Topstar Ergo Point SY Swivel Chair : Firm, strong, sensible chair

This arrived promptly and was straightforward to assemble. In my opinion the parts are well engineered and the assembled chair is far more stable than the old one it replaced. As well as the usual adjustments for height and position of backrest, i particularly like the fact that the arm rests can be raised or lowered.

Great chair and fast delivery. Waited to see if this chair would make an appearance in the black friday sale. And as luck would have it – it did. Arrived this afternoon a couple of days ahead of schedule and it fitted together in less than ten minutes. Excellent german engineering and quality of components. And i can report that it is an excellent study chair, after an hour it feels great on the back and the padding on the basis is comfortable.

Very comfortable, great quality chair. This is a really good quality chair, sturdy and comfortable with great back support. Really easy to put together and adjust. Here are the specifications for the Topstar Ergo Point SY Swivel Chair:

  • Swivel chair with a new backrest concept for a unique freedom of movement
  • High and ergonomically contour-shaped backrest with moulding in the area of the lumbar vertebra to support the spinal column optimal
  • Intervertebral discs seat
  • Syncro-mechanism
  • Black polyamide base

Possibly the best treat i have ever bought for my own rear. Really pleased with this chair. Initially i was unsure how i would find this chair (being almost 20 stone in weight) as i have had many chairs that were either too uncomfortable, or unsuitable for my size. The chair itself is a good seating position, and looks even better that the picture does. It goes together really easily (i am partially sighted, so these things always pose a bit of a challenge), and i had it together in about 15 minutes. I would imagine someone that can actually read the instructions would be quicker than that. :-)i wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this chair to people in need of something that will provide a steady, comfortable chair. Having seen some other reviews mention the arm rests being a bit wobbly, this is actually part of the design, and is just something that you have to put up with. It simply means there is a few millimetres of ‘give’ in the arms, and in no way impacts their use.

Mediocre product redeemed by an excellent customer service from amazon. . The chair seemed to be of a respectable built quality on removal from the box, however the acid test of my sitting in it left me feeling it lacked the sturdiness which the individual parts had hinted at. Like another customer has previously mentioned, the arms wobbled a great deal when rested on, and altering the seat height didn’t inspire one with confidence. Thankfully amazon offered me a refund, along with arranging for a courier to come and collect an item that i would have found inconvenient to return myself.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Comfortable but build quality isn’t great
  • Excellent chair, comfortable, and ergonomic!
  • Possibly the best treat I have ever bought for my own rear. 😉

My first consideration when purchasing a chair like this, or indeed anything that comes ‘flat packed’ is ease of build. I have wasted what seems like days of my life struggling in the past with all manner of flat packed joy. Never in school did i envisage that at 34 i wouldn’t be an astronaut, or a policeman, or a rock star but that instead, i would while away the hours building tenuously named scandinavian book shelves and losing my temper multiple times in the process. Thankfully though building this chair was a doddle, although not as easy as i’d hoped overall. The instructions are clear and the parts well machined. It’s just that parts of the chair are quite heavy, and manipulating them in to place was a little tricky alone. That aside, this is a hugely comfortable office / computer desk chair that is easy to set up, once built, exactly how you’d like. And let’s face it, if you’re spending serious money on a chair like this, that’s what matters. True, it lacks a headrest which for some might be annoying and a glaring omission.

Very comfortable, great quality chair. This is a really good quality chair, sturdy and comfortable with great back support. Really easy to put together and adjust.

    Ordered this with much excitement on finally finding a good priced office chair with lots of room. I ordered this with much excitement on finally finding a good priced office chair with lots of room. Although those two boxes are ticked, the chair itself is not the best in the world, but it does the job well. The seat itself looks like it is slightly bending downwards (from the back to the front). Although i hear this is to ensure good posture and a correct 90 degree knee position, it can be a bit uneasy. The only way i find it comfortable enough to spend long hour is to use the back rest, which keels backward and allow for more comfortable seating. The chair is definitely on my recommendations list. Lots of space for your elbows/arms to flail about (if that’s what you’re into). Also was not that hard to build. Just need a bit of patience and some space.

    Yes the arms which are adjustable can be a bit wobbly but then that nothing bad. Everything is solid and of a person over 100kg and back problems this is perfect. None of this managers chair rubbish. A proper office chair for the home. Oh another little gripe from the missus is that its a little too high even on its lowest setting so if your below 5’5″ your legs maybe dangling unless you have a foot stool. Pricey but there nothing that has adjustable back and height and all the rest in this price range.

