My throne v2 took 1 year for the peeling to occur. What model is your chair.

would be good if we had a good/affordable solution. when i bought the chair, i thought it would last me 10 years. i think it's only been 3 :(

Virtual chair will peel off?

What if I "bought" the chair in Nov 19, how bad will the peeling be 2 years from now?

I actually seriously considering this chair but pu leather no matter what grade for sure will peel... Lucky got this thread to warn us!
And the ommi desk also very shakey... Feel like their goods nice to see but not lasting

I got it 2 yrs back, till now no peel.
But my usage very low though.

3 years throne v1 old and no peeling!
Use everyday for a few hours, with and without aircon.
Only fault was the plastic frame as the one wheel portion broke off. But inserted some screws to fill the gaps and it still works, just have a hard time moving the chair.
Guess I am too heavy for it overtime. I brought it before bigger chairs came out.
The new chairs now all have steel wheel frame.
But the foam feels thin now. Anyway I traded in for a Titan which is worth it for an out of warranty product.

Well their service is great. For the 1st month, i complained that armrest is loose and wheels not smooth. They came within days and fixed them! even upgraded the wheels.

Couldn't agree more! I hit up the Herman miller and never looked back. One can imagine how hot secret lab chair will be in SG condition without aircon.

Furthermore, i just dont think it is that comfortable.... HM maybe more expensive but it sure last and is practicable.

How to find 2nd hand HM chairs in good condition?

Tartar Sauce 08-06-2018 02:30 PM

more of where to find display sets of HM chairs to test first :s12:

Skyline34_ 08-06-2018 02:52 PM

hard to beat HM for long term comfort - it’s certainly a tad pricey but feel the premium is well-worth it

How long you expect pu to last... More than 5 years? To be fair anything will break down if you don't take care of it. I've owned hm previously and frankly both designs (secretlab vs hm) are totally different. For example secretlab Titan has a wide seat base which is very comfortable (you can sit cross legged... You can't do that with hm aero)... So best advice is to test out both brands and decide with your butt..

So SecretLab chairs need seat cover and T-Shirt to avoid flaking? :s22:
