Another reason not to buy razer

post #1 of 447
Thread Starter 
They are ripping us off in Europe and the US

In china, they can get a 1800dpi abyssus in a special edition bundled with a "cyclosa" keyboard(non-mechanical blackwidow) for less than 20$!!

No wonder why razers build quality is so low

Been to China.
A can of coke was 17c in the airport, where it was probably more expensive than elsewhere...

Razer aren't the only ones that do it. But I've only had one razer product and it sucked hard. (arctosa)

My friend bought 2 razer mice at university - cable failed on both of them as it entered the mouse, yet he still insisted they were great confused.gif

Never had any experience with them personally, but I've used them and the build quality seems poor for the price you pay.

Razer seem to be more of a marketing company rather than a serious gaming company.. I have honestly heard so many bad things about them that I have lost count I have only ever seen a few people says the black widow was good but the alt key and space bar touches if pressed down. steelseries seem to be more serious but their mouses look horrid!

Thats not a real razor they are getting in China. What is available in China is likely a Black Market knock-off product. The Razor sold in America and Europe is produced in China under the US and European patents and generally has to meet certain qc requirements. The Junk in china could be the exact same thing even branded, but is being produced off lease or without license and being poured into the Chinese market by another company, likely the producer - and being sold w/out Razor's consent(they are making $0.00 per unit sold.) . This is fairly common and shows China's disregard for patents and intellectual property, and their contempt for international trade relationships.

Sadly, it would be corporate suicide for Razer to make allegations against China for what happens in China. This is the good and bad of using the cheap Chinese manufacturing, but in the end the company will go out of business, the customers will feel foolish for purchasing the junk, and a Chinese corporation will continue to produce and sell the original products in places that do not enforce international patent law.

Lol op fails at understanding prices and cost of living in different countries. I'll also add that I have had one Razer product a Deathadder mouse and the left click and scroll wheel both went in less than a year.
