Thanks. It’s probably just me haha

if you are getting pain in butt (literal), it may not be the chair but your posture and maybe sitting for long periods. especially if you feel 'lightning' in your legs when you get up or get up from bed or enter a prone position. u may want to consult a medical professional.

Those China made chairs that promote as ergonomic may angulate your back to the wrong angles and permanently damage the discs in your spine instead. When I was at the worst stage of my slipped disc, i went around and test a lot. My back was an ergonomic detector.

Really ergo chairs are highly adjustable and the better ones should be able to do forward tilt. They are designed to also promote a lot of movement and blood circulation. It's not just having mesh alone = Ergonomic.
That's why those replicas only copy the design but never copy the real function and advantages of the best known ergonomic chairs.

Get those that can promise you at least 10 years warranty on the mechanism and gas cylinder, that should already cover back most of the ROI. Some local stupid joker company offer 10 years warranty on the solid metal frame only, don't be tricked.

Those lousy chairs won't promise you much warranty because they are poorly stress tested or using material that can't last.

One has only one spine, and anybody who had a slipped disc will know it's irreversible. Spine starts to degrade alot when you hit the 30s. Once you have a problem, your medical checkup, mri, etc, already easily cost $500+. In the end, the drs can only tell you that there's nothing much they can do.

If you don't want to spend much on the chair, then the best is you correct your own posture first.

best if you physically try it out. (at least sit for a good while, not 2-5mins.)
different body different needs.

initially almost gotten the full mesh one.
Since i worry about sweating.
End up reading too much about "china" exploding gas pump. which... made me very worried.

Plus the meshed chairs (bottom/back) are abit on the stiffer side. (take note)

LOL , think 9 out of 10 won't give this chair a second look.

Most users need to look good to feel good, in hokkien we call it " ai siew mai mia " = "want looks don't want life "

Same like all the gamer's PC = Just give me i5 + gtx1060 but please allocate more budget to RGB
