Just bought a Killabee 8212. Pretty comfortable for me.
I couldn't agree more, if you're looking for a really good and ergonomic chair there are few better options than Herman Miller, and buying a used chair is a great idea if you don't want to pay the full price for getting it directly from the distributors. However, this is specially the case for tall people, a friend of mine bought a used Herman Miller and it had the opposite effect for her because the lumbar support wasn't ideal for her height. I guess there isn't a perfect solution that would work for everybody, it's important to look for information and reviews online but it's also very important to try the chair and make sure it works for you.I've tried a number of different chairs over the years. I've found that when I was younger, I could get comfortable on pretty much any chair. As I got into my late 30s and now my early 40's having a GOOD chair become more and more important, or I would be in pain. Especially if sitting in it for prolonged periods of time.
As discussed earlier in this thread, I purchased a used Herman Miller Aeron chair a few years ago. As I am tall I purchased a size C. They asked $375 for it. It was and still is in great shape. These things are tanks and will outlive you, so no worries about buying them used.
I know for a while during the pandemic when there was a work from home rush, used Aeron's became quite a bit more expensive. Not sure how they are priced now, but unless they are crazy expensive, I highly recommend them over any "gaming" chair on the market.
Hope you're not talking about the one from Costco. Just had to toss mine after about 20 months - seat and back cushions compressed and faux leather flaked and torn.If y'all haven't discovered La-Z-Boy office chairs, you're missing out on a goldmine of comfort and durability.
Hello, fellow gamers. I'm looking for decent gaming chairs with a limited budget of $100 to $200. I usually game for about 4 to 5 hours every day which is causing me back pain. My current chair is not a fancy one. I'm not even able to adjust the height of it. Suggest me a chair that is reliable and comfortable and doesn't break my bank either. Thanks in advance.
