Updated Review – 2 1/2 years later8-13-22I abuse this chair, and it just won’t die! I still love it!I have gained a bit of weight since I got this chair, but I have never stopped flopping into it full dead weight, and it always takes it with ease!I sit in it sideways with my head on one arm and my legs propped up on or draped over the other.I push against the back way harder than I should while seated to stretch out my back, it has never even hinted at slipping/breaking.My grandkids push each other around on our hardwood floors, spinning it roughly and intentionally into other furniture.The arms now wiggle a bit, and a screw fell off it which I could not ever figure out where it fell from; other than that this chair is flawless!The hydraulics still work flawlessly.The reclining mechanism still works flawlessly.The upholstery basically still looks like it did when it was new; and the cushioning is still cushiony.I rarely use the leg rest so it still functions as new.Highly recommend this chair!2-22-20I am still head over heals in love with this chair and stand by my original 5 star rating.My original concerns are addressed here:STITCHING – The stitching has held up beautifully! I am super rough on this chair, I sit cross legged on it while wearing Doc Marten boots with metal clasps and drag my feet across the seat constantly. The stitching has not been affected at all by this (nor has the PU leather for that matter).ARM STABILITY – A week in the right arm became wobbly, I discovered the screws were loose, tightened them and the arm has not wobbled since. NOTE: I am super rough on the right arm in particular. I often sit slightly sideways in the chair leaning my full 140 pounds against that arm, and in order to adjust the recline I have lean over the arm at the waist to reach the lever, again pushing against the arm with my full 140 pound weight.LEG REST- The leg rest is used frequently and I quite often forget to be gentle with it. Despite this the leg rest is no more wobbly than the day I put the chair together.This chair is proving to be a fantastic buy for the money, much better than I had even hoped! I would most definitely repeat this purchase!Original review follows:1-15-2020 The chair arrived right on schedule. I have been in possession of it for 3.5 hours, and am sitting in it now writing this review.Facts to consider when reading this review:> I am a 5’2″ woman of average build – 10 pounds overweight is average right – in my 40’s> I have very short arms> I have absolutely no upper body strength to speak of.> I am NOT A GAMER – I bought this chair for use at my writing desk and watching television> Any numeric ratings in this review are on a scale of 1 – 10 with 1 being the worst and 10 being the bestPACKAGING > RATING: 10 It was like Tetris inside that box, with each individually wrapped stuffed component, and two boxes of hardware being separated by simple sheets of cardboard. There was absolutely no Styrofoam – it was beautiful!> Despite appearing like a tightly packed Tetris board I had absolutely no trouble getting everything out of the box, even with my complete lack of upper body strength.EASE OF ASSEMBLY > Rating: 11 From sealed box to fully assembled in about an hour > This includes unboxing, taking inventory, sorting and arranging the components in the order and groups they would be needed > OCD what can I say I completed the entire assembly by myself, completed unattended with one exception: > I had boyfriend hold the back in place while I got the screws that hold it to the seat started – I only got them started enough to stay put, then sent the boyfriend away, but I could have done it alone if necessary > I could actually follow the instructions … I am, unfortunately, stereotypically female when it comes to following instructions that contain only pictures with no text at all – these instructions were over the top easy to followINITIAL INSPECTION AFTER ASSEMBLY > RATING: 9.9 Every component, from the upholstered pieces to the washers in the tool kit, was in pristine condition> All joints and connection points were flawlessly aligned, smooth and sturdy> It is very visually appealing and identical to the images the seller supplied on it’s page > NOTE: I did not use the wheels it came with as we have hardwood floors, so I had also ordered inline skate wheels at the same time and used them instead – it should be further noted that the wheels appeared to be pristine and are being saved for use on another piece of furniture in the future> Loss of .01 in rating due to the thread used in the stitching looking thinner than I would expect for a chair of this price and quality design/manufacturing > It should be noted that I had read about feature on several “Top Ten Gaming Chairs of 2019″ websites so I was not surprised to note thisFUNCTIONALITY > RATING: 9.25 I cannot rate the wheels, as I mentioned earlier I have not yet used them. They were therefore completed excluded from the rating.> The seat is very comfortable, the padding is very firm, but gives just the right amount for me to feel like it stay comfy for a good long time – when comparing this note to other reviews remember I am 5’2” and about 130 pounds fully clothed > Due, I assume, to my size, I am unable to lower the chair! LOL Apparently I do not weigh enough to activated the hydraulics! LOL Being a little overweight, I was quite pleased with this discovery, but, to be fair no extra points were added to the rating for this.> The seat back contour was very well designed. Again, due to my stature – and I keep mentioning this because so many of the reviews seem to be written by big and tall men – it doesn’t “hug” me like it is designed to do, HOWEVER, it is still quite comfortable. The contour was apparently designed around the center of the seat in a slope so that I can still feel the hint of the hug.