The best chair with only a few negatives Aug 15, 2011
I have had this chair for three years now. It is the most comfortable chair I have ever had.
It is priced high but you will get many years out of it.
I can only think of three negatives.
1. On cold days this chair is freezing. (put a blanket on it)
2. Women say it will ruin pantyhose and some fabrics.
3. Don't fart. Everyone in a 100 yard radius will hear it.

Simply the best Sep 11, 2005
By Davey Williams
The Aeron chair has become the industry standard for high quality design combined with ergonomic sensibility. They last forever, are as comfortable as any chair ever made and look great in any setting. I would beg to disagree with the other reviewer who whines about price. The chair costs a couple hundred more than cheaper alternatives, but can you really place a dollar value on not having your spine collapse at 40? This is the BMW of chairs, so one pays a premium for the superlative quality and engineering of the product.
The Aeron is an excellent investment piece whose long term value is unquestionable. For anyone who sits for long periods and has ever had back, neck, shoulder, or coccyx pain, this chair is a must.

The best chair on the market, despite difficult installation Mar 07, 2007
Yes, the Aeron Chair is expensive. It's the Mercedes Benz of chairs - and with good reason. First of all, it comes in 3 sizes to fit all sorts of body types (check the Herman Miller website for a sizing chart). Secondly, it's extremely adjustable (assuming you get the "highly adjustable" version and not the "basic"). Everything from the tilt of the seat, the arm rests, and the tension of the reclining back can be adjusted. Thirdly, the pellicle mesh fabric lets your bottom and back breath, and never do you feel too warm while sitting in it for long periods of time (which is common when you work at an office). Lastly, the quality of the chair is first-class. The main supports are made of metal while the frame is made up of a hard, quality plastic. Everything adjusts and moves without any squeeks or loose parts whatsoever.
Be aware that you can buy the Aeron Chair in various forms - each having some form of options added or omitted. The PostureFit System is great for lower-back support. It's a subtle effect, but certainly beneficial. You can also buy additional casters (wheels) for deep carpet or for a smooth floor. The Aeron Chair also comes in various colors - Graphite, Titanium, and even an "Executive" version with a shiney chrome finish.
The only reason I didn't rate this chair with a full 5-stars is the difficult installation of the PostureFit system (typically a $30 option). While it's not complicated, it does take some strength and dexterity to fiddle with a tight tension wire and the back of the chair itself.
Update: I've had my Aeron chair for over 6 years now. It's still going strong with no signs of problems. I do on occasion dust off the base mechanism and spray it with a bit of WD-40. Other than that, it works just like it did when I bought it.

Solid, Comfortable and Supportive Mar 09, 2009
By M. Lacewell
The Herman Miller Aeron is the chair of choice for lumbar support with the added bonus of the mesh materal releiving pressure points. I have the highly adjustable model with leather arm pads for eight years now and it feels as supportive and comfortable as the day I brought it home. It was more than I could afford at the time but I certainly could not afford by back issues so I charged it on credit credit. Best credit card purchase I ever made. It is worth the investment. I have very little trouble with my back now. I attribute that to a good bed, a good chair and good body stretch. I hope this will be of help if you are "on the fence", take the plunge. You will be glad.

Aeron Desk Chair by Herman Miller Jan 11, 2011
By E. E. Osmann
Things to know not listed with the description of this chair that I wanted to know when I was looking. The Herman Miller chair comes with many configuration options, this chair comes with the plastic arm rest pads, not the leather option which is an additional $99 and can be purchased extra - the pad are top notch regardless, but it was something I wanted to know and couldn't find on the description. The Casters are the standard version and work great - you can upgrade to Carpet and hardwood floor casters for $50 more as an additional option too.
Buy the PostureFit version of the chair even if you feel you might prefer the Lumbar support later because you can always add the lumbar piece later as a $50 option but its not so easy going the other way if you buy the lumber version of the chair. Otherwise let me say that NOTHING compares to this chair and if you are even 10% concerned about your posture, back, overall sitting health you need to dig into those pockets and buy this chair... I know, I have to sit in it every day for 8-10 hours and I've paid the price over the years in cheap un-supportive chairs - You will love it.
My experience with the chair is that within minutes of setting up the chair to my environment, comfort and starting back at my work I am already feeling the correcting effects on my body due to the posture this chair forces me correctly into while sitting at my computer all day. The PostureFit pad is super due to the plain fact it helps push your hips over to the point that you are sitting up right correctly and placing your weight in the right places.
One last thing to mention about the chair size, if you are tall, I'm 6'2", then go with the C chair as you will want the extra 1 1/2" of chair depth it provides - the chair is not that much bigger looking than the "B" version but it is 1 1/2" deeper, wider and taller. Before I purchased here I called Herman Miller directly and asked all the question I had but then asked them where I could go in my area to try out all the chairs and see for myself. Upon doing so it became immediately clear that the large chair was the best fit. If you have short(er) legs then the "B" chair is for you, oh and Amazon has the BEST price too and NO Shipping :)
