    Customer comments about Aeron® Medium Basic Office Chair by Herman Miller®:

    This is the chair for the computer and desk in my home office. It looks good, functions well and is very comfortable.
    This chair replaces a much cheaper chair that did not last very long. Based upon the warranty alone, my cost per year will be less this time around. I'm glad I did it right this time.

      A good ergonomic chair that easily adjusts for different user heights. The mesh seating is very resilient and supportive. Construction is solid and was easy to assemble when delivered in a box. Arm height is good for keeping wrists at proper height from keyboard and mouse.

        Back is wide enough for my broad shoulders (not a jock, just wide shoulders), other chairs feel constrictive.

        Not up to HM standards

        By Sitting Short

        from Houston, Texas

        Pros

          Cons

          • Difficult to adjust
          • Expensive
          • Lacks adjustability
          • Uncomfortable

          Best Uses

            Customer comments about Aeron® Medium Basic Office Chair by Herman Miller®:

            The fabric is uncomfortable--it sticks to bare skin. The chair is too big--it keeps bumping into the desk and drawers. I miss the plain, smaller, old-fashioned, leather office chairs that lasted so well. Keep looking.

                    This is by far the best office chair I have ever owned. It's comfortable and durable and will last you a lifetime. The breathable fabric won me over from day one.

                    NOT adjustable; Classic and Posture are!

                    By Critique

                    from New York, NY

                    Customer comments about Aeron® Medium Basic Office Chair by Herman Miller®:

                    This model is NOT adjustable. I am so glad I bothered to go to the store today to try it out. Repeat: the armrests are NOT adjustable, and neither is there a back tilt limiter. Still, it is a pretty comfortable chair. Since I am not standard size, however, I am going to go for the adjustable models.

                        This chair is so uncomfortable. That's all I can say about it. I hated having to sit in it at work, and for the love of God, I'd have taken a $60 chair from Staples and the rest of the money my company spent on the chair in hundred dollar bills.
