Well I think not bad, trade in 7000 series and top up for 7100 series. Better heat disperse and 1 year sony warranty. If I choose to repair and something else break again, another $200?

Talk about repair, my 2 SecretLab PU Leather chairs, 1st bought in Nov 2017 Black Ash, leather peeling at the knee area corners, 2nd bought June 2018 Orange, peeling at the left underside of knee area. I emailed support, they offered 2 options: pay $49 wait 4 months to replace the entire seat and backrest (which isn't that bad by itself), or trade in for $150 credit. Per chair not both.

I'm just abit disappointed the leather is peeling in less than 2 years. Black Ash use in office air-con all the time, looks like due to friction which explains the peeling at the knee area corners. Orange use at home, most likely sweat and heat which explains the underside of knee area.

My wife said f it just leave it alone and save the $49... :(

I have never sat on one b4 so I don't know whether is it worth the $49. Almost bought a dark knight one but I was turn off by the long pre order time, plus the well known peeling issue. If it's really comfy, I would spend $49 for the replacement.

I wish I could replace my hyper x cloud ii rubber surfaces. Rarely used but all turned sticky. No such offer :lol:

It really is, the magic is in the cold cure foam, which is like the foam used in car seats (the better ones at least). The SoftWeave I think is better for our climate.

Ordered iron spider statue from qoo10. Seller showed me pic taken from amazon when I asked if it's authentic. I have been observing stock updates. Almost everyday the stock updated date will change but stock quantity always 10 available. This power seller has 2 listings of the same item with one priced higher than the other. After a day status updated to seller shipped. 2 days later I asked for a tracking number and I was told that it would arrive this week. Few hours later seller cancelled order, reason was out of stock. Few hours later, that 2 listing became 3 listing with the latest one having a higher price then the other 2. All of them have 10 in stock. So what the hell is going on? I got refunded but I'm still curious :lol: If truly oos, should delist all. If want to sell higher, 1 listing is enough. Are there any benefits in accepting orders but not fulfiling them?

Alot of the Qoo10 sellers are concierge buyers, taking the so-called top seller advice from top traders selling their tips courses. They take listings elsewhere and repost on Qoo10, then when you order they order on Amazon and elsewhere. Some of them have rip-off prices, preying on the lazy or uninformed or less-savvy online shopper.

My wife is one such lazy shopper, she bought a Disney Frozen picnic chair from Qoo10 for S$100+, but Amazon SG lists for S$25.

I bought One Piece World Seeker for 69.90sgd 6mths ago and now it's on sale for 39.95sgd standard and 52.45sgd for game+sp. That's all fine but the season pass is still priced at 29.90sgd instead of the discounted price of 12.50sgd. So yea screw me for buying physical disc and end up having to eventually pay 100sgd for this game. The reason psn gave was commercial consideration. Seems like ps4 games prices drop way too fast and sp seldom go on sale unless it's bundled with the base game in asia psn or if the game tanked real hard.

The season pass are only available digitally. No retailers selling except for them, no competition means no need drop price. That's why I hate the inevitable digital only future.

Nintendo Switch games prices more stable. I can play 6mths later after I bought it and the price is still close to launch price. Now I seldom buy day one PS4 games. Sometimes after 1 or 2 months, the game goes on sale, even physical disc.

And that's why I guess I'll never buy Nintendo platform. I'm a cheapskate El cheapo and can't afford games at full price. Hahaha

Just buy the exclusives will do. I only buy multi platform titles on switch only if the trophies are grindy.

Freaking collectibles bug in Jedi Fallen Order. Chests not registering even though I have opened them all in Ice Caves. Did a search and found out that it was reported 2 weeks ago and can happen in other maps. They are aware of it and working on patch since 2 weeks ago :lol:
