Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Classy appearance, reasonably priced, durable, comfortable, springs adjustable
Cons:Footrest inadequately padded, recliner lever requires effort to operate, seat cushion upholstery incomplete on sides.
The Bottom Line: Comfort, name brand, reasonably-priced, a decent chair for the non-perfectionist.
Hi there! This is my first review so I hope I do this right. I purchased a Lane Rocker/Recliner model #11803-4616 at a local furniture store in Hatfield, PA for a seemingly bargain price of 319 dollars plus tax. It was available and I was able to try out a floor model and found it adequate (because I found out ordering a chair from the company would take up to 6 weeks to deliver). I got it new in the box and took it home that day.

Assembling the chair was simple. The back attached with two screws and feels very secure. The chair has plenty of lower back support and a soft, pillowed headrest. The arms are over-padded for a more comfy feel and armrest slipcovers are included. Overall appearance for the chair is good for the price I paid.
The first thing I noticed when I sat in it was the rock was set too soft and I tended to go back too far to be comfortable. Although not mentioned in the pamphlet that came with the chair, the springs underneath are adjustable. There are three sets of pre-drilled holes in the upper rocker base where the springs can be shifted foreward to increase the firmness of the rock. I don't think this was intended to be a user-adjustment item because it was very difficult to do (the springs are always under tension and need to be pulled open to re-attach). The chair comes with a one-year full warranty but I did not inquire if that included spring adjustment, so I don't recommend a buyer do this himself unless you really know what you're doing under there.
After I adjusted the firmness of the rock, I found the chair comfortable enough to spend hours in, read, watch TV, even take a nap. I'm 250 pounds and the chair seems to bear my weight well. Opening and closing the chair with the lever requires more than usual effort and the footrest isn't as well-padded as it could be. There is a secondary board across the footrest rails that is nothing more than an upholstered piece of wood and not very comfortable.
Still, for a name-brand rocker-recliner for around 320.00, I think it's a good deal.