> My feet do not touch the floor in the lowest position! LOL I knew from the dimensions that the seller provided on the page that this would be the case. No points were deducted for this.> The arms that are mentioned in almost every review as being wobbly, are, at least at 3 hours into use not wobbling at all, but definitely feel like they could more secure. > This has been mentioned to varying degree in almost ever review I read and I visited and read reviews at four top ten websites, Amazon, Walmart, Sams, Costco, and about a half dozen other random websites. > Loss of .25 in rating for mediocre arm stability> The lumbar support just got in my way. The seat back has enough of “bump” in just the right place for me. I am saving it for possible later in the chair’s life. No rating points deducted, this is just personal preference.> The head rest is nowhere near in the right place for me and I am not using it, although I am saving it for possible use on something else down the line. Again, personal preference, no points deducted.> The leg rest is an AWESOME FEATURE! It was most definitely a selling point for me. > The farthest edge of the leg rest falls at the very top of my ankle and is very comfortable. > I am 5’2″ Engaging and retracting the leg rest is apparently a learned skill and at 3 hours in I am still a little stop and go. > No points deducted as I can tell it operator learning curve and not a mechanical problem.> In the retracted position the leg rest mechanism feels extremely secure.> In the engaged position it is obvious that the arms holding it to the underside of the seat are not as secure as they should be; enough so that I worry about accidentally putting too much weight on the leg rest and snapping the arms off their mount. > The arms are attached to the seat bottom much too close to the edge of the seat; if the back end of the arms were longer and mounted further back on the seat bottom they would be much sturdier. > Loss of 0.5 points deducted from the rating for insecure mounting of leg rest.> EASE OF CONTROL >RATING: 10 Reclining and return action is very smooth with only minimal learning curve. I was a pro in less than a minute. > The Recline Lock and Height Lock controllers are just barely within my comfort zone of reach, I have to lean over the side quite a bit to reach them. Furniture is not designed for short people, no points deducted. > I cannot speak to the wheels as I am not using them, and they were not included in the rating.OVERALL RATING: 9.85Please forgive any typos, I am sure I missed some. LOLI will come back in a few weeks/months with an update to this review,
Respawn model 110 black/red gaming chairI was looking for replacement office chairs, preferably high back. Prices were all over the map, and so were the reviews. I spotted these–not office chairs, but definitely usable–on sale, so I jumped and got two. As it turns out, the wife doesn’t like her new chair and opted to keep using her squeaky old one.Amazon said it was going to be 4-5 days and the chairs would arrive separately. A couple updates later and the chairs were arriving early. And, they did, one shipment at my gate 2 days early so the shipping thing was grand.After lugging the cartons onto my porch and contemplating lint for a few minutes, I decided it was time, so I opened the first carton (which was damaged) and went for it. Took my time, didn’t get carried away organizing stuff, and half an hour later the first chair was built with the second one unboxed. Assembling the second chair went like clockwork. About 45 minutes from starting I had both chairs ready to game.The cartons, though damaged, had protected the contents just fine. There were no visible defects in any of the parts. All the screws in the hardware packs had thread locking compound on them, the parts were organized along with two hex wrenches, and one set of spare hardware (one of each type) was included.The pedestals assembled quickly and solidly: attach spokes to hubs, insert casters, drop lifts into hubs, drop covers over lifts. Next seat brackets were bolted to seats, seat backs were lowered into place & bolted, arm rests were bolted on, pillow secures with elastic, and done.I left hardware a little loose until I was sure the parts were aligned, then I tightened the screws fully. Do this to all the screws including the armrests. The assemblies will be ‘tight’ at first but they will break in! Better a little stiff when new than screws falling out a couple months later!I am about 5’10” and 170 lbs and so far the chairs are just peachy. The backrest is slightly taller than me when I’m seated; lumbar support is in roughly the right spot. I don’t use the auxiliary pillow unless fully reclined. The reclining mechanism on one chair slips a tiny bit but then locks solidly. The pedestals have a little flex in them but not enough for concern. The armrests feel reasonably solid but I don’t put my full weight on them. Same goes for the footrest, which feels a little springy, and reaches to my ankles when fully extended. The padding is adequate for me on all parts and I have slept in the chair.My only critique so far is the armrest pads should be a couple inches longer at the backrest end, and the seat should be at least one inch longer. Overall, it’s a nice chair for the price, fingers crossed that it will be reasonably durable.Side note: apparently my legs shrank while writing this. The footrest reaches to about 76 mm or 3″ above my ankles, oops.

