Hmm, that definitely looks scratched rather than worn, though I must admit it was a concern that I had about the rubberised coating on the side. I much prefer well-finished plastic to a rubberised/painted surface that will eventually chip/scratch/wear off.

I know a lot of people have been complaining about the quality of Razer products for years, but until recently I have had nothing but good experiences with them. Now just recently I've had a BlackWidow Ultimate with keys that aren't straight and the Goliathus Extended Control that I bought for my DeathAdder Black a couple of weeks ago is already showing signs of wear.

It's a shame that their products don't seem to be built better, because despite those issues they are still some of, if not the, best performing gaming gear out there.

Definately scratched. This is how it should look if its worn

how does rubber even get worn?
are they skimming out and simply putting a thin coat of rubber on plastic instead of making the entire side of the mouse from rubber?

Yes, seems like steelseries use something else thought because their coating is perfect and never wears off

Yup, that's what it seems like to me. I can see the shiny part inside where the coating is wearing off.

But yeah, I would totally understand if it's been a year or more and under heavy usuage but with my case, it's only been a month... not to mention, under normal usage.

Oh well, I still have my R.A.T. 7 to fall back on if I have to RMA this thing back to Razer.

I feel ya I was just joking around. Shouldn't get that worn only after a month though. Razer makes some good stuff but my experiences have been they arent always up to par on quality materials.

hmm, I already bought one but haven't opened it yet. Looks like I might be reselling it.
I think this is normal for mice with rubber side grips though, I had it happen to an older logitec on me. I just pulled the grips off and exposed the plastic underneath. The grips were all dirty and gross from wear anyway. If this becomes a common problem with the black edition I will just sell it and stick with regularly cleaning my slick sided 3.5g..
