It turns on a dime. It can creep forward very slowly, important to get through tight places. Comfortable. Reversing direction is sometimes helpful, as is adjustable seat height. Very solidly built. I hope they write to me again in 6 mo. or a year so I can be more accurate and detailed. Reviews of others were so important in helping us decide what to buy.
It's not small, like a very solid throne, so it feels a bit clumsy in the tight hallways of an old house. Expect it to take all the paint off your door jambs while you're learning to navigate it. It likes to lift up area rugs. Probably more chair than my 98lb. wife needs, though it's nimble for its size.

My wife has a degenerative neuromuscular disease and will be walking less and less, even with a walker. Her disease affects small motor control too.
