Pros Inexpensive, relatively comfortable and adjustableExtremely comfortable, tons of adjustability, sturdy constructionSuper easy to assemble, very adjustableAppears quite durable, very adjustableAppears well-built, comfortable
Cons Didn’t seem the most durablePriceyCould be a lot more comfortable, design isn’t universalExceptionally expensive, harder to assembleCould have more adjustable features, pricey
Bottom Line While the Modway is far from the best, it is the best you can get at this priceOur favorite office chair that we have tested to date, the Leap is by far the best you can getThis chair definitely makes a style statement but we wish it were a bit more comfortableIt’s hard to justify spending an exorbitant amount for a chair that isn’t the absolute bestWhile the Think overall did well in our review, it didn’t quite make it onto our list of favorites
