I got this about 5 months ago. I had a look for ages and all the ones on amazon were much the same so just went for this in the end.

At the time the colours available were all similar costs but I wanted a black, however now it looks like all other colours are a good bit cheaper so I may have sacrificed the colour and went for a cheaper one.

In terms of the chair, having not really had anything similar, I think it's fairly good quality. I use it for work mainly and gaming from time to time. It is comfortable, I don't use the lumbar support but I do use the head cushion. Reclines to almost flat and has a rocking function, which you can lock in place.

Only thing it doesn't have, is rotating arm rests although you can adjust the height. Not a problem for me. It also doesn't have a leg extension like some, not something I would have the need for personally.

For the money I think it's a decent chair compared to some that are 2 or 3x the cost. Time will tell whether it lasts. Probably start to see the material start to age soon but at the moment, it still looks like new after 5 months and many hundreds of hours sat on it.
I work on the same chair for work and back at home for some PC gaming, this chair is perfect:

Im a little tall so the higher back is perfect and really does support. very confortable too
If you can increase the budget, a 2nd hand herman miller aeron can work too - basically office chairs.

We have this too, its a good chair with a 10yr warranty!! Just don't be sucked in by the " gaming chairs" there's no such thing really, you're just paying over the odds for an office chair with a few cushions and fancy colours

100% gaming chairs a naff at best. YOu just need a good solid office chair that suits you and job done.

Also, TIL didnt know it was 10 year warrenty

Had this one for years, got it at a car boot sale for £5.

You cannot adjust the arm rest height, and the lumbar support is crap. For £150 I would want more.
