Relaxzen Leisure Recliner Chair – Assembly headache but worth it.

This is surprisingly comfortable and well worth the money on that basis. However, the massage aspect of it is weak, as reported by others. It’s partially a function of appropriate expectations: if you think your getting the benefits of a $1,000 massage chair at this price, you’re just being unrealistic.

Its very comfortable and the massage works good. The seating is nice and wide and the back is broad. Im short and small but if your tall this would be a great chair for you. It was a blind purchase and i got lucky on this one.

The relaxzen recliner chair is one of the most comfortable chairs i have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The chair alone is amazing, add heat and it becomes a wonderful experience. The vibration massage is nice but even without the massage the chair is great. The material does feel like real leather, it is soft and very comfortable. The wires are descrete and the assembly is easy. Highly recommend this chair.

  • Assembly headache but worth it.
  • Positive Reviews Well Deserved
  • Nice chair in this price range.

I bought this chair in order to facilitate the relaxation i normally achieve through whiskey–it works. It took about an hour of set up, but nothing too complicated even for me. Now, put together, it’s fantastic. It looks a couple of hundred dollars more expensive than it actually is, and the combination of vibration and heat make it a trap i can sink into for several hours. Personally, i like a constant background vibration, and don’t care for the kneeding of swedish massage models, so this chair suits me fine. Overall, for this price, this is an excellent product.

I purchased this relaxzen leisure recliner chair to replace my broken office chair and it arrived within the promised date in a large cardboard protected box. Assembly of the chair took 20 minutes using the installation kit (none of your own tools are required). The chair color is good and is very close to the color in the product picture. The chair i purchased is brown and it went very nicely with my maple office furniture. I just needed a comfortable chair and didn’t require the message features, but i thought that would be nice to have. After thoroughly using this chair, i would say that the message feature is the worst part of this chair. One of the four zones is very loud when activated, the other three were quiet. The 4 zones don’t message you like the high end chairs, they only vibrate and the intensity of the vibration has 5 different settings. If you are looking for a true message chair, then you should keep looking. Using the chair without the message feature makes this a decent chair, but there is a potential issue with the base attachment, in that it is not built to last.

I was unsure whether to order this recliner: i didn’t know whether it would be comfortable nor if it would be as attractive as it showed in the picture. After reading the reviews, i decided to give it a try. First, i want to thank everyone who takes the time to review products. I really rely on those reviews and read all before purchasing an item. This chair received good reviews and everyone was spot on. This was bought for my husband’s man cave and it looks wonderful in there and that is where it should have stayed. The weather was so nice that we decided to sit on our newly built front porch. We needed extra seating and this chair is not heavy, so we put it on the porch. Okay, guess where this chair is – still on the porch.

The heat is only in the lower back and doesn’t spread much. The description says massaging but it really just vibrates. There’s no massaging or kneading. This is what i expected for the price, though. It’s made very well and looks great.

I ordered 1 chair and i liked so much, i ordered 2 more. The seat cushion is firm, not soft. I am 6ft tall and my head can rest on the back of the chair. I have had other low cost recliners that broke at the base but this looks like it will last. I have been sitting in it for two hours now and my but is a little soon do to the firmness of the cushion. One i am now using as my computer chair for flight simulation. I need a chair that is not on wheels because both feet are on rudder pettles that bush me away when i apply pressure. Message is a nice touch in the morning.

I bought this for my mom and she likes it a lot. She doesn’t quite give it a five. The vibration isn’t all that strong, but it feels nice. Also, it could recline much further back than it does. It’s still a very, very relaxing chair and she enjoys sitting in it much more than the couch due to her back pain. Also the price was pretty good, considering how attractive/quality the chair is. Just a tip on assembly: you may have to switch around steps (i believe) 3 and 4. I couldn’t get the thing to assembly when i tried to attached the bottom hinge after the sides. I had to attach the bottom and then the side screws.

