zenkmander is still being judged by the masses


Default Looking for a new computer chair, any recommendations?

Can you guys recommend any good computer chairs for me? I'm looking to spend $150 at most. I tend to sit for long periods of time, so comfort level is obviously ideal.

A used Herman Miller chair.

I think they are usually over a grand, so it might be difficult.

But they are so damn comfy.

But seriously the best way is to visit a couple of the Office stores in your area and sit on some.

I could not agree more with Debello. I just picked up that very same chair a couple of days ago and they feel great. I love the tilt back lock feature .

Looks like an imitation of the critically acclaimed Herman Miller Aeron chair.



Lacking in areas compared to the original design, but I guess it is better than other dirt cheap retail chairs.

For $1500 the Herman Miller Aeron better give me a hand job everytime I sit down.

The basic model is $700.

Still quite a bit, but I really like mine.

Ikea's Allak is pretty good. It's the one I use at home. Well worth the $70.

Not a big fan of that chair. Not very nice to sit on while wearing shorts.

I prefer all leather.
