    I am planning to buy a new chair as the chair I got now starts to wear out and became uncomfortable.

    So in order for me to help decide what I want to get, I want to find out first what gaming chair you got and would you recommend the GT Omega Pro Office chair which will cost me 180 (I don't mind spending that).

    I don't want to end up buying the wrong one so I need to be 100% sure before I go ahead with it.

    The MFOLF from Ikea had a funny smell to it, wouldn't recommend.

    Surely the Ikea Strandmon is the official EG gaming chair.

    Sorry about the thread necromancy but has anyone used a Herman Miller Aeron?

    Can pick one up for about the same price as a good "gaming" chair and am quite tempted as I have not read a bad review.

    And yes, I have tried all sorts of chairs, from the cheapest tat to 2nd hand office stuff and even the legendary Markus. They all last about a year before getting uncomfortable so I thought I would spend a bit more this time to get something better built.

    Aeron chairs are great but look like office furniture. Try the Vitra Eames high-back soft pad chair. It tilts back too, which is fantastically comfortable.

    Don't buy a gaming chair. Just get a chair.

    Don't forget to sellotape a picture of Sonic The Hedgehog to the back of it though.
