TRENDING

Gday!

Been looking for a killa deal on Ergo chairs for months now and THIS is the one everyone. $155.99 with mailing list sign-up discount.

The key things to look for with an ergonomic chair.

  • Weight rating. Its got to support you right? and weight rating is a good indicator of quality of materials and engineering.
  • Adjustability. It has every type of adjustment you will need with a good office chair.
  • Mesh: Mesh helps with air flow and circulation. Meaning less fatiguing.

I have NOT tried this chair. But it ticks the boxes and at $160 delivered its got to be worth a punt.

Comes in Black, White/grey and blue/grey.

There are a couple other chairs also on sale on Kogan. But this was my pick for getting something cheap for work.

HOW TO GET THE DEAL:

  • Use code: TRENDING to get 15% off.
  • Sign up for Kogan First trial to get free shipping.
  • Can also get a further $5 off by signing up to their mailing list and using the discount code.

    The base looks like it is plastic?

    •  

      looks like metal if you select the other colours

      •  

        Yeh the white/grey and blue/grey have the metal base. Which is BS if you ask me. But I think the black one is more aimed for office environment. I did email asking about the metal base and its a no go for an upgrade.

    I know OzBargain believes everything is the same quality and it's only the price that changes, but good luck getting a quality chair for $160.

    •  

      You mean. Good luck beating this deal? or not expecting much for $160?

      Regardless. The biggest problem with cheap chairs is the lack of adjustability and their load capacity imo. There are many other variables of course. But bottom line is if youre too heavy the thing will break. And if you cant adjust it to your body it'll never be comfortable or ergonomic.

      Ill see how this goes. My other chair is GT Marriot which is regularly rebranded and sold for $900+ so ill have a good comparison to make. Which I also got for $400 3 years ago because it was being cleared out of a store. Been trying to get a second chair for work ever since…

      **EDIT

      I thought I would also add that this Ergolux is by no means meant to be a competitor with a higher end brand. If you have $1000 to spend don't buy this. Buy a used Herman Miller aeron and be done with it.

      IMO. Tiers would be.

      Brand new Herman Millar>Used Herman Millar>Ergohuman V2/v3 $400-600 range>THis chair at $160>Something free.

      I wouldnt spend $300-500 on an unknown chair tbh. Not worth the risk.

      I wish the Buro Metro would come back at $239 again. Now that is a fantastic chair. Comfy to sit on, adjustable, mesh back, love it.

        Buro Metro is comfy.

      •  

        I bought the Buro Metro after recommendations, and it’s a solid, quality chair. However, the seat is very wide. Wider than any other office chair I’ve used.

        It makes the armrests pretty useless, because even at their narrowest setting, my arms want to sit inside them rather than on them.

  •  

    This looks very similar to the Onex GE300 chair going for $289

    https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/onex-gamin...

    I got one and not 100% happy with it. The base is a bit too high

    •  

      I've got the same issue and the headrest is too far back

      •  

        yeh the headrest is useless for me. The biggest problem is the chair being too high for my desk so my arms/shoulders have to lean down lower than usual. After awhile they start to get stiff and sore

        Poor purchase for $289

        •  

          I had exactly the same issue I've resolved it by swapping the armrest so they are facing backwards and it looks alright

          •  

            @UrbionPT: how do you swap the armrest?

            How does the armrest facing backwards when height is the problem?

            •  

              @Homr: You were to quick I was just editing my comment - just realized not the same issue, my issue was that the armrests were too far forward and wouldn't go under the desk

      The Onex GE300 seems ok. But doesnt have nearly the adjustability of the Ergolux chair I posted.

    •  

      these are obviously different… unless you count almost all office chairs the same.

      look at the whole back and base structure.

        Completely different chairs. Not even in the same category haha.

        I've spent a good amount of time looking at every ergo chair under $1000 and while companies do brand generic chairs. Or buy individual parts to make up their own in this case its chalk and cheese.

      I have both the Ergolux London Ergonomic Chair, and the officeworks Onex GE300. Big different between the two and I much prefer the Ergolux due to comfort and being all mesh.

      But I left the headrests off.

        Awesome to hear.

        Could you give a quick mini review of the London for the people finding this post?

        • +3 votes

          Ergolux London Ergonomic Chair:

          I suffer from lower back problems, and found the seat online with some mixed reviews. Decided to roll the dice anyway and whilst only using for a couple weeks now, I find it to be very comfortable.

          The Mesh base and back are soft and supportive, there some kind of memory foam at the front for your legs and top for your shoulders. Lumbar support is present but not adjustable. As for the build, the wheels move freely and plastic base appears sturdy.

          My only criticism is that for its first couple of days it had a pungent burnt plastic small.

