    I started buying razer products after falling in love with my first tartarus. knowing i could meet up with tons of other users and hear the tips and tricks and even just the stories from other users made it more fun. Joining insider made me really feel like part of the "cult of razer." the new zsilver reward is just a nice bonus for loyalty.

    Never thought about rewards - they won't do much effort anyway, and I want to talk not for money. If there is 95% of people who's here only because of money... It is not good ;(

    I have been on here since 2013 with my first razer account. Pretty sure there was no silver back then.

    You would be correct - Insider Beta started roughly the middle of October and there were no rewards of any kind of at least the first year or so. We all had a great time and loved having the community, regardless of no zSilver or rewards. This was just a great place to be, it still is, it's too bad that so much of the conversation has degraded to only being about getting rewards.

    Agree totally, they're always whining about the daily rewards on the forums not working.

    Waa! Waa! It's such a minuscule amount, get over it already.

    With over 500,000 users and still growing, silent and vocal, it was probably overwhelming the system and people were abusing it as usual. What else is new?

  6. My trouble with Razer mice has never ended. I can not even seem to get a proper fix about that. Even completely reinstalling Windows OS does not cure it. Frankly, Razer mice has been the only products i could not
    solve the issues i experienced with so far.

    However, despite all unwanted things which even cripple my whole DotA gameplay experience, id love to share some stuff and thats why i'm here.:wink_::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_::big_grin_:

    I'm here for both. Zsilver is just a nice bonus but you don't even get THAT much for being active here.
  8. I don't buy Razer products anymore. Having a $70 mouse fail after normal use just after the 2 year warranty - no thanks. Not buying their products anymore.

    I'm actually more interested in the Cortex program, it tracks game time (I know, lame). After using Xfire for so many years, then moving to Raptr for a couple years after Xfire stopped, there's no real single game time tracking program anymore and as it seems, Cortex is the closest thing. Raptr was good, until about 4 years ago once AMD took over Raptr (or partnered with them), it went downhill from there and any support for it was stopped towards the end of 2016. The rewards program (which was crap to begin with) was scrapped earlier this year and soon the announcement came that 9/30/17 the program would be scrapped and servers shutdown.

    So, here I am. Checking out another program (Cortex) that'll track game play time. Here's hoping that somewhere down the road Razer may allow the importing of game time from Raptr (Raptr allowed any user to download and save their gameplay data in a .json file) into Cortex - I doubt it'll happen, but one can hope.

    I also don't mind going through the forums here, looking for interesting posts. Even though Razer claims they've surpassed the 500k mark for users here, the forums aren't very active from what I've seen....I pop through here every couple of days to see what folks might be talking about with gaming and anything that peeks my interest.

    To Be Honest, I'm here to kill time weekdays, Sat and Sun I'm gaming. Earning zSilver seconds. Why? Come on, 1,5,10 zSilver? Better for me earning from P2P.

    Doesn't matter people come for giveaways only or what. It is a good sign still! As they come to know RAZER, and leave to spread RAZER. While we as a forum insider can continue communicate, hi-bye insider responsible to spread the words. Any big deals? Why your title seems... so negative?

    For zSilver. I was regret I did not attend at the first time they introduce, as I though is waste of time. But I am wrong... If not, I already got 2 RAZER freebies to showoff now:smiling_imp:... Even though zSilver is time consuming, but is really awesome and it MUST last long! As the accomplishment of redeem a RAZER product from hard earn zSilver feels go GREAT!

    Except for the ManO' War, which has a fundamental design flaw.

    Okay, lets be honest. I'm here 50% because of zSilver :'D but also I'd like to communicate with you guys. I have problems in face to face way of making friends because I'm kind of a shy and introvert person, but I also experienced that its easier for me to make friends and nice conversations in forums like this. So I'm also here to discuss things and have fun. :)

    I was here before the whole zSilver and I love how there's a bigger community now. There are more threads to react to! The zSilver reward is a nice perk, but it's not the dealbreaker for me. I like to talk to likeminded people and it's fun to see other peoples POTG'S from Overwatch.

    Rewards? Zsilver? Giveaways?

    I'll have to look into those - seriously, don't know a thing about them.

    I came here because I bought a Blade and was doing some googling on how to swap out the SSD and was having some issues with it. So made an account here, posted and received some insight on what might be causing the issue and BAM, have a shiny new SSD in my Blade.

    I have been hanging around because I do prefer Razer products in general and have a set of Chroma gaming gear. Now to find out about these silver reward giveaways...

    I started using Razer Cortex to test it before writing an article for a gaming blog.
    Sincerely? I really enjoyed Cortex's functions, I started using it daily as Gaming Booster for my PC and of course for the P2P program.

    I've always found the Razer products too expensive (I'm pretty stingy when it comes to peripherals...) but thanks to Cortex I started approaching Razer and now I'm considering buying some products.
    Now im'here, on Insider, just to snoop around.

    I think this is Razer real objective... widening the community and making their products appealing to a wider range of users.
