Well I get what you mean, but none of these companies making computer parts make the chairs. They buy them from a Chair manufacturer and slap their name on it.

I have a secret Labs chair. I love it. Different from the gaming brands. I only wish it had softer arm rests but not a big deal I don't use them often.

A bit like overclockers did with...

... Noblechair, it's owned by the same company as overclockers, probably a subsidiary or something, bugs me how they push it as a seperate brand on their site a lot, but it's their own product.. bit anti-competitive if you ask me.

If you're gonna pay that for a gaming chair you'd be much better of paying for a second hand Herman Miller or similar task chair.

Much more comfortable, better ergonomics and better build quality imo.

I loved my one of those. It was bloody great. Sadly I broke the arm mech on day two and it got worn hard. Like I was working and then sitting in it and stuff and it got all grubby and dirty. Plus it was sky blue, which didn't fit my new flat at all.

I nearly bought another, but the Herman Miller had been on my radar for ages. I don't regret it. Every time someone sits on that embody they go "ahhhh!".

I have an Aeron not an Embody but I completely agree with AlienALX here.

Don't necessarily have to splash out on a Herman Miller but for goodness sake buy a well made ergonomic chair over a "gaming" chair. Your body will thank you!
