"I've got an 8ft home cinema set up with an HD projector and was looking for some suitable seating to complete the experience. After searching the internet, I was initially attracted to these seats because drinkstuff carry them in stock and they are of mid-range cost, and (from the photo) I liked the style more than some others. I have not been disappointed - these are excellent seats, very comfortable and the reclining feature is a real treat. The drinks holder in the arm can be made to keep drinks cold or hot - I've only used the cold setting with bottles of beer, and it's fab! Hot drinks could be put in the wee cups they provide with the chairs - but I like my coffee / tea in bigger amounts so don't use them. I've also not used the fridge but it'd be very handy if you didn't want to leave the film half way through for another 'brew'. I also love the heated element in the seats - a real luxury to enjoy, especially if your back's a bit achy after a hard day's night. The massage feature's a nice idea - BUT is far too noisy to really enjoy during a film. I have used it but only when on my own and during a riotously noisy film - I would imagine sitting next to someone with it rumbling away would be worse than sitting in a public cinema with popcorn and wrapped sweet eaters left, right, front and rear of you. Overall, I'd say this product offers very good value for money and I'm really pleased - I hope it offers the years of service that the quality seems to suggest it will."

"Simply GREAT, came in easy to manage boxes, open them up slot them together, only criticism, too many plugs, should come up with a simple joining system for all the plugs apart from that look perfect, very comfy and I'm super pleased."

"Items arrived super quick and in easy manageable boxes, simply unpack and slot together, then plug in all the cables. Chairs look expensive, feel great, the fridge does the job nicely and they are all super comfy. Only bad point is there is too many plugs and leads to plug in and would be better if there was more thought in reducing this. Overall a superb piece of kit, the ideal finish for my cinema room."

"I purchased a 3 set of the cinema seats in brown leather. They were out of stock when I ordered, so I knew I'd have to wait. Tony kept me informed and they arrived in stock within a week of the estimated date. Delivery was then arranged at my convenience and they arrived (in six boxes!) on schedule. They are quite heavy, so you will need some help to move and assemble. Assembly is quite straightforward and doesn't take too long. As others have stated, make sure you have multi-way mains adaptors, one for each seat. The wired control on one seat was faulty but Tony dispatched a replacement next day. Overall I'm very pleased with the chairs and the service was excellent. Photo is chairs test assembled in temporary location whilst I'm still building the cinema room!"

"3 seater, wonderful. Points to note: arrives in six boxes, so you can set it up yourself and get it through confined corners easily. Has 9 mains plugs on it (3 on each chair), so suggest you get 3x4 way adapters and link them one under each chair (there is room for all cable) and have 1 plug sticking out the back. Finally, don't worry about the spare lead in each chair.
