I first got this chair at work due to an office upgrade. After a year of comfort at 50-60 hours a week I hated my chair at home more and mow. So, I bought one myself for home. No, it's not cheap. Yes you get what you pay for.
Waited over a year to finally but this chair. I was so concerned that I'd be throwing good money after bad but I was wrong. It is absolutely the most comfortable office chair I've had in 30 years. Wish I had gotten it sooner. This review was written after 4 weeks of 40+ hour a week usage.
