Flash Furniture Mid-Back Black Mesh Swivel Task Chair with Flip-Up Arms

... but it looks like they have a white ass cushion

u/fezha · 35 pointsr/todayilearned

I checked Amazon for prices on it.


u/RagMuffin · 25 pointsr/cynicalbritofficial

I believe he got the Ergohuman. Here is a link to the amazon page of his chair I think.

u/iyArashi · 15 pointsr/cynicalbritofficial

I believe it's the Raynor Ergohuman.

u/Coffinspired · 15 pointsr/buildapcsales

Your point is fair about everyone on Reddit saying you NEED an Aeron, which is ridiculous.

But if you're spending even 2 hours straight in a computer chair, I'd say you'd want to spend a little more than $30-$40. Finding a ~$125 chair with a little adjustability on sale for ~$75 will be money much better spent. For how long you usually own a computer chair, it's worth spending a little more, even if you have to save up a little longer.

I'm currently using a Multi Function Alera Elusion (highly recommended) that was a little under $150, it's miles ahead of past chairs I've owned that were already over $100. I find it more comfortable than chairs that were twice as expensive. You don't need to break the bank on a Herman Miller for a comfortable ergo chair. Though, in fairness, I know even $150 is more than some would want to spend.

If you're looking at a cheaper chair that has zero adjustment for a daily driver, that you're buying without testing first, I'd probably stay away from ergonomic ones and just get a "flatter/scooped/cushioned-backed", or even an executive style chair.

An ill-fitting ergo chair turns something that should be very comfy and supportive into a torture rack.

u/worksysadmin · 13 pointsr/sysadmin

The Herman Miller Aeron is the gold standard.

However, I have a Alera Elusion from Amazon. It's got all the adjustability of a much more expensive chair; adjustable Seat pan, adjustable back, the seat pan angle and back reset angle are individually adjustable etc.


It is no Aeron but if you are on a budget, this is the best I have found.

    Both the 2012 Minis and the 2010 Mini are completely headless. Unfortunately, this means that accessing them via remote desktop gives you a measly 800x600 resolution. I use this handy little gadget on both of them to replicate a 1920x1080 display being connected. So, when I connect via Screen Sharing I get a nice big display.

u/Cyrekt_Stattrak · 11 pointsr/buildapc

Herman miller chairs. While I dont know alot about chairs, if you truely want the best this should be your go to.

ok im sorry I read your post and saw the 400 dollar limit, my bad :( Someone more experienced will have to help you.

u/nsivkov · 9 pointsr/battlestations

This chair is anything but ... it's the best damn chair ever. the arm pads are leather + memory foam and are up & down + 3 position left/right adjustable and are actually comfortable to place your hands on. the back & bottom mesh are awesome you can sit on it for 10 hours (like me) and you don't get swamp but from it. The build quality is simply amazing and it has the option for back support (which i have since my back hurts) it's the best damn investment i've made so far.

u/martialfarts316 · 9 pointsr/battlestations

I believe it's this chair.

u/Chango99 · 9 pointsr/battlestations

It's a Herman Miller Aeron. I'd looked for a used on craigslist since this retails around $1000.

The headrest looks like Engineered now's, which is another $150 or so.

Source: I have both.

u/6x9equals42 · 8 pointsr/buildapc

$100 won't get you very far and I'd probably just grab whatever feels nice at Office Depot. The Alera Elusion at $150 or the Ikea Markus at $200 have good reviews. Nicer chair are pretty buy it for life and will be more comfortable than cheap chairs, so I'd save $300-$400 and get a used Herman Miller or Steelcase. You'll probably spend more overall on cheap chairs that wear out than a nicer chair over its life span.

u/mynumberistwentynine · 8 pointsr/giantbomb

I think it's this one OP.

Of course I'm only basing that off of seeing the rear of it in the Civilization video they did. You can see it at 41:28.

u/LetgoLetItGo · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you're not willing to go over $200,I bought a Lorell High Executive Mesh chair for $150 6 years ago. It's really good for the price.

Back part is mesh so in the summer it keeps you cool. The memory foam seat has kept up as well and I've used it every single day for hours.

u/jai151 · 6 pointsr/Vive

I was going to counter with full body tracking but then I remembered these exist:

u/epik · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Wirecutter recommendations from 2012:

They like the Steelcase Leap the best. It's about $900 but you can sometimes find them on craigslist for $200-300.

They also say the Ikea Markus is great value at the price point of $200. It used to be $150 sometime last year, maybe it'll go on sale again. There are fabric version of the Markus that are a little cheaper.

Other people on reddit and various forums have stated their like for these from Amazon. Affordable and with some adjustments in the $150 range.

The Office Star Space Professional

The Lorrell Executive

The Herman Millers are outdated and overrated. The DX Racers are gimmicky and embarrassing. They are like the Beats of chairs. There is a reason racing seats are used in cars, the sides bolster you in place because of momentum during high speed turns. On a chair though, it's just pathetic.

Personally, I'm now leaning towards the Ikea Volmar. It seems to be a higher end chair to the Markus and you can find it on the site with headrest and armrest, only headrest, or without either.

Also found some generation 2 Leaps on craigslist I might check out, listed for $225. But I think I want a headrest for sure.

u/TeamRemix · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Can confirm, live in SoCal and sit on this beauty instead of leather.

u/HaldirAros · 5 pointsr/cynicalbritofficial

If I remember correctly TB said that the "gaming" chairs are mostly shot for your back.
During one podcast he mentioned that Genna got him Ergohuman chair. (this one I think: ) but they are expensive . Dogger and Strippin got the same ones.

u/Enturk · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/Jukka_Sarasti · 5 pointsr/OSHA

Ha! it's an older chair, so the closest thing I can find is this Alera Elusion Series Mesh Mid-Back Swivel/Tilt Chair, Black:

u/mobilesuitkpop · 5 pointsr/Gaming4Gamers

Herman Miller chairs are still some of the best.

I have one at home and one at work. They’re used extensively throughout production studios for tv/movies and they even use them at the Blizzard Arena in Burbank.

u/Lozerien · 5 pointsr/tall

I walked in to the office furniture store in my town, the 6'6" salesman spotted me, and sat me this chair. The seat height is 64 cm, which fit me perfectly. Since it's my personal property, I carry it from job to job.

This chair has an unusually high back and long seat. It's made in Taiwan, of all places; a quick check on Amazon UK does not show it available there.

Try and office furniture stores that cater to City (yes, I realize you're 400 miles away from there) firms, this is the only other place I've been to other than Amsterdam and Sarajevo where I didn't feel unusually tall.

But, not to despair; most office chairs have a standard 50mm diameter seatpost, you can replace the stock seatpost with a longer one.

u/jcskifter · 5 pointsr/battlestations

I am the proud owner of two Herman-Miller Aeron chairs (don't be fooled, you can really only use one at a time) and they are very comfortable and highly adjustable. That said, there's one complaint. For my height 5'11", the way my head lands on the back of the chair is extremely uncomfortable. I solved this by purchasing aftermarket add-on head rests that matches the styling of my chairs. Those too are adjustable and end up being the perfect upgrade from a business chair to a battle-ready captain's chair. I truly find this much more ergonomic than one of the racing style 'gaming' chairs.

u/Micrafone_AssAssin · 5 pointsr/medicalschool

If you can't find a Herman Miller Aeron 2nd hand I would recommend this Lorell executive chair from [Amazon] ( with the extra [headrest] ( I did a ton of research on best bang for the buck chairs at the beginning of med school and after looking through tons of reviews, this one seemed to have the most people who were satisfied years after purchase while fitting within my sub-200 budget.

