I would have thought something that many claims to be the longest lasting chairs with exceptional values even for 2nd hand (non warranry) shouldn't have much problem.

With the $500 ++ discount, u probably be getting a bang for the buck after the 9th year anyway.

I mean even if u did buy from Xtra, everyone loves warranty. But I wouldn't wish to be utilizing warranty every so often if that happens then its bad quality.

Lets be honest, if Xtra was selling both USA and PRC versions at the exact same price, are you gonna yolo say they are the same quality same qc and you would be indifferent to both. I doubt.

As far as im concerned, xtra probably has a way too high markup for a prc made Aeron considering corporate discounts are at 1.7k on par with shopee prices. On Taobao, where they sell both PRC Aerons and USA Aerons, the USA ones are sold at higher prices than PRC made.

As consumers, we should band together and make Xtra realise they should offer better discounts. Isn't it?

Like i said, to each his own. I have claimed seat pan, posturefit, and pneumatic cylinder for mine with Xtra in the 12 yrs ive owned my classic. Just saying, 12 yrs is a long time for any item, especially one where you use everyday, for almost the majority of the day. A simple chair can probably last a long time, a wooden chair can even last longer than a lifetime. Keep in mind the Aeron is a full featured mechanical chair with many moving parts.

Also would just like to add, Xtra is selling Aerons ASSEMBLED in China now only because the supply chain is affected in the US. If the Shopee seller says he is getting USA stocks now, he must have a secret unlimited stash of Aerons in his basement or something lol. For those who got from him recently, and it came without manufacturing labels underneath the seat, id be suspicious.

Afaik, shopee sellee is having aerons from JAN 2020 batch.

Also, doesn't hurt to check herman miller website, production plant isn't closed in the US infact they have part of production changed to making PPEs and masks etc, there are advisories on shipping delays and that is about it.

PRC factories were closed probably for at least 1 to 2 months as well anyway resulting in Xtra lack of chairs now I guess? Their website is showing late june and early July.

More importantly, if u were so confident of PRC QC why now the change of focus to "assembly in PRC". I am quite sure if you tried to google, HM's only factory in dongguan,china fully produces the aeron chairs. Inclusive of the mesh seating if that makes u happy. :)

If you did already buy from Xtra, I can understand the defending of your purchase in the means of warranty, otherwise doesn't make sense for anyone who haven't bought from Xtra to at least compare the price of Aerons sold in Xtra - be it respective to PI, PRC taobao or even HM USA RSP.
