Must be having a hard time struggling to survive now. Don't know they can still be around 12 years later or not. :(

I wouldn't worry about them, they mostly get their sales bulk from atas officers around our region. Consumer sales are like just a side thing for them.

The point is that they were so fixated on where the chairs were made in, USA vs China, when the fact is that the stocks from the Shopee seller are also from China. Which is the reason why he's out of stock for the mineral model, as per Xtra. And also the ETA for his pre orders for the other colours are also the same as Xtra. The Shopee seller claims his chairs are MADE IN USA, and I have been emphasising on his sketchiness, and warning our fellow forum friends from getting shortchanged. Instead of being appreciated, all I got was flak.

Agreed, as long as we can still see lights in the office towers around CBD, Xtra is safe and sound. Some offices are not just simple offices, and can never be replace with WFH. Eg. Investment bank offices have plenty of specialised trading terminals that cannot be brought home.

I'm in an investment bank. It was believed that it cannot be done.After this covid, everyone knows it can be done now.

Xtra buyers can be found in S&P500.
Audiosg buyers are in Hwz.

Up to one whether the premium is worth it..
My 2c, take the costs savings and spread it across warranty period then factor in intangibles lo.

Thank you but this is where I am getting confused now...



so if we are getting Graphite, should we be expecting the legs as hard plastics or metal?

Can help with this please? I'm no chair expert. I really don't care where it is made from. I just want it to be the product from the manufacturer will do

i thought i said graphite is plastic, unless for polished, and carbon is metal for both the carbon colour and polished. Graphite is cheaper than carbon, because of the plastic feet, which may not be as durable for people that weighs close to the max weight limit. i have no idea what colour the other guy bought, so i have no idea whether his is plastic or metal. But i personally wouldnt recommend getting the plastic model.

In other words, graphite is hard plastic. Right?
