If you are looking for an unbiased, honest opinion for this chair, then this is where you will find my AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair review.
Throughout this article, I will be doing some thorough research regarding this product, answering the many questions you may or may not have.
But the most important question is, will I purchase this chair to personally use myself or would I leave it in the ‘no good’ list?
I’m going to find the truth about this chair and give you my final recommendation, because frankly, there are too many people giving fake recommendations and steering people in the wrong direction.
Without further ado, let’s get right into it.
Product name: AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair
Weight: 29.8 pounds
Upholstery: Black bonded leather
Weight capacity: 225 pound maximum weight allowed
Dimensions: 27 x 25.8 x 39.2 inches
Guarantee: 1 year limited warranty
The AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair is simply that, a basic chair for all your office needs. Hence where it got the ‘basic’ name from. But is it REALLY basic? No it isn’t.
The modernized look and sophisticated appearance of this chair gives the room a professional look. Similar to the mesh-back mesh chair by Amazon, this one is actually better in my opinion.
It also has a fully adjustable seat, so you can keep it up or down, while unlatching the lever and leaning back on the chair as you take a break from your work.
You can also rock back and forth, or leave it sitting straight up for a comfortable seating position as you work on valuable projects.
What Ultimate Benefits Does This Product Provide?
I find that this chair has a sophisticated appearance while the rocking feature is something that makes this chair stand out from the crowd.
The manufacturer have gone out of their way to make it fully adjustable, where other black leather chairs will just sit straight up and down.
I have personally got a chair similar to this that includes the control lever, and I can tell you that it is good to use when facing away from your desk to relax, then sit up and lock it back into place when you want to work again.
Pricing & Purchase Details
This chair is under $80 and now available from Amazon.com. This includes shipping at no extra cost and a limited 1 year warranty where you can get it repaired, or a full refund if you decide you don’t want this product anymore.
It’s also been created and designed by Amazon themselves, so you know you can trust the brand in the first place.
Who Is It For?
Because it has a basic design but upholstered with black leather and containing the bonded padded areas for your back, I would say that this chair will work perfect for a home office owner, computer gamer or even someone that has to sit down for 8 hours a day.
If you are shorter than 6 ft, and weigh less than 225 pounds then this is definitely for you.
Pros and Cons
- It has a basic design but contains hidden features such as the rocking option and padded areas, making it work very well for anyone that needs a chair to game or someone that works 8 hours+ a day
- The assembly instructions are very clear and easy to put together, which can be done in less than an hour
- This chair is cushy and surprisingly comfortable due to the padded areas
- Because it is upholstered in leather, it makes it really easy to clean!
- It makes a great choice for small people, something hard to find in an office chair of this kind
- Only available in 1 color
- It has a medium-height back, so it’s not good for tall people, making it hard for anyone over 6 ft to get comfortable
- After a while the padding can start to flatten and not be as comfortable as it use to feel
- It’s rather inexpensive, so it won’t last you for years to come, it might stay intact but it’s not going to be the same quality as when you first received it (it’s in the price range of $60 to $80, that’s what you would expect for a chair at this price)
Do I Recommend This Chair?
If you are under 225 pounds and not over 6 ft tall, and you don’t mind spending roughly $70 on a basic chair (yet still containing nice features other chairs simply don’t have) then I would recommend this chair to you.
And as long as you realize that it is not the highest quality chair out there and know it won’t keep the cushioned comfort forever then it might also be something to consider.
However, if you are wanting a comfortable chair that’s going to last you many years to come then the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair isn’t for you.
Would I Personally Use It?
It’s a solid and sturdy chair under $100, I already have a rocking chair similar to this and for that reason alone, I wouldn’t mind another one containing this awesome feature.
So yes, I would use it myself.
My Final Opinion
I would go as far to say this chair is a good choice for someone looking for another basic, black leather chair but want some added ‘secret’ features that others don’t contain.
Or if you have back pain with your current office chair then this is definitely something to consider, not to mention that it is a great choice for small people who struggle to find chairs of this sort that they can fit comfortably.
I also find that you can sit for hours in this chair and not get pains or aches.
As you will know, if you are an avid office chair user, that finding a chair to fit perfectly while keeping you pain free is not always easy to find.
For those reasons alone, and for the reasons I have outlined above, I’m going to say that this chair is highly recommended!
As long as your taking into consideration that you aren’t over 6 ft tall and over 225 pounds.
