Not sure how much the one you found was, but this one is US$127 shipped, which seems reasonable to me.


That's like adding $2 for shipping if you compare to the HM price ($125 without shipping)- https://store.hermanmiller.com/collection-replacement-parts/aeron-posturefit-support/8981127.html

One option to save a bit on the shipping, is to find a seller with free US delivery https://www.vitality-webb.com/HermanMiller/Aeron-Chair-PostureFit-Support.htm

Then use ezbuy's ezship service to forward. https://ezbuy.sg/active/5eb51d6deb220c22d95bb01c/ezship-user-guide.html
Did you manage to source any seat pan? Not sure how much locally selling them for. Warranty with xtra ending soon...

Hello, uni student here. Thinking of getting Used Herman Miller Aeron fully loaded for $650. Buyer claim “made in 2006-2007. used by local foreign bank n well maintained. still in very good conditions in terms of mechanics n outlook”

1.Is it worth it + do you think it can last long?
2. Anything to look out for when dealing?
Aeron should last. Check all the functions. Especially the tilt and piston for height change.

Then check if got smell or how dirty/bugs. Wear shorts and singlet/t shirt. Sit for 10+ mins or as long as possible. Then say u go nearby makan to think. If no itch and everything else works fine, come back and buy. Else avoid. 2nd market not many honest seller.

Yea piston is a must to check. Those very old chairs 2005 and below...most of the hydraulic is very weak already.

Actually u can self change hydraulic piston for cheap. Amazon sells them for the aerons and there are so many tutorials on YouTube on how to change them. It's easy just need proper hardware tools like a wrench etc.

I think most important check the tilt function as that will be complicated to self repair esp it's in the gear box.

Workplace using Aerons, very nice rocking chair. Something which can't be done with my Leaps at home.

Personally considering next chair to have headrest, anyone got comments about the headrests on the Aeron and Humanscale Freedom?

Just curious as to why secretlab chairs are successful? Some of you may have bought them. Comfy?

Where's the best place to get Aeron now besides Xtra? So far from the thread, I see Unwanted Import, Ergosupplies, AudioSG (shopee)

Though all 3 claims to have 12 year warranty, seems that Ergosupplies and AudioSG are pretty new to the market (and also not sure how long they can last).

Any thoughts? TIA
