Summary: I really wanted to like this mouse but it has caused me so much trouble i cant stand it.
Pros: Its fits nice in the hand and is pretty customizable.
Cons: Razer Synapse, i like the idea but i have had so many problems with software, crashed my computer, cant switch between wired and wireless mode with ought a hassle. Drivers crash constantly, its almost like a virus bad.
Pros: Comfortable mouse, variety of colors, cool looking
Cons: Razer Synapse is horrible. You are forced to create a Razer profile and connect to the internet to change any settings on your mouse. Not only that, but there's no freakin apply button. You just have to sit and wait or totally disconnect and reconnect your mouse any time you want to change anything. How moronic do you have to be to make a program like that? I won't be buying another Razer product until Razer Synapse is removed as a necessity for their products (old dr...
Summary: I miss my Logitech G9 mouse. A bit limited on a mass of buttons but I used it for over 3 years without a single issue.
Pros: While it works its incredible!!!
Cons: It doesn't work very long!!! They die very quickly. Trouble started in about 3 months. (I never used the wireless functionality) First you will start having poor tracking. Then, the mouse will loose all x,y movement, then the eye will die. I returned it to the store three times, then they told me I have to deal with the manufacturer. Razer customer support will blame you.
Cons: You would think for the price these things would be able to last more than a year. After about 10 months the right click stopped registering. It's basically useless for gaming now. Very upset with this product. Going back to Logitech.
Summary: Avoid razer, or at least google before you buy
Pros: Sharp design, looks great, color options are really interesting
Cons: Immediately upon setting up the naga it began to stutter, the mouse would stop suddenly and then pop into place in the direction I was moving. Being new I thought this was a driver issue, or poor placement of the dock. Contacted razer support and was advised to clean the mouse lazer, and try in on another computer which resulted in no change. Updated synapse, reverted to older config program for the mouse and nothing. Later found on-line that this is a rather large pr...
Summary: Razer should really needs to hire capable quality assurance personnel.
Cons: This mouse is poorly designed both hardware and software. Hardware: It's not comfortable, regardless which "claw grip" is used. Buttons are cheap. Unnecessary junk included in packaging. Rubber feet start wearing down immediately, even if using a gaming pad. Despite 5600 DPI, mouse is sluggish and inaccurate, regardless what DPI-polling setting is used. It's sad that a wireless, non-gaming, 4 year old mouse, can out-perform this mouse. Key mapping is linked to keyboar...
Summary: The numpad on the side seemed like a great idea, but wound up just being really, really annoying. When I began to get even halfway decent at using the numpad on the mouse, it made it more confusing to use any other mouse, like on a laptop. At the same time, I found myself accidentally pressing those numpad buttons all the time if my grip on the mouse tightened, because they're right under your thumb; there is no good "neutral" resting place for your thumb, you are...
Pros: Pretty lights. Holds a charge well. Middle mouse wheel has good action, never got loose; Primary L & R buttons have also held up well, no feeling of compression or unresponsiveness. Terrible, terrible connectivity issues it shipped with were mostly resolved with an eventual firmware upgrade.
Cons: Gah, where to start. I bought this maybe a year and a half ago, and immediately I had to start making excuses for it. I'd invested $130; I wanted it to be worth the money. It was not. I should have returned it as soon as I started having trouble. For starters, the wireless connectivity was just awful. The primary reason one buys wireless mouse is to use it without the cord; I had to keep it plugged in most of the time. Constantly freezing, disconnecting, having to cyc...
Summary: On the off chance you actually contact Razer Support for some assistance, you'll get no more than 1 reply per day from their 'Tech Team' which constantly has to 'escalate' things to some higher tier, presumably because it takes database architect level knowledge to send out some software patches. Once you get these patches, and you know, attempt to install them you might end up with a completely bricked mouse and/or dock making it (I know, impossible right?
Pros: It has buttons, and lots of them so you can press them and do things. At least that's what you would think, and only when it's not being as glitchy as Max Headroom.
Cons: They are plentiful. In wireless mode, it lags horribly, sometimes shuts off altogether, the cursor will move randomly even with the slightest of movements. Get ready for an incredibly frustrating time trying to tweak settings in vain as you attempt to explore every avenue of getting this mouse to just 'work'. The latest drivers have some junky 'synapse' software which if you search online users galore will warn it's the mouse equivalent of bloatware that bogs your per...
Another failed razer product (right after warranty up)
Jason H., Newegg
3 September 2013
Summary: Never again razer, never again. Your quality has slipped terribly in the last few years I am going to have to break up with you.
Pros: This was pretty nice new. it worked great for about 9 months then started acting up. It required the firmware to be re-flashed every few months until it was out of warranty then it simply failed and wouldn't take a firmware flash.
Cons: Dead, requires constant firmware flashing, razor support told me that's normal.
