Razer POTM Prizes, FYI

So, as some of you are aware, we've had a few problems getting our POTM prizes out.

What I've normally done is get address details from the winners, passed them on to Razer OS, and the prizes have been sent direct. This, however, has fallen down in recent months, so I just contacted the local external PR for Razer; it appears Razer's gone through some personnel changes, I've not been informed, and that's where the issue has arisen. I'm hoping to get to the bottom of this shortly, and either get back on track with Razer, or find a new POTM sponsor.

I'll keep folks informed. Regardless, if you're waiting on a POTM prize, could you email me - dhollingworth@atomicmpc.com.au - with your address and phone contact, so I can get together one updated file on who's missing stuff. If the Razer deal is kaput, I'll do my best to find alternate hardware in the labs, or add similar value on to existing subs, or some other solution that'll see those missing out taken care of.

Watch this space.

Apparently I got post of the month for a laptop overclocking guide I did like 4 years ago, I never found out until about 3 years later when smakme commented on me getting potm, kinda funny from my perspective, Im not chasing any prizes (I have a better mouse anyway) just thought I'd say it.

regarding prizes you should just send people some random PR junk like stickers or a tshirt or something.

I won miss universe a few years back but they wouldn't give me the crown, so I know how you feel.

On another note Hawkeye. You are not alone in your situation Razer of the last few months has started re negging on sponsorship's and sending out gear to gaming teams.

Most likely the same people looking after it : /

Gah, way to link to something I hadn't updated for a couple of months! :-p

But because life is awesome, I just updated it :-) And it's not a sticky, it's an index of once-were-stickies :-)

Technically I won a second POTM. But the Logitech G5 I got from my first POTM is fine. Can I ask Razer to donate to, say, Mykl's charity?

Mykl's son's 16 and might need to take it easy every now and then... sounds like it might come in handy!

"wtf is this big box doing here from HK, I didn't order anything this big from DX.... oooh black and green headphones!"

A little surprised they're not USB in this day and age, but eh. Will try them out tomorrow or something. Thanks!

They feel really comfortable to wear, which is a nice change from my Beyer DT660s! NFI how they sound, tho' I'd be surprised if it was favourably <.<

The lack of USB is really making me scratch my head now - the front mounted audio jacks on my case have never worked, so I typically use an extension cable to swap speakers and cans on the rear jacks. But they won't work with the integrated mic cable (or at least pass through the mic) even if the rear jacks could handle that.

Might keep them as my out-and-about pair for use with my phone/laptop. Unless someone wants to swap them for a nice keyboard? ;>

Apparently the Razer Electra is designed for gaming and music on the go. However I dare not dream myself wearing that thing in public.

Produces great sound and comfort though.

Gave it to my stepdad, he's having the time of his life with it being a music buff and all.

Cheers for the awesome prize!
