Thread Starter 
Gonna make this quick, interested in hearing your thoughts, and I don't really want to reiterate what's been stated in other threads.

I've recently confirmed the Deathadder 2013 saves DPI internally. I'm going to assume (for people who have two Windows based machines) it saves button configuration internally as well.

Ok, so we can confirm that Deathadder 2013 has internal memory...so they HAVEN'T removed internal memory.

Next up: based on my experience on the Mac side, I've used Razer Synapse before 2.0 was released, and I've recently tried the Deathadder 2013 with Synapse 2.0 installed.

Now, quick bit of info that will help: for Mac users, it's been known for awhile that Synapse 1.0 was pretty damn buggy, as it would reset the sensitivity in Mac OSX to 1. This would be like Synapse on Windows setting the sensitivty from the magical "6/11" setting many people use, to "1/11", Same idea, PCs and Macs are way more similar than people realize =)

Here's where my train of though is running: Razer has claimed that Synapse 1.0 uses a new architecture (as quoted here: "other features that we wanted to include, such as inter‐device drivers and profile exchanging, were not possible with the Synapse 1.0 architecture.") So since it's possible with Synapse 2.0, then we can infer it's a new architecture, i.e., different code or something. However, Synapse 2.0 has the SAME EXACT BUGS as Synapse 1.0.

Finally: I can't think of a single gamer who has wished for cloud support for their device, especially considering all mice had onboard memory, or switches for settings on the bottom.


*TL;DR:*

So to summarize:

1) Razer claims that Synapse 2.0 products don't use internal memory, but obviously there is SOME memory inside of the Deathadder 2013

2) Razer claims that Synapse 2.0 is a brand new architecture, and yet it strangely has some of the exact same bugs as Synapse 1.0

3) Razer will require a Synapse 2.0 account for every user who purchases a new Razer product from here out (assuming they want to configure it).

4) Nobody asked for cloud. Nobody was clamoring for more profiles or memory.


Conclusion: Razer Synapse 2.0 is just a re-skinned, standard issue update of the previous Synapse software, but they want to data mine (since it provides an additional source of revenue), so they arbitrarily made the whole login thing a requirement. Then they tack on cloud support (since they're using servers for all of this anyway) to provide a justification for the whole thing.

Thoughts? Kinda interesting if you ask me...or maybe I'm just crazy. =D

Doesn't save button configurations. Stored locally in the drivers.

Shame. Seems like the vitriol flung towards Razer is well deserved. I've heard some awful, awful things about Synapse. I don't understand what was wrong with onboard memory on their mice. That was one of the few things I'd say that Razer mice would legitimately be superior in.

Nice. I have a HE-500 myself.

Edit: wrong model typo. Had HE-5 long ago; had problems, now have HE-500.
