I purchased the chair on a Thursday and it arrived on Tuesday. So, it only took 5 days via Fedex to get to me (with SuperSaver Shipping), and that is great considering I live on Oahu. So if you live on the mainland, expect to get it in probably 3-4 days. It comes in a big box (about 50 pounds), and is packaged really well. There is some assembly required, but they give you all the tools you need to set it up. It's not difficult at all, and I put it together in about 15-20 mins
Here is my breakdown of the chair:
Comfort - This chair is actually pretty comfortable. It could use a little more cushion, but overall it was more comfortable than I expected. I'm 6'2", and I fit well in chair. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over 6'5", but anyone smaller will be fine. The tilt and swivel is really nice, and the armrests are in the perfect position.
Sound - This is what really sold me on the chair. There is a speaker inside the headrest on each side, which gives great surround sound audio. There is also a sub in body of the chair, which isn't too powerful, but you can feel the bass if you turn it up. I use this chair when I play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and it makes the multiplayer so much better. Now I can hear every footstep, and every other small sound that you just cant pick up on regular TV speakers. It even makes watching TV better.Read more ›
One of my chairs had a defective speaker. The manufacturer had a big sticker on the chair saying to call them 1st in case of trouble. Well all I got was an answering machine and they never did return my call. Fortunately Amazon came to the rescue and paid for return shipping and sent me a new chair which works fine.
I really should have thought about what I wanted before I bought this.
The base has no wheels so it is difficult to move around the floor and it is quiet heavy to be lifting all the time - I got around this by putting a couple of those furniture easy sliders under the edges.
The height of the chair is not adjustable and it is too low to use as a regular chair at your computer if you are working there for extended periods of time.
The seat is inclined at such an angle that you don't have any back support if you do work at the computer - but you could fall asleep in it very easily.
The seat is comfortable enough for the moment but if the cushioning compresseses too much more (I've only had it about a week) then I could see some 'augmentation' being needed. There is also a slight pressure to the underside of your legs (around the hamstrings) at the edge of the chair so if you sit there for a long time that may be an issue with getting 'pins-and-needles'. I haven't yet felt anything like that but I move around a lot with the racing sims - and my legs are always active. If you use an ottaman (ie feet up) then I doubt you will notice it.
Also, there are power wires that need to be run to the chair even if you use the wireless audio transmitter, so there may be something to trip over depending on where you run your power form - not a problem if you are expecting that.
So, all that being said - if you are after a layback chair that doesn't need to be moved around too much then this thing is awesome. The sound from the speakers really creates a fantastic atmosphere and brings you into the game like I have never been before. The speakers are right at your head so you hear everything.Read more ›
Cheap cheap cheap
Great sound (especially the bass-seat)
Volume controls and headphone jack
Seating height (not as low as a video rocker)
Audio transmitters (they probably work great in the middle of a cornfield, but not in an apartment)
Ergonomics (these aren't Herman Miller's)
Size (These are *barely* on the small side. I'm 6".)
Build (There is a *slight* wobble at the base.)
