Everyone on OC hates Razer and the synapse software. There wouldn't be much discussion other than circlejerking about how bad of a company razer is.
It's absolutely true though and this is coming from someone who has used many Razer mice in the past and still uses 2 Razer products to this day (Blackwidow Tournament Edition keyboard & Orbweaver keypad).
Whenever either Synapse 2 or Synapse 3 are installed, aim feels SUBSTANTIALLY worse and sluggish as all hell. The software also introduces all sorts of crapware and virtual devices to your Device Manager (in order to make all of it's RGB, macros and all that stuff work properly I suppose).
The instant any trace of Synapse related crap is removed from the computer, aim instantly returns back to normal and all is well again.
Now Roach's rambling about how it PERMANENTLY renders a mouse useless for the rest of eternity is absolute nonsense lmao.. don't get me wrong. All it takes is removal of the software to get back to normal.
The sad part is that all of the cool, nifty little features that you would get a Razer product for in the first place ALL relies on Synapse software for the most part... custom RGB, macros, all that crap. So what I ended up doing is giving all that up and just use the Blackwidow and Orbweaver in their stock forms (it just runs the default Spectrum Cycling RGB mode) and all the function keys still work properly... pretty much all you need to play games is still there. You just lose the customizability factor and quite frankly, I rather lose that useless crap and be able to aim properly.
