I really hope this bites Razer in the arse. They can do one as far as I am concerned.

I agree with you, the only reason to waste money and resources maintaining a cloud server to save mouse/keyboard profiles is to data-mine customers, sell any info you collect to 3rd parties. You would think someone at Razer will point out how bad of a PR move this is.

After my Naga died (AGAIN) I said screw it and collected on my squaretrade warranty. They paid me out $73 for it + $5 more for allowing them to pay me with an Amazon.com giftcard.

I took that loot and bought me a Logitech g600. It's an awesome mouse, and the new drivers work really great for it! They don't require you to be online either.

I honestly had to check to make sure I didn't oversleep and wake up April 1st, 2013. This is ridiculous...we now have DRM on hardware. mad.gif

Razer has released "Legacy Drivers" as of November 7th. I uninstalled Synapse 2.0 and installed the Legacy Drivers on my Windows 8 system. Not only do the drivers work on my system, but they also include the classic tray-icon with customization options. Furthermore, the EULA does not have the tracking clause that appeared in the Synapse EULA.

Only for older mice (in your case deathadder 3.5) which was established already. There are NO drivers besides synapse for any new model mouse. Unfortunately frown.gif

First time poster, also found my way here via GiantBomb and Boingboing.

This is incredibly shady of them; but I've gotten around it by logging in once then blocking all outbound traffic for the software and the updater. It's not perfect but it will get the job done until I've burned this mouse into the ground through usage. Maybe I'm teaching y'all to suck eggs but here's a link to block it with Windows 7 Firewall. If you're on XP I think you're out of luck unless you use a third-party firewall. The applications you'll want to block are RzSynapse.exe and RzUpdateManager.exe:

Block it after you've logged in once and you'll be good to go; my Synapse software shows a red icon permanently now with no loss of function, aside from cutting off Razer's snooping eyes and lust for data.

Well, it confirms myself to continue to buy Logitech. :/

Holy crap, I was just about to pick up a Naga tonight after work.

G600 it is.

Razer fyi: you guys are retarded.

This is being addressed right now on the main thread regarding this matter. A RazerCult popped in there and provided this link regarding Synapse 2.0

Synapse 2.0 works OFFLINE

One of the biggest misunderstandings is the equation of Synapse 2.0 to always-on DRM. It’s a popular notion that anything requiring a login has DRM included in it, and this misconception is one that easily gets the community fired up. In this case however, it’s incorrect.

Once registered, Synapse 2.0 works offline and never needs to be online again. So basically, a user creates an account, saves initial settings, and if there’s no internet connection, it doesn’t matter - settings are saved on the client PC and are not synced to the cloud. Synapse 2.0 works offline.

We understand that this still might be confusing. We will continue to take steps to clarify and to ensure that our users have the correct information (see below).

Edited to add since I'm still the last post:

There are many games and products that require registration sign up or product keys in order to play or use a product and this I could live with because I already do with many different accounts. At least now the option exist to do it offline afterward.

The current products coming out by Razer Ouroboros and Taipei are solid mice from the reviews and shouldn't be held back by software. I'm glad we got the response we were looking for regarding at the very least the 'option'. smile.gif
