This is a very nice-looking product.
Chicago Mom
It's really more like a nice soothing (quiet) vibration running over your back while you read, watch TV, play games, meditate or just sit quietly and relax.
Undercover Angel
The vibrating massage "mechanism" is hard and uncomfortable against my lower back... in the on or off position.

This backrest is made of nice firm material, and covered with a nice faux suede fabric. It seems pretty high quality, should be fairly durable. It's nice how it folds up -- although even folded, it's still a bulky item.

I found that the backrest was too "upright" for my taste. It might be perfect for doing paperwork, working on a laptop, breakfast in bed, etc. But just for bedtime reading, I prefer reclining to sitting. This bedrest doesn't really allow reclining. The uprightness is emphasized in my situation since we have a really soft bed (waveless waterbed), so sitting upright I kind of sink into the bed but the backrest does not.

The massager provides a vibrating massage in the lower back area. I really need a firm kneading massage in the neck/shoulder area, so it doesn't do much for me. But it might be just right for others.

This is pretty good. The massager is great, not too hard, not too soft. I just wish it did the whole back instead of just the lower back. The way it folds up for storage is excellent & it really is well made & of good materials. My only real gripe is that it sits you up too straight. Its like your sitting up in a chair instead of relaxing comfortably in bed. But I suppose one could get used to that. Its worth it for the price if you don't mind sitting up straight.

This is a very inexpensive product for what it is capable of doing. It is very comfortable and relaxing. Even if it's not used as a massager, it's a great backrest in bed. Very pleased with the purchase.

I'm trying to be objective and review this item fairly. It looked bigger in the picture and while there may have been dimensions listed, It was hard to tell. What I mean by this is... I am an average size man (5'11")... the cupholder ends up being located directly under my forearm... not realistic to use in that location. The arms are short... maybe 12 inches and lastly the "headrest" does a wonderful job supporting my upperback and maybe a little of my neck. The vibrating massage "mechanism" is hard and uncomfortable against my lower back... in the on or off position. It is made of good quality material.

All in all it would probably be great for someone who is 5'2" or smaller... it's more child-size.

Sorry HoMedics... I wanted to give you a good review... I really did.

This back rest offers good back support. The massage feature isn't very strong and is a little louder than I like while watching T.V. The cupholder is shallow and hard to reach. I am still very happy with my purchase though because it is very comfortable. I can read, do puzzles, work on my laptop... whatever with ease. It is sturdy and well made. I'm glad I bought it and I do recommend it. If you are just looking at the massage feature, I'd go with a different product. If you are looking for a comfortable way to sit up in bed, get this one. I can sit for long periods of time with it and not suffer any back ache or anything.

This product is very uncomfortable. The back cushion is very hard and has a plastic lump for the "massage" feature that does a great job of hitting you in the spine. The arms are very tall and leave my arms in an uncomfortable position. The cupholder is also uncomfortable, due to being a large plastic object that takes up about half of the usable space on the left arm. The only upside is that the finish quality seems to be decent.

Great in theory but I found it very uncomfortable and will be returning it ASAP.

I was sure my daughter could use this with a new baby to feed and the cup holder to hold a warm bottle. I thought this would even be a good idea for me to do some paperwork in bed and message my tired back. The joke was on us. This product is very well made but the arms are to short. The cup holder is a great for resting your elbow. I am 5 foot 7 and my daughter is 5 foot 5. This is made for a very small person. The back head rest is too short. It fits the lower part of the neck at the shoulders. I wish this came in sizes. The men in the family just laugh. It would never work for them. The workmanship is great.

this offer you very good support for your back and the arm rest is also very supportive.

you better have a large bed or a convenient place to put it away when you sleep or a long bed so that you can leave it there and put a small pillow there when you sleep.

never use the massage and i do not think the massaging is usefull

there is another version which come with a light sold by sharper image for $99 and you can get it refurbished for &49
