I'm pleading with you razer, give us some regular drivers for these mice. I've got a naga hex that I just love the shape of, but I can't use it because your software is trash.

Synapse would be fine if the driver itself worked and allowed profile storage, but that isn't the case.

Razer does a good job with hardware for the most part. (They also cut corners here and there, but who doesn't?)

I'll agree that their ID is horrible on previous designs. (Taipan looks great all around though) Just sucks for hardcore gamers since the 9800 based rom smooths out movement.

Good luck with Synapse when it gains more popularity and their servers are getting compromised.

I really don't get what the benefit to this cloud storage is when you could simply store your profiles/settings on the mouse itself and have them wherever you take your mouse to and no matter which OS you use it with.

that solution can be pain in the arse if you're in decent lan (which means - offline, default ingame server..no need for connection beacause everyone of the players want have the same lowest ever latency), also if those server will be overloaded or not responding

Fail, fail, fail.

I've been talking with razer support about the synapse situation and I was informed that the software 'kinda' works offline. As long as you connect to their servers, set up an account, log in and save your profiles once, if you don't connect to the servers after that it's supposed to remember your profiles somehow. They said as long as you have "Stay Logged In" checked, the mouse would use whatever profiles it had cached to your computer.

It doesn't keep my computer from loading up to a splash screen that crashes synapse and says "Please connect a razor synapse 2.0 device" which it does about every other time I reboot. But at least it's something.

They also said "it is likely that we will not have alternative drivers to our new released products and they will all be Synapse enabled. I apologize for the inconvenience." So it looks like Synapse is it for future products.


Hopefully in time the software will get better and more reliable without the overhead and other performance issues (ie the wonky acceleration, crashing, high response time, lag when switching cpi or profiles and the fact that it will update whenever an update comes out, doesn't matter if you're in a game or not). It can only get better I suppose.

In Razer's defense, I have little doubt about that they will develope and improve Synapse into near perfection. Afterall, it is the software they want to use for all their products. I only wish they will make it really userfriendly, like allowing an offline mode without penalties and such.

Used this mouse for several hours in games. Here's my initial impressions, which will likely evolve as I continue using it:

The body is awesome. Its shape is definitely not as tall as DA, especially in the center. This mouse definitely doesn't seem like a palm mouse. It's much better suited for finger grip (mine) and claw. The construction is fantastic.

The coating on the top is not as grippy as the sides, but still has a little more texture to it than the DA on top. The side grips feel interesting. It's rubbery but there's not as much resistance as one you'd find on a Logitech for example. The texture on the sides is top notch.

The left and right click have a more tactile feel than the DA, but it's probably due to simple wear and tear. I really hope it doesn't get the same double click issue later on. The mouse wheel is definitely the best one I've used out of all the mouses I've had. The detents are nice and grippy, and pressing it doesn't take too much force.

The side buttons are set a little lower than I'd like, but in general this is a pretty flat mouse. However, my natural thumb position is always sitting on the side buttons, not the side grip. There is a shiny smooth coating on it that I think will wear out pretty quick (which is my guess). They feel ok, though it is kind of small and flat. If it was slightly taller it would be awesome.

The sensor is something I'm kind of worried about. I'm using a Steelseries I-2 (blue) and it doesn't seem like tracking is an issue but there seems to be a very tiny bit of input lag. It could all be in my head or it could be my glass mousepad. Lowering the LoD did seem to help.

Overall, I'd say it's a solid B+. This won't be the next Deathadder but it's sure to satisfy impress.

They make Razer synapse instead of in build memory to safe money i guess, am i right?
This software should be nice in theory ,but it isn't because after install you must still reboot.
So i don't see a point to get Razer Synapse in stead normal Razer driver it isn't faster for tournaments.
The only good part is you need 1 driver for multiple Razer products ,thats the only good reason for this driver in my opinion.

If you compare Razer Taipan with Steelseries Sensei i think you get more functionality for the money you pay from the Steelseries product.
And Sensei is even cheaper ,design wise its just preferences.
I like the Taipan more design wise if i see the videos on youtube ,but dont own one have the Sensei (logic) smile.gif

I hope someday they make a very high quality tiny fingertip mouse with omron switches,in built memory good grip sides and top,and a good sensor.
Then i dont have to buy any mouse anymore i dont care to pay high price like a Taipan price if everything is in good quality and not have to buy any other mouse because build quality survives 3 a 4 years.

but thats a dream thumb.gif
