“ Brand: Titan / Type: Chair „
When we upgraded our computer last year, we realised we were going to need a proper computer chair for the desk rather than using the dining room chairs all the time. After browsing for a while we settled on this chair from Staples. The price was reasonable at just under £30 yet it looked a lot more expensive than some of the similar priced chair on display.
On first impressions, the chair matched up well in appearance to many of the more expensive models. With a leather exterior rather than the fabric covering, and a decent height to the back of the chair, it looked like you could sit comfortably at your desk in this chair. It also had arm rests either side which a lot of the cheaper looking models didn't have.
The chair comes flat packed as it were in a box when you take it away from the shop, so the task fell to me to put it together. There weren't many pieces to have to struggle with and I found the task an easy one. The majority of the chair pieced together with screws, so it was reassuring to think you weren't going to fall out of it if it were to pop apart.
The wheel castors were the main thing I struggled with. They did literally pop into place and I was worried that if I didn't do it correctly to begin with someone may end up on the floor. Thankfully that has never happened in over a year.
Sitting in the chair, I found the base to be well padded and provide some nice support to your body. The back line is more than high enough for me and I feel I can gain good posture when sitting in this chair.
As it has arm supports, the chair also gives a good space feeling to it but also manages to make you feel secure in the chair at the same time.
My one gripe with the chair it it's height level. The lowest level on the chair is very low and wouldn't never be considered by anyone using the chair to work at a desk. The highest position is where we have placed our setting the whole time we have been using the chair, and it's enough for me, but I think a tall person may struggle with leg space.
Over time we have found that despite us not being an overly large family in weight terms, the chair has withstood us all using it on a daily basis, and just recently we have noticed that the support against the height leverage arm underneath is starting to lose it's momentum and grip. Occasionally we find as we sit in it we sink to the lowest height position. This is slightly annoying although was funny the first time it happened to my husband.
I have found that the chair has been easy to keep clean with a damp cloth over time, and so far it hasn't come up against any major or minor tears or rips etc., so the fabric covering is lasting well for the price.
Despite not having a high price tag and it's very minor flaw I think this chair is great value for money. It may not have many of the luxuries that higher priced chairs come with, but it certainly stands out against it's similar priced peers.
