Same thing here, but with the DeathAdder 3.5G Black. They tried forcing me to run Synapse, but I just got the legacy drivers. The mouse woks fine and I have the Razer control panel to set/change/save profiles and settings.

You should give the old Naga drivers a test... I think the Naga 2012 is nothing but some "cosmetic" thing. The HW inside should be the same.

Actually I think people have tried the legacy drivers with the 2012 version and they didn't work. If they do, it would probably be the last mouse they made that would support legacy drivers because the naga hex, Ouroboros and Taipan don't even have any legacy drivers. They were all made after synapse and have never had any other drivers. It'll be this way going forward (including the new deathadder 4g when it comes out) unless they change their minds.

Seems like the only Razer product that isn't a victim of Synapse is the good old Abyssus.

Well that does make sense. They even removed the onboard memory on their newer mice.

False.

Rather just not viable for use.

Eww.

I really didn't need another reason not to buy Razer again, but I guess now I've got one anyway.

I tried but they dont work unfortunately. Says "specific mouse" not detected. Looks like the Naga 2012 was built specifically for Synapse 2.0 as will all future mice.

I was going to guess English was not your first language, then I thought of the possibility of you learning to be proficient in just one language. OCN Professional Initiative. Please read it.

I was actually considering getting a naga for an mmo, but this whole synapse thing is a huge turn off
