You'd be paying for their marketing and their name. Feenix products themselves aren't really all that special compared to 50% cheaper products. The reason why Nascita sells is because of their marketing. They make you think you really need a mouse worth 100 dollars. Obviously everyone who bought it will defend their 100 dollar purchase.
I mean, come on, this is bs 101:
You "get to" register your product so you can go to some all-exclusive internet VIP club. For mice owners.
In the midst of enjoying our games, and the social connection with our fellow gamers, we often lose sight of the fact that there are human beings who struggle to merely survive against hunger, disease, and violence.
Guilting you into thinking that you're somehow at fault and need to buy a Feenix mouse so you can donate to this cause. Why wouldn't they just donate some money into these charities and not be all "oh, we're just so much better people". This again is a company selling computer peripherals.
So much quotable material here it would take all night. Every sentence tries to back up why they're a better company you should give your money on when you're buying a computer mouse.
And then, when you're sold and you're then trying to buy the mouse:
OUT OF STOCK
email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the waitlist
The reason why you have to actually write them an email instead of using a order system which puts your bought product on backorder is just backing up the fact that they think it's some exclusive club where they're selling better products for better people. When in reality, you're trying to buy a friggin' computer mouse.And this is not just the case in Feenix's products. Feenix isn't really a major seller on the mouse markets, but even the bigger companies (Razer, Logitech, Steelseries, Mad Catz) also are quilty of this. But Feenix really takes this bs-marketing up a gear.You shouldn't trust major review sites, unless they really go in-depth on the mouse performance and ergonomics. Most of them just read the company website and their product packaging and compare this to other mice on the market, use the peripheral for a while, if it fits their hand and the cursor isn't just randomly bouncing from side to side on the screen, it's a good product to them, and they rate it well. This is true on many many "high-end" mice, not just the Nascita.Edited by meih - 6/2/13 at 10:34am
