Alright gang, in the market for a new computer chair.

Anyone got any recommendations?

Needs to have a high back because I like to slide my arse forward and slouch like a lazy shit on the regular.

This is the one I've got, had it for 12 months or so, goes good considering the price. Not exactly a gaming chair per se, but those are just overpriced junk for the most part. Comfy as, good for slouching, very sturdy. :p
Trash.

If you don't plan to pay $300+ You don't want to be at OW mate. Trust me, the bosses buy the cheaper shit from there, including about 5 of those ones linked, they are shit.

Also, while they are high back, they don't support good posture, you're still slumped.

If you don't want to pay $500-$1,000 you're not going to get a good gaming chair, anywhere. I'm quite happy with it for the money I spent.

I’ve always found the best quality vs price chairs are ex-Gov stock. Can pick up $500+ stuff for $50-100. Sometimes you can find them at secondhand furniture or office fitout warehouses.

If you’ve got a bad back, you can get them custom made to your body for around $1k, but you’ll never need or want another chair again.

It's more than I would normally spend, but I was able to get some money back by selling the packing they'd used inside it when shipping it. Some moron used milk bottles, what a dumb.

This thread is totally engaging, I've got popcorn reading it as we speak.

It's not that crazy is it? People spend thousands on a bed, etc. If you're a guy who works in an office, high pressure job, whatever, and you're sitting there for 12-16 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, it's a worthwhile investment.

This. You can always tell the people who don't think of computer chairs like this. Majority of people in my age group would spend more time on their chair than in their bed. Why would you want a cheap POS?
