So, I need a new chair.
I've read about the Herman Miller Aeron, not really convinced since people are complaining about pain in thighs. And since I'm from Finland they are not readily available. (only one reseller)
Not really sure what to think about the various gaming chairs either (Maxnomic, DXRacer).. Seems like they're made just to profit off the gaming community.
I need something with a headrest and lumbar support. Budget around $1000.
try this chair, fat boy
Anyone with gaming chairs? Are they durable?
got me a dx racer. its so fucking great.
mom is chief secretary.
has back problems.
tries my chair.
her face when my gaming chair beats all the over 1k€ chairs in her office
linus has a bunch of reviews
GT omega seems the best overall and it's a bit cheaper, their US store just went online
these aren't bad at all and cheap, it has a place to put your ass, your arms and even something to lean your back against
I got it because you get to use your back-muscles more - and since I have had an accident that caused problems with my spine, I tend to look after stuff like this.
> nice blog
captains chairs out of a 2nd gen Dodge Caravan welded to some wheels.
bonus points for the power drivers seat and a PSU mounted under there to power it.
I'm in the same situation here as you OP. Finland too and the prices of that one Herman Miller reseller over here(KT Interior, right?) aren't exactly inviting. 1400e for the graphite stand model. Maybe I'll wait for some used ones to pop up and make do with the Ikea Markus I got now. It's not bad but the comfort in long term is average.
Look at the steelcase range. The "gesture" and the "leap". The leap you should be able to find for quite cheap through craigslist or something.
I have owned the KAB Controller, the herman miller aeron as well as the gesture now. The gesture is currently my favorite chair but chairs are very much up to the individual. You are best trying to find somewhere you can test these things out for an extend period before committing.
The Aeron is not as good as the Embody; if you're going to go Herman Miller, go Embody.
Frankly, the Steelcase Leap is a better chair than either of those, for about the same (or a little less). Not sure about how Steelcase's distribution in Finland is though.
>waaaaah, it's my genetics that make me allergic to walking and not eating sticks of butter!
Holy shit, it's like /fit/ came in and took over for a while.
Thanks for the recommendations, most of that shit is beyond my price range apart from Ikea, but I'll keep at least the brands in mind for the day I need to upgrade.