I've sat it in everyday studying for >8 hours for almost 2 years now and it's still as comfortable as day 1. The seat and arm cushions haven't worn down at all. The mesh backing has stayed taut and is very breathable. The headrest is super comfortable. The adjustments are solid and it has a great recline. Set up is easy too. Obviously this is no Aeron but if you don't want to go 2nd hand, I think this is a fantastic option.

u/tolga7t · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you are in the market for a chair, I have this Storm Trooper looking chair and would highly recommend it:

u/Sticky69 · 4 pointsr/LOLDyrus ..... how do i know this? because i bought the same chair and its amazing.

u/DheeradjS · 4 pointsr/cynicalbritofficial

Herman Miller? They are expensive chairs though.

Or it might have been an Ergohuman

u/OutlyingPlasma · 4 pointsr/upholstery

Honestly, its probably not worth it. Materials alone will likely far exceeded the cost of a new chair, even using fake leather its probably still going to cost more just buying the fabric, let alone time and effort. A whole new chair like that will probably only cost ~$100.

Here's one for $80 that's on sale right now. Office Depot/Staples/Office Max are a good place to go try them out and fine a comfortable one if buying online is not your favorite.

u/SolarBarge · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Looks like a lazyboy office chair.

Edit: AmazonBasics Big & Tall Executive Chair

u/rsmjr · 3 pointsr/tall

AmazonBasics Big & Tall Executive Chair

I am 6'5" and rock this chair. I can't really put my head back on it, maybe a gaming chair could do that. But the back support and comfort is amazing. It has adjustable lumbar.

u/MrxPenguin · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Although they're both pretty much at your max budget, both of these options are really good chairs.

Chair 1
Chair 2

u/mrlucas · 3 pointsr/battlestations

I'm pretty sure I have that exact same chair. This is the one I bought:

u/caffpowered · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Reddit liked my last battlestation, so I decided to post my new, more portable solution.

My new battlestation was made under slightly more constraints. Everything I own fits into a single suitcase, as I moved to a New York City for work. When I got here, I found that my two laptops made a very unergonomic and uncomfortable workstation. TO remedy that problem, I sourced a few parts of Amazon.

I bought a stand for my tablet, two laptop stands meant for DJs, a wireless mouse and keyboard and a kneeling chair. Everything breaks down and fits into my suitcases except for the chair, which I would probably leave behind if I am forced to move again.

The tablet is used as a TV. I use it to watch documentaries, shows streamed from youtube, hulu, netflix or thepiratebay. The internal speakers on the tablet are a bit quiet, so I have them streaming to a Logitech UE Boom Mini. I've owned the two laptops since starting university - a Lenovo x200, and a x201 I bought a few years later to replace the x200 when it stopped detecting a battery. They're both pretty old now, but the x201 still manages to play league of legends (barely). The x200 (right) is hooked up to a set of Steelseries Siberia v3 headphones that I use for skype, or music / shows when my roommates are watching something else on the big TV, or are having loud sex. A small and surprisingly weak fan is constantly plugged in and does do a bit to keep me cool. I'll have to revisit the cooling solution when summer hits again.

I've considered upgrading the laptops, but then I figured I shouldn't be spending a lot of time inside gaming anyways. Instead, I bought a new snowboard for the upcoming season.

u/Scardaddy · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Had it for over two years, I sit in it 12+ hours a day. By far the best investment for my back and health. Previous chairs I have owned either broke or hurt my back or neck from the seating position. This is as good as a $1500 chair... Good luck OP

u/Du6e · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Depending on how much they're willing to spend, I'd highly recommend a Herman Miller Aeron with headrest. It's one of the best ergonomic chairs on the market that has a 'reasonable' price.

u/Norumu · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I splurged and got myself one of those stupid expensive Herman Miller Aeron chairs.

I do not regret it a bit. The mesh is wonderful in this warm environment I live in, it helps me keep extremely good posture (much better than my slinking I'd do before), is super adjustable for your needs, and still feels like new despite putting in hundreds of sitting hours.

u/robdizzle666 · 3 pointsr/battlestations

6' 5" here as well, I work in a used office furniture store. Herman Miller Aeron is one of the best chairs out there, they range around 400$ used. Personally I found this Boss chair to extremely comfortable, the headrest and added lumbar support are amazing. It's nowhere near the quality of Herman Miller though sadly.

Depending on your size, the Aeron chair comes in size B or C. I'm 300 Lbs so the size C suits me.

u/Sevallis · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Great tips, I ended up buying this chair and I recommend it to anyone due to how adjustable it is:
Alera ALEEL41ME10B Elusion Series... $187 currently, I bought mine open box for less and it has no problems.

And this headrest bolts right on:
Lorell Hi-Back Chair Mesh... $12.75 currently

I’m 6’ 1” 170lbs and this chair has all of the adjustments anyone could want and is very comfortable and supportive. I used to exacerbate sciatic nerve pain in my leg and hip when I’d sit in my old cheap office chair, it doesn’t hurt in this chair.

See Camel3 for more price information and to track it if you need to wait for a deal, my open box purchase was just a damaged packaging, but they come in once in awhile:

u/XJadynX · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well if I am dreaming big for something I really need it is This Chair As I have been saying my chair is old and rusted and I worry about it breaking. If not the chair itself a gift card twards saving for it ( which I am doing ) would be a TREMENDOUS help.

However knowing the price of the chair and going on the chance a Gift Card is not in the spirit of the contest Can I haz Kindle? Pweeeeeeeease?

anyways #2 for the raffle C'mon...gimme... pweease?

Thanks for the awesome contests guys :D

u/PaintballKitty · 3 pointsr/Etsy

This is what I got. It is a chair within a chair so when you lean forward the secondary support leans with you supporting your lower back and it gently pushes you into a good posture for your back.
It is a little pricey but I have some pretty bad spine issues and this helps me a lot and offers support when you lean forward. It comes with an extra option for the half seat that supports when you lean forward, one thick padded firm support that you can slide off if it is too big. The seat cushion also tilts when you lean a little to force your spine somewhat upright.

The other back in motion chairs are a little cheaper but IMO not as comfy or supportive.

u/johniib · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

Between those two I'd get the mesh one. When I was younger I was all over the (p)leather chairs but I moved onto the mesh ones due to better ventilation for the back.

What about this one? It's under $100 and has a ton of good reviews:

u/Xerokine · 3 pointsr/buildapc

The older I get the less I see the need for super fancy expensive stuff it seems. Use to get fancy leathery chairs that were hundred of dollars and now I got a mesh chair that's fairly cheap and can say it's been the best chair I have ever got so far. I'm surprised the price has gone up about $25 since I got it two years ago though.

u/Arvaci · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I actually attached this headrest to my chair and it works really great. Proper position and adjustability.

I did have to drill holes since the pre-drilled holes on the chair didn't align with the holes on the headset. But it certainly beats paying an extra $150.

u/dp__ · 3 pointsr/financialindependence

I still haven't decided - the DX Racer Iron Series is my favorite so far. I really want something in white + green, though. is my runner-up. $400 cheaper, which would be nice.

u/StrangerOfTheDay · 2 pointsr/gaming

Get something thats ergonomic.

I really dig this chair.

u/KnowsTheLaw · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

You're not going to get much neck support in a cheap chair. Same thing with the arm rests, being able to move them is generally a feature of a more expensive chair.

The third option here has a neck support, but that brings the price up to $270. We buy stuff this like for work. That's what I'd go with, in your price range.

u/FatCatFart · 2 pointsr/Frugal

I bought this and it was good: $164

u/ajdtech · 2 pointsr/msp

I'm too cheap to spend $500 on a chair. I've got these and I couldn't be happier. I think they're just as comfortable as the $700 Herman Miller chairs I had in previous jobs.

u/puh-tey-toh · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Everyone suggesting a used Herman Miller/Steelcase is certainly giving you the best advice, but if you're like me and couldn't find a used one in your city, this chair is fantastic for the money. I tested it against the Ikea Markus and it blew it out of the water in terms of build quality, IMO. And it's cheaper.

u/Righteous_coder · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'm a freelance web designer and gamer so I spend most of my time in my chair, this is what I use and have used the past 2 years with no issues. It's half the price and can lean very far back, scoot down in your chair and rest your head on the back for those of us who like to sit with terrible posture. It's not fancy but with my over 16 hours of sitting on average with an occasional break to get food and use the restroom, this chair does a great job. I highly recommend it. I've tried other chairs and most are either too firm or just plain uncomfortable. This is the best bang for your buck.

