Used expensive office chair or a high end gaming chair?

Hi all,

 

So I need a new chair for my PC and I have a budget of £300-400

There are 2 routes I see currently.

Either a used good Herman Miller Mirra 2 for around £350, or a brand new gaming chair like noblechairs hero or something similar

 

I am not looking for coolness factor, all I want is comfort, great ergonomics for my health and looks would be just a bonus

 

In your opinion which option should I go for and why?

Definitely skip any gaming chair that is racing style look. Be it Herman Miller or other ergo alternative way better choice. Even used. 

Ryzen 7 3800X | X570 Aorus Elite | G.Skill 16GB 3200MHz C16 | Radeon RX 5700 XT | Samsung 850 PRO 256GB | Mouse: Zowie S1 | OS: Windows 10

I use the Reclining gaming office chairs of Ficmax, the price is not too expensive but the quality is good. Super comfortable and feels like good quality material was used to make it. The massage pillow is a nice bonus and the assembly was pretty easy too. The one thing I wished companies did was make chairs like this for short people as well, but overall it's a great chair

Is the mirra 2 comes with any adjustability to the lumbar support, arm rest, etc?

For the noblechair, yeh it's another flat bucket seat on a wheelbase, it's not gonna be ergonomic for non racing application unless your body shape fits that chair

The latest chair I purchased was an Autonomous Ergo Chair 2. it was $367USD. 

It was recommended on JayzTwoCents by him and Phil. 

I bought it for my wife. Technically I could use it because it goes up to 350LBS (I weigh 340). 

The only issue she has is that her feet can't sit on the floor flat. 

It has great adjustments, Mesh Back and Mesh Head rest. The assembly was straight forward, and it is built with high quality materials. 

 

Just do yourself a favor, measure your legs width (to ensure the seat pan is wide enough for you) and the distance form your bottom to your knee (to ensure the seat is deep enough or small enough). 

I made that mistake with the first office chair I bought, it went to my son.
