Pros: Got it for $70. For being so much cheaper, it's worth some of the trouble that I had to go through. It's an upgrade from the taskchair that used to sit at my desk in a few aspects (mid-back size, leather, etc).
Cons: Would have absolutely returned if I had to buy it at the full price. Pieces didn't seem measured to fit properly towards the end. Took an extra (male) pair of hands to put together. Supposed to have a pretty neat tilt, but the knob is either stuck or the chair's tilt is very weak, almost nonexistant. The back is extra-stiff. There is absolutely no give, and the chair would be so much better with a few degrees added to the angle that the seat and the chair's back come together as to support a very slight backwards lean.
Other Thoughts: I absolutely could not build this chair on my own. It took an extra strong pair of arms to muscle the chair into the proper position in order to apply some of the final screws, as if some of the holes were misaligned, or improperly measured. There was no kind of finish on the drilling through leather and padding (ex. stitching so that the hole is fully exposed, I actually had to dig through some of the padding to find the hole to put the screw through on more than a couple instances), so getting the screws to line up into the holes in the arms through into the actual chair was a nightmare. (Did I mention that the holes don't all line up when partially secured?) I honestly considered testing the screws used to build this chair on a higher-quality one that was missing a few of its own, but my laziness metre was off the charts the afternoon I started building.
I'm very easy to please though, so after all's said and done, I'm fairly satisfied with my upgrade at 1/3 of the original price.
