30STAYHOME20

Hi OzBargain,

With the move towards working from home in these unusual times, I've been looking for a new office chair for myself. I noticed that Secret Lab has a "Working From Home Sale" that brings the 2020 TITAN (PU leather) down from $700 to $569 with free shipping. The fabric edition comes down to $619.

Not sure if I'll pull the trigger myself, but thought some other OzBargainers would be interested.

Stay safe everybody.

    Are these rated as office chairs? Most of the gaming chairs I have seen are rated at less than a half a full day sitting.

    Own one and they are rock hard, even after having the base replaced. Also if you sit back in the chair you can feel a metal support beam running horizontally across your butt. Actually selling it now and going back to my Herman Miller…

      What was wrong with your Herman Miller?

      Yea at this price it's far better to pick up a used herman miller.

    •  

      Must say, I agree with you on the chair being very firm, but I can't feel any supports on mine, not even if I try.

    •  

      Hey Pulseless. I'm interested in buying yours. PM me?

    •  

      Good comment, but different people have different needs.

      Sure it doesn't feel comfortable to you, but I've had an original one since 2013 and it's been super comfortable and looks as new.

      What I'm saying is, all you can do is look at the reviews pick one up and test it.

    •  

      What's your weight?.. I'm a bit over 70kg and have the omega chair.

      Yes it's firm but I'm nowhere near sitting on any metal bars.

    is PU leather even going to last a year?

    •  

      You are protected by a warranty for 3 years I think. I just bought this, arrived last week.

      It is a big chair and it is pretty hard. Depending on your size, both width and height, you need to be pretty big to fill the chair. I'm 6ft but pretty lean and I wish I had gone for the Omega instead. I bought the Titan for the lumbar support, but I don't think that was work the extra money.

        even it if lasts 3 years it is still $200/year for a chair

        •  

          You make an assumption that it lasts ONLY 3 years. My previous 'racer' was also PU and is still going strong. The sponge is the only that has failed and it is anything but premium. These are premium chairs so I would expect them to last significantly longer. You also get a further 2-year extension for taking a photo of yourself in the chair and posting it online.

          •  

            @jaymzrsa: You're right that it will likely last longer than 3 years, but there's no guarantee. Considering that most chairs at this price point come with a longer warranty, the warranty is certainly something to consider. My Raynor IOO was cheaper, and has a 10 year warranty. You can get chairs with a 15 year warranty from officeworks for $300.

      PU leather on chairs lasts about 2-3 years.

    •  

      I've got an OG one from 2013 - no issues with the PU. Looks like new.

    •  

      Had mine for 2 years now, abused by myself and my children. Great chair! Because it is firmer and different in terms of ergonomic support, it won't feel as comfortable as other mesh chairs at the start. But after adjusting for a few days, it becomes very comfortable and I even fall asleep in the chair with only a slight recline!

      Being an office chair, I tax deduct it for my home office too!

    wheres the bargain?

    This brand is the most over priced stuff on the market with their fake RRP's dreaming if you think it was $699 originally

      Hey, I bought a Herman Miller Mirra (2nd hand) last week from Sustainable Office Solutions last week. They had quite a few in stock when I went there…

  •  

    I'm looking at a chair but seems there's some bad reviews on this one. I came across the Anda Seat AD12XL Dark Knight.. Anyone here who owns that?

    • +1 vote

      Just bought the Anda Seat AD12XL-03 (not sure what the changes are between the 02 & 03)

      https://cplonline.com.au/anda-seat-ad12xl-03-be-pv-extra-lar...

      less than a week in…pretty good so far. I'm 60kg and 175cm so defs small for a big ass chair like this but has enough space for me to cross my legs.

      seat is firm but supportive. I found the head pillow to be too thick personally and have done fine without it.

      height adjustment doesn't have as much travel as I expected but it's workable.

      worth 500? idk but work payed for half so I'm satisfied.

      PM if you need more info

    I have been recently looking at getting an office chair to use for work and gaming too. I tried some and did some research and settled on the Buro metro 2. It is one of the comfiest chairs I’ve ever sat on and provides amazing support, the mesh back is super breathable so extended sessions are no worries.
    I’ve had it for a couple weeks now and have no complaints at all, they’re made in New Zealand and come with a 10 year warranty and come with all the ergonomic adjustments you could want. I can’t recommend them enough. Here’s one that’s on sale at the moment: https://premierofficefurniture.com.au/products/buro-metro-ii...

      Thanks for the recommendation mate… i have spent weeks weighing up options, i will give this one a look over

    • +2 votes

      I've had my Metro 2 for a while, how are you finding lower lumbar support?

      Feels like all the new chairs have it protruding out more so it feels like there's more support whereas the Metro's back is too far back to get any support.

      •  

        Did you get the high back version? I haven’t found the lumbar support to be lacking but obviously that comes down to personal opinion. The last thing you want to do is buy an extra lumbar support pillow after buying an ergonomic chair!

        •  

          Ahh I have the older one Buro Metro elite TASK chair (my bad)

          The high back ones look way better…

          Given I've got the aluminium base and arm rests I might see if it's possible to just replace the back.

