You only get a 6 month warranty with those cheap chinese made chairs. Go with ErgoTune. They have a 12 YEAR extended warranty. No I don't have one. Yet. But my old gaming chair is on it last set of wheels and I'll be replacing it with an ErgoTune as I've test rode most of them already. Go to their site and seen their certifications and user opinions and also read some of the reviews against the other major contenders here in Singapore. If you watch them for a while they often have good sales especially during major Singapore Festival/holidays, etc.

I don't have aircon so Secretlab is out of the question. too bloody hot and more expensive than the Ergotune as well. The ergotune has open weave mesh backing and seat so is pretty cool. I have a friend with one and I've tried it out. it also has something like 11 or 14 adjustment points and with a 12 year guarantee, it blows the competition out of the office. I'm currently sitting on a rolling furnace. An old DXRACER gaming chair that was doG knows how old when I recycled it. It has almost completely shed all of the outer PU layer and on its 3rd or 4th set of wheels, cannibalized from discarded gaming chairs here in the estate, of which three of the 5 wheels currently look like snow tires as the outer layer have disintegrated. :cool:

Once Covid hit I pushed my employer to allow us to bring our chairs home from the office. Took a few months, but they finally approved, just have to fill out a form and authorize it. Just before Covid they had replaced our chairs with new Steelcase Leap chairs — no point letting them sit in the office collecting dust. Not the perfect chair, but they are nice.

Steelcase looks like a good quality ergonomic chair..
Is secret lab ergonomic? Or solely gamers chair?

Overpriced. ErgoTune much better for much less (can buy 3 for the price of a Herman Miller).

I worked using a Secretlab gaming chair in the early pandemic, it was really bad for posture.

I swapped for a used Herman Miller Aeron chair from an online supplier (lot of offices shut and liquidated assets that time) and it helped significantly.

The kicker was a few months before the pandemic, our office upgraded all chairs and we could have taken one home for $50 but didn’t see the need then…

I'm currently using an ancient DXRacer on it's 5th set of wheels and no more pu on the seating/back (dumpster rescue about a year before I retired. I relieve other dumpster chairs for their wheels. I've researched the ErgoTune and tried out my son's so I'm pretty much sold on them and the review/comparisons are pretty darn good. Son has said he'd buy me one for Xmas. Told him to wait & see. But yeah, I find gaming chairs not very comfortable at all (but I have to admit this one I am using was not designed for someone in my weight class (more like the trim average chinese male not yet in NS). But yeah, If I could find a good used or refurbished Aeron for $150 or so I'd probably jump on it. I definitely want a webbed seat & back as I don't have aircon in my house. The one I'm using now is hot as hell!

These are not very good quality, materials are typically quite cheap and they don’t have long warranty periods to cover repairs.

My colleague has one! Says it’s much better than the old chair, though to be fair the old chair was a piece of crap. I personally use a brandless chair gifted by the company couple years back, incredibly well cushioned but quite bulky, more like a throne.
