Skip the Jarvfjallet, the headrest is very uncomfortable, and almost gives you a nerd/geek/forward neck posture. The seat cushion is also very stiff and quite shallow even fully extended.

Thanks! Will definitely check it out when IKEA opens again. The look of the Hattefjall is more towards my liking as it's more minimal looking. At this point i think anything is an upgrade from the plastic office chair :s13:

EDIT: Just saw that they got a new plastic chair, the LOBERGET. Looks more atas than the previous one hahaha

You're very welcome :) When you're trying, do note the seat depth can be adjusted, but what i liked even more is that the back height can also be adjusted. You can lift the whole back up in many notches, and to lower you just lift it up all the way and drop it down. This is important when trying, because you need to have the back arc at the position that fits you, otherwise you won't feel that it is comfortable.

thanks, valuable information here.

I tried the Markus once at IKEA just for a short while and noticed that it was quite uncomfortable. Read online that ergonomic chairs are usually really uncomfortable initially as they will force you to sit in a proper position.

Must be because I using that cheapo $20 IKEA chair for the past 2 years :s13:

Many so called high end chairs are not designed to immediately feel comfortable upon sitting as they are task chairs. They are designed to make users not feel aches or strains during long 8-12 hours of use.

My ErgoTune chair got delivered this evening. Yes, I bought it without testing. Sharing some pics:

Cat not included as part of the chair purchase.

Chair just after self-assembly. I would rate the ease of assembly 5/10. Assembly guide was okay but not comprehensive. A single person assembly is do-able but I recommend getting someone to assist. The seat was pretty heavy, and one person just to screw the seat with the backrest was tiring to be honest. Took about 30 minutes to fully assemble.

After some adjustment. I am still trying to figure the best position, but I think I am getting there in terms of comfort level. I am also quite amazed at the level of adjustability of this chair. Unforunately, I have a feeling that I will not get used to the mesh seat as I wear shorts at home, so my thighs are also resting on the seat. There is a certain discomfort in this area.

Side by side with my old Vhive chair. Lasted more than six years I suppose. Some significant wear and tear has occured at the front since the start of WFH, thus the decision to invest in another chair. The damage/tear at the back was an accidental brush against a dumbbell handle, but did not worsen further. The ROI for the Vhive chair was pretty good actually. It was comfortable.

About 10 years so far, itís still around in another room. The leather started peeling around 7-8 years in. The other chair model with cloth seat wasnít available when I bought Markus.

Still fine, probably a matter of getting used to it, else I can put a seat cushion above to address this.

Yeah, I am well aware, just have to enforce no-go zone around the chair. :s13:

$399 at Laz
$559 at Ergotune site

difference is the length of warranty. You probably pay $160 more for warranty

Saw a difference in the legs. UMD A9 is curved downwards, ergoedge is straight slope downwards. But design of seat really look similar.
