  • is the name SHOO meant to scare?

  • Few neg reviews on the comfort, particularly if you are on the larger side

    What's the consensus here for best price-performance / value buy for ergo office chair?
    All these 'bargains' like $500 or bloody thousands just seems crazy for a simple chair…

    • Buy a 1500 Herman miller and sell it down the track for more because they increase in price

    • Your best bet is to buy from any place that resells ex-office furniture, find the big brands and buy the best condition you can find.

    • +11

      Just my two cents … I've done probably over a hundred hours of research on office chairs.

      I also own the following
      - Herman Miller Aeron Remastered
      - Steelcase Gesture
      - Herman Miller Sayl
      - Haworth Zody

      Have used/owned:
      - Herman Miller Aeron (original)
      - Ergohuman V1
      - Ergohuman V2
      - Steelcase Leap V2
      - Sihoo M57
      - Tried all Officeworks brands as well

      Currently I would recommend for best value to be Haworth Zody second hand off FB marketplace for around $100-150

      Or if you want to spend a bit more on something better, Steelcase Leap V2 off FB marketplace.

      Hope that helps.

      • +1

        I've tried the Steelcase Karman in the showroom and it's better than the Aeron I have at work

        • Thanks for the tip…. good to know some experiences on the market for office chairs at the moment :)
          Ah yes, that's the one I've got my eye on next too…

          I almost pulled the trigger on this deal…

        • Better or not are all subjective based on the person. For example I find the Leap V2 very average, and the seatback/lumbar hurt my back after trying it for about an hour.

          • @Tbargain12: It definitely has a hard seat and not a lot of 'play' in it at first, but I assume most people would adapt to the new position

            Same experience with my Aeron, it didn't feel exceptionally 'comfy' at first but I feel amazing nowadays.

            • @rekke: Yep I'd say most people can eventually adapt to a new chair, however for me though, I wasn't willing to try and endure the pain from LEAP to see if it'll eventually go away, plus I just didn't like the design idea behind the chair anyway.

              Aeron on the other hand, I went in with an expectation of it being hyped and overrated, but soon as I sat down it was a great fit immediately, so I had to do it.

      • Thanks! What are your thoughts on the Sihoo? Is it a good replica?

        • +1

          @starbearer This is just my personal experience, but for me… the Sihoo generally felt cheap and not of high quality build. Considering for around $150-250 more you can get something premium like an Ergohuman or a Leap V2 I would probably spend the extra money.

          On paper it seemed like a really good option for a short/mid term solution until a better upgrade but once I had it I wasn't thrilled. Lack of seat depth adjustment was one that stood out to me as a drawback.

          But if you aren't spoiled like me having Steelcase/HM around, it probably is a good option but don't expect it to feel like a 'premium' chair.

        Any tips on what I should look up when buying 2nd hand from FB? I might give Haworth Zody a go.

        • @reverbs Well there are plenty of Haworth around so just make sure it doesn't make a bunch of weird noises when sitting on it.

          Also check for any cracks or damage in the lumbar support as that can be like $50 to replace.

          Ideally get one with arms, although I believe you can buy the arms at a later date for around $100 or so.

      • What would be your price point for a second-hand Steelcase Leap V2? Cheers

        • +1

          @babolat360 Probably somewhere between 450-600 depending on if it has arms or not. Definitely worth trying to haggle a bit ;)

          Someone on FB marketplace used this trick on me …. they came and tried out the chair I was selling, then said they weren't sold on it, then proceeded to lowball using that as justification. I met them somewhere in the middle.

          I'm pretty sure he was happy with it though :P

    • I got the one from Costco, looks incredibly similar to this one here but cost $300. Just myself thinking out loud

  • I have a new HM Aeron at work and it's amazingly good however I just purchased a metal framed Haworth Zody from marketplace for $150.

  • +2

    I'd be looking for an ergohuman instead, for the same sort of money.

  • For that sort of money…. I would look at a 2nd hand Steelcase Leap v2. Also for about $500 less, you can pickup a Haworth Zody off FB marketplace.

    Or same as above commentor, the Ergohuman is the same price as this but much more established brand. Personally though I did not like the Ergohuman V2 and preferred the original V1 - best to try in store.

    • Thanks for your advice. May I ask how tall you are (RE your Steelcase LV2 rec)? Do you know anywhere I can โ€œtry outโ€ that chair? Cheers!

      • I'm about ~172cm . You can try it out off FB marketplace office equipment re-sellers or I think Steelcase has a showroom in Sydney(?)

        From memory I tried it out in Paramatta Sydney

        I felt too short for the Ergohuman V2. Ergohuman V1 was good though. Ironically in the store I tried the Ergohuman at, all of the staff were sitting on Ergohuman V1s.

    • Hey mate would you go for either of these?



      $180 difference, $780 one says it's in excellent condition. I'm unable to go and test or see it though so would only be going on pictures shown.

      • +1

        Hi mate, where are you located? Best to try the chair first at Steelcase showroom or try in person from another seller local to you before buying

        That being said, those two listing are from the same person so you could ask them about the price discrepancy. Make sure to ask things like
        - how old is the chair
        - when was it bought/manufactured
        - any repairs made to it
        - are you aware of any issues

        For example I see many people selling off Aerons on FB but they are from like 2005 and have been repaired multiple times, but still charging a very high price due to the brand name.

        'Like new' versus 'very good' in my mind would be like scratches, blemishes, cosmetic signs of wear but no structural/mechanical issues with the chair but its subjective based on the seller

        Leap V2 with arms in very good condition for $600 is a good buy in my eyes :) Remember to keeps logs for the ATO if you can claim some of the depreciation on tax

        • Thanks for the info. I'm located in Syd and asked about those questions waiting for a response.

          The manufacture date for the $780 one is 2018 which seems ok.

          Will see what the responses are but cheers either way

    I know nothing about C300, but their most popular model Sihoo M57 gave back pain to me and my wife after just a couple of hours of using it.. It was seriously uncomfortable.

    • +1

      I have the M57 and find it comfortable, solid build quality for the price.

      Only issue I have is that I thought it was about the same height as my old chair but due to using mesh rather than padding itโ€™s a bit shorter for the desk I have so is a little awkward with that.

      Other than that I find it a comfortable chair. Just goes to show chairs suit everyone differently.

  • +1

    Leap V2 it's an awesome chair. Very comfortable seat and ergonomic, worth the money. I've been through many chairs

    • For me not so much, I find the seat very average, the lean mechanism feels very odd/creaky. The lumbar hurt my back after about an hour of using it. The weird gap between the seat and the back is also very strange.

  • +1

    There are Haworth Zody from official dealer Stylecraft's Outlet for about as low as $45x. Probably ex demo chairs etc.

  • I've got a Sihoo V1 at the moment. Been using it for about 2 months and I'm liking it so far. Solid enough, and comfortable and supportive.

    Lumbar doesn't go down low enough into the small of my back for my liking, but not a deal breaker.

    Also note that the Sihoo Doro c300 has just released a new/updated model, which is why these "1st gen" models are now being discounted.

  • +1

    Got mine last year for $509. Worked well for the money and I found my back didn't hurt as before. But yes if you're somewhat big frame then this one might not be for you.

  • I have one of this. The back is not fully adjustable. It can only lock in 3 angles.
