Guys, please just spend 1 time good one on a proper chair like Herman Miller.

It’s only 1-2k, which is the same price of your gaming rig, but it will last you for years to come and make sure you have healthy back

No regret buying one

so u gotten which one?
1st.
ikea Markus (returned - out of goodwill)

2nd.
ikea hattefjall (regretted)

I have issues with my tailbone. which kinda hurts.
initially I sat at Ikea for half an hour and I thought it will be a good fit for me.

end up. brought home.
I realised I wear different clothing at home.

which... all the problems came back.

maybe the cheapo chairs could be a better fit.. I dunno.
I looked for multiple solutions before, swimming floats. pillow, towel. etc.

now I am looking at sit-stand chair
or even exercise ball

but the initial thoughts for the mesh chair was for ventilation.

if not the best solution (cheapest some more)
- don't sit for too long...

i was looking at that as well
I don't wear shirt at home
the back mesh
1. caused some pain, (partially due to my body frame)
2. after long seating my tailbone started hurting
3. difficult to rest on the back rest (it has this weird back arch which is not very suitable for me)

remember that different body. different needs.
what works for one may not be for another.

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
I don't care for looks, and agree with you that RGB is disgusting stuff meant for poseurs.

But back to the question: any comments on the Flintan?

Do you know where can I buy the cheapest brand new aeron chair in Singapore?

Anyone buy from this carousel seller? Do you think he can be trusted? How do you check if the warranty is valid after purchase?

I bought this to replaced the wheel casters. Very worth it. Used for 4 years already and still ok. Last time I bought from Apres Marketing before taobao came into my life was chop carrot chop robert price ($14.5 before GST, each wheel ).
