5 out of 5 eggsYepper!

Pros: Sturdy? Oh, yeah! I can lean back in it without feeling as if I'm gonna break something, unlike the last two or three chairs I've bought at the office supply store. Of course, those were only rated at 250 lbs, for 3-4 hours a day, too. This one is 500, 24/7.

Cons: The arms don't come with it. Wish there had been an option that included them. I'm still undecided on whether to buy 'em. The chair is in a smallish area, and the armlessness is a plus in turning around.

On the other hand, watching TV just about demands the arms.

Other Thoughts: I'm 6'2"; when I sit with correct posture, and the chair is at its highest, my heels are just barely off the floor. I'm not really sure how short you'd have to be such that you couldn't comfortably sit in it at its lowest setting, though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat BangForBuck Fat Person Chair

Pros: this chair is pretty comfy and WoW! is it sturdy i personally dont have it but my friend does and sometimes i steal it from him :)

ill be buying this soon for my new computer bundle

Cons: price and no arms
u can buy the arms seperate but tbh for the price it should include them

for a 500 lb weight limit chair this is the cheapest/bang for buck other 500lb weight limit chairs go in the 500$+ range

Other Thoughts: it could have had sides but since im big and would probably bend the sides anyways not really a con

if ur not as big as i am u might have problems reaching the ground on this thing

i found it for 298$ at a different online retailer
