    Kinda freaky but I didn't even know what the chair I was sitting on was called and only recognized it when I clicked through.

    I am not sure about it's ergonomic properties, but it is very comfy and super adjustable. I have it set so it leans back when I do but with resistance.

    The material it is skinned with is like a net or web and very comfortable.

    No issues with the quality - very heavy too.

    Heh... my chair was like $100, works fine for me. It was both the cheapest and the most comfortable at the store (was on clearance), so was a pretty easy decision. I'm big though too, 6'5, so I need a really high back and longer arm rests.

    One of the first things I did when I decided to get serious about web publishing was buy a good chair. Mine is a pretty standard ergonomic chair; I think it cost about $270. The one I had before I could sit back straight and have my feet on the floor, anything more than 40 minutes of work and I started getting really uncomforable.

    I've went to every office store, wal-mart, target and sat in chairs ranging from $100 to $400 and NONE were comfy. The chair I have now is about 5 or so years old and the seat is about flat from being used daily.

    I wish there was a local place to try these chairs out they look like much higher quality, and TONS of adjustability.

    One of my friends dreams of having that chair. He is constantly trying to find some scheme to convince his company to buy him one.

    I sat in that chair a couple of times at a Computer Lan center and it feels pretty good, but I don't know if it's worth that kind of money. You can get a two piece sofa for that amount. I bought a black leather chair from Staples online about 5 years ago and I have no problem with it.

    Oh crap, you're 6'5? I'm only 5'9. You make me feel like a midget.

    I'm sitting in one right now and I love it. Once you go to an Aeron you won't go back.

    It took me two years to pull the trigger with that price tag but it is well worth it. We had some at an office job I worked that got me hooked.

    I'm surprised none of the others here have one as much time as everyone spends sitting down.

    Get it and don't look back!

    I can go for those back massage chairs like the I-Joy. I can sit in those things for hours.

    Arrow

    I did some research and ppl who had used the Aeron and the Leap said the leap was SLIGHTLY better. (Multiple people said this, and also the reports coming back from users and scientific studys etc, leap it was)

    So, without waiting anymore as I need to use my current chair now in another place I pulled the trigger and ordered the SteelCase Leap w/platinum base in blue.

    Office Enviroments had the best price + a 10% off coupon. Everyone (i could see) who sells them has free shipping too. Being in CA I had to pay tax though If I wouldn't have it would have been around $750 TOTAL shipped, take another $50 off if you get a normal black base not platinum.

    I'm excited

    Oh and I'm also wondering if my AMEX will give me 5% off since it's an office supply company or if they only do that for office max/depot/etc... Would be AWESOME to save another $30 or so

    Ok. 12-15 day lead time on a chair with a black base.
    4-5 week lead time on a chair with a platinum or aluminum base

    Guess I'll be sitten in this one for another month.
