Our house is growing. I went from 1 desk and 1 pc to 3 desks and 3 PC now. Wife has her desk, the child has his own PC, I have my player and the 4th is a replacement. I have bought chairs worth $ 75- $ 150 almost every 1-2 years for the last 5 years and I really need to find one that grabs me. It makes me think I'm not enough for my butt, so now I go astray on a chair budget and open my wallet a bit. If I can find one that meets all my needs, I will be willing to purchase around $ 300.

It cannot be a cloth seat. You must play up to 20 hours a week, forever or as close as possible forever. To play much more, I have these damn kids ...Has to support a pudgy manlet.what I have been looking into from Bzfuture.What is your experience with the chairs you play with?

I thought it was gimmicky at first but then I sat in one and wow was I impressed. I purchased a "gaming" chair from Secretlabs last year as a present to myself. It's a bit of a premium but it is the best $320 investment ever and my back thanks me for it. I sit/stand 10+ hours a day for work/pleasure and this chair is mega comfy. I've even fell asleep in it several times. The one i got was the omega cloth series so you might want to go with the titan PLU series if you're a bit larger. Highly recommend. Toms Hardware did a write up a couple of days ago on these chairs as well. Worth a look.

I would LOVE to get one of the new Logitech / Herman Miller chairs but it seems as though they have the same availability as the 30 series cards

Ordered me one after looking and reading some posts here and there. Ordered the Secretlabs Titan 2020 Stealth. Estimated ship date of 10/21.
Maybe, just maybe my PC will be here by then!

Ergonomic Office Gaming Chairs of BestOffice. I was looking for a comfortable office chair that could handle long sessions at the keyboard, but didn't cost an arm and a leg. This chair checked all those boxes. I work from home, so I didn't need a "professional" chair, so I don't mind the gaming/racing design.
Overall, it's extremely comfortable. The pillows that are included make it adjustable for lumbar and neck support. I also really like the footrest! Overall, the darn thing is so comfortable, I could nap in it if I chose it.

Nice you found a chair to your liking.

Got my Titan from SecretLabs.
Pricey=yes
Well built=yes
Pleasing to the eye=yes
Adjustable=yes, like adjustable in so many ways.

After buying numerous office chairs at various prices, I decided to spend more on a good gaming chair. I am not disappointed in my pick. As well as this thing is built, I won't have to buy another chair for a long, long time. Thus making the price very reasonable to me.

I need a recommendation for a good chair to sit in for hours at a time, preferably with good support so my legs don't fall asleep or my back decides to play the fatigue game after 2 hours of fallout 4.

Currently, I'm looking at the Tempurpedic line from Staples because memory foam is super comfy, and ergonomic is great for the back. But I'm not too keen on the external material (pleather, mesh) as that has a tendency to wear down and flake in 2 years.

If money was no object I'd blow the 20K on an MWE lab Emperor and call it a day, but no one made a 51" 5120X2180 monitor and that thing would be subject to multiple upgrades as it is a crazy full desk replacement how to fix gamer posture.

The racing gaming chairs are ok (I guess) but I don't feel an appeal to them as I don't really play racing games.

So yeah I'm looking for a great chair that can fit under a desk, preferably with a zero-gravity recline feature as I now have an AVEGANT GLYPH for watching movies.

I got tired of cheaper desk chairs and that the cylinders gave out in a year or less. I did some research and while the 'gaming' chairs looked cool and had lots of features a lot of them weren't rated that heavy. I'm average height but broad and around 280 lb.(was 330 lb. when I bought the chair) so I started looking for big and tall chairs. Alot of articles I read recommended Fast Furniture's Hercule big and tall chairs. Theres a few different styles. I ordered mine from Amazon around 3 years ago and its still sturdy and cylinder holding up great. I did come with one armrest not welded right but they had me a new one in no time at all. Leather and metal frame easy to clean and mostly retained its shape. Im quite happy with it. Ill post a link to the style i have

As of this Monday, I and most of my co-workers will remain at home and work from there for the foreseeable future.

From the corporate point of view, this is not that much a problem (at least for me). Sure, I will miss the direct exchange with my co-workers, but as a project/bid manager I can do pretty much all of my work remotely, and out company has long operated under the assumption that most people will have to do so from time to time. I have both a work notebook and a VPN connection.

The actual problem is... that my apartment isn't quite set up for working from home yet, and so far I've been worked from the couch - which is hardly ideal. My sole desk is fully occupied with my desktop PC. this is about to change - I have ordered a new desk with more space which should arrive later this week, a second screen, as well as some other gear that should help with my setup. While the expenses will hurt a bit, they ought to be tax-deductible and it's not as if I will be going on my planned bicycle trip this May anyway....:-\

What I haven't ordered yet is a new chair. My current chair, which like most of my other stuff was bought at a time when I had to be far more frugal, is serviceable as a swivel chair - but ergonomic, it is not. And now that I will likely spend three times as much time on the same chair in the coming months, this will not do - I need a replacement.

Someone on Facebook recommended a gaming chair such as a DXRacer. I am open to this line of thought. However, some of these chairs include a "USB massage module" as an upgrade. Is this actually a useful feature, or a pointless toy?

What are your thoughts? Do you have any recommendations for my situation?

See my post above about my chair from Secret Labs. High quality and several chairs to choose from. In my experience, a plushy chair is NOT comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. My chair from Secret Labs feels firm, as do my seats in my new Ram Laramie. But you can sit in them for hours on end and not feel the bum burn.
