    My deathadder has by far proved to be the best mouse i ever used. I hope it doesn't die for years to come. Anyways, this is good news that deathadder gets an update and i am surely going to grab one for my new rig.

    Thanks for the info HH.

    I loved my Deathadder.
    But the new Razer drivers dont allow you to use the drivers features unless you are online.
    For this reason I have stopped recommending Razer.

    You can use older drivers ok still, but for new products needing a new driver, you are out of luck.

    That's not true. You can still use the Synapse 2.0 software without internet access if you already have a Razer acount. The only time you need the internet is if you dont have an account and are just setting one up.

    Processing is taking longer than expected. Youtube has been taking forever as of late to process videos.

    No problem. it's just one less thing to knock of the Razer FUD list.

    I got the 3.5G and when I came back at home to connect it ( ~one week ago or so ), I found out about the Razer Fiasco... Needless to say how bad I felt. Meanwhile I got it from a store far away and I didn't try to search if they gonna accept it back. Anyway, that's my last time I get a Razer product.

    And by the way, what's this type of articles? It reminds me Techpowerup; the giant billboard... Well, enough. Too much whining in a single comment.

    NiColaoS, I already made of an idiot of myself in this thread on the same topic, this should have let you avoid doing the same.
    Unless you have some other reason for disliking Razer?
    Check the posts above yours for clarity :)

    I don't get why people complain about having to be connected to the net, I agree it used to be slow and intrusive. But the latest synapse is very good, connects and gets your settings loaded fast, doesn't get in your face, updates your drivers automatically. Its a great idea really and hopefully continues to improve.

    The least of my worries. For some reason the scaling (interpolation) being used for DPI in the synapse drivers on the 3.5 DA feels weird and messed up compared to the old 450/900/1800/3500 settings.

    Here's to hoping it doesn't feel ****ed up on newer hardware that was build with synapse in mind.

    Because if that was the case, just when your internet goes down and you decide to play a game to pass the time, you might not get your mouse to work how you like.
    Or if you are gaming with a laptop on a train for example.
    ...

    But we dont have to worry :)
    I'm not enthused at having to create an account to use a mouse driver, but at least it isnt a deal breaker.

    Once registered, Synapse 2.0 works offline and never needs to be online again. So basically, a user creates an account, saves initial settings, and if there’s no internet connection, it doesn’t matter ‐ settings are saved on the client PC and are not synced to the cloud. Synapse 2.0 works offline. (this is a quote from Razer)

    I think I'll get that Synapse software for my Mamba.

    btw, if you have an older DeathAdder and want an upgrade, you may choose from new DeathAdder and Mamba. They have virtually the same shape. Mamba introduced small dents on the sides to make it easier to pick up, then the new DeathAdder followed the same path.

    If you want not-that super-expensive mouse, grab DA; if you want to pay a little extra for wireless and 2 extra buttons in LMB corner, grab Mamba. The only problems are price and that they're not as durable as the 1st DA.

    If you don't like the Synapse software/driver why not just use the old one? Last I checked it is still available for download.
