I'm not sure I've ever seen a discussion on this topic here in the lounge. We're all developers here, so this is probably the best group I can think of to ask:

What's a great developer chair? Sitting in a chair facing a bunch of monitors for 8, 12 or 14 hours a day is not atypical for me.

I thought I had found a good one for a great price from Staples a few years back, but the cushion got flattened ever so gradually over time that I never noticed until my back started hurting--permanently--and realized I was sitting on what felt like a piece of plywood. I got rid of it, but don't feel like my back's ever fully recuperated from that.

Other than the standard "get a standing desk" or "move around every X minutes" advice, could I get some actual chair recommendations? At this point in my career I'm thinking money's no object, so while I could probably justify spending thousands for whatever-that-brand-was, I'd like to hear some first-hand (first-back? first-butt?) opinions from those who have used those expensive (and lesser) chairs.
