I <3 my black widow ultimate keyboard.

The only good mecha keyboard I could find that actually had back lighting, which REALLY matters to me, as I can't type if there's no light on the keys, and I hate trying to look at my monitor with the lights in the room turned on (makes it hard to focus).

I also tried out a razer imperator (went through 2 of em, very lackluster mouse for the price), the goliathus mouse pad, and the razer megalodon headphones.

Here's my opinions on the few razer products I've tried so far!

Imperator:

The issues I found with the imperator were that the right and left clicks on the imperator had so much resistance in them that it'd cause me to screw up in SC2 relentlessly, not targeting unit groups and such properly.
The shape of it also had my hand falling off it all the time, and I found myself pushing it around with my thumb and pinky alot without realizing it, lol.

The first imperator I got also had the issues where it would disconnect itself from the comp randomly, which lost me many a ladder match. The replacement for it didn't have the same issue tho thankfully.

End result, I returned it and got my money back. I now use a gigabyte M8000x in it's place, and im loving it!!


Razer Megalodon:

Then there was the headset.. Oh boy, the headset. This thing may have functioned properly, but functioning properly was apparently producing sound that was the equivalent of $15 walmart ear buds. >_<
Returned them 3 days after testing them out a bunch.

I actually tested a TON of different high end headphones, and wound up finding the Turtle Beach DPX21's to be the very best quality in all sound ranges (including bass/lows that sound like they're coming from a THX sound system(which I also own)).


Goliathus Mouse Pad:

The last item I have by razer atm is their goliathus mouse pad. I found the pad to be an amazing cloth pad, that really did offer a great balance of speed/control, and I never experienced any tracking issues with it.

The imperator also slide across it at CRAZY speeds! The two were definitely made for each other.

Sadly tho, my M8000x has issues with cloth pads, so im trying out the razer scarab whenever it arrives from amazon. I've got high hopes for this pad too, as I've yet to hear a single bad thing about it.


Black Widow Ultimate Gaming Keyboard:

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 it rocks! <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3



All in all... I'd say I like razer, as they have some decent products, eventho they also have alot of horrible ones too. But then again, doesn't every company?

I mean even logitech has a bunch of flopped products (G510 keyboard for example. can't even be detected when a comp boots up so you need a second keyboard plugged in at all times for the comp to even boot!!) but everyone still seems to love them.

Not to mention the fact that razer heavily supports e-sports and helps out alot with the SC2 scene. So it's very hard for me to dislike them. :>

I have had 3 razer mouses and am pleased with them all so far. I am looking to replace my death adder with a 7 button mouse. Still don't know what to get!
post #154 of 171
I can only speak for my DeathAdder, I know people like to slam and defend Razer...

I love that mouse, I've been using it for years and the materials have held up and the mouse works great. I definitely give it a lot of use. No wear to speak of besides the scroll click not registering sometimes. However I had my binds ill suited, so I blame myself for mashing it.

I have to clean the side of it where it is glossy, but I have a glass desk so I clean my desk like twice a week anyway.

Like 5 years from now I bought one of the pieces of hardware I´ve kept using the longest time (normally I sell/replace them after 2-3 years), a Razer Copperhead. It was love at first touch, I loved the 2000CPI sensitivity back then, the shape was perfect for me and the buttons the best I´ve ever tried (sensitive, tactile and well placed).
I still use this mouse nowdays (not as a gaming mouse but for my notebook) and I can say its quality is outstanding considering I´ve used it intensely for 5 years and despite the worn feet and some little scratches the mouse is just like it´s first day. I don´t have those acid sweaty kind hands so even the surface is almost immaculate.

After most comments I´ve read on the interwebs I started to think that razer made its first products with high quality (the copperhead/krait/diamondback) while decreasing later. Anyway I bought a BlackWidow keyboard since was the only mechanical tactile available in my country and I have to say is the best keyboard I´ve ever tried (normally happens with your first mechanical keyboard).
The blackwidow itself is not perfect, I hate that glossy finish (how on earth you put glossy on an object that contacts constantly greasy human hands), that weird macro sidekeys that make it 2 cm wider, the weird razer font and the lack of a PS/2 connection but it´s relatively cheap for a mechanical that has decent anti-ghosting. That razer signature features make the blackwidow somewhat undesirable... but razer sells so there´s no problem at least for them.

I've owned a Razer Onza TE (I use it for PC platformers) and a pair of Carcharias. The first TE started crapping out on me and they took a good couple weeks to FINALLY send me a replacement. Hopefully the new one will have better build quality, but from what I've seen online, I doubt it. The Carcharias on the other hand, work perfectly fine. I'm not an audiophile, but I really could notice the difference.

I am currently using the mamba. Worst mouse ever owned:

-Overall lousy build quality, cheap feel (The rubber where the thumb goes, wasn't glued properly so it keeps sliding off).
-Overpriced (The transparent glass cube it came in, made me immediately think that they used more money on marketing, than making a good product).
-Both the mouse & software, too much frills, geeky looking. But I knew that before buying, so my bad.

But haven't had any tracking issues.

OPINION: DO NOT BUY RAZER.

One thing I really don't understand, is how people even can consider buying Razer over professional sound industry companies like: Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, AKG...the list goes on, when it comes to sound.

They have a very juvenile marketing campaign and most of their stuff isn't very good.

The Deathadder is a pretty good mouse, but it's ergonomics seem to have been designed by creatures who basically know what hands look like.

The Razer Carcharias is just a rebranded Fischer Audio Phoenix.

Most of their mice use the PTE sensor, which has the aforementioned z axis bug, which is not just a problem for lifting off. It mostly rears its head in that the cursor shifts when you try to click if you aren't using a hard pad. Having the newer style feet with the one in the middle helps a bit, but it's still there, and not every mouse have this kind of feet available. This is actually more of a problem on the desktop than in game, because it tends to make you just highlight stuff instead of click it, and makes double clicking tough.

A lot of people just dislike them on principle for spreading the "dpi = quality" myth that helps makes it so hard to find good mice nowadays.

The quality is like in the cheapest chinese products but they cost $200 more
post #160 of 171
Deathadder is the best mouse ever. Goliathus in my experience has less friction than the QCK+ and it also has rounded edges, so my wrist doesn't get cut.

Their mice use better sensors than those SS uses.

Rest idk... From my experience with the Imperator, which would not only make the xhair go down while re-positioning, but would stop working altogether for a couple seconds after some "DPI scaling" patch... probably crap.
