5.0 out of 5 stars An Investment for Your Back and Spine, November 17, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aeron Chair by Herman Miller - Highly Adjustable Graphite Frame - with PostureFit - Carbon Classic (Large) (Tools & Home Improvement)
The chair is amazing and helps alleviate a lot of back pain caused from desk work. Herman Miller is definitely the best ergonomic designer and manufacturer of chairs.

There is no difference between this chair and the aluminum one other than materials for aesthetic appeal. They function the EXACT same way but you pay more for "metal" versus graphite. The better value is this one, the graphite classic.

A plus is this company VitalityWeb (aka BACKSTORE from Amazon). Shipped fast, shipped in perfect condition, brand new... These chairs are NOT supposed to come pre-assembled -- if you buy one that does, then it is a USED chair or a floor model. If it is NOT assembled, double-check and look for a paper tag that should be on the seat height lever. It will be impossible to remove this paper tag without RIPPING it (and no way to put it on unless you were the one building it prior to installing the lever). If there is no Herman Miller paper/tag attached, it is USED.

They have more selection than DWR (Design Within Reach, a very high-end designer store) and Great Outdoors combined. NO TAX, FREE SHIPPING, NO HASSLE, GREAT PRICE.

Just make sure you know your size and type of chair you want before you buy. Simply visit a DWR or Great Outdoors store and sample these chairs there. Then buy them from Amazon without the hassle of carrying the large box yourself, paying for taxes, dealing with a salesrep, or getting a floor model.

Slight correction to this review: the A-size (small-size) chair comes pre-assembled, the B- and C-size (medium- and large-size, respectively) chairs do not come pre-assembled. The cardboard box container for the A-size chair is significantly larger than the boxes for the other two sizes.
