I just don;t trust companies anymore to bring quality out at a reasonable price, Everything has to be profit on top of profit.

TBH I can not see Herman Miller putting their world leading reputation on the line for a gaming chair.

Look at their chairs. They involve tons of very heavy quality parts. There's no way they will jeapordise their own reputation selling out for gayming.

This chair they're doing may well be a Sayl or something "cheap" (around £400) with a Logitech sign on.

That said Logitech are not tacky low class outfits either dude. Their RMA reputation is amazing and they have always made decent products.

I went to the Herman Miller site here in Aus and the first thing I was greeted with was their new Logitech Chair so I suspect it might be a half decent chair, for me to actually buy as HM though I'd need to travel 150km so I'm looking at an Office Works chair that has a 15 year warranty by a company called J.Burrows

As much as I find it annoying to see the constant spam of this herman miller brand. They seem to respect themselves way too much to resort to going cheap.

So there are two options I see here.

1. They provide their own chairs as a rebrand for Logitech

2. They design a new chair based on requirements set by Logitech. Which will be most likley a pricey product regardless.

I agree with everything except that. They are quite cheap these days. products are not what they used to be. But we are all judging based on the term "gaming"... A little bit too stereotypical i guess. Let us see what they bring out before throwing our "gonna be poor" mentality.

There are many excellent options out there but you need to follow one rule when buying a chair Do not buy a chair unless you have put your but in it. Buying a chair online without trying it first is a horrible mistake.

My dad is an engineer and when my chair broke I took a piece to him and showed it to see if he could see why it failed, First thing he said "It's the same cheap sub standard Chinese steel we used to use on mock ups, It's a wonder this didn't break sooner".

He used to work at BMW mocking up various parts using this type of metal, As it is dirt cheap and more cost effective than using aluminium for mockups, But this metal never went into finished products, It was always used for non moving test pieces, Not too informed on that matter though.