If you're dead-set on spending roughly $300 though these are the only chairs I think are really worth it. I've tested a few at Office Depot, I highly recommend you do the same so you're significant other can see what they really find comfortable. If I wanted to spend the money this is what I'd buy.

u/TittiesInMyFace · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

I really love this chair (SPACE AirGrid), especially for the price point off amazon. Great build quality, design, and back support. After 3 years of heavy usage my only complaint is that one of the arm rests has started to crack a bit. That said, if I could afford a Herman Miller or Global, I'd probably get that.

u/lukewarmandtoasty · 2 pointsr/SSBM

I tried out a LOT of chairs when I got into music production a decade ago. I've been using this since 2012 and never looked back. I'm 6'1" so I like a high back but there are normal back models too. I also took the armrests off to encourage better posture. There are a couple reviews talking about how the foam is too thin...they must be like 300 pounds or something because my brother's ~225 and he loves it too. Literally my only gripe is that after about 2 years of use it started getting a little rickety when I shift positions.

I also own this from the same company, and it's also great, but got even ricketier within a year and the fabric's not quite as nice. Surprisingly, the back cushion doesn't make nearly as much of a difference as I would've expected.

u/cheesynacho · 2 pointsr/pics

This chair almost perfectly matches the picture on the box, and has the same model number, now I can't see your link (silly staples making Canadian and US sites separate).

u/Pyrokills · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

I honestly can't think of a reason to spend so little on a computer chair, unless you're a casual computer user and are sitting at it for at most 3-4 hours a day. Even then you should be ponying up the cash for something with adjustable back support if you don't want back issues.
I sit at my desk on average 8 hours a day and the cheap $200-$300 chairs from office depot etc last me at most 3 years but usually 2 before falling apart. I then spend another $200-$300 and at that point I pretty much could've bought the Rolls Royce of chairs. So if you sit for as long as I do or longer, just take the hit and buy a solid, expensive chair.

However I understand not everyone can afford that even if they try and budget for it. There are pretty nice chairs (from what I've read) in the $400 range that aren't junk gaming chairs. Here's a list I've found but keep in mind I have never owned any of these but have just heard good things about them.

Lorell Executive

Alera Elusion


For the last one, the Ergo Chair. I've heard both great things about the chair but negative things about the company itself. The Chair/Company was kickstarted/crowdfunded and some reddit users complained of shady practices, but others got their chairs and loved it so take with that what you will. And as others have said, you can get the herman miller chairs, steelcase etc etc for the cheap and in good condition on craigslist and ebay etc. Companies sell them all the time.

u/bobbylight17 · 2 pointsr/Massdrop

Could a massdrop be done for office/computer chairs?

This one seems like a good middle ground chair:

u/RabidOctopus · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I got one of these from Amazon for work. I liked it so I got one for my home and so did my brother. Then other people from my work tried the chair while I was on vacation and 3 or 4 of them ordered it as well. I haven't heard any complaints.

u/kotn_ · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Just a generic knee chair. It is supposed to be good for your posture but I tend to not sit in it correctly

u/DatapawWolf · 2 pointsr/gamedev

> one of those kneeling chairs

TIL! I will have to look into some solutions for my posture.

The Vertagear Triigger 350 in black with white stitching. This chair is heavily inspired by the Herman Miller Aeron and the only ergonomic gaming-branded chair on the market. I'd get the optional headrest.

Apart from that there's the Ergohuman in pure black, which is sometimes on sale on black Friday.

All other ergonomic chairs cost way more. Personally I have the Ergohuman and I'm completely pain-free now, even after working 14+ hours at the desk.

Alera Elusion Series Mesh Mid-Back Multifunction Chair, Black

u/throttlekitty · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I bought one of these last year, and I'm happy with it. I opted not to get the armrests that swivel out and kind of wish I did. The seat and back don't unlock for a full backward tilt, so I can't do that lean back with a controller thing like i could with other chairs.

If you're able, check with your local office supply stores that aren't major chains, though those aren't terrible (best buy, office max etc). I found a place that does their own work alongside being an office supply, so they're using all the products they're showcasing. I couldn't afford most of their high end stuff, but ended up talking with practically everyone there and trying out a bunch of neat sit-stand desks.

Anyway, I learned the salesman as a dealer can customize some parts of the order instead of the usual pret-a-portier orders. Some manufacturers have this on their own sites, but you tend to pay a higher premium. Or the salesman's commission in my case, but I don't mind since I went for advice on a chair and got plenty. (well this ended up being a longer post than I meant)

u/wakwakwakwakwak · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

My first recommendation would be to search Craigslist. I purchased awesome, super expensive chairs on the cheap...Humanscale Freedom and Steelcase Leap for $100 or less each! The big brands you should look for are Herman Miller, Steelcase, Humanscale, and Knoll. There are probably other great brands and chairs, but that should be a good starting point.

If you don't find anything, Amazon actually has a few chairs that are <$200 and are pretty good. The AmazonBasics chair ( has good reviews. I personally have the Alera Elusion (, which also has good reviews. It's not as fancy as the Humanscale or Steelcase, but they're definitely comfortable and gets the job done.

u/clawedjird · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

I recently bought this and have been pleased with it so far.

The Alera Elusion is also recommended pretty frequently.

u/Ryan_for_you · 2 pointsr/Entrepreneur

Huge fan of this chair below. It was the only chair my dad would buy for the employees at his former workplace. He recommended I buy one so I did. I used to have it at home but I took it to work because our chairs were trash. Thinking about buying another for home. I sit in it for 8-11 hours a day and I’m always comfortable.

Not an Aeron, but I highly recommend this one below. It's really well built, and has more levers than a jet cockpit. I've purchased 6 of them for different people / different offices and they all love them.

And yeah South Coast Auction is great too. Sometime hit or miss though. Check back

u/DocMcNinja · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm moving and I'll need to get myself an office chair, too. I've made some research on this, and apparently good chairs cost closer to $1000 when new, but can frequently be purchased for $400 or less used. One specific model that's apparently among the best there is in that price range is Herman Miller's Aeron. Miller's Mirra would be a little less fancy, while still great for someone who's only used cheap chairs before, and with a less shocking price tag.

For people who can't afford that kind of monies, there is the already mentioned IKEA Markus. The cheaper price comes with drawbacks such as non-adjustable and shorter lasting arm rests. The expensive chairs have pretty much adjustable everything. I would be wary getting an used MARKUS, since I've heard of so many with worn out coating. Apparently it doesn't take many years until it starts to show visible wear and tear.

Around $200 seems to be the price point under which I won't be able to find the kind of chair I want new. Apparently that's the point under which the quality and life span of the product starts to go so low it won't be worth it. I'll be sitting on that chair for a large portions of my time, it's not worth a couple hundreds to spend so much of my life uncomfortably and possibly in an unhealthy position.

When looking at the prices, it's good to keep in mind that especially the more expensive chairs are often perfectly good when bought used, but come usually considerably cheaper. The lower quality cheap chairs usually have a shorter life span, so getting them used might just mean you'll need to get another soon when it breaks down.

Also, as a random thing my research has unveiled so far, a head rest might not be a desirable thing to have in a chair, as apparently it's healthier to sit without one.

