    IIRC, Razor gaming mice (along with LogiTech MX518s) are standard excellent gaming mice.

    Is that still true?
    Are the Razors made in Taiwan?

    Thanks.

    Razer has good hardware. Most people hate the software for being bloated and unstable. I've never had a problem but understand the complaints.

    Thanks saturnotaku.

    Are they still made in Taiwan (anywhere but China)? I checked the Amazon page (I'll buy from NewEgg) and couldn't find a COO (Country-of-Origin).

    I have an MX518 that has been great for over a decade (except the wheel is a bit sloppy), but its developing a minor short where it won't hold-and-drag. I'll fix it someday, but I think I will put it up as my backup mouse and try the Razer.

    It depends on the model you are getting. The new ones are pretty solid, Deathadder V2 is my current mouse and it's a very good mouse.
    As @saturnotaku said, the software is a bit bloated, but you don't need to run it all the time. Just set some profiles and you are good :)

    At least my Deathadder Chroma says "Made in China" on the bottom, butr I don't know how old it is.
    Excellent mouse btw. Used to have a Habu (Microsoft Mouse with Razer tech) for several years, mainly heavy office use.
    Had to throw it away earlier this year because of a faulty DPI-switch, so I bought this hardly used Deathadder Chroma.

    I'm officially done with Razer. My account got corrupted and I couldn't sign in. Now they want all kinds of personal information in order to reset it. I've replaced my keyboard and mouse with a Glorious GMMK and Model D-, respectively. They've made major improvements to the design and stabilizers on the keyboard, which I'm very happy to see. The mouse I received suffered from the same squeaky scroll wheel that I've seen others complain about, but a couple drops of PTFE Super Lube seems to have resolved it. The lack of quality control there is disappointing given how good the keyboard is, but at least it was a relatively simple fix. We'll see how long it lasts.

    It should be a crime, the account crap they pull. No amount of good hardware can overcome that level of scumbaggery; say no to these people.
