Reason mainly --
1) NO trusted customer reviews yet in the Net...
2) Dontknow whats the durability issues longterm. ESPECIALLY the known peeling of the 'leather' surfaces of the chair...
...not to mention doubtful (?bad) aftersales services which was discussed inthe forums.
3) Definitely not as nice looking as the Osim or Gintell ones.. looks bulky a bit
But given the fact that my wife Really loves this model...so ive decided to give it a go and buy it -- as her bday present as well.
It came with 3 parts, making it easier to get thru our main house door. The installation only takes around 10-15 mins.
u really need to have space to put this chair bcause on recline the length is 1.9metres... width is about 84cm. Lucky weve already measured our space before buying it.
2colors are available..red and dark brown. We chose the latter as itll mask pen marks more effectively.
Above -- the Zero G position.
It Features heated airbags which are cozy.
There are multiple massage modes as well, included are the Chinese Japanese and Thai massage modes.
The intensity can also be changed for elderly, adult and young age groups.
Below : it uses 300W of electricity...with an on and off switch at the back.
The controller looks typical of any new Ogawa chair (i think so)
basically you can control most of the things including the intensity and strength of the massage/airbags.
Timer is either 5/10/15/20 & 30 mins
The 4 different positions... including the upside down
3 different massage modes , Thai including body stretching/Chinese/Japanese
And also 3diferent preset massage mode ie. Morning /midday / night before sleeping
What i love Best is the ability of this chair to concentrate on the diferent body areas namely shoulder /waist/full body and legs/thighs- airbags
During the first day 1used it for nearly 2hrs in total ...until my body aches!
...not to mention dozed off twice during the massage.... which is excellent.
Personally i think our current purchase is Worth it, as this chair is enjoyed by the whole family, including my kids.... But if youre going for a massage chair you DEFINITELY NEED TO TEST IT FIRST....plus the budget lah haha
Bcoz your preference is definitely different than ours..
Preferably test it head to head for comparison... another brand that we didnt test before making our decision was Gintell which i think more or less is equally good...
however again the high end and more function ones will definitely costs more.
Your Money Your Choice.
Will update you all again if theres any problems/ etc with the massage chair.