[Amazon link](Alera Elusion Series Mesh High-Back Multifunction Chair, Black I bought this chair. It has most of the ergonomics of an aeron but is $200. I have one at home and got work to buy me one. I like it quite a lot. You can also buy a headrest that screws on.

u/abcteryx · 2 pointsr/videos

You'd be happier with a "traditional", well-reviewed chair in the $100-$200 Alera Elusion (High-back). Try searching the make/model of chairs on Reddit to get some differing opinions. I did some research on office chairs when I got mine a couple years ago. Long story short: generally a $50 chair is going to suck, stay away from "race" chairs, and if you've got a grand to drop then go with something like Herman Miller. But Alera isn't bad, and is in a reasonable price range.

u/Legendhidde · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Please don't buy one of those "gamer" chairs, this is for every major purchase, do NOT buy into the gamer bullshit. Those chairs may look good and sturdy, but they're everything but the best. Save your money and buy a proper ergonomic desk chair.

I hate how everyone is advertising these things, only because they're gamery.

Look at something like this
and this instead.

Buying into gaming chairs is just like buying into Gamer peripherals, like audio and keyboards. High prices, over the top looks but mediocre performance and awful build quality.

u/nakedR0B0T · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I have been wanting to get this chair, but I haven't tried it out and reviews of ergonomic chairs seem inconsistent.

u/mmtree · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I bought this Alera chair And its probably the best purchase I've made. I absolutely love the adjustments that are available and the seat doesn't become padded down. I also don't sweat in it when its 100 degrees during the summer. The only thing that might be missing is head support but that depends on how tall you are(for me, it works, the back actually goes up and down, for my 6'3" brother, it's not enough but still comfortable).

Could I post a question here about what office chair to get for ergonomic chair with lumbar support? If I can ask it; I need it for health reasons, my therapist said I need a better chair for my back and neck but I am having issues finding something that won't be trash and a waste of my limited money.

I found this on Amazon after filtering to good reviews but again, I have no experience in this whatsoever. My budget is $160-170 but I think if I really can't find anything good below $200 I might be able to push to that.

Ok I have this chair except I totally bought it from office depot.

I'm 6'1" and 365lbs. I've had this chair for 2 years. No breaking down of padding, no snapping parts, no nothing. It's great. I paid $120 for it and I love it. I know you said you'd need a high backed chair, but you really don't. If you absolutely do, I think they have one somewhere.

u/RocketHops · 2 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

Can't really speak to low priced chairs but something like this would probably be best.

Note that the armrests fold back instead of adjusting down, meaning you won't have to worry about them bumping into the bottom of your desk. I've also found mesh office chairs tend to have better back support than cushioned ones, unless you're getting one with an adjustable back support cushion, like you see on all the DxRacer gaming chairs.

u/dcstuff · 2 pointsr/hermanmiller

used for the head rest

You can probably get these all online, but Lowe's was cheaper.

2 x 3.5" tarp hooks -

2 x 1/4-20 nuts - just check the assorted nuts area

2 x 1/4-28 nuts - just check the assorted nuts area

2 x 1/4" Fender Washer - just check the assorted nuts area

2 x furniture glides with 1/4-20 threading - the ones I got at lowe's were Softtouch 4603695LW just look in the area where the other furniture felt bottoms etc are, I used these for reference (can't find the lowe's listing online)

The tarp hooks are just the right height that when you mount the headrest to the lower holes and slip the hooks under the back, the top holes pop just above the chair allowing you to attach the glides to hold it steady from the top of the chair with tension.

Headrest comes with 2 screws, use those to attach to the tarp hook with fender washer + the 1/4-28 nuts, hook into back, then attach the glides and nut them into place as well.

Guy on amazon reviews suggested it, and it worked out very wel. You can't adjust the depth of the headrest, which is the only complaint I would leverage, but I feel it's at a fine position, and you can easily move it up and down while attached. Overall it's a way cheaper alternative to the other ones designed 'for' an Aeron

u/thewalkingbrad · 2 pointsr/Cloud9

This is something I've had to deal with myself, as I had an office chair for my desk at home that I bought from an estate sale for like $30. After a few years the padding was worn out and I needed to buy a new chair. I went to all the local office supply stores and sat in everything I could. If you spend less than $100 the comfort is basically garbage. $200-$300 you start getting some more comfort but most of them are still pretty ugly or really not even that great.

I originally ordered the mesh high back, but the back really wasn't that high and it was absolutely aweful in terms of comfort, had to take it apart after putting it all together (not fun) and try to fit it back in the box (also not fun) in order to return it. I then order this back in January. Half the price of the name brand chairs but pretty decent still. It did have an odor that has mostly gone away, its pretty well built, rolls great, and for comfort I'd give it a 6.5-7 out of 10. I've noticed the longer I've used it, it's starting to feel a little wobbly on the base, but not enough to worry, just enough to think "do I need to invest in a new chair in a year or so?" I wish it came with a pillow for either lumbar support or the neck. You can tell the actual seat is probably molded plastic and is not comfortable for sitting cross legged. Looking at the DX Racer/Maxnomic their bucket style seating doesn't look to be as extreme. I also got it for about $30 less than what it's listed for now.

Final conclusion (tldr): If you want a new quality chair that will last and be comfortable you are going to probably have to spend $300 plus regardless if it's an office chair or "gaming" chair. If you are going to spend over $200 on a chair invest in something you know is well regarded and quality. I will definitely buy Maxnomic as my next chair because even spending $200 I feel the quality is still lacking for the price point. The fact that I can get it with the C9 logo is just icing on the cake.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions.

u/splatterhead · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I got cloth instead of leather because my cat likes to jump on the back of my chair when I'm gaming and his claws would totally fuck the cover up. If you don't have a cat, check this out... It's pretty much the same chair in leather for $100. I still recommend getting the caster wheels.

u/Tyhan · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I used for a year and it was okay, not my favorite. I don't remember any other specific models. I woulda been fine continuing to use that but I had to move back in with my parents and my mom hates the PU leather pieces getting all over the house when it wears out.

u/toastman42 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Man, what I have found in my search is comfortable, quality-made chairs are practically mutually exclusive with highly adjustable chairs.

The best-reviewed closest equivalent I've seen to your old chair is this AmazonBasics Big & Tall Executive Chair.

If you really want something with a tilting back, adjustable armrests, etc there is the the DXRacer Boss Series which is styled a little closer to a traditional office chair than the rest of DXRacer's lineup and is the big-and-tall variant of the DXRacer Elite Series chair. Of course, caveat emptor about gaming chairs.

u/mirkalieve · 1 pointr/gundeals

As someone who's tuned into deal sites: Yes, to some degree. But there's still plenty of good deals to be had. Especially when things don't go as planned. Don't you remember last year's Xbox One debacle? We're talking a free xbox one, and possibly additional credit, on top of extra controllers and games.

I also apparently got 24 bottles of VOSS Norwegian water this year for $3, and that stuff is supposed fancy or something. Ordered that for giggles.

Someone else got a Mini Segway for $160 iirc.

I nabbed one of their Big & Tall (up to 350lb) Office Chairs for $100, which isn't bad.

As for Prime Pantry? For some reason I keep getting a Fresh Credit of $6, no idea why, and that stacks with the $10 off $60 credit, so I can find some choice pantry items that are decently priced and get $16 off, and stack it with free shipping. And that's on top of the 5% off with my Amazon Store Card. I did four full orders, and my mail person hates me now.

Prime Day is not Black Friday. Black Friday is a day of both Purchases of Opportunity and Planned Purchases, due to general price cuts on everything (To some degree... Cyber Monday and beyond is where it's at currently at based off last year). Prime Day is only Purchases of Opportunity, as the thing you've wanted probably won't go on sale, but chances are if you check the deal sites enough you'll find things that you'll buy anyway because they're cheap enough.

Sidenote: This is what you guys should being paying attention to: Lowe's 10% off, which stacks with 10% Self-generated coupon codes (see top comment), which stacks with 7.5% cashback through ebates.

u/clupean · 1 pointr/buildapc

From my experience office chairs are better for people who sit all day but they're not meant to make you feel confy to the point of falling asleep, you're supposed to be working on them. Gaming chairs are more confy but only during the first ~2-3 hours then they're not so confy anymore. Gaming chairs also deteriorate faster if you use them all day as if they were office chairs. One isn't better than the other, they're just for differente use cases. There are $200 confy office chairs as well, but they're often just gaming chairs disguised as executive chairs.

