nice one Jixr,
Min-Liang Tan is responsible for a lot of Razer stuff.

to be honest, I don't think Razer are always that bad, some stuff is overhyped and overpriced, but that's the market they play in.

yeah, their products are not bad really, but their marketing division plays up consumer ignorance way too much, but the sad thing is, it works for them.

Aside from the razer naga (not the new one) and orbweaver, all their other products have better options in a similar price range from other brands.

But, but, but I like the Ouroboros (overpriced and costs a kidney, yes.) for the ambidextrous design and the customizability and I don't like the R.A.T.!

Can't bring myself to save up for it though, unless it comes to about the £90 mark or lower. I should just get the new SteelSeries Rival next.

I suppose that is how marketing works though,
Some of their products have been competitive in the past, my Salmosa mouse being their budget offering, is still going strong and a great piece of kit , even if it has been relegated to work mouse.

The Lycosa keyboard on the other hand, was a disappointment, actually I am having deja vu I probably already said all this earlier on this very thread....

Anyway, they do like a little customer input for suggestions, unfortunately for keyboard pro's etc, a lot of their research is done among the gaming community and at lan parties around the world.
I kind of like independent small companies as they strive to do something at least a big different, and who knows, maybe they will get their act together as many others have in the past.

I agree that some of their products aren't that bad, but the general image / marketing I can't stand.

I have a feeling my trusty Logitech G5 is dying frown.gif
Love that mouse to death, but I think I'm going to be in the market for a new mouse soon.
Might get one now before it dies.

I've been upset with logitech mice ever since they discontinued their scroll wheels that would automatically go into free spin mode when you spun them fast enough, now you have to click them to go into free spin.

But i'm stuck with a razor naga since I need the buttons and it has a pinky rest.

so i was thinking how cool it would be to have progressive springs in switches, the light touch of reds, and then the more you press down it feels more like pressing down blacks.

That would be a perfect spring for me.

And I think after next paycheck i'm gonna trade my QFR at home for an XT, I just find myself liking the XT so much better than the QFR.