Second camo recliner, different style. Looks good, sturdy, and heat/massage works well.

Comfortable and the vibrator works well. It was difficult to connect the seat to the back when assembling the chair. The arms were also a little hard to align with the holes. I haven’t used the chair long enough to know how well it will hold up, but it looks like it is well made and should be durable. Even with the difficulty in assembling the chair, i would buy it again.

Not as comfortable as some other reviews led me to believe, but when you turn on the vibrate setting, it totally makes up for it. Contrary to what i read in one review, the heat does work without the vibrate setting being turned on but it only heats the lower lumbar area. The chair is as difficult to put together as everyone says. I put it together alone, it may be easier with two people. I wish the cushion in the head rest was about 2-3′ thicker i feel a little like i’m getting ready to have my teeth cleaned when i recline in this chair. Speaking of reclining, the recline ‘feature’ reminds me of adjusting a bucket seat in a small coupe like a honda civic. I feel like the chair might break every time i recline.

I didn’t buy this chair with only a piece of furniture in mind but the chair is attractive. I have seen much more expensive chairs with the basic same design but did not have the message feature which i use because of chronic back pain. I use the chair while spending time on the computer writing a book. My back does not become fatigued as quickly. You must have some assembly skills to assemble the chair but the instructions are adequate but could be better. I am a male and believe that most women could not assemble this chair. I have seen stand alone back vibrators with heat cost as much as this chair. The chair cushion might too firm for some but suits me fine.

I like this chair very much. I looks good and is relatively easy to install even without any instruction. What i didn’t like it, is the massaging capability. It’s basically a vibration kind of massage, not the rolling up and down type. But heck, with the low price i pay, i don’t think i should complain at all. What i can say is, you won’t be disappointed with this chair in 360 degree.

We bought this chair for my parents who had a similar brown leather chair that was broken and nobody wanted to sit in it. The price was great so we researched the reviews and found good stuff on this chair. The chair was shipped quickly. When i got it i assembled it by myself and we brought it to my parent’s house on christmas.Now everybody uses the chair and comments on how comfortable it is. It is a fake leather but, it looks pretty good. The chair is comfortable to sit in and does recline. The massage options are ok at best. If you are looking for something to be a true massage chair you will have to spend more money.

Sitting in it now at my desk. I have permanently stashed the ottoman under my desk and i pull the chair right up to my desk. My keyboard sits comfortably on my lap and my mouse stays on the wide arm rest. Besides being comfortable and warm, the best part is that my wrists no longer hurt from reaching up to my desk. That is not why i bought this chair but just one of the many benefits that have come from my wise investmentit was easy to put together and i have had no malfunctions with any of it. If i could change one thing it would be the option to use heat only.

Outside of the trauma of putting it together which was not all that bad i love this chair. It swivels, it vibrates and it has a heater. To be honest i haven’t really reclined it back and forth, i just found the position i liked and left it there. Maybe i should give it a four but really, i love it.

This thing feels almost too good (almost). But seriously, i never want to get out of it. Whether you just need to chill or something is sore, this will help.

Great chair but the arm were super difficult to screw on. The arms are very tight between the arm frame and seat cushion. The holes for the screws did not line up well and had to be manipulated several ways to get it done. In the end i had to remove the chair from the stand to turn the chair upside done to get these four screws in. Other wise, following the instructions you wide up standing on your head to try to get it done. The chair works fine and other than the arms was easy to put together. It will take some hand strength to get that done. The arms had a couple of flaws but the company jumped all over it and was quick to ship two replacement arms. Good chair coupled with a great company customer support equals 5 stars every time.

I like the posture of the chair a lot and got it instead of a recliner because of my small room. The seat cushioning is not very good after almost two months of use, but i like everything else about the chair that i will make it work. Update 5/27/2018 i still like this chair quite a lot. The cushioning is completely useless, so i now use a seat cushion on top of it. The frame has slightly bent on one side so it’s not perfectly even. Still, that’s not too bad for the time i’ve had it.

