Why the hate on razer's mechanical keys?

It's actually 0.3mm difference. What's the point? They didn't even lower the actuation force, my biggest gripe with the switches they use.

Because it's Razer.


I like their headsets, keyboards, tablet and modular PC design.
(not their mice).
But apparently that opinion is wrong =_=


Their headsets are terrible as well as their keyboards, I can't speak for the tablet, but their mice(and only one of them) is the only redeeming thing Razer has left.


Hey, I picked up an Edge Pro, and it is legit quality with some great (overpriced and limited quantity) accessories. The keyboard dock is Razer's attempt at s***ting on fans of the thing, though.

I've never owned anything else by Razer, so I can't speak about the rest.

Razer makes garbage peripherals. It's laughable that they talk about build quality.

Razer is still trying to pull its whole accessory thing with some of its devices? I think that's the biggest joke of all. They pulled that with the Tarantula keyboard's "battle dock." It was just a glorified mini-USB port with a special mount. They claimed it was gonna have all sorts of add-on gadgets you could plug in there and it was going to be so useful. I *think* they might have actually released a light and a webcam for it before they dumped it. Razer doesn't have a spectacular history of supporting its products with accessories, so if you buy something based on the promise of accessories, well... just don't.

Yeah, I'm just glad I only bought the Edge Pro + Docking Station (which still was $99 for essentially a hub for HDMI, 3 USB ports, Headphone jack, and a charging stand).

The $200 keyboard dock didn't even have backlighting, and some of the worst keys I've ever felt...which makes no sense since Razer is a damn peripheral company that makes keyboards. You'd think they could do better than a $100 iPad keyboard dock like Zagg makes or such.

The controller is cool, but not for $250. And they charge $70 for an extra battery to put into it. Pathetic!

The actually tablet has been awesome though. Considering I can play everything on it's native resolution, including FC3, Crysis 3, and other high end games with medium-high settings, it's pretty impressive.
