Yeah, I thought about Razor maybe as an upgrade alternative, but now I won't even consider them at all. Logitech all the way for me it seems. My MX518 is still kicking and always in use smile.gif

Yeah they used to give you CDs with the drivers on them but now you have to use Synapse 2.0. It can be nice when doing clean installs because it saves your user profiles, but forcing it on people was quite disappointing.

Now they're using it as DRM? Just pathetic. Who is going to "pirate" drivers for a mouse/ keyboard if they can just download it from their website for free. Plus there's no reason for this in the first place. If you don't own a Razer product, why would you need the drivers? thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

As a razer naga user, this disturbs me.

On one hand, I'm always connected to the internet so it wasn't an issue. I also loved the convenience of having my profile save on the cloud, thus making it so I don't have to reconfigure all my macros and whatnot whenever I reformat.

But now this... spyware?

Yea, when this mouse finally breaks I'll search for a different brand with as close to the same amount of buttons.

The new Synapse software has "cloud" support thats why you need to log on to save and load your profiles.

here is a link to the old software no cloud storage and runs standalone

http://www.razersupport.com/index.php?_m=downloads&_a=viewdownload&downloaditemid=744

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

This is why I sold my Naga and went with SteelSeries.... I don't need to install anything on my Sensei to customize it at all. Razer will never again get my support and will never buy any of their products again.

As if peddling cheaply made, easily broken crap and poor customer service were not enough of a reason to avoid them.

Maybe they're worried people are going to pirate their mice using 3D printers rolleyes.gif

Yeah, so I was using an Epic a few days at work because the macro buttons automated like 40% of the entries I have to do. The connection is sketchy enough that the software hangs while doing anything. Hangs as in, stops, locks up and takes 10-15 seconds to resume functioning. I don't understand why Razer needs to update the cloud settings in real time... The idea that you need a constant internet connection for a mouse is just crazy. I've stopped using the mouse and don't plan on using it further. It is not worth the trouble. All it proves to me is that Razer is not capable of making good products. I will not be buying Razer products in the future.