The chair and ottoman took about 30 minutes to assemble. Directions to put pieces together were good but how to use the chair was not clearly written. The chair is quite nice to sit in, and it reclines at a good angle to be able to watch tv without craning my neck. The heat works good, and it is really not massaging, but vibration. There are different zones and different levels of intensity. Favorite is heat and lower back. The chair is a good value for the price and would and have recommended it as a good buy.

My husband likes this chair. It was easy to put together and is comfortable enough for his shed/man cave. It is not ‘sinkable soft’, but sufficient. It is lightweight and can tip over if you sit too close to edge. The massage is a series of pulses. The heated seat is his favorite feature. Product is as described, just being informative as a service to my fellow consumers. A very nice looking chair that is perfect if you don’t have enough room for a big recliner.

Haven’t had much time in it yet but so far so good. Two of us girls assembled it so it wasn’t that difficult. However, i thought we were getting a tan or light brown chair and it was dark brown. It still matches my living room furniture but i had hoped for contrast. Any way, i am happy with the order.

Relaxzen 60-078011 Deluxe Leisure Recliner Chair, The chair was easy to put together

Great chair for a petite person. As an author and graphic designer, i spend a ton of time at my desk. This chair sits a little low—it’s not intended to be a desk chair—but it suits my needs perfectly. All i had to do was prop my monitor to tilt downward and i was good to go.

It is better than i thought. This is the 2nd piece of furniture i have purchased through amazon and it went well. I called fedex numerous times to schedule delivery, but they came when they wanted anyway and left it on my doorstop. Luckily, it was not raining or snowing. It was ‘engineered’ into a box about three foot squared. Lot’s of tape and styrofoam. Once you get passed that, it is quite easy to put together.

Super comfy chair for the hubby. . Bought this instead of a massage chair pad (only cost a bit more) and we were all pleasantly surprised. Can’t beat the chair for the price and the massage and heat work great. Very happy so far (had it for 2 months) and he sits in it all the time. Great chair for watching movies and getting a heated massage.

Comments from buyers

“Thoroughly Enjoying This Chair, Deluxe Leisure vibrating relaxing chair, Love this recliner!”

Wife assembled this chair which tells you it was pretty easy. . My wife assembled this chair which tells you it was pretty easy. . It’s very comfortable and the heat/massage is nice – i was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price – nice sturdy chair and sleeping in it should be enjoyable too – it reclines just enough to be comfortable – just put it together last night so we still have to tweak the adjustment on the back so it will pop back up when we don’t want to recline but we will get that pretty quickly – i think we just tightened it up too tight to begin with – overall – love it and look forward to enjoying it.

A few things could be better. Biggest thing it could have more force with the massage. Do not like the cable between the chair and the ottoman, when you stand up it is between your legs.

Good enough we bought a second one. . We now have 2 of these chairs in our home, both purchased as gifts for my wife. (she enjoyed the first one so much, she requested a second one for our bedroom. ) this is not a luxurious item, but the vibrations are enough to help relax a person.

The chair was easy to put together. The chair was easy to put together. It took more time to unwrap the packaging. I knew the massage modes just vibrated and that works for me. I am 5’9′ tall and though the back could be longer, i can adjust the pillow and it is perfect. My cat and i enjoy the fact that the ottoman heats up as well. It is not thick enough for my cat to perch on the back of the chair but i am okay with that. I would recommend this to friends.

Nice comfortable chair, not so easy to assemble. I bought this chair for my mother and she enjoys the massage, although it is really a vibration. This chair is rather small and narrow so overweight and tall people might not be comfortable. My mom said that the chair is comfortable and she often falls to sleep in it. I had a hard time putting the chair together with help because the screws did not fit correctly and the instructions were not clear. I can’t truly say that i would recommend this chair because of the difficulty i had putting the chair together.

