Well as you’ve already read, my chair unfortunately broke in the middle of my Live and Loud processing spree…
I’ve got a bunch of other stuff to update about too, grr!
Anyway I’m back in the office so here’s a quick update (was in Malacca yesterday).
I noticed a while back A M-Office Group was having an end of year sale (Up to 45% off), I was thinking about upgrading my chair anyway seen as though I spend so much time sitting on it.
We spend a fortune on phones, shoes…clothes and food (for me) so I thought why not spend a bit on my back and get a decent chair.
I’m not getting any younger, so my chair breaking forced my hand and off I went to Plaza Perabot LDP (AM Office is there on the first floor).
They sell a lot of models of office chairs so I knew I’d have a good selection to choose from, the Raynor ErgoHuman Mesh Chair did pass through my mind too – but I thought it was rather expensive and outside of my budget (capped at RM1500 for sanity sake).
You know – the one Boss Stewie was dreaming of owning..
And the one that Yong Fook bought.
I tried out a few chairs, not had a high enough back to support my head..or were comfortable.
So the chap pointed out the Ergohuman, proudly displayed at the front…so I tried it out – orgasmically comfortable it was.
So I checked the price….and it was inside my budget with 30% discount from the original price of RM1788 it came in at about RM1295 (the leather version around RM1550).
I tried both the leather and the mesh version, but thought the mesh version would be better as I don’t use air con at home so with leather my ballsack might stick to the chair…which would be bad.
It’s adjustable in about every direction and caters up to my size (6’5″ is their recommended max), so the headrest fits perfectly and it definitely has the best lumbar support of any chair I’ve tried – you can see here:
So now I’m just waiting – it’ll arrive on Monday or Tuesday.
Woookay….you’re convincing me more and more by the minute. Now, I gotta own one…too bad I spent all my dosh on PC Fair…sigh!
nice! I couldn’t be happier with mine.
nice.. very nice..
my new chair aint too bad too…RM400 with adjustable armrests and lumbar support!
hahahaa… boss stewie is pissed…
really nice chair though… would love to have one in my room too…
yea.. great choice as it’s a great chair. Been using it in my office.
Woah! Very very nice & high tech! BTW tq for dropping at my site! Have a nice day!
And I thought you might be getting the Herman Miller series chairs which cost USD$1k for one 😛
my back is aching… any cheaper alternative?
Damn lol that chair would surely burn a hole in anyone’s pocket. It should probably work much better compared to those cheap flawed / low quality chairs which were made here though.
Quite an expensive chair, i haven’t had the luxury of spending anything above 500 for a office/working chair. Ergonomics chair totally blow the price off the rooftop. Feeling comfy is one important factor, but do you feel secure? I’ve tried a few chairs that will give you a sense of insecurity when you do adjustments or you move around, or simply just lying down.
Nice. I must invest in a good chair too soon if my boss doesn’t give me the one from work … sorry, Ex-Boss. I resigned today. 🙂
Hmmm. Hey want to come over to my place for a LAN party wtf. Bring chairs.
yeah LAN party sounds good, everyone bring their own chairs!!!
get few sets of Lego! you may built one to any height you like!
Whats the material made off?
Understand the ergo chair is very expensive but for 7 years i have been working with my current company… i don’t have any backache issue as they provided each of their employees an ergo chair in the office.
I would like to recommend all of you to consider ergo chair. You would not regret for the money that you have paid.
davidlian: Save save save, you’ve got until Dec 31st 🙂
yongfook: Great stuff, glad to hear it was the right choice.
suanie: Don’t rob me please!
Boss Stewie: Ahahaha jealous much?
ShadowFox: Oh how I wish it was paid…might have got the chair for cheaper.
dreckker: Buy buy buy!
v0ices: Ah another user, good stuff..hopefully can get loaded and buy one for office too.
Horny Ang Moh: No probs.
Mark: Nah prefer the ‘just as comfy but 1/3 of the price’ version.
CincauHangus: Yah go check out AM they have chairs from RM48 to RM2k so something for everyone.
moons: Yah fingers crossed it won’t break anytime soon 🙂
Jonathan: Yah my previous chair was about RM400, this one is extremely solid – all metal frame.
Dabido: If you spend a lot of time on the PC at home it’s definitely a worthwhile investment.
Dr. Tan: I’ll bring a stool 😀
MIB: Yah the frame all metal, not sure if it’s stainless or just chromed. The seating support is nylon mesh.
TZ: Yeah agree with you totally. Saving your back is worth a little investment.
My Steelcase Uno task chair broke, right at the flex-arm hinge under the arm-rest. Will have to be welded back. Fuhgedabouddit–tried the Ergohman mesh at the OfficeDepot and I am sold.
Wandering where i can get purchase this raynor ergonomic chair….for the mentioned price of RM1200++
shamsul: Unless you can time travel back to 2007 when this post was written – nowhere. Otherwise you can pay whatever price AM Office is selling it for now 🙂
