Default Computer chair suggestions around $250?

I'm about to pull the trigger. I'm tired of buying $80-100 computer chairs from officemax. This last one barely lasted 4 months. I'm not the lightest person either (about #260).

I'm about to pull the trigger on the Alera RV41LS10C for $259. But I figured I'd check in and see if anyone has any better suggestions?

I don't like leather chairs, they make my back sweaty. I'd go for something with perforations on the back.

I prefer the cushion though as I tend to recline often and watch anime.

I use this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It has good back support and good bolstering, the seat cushion is quite comfortable and it has lasted me 2 years.

Armrests are removable and everything is adjustable, almost to a fault.

If you're willing to go higher than your budget, you can get some great chairs that will last for 10+ years. The Herman Miller ones have 10 years warranty, too.

I ****ing hate amazon. This chair looks amazing but they don't ship to Canada. So I go on the amazon Canada website and it's $210. Fine. Shipping is $430. **** that. Anywhere cheap that sends this to Canada?

Edit: Found a place that will send it taxes/shipping in for $350 Canadian. Sold! My old chair has to go.

Herman Miller Aeron , can be found on Ebay/CL often for around $250-300 used. Have had mine for .. 11 years now. If you get one I highly suggest getting the leather arm pads, eventually the vinyl will crack but the leather are soo much nicer.
