Can anyone recommend a good computer chair?

I'm sick of this cheapo swivel chair. It offers almost no lumbar support, and my lower back is suffering (made worse by a recent lower back injury).

How long is a piece of string ?

Seriously,you could spend a lot of money or around £50 for a half decent one.

What is your budget ?

I actually bought mine from a local business that provides stuff to offices, furniture, filing cabinets. paper, invoices etc, and I have to say it was worth every penny. Very comfy. Can't tell you the make I'm afraid as I've had it too long but its a lot better than the sort of things they sell in the likes of Argos. It was about £90-100 I think and is leather, if I remember rightly the cloth covered version of a similar chair was about £60. It had a 3 year guarantee too but its quite a bit older than that now. Its on wheels and is height adjustable which is very important for comfort.
Thats what I'd do go to a local company that supplies office supplies and see what they use and get one of them, you'll find what they use is good without going beserk pricewise.

The reason I went to the local place was so I could try it first as the couple I had before I bought mail order, looked great in the picture but wasn't as good in the flesh.

Go into Staples and try them out.

i got mine from Staples superstore. they had about 50 to choose from from £10 to £1000 great choice. i have one made by a company called lane which is great once you learn that you can relax while at the pc (previously had a typist chair!)

look for one with wide enough armrests so that you can rest your forearm comfortably on.

Get one where you can adjust the seat height, the back height and the back angle. Its also good if the back is sprung with a variable tension.

The chair is very nice as well ;-)
