Still never seen it. Guess I'm just lucky.

yeah gaming products tend to suck. I tend to aim for enthusiast products, not gaming products; such as a happy hacking keyboard and hifiman headphones.The problem is with mice, there are no enthusiast products, only gaming products.

Only product i would buy from Razer is the DA mouse which i did 2 years and it still works good.

There's obviously no point there being an enthusiast mouse since it would be used for gaming. You just have to pick the right one. For some reason, all the large companies have inferior build quality to the 'recent' companies. Like many Steelseries products seemed to be designed and put together by people who are making their first gaming product.

Bad luck with the Deathadder. My 3G has last me so long that I can't remember how old it is. Still functions perfectly, but the plastic is warping from YEARS of use.

Hoping to see the Roccat Kone Pure Optical I picked up last just as long.

Mice pads are definitely an odd beast, though. I have a Razer SWTOR mousepad (Vespula, I believe?) and some cheap pad I jacked from work that came with one of our servers that has a foam bottom and a hard plastic type. Guess which pad I'm using... the one I jacked from work.

razer is crap , that's the problem right there son.
As for steelseries I can't comment but try "quality" gaming gear next time
post #48 of 50
Calling something "gaming gear" is basically just marketing hype to begin with. Some of it is really high-quality stuff, and some of it is just style over substance. If you do your homework before you buy, you know the difference.

If you buy something that already has a reputation for unreliability, then it's your own fault. And if you abuse something and it breaks, that's your fault too. If you buy a quality product and it just happens to fail, the companies that make "gaming gear" keyboards and mice stand by what they sell.

Not to mentioned the Razer mice their scrollwheels break off to easily. Then again that's what you get if you attach it to a really thin "stick" and have no other plastic or w/e supporting the whole structure. Eventually the strain gets to it and SNAP* it breaks.

Happened to EVERY Razer mouse I've owned in a time period of 6 to 1 year.

Also learn to channel your anger into the game. Will make up for some awesome adrenaline driven crazy stunt like moves (at least in FPS). These days I just grunt and use my anger to play faster. Learned the hard way when I was young and smashed to many PS1 controllers.

I never abuse my products. It may just be a factor of my low sensitivity though that wears down move especially near the cords. But I never smash anything.

And I can also confirm this. One of my friends gave me his perfectly working unit but the scroll wheel snapped and sunk into the mouse and is useless now. Sensor still works so I keep it around in case I need it for comparison.
