    I am not a fan of single post arm rests. They seem to get loose and wobbly very soon after you start using them. The arm rests should bolt on to the chair AND back rest locations for maximum stability.


    Search this chair on Amazon, it is under $100 and would probably last you as long as this $700 chair

    I use Herman Miller mesh chairs and I can tell you they are overrated. I will likely not buy another chair with a mesh seat. They are stiff and you may need to add your own cushion which screws up the chair's ergonomics.

    The best office chair is the Steelcase Leap. They should make gaming chairs that are based on this design. Just add a soft headrest and not a hard mesh headrest.

    Mesh chairs are overrated. Don't get stuck using one 8+ hours a day - I have warned you.

    I was kind of worried about that after looking at this chair.  I don't see it being exceptionally comfortable for long hours, it seems like it will either be too rigid or the mesh might get uncomfortable if I rub myself on it when I'm unclothed.  It would be like a cheese grater.

    mind: why?
    me: you read all the review and saw all the feedback its actually good to have
    mind: but why tho i mean we can easily buy something similar but cheaper or we can sit in the computer for just 1 h and relax for 20 min & repeat...
    me: oh well i good point

    Looks awesome, but why does it look like it just came out of a 3D printer? Might take some getting used to.

    700.00 chair, 1300.00 chair...still using the same 25.00 hydraulic lift chambers. If you're 180lbs or under, you;re good to go. If you're a big person, or a giant, they have a 12-18 month shelf life. THEN you're getting BS from the manufacturer, to send your chair back, rather than giving you a part sku or spec number, to replace. I'm 6'5 230lbs...I burn through a chair every 2 years. I've stopped buying high end chairs. I go to staples and grab me a 200-250.00 chair, with the square trade warranty, so I have 3 years of chair for my initial costs.

    Mass production of these chambers is CHEAPER than going back to the RELIABLE Archimedes screw up/down builds. I've been looking for a 1915-1925, Cast iron swivel, with up/down screw, priced in the 500 or less range, but they are a rare thing to begin with. Specific styles have padded leather seats, backs and arms. Reupholstery work to make one of those more ergonomic, and the chair cost, put these around 1800-2500.

    So..people opt for the cool "throw away" chairs and companies encourage that

    I have sat HM chairs for long periods of time at work and yes you sacrifice comfort for support and ergonomics, but the truth is I would much rather have the choice to stand and sit at the same desk. Honestly 8+ hour chairs are rarely conformable for those 8 hours no mater the chair. I think it's best to mix your day up with sitting and standing to work which is why I'm looking for a hight adjustable desk for the home.

    Maybe MMORPG.com could do some more reviews on desks like those above.

    Definitely on our radar! I have a standing desk riser in right now from Flexispot. Should have that up within a couple of weeks. From there, I'd definitely like to take a look at some of these desks.

    The chair I use is around the $300 range. It is comfortable enough for extended game sessions. But no matter what chair after 4 or 5 hours I am tired of sitting in it lol.
