Exactly. Don't get me wrong, Corsair sells some great products, but they sell based on the name, not necessarily the quality of the product. If Corsair isn't careful, they'll go the way of Razor, selling a few great products and a ton of mediocre ones. They've already had people critical of some of their recent products like the H100i and the Link software causing issues, LEDs burning out, and the noise issues, the H100 and the noise issues there, the major problems with the Force 3 that required a recall, and the criticisms of the rubber domes on their first gen mechanical keyboards, just to name a few.
Just like any company, Corsair is there to make a profit. Making a profit usually entails either raising prices, lowering quality, or cutting corners or some combination thereof. Razer's downfall has been all three. They still sell a lot of products because of the brand, but they're not really respected.
That said, I hope Corsair does good things with the company. They just need to make sure they actually bring a product to market that's fully tested and ready for the market (unlike their Link software) and that the premium price that Corsair products usually command is justified. I would love to see more sound cards on the market since Auzentech has almost no real presence in the US anymore, HT Omega is awesome, but tiny, Asus really doesn't seem all that dedicated to the mid-range and has flopped recently on the high end, and Creative is still the Creative of old.