I have a standard sized desk with my computer and a TV mounted 7' from the floor, so I would be using the leanback/tilt often while using my consoles or casting TV.

I feel constrained in my current 'office chair' that I got in 2012.

Lorell Executive High-Back Chair

u/rebelx · 1 pointr/buildapc

Can someone please comment on the following chairs?

I currently use the Staples Torrent, but after spending the past two months in it for more than 12 hours/day studying, I realized that I can't do that anymore. It needs to go. My shoulders and back hunch forward and my thighs start to hurt after a bit as well. It was great in the beginning--granted I never sat this long for such an extended period of time--but now it's just aggravating.

I don't want leather/"leather" anymore. I need ventilation. Mesh only. I wish someone had told me this sooner.

I'm looking at this from Amazon (Lorell LLR86200 or its newer variant (actually, based on the reviews it might be a different model style entirely) the LLR86205. The first chair in particular has a significantly number of positive reviews.

From Office Depot, we have the Realspace Pro Quantum 9000 Series that was recommended previously by a redditor. Lots of reviews on the site, but also much more expensive as it's $279 from them.

From Staples, the Staples branded Hyken which has favorable reviews and the Acadia, but some people have commented about it not being great for sitting too long.

Lastly, I just discovered Madison Seating from a redditor comment, but I have never heard of it nor know why their prices are significantly lower than the competition. For example, the Herman Miller Mirra at $499 or the Leap Steelcase v2 at $575.

I just want something that will not cause me pain anymore.

For the most part, my budget from Amazon is $250 (max). If it's something that costs a little bit more, that'd be OK--it'll eventually go on sale and I can pick it up at the lower price.

Everywhere else (Staples/OD/etc) it's a budget of $150-200 if at all possible.

If it's for one of the higher end chairs (e.g., from Madison Seating), I'd really have to think about it and see if the jump from any of the listed chairs makes a difference.

EDIT: Online review of Madison Seating show that they take used chairs, refurb them, and then sell as new. I'll skip that retailer.

u/MarzMan · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have a Lorell which is pretty good except for the hydraulic piston which I replaced with a larger one. The mesh is very durable and fairly comfortable.

Just looking, amazon has some cheap mesh chairs and they look to be highly rated. Seat padding looks sub-par but the flip up arms is an awesome feature.

These types are the gold standard gaming chair but they are made for a specific body type and I don't fit that mold even remotely, I'm far too tall and wide for them so I've never even wanted to try them out. This is most likely a knockoff brand. DXRacer is the one brand I've looked at, they've been around a few years.

u/djyoshmo · 1 pointr/OfficeChairs

Secretlab's Titan series is supposed to be better than even many of the ergonomic mesh options out there. At $400 (USD I presume?) you can get a LOT of chair, and you can even start looking into the Herman Miller options.

I just picked up this chair from amazon, and even at the 120 I spent on black friday it's a great buy. Upgrading from a terribad years old leather chair to this baby was a revelation. And if you want a headrest, you can always buy one for it aftermarket for like 20 bucks.

Looking at the chairs you posted, I would honestly not bother spending so much money on something that's not necessarily name brand. You can get something of similar quality for 200 USD less (the chair I mentioned is very highly rated everywhere I've looked)--if you're trying to spend your full budget, I'd seriously look into Herman Miller and see if you can find any good deals/sales. Patience is going to be key when it comes to buying a decent chair--the prices can fluctuate anywhere from 30 to hundreds of dollars on a whim.

Good luck!

u/hellokhoi · 1 pointr/buildapc

I ride a Herman Miller Aeron at work, and nothing else really compares. But fuck me if I'm gonna spend $500+ on chairs for the house ... I've found Lorell Executives to be an excellent value and a great chair (adjustable, super ergonomic, good size) for long hours on the computer. I'm a big guy and wreck lesser chairs (every Ikea and Office Depot/Max chair ever)in a matter of months but the Aeron and Lorell chair have held up.

Thanks for recommendation. I'm just not sure if I like bass all that much. I listen to music very little. I would use them for playing videos games (primarily FPS) and watching YouTube, hulu, and Netflix. So I'm planning on going with the The Shure SRH1540 ($499) when I save up.

All my parts should be here by Thursday.

Amazon a day later sold the video card and SSD card cheaper right after I bought those parts -_-

Also I was looking at computer chairs. Needed a 2nd option on this. I can only spend $210 on this. I know you are no chairologist expert but... I was looking at these two...

Edit:[ I'm think I'm going to be getting this one...

I like the way the leather ones look but it's not real leather. In the near future I'm going to be sitting at my desk for many hours everyday so I need to it last and be comfortable. Looks okay but yea. You Have any input? ]

Just for chair shoppers, I got from this site like a year ago for around $150 I think. Upgraded from that white $60 ikea chair. It's way better than the ikea one and has served me well. Im sure there are way nicer chairs though. I would recommend staples for trying some styles first but this is a good chair for someone who wants a not cheap chair but doesnt want to spend over $200 on a chair they have never tried out. This is just meant as starting advice for someone looking to upgrade a cheap chair. Look for a chair with some adjustment options.

I have this chair with these added arm rest covers, and it's amazing. I spend A LOT of sitting these days (yay dedicated!), and it keeps me comfortable.

u/bigmeanjoegreen · 1 pointr/buildapc

This right here. I own it personally, before this I had a cheap Walmart chair that would destroy my back and bum after a few hours of sitting in it. But this chair... this chair is amazing it's got a really good angle on the recline, the seat is real comfortable and doesn't hurt the ass bone, after a 5-6 hour gaming session no back pain or terrible uncomfort when you get up, and all around totally worth the $150 for it.

u/Cloudbuster274 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Another chair that is cheaper is This Chair, it's $150 bucks or so, it's not as good as an actual Herman Miller but for the price its great. I got it two years ago and it's still going great.

u/AddictionsoLA · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I got my dxracer for a whopping $103.00 on Monday, but that ship has sailed. =/

I like the mesh back chairs, I use at work and like it alot.

u/phiegnux · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

very good, reasonably priced chair.mesh back helps with back getting hot, seat is quite comfy, i think mine is slowly loosing its cushion-ness, but still very supportive (had it for over a year). seat also has a lot of adjustment (seat tilt, back tilt, height). only complaints i guess would be there is not any arm rest adjustment and nothing really in the way of lumbar support. but again, for the money, this chair should make anyone happy.

u/psychicsword · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Im not exactly sure how BIFL this is but I actually just bought the Lorell LLR 86200 a few days ago because it was the same brand as the chairs in my office that have lasted a while and gave me a great deal. Based on the Amazon review it has lasted 2-3 years for a reviewer and compares well to the Aeron.

Personally having only sat in it for a few days I can only say so much but it feels really solid and it is very comfortable for me.

u/shenuhcide · 1 pointr/flexibility

Not sure if these will help, but here's an article of a few stretches you can try.

Anecdotally, here are things I do to make my lower back feel good:

  1. Sleep with a pillow between my legs. I convinced my boyfriend to do this and he wonders why he hasn't been doing it all his life.

  2. Switch to a more ergonomic chair at work. The one I have looks something like this. I've also tried a fitness ball, but found that to be too distracting and a little short for my desk. I'm also considering to changing to a standing computer setup (an elevated work station in which I stand the whole day rather than sit), but that's a bit more of a commitment than a $60 chair.

  3. At home, on a carpeted surface or some sort of fitness mat, lay down and hug your knees to your chest. Now slowly rock side to side and in a circular motion, making sure to put a little pressure on your lower back. This releases so much tension for me.

  4. When looking for stretches, look for ones that "open up" the hips and stretch out your hip flexor muscles such as these.
u/Furryhen · 1 pointr/pics

I have a kneeling chair that I love. Mine is from the 80's, but it's something like this and it is surprisingly comfortable.

u/kachapati · 1 pointr/AskDocs

I'll wear a lightweight scarf, loosely hanging down the front, which kind of obscures the view. Seriously, whenever I've noticed someone staring it's always a woman with a judgey look on her face!