It’s all what you’re used toThis is my third desk chair. I still have them all. I bought the first one in 1992, the second in 2002, and this one in 2022. The first was a entry level desk chair. I don’t remember what it cost, but it was expensive for me at the time, so let’s say $150. The second is an Aeron chair. It was a gift, but listed for about $800. Then there is this one.I wanted a new office chair because the Aeron chair, which I’ve been sitting in nearly every day for 20 years, is dandy for work, but uncomfortable for watching video. Amazon reviews are nearly useless because people overrate (“I replaced all the screws, added arm rest pads, and a seat pillow – five stars!”) or have no point of comparison (“This is so much better than my $30 army surplus chair!”). I wanted a yellow striped one to go with the John Deere Green desk, but camo was the best I could do – really, I bought it for the color. My only requirements were that it recline and that it have padded arm rests.The new seat is harder than the 1992 chair, which has been in use for forty years, now; albeit not daily use. The seat is definitely deep enough to support a memory foam pillow, so I bought one. It’s a bit small for the chair, but it’s a vast improvement.It does recline, but it doesn’t rock back and forth, which the Aeron chair does (technically, “can be adjusted to do”; it’s optional). The footrest is fine, despite the reviews. There’s just a trick: As you recline the back, one’s butt tends to slide forward from the seat/back hinge, so one’s feet start to dangle off the footrest; just push yourself up to keep your butt in the correct spot and the footrest is fine.The head pillow is actually quite nice, if the back is mostly vertical. As one reclines, the angle toward a vertical monitor becomes too steep (“shallow”? whatever) for it and one must crane one’s neck for good viewing. An airplane pillow solves that problem (as it does for a traditional recliner and watching TV).One nice feature: The arm rests are tied into the reclining mechanism so they stay at the right height as the chair reclines. This is “your mileage may vary” because the arms are not adjustable. They are quite nice for me – at 6’2″ with a long torso.4-star justification: For a shot in the dark purchase of a medium-grade chair, I’m quite happy with it. If I need/want another desk chair, I’ll roll the dice and try something else.
Great for the moneyI got this in, and it’s pretty good.I like the size of the seat, I’m a bigger guy, and I can sit in this with a leg curled under me without the arms jamming me up, so that’s nice.The neck pillow is too low if you run it through the holes made for it, but I put mine around the top of the chair back and it’s just right.The lumbar support is adjustable to pretty much anywhere you want it.The foot rest, I like it, but I don’t love it. It doesn’t feel as sturdy as I might want, and using it makes the whole chair tilt forward slightly. I find it’s most comfortable pulled in as close as possible, note this is all while sitting upright. If you lay the back out, it’s rather comfy and the tilt doesn’t happen.All in all I’d rate this at about an 8/10 overall 9/10 for quality vs cost I did not expect it to feel this solid given the below 200$ price tag.

