Desktop Chair Roundup - Ergonomic Chair

Currently, I am looking for a really good and solid ergonomic chair, and basically spoilt by the choices we have in the market. Ideally I am trying to keep the budget below 2000ish, but am still open to choices. The choices I have in mind are as appended below:

[1] Herman Miller - Aeron - tested at xtra feels good but expensive at 1700 with full configurations
http://www.hermanmiller.com/products...on-chairs.html


[2] Haworth Zody - dropped

[3] Okamura Contessa - need inputs to find and test
http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products...ssa/index.html
[img]http://www.okamura.jp/en_eu/products/seating/contessa/img/contessa_detail03.jpg[.img]

[4] Okamura Baron - dropped

[5] Ergohuman V2 - definitely feels better than Aeron at 600 bucks
http://ergohuman.com/ergohuman-v2-ch...rame-and-mesh/


Lai Lai, need help and recommendations to save my backside from the pain. All inputs are welcomed.

I find that this chair very low. If only the maximum height is higher, then it would be more comfortable. The left arm rest gets loose very easily. Have already replaced the handle once. But now it's loose again. Think need to replace again..

Might be looking for new chair.

[3] Okamura Contessa - need inputs to find and test
[4] Okamura Baron - need inputs to find and test
[5] Ergohuman V2 - definitely feels better than Aeron at 600 bucks
