To me, that's worse than their mining software shenanigans.

THANKS RAZER!!!! I would also expect nobody on this website uses Razer.
I've been using a Deathadder for the last 10 years. I really like the feel and the quality has always been fine for me at least.

Yeah the drivers are a little annoying but I configure my setttings and then disable it from starting up.

Some of their products are quite good. However, it really is hit or miss.

First Razer product I owned was the Abyssus. Entry level mouse. I was really happy with but found it a bit small. Still works but I decided to "upgrade" & I bought a Razer Deathadder 3.5G. Probably one of the highest recommended mice at that time. Had that since 2012 / 2013. Stills works; it's my traveler / office / work mouse.

However, I've read a lot of bad things about Razer and product quality control... this was evident when I bought a Razer Lycosa. Huge buyers remorse. Last Razer product I bought. Shortly after the warranty expired... it became incredibly dysfunctional, both software and hardware. Just a ticking time bomb of garbage. Never again.

Ended up buying the Logitech G710+ as it was just released at the time. Love love love love and still love it. Just picked up the Logitech G502 mouse for home use. Love that thing to.

I completely agree on the lycosa.
For me both the lycosa and lachesis were amazingly bad. Razer seems to experiment at that time, and brought a lot of bad ideas and low quality products. The keyboard was very low quality for its price and had a lot of hardware issues, and the lachesis had a really bad sensor. But I had to RMA, and the replacements both had the same bad issues.
I took a break from razer for a few years. But since I had the naga and blackwidow, and both are of really good quality.

Some of their products I like, but unless it is under a big sale, I would not consider a purchase. They are over valued by a few good %, and there are many alternatives available.

I am totally out of the loop on the crypto currency scam. How much money could a potential customer be earning for Razer each day?

Other mouse brands offer a chip in the mouse, right? Razer requires you to connect to their servers and doesn't that cost them money to run?
