Excellent chair - question mark over durability
on 12 August 2013
[Review updated 6 months after purchase]
First off, the chair itself is absolutely wonderful - wasn't really sure what to expect, but whatever expectations I had were exceeded. Very easy to setup, and within a minute I was sitting getting a nice massage.
The shiatsu massage setting is very powerful, and really hits those hard to reach spots really well. I thought it might struggle with my full weight leaning against it, but it just powers through.
Highly recommended, wish I had got one years ago!
However, (this is an update on the original review) the chair only lasted about 6 months. On examination, it seems there is an internal fabric panel between the massage nodes and the main fabric of the chair. This was worn through in a place that then made the node get caught in the hole, and prevent the node from moving. I can't really see chairs lasting long with this defect, as don't see how the fabric would ever stand up to constant rubbing and heat from the nodes.
