  • Tips for Buying a Computer Chair?

    Posted by Chris Waycaster on March 2, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    I’ve never purchased a new computer chair for myself, always used a free one or the one my girlfriend got me on Father’s day last year.

    The problem is that the chair is for a large person and I have a rather average frame. The chair is way to big for me.

    I earn my living by editing videos, but after about 45 minutes my back and arm starts to hurt due to the awkward position I have to be in to use it.

    3 hours in I find myself doing shots of whiskey to take the edge off…it’s a nice perk of working from home but I’m ready to invest in a better chair.

    I’m going to Office Depot to sit in some chairs and see how they feel, are there any tips or best practices from other editors that I should be looking for?

    I’ve read a lot on google but most of the articles are fluff and affiliate sales pages, so I figure if I can get one solid tip from this community I’d be infinitely wiser in selecting a chair.

    Thanks in advance,
    -Chris

    Almost always the most expensive one has better materials and is better.
