Errr why not?

Cheap construction, subpar adjustments, cheap fabric, rough casters, etc. If you would think a Markus would serve you better than a Secretlab, you're not wrong, but you're not exactly right either.

It will come in the form of your chair peeling. It will Snow white and black flakes all over your room. For $500, it’s advertised as the ‘crème de la crème’ of chairs. When buying it, I figured to pay a bit more for a quality one that would last me.

This ‘Premium quality’, ‘durable’, made with ‘High quality core materials’ chair lasted me 15 months before it started to peel simultaneously in multiple places including the sides. Usage may Varys, but It’s probably not just a super abrasive butt mistreating the chair. It hasn’t seen direct sunlight, just regular ol’ Singapore humidity, like every other chair for home use.

Support offered to replace the seat and backrest leather for $150, about 30% of the chair itself. Plus a very generous complimentary bottle of ‘premium’ leather cleaner. $150 for another brief 15 months before my chair turns Greyscale and my room Castle Black? Not today.

It’s not all doom and gloom. It’s a comfortable chair for sure, and the mechanisms have held up well. It’s just that if you’re expecting it to last you for years to come, I implore you - don’t get Littlefingered.

I've seen this happneing to chairs of not just secret labs, but other brands as well

Its called WEAR AND TEAR

If i want to pay >$500 for a director style chair, i'll just go for full leather
Else there are plenty of cheap chairs. Ikea has long guarantees but have to bring the chair in after you get an RA number

If Upholstery peeling is a concern, do get a chair from a brand / distro with a strong warranty offering.

It's crucial for manufacturers to use more than one approved vendor. Supplier A got poor material quality issues, Supplier B got no issues. This might be the scenario.

Grease it lah. Oil dripping in your study room not good lah.
Squeaking sound means misalignment, uneven wear due to unbalanced loads being applied, rubbing of metallic parts, worn out bearings etc.

Really :s13::s13::s13: at all the marketing gimmick gaming chair. Chances of it increasing FPS higher than increasing comfort.
