instead of doing the smart thing i mentioned above (even if the 200 price points ended up being false), I decided to get roped into a massdrop for a $100 gaming chair that I am wholly unimpressed with. Gaming chairs are a loving scam I would have genuinely had a better experience buying an office depot chair tbh.

they dont get any good until you pay at least $500 which still isnt any sort of guarantee. At that price you should have bought something else

$100 isnt that bad for a cheapo gaming chair. I know a few guys who are on their 4th or 5th gaming chairs, they keep changing brands because they are sure the next one will be good despite them all coming out of the same 3 factories. Its always a bent base, broken arms or worn out seat front that happens. They last about 18 months on average before the fake leather starts to get bad

The best "gaming chair" I have ever had was when I ripped an actual racing bucket seat from a car and mounted it on casters. Actual car seat levels of durability but no leaning back without falling over. As it was a real performance part it ended up being sold and put into a car or I would definitely still be using it.

My truck's seat is the most comfortable chair. I want to go to a junkyard and pull one, then build a base for it. But,

Does anyone have experience with the Haworth Zody? I have the chance to pick one up for 120usd and wanted to check if there was anything to know before throwing down for it

edit: Bought it and enjoying it, especially for the price. Wouldnt know it was used if I hadnt been told

Anybody have these? An office at work got a whole bunch and they seem fit for purpose and nice, but I don't work in that office so I don't sit on them all day. I like the mesh back since my current chair's "leather" is flaking off and making a huge mess. The price is also not too crazy. I can't remember if the arms drop flat, but that would be nice since I play guitar and would like to have optional armrests.

No, Mr. Rice, I expect you to PLEASE WORK OUT


Got my embody today and I am already in love. I think I may wheel it over to the TV to sit and watch TV in over my way to soft and needs to be replaced couch. Thanks again to whomever pointed out the small business discount you can get on these. Finally pushed me to pull the trigger.

My friend has a Noble Chair. They can be bought in Europe at least, for example here for a reasonable price compared to some other prices I saw in this thread. The chair he has (I forget the exact type) is very comfortable and looks really sturdy. The noblechairs manufacturers website lists all types.

Is a gaming chair just an office chair but with a neck rest?

I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this. Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?

No, a gaming chair is a pile of PU synthetic leather and ‘XXXTreme!!’ styling that will make you sweat like a sauté pan and will start to come apart within weeks.

Dunno about how good the ergonomics are but the seven year warranty is better than I expected unless there's some fine print involved.

After swapping to a Steelcase Gesture from a generic dxracer gaming chair, it's night and day. Those standard gaming chairs are absolutely massive, having a lot more bulk and material but it doesn't do anything with it. As DoctorTristan says, it's just a false leather cover over cheap-ish padding. It won't be completely uncomfortable but it won't stand up to long-term use.

I do miss some of the bulk and mass of the old chair but the Gesture gives me way more support. Sure, I can't recline nearly all the way back like with a gaming chair but I'd gladly trade that for a chair that's consistently comfortable to sit in normally.

At that price, I doubt many bother with the warranty unless something hilarious (like it literally collapses) happens.

I went to a local office furniture refurbisher/warehouse type thing today. I tried out a bunch of chairs, and ended up taking home a used, but pretty good shape Steelcase Leap V2.

My only issue was that it was a little short for me, but I felt that way about most chairs. My past solution was to pick up a short stool gas lift and swap it in, using the bottom of the 14-22" range, vs the top of the ~9"-16" range of a standard chair cylinder.

I took the lift off my old chair and tried it on the Leap, it fit alright but then I noticed I couldn't adjust the height at all. Looking closer, the Leap V2 seems to use a different type of trigger on its cylinder I haven't seen before, it presses in from the side instead of pressing down.

I'd be willing to just buy another lift (the one I have is kinda old now anyway), but not many places even have this specific Leap V2 style to begin with, let alone in bigger sizes. Has anyone dealt with these before or have any ideas?
