Who needs 1.8k Herman MillerFirst and foremost my review is not a slight or negative on Herman Miller they make an excellent product. Our office purchased the Herman Miller chairs awhile back and I was amazed at the comfort . However, I do not have my office’s spending budget. For me the Hon office Chair provides the same comfort and modern yet simple design without the height cost. This is a great ergo, office chair ! I work from home and its fantastic to sit in and work. I’m sitting in it now as I write this review. Best feature I like about it is the pivoting seat cushion the moves forward. The Hon chair has is all the bells and whistles without the cost. By far a must buy if you need a ergo office chair (P.S. if you by this chair you have to also purchase the black office chairs wheels they’re like rollerblade wheels that glade across the surfaces; especially hard floors)

Not sure about the seat.I would pass on this.The seat has a forward and backward movement depending on your leg length, when extended all the way, it leaves a large gap between and the seat and back peice that is uncomfortable for sitting after awhile, I would say if your under 5’8, this seat will be fine.

Comfy seat and easy to assemble, but a few drawbacks.The chair is very easy for one person to assemble, using the box it comes in as a support. However, after trying multiple settings, the back is not very supportive even when at the highest tension. The arm rests are so far back and low that they are useless, and I’m someone who uses arm rests a lot while sitting. The material of the arm rests is also so slick your arm slides right off the side. The seat padding feels great and I like having the ability to adjust the seat forward and backward. Anyone shorter than 5’6″ might not be able to set their feet flat on the ground comfortably, so it’s designed for above average height. For a taller than 5’6″ person who doesn’t use armrests, this chair would be good. I would definitely still buy HON products in the future.

Just opened it – chair looks greatJust opened the chair and assembled it. It looks and feels great to sit on. The assembly was very easy when following the video on amazon.One confusing thing was the chair came with paper instructions attached which did not exactly match the model I purchased and there were a couple of steps the directions suggested which were not applicable to the model I have.
Good product, decent value, terrible packagingJust like my momma always said I’m not good at many things, but one thing I am good at is sitting. In fact, I’m a bit of an expert in the subject and humbly consider myself something of a chair connoisseur. A seat savant. A bench boss.So let me be your sedentary stentor of seated stuff and share with you my thoughts on this functional, attractive, and moderately priced chair from HON.PROS:+ Stretchy backrest provides support that conforms to your back and breathes well to help you avoid nasty back sweat.+ Adjustable lumbar support gives some added structure for your lower back (could be better – see below).+ Foam seat bottom is comfortable even for those of us not gifted in the posterior area (I did add an extra memory foam cushion for some added comfort).+ Great adjustability across the board (seat height, back angle, recline tension that can be locked into position, seat bottom rotates in proportion to the back angle, armrest height (I added foam covers to cushion my elbows since I actually use the armrests), and lumbar support position (limited adjustment and made from hard plastic somewhat contoured like your lower back)).+ Casters roll easily with no friction making it easy to move around. You may want to consider a rug or mat to protect hard flooring or change the casters out to urethane rollerblade wheels (not included).+ Materials and design are attractive with different colors to suit your office environment (home or work). Easy to clean and should age relatively well, but do be careful with sharp objects around the mesh seatback material. Time will tell if the stretchy mesh will lose its springiness or if the foam seat cushion will flatten over time.CONS:- A bit pricey (but much cheaper than the chair designs that HON so blatantly borrows from).- Horrible packaging (loose pieces in the box can damage the delicate mesh seat back or scratch the finish on the plastic pieces).- Weak lumbar support (I added a foam lumbar cushion in between the lumbar support and the mesh back for added support with some cushion).- Plastic legs have been known to snap according to other online reviews. Be mindful of the weight limit. I haven’t had any issues myself.- Questionable quality control (the first chair I received had a portion of the mesh on the seat back damaged with no visible damage to the plastic in which the seat back was enclosed. To me, this indicated that the damage was likely there when the chair was packaged. I couldn’t get a replacement back sent to me so had to send the original one back and have a new one shipped to me. This was at no additional cost to me, but did take another week.).If you’re looking for a smart alternative to the Herman Miller Aeron chair that won’t require you to get a second mortgage on your house then definitely give the HON Ignition 2.0 a look. There are cheaper options out there, but for me, this chair struck a good balance between design, material quality, and price to support my broken back and bony derriere. With Amazon’s return policy you’ll have an opportunity to try out the fit and feel for yourself. Just make sure you check the quality of the parts before you spend time assembling the chair.
Great so far – early impressionsUPDATED —I’ll leave my original review below. After first impressions, the chair quickly started to squeak and it was so incessant that I got some WD-40. That helped for about two minutes and then it was back to squeaking with the slightest. In addition to the annoyance, I never could get really comfortable. It feels kind of stiff, even with the knobs fully “open” for easy reclining.My first impression was around how sturdy it was, and seemed to be a positive up front, but soon transformed to “stiff” as my main impression.I would return it if I could, but it’s just to large to carry down to a UPS and I don’t have the box so I assume there’s no option to do that anyway :/I can’t say how much of this is my experience or all chairs. I am just very disappointed at how it never really seems to break in.——- original review:I just put this chair together an hour ago. I was a little afraid of how large it would be, giving the popular review from the 6′ man who said the chair was really big for him.First off – assembly was easy! Only had three screws :)Rolling is extremely smooth! Maybe this is just what any new set of wheels feels like and my chair was old, but this is definitely nice to slide around in.The back is pretty nice. When the product describes itself as having “lumbar support” It’s hard to describe but I guess it’s like a difference between a back that is cushy and gives-in, versus a region that remains firm; as opposed to a lumbar you’d find in a car or recliner that pushes into your back.The seat is really nice and I appreciate this fabric over the “fake leather” stuff my old chair is currently flaking all of the floor. I’d describe the cushion as medium-firm, in a good way. It feels soft when I’m sitting but I can tell that it’s substantial and therefore holds up over the years (fingers crossed).Back to my original fear! The SIZE. This chair is totally average-sized. I mean that the seat adjusts to the same range I’ve had on almost all office chairs at various jobs (and the old chair I had at home). I’m 5’10” and my feet rest evenly on the floor while the chair is at its tallest position. I like to give it one quick pull of the lever so my heels have some weight on them and I’d say that’s maybe an inch lower from maximum. At the very lowest setting it feels like my hip is slightly lower than my knees (maybe by a couple inches).All I’m saying is that the size of this chair the “Ignition 2.0 Mid-Back[…]” is perfectly normal if you’ve ever had a desk job, this will be about that size. In terms of the height of the back, it fully supports my shoulders but it stops just at my neck.Obviously there are dimensions and specs for the chair on here but I was so thrown off by a “6-ft 200-lb” reviewer thinking that this chair was too big for him. It felt worth describing my experience.One final point is that I have an entirely positive experience with the chair so far, but it’s just a regular chair so I’ll hold back on 5-stars until I feel like it’s something above all the rest. I think it’s good value for the price but I can’t be objective there because I’m going to expense this purchase to my employer haha

