They still are now, price in deal probably include P&P.

I've gone one of these, had it for almost 3 years, no problems at all apart from the occasional squeek!

Would recommend getting one with a better quality seat cushion if you're going to be using it everyday for long periods.
Buy one and put your feet up on the other. (Like most managers do)

Is it really firm/uncomfortable?
Few leather faced managers round here....
These won't be good quality but frankly almost no office chairs between £20-200 are of "good quality." There are only two types of office chairs they make - cheap nasty junk or £500+ chairs that last at least ten years (e.g. Herman Miller, et al).

If you're going to buy a cheap chair then make sure it is a REALLY cheap chair like these are. At least then you won't feel bad after throwing them in a skip after less than two years.

Also note that typically you should add 25% to your weight when selecting a chair (see maximum weight). So if you weight 14 st you should be buying a 17.5 st chair. The reason for this is that while the constant load on the chair will be your body weight, the chair has to eat "shocks" like sitting down on it, playing with the air lift, and such.

This chair has a 17 st lift therefore if you weight more than 13.5 st then beware that you might get less "life" out of the chair before it fails/breaks.

Thanks for these comments, they were very helpful. My main work chair needs upgrading/replacing but as I'm in it for really long periods comfort is a real issue so will pass on this deal. Seems like a good price for home maybe when the chair isn't going to be hammered everyday.

I have 3 £50 chairs, I use one, my father uses one and my brother uses one. We are only considering changing them after 4 years. I have no idea what other people do but ours don't seem to wear out that quickly despite heavy usage.
I've had a few chairs over the years, nothing wrong with a cheap chair as such only that for me, the cushioning for your bum tends to wear out quickly and they weren't as comfortable as new a short time after. So its a matter of do you go cheap and just replace them as necessary or go the other route and buy expensive in the hope you are getting better value in the long run.

If you try out some of the more expensive chairs too you'll notice the difference immediately. Its not surprising when you look at the construction details of some of the cheaper chairs. Sometimes the bum insert can be really poor quality foam. I remember one chair where after a few months it was like sitting on the plywood underneath.
I'd suggest that these are fine, but obviously if you can afford a few hundred quid, you'll get a stronger, better made, more comfortable chair. If it falls apart in a week, that's what warranties are for.

Great timing for me. My chair has just broken. These will actually be a step up compared to the £20 chairs we had previously!

How many hours a day do you spend in it? How many days a week? People's usage varies greatly. Just like owning a car, some people do 100,000 miles in a year, others do less than a tenth of that.

Also if you're a tall dude your chairs will last less long than if you're a petite women; just a factor of weight and time.

We bought very similar item from Viking. Leather faced so I was a bit dubious about how long the leather would last. Paid around £30 at that time, so this looks like a similar deal


We have now had it over 8yrs. It is not used full time during the day, just every evening and weekends, there is always one of us at the PC.

Really pleased with mine and even if it only lasted 5 yrs, would rather buy several of them than one costing hundreds. Also I would probably get fed up with design / colour of one t hat lasted too long.

Nice to have a change when I want, without feeling the guilt of hundreds spent on an item, can happily then go to a charity shop

Still looks and feels good
There is a reason these are cheap, they are useless, they will break within a few weeks. There is no reinforcement in the arms, its just a few metal washers cast in plastic where the arm fastens to the seat and back, so if you lean back alot and dont weigh 6 stone or less these will break in no time. They also start to drop height on their own too, and also become wobbly over time, no tightening of screws helps.
Cold! only worth around £20 each

6 stone, ha. I wish

Nobody in our house under 12 stone

All still works perfectly

BTW, I don't work for them

I'd say around 4-8 hours a day, my father and brother are large builds. I'm of an average build.

Btw I'm not saying these are good or not I was just making a point. I would try these out before buying of course...

I am in the market for a chair, I use for most of the day Mon - Fri (so say 6 - 7 hrs a day). I need something with good back support and arm rests. The current one has lasted me over 12yrs and it was second hand when I got it (wouldn't mind another - but I don't know where it originally came from).

Anyone able to recommend good places to look for something decent and sturdy. Obviously I would like to try before I buy. I don't think I want these chairs. I'd prefer a fabric finish than faux leather.

Fabric would look grubby inside 2 yrs IMO

That's why I chose leather one. leather looks more businesslike as well (I used to,occasionally have clients visit my office)
What is the chopping board like? It could be a nasty white market job - not exactly a tempter if it is!

Good post though - £25 chair will beat my dining chair i'm using at the moment. Been meaning to do this for ages.
Not the best quality but ok for office spares
Voted cold, as they normally are around £30 so not saving much for having to get 2

i got the malaga chair from viking direct about 3 years ago and its still going good apart from the cushion for the bottom is no good, but expected as it been used on a regular basis.

These chair are cheap but not all are necessarily poorly made that they will break within 2 years. Yes the quality might degrade after 3 years of heavy use but what you expect for £30.
Don't get me wrong iglimpse, I am not criticising your previous purchase decisions.

Personally I don't like faux leather chairs, I am not overally concerned about image either and, as long as my son does not go near it I should be able to keep it relatively UN-grubby.

I need a chair that will be comfortable and sturdy as I use one for extended periods of time for work, so, again, if any one has any recommendations - I will be grateful.

wouldn't buy from staples due to the amount of crap they send to me in the mail after i placed one order with them, which was cancelled i might add

if you make an account expect crap in the post even when you tell them not to several times
Cold.
"Hourly use: 5-8 hours", is that a week or a month?! The back doesn't even move (looks like the whole thing just tilts slightly), the plastic is bound to be sweaty in summer too. Even Ikea could come up with something better than this.

For £27 each, it might be worth buying for employees you want to get rid of

£500 for a chair? No thanks I sit in it for about 20 minutes a day to check emails etc. Even if it does only last 2 years at least I'll have another.
doesnt seem that great, its the old bogof but twice the price deal. i only want one for my retro games room but id want to be paying £25 delivered tops.

Same here!

One such item I received is a £10 off with £40 spend, which I'm not going to use. It's single use and says 'for recipient only', but if anyone would like to give it a try and put it towards these chairs (instead of the £5 off code), then let me know and I will PM it to you.
I ALSO HAVE A £10 OFF A £40 SPEND CODE if anyone wants it - First to PM me gets it

The chopping board set looks rather nice! ;

[image missing]



Doubt you can get the chopping board set AND use the £10 off though!?

I would avoid these chairs personally. The handles are made out of plastic and they attach the back to the seat part.

If you lean back while sitting down pressure is put on the plastic handles and it doesn't take a huge amount of leaning back to break them!

Personally, I spend about £90 in an ex-catalogue store and got a solid chair with thick padding and metal, leather topped, handles so this doesn't happen!
I'd rather spend £50 on an ikea chair personally...
Total cost is £61.49 not £54.99
