    My expensive Razer Naga mouse started having problems after 2 years or less. My Logitech G7 lasted atleast 5 years.

    I’m not buying Razer again.

    Yah, same, had a keyboard from them and it died within 2 months, RMAing it was a major PITA.

    I stick with Logitech, even when their stuff does go wrong (which is rarely in my experience), it gets replaced immediately, no questions asked and no hassles.

    The fact that razer still exist despite their well earned reputation for low quality is a testament to their outstanding marketing.
    I was foolish enough to lose hard earned cash on four of their products before I figured it was not just a coincidence. After their poor customer service for the junk I'd bought, I make a point to warn others away from making the same mistakes I did.
    Funny, I'm never alone.

    I wouldn't even call it outstanding marketing. Razer exist in this 'gamer' space where the customers gobble up everything because most of them are just kids, and a part of the rest care more about how flashy a product is rather than its quality. That's why they're still successful.
    It's hilarious how if you slap 'gaming' on a product it instantly increases its desirability for some buyers, mostly kids. I've seen some of the most basic possible desks with 'gaming' slapped on them as an excuse to ask a ridiculous price.

    I personally never had any interest in Razer to begin with because I just don't like the way most of their products look or feel. Their mice's shape aren't for me, and I never understood why those keyboard keycap fonts have to be so weirdly off centered with such a weird font, it looks like those keyboards are trying way too hard to look different and it's like they found the cheapest way of doing it.
    I'll give them credit for their mousepads however, they definitely seem to outlast Steelseries ones. Not the Sphex though, that's procreating bullshit. Accidentally got one for my brother thinking it's a regular mouse pad when in reality it was basically a big procreating sticker you stick to your desk.

    My 2 cents.

    Razer is the Apple of gaming peripherals, heavy focus on marketing.

    The only mouse I'd consider buying from them is if they outfitted the Abyssus 2014 shape with a 3360 sensor.

    I don't know why razer even bothering to get into arcade sticks, I pretty sure that the people who are into arcade sticks, spec and design wise, razer wouldn't be the first company on there mind, that they would go to for a arcade stick. To me the look of it scream's generic arcade stick with green and black paint. Plus I don't put it past them to charge an arm and a leg for it either.

    Granted I have no hate for razer, it just the only thing I would use from them at this point are certain models of there mice.I do have one regret from them the Cynosa Chroma, but lucky it was only 49 dollars. I'm bout ready to throw it in a lake.

    This is the first arcade stick I saw from razer if they known for it, then this an first for me, but then I not really in the fighting stick loop, As I only used a generic one.

    Just that razer has an habit of being cheap with some of there components, So I figured they would they would do the same for this also. The only arcade stick that I have used and now own is an generic arcade stick, while I not in the loop, I only knew about the X-arcade sticks, and a few of other brands out there, from doing small bit of research, back when I was looking for an arcade stick that matches what the actual arcade had. I did judge it based on my experience with there other product's, so I doubt they would do any better with this.
