Overall, I am rather impressed by chair, ESPECIALLY for the price.
For context: I'm mid 20's, 6'00", 170 lbs. I was first introduced to ergonomic chairs at my previous job. I would often work 12+ hour shifts, almost entirely seated.
Initially, I frequently experienced pain in my lower back & tailbone, until we got an ergo chair (an Ergo Human, which sells for over $600 almost everywhere). From that point forward, I had NO pain or soreness, regardless of my shift length. Now that I'm a student again, & in need of a desk chair that will be used for long stretches of time, I knew I had no choice but to get an ergo chair.
After about a few 6-8 hour stretches, I can confidently say this $130 investment has been quite impressive. It is supportive while still distributing your weight evenly, which means I have not experienced any tailbone soreness. The lumbar is a little low on my back, even at full height, but it's close enough to still be comfortable and supportive. I don't really use the armrests much, as my arms are usually on/above the desk, but they were comfortable enough when I tried them out.
Now, it does have its flaws. I find the base too be too short, as my knees extend significantly beyond the drop-off. To the best of my knowledge there is no way to adjust the base depth, slide the backrest further back, or order the chair in a larger size.
Next, and most importantly, the is the headrest. Not only was it kind of a pain in the butt to get it on, but it is too short to be useful. When I lean back just a little, the lower edge digs into my neck & shoulders. When I try to recline & actually rest my head on it, it only hits my neck, tilting my head upwards. Obviously, this is not comfortable. I would like to see Staples incorporate more than the current 3 positions for the headrest in the future.
Ok, so all those complaints, yet still 4 stars, why? Simply because of the price point. I included all that context to make this very clear: This chair actually competes with ones 4-5 times its price. Of course, the Ergo Human one was a bit nicer, but not even close to $500 nicer.

Overall, buy it. It's worth the risk, because if you don't like this chair, the next option is going to be at least $200-$300 more. Probability says you'll be more than happy with it though.

Really liked this chair and had very high hopes for it when I FIRST bought it. While putting together, the mesh BACK portion on the edges were scuffed from packing and ripping/separating already. (at that point I knew I had made a bad buy, but gave it a chance!) Took JUST the BACK portion back to staples, no problem and swapped out another BACK to finish putting together. Bought Square Trade for $30 while there in case after a year or so totally fall apart. (still have to deal with that refund if possible)
Wellllll... it fell apart within 2 months! I kind of figured it would anyways.
The SEAT this time. On the side edges where the mesh rolls into the plastic edge of the chair. Starts FRAYING, ripping and then ultimately the entire seat sags... be warned there are metal parts etc directly under that mesh. any further or one more sit down and you WILL GET HURT DOWN THERE! SO immediately took back no problems refunded my cash.
If one was to accidentally CUT a slit down the middle of these type of mesh chairs, they become useless. But this chair failed from just getting up and down repeatedly during the day.

The headrest was fine, you have to pivot it to what you like...it was a concern of being uncomfortable. The seat sits directly straight up..uncomfortable. You have to use the lever under seat to set it to lean back some..and also to disable reclining etc. the arm rests are adjustable for making sliding under desk for more office room was nice. The lumbar was nice...but that was obviously needed for some sort of support there anyways.

overall really liked this new kind of seating, but it just isn't any good for prime time at all... the $600 version may be...but not risking that one either. The mesh BACK only chairs may be fine...but the MESH SEAT...no.
Hope this helps! ; )

Might check out the TEMPERPEDIC overpriced chairs. The seats cushions in all the other office chairs only last less than year before they flatten out and your bottom hurts. get the SQUARE TRADE so when that happens, you can get a NEW chair...kinda like free lifetime brakes for your car!

        I have had the chair for a couple weeks and sit in it for 7+ hours per day and my back never tires or hurts; the support is great. The chair adjusts in height and rocks if you want. Great purchase and well worth the money.

        I have finally found a comfortable desk chair. I have chronic lower back problems and find sitting for long periods of time causes pain. This chair allows me to sit longer (plus it stays cooler than my leather chair)

        I fell in love with this chair in the store. I like a chair that has good back support and makes you sit with better posture. This one does that.
