Product Snapshot

Overview

The MCQ Ergonomic Office Chair is an entry-level offering that can handle a maximum weight limit of up to 300 lbs. The chair features padded armrests and an integrated headrest. It can also be reclined from 90° to 110°, and while this is good, the best office chairs can have a deeper recline angle.

The seat cushion on the MCQ Ergonomic Office Chair is double padded for comfort, and its high-quality PU Leather fabric is easy to clean. Below the seat, there’s also a lever for adjusting its rocking mechanism and a knob for regulating the rocking tension. The chair also boasts a class 3 gas cylinder, which is common in many highly-rated gaming chairs.

Consensus

our Verdict

The MCQ Home Office Ergonomic chair is a sturdy pick for buyers prioritizing comfort and a strong build. The chair’s alloy steel frame allows it to handle individuals weighing up to 300 lbs, and with a recline of up to 110°, owners can sit back and relax after a long work session. The padded armrests are another nice touch, but the PU leather material may not work for extended sitting due to poor breathability.

Adjustments are easy to make through the levers underneath the MCQ’s seat. However, owners can only adjust the seat height rocking tension and lock the current recline in place. The best executive leather office chairs offer much more adjustability.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Great for comfort
    • Designed for home or office use, the MCQ Home Office Ergonomic has generous padding on its backrest and seat, making it very comfortable for extended gaming or work sessions.

  • Sturdy build quality
    • The MCQ’s steel chassis is strong enough to support individuals who weigh up to 300 lbs.

  • Good stability
    • The chair has a five-point base for good balance and multidirectional movement.

Reason to Avoid

  • Average adjustability and ergonomics
    • The MCQ Ergonomic Chair allows for seat height, reclining, and rocking tension adjustment, but it is still not as adjustable as some of the best office chairs on the market, as its armrests and seat depth are fixed. It can recline up to 110°, and its seat height has an adjustment range of about 3.5”.

  • No lumbar support
    • While the MCQ Ergonomic has contoured cushioning for back comfort, there’s no adjustable lumbar support.

The MCQ Ergonomic Chair has a higher weight capacity of up to 300 lbs than the MCQ Executive Task Chair, which is limited to 270 lbs. The MCQ Ergonomic also has more generous padding on its armrests than the MCQ Executive Task Chair, and it also offers slightly more seat height adjustment allowance of 3.9 inches compared to the latter, which is only adjustable by 3.6 inches.

The MCQ Ergonomic Chair’s 300 lbs weight capacity is lower than that of the AmazonBasics Big & Tall Executive Chair, which can handle up to 350 lbs. Weighing 44.09 lbs, the AmazonBasics chair is much heavier than the 26.69-pound MCQ Ergonomic Chair. If weight capacity is a major consideration when choosing a chair, then you might be interested in our AmazonBasics Big Tall Executive Chair review.

The MCQ Ergonomic Chair’s leather backrest is not as breathable as the mesh backrest on the Modway Articulate Ergonomic Chair. The latter is also available in more color options than the former, but its 331 lbs weight limit is no match for the MCQ’s 350 lbs weight capacity. Here’s our Modway Articulate Ergonomic review if you’d like to learn more about it, but if you’d want to consider another mesh-back alternative, we’ve also covered the AirCentric 2 in our AirCentric 2 review.