    1. I’ve had my eye on this chair for a while, and seeing a dip in the price, i couldn’t resist and bought it. It’s a weighty item, and feels very solid to sit in. The arms move a bit, but on this kind of chair, that’s only to be expected (you don’t have to install them if you don’t want them). The seat is comfortable, the adjustment lets you find exactly the point that’s most comfortable, and the support of the back is excellent. I have a nice moulded cushion for the seat (as i tend to have back problems, and the right cushion shape makes a real difference, but the seat without cushion is pretty comfy for an office style chair. Overall, very happy with the buy, and i suspect it’ll be with me for many a year, like its predecessor.

    I had one of these @ work and it was very comfortable. Glad i found similar model from the same company. Seat height is very nice upto about 56cm (perfect). The arm rests are slightly loose (normal) but works well and so not too hard on your arms. I’m not a light person but it feels solid to me. I am very pleased with this product. 56 offer they had on, for the black version, at the time of purchase.

    Great chair for people with lower back problems, fully adjustable to find the correct and most relaxing position. Seems durable, will post again in a couple of months when i am sure about it.

    1. Comfortable but build quality isn’t great. I’m quite disappointed in the general loose feel of the chair. I’ve tightened every nut and screw, but the arms wobble about and the plastic cover on the back of the chair has a tendency to pop out of it’s socket when i sit down. I can only imagine that over time things will just get worse. On the plus side, the general seating position is comfortable and supports my back well.

    Excellent chair, comfortable, and ergonomic. This chair is a huge step-up over my old chair i had for years. It is great for my back,a s i sit quite a lot of hours in front of my pc, and thus this chair helps my back in sitting up-right. Assembly was extremely easy, with instructions provided – it took around 10 minutes to full assemble. The functions of the chair are good and sturdy too. -there’s a leaver for tilting both the back and front of the chair (this means both the part where your legs are resting and your back) – this leaver controls both of them, and they can’t be independently adjusted either. -there’s a leaver for the height-the back of the chair can be raised or lowered manually by hand-the arm rests can be adjusted independentlymy only complaint of this chair is the wheels seem a little stiff to roll freely, but i think over time that will change. I should also note that this chair will appear small, and is made for medium to small people. Larger people will find this chair a bit too small for them – this includes sitting and back surface areas. I too, like other reviewers bought this whilst it was on sale during black friday for around £100.

    Fine chair, quickly delivered, and simple to construct. I purchased the chair during the recent ‘black friday’ promotions for gbp97. It arrived promptly despite choosing free delivery. At that price it is amazing value. The instructions were clear and i was able to construct the chair quickly without any assistance (all necessary tools supplied). The chair is comfortable and fits my 6ft 2inch frame well. All the adjustments work as expected and the overall feel of the chair is ‘well made’. The chair was as described and i am very pleased with it.

    1. Bought during ‘black friday’ deals for just a little short of £100. Setup the chair in a few minutes, the instructions are largely based on illustrations, however ample for putting it together. The chair height and incline is easy to adjust and the seat comfortable. My only gripe was related to packaging/delivery: the cardboard box containing the item had opened during transit and the plastic casing on the chair backing had a small but noticeable crack. Some of the card board mountings were not used at all, so not all the items in the box were fully secured.

    Firm, strong, sensible chair. Topstar epo20xbc0e ergo point sy swivel chair with free moveable backrest – blackfelt a bit risky buying an important office chair online, but glad i did, at black friday sale price of £97. I found the seat too hard at first, but making it level at 90 degrees helped soften the pressure, somehow, and fine since. Pleased with purchase, don’t think would get this quality in the high street for the price paid. Lowest seat position from ground to top front of seat is 18. The back is very firm, too, but i find it supportive.

    1. My first consideration when purchasing a chair like this, or indeed anything that comes “flat packed” is ease of build. I have wasted what seems like days of my life struggling in the past with all manner of flat packed joy. Never in school did i envisage that at 34 i wouldn’t be an astronaut, or a policeman, or a rock star but that instead, i would while away the hours building tenuously named scandinavian book shelves and losing my temper multiple times in the process. Thankfully though building this chair was a doddle, although not as easy as i’d hoped overall. The instructions are clear and the parts well machined. It’s just that parts of the chair are quite heavy, and manipulating them in to place was a little tricky alone.

  18. Although i didn’t assemble it myself, it seemed easily done. I love the free arm movement the design allows, as it reduces stiffness and gives greater ease in doing activities. I found the back a little stiff to lift up and there was no wheel or lever for this, so it has the potential to slip eventually. The forward/backward movement is excellent and with the lever you can lock it in pretty much any position you want. My only concern is the lack of a headrest, as i do like my headrests.
