I just bought this Torrent chair yesterday after going into the store to find something they had in stock. I'm not sure if I would have bought this after reading some of the comments about difficulties encountered during the assembly of the chair. I am a cabinetmaker by trade and have been in construction for more than 30 years. I am very mechanically inclined and I had problems assembling this chair. I got it assembled but I can see where the average person would struggle to do so.
Quality control was obviously not used during the manufacturing process. A good company will occasionally assemble their own product to make sure their tolerances are adhered to. The main problem with this chair is the positioning of the attachment holes for both the seat (to the metal base) and the support arm for the back of the chair. The holes were drilled in a manner that causes the metal plates for the two pieces to overlap. Since (according to the instructions) the seat is attached first, this causes the plate for the back to overlap by about ¼". This causes the holes for the arms to be out of alignment and makes it quite difficult to assemble the chair. I read one other persons review and he said he heard cracking sounds while tightening the bolts. I'm sure this was from trying to tighten the plates, but instead was pulling the embedded anchors out of the wood seat component. I only pulled my bolts snug, but this could cause problems in the future. Because of the gap due to the plates overlapping, it is impossible to pull the plate (for the chair back) tight against the wood. This could lead to failure in the future. It is a design and manufacturing flaw that needs to be corrected.
Brush up on your four letter words if you buy this chair.

Very Happy!

Comments about Staples® Torrent™ Bonded Leather Managers Chair, Black:

I had previously looked at the office chairs at Staples and couldn't find what I needed. I had decided to order my chair online from another company, I even put it in my cart, then I needed to go to Staples to get some ink for my printer. I went to the office furniture in the back to look at the chairs again. I sat in two chairs and the second chair was the Staples Torrent Bonded Leather Managers Chair. It fits like a glove, it is very comfortable, the arms lift up if you need a little more room or need to get closer to your desk or table, the seat is wide and deep and I could spend at least 4 hours in the chair and not have a problem, plus the price was right. I was getting ready to spend $300 dollars for the chair online and the Staples chair was just shy of $100 on sale. This is a good chair for someone 300lbs or less and about 6' tall. The salesperson was very helpful and I will comeback for more furniture and chairs from Staples.

Expensive for what it really offers.

Comments about Staples® Torrent™ Bonded Leather Managers Chair, Black:

This is a good looking chair. But, for the price, it's a bit expensive.
Set up is defiantly a 2 person job. But, pretty easy. Directions were easy to follow.

Likes:
The feel of the leather. Very soft, yet sturdy.
Looks high quality.
Arms can be lifted.
Arm rests are padded well.
Head-rest is comfortable.
Casters move smoothly and easily (Even on carpet.)

Dislikes:
Seat of chair is not padded well. 2 Months of use and already pretty flattened.
Chair only locks in 2 positions. Rocking and Straight up. There is no in-between.
Adjustment knobs are not easily accessible. Have to lean forward or to the side to access. Hard to adjust.
Lumbar support is very minimal. Not much to it.

This chair is not for a little person. Definitely a chair for a bigger and taller person.
All in all it's an OK chair, but I would not purchase again for an all day work chair.

Sharp, comfortable chair

Comments about Staples® Torrent™ Bonded Leather Managers Chair, Black:

I'm only five days in, but so far it has made the time at my computer much more comfortable. Let me start by saying don't be scared off by the horror stories around assembling this chair. If you change the order of the steps as per the video put together by Ronsanut you will be fine and have it put together without difficulty in no time.

The short of it (sans video) is to change the order of the assembly instructions to 1,2,4,6, 3,5,7,8. You have to leave the screws that connect the back of the chair to the seat (via a plate that attaches to the bottom of seat with four screws) loose until you get the arms on, then tighten down the screws on that plate.

The plate for the adjuster (originally step three, now step five) goes on top of the plate for attaching the back to the seat. It may seem like it won't work, but it does. Just gradually tighten down all your screws a little at a time.

Now, on to the chair itself. I really am enjoying it. I am a 5'10" female who spends endless hours at my home computer every day for my work. There is ample padding in the seat and back. My bum never gets achy or tired as it did previously. There is decent lumbar support. I'm not sure I like the way the back sort of curves forward at the neck, but I only notice it when I'm sitting very straight upright. While I am working, I don't tend to notice it. The arms are nicely padded and do swing up and out of the way which is a super bonus, as I work in a small workspace in the corner at a computer armoire. I like that I can swing up the arm to get in and out of the chair. The movement of the arms is kind of stiff as yet, but that may change. This way they do stay where you put them.

It is a bonded leather chair, but I don't anticipate that to be a problem. (I owned a bonded leather living room chair and sofa that stood up well to 10 years of use and abuse.)

It is nice looking, feels sturdy, odorless, doesn't make any squeaking noises, moves fairly well on carpet, and is an attractive addition to my home office space. I bought it on sale; it was $50 off and I feel like it is a nice chair for the money.

Torrent Office Chair

By Ran FORTRAN

Comments about Staples® Torrent™ Bonded Leather Managers Chair, Black:

A <$60 computer chair lasts longer than fresh cheese, but not that much longer. After a year or two, you have a trip to the landfill depositing your cheap chair.

Reaching that point, again, I decided to go with a more expensive model. This chair was on sale and looked to be more comfortable than the leaning to one side cheapie that was bound for the dump.

As always, assembly required. I dug out my tool box, but did not need it. The little allen wrench included was the only tool needed. The instructions were logical and easy to follow. The English instructions were not peppered with confusing and at times humorous idiomatic phrase errors from translation.

There were problems with some holes where pieces meet not lining up. Steel will flex to some degree. Pressure applied never in excess until slipping a bold through did the trick. Nothing was damaged as a result.

Once assembled the chair was found to be very comfortable. The flip up arm rests are a plus. My wife pulls them up. I push them down. Gamers and others who spend a lot of time at keyboard and screen should consider this chair.
