Here is the photo of the chair I bought.




Shopee link of the item is here. I chose this seller because aside from plenty positive feedback, they seem to have lots of stock on hand. I wanted to avoid being sent the "latak" inventory that can have missing parts. It cost just under 4K delivered.

https://shopee.ph/product/236384746/6142291698

I have bought many computer chairs through the years. I am a bit wary of the durability of these chairs. I have a several of them with broken arm rests. A couple failed at the stem where the lift piston connects to the seat. The one I am using has lasted for more than 2 years now and had the arm rest re upholstered. However, an identical chair bought from the same store failed at the stem part after only a few months very heavy use by my son.


For him I bought a gaming chair. It was bought from a Facebook Marketplace seller for 7K. Previous post can be found here:

http://forum.pinoypc.net/index.php?topic=34929.msg938310#msg938310

That one passed my son's durability test. However, the fake leather now needs serious re-upholstering.
So how does this product compare? I think in terms of durability, it is probably just a tad below that. The stem has a welded construction unlike the one piece formed stem of the gaming chair. However, they have reinforced it better than the previous chairs I have bought. I get it. These chair makers are pushing the envelop in price vs. durability.
So the pros are:
[size=78%]1. Moderate durability in the arm rest and piston stem. The weakest link for most chairs I have bought.[/size]
2. Possibly more durable leather covers.


So the pros are:
[size=78%]1. Seems like a bit small for me. If you are 5'10" like me, this chair is a bit under sized. The foot rest only reaches up to between the knee and the angkle.[/size]
2. Not soft or cushiony. Maybe it will be after some use but right now it's not very comfortable. Like sitting iin a public bus.

Here is a photo of the Drakon DK709 one year later. At least the chair help up, except for the worn upholstery.



If I don't get it re-upholstered, I would probably buy another one for myself next month 11.11?  Or maybe have custom seat covers made?

is it the quality of the fabric used?  couldnt it be caused by the one using it?  seems like the areas that are worn out are the high contact surfaces.  if its leather, it would still wear out like that right?

i suggest you buy a new one since you wouldnt know how long the other parts would last.  reupholstering would cost a lot too right?

^^^I think it's the fabric used.. However, my son is a heavy user and as tall but bigger than I am,. Other chairs don't last as long for him. They fail by breaking at the arm rest. I  had one fail at the stem of the lift piston. I was using an identical one for a couple of years. However I decided to use this one because it has a recline. I gave the new chair to my son. Let's see how long that one will last with him.

I also ordered some seat covers for the gaming chair. I also know of a good upholsterer specializing in car seats. Ge reupholstered the arm rest of one of my chairs.

A brand new Drakon DK709 will cost about 8K delivered from Shopee. Might be cheaper on 11.11 sale if there are stocks.

Here are a couple of arm rest missing chairs bought from the malls many years back. The bolt holding the arm rests broke. They serve to hold items being quarantined in the storage room. I have bought those mesh chairs too. They are mostly crap.




Having been burnt by weak bolts, I started replacing the bolts on some chairs. This is one example I was still using till yesterday. I bought a 2nd one for my son 2 years ago but the stem from the lift piston to the chair broke off in just a few months. I had this one rewelded. It lasted for close to 3 years.

The seat cover came in today. Washed it first with detergent and dry. I installed it this evening. It's a tight fit but I think well worth the 724php I paid. Unfortunately this only came in black or gray. There is a cheaper one but I decided to spend 200 more to expect better quality.

KStar 1200KVA UPS from Shopee.

I already own a KStar 1000KVA. It works fine. The 600VA UPS isn't enough for my setup. I decided to level up a bit and pass the 1000VA to my son.

KStar 1000VA and 1200VA  use 2 12V batteries.
