It's been a couple of weeks since I assembled the chair, so that experience is behind me enough to not overshadow my whole experience with the chair. I work at home on the phone and at my computer, so I've used this chair quite a lot since I got it. Overall, as my review rating indicates, it's a good chair. All of the materials are sturdy and I don't think it's going to break like my last chair did. (I weigh 280). The cushions seem stiff at first, but this chair is rated to support 350 lbs for 8 hours, so keep that in mind. The seat doesn't tilt, but the backrest does and you can lock it in any position.
I can't reach the knob under the chair in the front that controls the unlocked seatback tension, and the default setting is very weak. So, I have the seatback locked all the time, but I change the locked position every so often for comfort. OK, I'm going to pass on a few tips on assembly. Follow the instructions literally. Yeah, I tried what I thought would be easier but I just wasted my time and effort. Mainly, instructions say to not tighten anything until final assembly. They mean it because nothing is aligned with the pre-drilled holes automatically. You assemble it loose enough so that you can push and squeeze everything to line up the holes and brackets and put in a bolt. Follow the diagrams, too. You need to position the chair parts as shown or you will have the wrong approach to push/squeeze the parts into position.I wish the instructions had explained all this to me. I still don't have the bolt screwed into the back where the frame attaches to the backrest. I could never get it to line up with the blind, sunken nut built inside the backrest. But, it's not moving or anything so I think it's ok. Good luck!
