Rule #1: Never buy a used chair because you don't know if it's been farted on.

Rule #2: See Rule #1.

Specially now with all the work from home fallout office closures. I got my standing desk for half off, brand new, thanks to this 😉

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

There are 2 kinds of people in the world. Those who fart on their desk chair, and liars.

If you're not joking, I mean, people buy used cars all the time. Just hit it with a steam or carpet cleaner and its as good as new.

Dry farts aren't really problematic when it comes to secondhand chairs. It's those farts with high levels of moisture content that you really have to watch out for.

There's a special word used in certain circles for that: wet-s.

Regardless, anyone have any experience with the Steelcase Leap?

I have the non-Logitech version of this chair, I got it after one of my legs went weird sitting in my old one too much. It is very comfortable, the seat is awesome but the arms are a bit annoying. For the money I would want them to not be so easy to 'adjust'. It is common that when I push against them to adjust my posture they pop out to their extra wide setting.

What is "Gaming" about it? Blue plastic accents instead of clear/white and black? It looks fine but how did Logitech contribute?

Steelcase leaps are pretty darn comfy. And super adjustable. If I didn't already have a fancy Steelcase Criterion+ I might have been tempted to buy one myself.

Also see my little guide I wrote up last year - How To: Save Money While Gaming On High End Stuff

When I was doing the write up I found several dozen new/nearly new Steelcase and Herman Miller chairs on craigslist for around $100 each. If you can find a business selling them off you can get basically brand new old stock units for very low cost.

Alternatively, this Steelcase at $317 shipped is a phenomenal deal for those that prefer to buy online. I've heard back from two people that bought these and both were happy with their purchases. - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TW85MYV

Very good info, much appreciated

Found a bunch of high end chairs on CL within 300 miles of me. Besides the chairs, I happen to own the modmike already; it's great

I have a Triigger 350 and absolutely love it, but not at the $800 price tag that's advertised. I got mine for $520 Black Friday 2018. I expect to see this Logitech-branded Embody on sale for around $1200 Black Friday weekend. Still more than I'm willing to spend on a chair, but would be a nice investment for streamers and professional gamers alike.

I dunno, my DXRacer chair I have been using for 5 years now is still holding up strong. It's got some shocking good build quality for being a $200 leet gamerz chair.

Yep! I just talked to someone about that very same logic today.
I never thought I would spend that much on a chair, but I'm 37 and I can't afford to rehab two weeks every two months because of a bad back.
