Wow, I like the coloring of it.

What's the difference between this one and a regular embody?

Absolutely nothing except for the colorway and the "G" logos.

Other than the colour and tags, just a little bit of foam on the seat and middle back (spine) area.

Not worth the extra $800+ that I paid for my Embody IMHO


Other note: RFD group buy for HM is currently over, but looks like someone is organizing one for the Leap V2 I posted earlier and there's already 5+ people for the $600+tax price

fhhhh wish I could join in on that group buy but don't have the money for it right now.

Hopefully something similar for the HM will come back at some point

I went with secretlab titan chair. Been one of the best chairs I have ever purchased. I work from home and game from that chair so it gets about 9 hours of day usage.

What are your thoughts on kneeling chairs?

They don't have any upper back/neck support, so you can't really lean back like you would a normal chair. However, it looks like it can really offload the hips so you don't put pressure on your ass all the time.

We have a couple of the kneeling chairs in the office. Interested people will try it for a day or 2, and then go back to their regular chairs. The usual complaint is that it hurts their knees.

Interesting. It might still be worth it to be able to switch back and forth from it and a regular chair. Hips get sore? Switch to kneeling chair. Knees get sore? Switch to regular.

WFH; looking to invest on a standing desk.
Costco had some solid deals (long time ago)
Ikea (higher end ones were good)
any other suggestions? Not looking for amazon to only buying the lift and desk separately.

PrimeCables has a few standing desk options that include the top piece (they also have just the leg mechanism which you aren't looking for).

I bought a desk from flexispot with duel monitors and ending up buying the Idasen tabletop from Ikea.

Flexispot EQ3

I really like this desk as it is duel motor and is quite quiet. I needed something with duel motors as I have two 30" monitors and I worry a single motor won't be powerful enough if I wanted to get a bigger, solid wood tabletop. The Idasen I got was 140" x 75", which was plenty for now. I did get a mounting plate on my desk before I did a triple monitor mount (just in case the ikea honeycomb tabletop couldn't support the mount), the only thing I'm missing right now is a server cable raceway big enough for me to have all the cables hidden for my setup. I think the total setup for the mount, desk and tabletop was about $720 all together and I'm pretty damn happy about it.

desk setup

Also for chairs, I'm eyeing the Staples Hyken. From what I've read that it does perform similarly to the Aeron if you're a smaller lighter guy. Alternatively, if you're a bigger guy, the Secret Labs Titan is pretty good. Don't get the Omega chair. It doesn't have good back support and the seat has that stupid race car bucket that really keeps you from moving much. The Titan is wider and less like a bucket seat so you can move a bit more and actually had back support.

I bought mine from Effydesk which is local. They have the home office and professional version. I found the home office one too wobbly when raised up at 42.5" and swapped for the pro version which has worked well. The table top is kinda ugly (I got the white oak) but the general build quality is just fine for a home desk.

I found a 15% off discount code on CL for them and was able to get the desk in 2 business days.

The Ikea ones are fairly trashy - the motors are really weak and tend to fail early. If you don't plan on going up and down much then that might be fine.
