I’m not interested in ‘bad’ chairs that’s going to break within the first few months of purchase and I bet you aren’t either. It is only necessary to review these chairs and provide my honest opinion.
If you want to know if this chair is actually worth getting or a complete waste of money, I will be thoroughly researching this office chair and writing down my findings in this article. Enjoy!
Product Name: Alera Neratoli Mid-Back Swivel Tilt Chair
Weight: 47.3 Pounds
Colors: Black, red, white
Weight Capacity: 225 pounds
Dimensions: 34.8 x 15.9 x 25.8 inches
Waterfall-Styled Seat: Yes

Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
This chair has a contemporary look, beautifully upholstered in faux leather and surprisingly comfortable considering the padding has a slim profile.
The waterfall-styled seat actually helps reduce stress on the back of your knees, helping with blood circulation so you won’t start feeling restless.
This chair also contains padded armrests, causing less stress on your arms, meaning no aches or pains
What Ultimate Benefits Does This Product Provide?
The waterfall seat that this chair has works brilliantly and something that makes this chair stand out from the crowd.
And because the slim padding of this chair doesn’t look like it will be that comfortable, it is actually very soft, making it great to sit on (however only for short periods).
The bottom of this chair contains a 5-star base, causing extraordinary mobility.
Pricing & Purchase Details
The Alera Neratoli Mid-Back Swivel Tilt Chair is now available on Amazon.com, this includes a 5 year limited warranty. The price varies between $130 and $160 and comes with free shipping.
The colors will not play a part in the price, so you can choose one that fits you best.
Who This Chair Is For
Because this chair is beautifully presented in a contemporary design, I would say this chair would work wonders in a modernized office or apartment.
This chair does make a perfect decoration too.
Even if you work from home and want something on the ‘higher quality’ side and don’t mind spending roughly $150 then this would also work for you.
Who This Chair Is NOT For
It is not a good idea for students that want to get some homework done. Due to it being on the pricier side, it is a lot more expensive than other chairs and will probably be too pricey for a student.
Pros and Cons
- What struck me the most was actually the contemporary design, good for someone who prefers to go ‘new school’
- The colors that this chair comes with, which also includes faux leather is something not a lot of other chairs come with. These include black, red and white
- Even with the slim profile, it is still comfortable and the arm rests provide great support
- It is actually high quality and not going to break or wear down in the first year
- It’s really easy to clean, due to this chair been upholstered in a leather material
- The 5 year limited warranty was something that really stood out from other chairs too
- Even though it’s comfortable enough and not going to give you aches or pains, it is not the most comfortable seat on the market if you want to sit for long periods (especially for the price you pay)
- You can not return this chair after you have assembled it
Do I Recommend This Chair?
Actually, after a lot of thought regarding this chair, I would not recommend it. It has NO lower back support, the padding is slim and will eventually get flatter, resulting in absolutely no cushioning.
If you ask me, I have no idea how it received this many stars on Amazon.com.
The only time I would recommend this chair is if you are only wanting to sit in it for 1 -2 hours a day, because it is in fact, a great looking chair and it definitely looks more expensive than the actual price.
It will also work perfectly for a decoration and highly recommended for that.
Other than that, this chair is bad for sitting down for 8 hours a day and not recommended for that sort of thing.
There is a chair that will ACTUALLY be comfortable enough to sit in all day without giving you aches or pains.
However it is not going to look as expensive as the Altero and may not be as high quality but it IS much cheaper, the Serta Executive Chair is still my number one recommendation.
There’s actually a chair still cheaper than that and more suited for you if you prefer to stay with the leather upholstery that this chair offers, then the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair might be more your cup of tea.
My Final Opinion
Even though this chair offers a limited 5 year warranty, I tend to find that once it is assembled and you want a full refund, the manufacturers won’t want anything to do with it.
For that alone, is definitely bad customer service and a good reason to stay away from them.
It is a great looking chair and makes a perfect decoration while being comfortable enough to sit in for 1-2 hours a day.
Otherwise I wouldn’t bother with this chair, it is way too expensive and a bad idea if you want a chair to sit in for hours on end, which is what an office chair should be designed for in the first place.
Anyway, let’s wrap it up!
For an awesome decoration and if you don’t plan on sitting in it all day then this chair is highly recommended for you!
If you want more of a comfortable chair to sit in all day without giving you aches or pains, then I would rather you check out my full review of the Serta Executive Chair. <== A better choice for someone who sits down for long periods of time
Well I guess that’s all from me for now and hopefully this Alera Neratoli Mid-Back Swivel Tilt Chair review has given you all the information you need.
So what do you think…is this chair worth it?
