    I have had so many Razer products at this point, and I've had to RMA a few - but the replacements were always exceptional and the others that didn't need RMA have lasted for years and years, even the items that I use almost daily. So far, the same is true for the clothing, backpacks, keyboard bag, mouse pouches, ammo pack, etc.

    Back in 2010 I always purchased “made in Japan” products because I know how good their QC and how they respect their costumers, but nowadays you almost can’t get it from overseas all made in, you know. Now every big manufacturer covered it with better CS. I’ve Razer products from their Tablet till Keyboard, entering the 4th years no Hardwares Issue my main gear like keyboard, Laptops, mouse etc works perfectly only maybe software related issues like driver, windows update etc, I returned my order usually when I don’t like it or like for Jacket, if the size doesn’t fit me well, their CS are also in my experience not bad as poeple say.

    I've never had problems with a Razer keyboard and I've owned several, still using a Blackwidow Ultimate from a few years back and it has been rock solid. Same as the various mice I've owned.

    There's a ton of counterfit Razer products out there that people end up with and people will obviously report problems with those. I actually had this issue myself with the Hammerhead BT's - I found a pair cheaper than normal from an ebay seller with a ton of 5 star feedback, including on the Hammerheads but when I got them and the in line mic didn't work I did some digging and found out they were counterfit. Physically with the earphones and even with the packaging they were excellent looking copies, but copies they were. Only I did a bit of digging with serial numbers etc. you probably couldn't have told.

    I have used my BW Chroma for about 3.5 years now, and its still running strong! When I put a desk in my room, I moved my Chroma to my laptop and bought a BW Ultimate 2012 (I love Macros) for my PC. I doubt i will ever buy a keyboard that isn't made buy Razer. I also have an older Kraken Pro, which is fairly solid as well. Quality is far above par with Razer.

    I have a blackwidow X tournament, it's fine. It doesn't feel as well-built as my old TG3 keyboard, but it was a fraction of the price and has a mostly-standard layout. The typing feel is nice. The paint on the frame is rather poor, there is some orange peel and it is already worn shiny under the spacebar from my thumbs. but you don't look at the keyboard when typing (hopefully). The lights are nice but I wouldn't have minded a version without the lights instead. I just like my kb+mouse to match the rest of my computer so I bought razer peripherals.

    For a decent clicky keyboard <$100 I don't think it can be beat.

    I never have broken anything from razer. and I have a lot of stuff.
    the only problem Razer have, it's software. synapse 3 is really still in beta and support few hardware, stargazer webcam is... crap, drivers problem from everywhere. don't talk about razerphone bugs -.- really hope they fix software department and also support dep.

    I love your name, just gotta say :big_grin_:

    I've owned numerous Razer gear and swag since early 2014.. and while I am not trying to jinx myself, all of my Razer products are still working well, without fail. My original keyboard from them, a Deathstalker, still works well but I recently switched to a Blackwidow Ultimate.. oh the clickiness!

    I have an Orochi I use with my Blade; both still work well, but I've only been using the Blade for a few months admittedly. Used the Ouroboros on my PC for years, but switched to the Basilisk recently so I can play better in FPS. No complaints with either.

    The only Razer products that didn't last under me were the Nabu Watch and Nabu.... I have big wrists, and the plastic broke in the Nabu. In the watch, one of the plastic thingys that clasp the watch broke off, but I'm generally a pretty rough guy. I wish they continued their Nabu line and made a slightly bigger Nabu for my wrist size, but they were good products while they lasted.

    If you delve deep into the interwebs like me, I've found conflicting experiences with their Blades... QC issues or whatnot. Don't know what to believe, but then again, people say their Support is horrible yet I've always had great assistance! So.... do your research, take things with a bit of salt. Then again, I'm a major Razer fanboy too :wink_:

    Keyboards don't seem to have the same longevity as they used to. I've been using my Deathstalker Expert for almost 5 years of continuous use but after only using my Blackwidow Chroma off and on for 2 years the shift key's switch is already dead (never really had the space for it till recently).
    Mice are always improving in quality and I've never needed to upgrade them and I've only done so when the features on a prospective device make the purchase feel like a real "upgrade."
    I've only recently gotten into Razer's systems, but there seems to be an interesting trend, and my opinion would be: do not get any devices with new design changes or features. I would definitely wait till the Gen 2 version of the device (unless it seems stable on the first try) I got the first gen RBS and although it was a good ultrabook on launch, it's compatibility with the Razer Core after it released ended up being extremely shoddy. Even after the required updates it could still hang up during gameplay, although Razer really outdid itself with the New RBS (kaby lake) and these issues are very rare and on the occasion it does happen it's after an automatic windows update (gj Microsoft).
    Headsets are always reliable but if you don't want your mic finally giving out after 2-3 years after your cat chews off the mic encasement. Idk how it survived that long... what is Razer...
    Haven't bought any new gamepads, but my Nostromo is still going strong.
