5 out of 5 eggsNot the Comfy Chair?! Yes, the Comfy Chair.

Pros: Very solid construction, great aesthetics, very supportive and comfortable.

Cons: Realistically, none. I could wish for vibro-massage, a foot rest, cup holders, speaker mounts, and more but get real. Assembly instructions would have been nice, but a minor application of logic and a familiarity of putting together furniture kits made up for the lack of paperwork.

Other Thoughts: I'm a stout, thick dude - not really big nor tall but I like something that's going to last and this will be that chair that does.
Upon opening, I thought I had mistakenly purchased an old soviet tank. This thing is solid. The casters are your usual fare, but the base of the chair is made from incredibly thick gauge steel painted a matte black.
The seat is wwwiiidddeee and the cushion is dense, supportive and comfortable.
The arm width is adjustable during assembly so you can custom set it for your comfort and body type and the arms' height can be adjusted on-the-fly.
The back is nice and wide as well, with an adjustable lower-lumbar support. I do wish it was a bit higher or adjustable (even at my stubby height the back stops just above my shoulder blades), but I knew this was not a high back chair.
The center piston (the real crux of the chair) is fantastic. It comes fully depressed (shortest height) so once assembled, make sure you use the height adjustment handle to extent it to its maximum height (my feet no longer were touching the ground) then adjust for personal preference.
I really feel as if this chair will last until my death. I have no fear that the piston will over time loose its "umph" and slowly leak its compression and I end up with my knees around my ears.
If you want a long lasting, well built and yet somehow still comfortable chair, this is definitely the way to go.

5 out of 5 eggsStrong Design As Proclaimed

Pros: Chair design is well made, sturdy and strong built as described. Seat is soft but firm, which should outlast most other designs. Seat is also wider than expected, a good thing if you get tired of squeezing into an average cockpit type feel with cheaper designs. Armrests adjust to suit most anyone's taste. You can tell by the sheer weight of the chair itself that it is constructed with quality materials. I am very satisfied with the description vs what I received. Spot on construction.

Cons: Chair is a little pricey unless you can find it on special like I did with But, like the old saying you get what you pay for most of the time. I am happy with my investment.
