Ergonomic office chairs like this usually cost £150-250, this is an absolute steal at this price if Amazon honours it.

Disclaimer: They do say "usually dispatched within 1 to 3 months", so be prepared for a possible long wait. I've had Amazon say things will be dispatched at the end of the month before though, and they've been dispatched in a few days - so take it with aa pinch of salt.

Edit: Also one without a headrest for £43, thanks madhouse77:

I already have this chair (without headrest) I paid around £90 two years ago and can honestly say that it's the best office chair you will ever get at this price point. I've just paid £90 for a chair for my wifes home office from a well know office supply shed and its pants compared to this. From memory it comes with a three year warrenty. A bolt fell out of one of the armrest's and got lost. I e-mailed Top Star and received a replacement within a week. German engineering with quility customer service. Order with confidence this is a great chair.

One way to find out, I will let you know if it ever arrives!

These chairs are absolutely awesome... if they're anything like the original herman miller aeron.

I was working 14 hours a day in the office & my back couldn't take it, it would absolutely kill. 2 weeks after getting an aeron, all pain is completely gone. My wife (when pregnant) would sit in the chair for 10 minutes and it would do the same trick for her.

The aeron runs at around £1000+ new (cheaper on ebay). If this chair even comes close to the aeron in terms of comfort, it's absolutely worth this price. Heat!

bought it. Free delivery! woohoo!

anyone know if I can order on card and change payment to giftcard when it arrives in post?

You can pick another payment method before the order processes, so whilst out of stock you still have the option. Not sure how it would work with a gift card, you may need to ask Amazon chat if they can do it for you.

Remember to check for airbags

Just done it and looks like you do have option to apply gift card balance.

Looks like £227 on Viking without the head rest Viking

Why are you comparing this to a Herman Miller?

In a previous job, I was lucky enough to have a herman miller aeron at my desk... I've wanted to buy one for home ever since then, but I can't justify the cost (more important things to spend £1000 on)... So I've bought chairs like this (aeron-style mesh chairs) but they quality isn't comparable and they barely last a year before things start breaking/giving (aerons cost £1000 for a reason)...

To compare this to an aeron is like comparing this:http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attachments/indian-car-scene/93425d1232986628-indian-car-would-go-reva2.jpg

I doubt this would compare well to a Steelcase Leap you can get on eBay for £200, let alone a £1000 Aeron. But it looks way better than most office chairs that cost £50.

thanks OP, ordered, hope it's worth the wait

Ordered....will find out late August how good it is. Thanks OP, as many have said before me "hope it's worth the wait" worse case it can go back!

linhang90

Is it comfy thho


Yes. It is. I've got one (without headrest) and the mesh back is very comfy, and cool.

Worth a go, looking for a nice decent chair to replace my knackered one but happy to wait, as long as this comes off at some point in the future, I'll be happy.

​bought this, thanks

The one without the headrest looks more comfortable than the one with the headrest. I think they both have different designs.

This chair may start to fall apart after a year but IMO at this price you're not likely to find a chair that's event comparable in terms of ergonomics.

Big thanks Op. Ordered. I already have this chair (without headrest) I paid around £90 two years ago and can honestly say that it's the best office chair you will ever get at this price point.

That's good to hear. I was close to getting one of these on Amazon a few years back, but just before I hit buy they went out of stock. I created this price alert, and it finally came back! But not before I'd already got an Ergohuman from eBay. Very comfy, but it was six times this price...

​bought this, thanks


Not sure that's the only difference. The one without the headrest has a different seat i.e it's described as "Three-dimensionally moveable Orthoseat, orthopedically shaped". The Headrest one doesn't say this and looks different.

For one without headrest, can you get a headrest for it?

It doesn't look like it has the rocking seat (some may prefer this). I cannot find this one on the Topstar website. Can anybody else spot it?

Usually dispatched within 1 to 3 months

No, the picture on Amazon shows that the head rest is built into the back frame as one unit.

How about a basic office chair for £25.68 here

when will amazon take payment?
