We have 3 chairs. I bought one for 90 bucks at office max about 2 years ago. Its awful painful. Hurts my back and I cannot sit in it for more than 30 minutes without wanting to slump which caused me bad back pain lately. I do NOT slump anymore.

What do you use and is it comfy? I am about mad enough to go to best buy and get a gaming chair for 400 bucks with those cool built in speakers near your head.

Well we dont have anything that fancy at work, but ergo chairs there too. They cost bout 400 Euros and look similar to this. At home I use this.

To be honest, if you like me, sit infront of the pc for about 12 to 14 hrs a day, it dont matter what chair you use :thumbsup: your back always hurts. The ergo chairs do do a good job though. I dont see why you would need some speakers in the chair, but I aint a gamer and am more down to usability than fancy things...

Seeing as I work from home and am at the computer for more than 12 hours on average, I need high quality. This is the best chair I have ever owned, and you would have to pry it from my cold dead fingers. :thumbsup:

Animal -

This may sound odd for a "work chair", but does it recline?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

If you mean leaning backward with recline, than my chair at work can do that too. I find it very important, as it allows to change your sitting position frequently.
I just got the "Bedienungsanleitung" for the chair at work - its called "drabert cambio." Its red and comfy. Glad the company paid the chair tho :thumbsup: .

So back pain from computer sitting is a problem with you all too? Its just hard because I have to do work too. I had bad pain one day until I did not feel like moving for 30 minutes. It wasnt from the computer but wow it hurt. My lower back drives me nuts after a while in this stupid chair. Then my neck hurts....

I have one of those mesh chairs too with about zero cushion on the chair it hurts to sit in hurts my back and gives no neck/head support.

Air seats are great, but I like GARMANMA'S "hole" multi tasking approach, pure genius.

I have never understood the concept of office chairs. Don't they have to be comfy? :D

For my games setup I have a chair a bit like this
http://www.thewavemag.com/pagegen.php?page...articleid=25753

I have arranged the mouse on my right side, so I can rest my arm while using it.
The keyboard in my lap.
I have minimum problems with the back.
Good neck-support is really important.
Different chair work for different backs.
About no tension in any part of the body. That's the key.

At the office it ought to be a human right with a comfy chair.

It works splendid for me and have for many years.

My outlandish cents. :thumbsup:

Scroll down the link. "Comfortable chair".
