New logitech mice use Logitech Gaming Software, which is far, far better than what Setpoint ever was.

I got a 30% off coupon from Logitech for two products, and the offer was a single day only. I ended up buying the Logitech G600. I already have Gigabyte Aivia Osmium as my main Keyboard, but I did consider getting the G710+ for 100€ too with the coupon (preorder). I don't really care about some small difference in switches even if the browns might be better than reds for me (actually, from the reviews I can judge that the G710+ looks worse and has worse build quality than the osmium), but the fact that I could have had G710+, G600 and G13 all running from a single profile - that would've been a killer.

However, if the mouse doesn't fit your hand, that will be biggest limiting factor for you, of course.

Contacting support has been pretty useless so far they dont want to budge on anything since they dont think theres a problem with their software. I argued there was no disclosure about needing to activate the mouse online before hand, and that they didnt have a right to monitor my usage whenever I was connected to the internet, but it fell on deaf ears.

I think the only way they will change is if enough people let them know what theyre doing is wrong:

Well I decided to set up so auto profile switching. I did that little with my blackwidow, but not much.
I notice now in Synapse 2.0 it also forces the game to minimize when you load it. Extra step there as I have to click the game back up.
Some games I recall don't like you alt-tabbing around, so another fail here.
Nothing fancy

also my synapse 2.0 software loads fine without and internet connection.

That's awesome. Has anyone tried this on the Naga 2012 yet confirm it works with macros?


Truly sad to be forced to use Synapse to obtain the options one already paid for within the product hardware. It would have been better served if they provided cloud storage as an 'option'. I do agree that being forced to the cloud or any services in order to obtain a purchased product features is wrong especially when that info is being used and profited from.

Threads being derailed a bit by Razer haters who take this opportunity to say 'I"m never going to buy another Razer product" when they never did or already made that decision prior to this news. tongue.gif

Boils down to Razer still has some great mice and software didn't change that but Razer will lose revenue by those who object to cloud storage that's being shared to who knows. Dumb move on Razer's part because whether one agrees or disagrees it still alienates possible purchases from those who object. On the flip side it's hard for some to understand those who don't feel threatened and doesn't mind Synapse and what it offers for what they give up.

After two years of owning a Mamba which I recently handed down to the kids it's still going strong. The DeathAdder has proven to be old faithful for a lot of people and is a solid mouse. Razer sales will determine the outcome of Synapse longevity be rest assured. What that outcome will be may take a quarter before it surfaces on paper for the bean counters and corporate to make a decision. rolleyes.gif

I asked them if there were going to be any offerings that did NOT use synapse and they informed me, that in fact all future razer products would be synapse 2.0 only (and they have been since the naga hex'ish timeframe). Not only that, they're going to retrofit it to all legacy products. They want everything running on synapse even old hardware.

I told them I wouldn't be purchasing any of their products until they abandon this bloated, invasive, gimmick-ware.