          •  

            @darkly: Seems reasonable. So the lumbar adjustable part doesnt really do that much? Eye balling it looks like its not that substantial regardless.

            The smell would more than likely be because the chair will be made from ABS. Which is an awesome engineering plastic. It should hold up really well then.

            •  

              @Justin Powell: The lumbar section is just a plastic arm applying some pressure against your back, its not reinforced or movable.

              It still applies light force and if I ever need more, I may just wedge something in behind the arm.

              •  

                @darkly: Oh right. That makes sense. I thought it could be moved up and down. I'd have preferred to have that adjustability. THe elliot does. But no black version so I couldnt get it for work anyway.

          •  

            @darkly: Hi, would you recommend it for short people (~165cm)? My main concern with the majority of chairs is the seat depth which doesn't allow the feet to reach floor comfortably. And I'm using a foot rest but still would prefer not a deep seat.

      I was eye balling both for a while. Price wise these two (also branded as Ergodukes on other sites) alternate eachother. So I don't even know which model is meant to be superior to be honest.

      I needed a black one for work and also the back on the Elliot looks weird. I'm not spider man so that was two strikes for me.

    Just as a point of comparison, I have the Ikea JÄRVFJÄLLET. It's $249 and everything about it is excellent except for the lack of padding on the seat cushion. Highly customisable headrest and lumbar support. I have had to buy an additional memory-foam cushion.

    I would be very interested in your review of the Ergolux London when it arrives for you OP!

    • +2 votes

      The 10 year guarantee on that ikea chair is pretty impressive I must admit.

      Ill post a little update when I get the ergolux :) im an Industrial Designer by profession so I should be able to give it a thorough review.

    • +2 votes

      I have the JÄRVFJÄLLET too. Its a decent chair. But does not suit people shorter than 170cm as the chair does not go low enough. My biggest critism would be that the seat padding is too thin. And my arse hurts after seating on it for >1 hour.

      I pulled the trigger on this kogan chair. Will post again to let you guys know how it compares to the ikea.

      •  

        and JÄRVFJÄLLET looks very ugly.

  •  

    I have an Ikea Markus chair which whilst doesn't have a lot of adjustment available and is a little heavy seems quite a solid chair. I'm curious as to how something like this would compare - tempted to try something else but really have no space to store an unused chair… Thoughts?

    •  

      Honestly I think the ergolux London will slap the markus. But that's just my on paper assessment.

      However since you already own the markus I wouldn't recommend it unless you are unhappy. Espically because I am yet to try either.

      You might be better saving up and getting a ergohuman v2/v3 for a really proper upgrade.

    @OP another thing to look for is how many hours rated the chair is. Can make a huge difference if sitting in it for longer than a few hours at a time.

    This looks similar to one I bought in my deal last month
    https://www.mydeal.com.au/ergoduke-ultra-flex-ergonomic-comm...

    I returned it after a week.

    The non cushion seat was so uncomfortable, I could only sit on it for 1 hour max before my ass was numb. I don’t think mesh is the way to go for the seat.

    It was also to low to the ground (even when fully extended by gas lift)

    •  

      Sucks it didnt work out for you mate. Everyone's bodies are different. I already have a mesh chair and absolutely love it so I have no worries about long term comfort or sore bums personally.

      I think there is a cheaper version with a cushioned bottom: https://www.mydeal.com.au/ergoduke-deluxe-low-back-mesh-ergo...

      But I can't imagine a cheap chair having good cushioning anyway.

    •  

      Hi. Did you return it with the packaging? Unfortunately I threw some of the packaging, still have the box though.

      Also, did they just offer store credit?

      The chair hurts my thigh and it's really uncomfortable after a couple hours sitting on it.

      The 75 bucks IKEA chair is more comfortable than this chair unfortunately.

      •  

        Did you have to pay postage when returning it?

        • +1 vote

          I need to pay postage and it's 120 bucks. I think I'm gonna sell it for a loss. 100 bucks

        •  

          Yes I need to pay postage and unfortunately it costs a fortune to send it back to Kogan, 120 bucks to send it back. I don't mind if it's slightly uncomfortable but it's so uncomfortable to the point that it hurts to walk.

  •  

    I found this chair comfortable but the gas lift started leaking after the warranty expired. Slow leak so have to manually lift up every few hours.

    •  

      Thats annoying mate. Gas lift and wheels are the most common issue with cheap chairs.

      Hopefully mine will last longer.

      Have you tried getting a replacement gas lifter? I'd imagine they would use a generic part.

      •  

        I haven't looked for a replacement,I don't need to adjust the height so might just get some PVC and add it as a sleeve to fix it.

        •  

          Haha. I was thinking you could do something like that.

          I've gerryrigged and Frankensteined a few hard rubbish chairs. And you can salvage parts pretty easily. So maybe keep an eye out for one with a broken wheel or busted leather and steal the gas lifter.

