I was just about to hit buy on a Chinese ergo chair from Amazon for about 130 quid but after reading a few threads on here Sunday morning I looked on Facebook marketplace and found a Herman Miller Mirra for 150 quid about an hours drive away. Third day sitting in it and am quite impressed, Monday evening I had a little back ache but I think that is due to me not sitting properly for so long.

Would still like to try out some of the models mentioned above such as the Sihoos and Ticova as they do seem to offer a lot for the money.

I bought a used Herman Miller Aeron online about 10 years ago and it was one of the best things I've purchased. I've admittedly had to replace a few parts for it over the years but I went from buying cheap office chairs on an almost yearly basis, to spending about £150 in one hit and it being a lot more a lot more durable as well as comfortable.

Can't really fault my Herman Miller Aeron. Been working from home for the last 3 years so spending 10+ hours in it per day and never had any discomfort. Only thing I've replaced is the gas lift for about £25 a year ago.

How did you find the replacement process? Mine has needed done for a while but it has looked like a bit of a handling in the videos I watched.

Very simple. The toughest part was getting the old one out of the legs as it was tightly wedged in. Had to support either side and give it a few not so gentle taps with a hammer.

I'm on the lookout for a decent home office chair myself at the moment. The used Herman Millers all seem to be 350+ near me. I've seen the Sihoo and also Boulies. Anyone had any experience with Boulies before?
