u post lidat, how does people want to buy from u?
I think it depends. Some people like me are less likely to mind a hard chair. After all, I am sitting on a ScanTeak chair with a thin cushion over it and have no issues.

Any recommendation for upholstery service?

The peeling off is annoying

Power, so many Secretlab owners here are within the 1% of users that experience the PU leather flaking?! Or is that closer to 50%? Is there actually any Secretlab user here that HASN'T experienced peeling yet?

I bought mine 4 years ago (Omega stealth), about 1.5 yrs in it started to peel.. I'm still using it now (bought a car seat cover to put over the whole thing, so the flakes are all contained inside still) Actually pretty surprised that all the moving parts on the chair are still working fine.

I may get a new secretlab chair again, but most definitely will avoid anything using PU leather, and will recommend everyone else to avoid PU leather like the plague. Don't listen to ******** like "it's no problem if you only use it in AC setting"

i bought my titan chair in 2016 march, took moderate care with the chair but still resulted in peeling at the lower back of the chair (where the lumbar support is), quite unsightly and i had to resort to using duct tape to prevent furthur peeling.

Peeling is 1 thing.
Lousy Support is another thing.

Premium price also another thing.

3 thing add up not worth.

Price Vs Value get HM better.

Thanks for the response but his price hiked up by so much within a year?


Yup. But take the price of delivery of $50 into equation. So consider it as $325.
You must pay a deposit of $160 upfront for him to buy the necessary stuff. You can pay the remaining amount at the time he delivers your chair back to you.
From $275 to $450
