Had a few offices chairs, not worth the money for me.
Not too impressed with this chair. I've had a lot of office chairs before and was excited to get this one. Was disappointed with the build quality of this chair for the price. The arms and attachments are not of great quality. The covers that cover some of the bolts are beyond embarrassing, they barely fit and the screw is too big for the hole, really takes some encouragement to get in.
For the life of me, I can't get the hydraulics working. I've tried everything, and the levers just will not work, the instructions are useless for hydraulics. They just say 'set the hydraulics up'. Cheers. The plastic that covers the lever are so cheap, and do not align with the price bracket, they barely actually fit on the lever and I have no faith they'd even work if they hydraulics were actually working.
Noblechairs were highly recommended but from the first minute i'm really wishing I went with a different brand. They made be designed in the mighty Germany but they are built in China and that really shows. Disappointed.
Not suitable for anyone under 6ft tall

Every confidence that OCUK will sort this out and in turn get in touch to provide improved hydraulics for shorter people like myself. For now, want this review to stand out to warn others. I won't likely be able to use this chair without a foot rest or stand.
I am 5'7 and on the lowest high available, my feet are unable to touch the floor without big shoes on. So that means I can have my knees at right angle to relax and put least amount of pressure on my quads or knees. Called OCUK just now, and looks like they are all sitting on them, with coworker of my height in same position, unable to touch floor and legs dangling.
For a chair to call itself ergonomic it needs to hold the human body in a supported and relaxed position, not just look cool and be bucketed. My knees hurt a bit from gaming on it for 2 hours last night.
Good news is that this chair could be ideal, just need OCUK and NobleChairs to come out with a hydraulics that has a greater range of adjustment, supporting users who are 5 ft onwards.
Deserves 2.5 stars now, for tall people have nothing to complain about.
