hjh OFFICE : A true Racer now it has new wheels

It arrived on time and was easy to assemble. I purchased the chair just over 1 year ago. It arrived on time and was easy to assemble. Been enjoying it until a few weeks ago when the height just would not hold, the seat kept coming down, after a couple days of frustration i contacted the company and asked for help. They immediately sort it out by sending me a new gaslift free of charge and a link for instructions on how to fit it. :)i am very please with the chair and the customer service, and they deserve my extremely rare rating of 5*****.

After 5 years and its still feels good. Have to say, i’ve just read the reviews of this chair and unless the quality has gone recently i would recommend. Today, mid may 17 the gas cylinder has given up and i’ve made the slow drop to the floor, i checked to see when i purchased it and check it its under warranty only to find i actually purchased in 2012the fact that the chair has been used on a almost daily basis, shows limited signs of wear and the fact i thought it was only about a year old should stand testament to quality.

Well built, great design, fast delivery, simple construction, comfortable. All i expected from a german company and more. I have heard a few negative things about this chair, in previous reviews and would like to put a few of them straight. The castors are weight dependant, to prevent the chair moving unless a person is seated in it. So te comments about them being cheap and not working are incorrectthe chair not reclining far enough, what did you expect, horizontal, it reclines back at least 45 degrees, from vertical, that’s plentyit was incredibly easy to put together, took me less than 10 minutes. And no parts were missing or damaged, it was well packaged and in a1+ condition when i received it. Some have stated that theirs is already falling apart after only a short while. Well maybe they are try to force the castors to operate when they are not supposed to. Or they have exceeded it’s weight limit 100kg or a little over 220lbs. Here are the specifications for the hjh OFFICE:

  • Seat height adjustment with Toplift
  • Tilt mechanism, individually adjustable to the body weight
  • Thick seat and backrest upholstery, elaborately quilted
  • Stable curved armrests with upholstered cover

I bought this recently having read lots of reviews on lots of different chairs. In the end i plumped for this one. It was dispatched from germany by road, so it took about a week to get to me, but the tracking information the company provided was excellent and i knew where it was most of the time. Assembly was pretty simplistic, though the back is a bit tricky to get on without leaving the arms only loosely attached to the base. Once assembled it looked really nice. Though my partner cant stand ithowever, i’ve found that the base could use a bit more padding, because after an hour or so, i can start to feel the underside of the seat through the padding. It is certainly not luxurious and something you sink into. I also have an issue with the lumbar pad that pokes out from the back of the chair. I assume this is supposed to help, but for me, it has caused the nerves in the base of my spine (sciatic?) to get pinched after a while.

Great looking computer chair. Have had this product for a month. Bought for son in his bedroom and has added the wow factor. Comfortable to sit in, and as a teenager he is always on the pc or ps3, the chair also looks great. There is no head support but for the price this has worked out as a great buy. The base is nice and solid and the seat sits firmly on the top of the gas pole with no wobbling. Alloy arm rests add to the great look of the chair.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • after 5 years and its still feels good
  • Gorgeous leather chair
  • Excellent but change the wheels!

Beautiful and extremely comfy chair. This chair was delivered in the uk by dpd and i got a tracking number from the sellers, who are easily contactable by email. The seller communicated well with me and i knew when my chair was dispatched and i could track it. The chair itself is gorgeous, very very comfortable and wide enough for me to sit on comfortably. The arm-rests are essential (not optional) as they hold the seat and back together. Very easy to assemble, done in 10 minutes, no extra tools required. Well packaged, and in excellent condition. Would recommend for people who love to sit for hours at their computer.

Great product, good value for money. The item arrived quickly and before its expected date, great service from seller. Build quality seems pretty solid , have been using this daily for a week or so, with no squeaks or groans. Assembly was pretty straight forward with the chair supplied in about six major components and a bag of screws. Screws and holes all lined up, though a couple needed to be pushed in to the limit before they caught the thread inside the chair. Very comfy to use with plenty of back support, i work at a computer for several hours a day and its offering plenty of supportother sellers have mentioned the castors are not fantastic, i tend to agree. They seem solid but are so stiff from new they dont rotate very well. Not an earth shattering problem and nothing a spot of wd40 didnt sort outlast minor point, the small silver plastic covers that go over the screw holes once built, are prone to chipping round the edges if they go in at the wrong angle. Its only a tiny cosmetic issue though. In general i would recommend this chair to anyone looking for a stylish item at a great price.

One thought on “hjh OFFICE : A true Racer now it has new wheels

  1. Not bad, but i wouldn’t buy it again if i turned back time. . Fast delivery, decent quality product. While comfortable when you just sit in it for a minute, actually having no reclining whatsoever and the position it keeps you in is so rigidly straight up, that you will either slouch or hunch in a matter of minutes.

    Poor materials and ridiculous price. It’s okay–very comfortable for my son as a study chair. It looks classy, but is not well made. The arms–which hold it together–are made of plastic, though they look like metal. I don’t expect a long life from it. It was terribly, terribly hard to put together. I can’t see how it is worth either the £209 claimed as the rrp or even the current price of £72+. I got it for about half that, and that was too much.

    1. I bought this chair few years ago and i have been using it since. It looks nearly the same when i bought it. It very comfortable and solid,stiches are very well done. Padding in the arm rest and the sit might have went down slightly but i am not suprised after all that time of an everyday use.

    Bought this for my husband and thought i’d be nice and put it together for him while he’s away. Bought this for my husband and thought i’d be nice and put it together for him while he’s away with work. After attempting numerous acrobatic positions and quite probably defying the laws of physics on more than on occassion, i did (almost) succeed. As other reviewers have said, the wheels don’t actually spin so if you’re planning to ride this chair downhill then it’s not the one for you. As there are no hills in our house, i don’t think the husband will mind this too much. It looks good, it’s comfy, but the real question is, will it withstand repeated, extended gaming sessions or his reddit habit?.

    Used for a couple of months. Wobbly and tendency to tilt to one side.
