I'm always especially wary of reviews when the reviewer copypastas straight from the manufacturer's product description. Phrases like "tournament-grade layout" and "exceptional comfort" make your review sound less than objective.

In a section specifically marked features. These are the features that Razer lists.

@Mathew McCurley:Right. The ones that the *manufacturer* lists, using the *manufacturer's* words. I'd like to see something more objective and less copypasta, given that the manufacturer's description is a *sales tool*, while this is supposed to be an objective review.Directly copying the list of features the manufacturer supplied makes me wonder what else the reviewer directly copied, is the problem. It's just not good journalism: even if it's the only thing they copied without expressing in their own words, it casts a bit of a shadow across the whole thing.

I would agree, but "copypasta" kind of makes me want to hit you.
