          It is the other way around. I have seen that you have issues with people posting anything here at OZB. Why don't you take some time off and relax a bit?

      • +13

        Its a limited time deal for a cheaper price then you can find elsewhere.

        Ozbargain is full of limited time deals, permanent price reductions etc.

        Think of Aldi like clearance products.

        If you know another $50 chair that is equal or better, post it and put a neg, thats how ozbargain works.

        • +4

          for a cheaper price then you can find elsewhere.

          where is that in the description or title to justify this as a bargain?

        • +6

          thats how ozbargain works.

          Nope, you are required to post bargains, not random catalogue items without justification…

          "Summarise briefly why it is a bargain - why did you buy it or consider it worth sharing? How does the price compare to elsewhere? Can you comment from personal experience on the quality of the product?"

          https://www.ozbargain.com.au/wiki/help:deal_posting_guidelin...

          It's not the responsibility of the people commenting to justify this is a bargain, it is up to the person posting

          @jv:

          While you are right about that, most people don't do that, even if it doesn't happen you have your own need as an ozbargainer to prove it as well.

          Don't whine and complain, post where it is cheaper elsewhere.

          If you are unable to find where its cheaper elsewhere, then OP is correct

          The only time this isn't relevant is for uninteresting items that nobody wants.

          This is an office chair that appears to be the cheapest in Australia, at least until you change that

        • @jv:
          $49.99 answers them all.

          "Bargain does NOT play the mark up and discount game does NOT mean it is NOT a bargain."—S.B.

        • @samfisher5986:

          While you are right about that, most people don't do that,

          They should… thus my opening comment.

        • @DoyA:

          Bargain does NOT play the mark up and discount game

          Thus why we vote.

          But that doesn't excuse the OP from not mentioning

          "why it is a bargain - why did you buy it or consider it worth sharing?"

        • +2

          @jv:

          I'm still waiting for you to post a better or equal $50 chair.

          Until that happens OP is right.

        • @samfisher5986:

          Until that happens OP is right.

          It’s the other way around

          @jv:

          He's posted a deal to share with everyone.

          You are just whining and contributing nothing.

        • @samfisher5986:

          He's posted a deal to share with everyone.

          But hasn't qualified why they considered this was a deal.

          What is the saving?

        • @samfisher5986:

          You are just whining and contributing nothing.

          I'm actually discussing the 'supposed' deal, you are not… You are just whining and contributing nothing.

          "why it is a bargain", when it is not something so special than people have no idea how cheap would make it a bargain, ppl do need to explain. But, chair? man?

      metal legs on the Aldi one looks nicer IMO

    • +1

      The Mondrian chair is twice the price. The only review on it isn't good.
      I bought the Aldi chair last time. It's excellent value for money.
      It's sturdy and comfortable. Looks much more expensive.

  • time to stock up for this

    • +17

      It’s a $50 office chair, were you expecting a lifetime warranty??

      • -12

        By that logic, if you buy screen protector for $5, it would only come with a 5 week warranty, no possible way you should expect more right?

        Anyway I just brought it up because they are basically saying they can only see the chair lasting a year at least.

  • +20

    Owned this, cushion will be flat within a week if used everyday.

    • +6

      I agree I've been using it for a year bought it last year and it's pretty good.

      the fabric has not worn off in spite of daily use.

      Metal legs look beautiful, great value for money. No comparable chair at this price anywhere

        You mean you disagree?

      • what @witsa said — did you mean to agree or disagree with JAKEBAB? : )

    • -4

      May be weight dependent. If you're 80 kg it should be fine.

      • i'm 80kg. cushion is flat.

      • +2

        nope - not weight dependent. Am 72 - it took around 1-2 month for cushion to flatten.
        Used around 10-15 hours a week.

        • Maybe my model from two years ago has a different cushion.

    • +33

      Had this for almost 2 years and used it approx. 20hrs/week during uni and 1hr/week during uni or semester breaks. I'm 72kg and cushion does get flat overtime but not to the point where it will bother you. I actually prefer a seat with less cushion.
      One thing I did notice is that it holds in farts for a longer period of time.

      • +1

        Do you stick your nose to the seat? How do you know this?

        • +18

          I put my cat on it and he started sniffing it. Other chairs he hasn't done that.

        • @gezza90: lmao did not expect that answer, good test!!!!

        • +8

          @gezza90: Ah yes, the ever reliable cat scan!

      • I just fold a sheet to cushion it, it does start to get a little uncomfortable without it, this is if you're using 8+hrs.

        The base is good quality and gives you good stability, the old $40 from Officeworks got wobbly.

        For $50 I find it to be great

    • +1

      I got it two years ago, I assembled it, used 10-20 hrs in total (I don’t need a chair), looks and works like new. Hope that helps.

    • thanks for the info i was about to buy it

  • +2

    Awesome, I might line up and get one.
    My chair is old and I barely have to use it anymore, so I reckon this will do the job.

    • +1

      Thanks. I’ll wait on a buro chair sale.

  • +6

    Bought one last year. The seat cushion is quite rigid and thin and you can't really adjust it very much. It looks fancy but it's actually quite basic.

    • Ah dammit. I had high hopes for this. Wanted try it out before I bought it though which would be hard to do that Saturday 8:30AM. Maybe I'll bring my tools.

      • +1

        you can always try it for 60 days and return it?

        • I don't know if I wanna be one of those people that come back to return something and push in line when the cashier is swiping items through.

        • +1

          @nuffjah: I always wait in line

    • +2

      But more importantly, how does it compare to other $50 chairs?

      • +3

        Generally most $50 office chairs are exactly the same….crap!

        • +3

          Sounds like you need to wipe better before sitting down.

  • +1

    Good chair for the price.

    White stains don't come off easily though

    • +4

      What are you doing to get white stains on… Never mind, I don't really want to know!

      • +2

        Toothpaste… it happens all the time !

      • +2

        Get your mind off the gutter, hotmustardsauce is clearly talking about liquid paper stains

      • +2

        It's anything but hot mustard sauce.

      • +2

        Eating yogurt at the computer

  • +22

    Maximum recommended weight: 120kg

    So effectively useless for 90+% of OzBargainers.

  • +2

    I have this from last year when it was on sale in Aldi. The back support isn't great and the cushion is rigid. barely used it for a week, and started gathering dust since then.

    • +5

      started gathering dust since then

      Sounds like it's quite an attractive chair

  • +1

    Looking for an home office chair, and not interested in this Aldi one nor that other ergohuman/buro/aeron that everyone raves about, and neither the akracing ones (too gamey), really hard to find reviews on anything else,
    so my short list ATM:
    IKEA's Cloth markus at $250
    secretlabchairs's OMEGA 2018 at $500
    officeworks Kennedy $350 or harvard $250

    Thoughts/advice?