Solid Chair; Lumbar support is legit but admittedly low-techThis is a solid chair–no complaints. This being said, this particular chair is clearly overhyped. The vaunted “lumbar support” is literally just a rigid piece of plastic that presses up against your back right above your hip bone. It does indeed seem to give some pleasant back support, but this is hardly high-tech. If you’re working from home, I’d say anything less than this chair is probably a bad idea. Nothing extraordinary, just a solid chair.

Chair Base Scratches my legs constantlyI’ve had this chair for almost 4 years now, and I’m generally happy with the purchase. It’s comfortable and has some basic but nice lumbar adjustments that make it possible to fit your body.Now for the negatives, The arms aren’t that solid feeling and can shake when applying pressure. I’m 5’8 and this chair surprisingly doesn’t go low enough to provide proper ergonomics for my legs. It only needs to go down a couple more inches but it is what it is.My biggest complaint is the “Chair Base”. The legs that connect the wheels to the bottom of the chair are horrible. It scratches my ankle at least once a week. This might sound weird but its a seriously annoying. The top of the base is rounded but the bottom is a sharp edge.Overall, this chair is decent. I paid $280 for this and I think around there is where the price belongs. It’s currently on sale for $400 and is usually $637 according to the listing now. This is way too much for this chair. Ignoring my problems with it, this chair is not worth $400 quality-wise.For $400 or $637, I would not recommend this chair. You can buy a slightly used or sometimes even brand new Herman miller on craigslist or offer up for this price.
Solid Chair.I’m a big dude and this chair is solid. Feels good when you sit, no flex. It improves my posture and rolls nicely.
Comfortable and reasonably affordable office chairI’ve had this chair for 3 months now and I really enjoy it. I sit on the chair 75% of the time five days a week at work. The cushion is perfect and still feels great. The arm rests are comfortable and I enjoy the smooth texture of the hand rests. I adjusted the chair once to my liking and havent changed anything since. This chair is a good value.