See if you can find a chair that looks like this to try. If it seems comfortable and your boss won't buy it, ask if you can get one to bring in.

u/oi_rohe · 1 pointr/Competitiveoverwatch

I have a kneeling chair which I don't always use because it does make my legs sore quickly but I feel like I play better in it than a normal chair

u/only_a_name · 1 pointr/ChronicPain

Sure...I think the first one I got was this one and I just bought this one, just because it was a little less ugly.
: )
They are cheaper than I remember, actually! I think they are both equally good. I also tried this one, which I didn't like because the padding was too thick--it just didn't quite work with my body type--but it might be good for someone larger.

I'd definitely recommend trying one, especially at these prices--using one really made a difference for me. It takes a few days to get used to it--your knees might hurt in the beginning, but that stops after a short time, especially if you take breaks, and also your back muscles may need to learn how to support your body, but that's a good thing. Overall I think the chair essentially forces you to have good posture, and that's huge for most types of back pain

u/DarthContinent · 1 pointr/AskReddit

If you're a fan of good posture, one of these works great, but if you get one invest in some additional padding or you'll eventually hate having sore shins all day.

u/metamet · 1 pointr/ProgrammerHumor

I got this one:

And later got this cushion for it, bc the padding just isn't enough:

Good combo.

u/shmeeps · 1 pointr/90daysgoal

Have you ever tried a kneeling chair? My boss has one and swears by it for her lower-back issues!

u/sonsofaureus · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

yeah, the space is a little tight. I usually find furniture/spaces have to be multifunction in tighter spaces. Desks = desks + TV media storage.
TV = second screen for either of the desktops + a TV

Good thing is that your desks are only 2ft deep though.

Maybe one of these alternative chairs or stoools for seating.

or one of these TV wall mounts that allows movement forward, so you can just bring the TV out when seated in the couch.

u/calle__ · 1 pointr/Posture

Something like this:

But i would recommend that you get a standing desk instead.

However it is good to start somewhere. :)

u/LankyJon · 1 pointr/LawSchool

My friend gets huge back pain, and he swears by his kneeling chair. You might want to take a look. Something like this.

u/TucaTuca · 1 pointr/Fitness

Do you think a kneeling chair would help all of that?


The answer is a resounding NO.

u/skyrocketing · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I've heard very good things about this chair:

A little over budget but worth looking into.

u/VergingRivals · 1 pointr/battlestations

I've had some old injuries in lower back, and never really invested too much into chairs until this. Changed my life tbh.

u/Transfinite_Entropy · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/th12eat · 1 pointr/buildapc

I spent $700 on my Ergonomic chair. I am a Software Engineer and gamer. The majority of my day is in it. My Wife was so freakin' mad... until she sat in it. I have the Ergohuman High Back Swivel Chair with Headrest, Black Mesh & Chrome Base off Amazon. Highly recommend based on your requests. Obviously above your max, but, it's not terribly so, if you think you can justify it.

u/TheDrov · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

I decided to go with this for my current setup - ErgoHuman Chair.

It is amazing!

u/thanos023 · 1 pointr/sysadmin

This bad mama-jama right here. Best piece of furniture I've ever had the pleasure of sitting on.

u/SuperObviousShill · 1 pointr/guns

> Herman Miller Aerons

Not really what I am looking for, nor do I think its what iggins is looking for. We're looking for something like this where you can fully lean back your head, while still being in a position to see and work.

u/MorRochben · 1 pointr/cynicalbritofficial

I don't think at all that a 600$ chair is that expensive for a chair. Just think about how many hours you'll be using that thing. If you work from home it's completely worth it.

If we where to only use it one year and only when on working time with a regular 40hour work week you'd get: 52 * 40 = 14600 hours. 624$(the chair TB recomended) / 14600 is just a 4.2 cents per hour of use for good support and personal health while in that same time making a bit more money than you spend.

u/BiscuitKnees · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I have had an ErgoHuman ME7ERG since 2007 and it's still going strong today. Love, love, love this chair:

Purchased for around USD $500 back then; they're a little more today.

u/RotonSan · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

If you had not budget limitation I would recommend Ergohuman ME7ERG-W09-01W09-01 Black Mesh Hi Swivel chair from [Amazon] ( Since you’re not looking for a long term investment, you can find a decent from [visit here] ( Just make sure you can sit in it all the way back, with your lower back fully supported.

u/lukerobi · 1 pointr/buildapc

There is no such things as a good $100 chair.

This is the only chair I buy anymore.. I bought 1 a few years ago, and now this is the only chair I buy for the office guys too. It is amazing and it has a life time warranty (which I have easily taken advantage of on some of the chairs i have purchased).

Don't be cheap on a chair.. your back will thank you.

u/merica_f_yeah · 1 pointr/cscareerquestions

I've been using this one for 3 years. I've done 12 hours days in this thing with no problems.

u/Cheetohz · 1 pointr/Spokane

This doesn't answer your question, but my work buys us new chairs every year. I've been through a ton of chairs.

I got three years ago and refuse to give it up.

My advice is to order this and don't look back.

u/MisterDeadeye · 1 pointr/OpTicGaming

They get a lot of their stuff from IKEA. Check there.

Also this is similar and this is a well regarded chair:

u/CReaper210 · 1 pointr/buildapc

This isn't specifically a PC question, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a decent chair for both PC gaming and console gaming(where you sit a little further back and want to lean backwards a little).

I've been looking at this one after reading some recommendations, but my only problem with it is there isn't any kind of headrest part. I'm not looking for anything fancy, but just something reliable(my current chair has leather peeling off and slowly sinks by itself, forcing me to constantly pull the lever and raise it).

u/mikefromearth · 1 pointr/gaming

This chair is probably unbeatable for the price.

The Alera Elusion Series Mesh Mid-Back Multifunction Chair.

It's breathable, super comfortable, very adjustable and very well-built.

I've been using one for a year now and I love it.

u/Shado_Temple · 1 pointr/Twitch

I got this one a few months ago, and it's been kicking ass so far.

u/IAmADerpAMA · 1 pointr/funny

Wherever this is, they have more money in spare chairs than I do in my bank account. I'd recognize a Herman Miller Aeron anywhere.

PS: Anyone know where I can buy one used, because I ain't got $1000.

u/TurtleInTraining · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

What's your budget?

The best chair I've sat on was the Aeron chair by Herman Miller. These were a chair provided to me by my employer in the office. This is an ergonomic chair that focuses on back health and has a mesh construction to avoid sticking and allows for better breathing. This is around $1,000, unfortunately.

I own a Aeron alternative that I'm sitting on that is a pretty good alternative. It's closer to $400, but it's an office max exclusive chair called the WorkPro Quantum. Has most of the ergonomic features the Aeron does.

u/Jajuca · 1 pointr/battlestations

> used aeron chairs go for 800$ canadian from any retailer, source amazon

u/AndrewLB · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'm also in the market for a new chair. I'm sick of the fake leather (PU Leather, Bonded Leather, etc) chairs that ive unfortuantely been using for far too long and my back is forever thankful for it. I've looked at chairs ranging from $100 up to $900 and while I do enjoy the borrowed SteelCase Leap that im currently sitting in, I could never justify the price for this thing. Dont get me wrong, its built like an tank and will likely last decades instead of years, But its just not for me.

If you want a chair like the SteelCase Leap, they can be found for very reasonable prices used for as low as $275 here:
So many great chairs sat in board rooms, offices, etc and were hardly used and are widely available.
They even the Herman Miller Aeron Semi-Loaded Size B, slightly used of course for $475. That's a $1100 chair new!

