Mhmm it looks too similar to the v1.
Does ur chair Manual indicates otherwise?

I've tried the Ergo and HM Aeon.


End up I bought the MARKUS Swivel chair from IKEA for $399.

Price has dropped to $299.

Got 2 sets.

Lumbar support and good for big size people.


Cheap and good.

You can't tell how good or bad the Herman Miller Aeron is just by sitting on it. Please let me explain.

The Aeron is an ergonomic chair. It is designed to keep your spine straight. To do that, you first start with the right frame. The frame comes in three sizes (at the time I bought it), depending on your height. You then adjust the various levers for height, tilt etc until the chair is customized to your liking. To sit on the Aeron, you have to move your butt all the way back until the lumbar support is nestled against the small of your back. (This is why the frame size is important. Too big and your knees will not hang over the edge nicely.) This way, you will be sitting in the correct posture with a straight spine.

By lumbar support, I mean this.

The Aeron has two types of lumbar support - the horizontal type which is useless (in my opinion) and the butterfly-shaped one in the above pic.

While I can't comment on the other chairs in the OP, I have used the Aeron for years and have two of these at home.

Agreed. I'm also using the Posture Fit attachment shown in your photo. It definitely feels better and provides more support with the tension adjustment than the lumbar attachment.

I bought a similar chair to the IKEA MARKUS, but from vhive

after 1 year+, the back mesh will start to sag since there is no physical support.

just FYI, and hope your chair can last longer than mine

If you had compare their "V2" to the original V2 as introduced on the website, you will noticed a few differences.



1) Handle bar is different (same old V1 plastic handle)
2) Black plastic cover under seat (same plastic cover instead of revealed metal parts)
3) The seat adjustments (Using 3 in 1 trigger instead of 3 individual controls)
4) The tension control is turning knob instead of crank turning

Basically I would that the model feels like V1 plus instead of V2. I think I also read somewhere that says that the real V2 version is not release in SEA.

Anyway, I tested the chair and feel that lumbar support was there, the mesh seat is quite comfortable. The chair was much much cooler than my previous leather chair.

Overall, I like the chair but It does makes some noise if you keep shifting it around. :s13:

P.S. This is the most expensive chair I've owned so far, as I've not tried others (like Herman Miller or similar expensive brand), I was not able to compare the effectiveness of the ergonomic feature of such chair. Except that it is way better than the previous $300+ I used to have. :o


You can try it out at the showroom, Apres No.9 Harrison Road #06-01 Singapore 369651. Tel: 67410009

Yeah, that's been my impression of those who copy the mesh style at a lower price-point. Sure can't last... The Markus does have some support though, dunno if that'll help the durability.

I tried the hm aeron for a good 30 mins surfing and sitting on the chair. The lumbar support to me is close to non-existing. Should I be changing to posture fit it will be additional cost. While the chair is indeed good, I find ergo human more comfortable and adjustable. In the end buying the ergohuman from apres lol.

When I am free I will probably head down to china square and test out the japanese okamura contessa

Too expensive :(

Any 500 range office mesh chair tat can handle bui bui like me weight range from 90 to 100kg?

bemylove 26-08-2015 01:42 AM

Dont get Aeron, it is an old design with poor lumpar support! :D
Want HM, look at Embody, much more comfortable.
Or cheaper the Sayl, much better back support, but it is cushion seat, a thick one at least, But it may get hot without aircon and sweaty dirty if not maintained. UOB use Sayl. HM can pay installment free using CC. :D

Dont get Ikea Markus, the leather will spoil by 2 years in our climate. And it has a high tall back.

Tiagong the Harwoth Zody is quite value for money here. But OP didnt like it.. :(