My wife got me this chair to replace my glider rocker ottoman that went to the baby’s room. Was surprised at the quality of the base, nice wood not the usual metal. My only gripe is that this chair is really only for relaxing not really a chair you can sit in and read a book or kindle because the armrest are very low i find it uncomfortable to read for long periods of time because of the lack of support for my arms. But the massaging functions work, wish it was a human touch type but it does the trick.

Restorative value; mild rumble, with or without heat. My kitty arlo and i are relaxing in one of the two we got. I have spine and hip issues. I think the price might have increased since we got ours. My husband and i love these chairs. They can be set at a very low rumble, with or without heat, but they are very meditative and soothing to crunchy old bones and weary minds.

I want to start my review by stating that i did return this chair and purchased a traditional recliner at a furniture store for the same price. While this chair is fairly comfortable, for the same price, i got a much more comfortable recliner. It was a little challenging to put together, you definitely need a little muscle to get the arms on. The massage function is very strong, comes with 5 levels of intensity, and 10 different modes. You can single out your legs, back, thighs, and shoulders to massage, my big issue is, that for the price, it just isnt that comfortable compared to a traditional recliner. The cushion feels like after a few months it will sink in, and the arms dont feel very sturdy. Just not a comfortable chair. For maybe $75 less it would be a nice pick up.

* super easy to put together (45min)* comfy microfiber* massagers/vibrators lol whatever you wanna call them. Especially after a long day of work. * heat in the lower back section only. Feels better with netflix and a blanket. Pretty much all body weight to move the seat back and forth. * very light and easy to move around if need be.

I think it’s a great chair, i’ve actually fallen asleep in it a. I think it’s a great chair ,i’ve actually fallen asleep in it a couple of times. It’s a great chair for someone who can’t handle extreme vibration,and the heat setting is great . I have several family and friends talking about buying one after they tried mine .I think it was worth the money and would gladly do it again.

I bought this to go with my new bobkona hungtinton microfiber/faux leather 3-piece sectional sofa set, and it really does. It slides back rather than recline, and i really like that because it doesn’t ‘pop’ into place. Other recliners were a bit to burley looking for me. This one is sleek but stands up to the challenge of my rubenesque physique. Cordage messy, but can wrap up and stick in side pocket of chair for nice clean look.

Baught the chair for my wife she loves it. This chair is not only looks good its comfortable also.

Love this chair i have two of them. We ordered two of these chairs with the intention of using them in the home office, or as a backup plan, using them in the living room. They’re so incredibly comfortable that the living room won out but i may order two more for the office. They were relatively easy to assemble. The first one took 30 minutes and the second one only took 10 minutes. It’s a nice, sturdy, soft, comfortable chair that feels solidly built for an average sized person. The massage function is a vibrator but it’s very comfortable. The color is a soft, cocoa brown more than beige – very neutral. The electronic functions are simple to connect and the remote is self-explanatory and simple to use. The vibrator is not silent but very quiet and does have a timer to shut itself off.

Arrived before it said it would. Went together pretty easy if you didn’t have a two year old and two dogs helping you. Comfortable yet there could be more padding in the seat area. You can feel the motorized things thru the fabric and if they don’t stop in a convenient place it makes for uncomfortable sitting. Other than that it is a great chair.

But am extremely glad i did. I almost didn’t purchase this because of the negative reviews, but am extremely glad i did. It is small, and fits wherever i need it to, it works great – the massage is more of a vibrating sensation, but it actually does help blood flow, and aching muscles – especially with lumbar heat. I have had this since november, and it has been used by everyone on a daily basis – including kids. It still looks beautiful, and has survived a few minor spills (surprisingly – not from the kids) and the microfiber cleaned easily with just a wet rag. It was fairly simple to put together (1 person took less than a half hour)and the cords stay easily out of sight. When purchasing this, note the picture and the price. This is what you’ll be getting. Don’t expect the quality of a $1000 heated massage chair when you pay 200 for it. I think it’s great, and would recommend it.
