Razer Mouse + Mouse Pad, Should I buy it?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Since its Easter, HAPPY EASTER. Anyway, I got some Easter money (I was surprised, usually I only get chocolate) and I want to spend some of it on a mouse pad and mouse. I usually skimp when it comes to keyboards, mice, mouse pads etc. and I am fed up of my free advertisement mouse pad, Microsoft basic optical mouse and trashed cheap Logitech keyboard. My budget is $60.
My selection so far:
RAZER Goliathus Gaming Mouse Mat - Fragged Speed Edition - Omega S for $12 at msy.com.au
and:
Razer Abyssus for $45 also from msy.com.au

Will I have any buyers remorse if I were to buy it and pick it up?

Looks like a solid selection on both!

I've had buyers remorse every single time I've bought a Razer product. Don't have experience with the mouse or mouse pad, but after my experiences I won't buy a Razer product ever again.

Don't listen to party poopers. I love my DeathAdder as well as my Mamba. Excellent mice.

Heck no. That mouse pad is tiny and that mouse is overpriced to hell. Will you have buyers remorse? Yes when you finally want to become a part of the low sensitivity master race but can't because your mouse pad is smaller than a CD case and yes when you realize that the $45 Abyssus is bested by the $13 WMO.

Definitely get a bigger mouse pad, 12" for medium sens, more if you're a low sens.

Haven't heard many complaints about the newer Abyssus though, don't know what people are on about.

Need bigger pad.

I went from that same mousepad to a Steelseries QcK standard and am loving every minute of it.

Also don't get the Abyssus, get a Deathadder 3.5G. It's easily worth the $10 more.

If you have to, I'd say skip out on the mousepad and use it towards a better mouse. I personally don't like Razer products but if you were to choose one I'd go with the Deathadder over the Abyssus as well.

I loved my Razer Copperhead from back in the day until 6 years later it died and then I went to the deathadder... I have loved them both smile.gif never used one of their pads, though - I've had my alienware gaming pad for the last 6-7 years and have loved it.
