The good: Amazing price for a recliner this size. Extremely easy to assemble. Looks nice. Feels nice. Seems durable. Reclines to a nearly horizontal position. Seat, arm, and leg cushions are all very comfortable.
The bad: The back cushions. Quite frankly, I don't understand how so many people could rave about the comfort of this chair. Look at the back cushions. The back is divided into 3 separate cushions, and if you look carefully, you can see that the middle one sticks out further than the other 2 and the top one sort of angles back so that if you lean your head against it, you end up looking at the ceiling. Does that SEEM comfortable to you? Don't get me wrong, it's not awful or anything. I would rate the comfort of the chair as "very good" when I'm leaning forward (i.e. not using the back padding), "pretty good" when I'm just sitting back, but "fairly poor" when I'm reclining, and this is coming from a person who slept on a $200 futon (which I also got from Walmart) for 5+ years with no complaints, so I'm not exactly a comfort snob.
I bought this chair without being able to try it because the reviews were through the roof, and again, it's not a bad chair by any means, but I was definitely disappointed with the overall level of comfort based on what I had read. Obviously, a lot of people love it, so maybe it's just me, but the padding in the back is exactly as I described, so if that doesn't sound comfortable to you, I'd recommend you find a way to try it before you buy it if at all possible.
