My entire gaming team has had both the 2010's and the 2013 A40s and not a single one of us has had a problem from our ASTROs yet, you need to take in consideration that ASTRO sells hundreds of thousands of these and these reviews are only from the ones who just have something bad to say about them. People USUALLY only leave a review due to the fact that they didn't like them or did not know how to operate them correctly. It would be one of the best purchases you would ever make, don't listen to other people IMO, just because someone says leap off the cliff because it is the right thing to do doesn't mean you have to do it though. Think for yourself and don't worry about the dumb reviews and do your own review, if you don't like them, take them back. Hassle free.
