It looks comfy, what's the deal with them? Worth a buy? They're pretty inexpensive.

I had something similar a few years ago.....it was ok but gets annoying if you're at your desk for more than a few minutes per day.

That doesn't sound okay. Annoying how? I don't quite understand how something can be advertised as comfortable and a workout. That does not compute.

My wife has one, has in her office for about two years and loves it. Helped her back (she is short-legged/long torso) and this helped back and neck issues with her.

I ended up bouncing up and down on it while I was sitting down....it was a little cool..kind of like one of those 80s chairs where you would kneel-sit (dunno how to otherwsie describe it). But If I wanted to just relax, and sit back it was less comfortable. I'll see if I can find the model I had. for typing it was good because you position well on the desk. mine didn't have the same back support as the one in the pics though, it was a little more austere.
