Default Horrible Corsair QC: Is it just me?

Has anyone else had nothing but bad luck with Corsair? First, my 300R has the mic and headphone ports backwards, and now my K90 has a broken key. It surprises me that it seems that everyone else raves about them, and I get the one that slipped through the QC.

You honestly think every case is inspected? Think not.

I don't expect that, I just expect their manufacturing processes to be better than substandard. This is Corsair, we're talking about.

I see your an American and you guys always have retarded expectations about stuff. You got a flawed product out of how many? So what return it or live with it.

I very well may have retarded expectations abut stuff. But what are the odds that every product I have ever purchased from them was flawed? It would seem that more than a few are crap. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Needless to say, I won't be buying anything else Corsair.

Well, until I start seeing these kind of problems from Corsair that's definitely your loss....

Not to mention that my RMA through Corsair has been excellent.

I must have bad luck. I want to like them, but they're making it difficult.

Your making it difficult. Don't expect products to be flawless and you won't be disappointed.

I don't. But if Dell can make a no name keyboard that has lasted me 9 years, why can't Corsair?

Generally the lower end models have worse QC. Corsair would probably be happy to replace it for you and leave you a satisfied customer.
