I've had my Deathadder for right around 4 years now and have had no problems.

 

You seem quite biased, friend.

I've mentioned in the keyboard-fi thread that the DeathAdder was/is the only product Razer ever made that I would rate as excellent.

 

I've had, to date:

- DeathAdder (lasted 2 years)

- Lachesis (3 of them in a year -- lasted about 2-3 months each -- my brother bought one the same day I did, and that crapped out in a month)

- Naga (lasted 4 months, died in the middle of a top tier arena match)

- Naga Hex (lasted 6 months)

 

Note that I treated these mice like babies due to how expensive they were.

 

Compare that to my:

- Logitech MX310 (lasted for 8 years)

- Logitech MX518 (still going strong after 4 years)

- G9x just because I got bored of the MX518, despite not needing to replace it

 

The MX310 got me through my rage-filled teenage competitive CS1.6 years where I liked to throw it at the wall and down at the table during tournaments during bad plays.

 

I've also heard good things about SteelSeries and I used to really like Cytek Cyborg stuff for their joysticks.

 

I had a BlackWidow Ultimate, which had nothing inherently wrong with it aside from feeling pretty cheap, which I traded in for a Corsair K90, which was way better build quality for a lower price.

 

Do I even have to tell you how many better headphones and headsets are out there that are way better than Razer for the price?

 

Anyway, let's not derail. If you want to talk about their mice and keyboards with me:

Razer Headphones: Kids misleaded.

There are lots of brand you can choose.

Razer headphone is not for gaming even.

They only put their effort on the appearence.

Uh, I think he meant software drivers, you know, the one to make a hardware work with you computer.

I wouldn't. I'd buy the V-MODA M100 and buy a BoomPro mic.

I've had a copperhead, deathadder, naga, imperator and blackwidow, and the build quality is sketchy at best, the keyboards are particularly expensive for what you get.

My naga epic doesn't work in wireless mode anymore :( But hey, my Lycosa Mirror from 2010 is still working :D

There's a lot of anger in this thread.

I own the Tiamat 7.1 and I'm very happy with it. The build quality is superb, the whole thing is packaged and made like a premium product. The sound quality is good for its intended purpose: true surround sound in a closed headphone. All 10 drivers are clear, the bass drivers are powerful, the controller module lets you tweak the volume of each channel. For playing games and watching movies it is an excellent product and I would recommend it, certainly other surround sound headphones are either simulated surround sound or just plain rubbish. It's also very comfortable, the microphone is competent and it looks nice enough. However its design renders it useless for music.

My point is that I think Razer is a company that makes quality products, but consider their target audience and don't expect equipment made with an audiophile in mind.

razer is terrible for audio DO NOT get it. I am though, a fan of razer mouse and mouse pads.

I listened to the TIamat, kraken, and other razer audio stuff, they're too bass heavy and sound too boxed-in. They're not at all good for gaming.

Razer deathadder 2013 edition is pretty beast though

I liked my Carcharias until they broke.

That seems to be a running theme with Razer in general though...
