I've been using this, whatever it is, for about 7 years.

The cushion is completely gone and I have to put blankets on top of it so it doesn't hurt as much. I really loved it when it was new; you could adjust the arm rest height, the back angle, the entire chair angle, the chair height, etc. The adjustments came in handy for when I wanted to use it for piano, browsing, or gaming.
But I can't take the soreness any longer. Can anybody recommend a great chair for $250 or less? I googled for best computer chairs and the top 5 that I found were in the $800-1200 range, which is out of the question.

Doesn't look like it has many adjustments... I'll have to look into it. Thanks.

Get one that's got a nice high back, don't forget that support for your shoulders is important.

I went to staples and tried all of their chairs. Literally hated all of them and none of them had as many adjustments as my current chair, so I'm going to attempt to reupholster it with new cushion. If that fails, I'll just settle for one they had that was "OK".
