After a point you get what is fancy and "cool". This is one of those topics that is highly personal. To put it simply, your butt is not the same size, shape as mine, nor is your back or posture. The chairs I like have been more contoured like sports car seats, firmer but springy. Also several mesh back chairs are very comfy. I'm talking about work equipment here that I did not have to pay for, I'm sure those chairs are in the couple of hundred + dollar range. I have not had many cheap chairs that I have liked at home, tend to slide around a bit much, especially in the leather cheaper ones.
