It only needs internet connection to initially setup your profile. I see no issue here especially with the enthusiast consumer in mind (its a gaming mouse for gods sake what gamer does not have access to internet). The only issue I can see is that they did not list having an internet connection as mandatory on the box somewhere.

Everybody hates razer. Always has. Everyone loves to jump on the bandwagon and bash on their stuff yet they are still one of the biggest companies in what they do. If you don't like them buy Logitech. Go figure.
For any artificial requirement you build into a product... there better be a reason for it. I don't care how many good things a mouse could do with internet because A MOUSE has no need for internet whatsoever, as the task its meant to do includes, in no way, the use of internet.
So, you are truly naive users. Razer has implemented the crappiest idea I've yet to read about computer peripherals, specially for a product that doesn't need internet for nothing. Also, storing profiles in the cloud?!?!?!?!?!??! Who would EVER use that?!?!?!?! Most useless feature they could have put on a mouse, and the fact that it requires internet to function with the up-do-date drivers is... well... I'm speech-less.
I'll make sure never to touch any Razer product at all... and its funny because at this day and age I'm using mice that require no software at all, pure plug and play mouse and if I ever need some macros I just jump on autohotkeys and be done with it; but to know that some drivers are so crappy that they require internet... no, thank you.
I hope the company goes down.. or a lot of people are fired up there...
