    Just bought my first (FINALLY).

    I have 30 days to evaluate if it's worth the $$$.

    Anyone else care to comment?

  2. Well what do you think of your new chair so far?

    I just recently got a very light and comfy Steelcase Think; you should probably look at that model as well as the more deluxe Steelcase Leap before you make a final decision.
  4. The Aeron is a nice chair, but not terribly durable. I am 240lbs and have gone through warranty twice.
  5. I have two Aerons, one at work and one at home. I bought the home one with my own money after I realised that my back and shoulders were hurting after long sessions at the home PC. I didn't get that at work despite spending more hours in front of the PC so I assumed it was the chair. I bought the Aeron for home and my problems went away.

    I suppose the most important point is that I don't notice either of my chairs while using them. I weigh about 200lbs. Both chairs have held up well for past 3 years. However, I did once sit down very enthusiastically on the edge of somebody else's Aeron at work and break one of the supports. They do need a little bit of care.

    How long is the warranty on those chairs?

    Well so far the first day is pretty comfy but a little cold on the back because of the mesh.

    So far so good.

    Riskarb , I'm only 150 so it shouldn't be an issue :)
  8. Joab and others - still like the Aeron? Any other recommendations?
  9. I love it, the non-leather arms suck though, pony up for the leather.

    my old company did something very Stupid with Aerons....They bought a dozen fo rthe executive board room....Which is only used a few times a week at the most. $12,000..ouch.

    I think they are the best chair ever made...but they are expensive.
