Recommendation for computer/office chair

Budget: $500
Wants: As many points of adjustment as possible and comfortable for long term use.
I would prefer it not be a gaming chair or a bucket seat styled chair. 

Any recommendations?

Used office supply store.  Should be able to get a thousand dollar full grain leather executive chair for that kind of money.  It will be the wrong color.

They vary by town.  They’re generally local businesses rather than chains.  One of those sorts of businesses that the public rarely frequents like janitorial supply stores and pest eradication supply stores.  It would be a local search thing.

I could recommend you this one. Aggressive design and sports car detailing.

Quite durable though not well known brand yet.

I'm not too fond of these kinds of chairs unfortunately. These gaming/racing chairs are not comfortable for me long term as i'm a bit wide

Used office equipment stores have an operations model that isn’t very brand specific.  What they do is acquire inventory locally at business auctions.  Sometimes for close to nothing.  Their biggest inventory cost is warehouse space. A business goes under or moves or something and the furniture becomes useless so it is sold cheap.  The deal is a lot of that stuff can’t really be take. Apart again after it has been put together so it’s no longer saleable through the mail.  It just becomes wildly expensive to ship.  Because of this a used office equipment store inventory is going to be random and of wildly varying vintage.  It would not be out of character to find something covered in fuchsia wool left over from the 90’s. 
 

it’s useful gaming stuff though because businesses have to follow industrial standards, and it’s quite common for people to spend 8 hours sitting in the chairs.  They tend to be durable and adjustable.

 

It can be a trick for heavy people though.  Furniture companies are not messing about with weight limits.  If you weigh over 100kg you need to be careful.  Over 140kg pretty much guarantees you will need special stuff.
