    Hey,

    I am looking to buy some Razer products, but before I do I was wondering if it is a good brand or is it just a 'brand'.


    Thanks For the Help!

    Their products are very good, but overpriced imo. They kind of have an Apple vibe going, they are overpriced for what they are, but still overall good products.

    Razer is an awesome brand... Their products are all high quality, albeit on the pricey side... I usually get my keyboards and mouses from razer but they also have other interesting stuff. Also, all their stuff is extremely cool looking, that's a plus. =3

    It's a brand you can trust usually. ^^

    Edit: I was ninja'd by xuphor. xP
    And yeah, like she says you can compare it to apple reggarding their prices. 80€ for a mouse and 120€ for a keyboard. T_T

    They're good but too expensive.

    Depending on what you're looking at, Logitech has better mice for cheaper (or much better for the same price).
    SteelSeries has better mousepads/mats for around the same price, or cheaper. (they also look cooler, and have a ton of variety)
    Dunno about keyboards but i know a few people who bought a Razer keyboard and noticed it started sucking after a month or two. I forget the exact problems with them. *shrug*

    That sounds god awful. There is no person that actually needs 12 keys on the side of a mouse. That's just pointless.
    Except maybe Korean Starcraft players.

    I am looking at getting some headphones, for my iPod and Laptop. Can you guys recommend a good headset for me, up to $200. I asked this question because I cam across the Gazer Orca headset, so I was wondering if they were good. Do you have any other good headphones to recommend?

    I believe those were mainly for MMO players.

    But not all of their stuff is overpriced though...(don't know if I can say the same about Apple) Some of their stuff is best in class, IMO. Sometimes it also comes down to preference.

    Headphones or headset? Isn't the Orca just headphones? I just recently got the Turtle Beach X12 and they're pretty good. But that was only at the $50 price point.

    Maybe for WoW kiddies who think they need 300,000 hotkeys. (literally every Naga lover I see online in reviews call it an MMO mouse, and play some shit game like WoW)
    I'm a hardcore MMO PvP gamer. I have played dozens upon dozens of MMOs, and not a single one have I EVER needed buttons on my mouse. I could rock a stock mouse and keyboard, and all i'd lose out on is mouse precision compared to a higher end mouse. If a person NEEDS that many buttons, they're doing it severely wrong and really need to learn how to manage their hotkeys.

    A Logitech G700 is cheaper (or the same price? I forget) than a Razer Naga, and beats the crap out of it comfort wise, and as far as i've read and heard from comparisons, the G700 is more precise.

    Razer stuff looks pretty, and is expensive. It's good stuff, but if you check around other brands you'll find cheaper or more powerful alternatives, just without any gimmicks like too many buttons, or glowing shit.

    the headphones are pretty lousy.
    go for a real headphone brand, and buy a cheap clip on mic if you need.
    i prefer an open design for my headphones, but that's me....

    I love Razer
    Got a Deathadder at the moment

    The reason why I love Razer is because so far they are the only company Ive seen that brings out mice for lefthanded people


    So if youre a lefty and want to get a good mouse, the Deathadder Left Hand edition is for you

    Razer is not a good brand! Its a over hyped and over priced brand!

    Razer mice are good but don't have the best build quality. Logitech's are better build wise but I personally find them less enjoyable to use over the long term.

    Don't bother with any of the various gaming or surround headsets, you're much better off getting a good pair of sennheisers or shures and some kind of cheap standard mic to go with it.
