  • It looks great.
  • Ergonomic, comfortable to use.
  • The materials and design look premium.
  • The mechanics are easy to use and fluid.
  • It is easy to put together and the manual is easy to read.


  • The lumbar pillow is too hard and too big.
  • I feel that the chair is all round a little firm but may wear in over time.
  • Not cheap.
  • The bolts didn’t fit as I would've liked

KitGuru Says: There are a few minor cons, but on the whole the Vertagear SL5000 SE is a great option – it looks good, offers impressive comfort levels and the use of different materials really makes a difference.