As for me, im looking at buying either the Alera Elusion Series Mesh High-Back Multifunction Chair found here:

Or the Office Star High Back ProGrid II.

u/bl1ndside · 1 pointr/funny

This is the chair you want. The office I work at purchased the mid-back version and I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was. Since I'm a slacker I like to have a high back so I can lean back. I've used the same chair now for over 2 years and it's still going strong. Little to no wear and I expect it to last a while longer.

u/Metalsand · 1 pointr/k12sysadmin

That would be swell, but no generally we just take space when we can get it. We only have the helpdesk and IT offices for room.

I will say this though - Tribesigns makes some really nice and inexpensive tables that are perfect for this. $100 for a 4 foot by 2 foot table with a steel base and 2 inch thick particle board top. The L-shaped desk is a bit thinner AFAIK.

Normal rectangular desk
55"x 24"

L-shaped desk
-66.14“(Long Side) x 49.21"(D) x 29"(H)

Also, this is my favorite "value" chair.

Only $200 but it's pretty darn robust not to mention comfortable.

One more note: avoid office supply stores like the plague, especially the chairs. While this seems counter-intuitive, the durability/performance of the chairs compared to price is half what you can get elsewhere, and generally everything is overpriced.

u/cleesus · 1 pointr/buildapc

Well honestly you would know better than me how well something would hold up to a cat. Bonded Leather is cool for a short period of time, but after awhile it peels off so im not sure how well that would hold up to a cat either.

But there is a couple chairs id recommend on amazon.

This one is frequently at $153 if you wait a bit, price seems to go in between that and $193

This one can be bought directly from staples for cheaper

u/tpbutch · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Sorry, my last sentence wasn't worded well--just fixed it. Meant that the Aeron is a great choice. The chair I ended up buying was from Amazon Don't let the ugly scare you :)

u/Bundleojoy · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

Wasn't addressed to me but I have this chair and love it. My wife also loved it so much that she kept fucking stealing it so I bought here one as well. Relatively cheap ergo chair and has held up well for the past 4 years.

u/JustSomeKiddd · 1 pointr/buildapc

Hi! Ergo nerd chiming in because it doesn't seem like a lot the people in this thread know what they're talking about. I've researched chairs extensively and the plain, but not so simple answer is - it depends. The two most important however are your height, and budget.

There's no one chair fit all, so really the best thing you can do for yourself is get a chair with as many adjustments as possible so you can sort of mold it around your body. A lot of chairs don't come like this out of the box, and usually the one's that do will break your wallet without any remorse.

Anyway, I'm 5'6", and poor, so I currently use this chair.

This is by far the best chair at the low end you can get, and I sit in it comfortably for 8-10 hours a day.

Also this nerd on youtube seems to know what he's talking about and has a few videos that give you the quick know how on what you should be looking for.

This article is really good for reference too!

Do yourself a favor and get decent lumbar support. Your body will thank you.

And as a side note. The chair I recommended is 1000x better than the Markus in every way possible.

u/Neverlife · 1 pointr/buildapc

I was in the market for a chair about 6 months ago and it seemed to me like the options were;

  1. Find something on craigslist

  2. Buy something from a random Office Depot or Target or whatever

  3. Pay $300+ for a nice chair

  4. Buy this chair on Amazon (Edit: It was $150 when I bought it.. I swear)

    I went with #4. It's not a phenomenal chair, but it's pretty good. I've been using it for 6 months with little issue, it's comfy, it stays cool, it has a bunch of settings so you can tweak it to fit how you sit. I give it a solid 7/10.
u/SirBuckeye · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I recommend the Alera Elusion chair for $166.

It has tons of adjustments including seat tilt and depth. It's very comfy and seems to hold up well.

u/frogmum · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This Alera Elusion $190.99 is pretty awesome. I've been using it for a couple months now. I like that it's a fabric seat so my skinny ass doesn't slide off. The padding is very thick and I doubt it will wear out anytime soon. I bought some memory foam elbow rests because I didn't really like the hard rubber style that came with it. I also got some black fleece fabric to put on the back rest to make it a little more cushiony.

u/seishi · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I've had this for about half a year and have enjoyed it

u/buffalolsx · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Modway Edge Office Chair with Mesh Back and Black Leatherette Seat

u/furdog111 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

No, any chair with a comfortable seat and a back that stays in an upright position is your best option.

I got this chair on sale and it has been the best chair I have ever gotten by far.

Don't buy into gimmicky "gaming" chairs cause they aren't anything special. They are solid chairs if you want to spend that much, though. Buy something inexpensive that has a solid rating.

u/The_Truthkeeper · 1 pointr/buildapc

This one has worked out very well for me, although I'd recommend buying a seat cover to go with it because the fake leather is pretty bad.

u/revo515 · 1 pointr/battlestations

i was going to get this one HeadRest It looks just like the chair it self and can adjust to just about any angle.

u/MooG1337 · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

Black friday is coming up. A few years ago i bought my head rest on sale on amazon during black friday week, so it may be worth keeping an eye on that.

Got it for like $50 off.

It was this one and i really like it.

Engineered Now Headrest for Classic Herman Miller Aeron Chair - H3 Carbon (COLORS MATCH CLASSIC AERON CHAIRS 2016 AND EARLIER MODELS)

u/RaidBoss3d · 1 pointr/buildapc

I felt the same way but honestly I never even noticed it.

However, if you must this one is made for it

u/Ninjaba · 1 pointr/battlestations

I use the H3 model from this company. Looks like there's a newer H4 model that wasn't available yet when I purchased mine years ago. Not sure if the price difference is worth it over the H3, but you might as well get the H4 anyway.

The headrest is pretty sweet, it's fully adjustable and stays in whatever position you keep it in. Also the fabric and color are pretty much identical to the Aerons, it's like it was made by Herman Millar themselves.

u/M4rkster · 1 pointr/battlestations

It looked similar to the one I saw on Amazon:

I have been trying to find someone on here who has it and see what they thought about it. Anyways, thanks for the reply!

u/Jakomako · 1 pointr/buildapc

Honestly, your best bet is to go to a store that sells chairs and try them out. You should be able to tell which ones are sturdy enough for you, plus it'll be a lot easier to figure out what's comfortable.

I spend a lot of time in various conference rooms for work, and I was very pleased with this chair:

I don't know how durable it is though because the place that had them had just bought them a few months prior.

u/IntellectualBurger · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/Kairus00 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Hmm, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that. The back tilts like a pretty standard office chair. The bottom is adjustable, it can slide in or out.

This is the chair:

u/slippery_salmons · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I was in your boat a few months ago and was set on a dxracer. After a lot of research and looking into it I went with this Lorell office chair. I'm very happy with it.

u/mong_mon · 1 pointr/tall

Although I am not super expert in this field but, I have two recommendation for you, its under your budget hopefully it would be comfortable too (based on customer review). first one is Flash Furniture Vinyl Executive Office Chair and the second one is Flash Furniture High Back Leather Chair. didn't search at UK market but Flash Furniture is a big brand and I am sure they have covered their UK market.

u/DifferentAnt · 1 pointr/battlestations

When I was looking for a good chair I thought about the DX Racer. I really wanted one but looking back I'm kind of glad I didn't get one they seemed a bit to exaggerated. I ended up getting one from amazon, that to this day I really like. it's kind of big and "bulky" but pretty damn comfortable where I can easily sit in every night for 5+ hours.

A big problem I think is that DX Racers are mostly given to streamers/youtubers for free or at a very discounted price and one can't complain about something free.

This is the chair I got.

u/Jalamba · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Holy, no way, chairs are super important, especially if you are going to sit for multiple hours. In the long run, having a good chair will improve you long term health and should stop back pain. And with him bring 12, it's better to have a good foundation earlier so he doesn't much up his life.

Anyways, I am also looking for another chair and I've narrowed it down to two for 100-150 (96-143 Euro i believe).
here's one

and the other

If not, an AkRacing sounds good

u/Vir1lity · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Thanks! New Ultrawide 34" is on the way to complete the setup, can't wait to get it tomorrow!!

