    He had 4 but already sold 2 otherwise I would of grabbed them, seems like a one off. You can find some bargains on eBay for new ones for good prices because there is so many on there for sale.

    Sorry, I gave the other one to the boss (Girlfriend).

    +1 Aeron user here. Best professional office chair I have ever used.

    I just purchased a Steelcase Please V2 for £125 ish off Ebay, today it arrived but is actually an older Herman Miller Aeron. I am not sure what to think, it is good value but not the chair I ordered. I am not entirely sure I like the feel of it and I do worry the front lip digging in to my legs.

    £125 for a Herman Miller Aeron is an incredible price (obviously depending on the condition). I guess you need to decide whether to (1) tell the company, (2) Use it if it's comfortable, (3) Sell it for a profit with the risk that the company will want it back.

    double check if its not a "refurb" some sellers replace the worn parts with parts that are not from herman miller. i have seen a few with plastic wheel bases that snap in next to no time

    I've found as well with the Aeron that I slouch in it a lot, I use it daily in the office.
    I've never felt fatigued whilst in the chair mind you, but I don't know if I'd have it in the house, prefer higher backed chairs.

    I do that on my Aeron at work. I keep sliding down it until I'm laying at a 45 degree angle :)

    On the Mirra 2 there’s a lever underneath the lip to adjust it up or down. Not sure if the Aeron has one but worth checking.

    Just taken delivery of a new Mirra 2. Took about 4 weeks to arrive but wow, easily the best chair I've owned. I've got osteoarthritis and 2 herniated discs which cause problems from time to time. This chair puts me in the correct posture and supports my lower back properly. It isn't a chair to lounge in, despite the excellent recline feature so if you're looking for a heavily cushioned seat look elsewhere. For me it's hugely comfortable (once I adjusted it properly) and I've sat in it for 8 hours without any sign of back ache - a first for me.
