Amazon always comes up with easy to use, standard quality office products that it advertises on its Amazon marketplace, and these products operate under the brand name AmazonBasics. The products also include office chairs, and in this particular review, we’re going to be looking into the AmazonBasics low back office chair to see whether or not it’s one of the best armless office chairs in the market. The low back office chair is relatively smaller in size compared to other office computer chairs, making it a perfect option for children, and also a computer chair that you can use at home. We’re going to take a look at the AmazonBasics low back armless chair to see if at all it should be the next item on your shopping list, so stick around.

Why We Like It – AmazonBasics Low-Back Computer Chair

The AmazonBasics Low Back Office Chair is a simple swivel task chair that would make a great part of your home office furniture. The task office chair is available in the color black, blue, green & yellow, and is one of the most basic office computer desk chairs that’s got caster wheels.

Pros
  • 2-inch thick padded seat for added comfort
  • Available in blue, black, green and yellow
  • Backed by AmazonBasics 1 Year Limited Warranty
Cons
  • No armrests

Support

This AmazonBasics mesh back ergonomic office chair is really as basic as you can get. The mesh office chair doesn’t really come with any form of lumbar support, so you shouldn’t expect it to have any advanced mechanisms that might help keep your back in a healthy condition. This therefore crosses out any possibilities of it being a gaming chair, or even an executive chair since the lack of back support also implies that the ergonomic desk chair may not be the best option for those times that you need to sit down for long hours. The Flash Furniture Mid-Back computer office desk chair on the other hand does come with lower back support, making it a much better option. If you’d prefer another option, check out our AmazonBasics multi-purpose chair review.

Comfort

By virtue of being a mesh computer chair, this AmazonBasics low back computer task chair is not really as comfortable as you’d expect a leather chair to be, like many of the nicest HON office chairs, but this is not to say that you won’t enjoy sitting on it. The home office chair comes with a 2-inch padded seat for added comfort, and it’s backrest is well made to both your lower and mid back regions. The armless office chair is also said to be one of the best office chairs to deal with especially if you’ve got a little space for your office furniture, as it’s got a very small footprint. For another small footprint option, you may want to look at stools, you can read our Covibrant lockable stool review or our SONGMICS standing desk chair, adjustable standing stool review for a couple of options.

Adjustability

Adjustability isn’t a really major issue with the AmazonBasics low back upholstered ergonomic computer chair. The chair features adjustable chair height lever that’s just at the bottom of the seat cushion, and to add to that, the chair comes with a tilt control knob that’s right at the bottom of the seat cushion, so you’ll be able to adjust the amount of force needed to make the mesh adjustable swivel computer chair recline. Also worthy of note is that the adjustable office chair doesn’t really let you adjust the seat depth, (you won’t be able to do that with the AmazonBasics Leather Mid-Back Office Chairs either) so you’ll just have to be Ok with the chairs standard seat depth. Additionally, read our CoVibrant modern office chair without wheels waiting room chairs review for a great chair that has no adjustability.

Breathability

Being a mesh chair, this AmazonBasics armless office chair is more than capable of having air circulate a lot better than PU leather office chairs would, and this means that your back will always stay cool as you work even under the hot summer heat. The low back task chair also has a relatively smaller back rest compared to the Ergonomic Office Chair Desk Chair, so you shouldn’t have to worry about having a large part of your back covered when you don’t want to. However, if you don’t care about breathability, read our Office Star chairs review and see if it meets your needs.

Value

The AmazonBasics low back office chair is one of the few low back upholstered mesh chairs that we strongly advise should be one of your home office chairs. It’s a lot cheaper than other AmazonBasics high back chairs, and we think it’s the one swivel chair that is also perfect for your kids. The chair has a maximum weight capacity of about 250 pounds, meaning it’s fine for the average guy to use. If you’re looking for a more executive office chair or one that you can use for computer gaming, then the Serta Essential Mesh Low-Back Computer Desk Task Chair might be worth a look.

AmazonBasics Low-Back Office Chair Wrap Up

While it may not be an AmazonBasics high-back executive chair, this low-back swivel chair is more than capable of keeping its users comfortable. The upholstered mesh adjustable swivel chair is also quite affordable since it retails at less than $100, and since it comes with a 1 year limited warranty, the low price shouldn’t make you see it as a low-quality product in any way.