Here is the chair, I don't remember paying 150 for it but could have. The arms fold up and its good for the most part. My only complaint is the cushion is a bit lacking.

u/BabyJesusStig · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I was where you are currently and I went and looked at a friends DX Racer....sure it is nice but when I really looked at it, besides the aesthetics of it, it was the same chair I had at home. I swear most of the parts were the exact same.

This is what I have... if I remember right it was actually a little cheaper...perhaps it was on sale...anyways I got it about 3 years ago and I have had to tighten one screw on it a few times but other than that it is a great chair.

Side note, I chose that one just because it was white/black and I wanted to keep my PC room theme going...

I ordered this one off Amazon for $99 and free shipping. It won't arrive until tomorrow but looks promising based on reviews.

If anyone owns this chair I'd love to hear your opinions on it and know how it's held up after some daily use.

u/wubbuh-lubba-dub-dub · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Thanks dude! The chair is actually made by Serta - super comfy:

u/thraxxximundar · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I'm 6'5" with lower back issues so I got this chair. It's not as tall as some chairs I've used but it is by far the most comfortable.

u/Unholybeef · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This looks stupid amounts of comfy. I might get it for myself come payday.

u/PriceLsRight · 1 pointr/thedivision

just bought a new Serta chair because my current chair is giving me all kinds of lower back problems heres a link

u/smile_e_face · 1 pointr/buildapc

This one is definitely out of your price range, but I have seen it go for $150 on sale. It's stupidly comfortable, breathable (no back sweat), and supportive without being too hardcore. It's a great chair for us big and tall folks, because the mesh back goes up all the way to provide support to your spine and your head. The only reasons I replaced it with my DXRacer are that it (a) doesn't have adjustable arms and (b) needs just a little more lumbar support. But if you aren't three inches from your monitor like I am (bad eyes) that latter probably won't be a problem, and the arms only needed to be wider, not higher, to suit my shoulders. I used it for over three years, and it still worked as well as the first day without any maintenance, other than the occasional WD-40. Now that it belongs to my dad, he won't trade it for anything.

I've also heard good things about this chair from a friend, but I haven't tried it myself. It seems to suit his scrawny self perfectly, though.

And while I understand that budgets are a reality we all have to deal with, I'd recommend splurging a little on a quality desk chair. Your back and shoulders will thank you in the long run, particularly as you get older. I'm only 26, and I've already noticed a definite change in how much bad posture my body is willing to put up with.

I would look at Amazon, my boss has just ordered some of these:

Mid-Back Black Mesh Swivel Task Chair with Mesh Padded Seat and Flip-Up Arms

I'm a big fan of this chair. The arms fold up so I can play guitar sitting in it and it rolls under the desk top nicely. It's very comfortable and stays cool. My old chair used to make me sweat cause the back and base were leather material. The one I linked is just fine, at least for me.

u/ThePeaceBeast · 1 pointr/gaming

I am in the same situation, I plan on buying this chair. The arms swivel up out of the way, and the price has dropped a bit since I have been looking.

His wife suggested an office chair. I ordered this one - - but the link diddn't finish. Do you think it's good, or do you have any suggestions on another?

u/ductyl · 1 pointr/PSVR

I ordered this one from Amazon for my VR chair, primarily for the flip up arms (so it could be used in "cockpit" games, as well as "flail your arms around" games). I'm really pretty happy with it for this purpose.

I chose to leave the wheels off when assembling it, so that it will "stay put" in the prime VR camera zone, but still allow rotation.

I'm 5'11" and about 210. Usually I can get a year out of a chair before it goes to hell. This one I bought two years ago and still love it as much as the day I bought it.

It's really comfy and has lots of adjustments to fit your sitting style.
I bought an attachable headrest for it as well the link is below.

Lorell Hi-Back Chair Mesh Headrest, Black

u/Targoviste · 1 pointr/Surface

Very nice, wish I could justify owning one on top of a nice PC. Already love my surface book so much.

I think I can see a Lorell chair there, I recently got this headrest for it and am very happy with it compared to the plain hard plastic top.

u/deadprezrepresentme · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Eyeing the Staple Hyken. Thoughts on mesh? Is it comfortable enough on the seat? I've only ever had padded seats before.

And what about something like this?

u/jcNils · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

I prefer something that comes through Amazon like FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) than FBM (by merchant)
but the knock off seems more expensive

It also seems that thechair you posted never went on black Friday sale.

For 200 CAD I would go with the armlets Ikea JÄRVFJÄLLET.

Some people mentioned before about paying great prices on some top office chairs if you look for used, but in the city I am living is kind of hard to find them in stock on the design stores, and I never saw they listed on kijiji here.

u/Azara1th · 1 pointr/battlestations

Amazon Basics also has a copy of that chair, it's what I have and they look identical.

u/jersace · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Honestly a really good start!

I agree that a plant would work perfectly, this setup is screaming for some color.
Switch the placement of the TV and desk (watch TV in bed, homie!), and add a curtain over all the windows (especially where the TV would go, to avoid sun burning your eyes out when you wake up)
And swap out the black chair for a brown desk chair.

I currently have this chair and I love it. I’ve only had it for about 5 months, so I can’t comment on how well it holds up long term, but so far I’ve had no problems. I find it very comfortable, especially on my lower back.

I’ve heard good things about Herman Miller chairs as well, but they seem pricey.

u/Shanix · 0 pointsr/buildapc

I can recommend this chair for about 180 dollars (including tax). It can hold a good 400lb easy without creaking or showing signs of distress, the back is very breathable, and the cushion retains its shape very, very well.

I sit in this thing for maybe 8 hours a day, most every day. It's very comfortable, has good back support, and is an all-around good chair.

It's also cheap. Ish.

u/awwaygirl · 0 pointsr/whatisthisthing

I think it's a knee chair - my mom had one that looked similar to the picture.

You don't need more than a 750 Ti to play PC games at more than 30 FPS and you don't need more than 4GB of ram to install Steam.
But you pay more because you want nicer stuff.
This is probably the worst sub Reddit to be on if you think that nice things aren't worth the money. And the DX Racer isn't even that expensive. My boss has an Aeron. And a lot of people have that chair.
So really, the DX Racer is actually a bargain if you're someone who actually spends money on the thing they sit on for a percentage of your LIFE during a given year.

u/Schrammbo · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace this looks like it

u/ProbablyPissed · -1 pointsr/battlestations

Nah, if you're going to spend that kind of money on a chair, get something like this.

u/HolyCringe · -6 pointsr/buildapc

Get a mesh back OFFICE chair off of amazon. 150$.

This is the exact one I have. Puts together in 5 minutes even if you are an idiot. Amazingly comfortable and resilient. Good on your back and butt.

Don't waste money on some other type of chair. The only thing BETTER that you can get is something like an Aeron..but those are anywhere from 700-1500$.

Take it from the people WHO WORK IN THEM...they work.

And for that matter...dont buy anything sponsored by pro gamers.

-Want a good headset for cheap? Get a midrange sennheiser and a modmic. want something a bit better? Get a vmoda m100 crossfade with a vmoda boom mic cable.

-Dont bother with gsync monitors, they wont be around that long. There are software alternatives that are maturing quite well, and by the time you REALLY need that 144hz wont need gsync.

-Want louder better sound? for low price get a fiio kilimanjaro 2 e11k. Want one for more expensive? get a good amp/dac, check Head-Fi(website).

-Want a good keyboard and mouse? Dont buy razer.

I use a Roccat MK pro keyboard, after going through three razer mech keyboards...they are just shit. I would recommend a Das Keyboard, But to be honest, I like the function's that gamer keyboards allow, Das doesnt really have that option. Also look up the different switch types, the actuation pressure makes a big difference.....

Good mouse? Get a Steelseries or a Zowie or a good logitech mouse(g502 or so)

-good webcam? get an actual video camera. hook it up to your research.

I repeat, the Pros get PAID to use the things they do....You do not. Do not constrain yourself to cheaply built things.
