I am looking for a good quality computer chair for about $100.
Anyone have any suggestions?
You're not going to get much quality for $100. Just go to Office Depot and find something comfortable.
I currently have this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1082463&CatId=1541
chair. It took a bit to get use to but now I like it.
For $100 I'd suggest you check out a used office furniture store in your area. There are a few by me and I got some great deals on furniture. They usually carry office furniture from companies that went under and/or demo furniture and/or last year's model.
I got a great Global Scale chair that's normally 400, for $150 new at one of these places. It was last years model and the only difference was the color of the fabric.
Avoid stores from staples, office depot, office max, best buy, ikea, etc their chairs are cheap and suck.
Costco has great executive chairs if you have a membership and if they have it in stock.
I have this chair. Although it helped that I got it for free instead of the usual $800 price.
In all honesty though, a chair is not something you want to go cheap on. Especialy if you spend 8+ hours a day in it. A good chair will have lumbar support and proper high back support that could prevent countless medical problems in the future.
It looks like a chair out of some science fiction novel.
Mine looks like a cheaper version of that ...but hey it was only 70$
I love my HM (at work, can't afford something quite that expensive for the home office).
we have those here in a few offices. they are damn comfortable.
i love those chairs... almost picked up one last year, but had a hard time justifying the price. They are VERY sweet though.
Unless one WORKS from home 9x5, then a HM chair is justifiable. One can write it off and stuff. But for a casual gamer, email, web browsing one or two hours a day a HM chair is overkill for the medium income man.
But there are used HM chairs of course, but are very hard to come by and are rarely much cheaper.
nice chair....mine just got a lot less cool
$200 and an hour and Office Depot got me a very nice chair. Just go to the store, and set in EVERY chair you can afford (or is at least within what you want to spend)... Then pick the one that is most comfortable to you.
I love my Aeron. They're super comfortable if adjusted properly to fit you.
yea, i spend a good 20-30hrs at home coding, playing, etc during the week. Most of my time at a computer is at work, but i do spend a good amount of time at home. You're right about writing it off too. And $800 is a good deduction
Oh, then you should certainly invest in one. Aeron's don't cost that much, we got our fully loaded posturefit for ~600, but we ordered a few hundred, plus a few thousand HM cubicle setups... You can get the basic Aeron, which is just as good for about $650 online before shipping/tax.
best buy huh?
