I'm currently looking around for a new computer chair and I was hoping perhaps someone on here would have a good idea of what chairs are the best and of any good dealers. Price isn't too much of a concern, as long as its ergonomic and comfortable and saves me a knackered back in my old age it's worth it, but being able to trial the chair for a couple of weeks would be a must. I do like the look of the Herman Miller Aeron but at that price I'd definately need a trial run and I can't find any dealers in the UK other than one in london.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have an aeron at work and its THE best chair to use a computer from you'll ever come across.
Horribly expensive so I'm told, but I've been considering getting one for home despite that.

I have a chair I nicked from a house I was living in a couple of years ago. By the state of it, it's 6 years old if it's a day. It's comfortable, has an uppy-downy bit, a roundy-roundy motion, some original and interesting stains and it cost me bugger all. Yours for a pound. :)

I had a leather chair which cost £100 but ended up replacing it with a bog standard chair after getting spots on the back of my legs during the summer heat.

You became a real spotty geek! Finally embodying we all that we strive to achieve in our lifetimes... Oh why give that up? :m00:

That would be sweat, the prescribed antidote being to have a wash every so often.

Dirty bastard.

Try a second hand office furniture place. I bought some £400 german made office chairs for 30 clams - indestructible and comfy.

Why not just stick a sheet over it, that what I did with my leather chair

I don't know were my chair came from it was a birthday present but its pretty comfortable and has the tilt on it so I can get that "Shit I'm gonna fall off the back of it" when I lean back :)

Yes it would be sweat caused by heat and insulated by a leather chair :p

I stuck a blanket over it but still I found myself getting too hot and found it rather pointless in having a leather chair when doing so ;)

The cheap high-back leather chairs from Viking are excellent. I have two of them at home!

Their Matrix chair is only £34.99 (includes free delivery as its over £30) plus VAT.

Go here for more info Viking Matrix Leather Chair

Hope this helps!

The viking chairs are a pile of shit. Comfy for short periods of time but if you use em longterm they aint no good.

not only is TTD old but it seems he is wise too, thats is the best chair yer can get extremly comfortable in standard form but with all the extras it better the "fucing brilliant" brand its around £700 but can be hand second hand for qround £300

I bought a chair from Argos similar to the one I've got. It tried to kill me.
