Hello,

 

I am in the market for a new office/gaming chair after the jysk billum I bought not even a week ago is destroying my lower back since it feels that there is absolutely no support for my back.

 

after lots of searching online,(unfortunately its not very easy for me to go to a store right now and try out different chairs) I found this one chair that seems very very nice at an affordable price.

 

https://allegro.pl/oferta/fotel-gamingowy-obrotowy-biurowy-kubelkowy-gracza-9022081142

 

and in german amazon

 

https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Executive-Players-Adjustment-Computer-Headrest/dp/B086N3N59Z?th=1

 

I am around 1.87m tall and weigh about 110kg and by having a look at the chair specifications,the chair looks fine.

 

anyone has any opinion on this chair or any other recommendation around this price point? (70 euro in allegro.pl and 110 in amazon.de , I will be ordering from the polish site so the price point is around 70 euro)

 

thanks

I have always gotten used office chairs that are still in good condition from thrift stores or used furniture places. IDK how doable that is where you live right now because of COVID-19 and it sounds like you have specific needs so new may be your best bet. Furniture in general really needs to be try before you buy or have a good return policy in case you dislike it.

well,the jysk chair was bought used, I tried it,I liked it,the seat is super comfortable but after sitting for 30 mins -1 hour at the pc, I could feel that I was basically holding up my whole body and not the chair itself.

 

adding a pillow around my lower back (lumbar region) improved the situation by quite a lot but still there are problems.

thats why I decided to focus on "gaming" chairs (even though I dislike "GAAAAAMING" gear) just because of the extra and adjustable pillows on the back.

Honestly, I don't think that you will find a decent, comfortable and good quality chair at that price point. 

 

I can also pretty much guarantee that the chair that you are looking at for 70 / 110 Euro is tribble quality and will begin to squeak in less than 6 months. I have gone through several of chairs of this type in the past and every time it has been the same. Quality is bad and so is comfort. 

 

Your best bet would be to get a used but good condition IKEA office chair. The Markus chair in particular is very good and comfortable. Quality is decent for the price point. I have had one for about 5 years and has held up nicely. My wife uses it now and is very happy with it. 

 

If you want a "gaming" chair, I strongly suggest getting a decent one from a reputable manufacturer. The PlaySeat L33 is very good such chair, but comes at a price.

I am actually looking at the ikea markus after popping up in various searches but the mesh back reminds me of the jysk billum which I am now trying to avoid as much as possible,even though there is a small plastic bit around the area where I have my back problem so it could PROBABLY work well but it would also come with the same problems.

plus it's quite a bit more expensive.

 

the playseat L33 is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of my price range.

 

even paying 70 euros is already leaving a bad taste in my mouth

I agree with the used chair advice. If you have any office liquidation places nearby, that may be the best bet to get a high quality chair for an affordable price. I was able to get a used Steelcase Leap for around 150USD (keep in mind that this is around a 1000USD chair) about a year ago, and it holds up extremely well. I think getting a very high quality chair used is better than getting a cheap one to begin with.

How about Ikea Javlet? It also has a mesh but from trying it out not too long ago, it's incredibly comfortable (but full of compromises) and your body sound similar to mine (I am 95 kg, 180 cm) so it should be as compatible to you as well

 

I used to be interested in Cooler Master stuff (because it doesn't look as gamery) but after trying some of them out, they don't feel as comfortable as Ikea offering (but also a lot more completed package.) On the gaming side there's one chair that I feel immediately comfortable after try sitting on it though, that is Thermaltake X Comfort - although it a bit pricy and not as subtle asthetic-wise as the Cooler Master I innitially took a look.

yes Jarvfjallet, it is indeed even more expensive and flawed than Markus - but the kind of comfort it offers still make me feel hesitant to cross it off the list
