Iirc I went to this Luzhang office before, near Paya Lebar side.

The fellow don't allow photos and very secretive de. I remember he told me it's imported.
I did not buy in the end cause I see most of the conditions are quite jialat. Lucky man.
luzhang selling from link@amk no? the paya lebar one is howfine.com.sg I think. I went to both, the condition from the howfine seller wasn't great.

Anw, Herman Miller u buy 2nd hand the 12 year warranty dont carry over from what i found out on the internet. Not sure if that's true but if it is, the 6 months personal warranty is ok leh

Any comfortable non atas chair to recommend other than Herman Miller? For a brand new above 1K is off budget.

There's a point of time when you have money and you don't need to upgrade your rig but your rig's environment

A good gaming experience doesn't rely on just a good pc

Try Ergohuman. Mine coming to 10 yrs this Nov and still ok. I am sitting on it while typing this. The only issue is the castor wheels, couldn't last (the rubber cracked). But I have found cheap replacements from taobao so that is fine too.

6 months @ $800 is not worth it imo

i said the same thing before my late 20's. now that i'm in my early 30's i realised how important a good chair is. the truth of the fact is that you cannot replace your back. the HM aeron is so expensive i agree but damn, have you ever sat in a chair and feel like you're lying on a bed?

Sounds like you need a better bed then. My steelcase leap can't be compared to my memory foam bed.

My first Herman Miller in my household belongs to my father.

The first one I bought and subsequently for my office were from the mass order sig from Unwanted.
That dude around for damn long already and he got a clinch for atas upmarket sfuffs.

Last time there was another guy in the mass order sig but tiagong at edmw that guy Mia with the warranty liao.

I tried the HM Embody but didn't seem that comfortable (probably cause also not adjusted properly), settled for a Ergoworks Duorest 140L which they had on display set sale. Good for those who like a really firm back support.

Also have a secretlab omega which is good for general seating gaming, recline function is superb

I remember ergohum and Haworth hurt my slipped disc back quite bad when I was trying. The ergohuman Iirc is a rebrand from China oem. You could find them on alibaba for more than a decade already. I remember this because I searched their photo on Google and linked back to many sellers on alibaba.

You can probably find them at taobao at a fraction of theprice if you really appreciate it.
