dutchgenius pretty much said what I was thinking. If I had to pick one brand for all three I would go with Logitech followed by Cooler Master.

In all my years I have yet to try a Razer product other than a mouse pad, so I wouldn't know about that.

I would personally go with Corsair, then Coolermaster, then Steelseries.

Corsair has the best all-round lineup, with their new Vengeance line keyboards/mice. I own the K60 and its aesthetic is awesome. I also don't mind the M60 mouse.
Coolermaster makes great budget mechanical keyboards, though they can't compare to full-blown mechanicals like Filco, rosewill, WASD, ducky, etc.
Steelseries has the 5hv2 (which I love, been chucking them around and they just don't die) headset which has a really good mic design. I also use the Xai, which is a really good no-random-**** mouse.

The reason why Logitech isn't on there is because I have never owned a Logitech product, EVER. Sorry Logitech lovers - but I want to keep this objective.

no whining from the Logitech crew here.

personally I think Corsair makes VERY high quality products which is why I have used their ram, cases, and cpu coolers in the past... just dont know much about their peripherals since they are new to the game. as for SteelSeries, I can speak for the quality of their mousepads and was close to buying a headset... until I read countless negative reviews. I owned a first generation WOW mouse from them too and it was just garbage. That being said, I have heard good things about their keyboards.

You're better off doing this on an individual product basis. Theres no such thing as one brand being better than the other and vice versa...

I owned a Filco Tenkeyless Otaku, but the blank keycaps frustrated me in the dark.

If I were to mix and match I'd get a Ducky with MX Blues, a Razer Mamba, and a Sennheiser PC151 most likely. However, I'm intrigued by Zowie, which is also affordable.

Agreed.

Personally if I had to pick one I'd choose Logitech, I've yet to have a single one of their products break in over 12 years, yes...over 12, my old mice and keyboards from them still work 100% from the 90s. wink.gif

Currently I use a Logitech G400 mouse, SS QCK Mass pad, with a Das Keyboard Ultimate, I had a pair of Razer headphones, which broke within a week and came with a DOA mouse, and faulty keyboard. 3 strikes in 1 mail order.

I was going to get the Ducky and the Zowie AM, but I was impatient, both are great products from what I've read.

What I meant by that is quite a few brands share the same factory OEMs. Your general quality or impressions really on Industrial design, coating material, and how much a company is willing to spend creating a product.

There are brands that invest heavility into nice ID and you have some with poor ID and better internal hardware. It's quite hard to judge as a general consumer if you don't know what to look for in both categories.

For instance, I think the G400 has nice ID, but the internal hardware isn't the "best" in my eyes. Its price point and warranty make up for this though.

I have the tt esports challenger ultimate keyboard and theron mouse, both are excellent and are serving me well! I've played on a mechanical and don't get the hype, to me they are noisy and I have no issues knowing when I pressed my rubber key down so for me the fully lit and color changing options won me over. I own a logitech headset and I've had to tape the entire headband so the wires stayed put since they fell out of the plastic. I also am appauled by the sound the produce if I am forced to run my sound through them instead of my speakers. I'm hard on headsets and headphones and dont care to use them anyways so I'll probably never spend more than $20 on them so I guess i am getting what I pay for.

Yep and even in every department they all have flawed and great products. Deathadder vs Any Z Axis plagued mouse for instance. Positive accel on G500/700 vs the great Logitech G400.

They all have great products and bad ones too.

People that make good mice make bad keyboards and headsets. I would do either corsair or steel series cause they both do decent keyboards and headsets.
