I remember Secretlab having a more comprehensive warranty for the 2020 PU series. I know before that it sucked for all those that had theirs peel. I went with softweave as I prefer that material and so far it's as good as the first day I've bought it.

there are still quite alot of kum lan buy secretlab when they can actually use that money and buy a proper good chair like herman miller that can last a lifetime.

nothing beats a full mesh ergonomic chair. once my my Okamura Contessa up lorry.. i will buy herman miller without any thought.

even my friends who owns secretlab chair found my surprisingly comfy than their overprice rebranded china chair.

Read the "comprehensive warranty" clearly :s22:


Doesn't cover wear and tear. peeling is wear and tear.

obviously u never own one or sat one for a long period of time, probably that's why u made such statement.

This chair can easily last u minimum 10yrs if u take care of it. compare to your secretlab? :s13:

anyway it's your wallet you decide.

Your comparison a bit weird also leh, Asus ROG phone same price as Samsung... Unless I see wrongly (did simple google search for RRP).


And to say that PU chair is Asus as to HM chairs to Samsung/Apple is also wrong in many ways :s22:


Assuming you're saying that Asus is value for money and hence PU chair is value for money, is it really value for money? $500 can buy many good chairs (fully mesh or not) too!

So I guess the best way to compare is then PU Chair VS something like the Sail chair that many people mention, which is better? Anyone tried both have anything to say?

I for one will never go back to PU Leather because it just simply doesn't make sense in SG weather.

Posted earlier in the thread, there is peel protection guarantee for 2020 series https://secretlab.sg/pages/peelprotection

As I have posted earlier too, read what "Peel Protection" means...

From their site:

Secretlab’s Peel Protection Guarantee is specifically meant to cover peeling of the PU Leather, and does not cover normal wear and tear of surfaces, including but not limited to aesthetical degradation of upholstery, stitching, and cuts, scratches or damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, water, flood, fire, or other acts of nature or external causes.

I bold for you so easier to read.

sweat from your body, is normal wear and tear... many things can be determined as normal wear and tear... it basically gives them a get out of jail free card (not wrong, many companies do this).

So the moral of the lesson is read carefully to warranties and for many other things "Lifetime guarantee". They aren't exactly what you think they are.

does not cover normal wear and tear, accident, abuse etc.

So the question really is - what does the "guarantee" cover?? :s13:

When u email Secretlab’s they will tell u what covered what not covered. In short warranty only what they say counts.

Just let whoever want buy Secretlab’s go buy.

Brought once experienced the ultimate support from local company. Will never support them again.

Can only buy their nappa leather chair. Can last very long. Or their fabric softweave chair.

Why not go for mesh?

No need to worry about peeling issue
