No joke, this is my gaming chair:
And why not this one instead? lol Looks the same and better reviewed.
if they have this gaming chair, I know everything I need to know about them…
I recommend both.
Nice looking gaming chairs like this one derive their price from their attractive design rather than their ergonomics.
Truly ergonomic chairs should have:
- High quality cushioning that distributes your weight over your entire butt.
- Lower back support.
- Head support.
Expensive, high quality chairs like this one might not look fancy, but check all the boxes listed above. Your neck, back, and butt will thank you.
As for a sit/stand adjustable desk, make sure you try before you buy. In particular, try an adjustable desk for a few hours of real work, since you might notice that it's more tiring and harder to concentrate when you are standing. As a programmer myself, I prefer to sit when I'm doing complex coding or debugging.
Regarding the cost, consider that a $1000 dollar chair can be viewed as a $1/day investment that pays for itself in ~3 years. If you are a career programmer, it makes sense to consider your physical health an asset worth more than $1/day. If you have any doubts, ask some 10 or 20 year programmer veterans if they would've invested a grand in better back support in their 20s or 30s ;)
