5.0 out of 5 stars | TVOS Review
After scouring the internet for recliners I kept coming back to this model. I don't perform impulse purchases without researching and reading the comments. So what I can offer from my experience is the following: A) Other people say this is difficult to assemble. Only took me 10 minutes tops. Very simple. Tools might be basic but that is why you have tools available at home that will make the process easier. B) Directions are difficult to read. It can be but this is not rocket science at all. There are literally two bolts and nut for the base of the chair. It can be a little tricky to align but not a deal breaker. The ottomon for the chair is simple - four bolts and insert the metal stem into the base. Very simple.. Now, I do understand if people who might be disabled or physically challenged might have difficulty. But for the average person shouldn't take long to assemble. Ten minute top C) For connecting the wires and vibrating. PEOPLE - read and listen up! This is not a deep tissue message unit. The information on the product states this. If you want one of those big fancy chairs that does this - spend more money and reserve your negative comments. For the most part, it vibrates and is lite but it is a nice option to have. One of the reasons why I went this route vs. the non-standard recliner. D) Comfort Cushy Chair - The chairs I have had in the past were your basic desk chair upright and cheap fabric. I wanted to spend a few more dollars on this for comfort. At first, I didn't really care for the chair but not I find it totally relaxing. Actually fell to sleep in the chair last night after a long week at work. Didn't expect this and had a nice snooze.. E) I love the swivel - smooth and quiet F) Only thing I would like to see in this model chair is height adjustment. My computer desk that I manufactured out of hard pipe desktop is a little higher than the chair. So I do have a couple of options is lower the desk to match height of the chair or look for a add on for the chair base to raise it higher. Not a real dealer breaker honestly because I still have options. G) The Smell - the first couple of days the smell was intense and found my eyes watering at times. After three days it was less noticeable and not has potent. From what I read others have used vinegar or fabreeze on the chair to lessen the smell. I really don't think you will need to go that far. Place the chair outside or in the garage when you leave for work. Let it sit to breath and bring back in. I didn't do this and left in my computer room. Again, after three days you hardly notice it. Would I buy this chair again? Probably - for the price, comfort, and style I am happy with my investment.

2.0 out of 5 stars | Great comfortable chair.
I love this chair. I'm a tall guy (6'6), and it's very comfortable. The massage and heat are perfect. The pleather quality is very good and hasn't peeled at all and is easy to clean. My only complaint is that it tends to constantly creep towards the wall, and I have to keep moving it back away from it. I've tried everything, too, to keep it in place, rugs, carpeting, non-slip rubber, bare laminate floor, everything, and it still moves after getting up and down two or three times. Other than that, it's perfect. UPDATE: After nine months of moderate use, the pleather has begun to split and crack on the arms, back, and seat. Also, the ribbed plastic piece that fits the chair into the base has started to deteriorate, making the chair unstable. I am currently having to take it apart a few times a day and force the plastic piece back into the metal base sheath just to keep it from tipping over. This is unfortunate, as I really liked this chair up to this point. It is definitely not built to last.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Does the job
Just as described and easy to put together. I took it out the box and put it together in under 30 minutes. Instructions are easy to read and although my box came in half opened, everything was packaged great INSIDE the box. I vibrates on the feet area and chair and also heats. The husband also loves it and uses it as a game chair and at times falls asleep on it too since it’s comfy. It did have a very strong almost unbareable smell once I took it out the box but it went away after a couple of days.

5.0 out of 5 stars | AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME
OMG, this replaced a 700$ massage chair that goes for about 350-700 on Amazon that I had for years. It is way more comfortable, doesn't need eggshells between in and the cover blanket to soften the massage balls and is equally as effective if not more since it has heat. I am a programmer so I spend more time in this chair than anywhere. I am 5'10", 140lb, HWP and it is perfect. I am guessing if you do not exceed the weight capacity this chair will fit you just fine regardless of height unless you're an oompa loompa. Also, I was concerned the spinning would annoy me more than satisfy me..but it does not. It does not spin on it's own like many chairs, it stays pretty much where you put it but spins effortlessly. The only thing I lament is that it doesn't have a nice spot under the center for my kitties to nap like the old one, but they'll adapt.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Vibrating Heaven.
They do have smell, kind of like a new car has. I expect that to diapate after a while . The good; conformable, easy install, and look beautiful. I'm in vibrating heaven . What a bargain. I bought two. Update: the smell went away after a couple of weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great Chairs
These chairs are great. Based on other reviews I expected the smell to be more pungent, it's only barely noticeable. It is there though, but not bad like others make it out to be. These are very comfortable. Also, I read otberwise, but you actually can use only the heat separate from the vibration, you just need to understand how the remote works first. Very happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars | ... chairs and ordered two more because I was so pleased with them
I previously purchased two of these chairs and ordered two more because I was so pleased with them. They take a good beating at my salon. I was worried about our patrons children horsing around in them but they have shown absolutely no give or breaking down. I would buy these over and over. Now my husband is trying to get me to sneak one out of the salon for at our home! I actually use them to relax between clients and feel so invigorated after just 10 minutes of heat and massage.
