Just saw my friend's son saved up $549 and bought Secret Lab gaming chair.

Power of marketing.

I keep telling people, this "Gaming chair are not ergonomic at all." But I still see quite many people buying them.

Peer pressure, bragging rights... avoid being caught in social media sitting on a ah-peh chair... part&parcel of growing up... no surprise.

Bought the haworth fern during the lockdown promotion last year, the back rest keep sliding down (the adjustment doesn't "Locked" in place). Material wise on the back is fine but the sweat stains on the seat cannot be removed. Prolong seating lower back and butt will pain. Now i am not even sure is it my problem or the chair problem. Been thinking of buying the HM to replace the fern for some time now...
had the same problem earlier too (the back rest keep sliding down). I would suggest to check with haworth to fix it.

There are some minor issue with my fern's hydraulic pump.

Looking to buy a new chair for more WFH.

looking at Sihoo M57 which have good review at the pricepoint vs ergotune.. any comment?

It seems like sihoo M57 getting more and more expensive now at $298 and in shopee seems like there is not much choice in seller and only left with sihoo official.

look back at some earlier page that u guys manage to find 200-225 etc. are those seller all delisted?

Yar all the cheaper reseller listings for sihoo chairs disappeared from shopee and now only left the official shop. My guess maybe either the official shop ask shopee to enforce take down of those reseller listings or those resellers can no longer procure stock from suppliers.

Can take a look at these m57 "rebranded" chair sold by local sellers. Price is slightly higher but don't have to wait 3-4 weeks for shipping.

UMD: https://shopee.sg/UMD-Ergonomic-Ful...ars-Warranty-i.75985602.5907018005?position=0 Promo price sale $249 on Oct 4th.

Takeaseat: https://shopee.sg/M19-Office-Chair-★-Ergonomic-Chair-★-Mesh-Office-Chair-★-Comfortable-Support-★-Self-Setup-i.995539.4051264833?position=20

Interestingly Takeaseat's version of the chair has a listed max weight capacity of 90kg but original sihoo m57 has a max weight capacity of 150kg i think.

The prev cheap China reseller is still around, and in fact, he's doing a Flash sale now (till 10pm today) @ $210 - $7 (shop voucher) - 2000 Shopee conis (Voucher "CASHBACKBSIC75"):


Note that shipping used to take 3-4 weeks, but may take longer now with the dearth in containerships. Buy from the local UMD (above ferocity's post) @ $249 tmr if you can't wait.
Thanks man. I see why I cant find this seller. Because it is not listed under sihoo m57 name as but their own brand name.

I am not expert in chair, so I am curious are this and eg umd one that are selling as "rebranded" actually the same chair as the original sihoo m57?

As in the function and ergonomics same? Since I think we want the m57 for its comfortable design which have gd review. From the picture it does seems like exactly the same.

I did asked the Sihoo Singapore, they told me there are different gas cylinder and they are using original parts and gas lift thats why the max weight capacity is heavier than other version which not sure the authenticity of the chair.

I dont mind paying a bit more getting from the original Sihoo for authentic parts and quality as the chair will last for few years, also for safety and peace of mind.

It’s all on the site, just have to keep a lookout… do note that different membership band have different set of vouchers monthly as well…
