Is it possible to be a Razer enthusiast without owning any Razer products?

    totally. I am a car enthusiast but don't any of the cars I am enthusiastic about. I don't see how that is different from Razer gear. just because its more expensive and may not be currently attainable doesn't mean you can't aspire to have the best and still be closely knit with the community.

    eh, cars are different. And I feel like you have to at least have worked on a car at some point or another to understand what is going on in all the fancy crap they show on top gear. Same goes with this, I think it is hard to appreciate something you haven't been able to behold for yourself.

    I can appreciate liking something and aspiring one day to own it. I always thought of myself as PC building enthusiast when i was younger. I bought a lot magazines, and visited countless websites with cool high end builds. I never built one myself until I saved enough money after highschool though. If you like something keep at it, and you will eventually find yourself deeper in the hobby than you imagined. By the way, I just got my first piece of Razer gear this week a Naga and was a part of this forum a few months already.;)

    I don't think you should have worked on a car. But being an enthousiast you should definitly have an understanding of how a car works and what is possible.

    Very possible. I first learned about Razer back in 2010 and was a fan ever since. I only got my first Razer stuff late last year when I finally decided to kick new gen consoles and go PC.

    You can be enthusiastic about sports without playing them. You can be enthusiastic about space travel while stuck on Earth. You can be enthusiastic about anything you want to be AsianNationq.

    I would think so.
    I liked Razer before I had ever purchased one of their products.
    Since then, I've amassed my sizable collection by purchasing used/broke ones and repairing them. Just about everything works perfectly for me these days.

    I just.... I really don't understand how you can be a fanatic about something without ever having used it. This is different than having a favorite sports team or day dreaming about cars. Razer makes peripherals primarily and without having used one how can you obsess over it? It just doesn't make sense to me and just seems like a cry for attention?

    I think there's a misunderstanding in being an enthusiast.
    sure you can be enthusiastic about stuff, im enthusiastic when i see a bar of chocolate - doesn't mean I'm gonna eat it.
    So I totally understand where @Destrok is coming from - you can be happy to see a chocolate bar but if you never ate it before you are actually happy to see the wrapper not the chocolate.
    ps. Chocolate is awesome and i eat it whenever i see it.

    I would say that yes, you can most definitely be a fan who doesn't own anything. However, I also think that a true fan / enthusiast will eventually purchase the items they've been coveting to improve their game experiences.

    You can be an enthusiast about a football team but you don't have to be the manager of them, right?

    That is very different. Watching football is a form of entertainment. It is something you can do with your family, or scream at with a crowd of thousands of people. It is something you watch not a product you use. And having played football, my appreciation for the athleticism truly required to pull that stuff off has increased and my overall understanding of the game has as well, increasing my enjoyment of it. But, you don't have to have played football to enjoy watching it. With gaming peripherals and systems it is very different. You don't watch a keyboard or mouse. The appreciation comes from the way it feels. Someone earlier in the thread said they were a Razer fanatic but they didn't even have a single product, which seems utterly asinine to me, because the appreciation comes from having used the products.
