Spec me a quality chair please
 
So I went to sit down on my Corsair T2 today which cost 300, The whole base came away, I fell backwards and hit my head on the wall and also something cracked in my neck which is now causing me some really bad pain so I have to go to hospital.

The chair has a weight limit of 135KG and I weigh 95KG so I'm a fair bit off the weight limit.

Upon further inspection of the chair it seems the metal is the cheapest lowest grade available, Also known as Chinesium or pig metal, Very brittle and very cheap.

So once I get back from my hospital appointment and X-ray to make sure no bones are broken around my neck I'll be shopping for a chair, So I need recommendations, No gamer crap please.

My two recommendations are the Herman Miller Aeron and Humanscale Freedom, both probs about 900 but you can pick they up second hand, in mint-condition for about 300.

Herman Miller.

Stop buying this race chair crap.

2ndhnd.com have pretty much the whole range.

Wow that is absolutely crazy, what a piece of cheap crap that is.


Hope everything is alright with your neck there, could have been a lot worse but still!

Sorry to hear about your neck bud.

I use a Secret Labs Titan chair, fabric and the cookie one can't remember the color name. Basically grey/black. Love it. It's hard and stiff but you get used to it. You don't want plushy anyway. Doesn't keep you straight and prevents better circulation. Heavy duty for sure. I've stood on it and moved around not being easy on it on purpose to test it's durability. Was totally fine.

If you get leather or fabric they also sell a cleaner to go along with it as an accessory. Which is nice and useful. I haven't ever used one because I keep my expensive chair well clear of anything remotely dirty.

Everyone here always says Herman Miller. But I'm pretty sure they are UK based so I can't comment on that. I don't have access to it.

Herman Miller is American.

Thanks Corsair, Stop using Chinesium you cheap ba****ds.

Looking at the break, I wonder if its not a case of cheap metal (although probably true) but maybe some present fracture already in it? Something like this would be grounds for a serious complaint. That could have caused major damage.

I'm still loving my noble chair Epic. Its twice the price, but I have tested secret lab, and the contour was quite nice for my back.
