Sharper Image MSI-CS775H Review
The MSI-CS775H is, without a doubt, one of the more popular Shiatsu Massage Cushions on the market right now. Despite boasting a plethora of features, and an absolutely fantastic build quality, it comes in at a rather low price. This means that if you are on the prowl for a decent massage chair pad, you should almost certainly give this one a look.
As this is a massage cushion, it is ridiculously convenient to use. You just place it on your chair. The straps on the MSI-C5775H should accommodate almost any chair that you have in your home right now, so you shouldn’t have too much difficulty. The major benefit of a massage cushion is that it negates the need to have a big, bulky massage chair in your home. Sure, it doesn’t pump out quite the same amount of power, but it takes up far less real estate.
It is worth noting that the MSI-C5775H is a shiatsu with rolling massage cushion only. Yes, there are other massage cushions on the market which have different ‘modes’. However, to be perfectly honest, they are never as brilliant. When a massage cushion has to do ‘everything’ yet still keep the price low, sacrifices are going to have to be made. This massage cushion carries out a shiatsu massage, and it does it incredibly well!
One of the highlights of the MSI-C5775H is the amount of control you have over it. You have three main settings; low, medium and high. This means that you have full control over the intensity. In addition to this, you also have control over the parts of your back that you are targeting (upper, lower, or entire back). This is all controlled by a simple-to-use remote control.
To cap it off, the massage cushion also pumps out heat when it massages. This will help to relieve your tired muscles and make them more receptive to the massage. Basically, it is going to feel a whole lot better.
Pros and Cons of MSI-CS775H
At the start, I said that this massage cushion is cheap. Now, you will find massage cushions on the market which are cheaper. However, I do tend to steer clear of these. Cheaper massage cushions, whilst good for your bank balance, are not all that good for your muscles. They lack power and they lack control. They are just pointless. With this chair, you get a decent blend between quality, functionality, and price. For that, it is worth it.
Perhaps the only real major issue I have with this massage cushion is the heat functionality. You can’t use that independently of the massage feature. Sometimes, after a long hard day at work, I do like to come home and have heat on my muscles without the massage. It loosens them up for me. The fact that I can’t do this with the massage cushion is a touch irritating. However, I am sure it will not bother others half as much as it bothers me, so try not to worry about that too much.
All in all, this cushion is very much a ‘must buy’.
