Aeron Chair by Herman Miller

They go on sale twice a year I believe, I got mine in June and paid $721.00; it is a great chair, I have wanted one for years.

Maybe it's just me but I tried it out in Macys for 10-15 minutes. Didn't find it comfortable at all.

Geez I have a great chair that looks just like that and works great and is comfortable as hell that I bought at Costco for $99. Does that thing jerk you off 2 times a day or something?

We have these chairs at my job and I fucking hate them. It's like someone made a chair that has everything your body needs, except for the comfort you expect sitting in a chair that costs $850. Now I know they paid this much for them?!?

Re: computer chair

We're about to get chairs that look very similar to the Aeron chair at my office. Not sure if it's the same though since they're outfitting 6 floors worth of space with them - can't see them spending that much even if it is the end of year budget being spent.

Re: computer chair

I've had mine for about 10 years now, use it every day and it looks brand new still. Worth every penny. the support and build quality is incredible. Those cheap Staples/Costco chairs do not compare at all.

This. I'm a big guy and I go through the cheap chairs rather quickly so I spent the money and got a good chair and I can't be happier.

Re: computer chair

This is my chair: http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/50137208/

I was bored in the store one day and was trying out the chairs. I sat in one of those, fell in love, and forced my mum to buy it for me. 4 years later and I'm still madly in love with it. It's the greatest chair in the history of chairs. It's ridiculously comfortable.

Re: computer chair

Anyone have any information on the office chairs they make for overweight people? I hear they can take weight better and it's a more comfortable fit for a longer time.
