    I don't leave home without it...well mostly because I work out of the house...

    Search on Craigslist I got mine for $300 delivered. Had to look for 2+ weeks but it was worth it. One of the best things I own. I figured if I'm going to be sitting here for 6-10 hours a day it better be in comfort.

    I got mine from EQ3 (it's the twist office chair for $199). It was recommended to me by friends and I love it and all friends and family who have tried it like it as well. I was trying to post the link for you to the website but as a new member I'm not allowed.

    The herman miller aeron is the greatest chair I have ever used. Fully adjustable lumbar support, tilit, armrest, everything. Shocks are damn good.
    Got a sweet deal on CL for $200 and my spinal cord couldn't be happier. Perfect condition . EBAY has some going for $320 right now.

    Chairs like the herman miller aeron chair are classed as 24 hour chairs and are typically used in offices where people work 6-10 hours a day. If you don't have the budget and are happy to sit on other peoples second hand chairs then you may find one for about $300-$500.

    I'm sure that a new 24 hour chair for $300 does not exist and if they do I bet it would be something nasty.

    Herman miller Aeron chair with polished aluminium legs would be my top pick but at £1200 ($1900) I feel the cost is a bit much.

    I would recommend the steelcase leap chair, extremely comfortable and better than the Aeron chair in my opinion. You could probably get one for $600-$700 without the chrome legs. I have one myself and love it.

    These chairs sell like hot cakes as second hand, you were very lucky to get it for $200. Just out of curiosity can I see the ad?

    I used to work for a company that had probably 500+ of these chairs so I guess that's were the main clientele is.

    Yep.. My fav. It forces you to sit proper or you wont be comfortable.

    I also found mine on CL for $250... Brand new!
