    Been looking at the RH Logic 400, reviews look good and seems to do everything I'd like in a chair which is mainly slouch when watching YT.

    How does the G64 lumbar support work? It looks fixed?

    The Please V2 is so good because the lumbar support is hinged and moves to support your lower back, whether you're sitting bolt upright like a good person, or having a recline with your feet on the desk (definitely not me during meetings :p)

    Yes it's fixed on the standard model and the adjustable is an additional option.

    What's the opinions on the G64 Original? I'm in the market for a replacement chair (currently have a Vertagear, which the fake leather is splitting like mad)

    Seems it was a misquote off the site, it's the G64, Original Black fabric

    Then please read the thread or do a search for Giroflex, I posted some feedback about it.

    I didn’t like the standard g64 as it felt too small. The managers 64 felt more comfy and supportive

    When making comments like that it's useful to give your size and weight to give people some sense of perspective. :)

    OK I see, so you are relatively tall and well built and you would need the wider model of the Giroflex 64 (like many high-end chairs it comes in different sizes).

    The IKEA Markus can the arms be removed don't think it would fit under my desk with them on.

    Had a bit of a sit in an Aeron in John Lewis today. It was easily the best of the limited selection of chairs they had on show (mostly their own brand and humanscale). Certainly in a higher league than the Orangebox from the short time I sat in it.

    But for the best part of a grand? Not sure.

    Quite tempted by the Mirra 2 though if the quality and sitting experience is similar.

    Well a 2nd hand remastered Aeron with the posturefit support is upwards of £700 as far as I can tell and the 12 year warranty doesn't transfer. £900 for a new one doesn't seem that much of a stretch.

    I think you need to spend a little more time searching, as if I google "Herman miller posturefit used uk" then it gets quite a few hits that seem around £450. Just go though the first couple of pages of links.
