Great chair for hot summers!
I live in Texas where even the AC runs a long time to beat the summer heat. I opted for a mesh back chair so I could have better airflow behind my back when I turn on the fan. My leather chair used to make my back all sweaty, so this chair is very breathable. Setup was simple for me, took me 20 minutes from start to finish. I ordered the leather bottom and it's faux leather, but it's very comfortable. The mesh back seems durable and will last a while. The arm rests can swing up and out of the way if you so desire. The curved mesh back also makes me sit up straight. It supports my lower back and lumber; therefore, forcing me to practice good posture. I have uploaded pictures for your viewing, if you like please hit the 'Helpful' button!
Those that order this chair and are missing instructions for setup, I have also uploaded the picture

Comfy, sturdy, functional, economical.
Very sturdy chair that is a perfect size for me even as a 6'3", 280lb man. I have no problems reclining back on this, I definitely don't feel like it's going to dump me at any moment, like with some other chairs. Super comfortable. Armrests fold up if you need that, but I like them down. I just finished doing 5 hours of translation work in this chair and I could sit here for 5 more with how comfy it is. Definitely the best chair for the price.

Good for the price
We looked for chairs to be comfortable cost efficient. So, these succeeded.
+ The base is leather, which is hard to tell in the picture.
+ It does make you sit up straight and supports your back, which is what I really wanted.
- Arm height is not adjustable. Arms pivot so you can put them up if you don't want to use them, but you can't make them taller or shorter.
- Only adjustable pieces are: height of chair, and tension of sway.
+ Mesh back is super comfortable.
+ There are only 6 pieces. it is straight forward. The package of screws is well-labeled
- The arms are packed pivoted up, so it was a tad confusing which screw holes attached to the back.
- One of the joints don't line up perfectly (see picture), so it took a bit of work to get both to line up at the same time.
Would I buy it again? Yes. They are good for our small office for the price. But for my office chair at home, I would look for something more adjustable.

Found a great bargin!
Best chair value I could find on the web. I already had a Lexmod chair that I paid $125 for that looked exactly like this Flash furniture chair. The reason for the similarity is that they are the same chairs, except I got the Flash furniture chair for $74. I still had the directions for my $125 Lexmod version, same as Flash. The chair itself is super. It is very comfortable and quite sturdy for a chair this price. I'm 6'3", and 270 LBS and it fits me fine.The fold up arms actually create more space. You won't feel cramped in this chair. I've destroyed numerous other office chairs because of my size. I feel as though these chairs will last for years. Best budget minded chair out there. Buy it from Flash Furniture and save big over Lexmod.

Comfortable - just advertised features were short of expectations. Slightly above "okay"
I would like to rate it at 3.5 stars ... somewhere between "Its okay" and "I like it". First, the positives ... the chair is comfortable. And, I' a 6'2" person, and this chair extends high enough to suit me well.
- the chair doesn't roll as freely as the cheaper Walmart chair does; additionally ... the bottoms is continuously spinning while you roll back, and it rolls back in an arch path - not a straight line. Kind of shocking for me ... at work, we are super spoiled with really nice chairs that look very similar to this ... it's an open graphics lab with 8 people ... we are constantly called over to another's workstation to provide feedback or whatever ... so we often push all the way across the room. You could never do that with this chair as it will not roll in a straight line. If you stay in one spot, this point is probably not that important to you.
- the arm rest do not adjust. they are set in one spot. Now, you can flip them out of the way ... and not have them at your side ... but they are not adjustable.
- concerning the "adjustable tilt" - I would not call this an "adjustable tilt" at all. You either lock the chair in the forward-most position ... or ... pull the lever out (leaving it out) to allow it to become somewhat rockable - as in back-and-forth rocking chair kind of action. Again, at work, our chairs allow one to "lock" the back of the chair at many different tilted positions - and then the whole seat area has a kind of tension rock action that returns to the locked position.
So ... it was not what I was expecting.
comfortable, cheap wheel coasters, doesn't roll very freely nor straight, allows a rocking action to it that opposes rocking when you lean forward at a desk to type ... but can push back away from the keyboard and rock. For the price, I give it a 3.5.

Recommend for a decent desk chair!
This chair is wonderful so far. Assembly was easy enough and took maybe around 20 min. The arm rests are a little shorter than I would like them, and even though you can move them up and down it isnt a vertical up and down to adjust to your height, it is a up and down like a car armrest that can be put straight up and out of the way. The other complaint I have is the back support. While it is there it isnt the best and is not an adjustable one so it isnt in the right spot for me personally.
For the price that I bought it at, it is definitely worth it! nice feel, very comfortable and looks pretty good too. The things that I have complaints about would be on a more expensive model and I got what I paid for, so I am very happy!
Update: I have had the chair for about 4 days now and it is already squeaking when I lean back. Still comfortable but kind of annoying...

Great home office chair!
The chair adjust fairly high similar to the expensive ones. The arms move upright for when I push in the chair at the end my working day in my home office/entertainment room. It conserves a lot of space. I work from home all week for 8-12 hrs a day. My back is doing well for almost 2 months (and many hurt my back). The back of the chair doesn't raise from the seat, and it hasn't been a problem for me and I'm 235lbs. It has a very good air spring like base so adjusting the height levels is very easy and convenient. For the price, I think it's a great buy.

Excellent chair, Excellent price!
It's an affordable gaming chair that super comfortable and highly adjustable! All my gamer friends (we are PC gamers) have all commented that they want one.The arm rests FOLD UP! This is the #1 comment everyone likes about this chair so you can slide your chair under the desk further when you want. I like that so I can have my knees pressed up against the underside of the desk and I can lean back making my legs do all the work - like a counter balance. Love it love it love it. Very comfortable.
The mount for the piston plate for the chair is SUPER sturdy. Not the walmart cheap type that gets loose after 6 months and starts making creeking sounds. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY AT WAL MART. This chair uses a sturdy support for the back-rest and has held up longer than any of my other chairs so far. No stupid ply-wood base in the seat either. Ply wood is weak and the screw holes fatigue inside the wood over time with the cheaper type from wal mart.
Only complaint (not really a complaint) I just wish I could release the back rest and lean back in the chair. I can obviously go up and down. I can lock the chair so it prevents you from leaning back and move the arm rests up and down. Thats all.
I suggest having a hammer drill ready with the hex bits ready and gently-torque those screws in a bit more than you could do with your arm.

Looks nice which is why I gave two stars instead of one but I wouldn't suggest buying this chair unless it's for decorative purposes. The armrests keep getting loose and I have to tighten them every 3-4 months. The chair isn't ergonomic at all. The seat itself isn't very well-cushioned and is rather uncomfortable without a pillow or some type of cusion. The back mesh doesn't provide any type of lumbar support despite the item's description.. it's actually rather uncomfortable to have my back against the chair so I have sit at the edge, and because of this I can't stand sitting in this chair for more than 2 or 3 hours at a time. If you're looking for a work or gaming chair I would advise you to look elsewhere.

Comfortable. I like the adjustable arms.
I used points to buy this chair on sale and I'm not complaining. The lumbar support is excellent even after several hours of sitting. The arms swing up and the back can be adjusted to stay in an upright position for typing. Pull the handle out and the chair will go back, and the tension can be adjusted by a knob below the seat. Seat height can be adjusted as with any other office chair. I got a good deal and I'm happy.
