Im sure the only reason they require a log in and be online to use a mouse is to data mine from their customers. There really should be a big outcry about this

Razer is the worst POS company ever. After owning their Imperator and Naga, and briefly owning the blackwidow garbage, and having to deal with their 'support', I will never EVER use their products or recommend their overpriced cheaply made crap.

Forget the naga, get the Logitech G600. Its a better mouse, better built, better software, better ergonomics, better price, better layout, higher DPI. In every possible way measurable, an equivalent Logitech mouse will stomp over a Razer.

Razer has been making gimmicky under-performing products with terrible build quality for ages, yet people keep buying it for reasons beyond my understanding.

I know people that periodically buy razer mice because they break so fast.

I mean... if it breaks in a few months of NORMAL use, why in the god's name would you go and buy ANOTHER same mouse.

I've bought razer products before, I've tested a lot of them and so far they haven't convinced me.

I left Logitech because of setpoint. I have been happy with my deathadder(s) and Mamba. Logitech mice tend to hurt my hands on extended usage. But this is pretty much unacceptable.

Ya I have to use the archived drivers because I can't play half the games I play at anything higher than 900 dpi. This is my last razer product though because of Synapse.

I will just throw my 2 cents in.

I recently bought a deathadder 3.5g mouse. I was told I would need the Synapse software to use my mouse, I thought ok must be how they do drivers now. Then I realised I needed an account, again no problem I thought. Then the problems started. I had mouse lag in which it would stutter and misbehave as well as the LED lights would flicker on the mouse. Looking around the internet I found it was a common complaint and could be fixed by updating the firmware I did that to no avail.

I then put in a support ticket to figure out what was going wrong with my mouse. A guy comes back with all these troubleshooting suggestions, having followed those and got no results I asked why do I need to use Synapse 2.0 is there no proper drivers any more and why do I need to use this bloatware software package. Low and behold on the next email some proper drivers turned up with a normal config utility and best of all no login or mouse problems.

The only thing I can suggest is to ask for proper drivers and ditch this synapse thing altogether. The Mice are good Mice its just the current driver platform is pure crap.

I have found more and more companies now doing this bloatware driver platform and it has to stop we do not need flashy gfx or cloud storage for a mouse driver let alone any driver. all we ask is for a driver that performs well and does what it says it will do.

No Tears Please It's A Waste Of Good Suffering.
