The "great value award" seems to contradict the "not that affordable" in the "cons" portion.

If anyone is in the market for a new chair, Amazon makes their own chairs, new white version of its midback AmazonBasics chair just came out a few months ago, I got it for $56 shipped. its quite nice, I like it. the white leather feels nice too

[ man then prices shot up , way up . sure as heck did not pay that money for it ''wow'' wallmart was like 140$ to the door for the gray /black & a red /black 134$ ]

best thing for me was getting away from then ''T'' arm rests I yet to find one that I can rest my arms properly or with any real comfort . seems like where I want to rest my arm ther is no arm rest just that gap between the chair back and the so called rest .. lol... then I tend to lean to the right a lot and find them ''T'' rests not holding me in and stabbing me in the ribs . never again with a chair with them ''T'' style arm rests . may as well for me say they don't have arm rests at all ..lol...
