    Insiders,

    Every so often I come across perfectly working, abandoned peripherals in the office. Some are old, some have suffered some cosmetic injuries but are still in good working order and many of them aren't boxed.

    Would you be interested in them as giveaways?

    Can I have one of Mins Razer hoodies?

    Doesn't need to be abandoned just ya know offer to hang it up and just not give it back.

    In all seriousness recycling is good! Long as it works I don't see this as a problem whatsoever.

    I'd be down for used products even if they have some minor damage on the outside but as long as they work, I think it would be a great idea.

    I think it'd be great!
    Only caveat I can see is how this could be spun into negative PR. Don't want this to be a thing that says "Razer is too cheap to give away new products lol".

    How can we prevent something like that? What if the product happens to be broken (or breaks during the shipping process)?

    Maybe sell these products for discounted Silver?
    Have a raffling system? (Where users can either enter a raffle for a new product, or the used one.)

    Yeah, especially if it's something that I don't have ... or something that I would be ok with giving to my son or daughter as their first actual Razer peripheral (they don't get to touch my stuff yet).

    Hey! I would just like to say, I love that you are enthusiastic to give back to the community. I love Razer and hope that you do decide to give things away. Of course if you decide not to, it is your choice. I look forward to hearing more on this. Thank you for caring about the community! I love RAZER!

    But if the giveaway is just to our Insider Forums would that really be an issue? I mean free is free in my eyes. And so long as it's good working products I think alot of people would love to get something that is newer and better than what they have. If this was something being posted on the Razer main store site as a giveaway I'd totally agree. I think it would be safe. :wink_:

    I think if someone have a issue will not enter giveaway but most people will be glad to win something :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I feel a song coming on ... (to the tune of Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis)

    I'm gonna raise my hand
    Gonna take whatever Dekades' tossin'
    I'm I'm a huntin'
    Lookin' for a come up
    Razer's freakin' awesome

    Walk onto the bus in the land of the big spider
    I'm so pumped, just got some free stuff from Insider
    RGB keyboard, with a dope wrist rest
    BlackWidow Chroma (v2?) yeah, it's best
    Gaming mice, different styles, addin' to the war machine
    Quartz/pink, 'cept my Razer keys, yeah those are green
    Draped in a early style of Razer tee that I won
    Prob'ly should have washed it, but I just had to put it on ... but damn, maybe worn by Min?!?!

    Baggin' em, grabbin' em, I don't care the sensor is a laser
    Long as they're not broken and the THS means they're from Razer
    Bummy and grungy, damn Dekades, could have used a wipe, no
    I'm not lookin' in the horse's mouth, nah, I ain't one to gripe
    I'ma take your Master's style, I'ma take your Master's style
    No, really, ask your CEO: can I have his hand-me-downs?
    Razer Rising Hoodie that someone discarded
    Razer Rogue Backpack smells like someone just f*rted
    Don't want a broken keyboard, don't want a broken keypad
    'Kay maybe just for my collection, you give me that
    Hello, hello, my triple-headed logo
    No gaming brand's got you beat, ah hell no
    I could make an old BlackWidow get some re-use
    Switch-heads be like, "Man, he got the Cherry Blues"

    I'm gonna raise my hand
    Gonna take whatever Dekades' tossin'
    I'm I'm a huntin'
    Lookin' for a come up
    Razer's freakin' awesome

    **That's all I got tonight - just had to get it out**

    In case some of the references have people like, "huh?" ...
    "the land of the big spider" ~ I currently live in Australia, home of the huntsman - look it up
    "the sensor is a laser" ~ obviously referring to the laser sensor in some mice, like my go-to the Naga Epic Chroma
    "Man, he got the Cherry Blues" ~ the BlackWidow keyboard from 2010 used Cherry MX Blues ... he said "some are old", but not HOW old. ;)

    Please, send me some. I have a $10 mouse and keyboard combo :slightly_sad:
    I just won a giveaway, and I'm just 3000 zsilver away from getting myself a brand new mouse and keyboard.
    If I cannot win a giveaway, can I maybe, ya know, perhaps, pretty please, please get 3000 zsilver...

    That would make it possible for me to finally upgrade and just get a bit less bad at games :)

    But how or what are the terms for the giveaway and what are the items exactly? I feel like you mean maybe Lenovo or some other branded item from a company that's in use and you would like to giveaway to more unfortunate or other persons. Not really Razer equipment per say.
