I’ve used the chair for 2 days now and still like it but I find the reclining function a little annoying because you can’t stop it at a certain point, it’s all or nothing. I also found that the chair prevents me from slouching or sitting a bad posture which I both like and dislike very much because I’m starting to realize how much I depended on that crappy posture to be truly comfortable.
It was time for a new chair in the Nerd Cave so I stopped by Costco Wholesale and noticed this Bayside Furnishings Metro Mesh Chair Model # CORC-6 computer chair for $100 USD. It’s a full mesh chair similar to a Herman Miller Aeron Chair for a fraction of the price. It’s not as configurable as a Aeron but it’s very sturdy even with my 280lb ass on it and it’s very quite and move smooth (and reclines smooth). The chair has a maximum weight of 300lb but I can tell that is a very low estimate since I can bounce up and down on it and it’s very sturdy.
The chair was very easy to assemble but if you watch the video closely you will see I assemble it wrong the first time and have to reassemble it again (typical Barnacules move). I also put a funny sound bite in the video also, comment if you hear it! (Thanks VegasJaime for the sound bite!). So far I am loving the chair and I’m sitting in it right now while I do this write up on the video while it uploads!
The thing I like the most about this chair is the support it gives you on the sides when you sit back into it and the lumbar support. This is going to solve my back pain issues and also being able to move the arm rests back while still having the chair keep you upright is a huge plus!
The chair has a basic control to move up and down and lock the reclining function and that is it, no tilt adjustment or back adjustment. You can change the tension to make reclining easier or harder but that is about it. And the great thing about Costco is if I find out I don’t like the chair after using it for a few weeks, months or even years I can just take it back and get a full refund (god I love Costco!).

As a software developer I spend a lot of time sitting so having a good chair is the difference between being miserable and being content and happy. And let me tell you that it’s very hard to write good code when you’re in pain 😛
