Had this chair a bit over 2 months now.
+ Looks great and makes your desk area look a bit more spacious due to the minimalistic design and mesh.
+ Plenty of adjustments.
+ Mesh is very cool/breathable, both on the seat and the back.
+ Rolls on floor + Spins around easily.
+ Chair back tilts side-to-side slightly to adjust to your posture, so you get better support.
+ Arm rests are quite solid and durable, but still slightly squidgy and smooth.
+ Adjustable head rest works great.
+ Keeps you in a good posture!
- Seat cushioning is a bit too thin - fine for 1-2hours, then my behind aches a bit!
- Adjustable Lumbar support too often slips down to the lowest position.
- Arm rests are very slightly too far apart for my narrow build.
- Very minor wobble + chair squeak.
- Mesh seat gathers dust/debris etc and really needs to be hoovered to clean between the mesh gaps.
- Cats + the mesh backing could be a recipe for disaster if they like to scratch! (However mine are well behaved so far^^)
What I'm not sure about:
* I can't figure out how long this chair will last - it could be durable enough for 10years+ or it might only last like 2. The materials certainly feel very durable, but they're thin and simple, so once they start to go the chair will die off quickly.
* I find it really quite comfy considering it's a good-posture PC chair. But have issue with the seat - which you might also find is just a bit solid, especially if you need to sit for long spells without breaks. It's made of ~2inch foam, but there only feels like 1inch of give in the middle, so it is just a little too hard. In the end however, it mostly comes down to the types of chairs you're used to.
Seat height. Back + Seat + Armrests all tilt together with adjustable tension, which is lockable or left loose. Arm rest height and 2 width screw positions. Lumbar support behind mesh up/down. Head rest up/down with forward/back tilt. Also Back tilts side-to-side on its own slightly to adjust to your position.
Quite easy to figure out. I had English instructions which worked, but were a little brief on the description. Easiest to have someone help put it together, but it is ok on your own, just more tricky. Takes around 30min. If you think you're missing screws check they aren't taped to the inside of the box. Attach arm-rests first!
A year since I bought it, and using it every day:
The solidness of the seat has long since stopped bothering me - not sure if it's the chair that has softened, or me, but either way it is completely comfy now! Everything on the chair is still working perfectly, the only new complaint is the chair now squeaks a bit when leaning from side to side!
