Thanks OP, does anyone know if they stock these in store?

Moving away from my Hyken chair, it definitely was not the “bang for buck” chair I thought it was originally...

It is worth the investment even if its used. One of the best investments I ever made and they last!
I was never a fan of mesh seating

My work has heavily invested in HM chairs and I hate sitting in it for prolonged periods, especially when u have the urge to sit on a folded leg. Good luck.

This Tempur hits another demographic.

Review (along with photos of the different colour choices): https://chairinstitute.com/tempur-pedic ... ir-review/

I've seen used Leap v2 for $350 (about the same price as this chair, new, after tax) on Facebook Marketplace. A buddy of mine bought one and said it was in excellent condition, built in 2014. Aerons go for about the same. Chairs from the top ergonomic manufacturers are bomb-proof, they look like-new even after almost a decade of 8hrs, 5days/wk use and they don't feel cheap unlike almost all of the Staples chairs.. of course you're paying 5-10x the price for new though. Can't speak to the Tempur-pedic, never seen it in person.

I've also been digging up some reviews on amazon and there are a mass of people that wished the padding was thicker because they would bottom out easily. Not looking forward to that.

I'm personally in the market for a cushioned chair, don't care if it's pleather, that is high back and cushiony enough to melt in it, say for "PC home theater" use as if you were sitting in a leather sofa. The one I have is a Lane high back chair purchased from costco about 12 years ago and it's on its last limb here. The plastic washers have dried up and broken down to dust from wear, the arms have little yellow foam left since its been worn off. Like i'm in a dire need of a new chair. I used to go to staples and try chairs out ready to purchase one that "Spoke" to me and all were quite uncomfortable. The closest I could think of meeting my requirements that's not a pc theater chair is the leap v2 and I'm sort of willing to purchase one for the 800 it is. Not interested in buying a 6 year old cushion chair. Anyone have any recommendations?

Ordered while my Aeron is on backorder :|

I'm just under 6ft with medium build (190lb or so) - should be interesting but I've read nothing but good reviews and the back has similarities in looks to the Aeron

For anyone curious on its specs I found this online: https://a.sellpoint.net/a/Tempur-Pedic+ ... x8ZzEk.pdf

I’ve had this chair for all of two hours. Was able to build it in less than 20 minutes. Delivery in 3 days.

So far so good. Very impressed with the build quality itself. Height is easily adjustable. Back support is the best I’ve ever experienced.

Box says cushion made in usa and chair in taiwan.

Well I have something more premium than these amazon ones from many years ago, but most people won't pay $25/wheel for neoprene casters.
Since I don't have any of the amazon ones, I'm not going to link a specific one item.

One thing I know is that the format/functionality is amazing and if these were available at the time I probably would have gotten them at their prices.

@CHIA Ever used Fakespot as a Chrome extension? Should paint a clearer picture in terms of legit reviews. Give a ranking on the reliability of the reviews.

Oh that's interesting. Never thought of doing that before.

I'm on carpet, so it doesn't really matter to me (I don't think so anyways) - but still a cool thought.