    •  

      Got my buro for about 250 several years back but I wouldn't recommend it solely because of the loud squeaks it makes every time you move. I've also read a few other users with the same issue so I've concluded it's quite common.

    I have a fabric 2020 Titan and love it, actually tried other chairs including the Herman Miller and Ergo Humans. From all the reviews I've read and my experience so far, it does last and is very good quality. My partner just ordered a PU Leather 2020 Titan. I wanted the fabric as it breathes a bit better.

  •  

    For this sort of money you're vastly better off with a proper office chair. They only people who should use these are sponsored gamers.

  •  

    Do you reckon we could stack the $30 off with the $25 referral discount too?

    If so, anyone recently bought one and got the referral code?

    I have the Secret Lab Omega chair which I bought I few years ago. I personally find it comfortable to sit on and gives me good support considering I have chronic back issues. Each to their own though. Unfortunately you can't try these chairs out in a physical store so it's a bit of a gamble when spending that much.

    i've got the omega fabric. it is very comfortable to me, i can sit 10 plus hours comfortably. neck pillow and lumbar support are the key. get one and you will not regret. no money can buy your health.

    •  

      Do you reckon the lumbar pillow would be better than the inbuilt lumbar support of the Titan?

  • -1 vote

    Can someone loan me $19, Scomo will pay for the rest of it.

    Bought the Omega on May 2016 and the Titan in March 2017. Not sure what the differences are with the new 2020 Titan but my GF is using the Omega daily, and I'm using the Titan daily. Most of the damage for me is from my cats clawing into the back (the flippin asshats). The seats "leather" is still intact and just starting to now show signs of wear where the back of my knees would sit (leather coming loose and separating from the seat). My friend on the other hand bought his titan a year or 2 after me and his seat is completely void of any leather on his seat. Overall I like the ability to customise everything (4d arm rests etc) and the adjustment increments are small for everything. Until I bought these I was going through a 200$ish chair every 1.5 to 2 years. No problems with mine yet, but that's my personal experience.

    Anyone knows decent ergonomic chair with friendlier budget?

  • +1 vote

    This chair made my back pain worse than it already was so I had to sell it. I think one of the problems is that the back is completely flat and lacks any contour where most ergonomically designed chairs have passive support (in the form of a contoured back) to help your spine maintain its shape. Another issue is the "lumbar support" that can't be vertically adjusted, so depending on your body it may sit in the wrong area of your back and just "jut in" rather than provide support. I was really confused when a lot of reviews said it was great for their back and I just couldn't agree with them. My thoughts are that while this chair may suit a lot of people just fine, given the general design and lack of adjustability there's simply no guarantee.

    I had a really good experience with my last HM Mirra which has been going strong for 8 years and I only stopped using at home because I needed to move it to my work office. I was going to go for another Mirra but the price was a good $250 higher than the last one I bought which made me reluctant. I ended up springing for a Steelcase Gesture which I'm really liking, and it worked out cheaper than the Mirra plus has a lifetime warranty.

    One chair I wouldn't go past is actually the HM Sayl - It's a little closer to the Titan in price but provides very good passive support in my opinion (which is what it was designed specifically to do). They're also one of the easier HM chairs to get your hands on and stock levels are generally pretty high. Otherwise a lot of people suggest second hand HM chairs which is also a good idea. I never had any luck because there isn't a big second hand market in SA but I'm sure it'd be better interstate. Just douse with disinfectant before use :P

    I just built my Omega 2020 Batman edition yesterday. As for comfortable at first feel it is comfortable and I haven't used it enough to state otherwise.

    But the installation is fairly simple if this helps anyone. Was prob less than 30 minutes including unboxing and carefully doing instructions.

    On a side note they are having issues with Australian delivery.

    Australia - Expect delays in handling
    
    •  

      I'm not too bad with building things but I thought the instructions and accompanying pictures not too clear.

      Also connecting the base to the back took me about 10 minutes to line up the screw holes?

      •  

        Oh yes I kind of agree with pictures not being clear but the text on those pictures was quite simple.

        The back base is much easier with 2 people but I struggled like you.

    May 22nd delivery?!
    Just gumtree a Herman Miller

  •  

    Gumtree Herman Miller is $700 + in Melbourne,
    I would jump at a $500 - $600 price on that chair depending on specifics, but really want to spend only $500

  •  

    My el cheapo PU chair is >10 years old and falling apart. Was looking at getting an IKEA chair but they're sold out. Decided to pull the trigger on a 2020 Titan Dark Knight (why not). Ordered Monday, received today (Thursday). Impressed. Good packaging.
    Assembly took about 10 minutes, easy to do. Solid chair, feels premium. Hopefully it lasts at least 10 years.

  •  

    Has anyone got a referral code they PM me?

  •  

    I know someone who bought the chair took nearly a month for the discount code to be sent out.

  •  

    I placed an order on the 4/May, expected delivery 29/May or earlier. No referral codes yet.

    Ask Mozza88 (he posted earlier in this thread), he gave me a referral code.
