I've never once bought a computer chair. People throw them out all the time, usually because one wheel has broken. Just replace and good to go.

Uh, ok?

What about this one? Adjustable headrest and armrest. Reclines 180. Plus an footrest.
>>
>>69326998
>Flat back
>"adjustable headrest" is a pillow
>uses shitty tension adjustment for recline
>probably only locks in upright

I'd rather just pull a seat from a junkyard and a shitty thrift store chair and jury rig it together with some 2x4 pieces and some nuts and bolts.

>gaming chair
No.
Buy an office chair, any around that price is going to be better than a "gaming" chair.
>>
>>69326998
I've used one that looks exactly like that, impossible to tell for sure because all the Chinese gaymer chairs look the same. The footrest is embarrassingly bad, the lumbar support pillow is bad, and the entire thing will probably be broken in 9 months.
>>
>>69327049
But you can't game in an office chair
>>
>>69326287
Spend money and get a real chair, The Ikea Markus is a good starting point and will easily last you 10+ years while cheap Chinese shit will fall apart after a year.
>>
>>69327079
The same model in other colors is still selling for 450 bucks, some with mesh back and some with the same upholstered back, just different color. From my last desk job I remember the HON ignition being alright, but I really just want to know if this chair is a good one.

Why don't you find a warehouse full of barely used Steelcase Leap v2 chairs for $100 bucks each?
>>
>>69327079
Mine barely lasted 8. Also the arm rests are terrible.
>>
>>69327101
Because I live in northeast arkansas. Last thing I'd want to do is drive to Memphis and deal with the hellhole that is that city.

Nothing personnel, kid.
>>
>>69327107
So return it for a free replacement, it comes with a 10 year guarantee.
>>
Can never get truly comfy in these chairs because the pentagonal wheels can't stay still and always knock into something when trying to move. And the seat bases always dig into my hamstrings. Also desks are to shallow to truly strech out my legs
>>
Spending more than 100$ on a chair is retarded unless you're a fatass.
>>
>>69327134
Get a 36 inch deep desk and mount a foot hammock under it.
>>
>>69327173
Better than spending tens of thousands later in life trying to fix your back, or just living with back pain.
>>
>>69327079
I have the Markus going on 7 years now. It's terribly overrated. The seats are very deep, so pretty bad for your lumbar once you start to slouch. Non adjustable arm rest is low and pretty much useless. Only good thing is the vented, mesh back.

How do I search for chairs by seat height on Amazon? I'm fucking tall and my knees are usually way higher than the rest of my legs and it hurts to sit like that.
On Amazon the dimensions are given as one text information and I can't figure out how to search for that alone.

Bruh Amazon brand names might as well be eBay brand names. Nobody cares about the brand name. it's a cloned piece of shit for cheap. Buy it and literally expect nothing more than garbage and you'll be happy.

All a matter of priorities. Some are spending that much on desktops & smartphones. Others on car accessories or weird home decor. Realistically spending a grand on a device designed to cradle your body every day is not a bad idea if you can afford it, just gotta dodge the gaming snake oil.

The DXRacer memes are actually pretty good.

mesh-backed chairs are simply to increase profit margins by lowering manufacturing costs and shipping weight costs. My back is killing me with my no-support mesh shit.

I am sweating all over the leather ones, mesh is god tier.

>>
>>69329949
Based. I got one of these on ebay for £125. If you are a burger it probably costs that just for the doctor to lift your shirt to look at your back, how can people not see the value of investing in yourself.
>>
>>69334261
I like neither leatehr or mesh ones, so I hear you.
Top tier is a thick wool quality. Wool is so breathable and nice.

Are you all fucking morons? Shop your local thrift stores and find a good comfy chair for 10 bucks max. There are always many different sizes and models, unlike Ikea or furniture stores where everything is exactly the fucking same and cost $100+

It's incredibly important to be able to test out a chair in person. Buying a chair online is fucking stupid.
>>
>>69339676
I have one, as well as one at work. I got it through the same company that supplies all our office furniture for $700 at $900, $16 for shipping. Pretty sweet.

I mean reviews indicate that it’s likely to be good quality, but idk about the warranty because other high end mattress brand chairs only have 1-2 year warranties for chairs just lower in price compared to proper office chair options

That and if you haven’t sat in a chair, there’s no guarantee that it’ll work for you, that’s why I’m asking if anyone has experience with the one I ordered.

Could just buy it and return it if you don't like it.

What about this? Mesh, reclines, foot and head rest. Only doesn't have armrest adjustment. Worth it to take a gamble?

What's a good chair for supporting fat-asses that isn't ugly as sin? (Asking for a friend.)

>>69342827
You can probably look at chairs with a weight capacity about 50 pounds above your weight.

You can also get a gf by worrying less about what people on an image board think of your weight.

1k chairs last longer than 15 years people still sell launch edition HM chairs from 1993-1994 for half retail price 500$ and that's like 25 years and they will last even longer than that .

IMO a modern HM will last literally 40years so that's like 25$ a year for a 1k chair