Nice but uncomfortable after a whileI’ve had this chair for about a month now and I use it everyday for a number of hours per day. The build quality is great so far everything fit correctly and assembly was easy. I did add some different gliding wheels instead of the ones that come with it, this made the chair super smooth and quiet when rolling around.Pros:Easy assembly, good build quality, footrest easy to use and comfortable, neck pillow nice and plush, arm rests are relatively comfortableCons:The lumbar cushion is nice and plush as well, however it’s a little difficult to find a comfortable spot for it, too low and your back gets sucked between that and the headrest, if it’s too high it just feel awkward. Going to try using it without the lumbar cushion.Next, my biggest complaint, although the cushion of the chair itself is soft and plush, it’s way too soft. After a while you sink into the chair and it ends up being your butt on top of the plastic because the seat cushion has flattened out (I weigh about 160lbs) and obviously that’s very uncomfortable. It does however “reinflate” after you leave it alone for a while, but again it “deflates”Overall I would say it’s relatively worth the money given the other options available. If you use it for a couple hours at a time I’d say you’re good. If you’re sitting all day long I would suggest trying to go for higher quality.
Great but could use improvements.So far this chair has been good so far with lumbar, adjustable seat height and reclining back without the fear of falling back. The condition of the box it came in looked like it was throw and kicked around, luckily the parts weren’t damaged at all. However I will say the same thing that most reviews are saying are true. The arm rests do wobble, even if the screws are tightened all the way ( additional spacers/washers may be needed to correct this problem). Also the dense foam at the bottom of the seat does wear down after 2 hours. Had to get a memory foam seat to correct this problem. The foot rest does fill a bit flimsy but I really don’t use it.

goodI bought this chair back in July and overall its a great chair. If you’re sitting on the fence about getting this chair because you’ve seen all the negative reviews I’m here for you. The chair is amazing, a great chair for how much it cost. One con I do have is the fact that it did break one month into use so be careful when laying on it fully reclined. do not put excessive force on the back plate or it will break. assembly is fairly easy you don’t need power tools or even a 2nd grade reading level to figure out the instructions on how to put it together. I rate this chair a 10/10 would buy again

Very nice chairThis does require assembly as it comes in a box as dense as they could get it.Carefully follow the instructions and it will be a breeze – have patience.The worst part is probably the nuts and screws pack – once you open it, there is no way to tell which letter code they are so either take a picture first or just figure it out.Very sturdy and comfy chair as you can adjust several ways, up/down and recline back.The leg rest that pops out from below, I probably wont ever use but good for those that want to recline like a lazy-boy chair, it just goes straight out and then you can recline the back.I will be using this mostly for office work and will try to update this review after several months of use.

Great except for broken seat adjustment handleI purchased this chair for my son, an avid gamer, and he loves it. It was easy to assemble. The only problem with it is it arrived with the seat up/down adjustment handle broken even though the packaging had no damage. I didn’t want to re-box and return the whole chair. It is great and usable except for the broken handle with sharp edges (which I could sand smooth but would rather have a fully intact chair with a full size handle). There does not appear to be a way to obtain replacement parts, even under warranty. If anyone has any ideas or if be greatly appreciated.

Great so farAs of writing this I have owned my chair for two days now, that being said out of the box assembly was easy enough and the chair came in good condition. The cushioning and fake leather feel very good to sit in (out of the box) but I am interested to see how it wears over time, I am 5’10 140lbs and the headrest pillow sits comfortably in the arch of my neck, definitely if I was a few inches taller the headrest pillow would be too low for usage. Did a few hour gaming/homework session and the chair didn’t fatigue, droop or lose it’s recline angle throughout. I have seen some people say the back of the chair does not hold itself in place but that may be a faulty unit or incorrect assemble from my point of view because the mechanism to lock the rear of the chair in place should not be able to fail very easily. I have seen people say the arm rests get loose over time so I will see how they hold up after a few months of me hitting them out of anger after getting killed some kid on cod. With the way it’s put together I would definitely recommend using some extra threadlike on top of what is already applied to the hardware since the screws will inevitable back themselves out, or keep the correct allen wrench size handy to re-tighten screws after a while of use. This is my first impression will update this review if I encounter issues or after a decent period of time.