  •  

    I got the Ergolux Everest when it was $129. It is comfortable, no problem so far. Agree with the above review, I got the weird plastic smell too. It still there after a week of usage.

    •  

      how is the lumbar support mate?

  •  

    anyone who bought this could they confirm if the seat can adjust forwards and backwards like the Ergolux Elliot

    •  

      Yes it can. If you look through the photos you will see the base and arm adjustments ghosted out.

      But funnily enough if you look closely the Elliot and London share the same base, arms and head rest. Its only the back thats different.

    Thanks OP, bought one in the white/grey colour. Will report back when it arrived. Looks pretty decent for the price.

      Nice! Hopefully it suits you mate.

  •  

    What is the seat depth? I'm 167 cm so I have problems with chair with bigger seat depth (like metro buro with seat depth of 49 mm)

    •  

      Seat base is adjustable and can slide forward and back so it may be enough to suit you im not sure.

      •  

        Thanks! Bought one yesterday.

    Only white and blue left

  •  

    Dont know if anyone will see this…
    My chair arrived yesterday and i just put it together and it seems like the gas lift is empty? wondering if i put it together wrong or its just empty

    •  

      Is it not holding weight when you adjust it upwards?

      •  

        nope none at all

        •  

          Hmmm you could have a fault lifter. Id contact kogan right away.

          But when you lift the seat up the lever engages and it lifts up? Or the lever does nothing and it just stays down?

          Cos if you have a leaky lifter it can take months for them to properly die.

          Either way Kogan for a replacement would be my bet.

  •  

    yep ive already emailed kogan. when i pull the lever the chair stays down

  •  

    I have used it for 3 days. To be very honest, it's not comfortable at all. The 75 bucks IKEA chair is more comfortable than this.

    First, the mesh is very hard on your thigh. Mind you. the 75 bucks IKEA chair has very thin cushion and it's also hard, but somehow it's more comfortable.

    Second, it would be too small for people who is taller than 170 cm. The chair is tiny and if you have tall torso, the headrest is basically useless.

    I've asked another 3 people to sit on both chairs and all of them say that the IKEA chair is more comfortable.

    •  

      I think the biggest concerning thing todo with your review is the height thing 170cm is not very tall (for guys).

      Mesh chair usually aren't super comfy for short bursts. But still got a great sign.

      Have you done some longer sessions in is? 4+ hours.

      Mine arrived but I havent put it together since the box will be easier to transport to work.

    •  

      Hey mate, do you remember if you removed a cap from the top of the gas lift when assembling?

      •  

        I don't think I removed anything from the top of the gas lift. I followed this video ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5PjpYv5qlE

      •  

        I didnt do this when I built mine mate. Did you remove yours? perhaps thats why your lifter wont work.

        •  

          Sometimes they come with a cap on them and you have to remove it before it can activate. No, I didn't remove anything from mine

  •  

    Yeah, I think this is my worst purchase based on ozbargain recommendation. My back and leg hurt and it's getting worse. My legs are so sore it feels as if i have just done squat.

    Total 4 people sat on my chair and they prefer the cheap IKEA chair. My wife sat on it for an hour or two and her legs started to feel numb.

    It's just so uncomfortable and we've tried all variations of adjustments.

    I don't think I have the heart to sell it to other people even at half price. However, returning it to Kogan seems to be a stuff of nightmare and they only refund store credit. Goodbye $160

      Sorry to hear its not working out for you mate.

      So far mine is going just fine. But we have completely different body types. I'm 181cm 90ish kg and I note you said you are 167cm. I've noticed the mesh is pretty firm compared to my more expensive GT marriot. So I could imagine a lighter person wouldnt get much of the spring that mesh has.

      I wouldnt think twice about selling it if I were you. People come in all shapes and sizes and so far I am pleased with mine, my best mate who is 183 and about 80kgs says he loves his. Throw it up on market place and just get people to try it.

      Numb legs however does not sound right at all. Something is cutting circulation and if you can't adjust the chair to stop getting numb legs then it is absolutely not for you. Another thing I will note with mesh chairs. Is you have to have proper posture when you sit in them. Even my GT marriot or the herman miller chairs i've sat in. As soon as you slouch or lounge they become uncomfortable quickly.

      •  

        Awaiting mine with some trepidation now. I am 90kg and 191cm so it doesn’t look as if it will suit me.

      •  

        the reason for numb legs is he's short.

        i am currently sitting on this chair. it is certianly not very comfortable, but nothing to complain either.

        just one questions. there are two levers, one is for the gas lift; what does hte other one do?

          moves your seat forwards/backwards

            @CatmanAintDead: I found this adjustment helped the most with my comfort level. So definitely worth tweaking.
