I'm on the hunt for a decent chair, something with decent adjustable back support. Ideally a chair that I could sit upright in for K&M and then recline back for controller games/watching movies.

My son and wife use the PC regularly, and I'm a short **** too, so nothing that relies on the user being 6'5".

Anyone bought something recently that they could recommend?

Looking for one myself but still havn't found a decent one yet

Yes, I'm happy with it. I have to admit, I'm not using the PC too much right now as I've got heaps of stuff to do, but the time I've spent on it I've got no complaints.

Beware of the Markus. I bought one from the recommendations here, as well as a short try in the store. After using it for a few weeks, I frankly couldn't stand it. The back "support" is really just a bump that forces you in to what I found to be a very unnatural position, one where you can sit up and your upper back/head is unsupported or one where your lower back isn't bit your upper is. IKEA do have a decent returns policy, so if you live near a store they're worth a go, but be wary if you live far from one as returning it will be more of an effort. What may feel great in store can feel horrendous over time.

:edit: don't take the above as gospel, just trying to balance the scales a bit for anyone reading and making their mind up from other's experiences like I did!

yeah a couple of other people on this forum mentioned that issue as well, i do like the look of the herman miller aeron but don't fancy spending £360 on a chair just yet. But if i dont find one i might just do that

+1 for Aeron if you want a really good supportive seat.

You can get them various places for around the £300 mark.

Your back will thank you.
