I love my new seats, the Octane Dream HR!
Unbox and install was easy, just clip the upper half of the seat into the lower half and connect the head rest cables. No tools needed. Takes two people to safely move each lower half of the seat; the upper half one person.
The knubs on the bottom of the seat frame that contact the ground are hard plastic. Because I have laminate floors, I used rubber, anti-skid pads between the floor and the seat. They don't skid at all. Also, each chair is separate, there is no bracket connecting them together. You can buy such a bracket from your Octane vendor. I considered making my own bracket and connecting them together so they don't move. I rejected that idea because after some testing (jumping into the seat etc.) they don't move at all.
Fit and Finish:
Overall, well built seats. I only noted a few minor flaws: The stitching on one of the arm rest lids had about an inch of excess thread, no big deal. One of the hinges on the arm rest lid does not allow the lid to close completely (in the pictures it is the one closest to the wall). On inspection, one of the hinge screws snapped off or was never installed, hard to say. The tray tables do not fit into the armrest storage containers with there mounting pins install. I see why because the armrest storage just isn't wide enough (once the pin is unscrewed, they fit fine). BTW, the finish on the black tray table is that nice soft touch plastic would find in the interior of a BMW or VW.
Far exceeded my expectations. Between firm and soft, these would be firm (at least after 2 hours of seat time!). If you like a squishy seat, not for you. I am 6 ft, 185 lbs and these fit me perfectly, especial in terms of how long the seat is when fully reclined. THE BEST FEATURE IS THE POWER HEADREST. I would have regretted buying a seat without out. To prove it to myself, I did the following test: Sit in the chair and fully recline and see where my eyes pointed. Well, with the headrest fully collapsed in the chair back my eyes point to where the ceiling and screen wall meet - not a good angle. Then you move the headrest, and it aligns your eyes perfectly with the screen. Without that feature, I'd have to use a loose pillow or tacky saddlebag style head pillow that drapes over the chair back (Octane sells them) - no good.
Worth the wait, incredible value, and would buy again without hesitation.
Now for the pictures!
