When assembled, this entry level office chair is really much nicer than the typical entry level office chair. The "vegan leather" is very soft and smooth. The padding in the chair is very comfortable and the chair travels up and down very smoothly and easily. However, the chair does not tilt back at all - it is at a 90 degree angle and not going anywhere. So, if you like a tilt to the back of your chair you will not want this chair.
On the whole, this chair was very easy to put together until I got to the last step. After I spread out the parts I timed how long it would take to actually build the chair. After 20 minutes I was all done except for attaching the back of the chair.

I have included two pictures of the problem.
To fix the problem, I took off the base plate and slid it as far from the where the arm that holds the chair back attaches and reattached it. Both chair back screws did fit - but both are certainly cross-threaded because I couldn't get them into the holes at the correct perpendicular angle. I had a very hard time getting the last screw in. It is most certainly not coming back out again. Having to re-attach the base plate and then fighting with the screws added an extra 20 minutes to what should have been a 25 minute build time.
I rate this chair 4 stars out of 5. I am taking off a star because of the unnecessarily difficult build.

Note: I received a sample chair through the Amazon Vine program so that I could write an honest review.
