The lumbar system is really cheaply made. The lower pelvic support snapped in one area. I removed the whole lumbar system and actually now find the chair better without it. The standard mesh provides just the right support.
Some overall fit and finish quality issues. One of the arms needs tightening every so often. You will need a short T30 torx screw driver to do this. The controls feel cheap and flimsy. Overall construction seems average.
The painted metal could have been better. It scrapes off easily if you hit a desk.
For some odd reason the back of the chair is COVERED with dust. I don't get where all that dust came from but it seems to attract a lot of it.
My biggest overall complaint is the "Back-Stop". Like many other chairs, the Zody has a feature which prevents the chair from reclining. The Zody's offers way too much sway back when locked. I feel like I can't REALLY ever sit upright if I apply mild pressure. I have the tilt tension cranked to the most stiff setting but it would be nice if back stop actually stopped the chair upright. There is a "Forward-Tilt" option but that actually tilts the whole chair slightly forward for intense tasks. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about sitting normally and having the back locked without sway. Some will tell you it is good for a chair to have some sway but I don't like it and this Zody has too much of it.
Overall not a bad chair. It is designed, engineered, and built in the USA which I appreciate. I just hope Haworth uses more effort with quality and fixes the annoying back stop feature. Other good alternatives I tried out include the Nightingale CXO and Herman Miller Embody.
One more thing, SAVE YOUR INVOICE/RECEIPT! Haworth will want NOTHING to do with you unless you have valid proof of purchase. This is important if receiving it as a gift or buying the chair used. Herman Miller by comparison only asks for the serial number to verify warranty.
Update 10/26/2016: Still have this chair. Overall it is holding up well. I can sit in this chair for hours without strain. Although you should always take breaks and walk around a few times an hour. I do recommend the Zody despite the earlier complaints that Haworth needs to eventually work out.
I've tried a lot of different ergo-chairs and this is the best by far.
It's incredibly comfy and adjustable- and is very easy to use which I found other chairs not to be. Also the seat itself is rather cushy and pretty comfortable despite it being foam.
Don't waste your money going after a bigger name chair like aeron. The mesh seat in other chairs isn't worth it- and can actually be painful as it can squeeze your hips in together over time as the mesh creates a valley shape underneath you when you sit it in.
I love the arm rests- they pivot, move in and out and forward and back supporting almost any seating posture I find myself in.
There are cheaper models available but get the fully loaded one as it has a forward tilt feature which is great if you're working for very long periods of time. If you just read in the chair or don't need to be in a more active position (or don't need to be in a typing-like posture for long periods) then this might not be necessary and the chair can be had for less money.
If you go that route be sure to get the 4d arms though with the tilt mechanism and the PAL lumbar. Again, the controls are easy to use, and as an additional bonus it's obviously a very nice chair but doesn't wreak of pretentiousness like the Aeron chair.
I'm planning to buy another one of these chairs for home as it is a bit hard to put up with anything less after I've had a taste for the Zody. I seriously feel bad when I sit in mine next to others who don't have one of their own.
I'm a little obsessive about researching higher ticket purchases, and after around a combined 50 hours of online and in-store research this is the chair I picked, and now also took the time to write about.
One caveat: the PAL lumbar system is made of thin plastic and has broken before (the back of my belt will often catch on the lumbar device) – thus 4 stars instead of 5.
