First, the Lindo's headrest is fixed - I like to listen to music or watch a movie in a reclined position - in the Lindo you end up staring at the ceiling...don't know about you but my ceiling isn't that interesting. Having said that, although the Cobham headrest is fully adjustable, it doesn't seem very firm and so moves about a little bit, but I think it'll be ok once in position.
Secondly, the Lindo "clunks" very loudly as you move position (as you recline/sit forward) - this doesn't seem to be an issue unique to my friend's chair as I've read reviews of the Lindo where other buyers have had the same problem. So far I have had no such problem with the Cobham.
I was also concerned about assembling the Lindo - my friend took HOURS to put the Lindo together (he's not that much of a thicky either) - and the "cross-threading" issue many buyers seem to have had - he didn't but I did hear him cuss a bit at the awkwardness of some aspects of assembling it (hmmm, maybe I should have helped...?). It took me no more than 45 minutes to assemble the Cobham (including unpacking it) - just 7 chunky "Allen" bolts (key included plus basic but adequate instructions) - not awkward at all.
Finally, a couple of observations that might help you decide if either of these chairs are for you...the material on the Lindo seat, head- & arm-rests is a kind of leathery vinyl - nice enough but I was concerned about hot summer evenings/stickyness etc.Read more ›
After another 6 months, the mesh of the seat pad had permanently squashed forward, leaving an extremely hard sitting surface. I'm a lithe and light chap, only 65kg. I suspect it's better for a larger built user, who'd spread their load over a greater area than my posterior. I need to find another, ideally with a different style seat pad.
That said - great for the money, and if you regularly grease the ball bearings (tip up the chair, remove the clip, slide off the base) it should last a few years at least. It was really comfortable until the seat pad went. So much so, I have two. Unfortunately, since I started working from home, I spend more than 8hrs a day in the chair, so now both of them are gone.
The arm rests are extremely well cushioned and great for surfing the web, with the reclining position great for watching films/TV on the PC.
Like I mentioned above, the headrest is more of a neck rest, and I am not a tall person. Even with the head rest fully extended it does not reach the top of my head, but this is not too much of a problem for me as this is were I have I pains.
The head rest is also quite flimsy, meaning it can move during periods of sitting.
At first it was a little painful all round and I put it down to my terrible posture, but some one else confirmed after a couple of weeks that it now felt more comfortable after some bedding in from use. Definitely one to consider if you are in the market for a new chair in this price range.
