They want you to:

• Uses your hardware, at the owners expense (wear / tear & electricity bills) that;
• Generates additional profit for Razer and in exchange they will give you;
• Currency which is only applicable for their products at a rate which you will never be able to actually obtain anything

Shove it back where it belongs.

And others might argue "It's optional". You don't have to download this if you don't want to.

The issue here is that one day, this will probably be automatically running in the background. Sure... it's optional now but for all you know, they're already doing this.

The first comments in this thread already stir doubt... and for good reason.
its only optional for now...... it would eventually be forced upon like everyone else.

who else makes you sign up in order to use their peripherals as advertised.... bloody synapse
