a Large person (280 lbs+) so the two deciding factors were what is the Rated Weight limit and how wide is the seat. It says 250 is the Max Load but in all actuality it can handle more than that (in my case that is.). The Legs are made of Metal and are solid. So far I have had zero issues when it comes to stability and support. The seat took a little bit of getting use to because it is bucket style seating but after a few months of breaking the seat in I can sit comfortably. My only complaint about the chair is the pillow for the head rest as you have very limited amount of room that you could adjust up or down. However, I do really like the pillow for the lumbar support and that has a really wide range that the height can be adjusted for.
The real question, is this product worth the Full Retail Price? I would say so! The quality certainly does match the price!
I love this chair. This has helped with my lower back strain almost immediately. This chair is firm, yet soft enough for the long haul. It was really simple to put together and right out of the box it has that new car smell! There is a review about “poor quality” and the armrests not lining up properly, I can see how this happened after installing the armrests. When you tighten the screws all of the way on the fabric side before the metal side, you will get the armrests to turn in and and touch like the previous reviews did. I tightened the screws on the metal side first, and there was not a problem. However, it’s a great chair, get yourself one.
I have now had this chair for over a year so I decided to do a review as I am now looking for a better ergonomic chair to replace this one.
1. Its a solid chair, even after a year nothing is loose
2. The adjustable back is nice to set just where you want it
3. The arms are spaced apart nicely leaving my elbows to fall naturally on them
1. The tilt is useless but this is probably the case with any gaming chair. Even with the tension as loose as can be, it still takes effort to recline and stay reclined.
2. The lumbar pillow just slides down. I pull it up where I want it but with any shift, it just slides back down to the bottom
3. The seat can get a little flat after a while
I am not a big gamer but I do work from home. I have been working from home for over five years and my last chair started to droop on one side which left me sitting crooked. I am in my office for 8 to 10 hours a day, five days a week. I need a chair that is comfortable for that time. This chair just works which is fine but for this price, I want more comfort which is why I will now be replacing this chair.
I’ve been using this chair 40 hours a week since November of 2020. I could not imagine doing my job without it. When finding out I would be working from home I didn’t know what to do when it came to my chair. I was told spend the money on the chair because it’s necessary. People were right by saying that. I love this chair. My body never hurts. I love the lumbar support. Seriously makes all the difference. My only complaint is that it after while the chair gets kinda noisy and makes these clanking sounds when moving around. Still gets 5 stars though all day!
A:AnswerMany times, it seems as if companies will change prices on the different colours, depending on what is selling better. Solid black not selling as well, mark the price down. It is just a guess, as I have no first hand knowledge of pricing practices and strategies, but having worked retail for the past 12 years, it is just the trends I see.
