Good quality chair that looks modern
Overall, I'm pleased by the quality of the chair. It appears to be built from robust components and the chrome finish is rather nice. After a week of use, I've found it to be very comfortable. At least as comfortable as the chairs provided in my office, which I assume are more expensive.
I was worried when I opened the box, because the interior packing was the worst I've ever seen. It was like a drunk monkey had thrown the chair in there, with a few assorted bits of polystyrene. See picture. This was the first time I had bought an item that hadn't received a review yet, so I was panicking.
However, the pieces arrived without damage. I was easily able to build the chair in 10 minutes. They supplied a good quality hex key and well-labelled screws, including spares (which is nice). The finished product looks very expensive and seems comfortable. I've only owned in a few days, so I'll update this review if I find comfort issues after extended use.
I like the fact that the arms are adjustable up and down - this is not common in chairs in this price range. I wish the chair arms had flat tops - instead they have a gentle curvature, which tends to encourage your arms to lay a certain way that I don't find entirely comfortable. The levers all seem to do what they claim they do, although they are strangely far down the side of the chair compared with most other chairs I've used.
The main disappointment on the chair is the spring back. Apparently I can twist the knob on the bottom of the chair to increase the spring resistance, so the chair pushes back more firmly. However, I found it made almost no difference. After turning it quite a lot (with some difficulty), it was still just as easy to lean all the way back. I don't find this to be a big problem, since I mostly sit with the back in a locked position. But someone who finds this an important attribute might need to shop around.
There is also a middle lever which claims to adjust the tilt of the chair. This does absolutely nothing. With the lever up or down, I’m unable to tilt the seat or make any other adjustment. This is the main reason for docking a star.
In summary, this seems to be a good chair for the money....View More
