Over a year later and still loving this chair! My husband now spends more time in it (I've graciously acquiesced my throne habitation), and he too loves it. Again, not many bells and whistles, but truly a great chair. I still average roughly 4-5 hours a day in it (dividing time between home and work office), with an occasional 8-hour day. Continues to be comfortable and everything works as if we'd just gotten it.
First of all, the chair is amazingly comfortable. Before purchasing, I went to a Room and Board furniture store to make sure it didn't disappoint, and it sure didn't. In fact, I personally felt it was more comfortable and to my liking than the HM Aeron and Embody, and several other HumanScale chairs they had at the store that cost more than 2x the Sayl. So I bought it used. I'm a PhD student, so I spend 20-30 hours a week at my desk. I get up frequently to go to class or to work in a lab, so I can't really comment on 40+ hours/ week in the chair, and 8-10 hours/day, but I feel like it would be comfortable for all of that time.
Second, it's beautiful. The chair I bought is white with grey back and a teal-ish seat. All standard, no extra features. It looks great, I'm excited to see it every day when I get in to work. Additionally, the materials are great. Contrary to other saying the back part feels like cheap plastic, I think it feels incredibly high quality. Sure, it's not a high-back leather chair, but I don't want that anyways. It stretches and moves with you, conforms to you, and feels plenty durable. It's super cool too, I don't get a sweaty back ever.
Finally, I want to address the SQUEAK issue I've heard a lot of others complain about. It's real. It squeaks like mad, and it's annoying. Very annoying. Especially when it's humid. Being an engineer, I thought I could just spray some light lubricant up in the inner workings and get rid of it but that didn't work. So I called Herman Miller up.Read more ›
The construction of the chair is excellent. It doesn't squeak or moan, small parts don't fall off, and it has a 12 year warranty. Herman Miller products are used at many corporations, universities, and government agencies because of their reliability - overall construction is a 10/10. I especially like the material used for the armrests, which is soft but very sturdy - and of course the material in the chair's famous suspension back.
Overall, the chair is quite comfortable for long periods of use. It has a nice, controlled recline and plenty of seat padding. The seat is not made of suspension material, and I think that was a good decision, as the harder suspension material only really works as back support. The narrow back allows you to stretch your shoulders regularly. And indeed, the seat back is the real revelation: it conforms perfectly to your back, while still keeping you cool and comfortable. I didn't get the adjustable armrests, and I don't regret it - the standard height is perfect for me (I'm 5'8"), and I have not experienced any carpal tunnel thus far. Comfort is about a 9/10, though I doubt any office chair could be a 10/10 (I haven't tried the Embody or Steelcase's top of the line chair, however).Read more ›
