Suggestions for gaming/office chair

Quick note (for moderators): If this isn't the right part of the forum to ask this question on, please don't ban me, please tell me where to ask this question, as this seemed to be the most appropriate spot to me to post this.

 

Hi there,

 

I've been looking for a new chair for my desk (which would be for at home).

 

I currently have a $200 (CAD) Staples office chair, and would like something better.

 

I'm looking for something around $300-400 (CAD). I'd prefer an ergo chair or something like that but I'm totally fine with a gaming chair (ideally I'd get something from Mavix or the Herman Miller Embody chair, but those are too expensive). I want something comfortable, reliable, and good quality, and would like suggestions. Preferably it would be something from within Canada, or relatively cheap shipping to Canada.

 

I'm in no rush for getting one, I'd just like to have one by mid-late July.

I'd go to a local office liquidator and try out chairs. There is no one size fits all chair when it comes to comfort.

 

If you want somewhere to start, you'll probably want to try used Herman Miller Aeron or Steelcase Leap chairs. I personally purchased a used Steelcase Leap V2 for $250 from a liquidator, which outshines my old DX Racer in every possible way.

Don't bother buying a "gaming chair" it's a literal scam. They cost like 5 times the price of an office chair, and are less comfortable.

I'm not saying I want a gaming chair. I'd want a chair and I would use it for gaming and doing other stuff on my computer. I'm saying I'd be fine if it is a gaming chair or looks like one.
