  1. This is going to be a rant because it's been bugging me for a while now...I feel like Synapse asks to update waaaaayyyy too often. It's so ANNOYING! I mean, it's just much can really change? It's mind-boggling! I literally think there must be some guy working at Razer who has an asshole boss who's telling him "Greg, we need to update Synapse EVERY WEEK...every goddamned week, alright? The kids love the updates! So update that thing every week or you're FIRED!"

    Also, the updates take forever! Is THIS the server I'm downloading the update from? Literally RIGHT NOW the damn thing is stuck at 14% (wow, 15% now after 5 minutes at 14%!)...I could probably download an HD movie before this thing finishes.

    And NO, this isn't a service request or troubleshooting don't delete it as one...this is a freaking wake-up call. I've been a Razer fan and customer for YEARS, but if you continue to annoy me with your stupidly frequent, nagging, and time-consuming updates the next mouse or headset I buy will NOT be a Razer product.

    This seems to be a different experience for different people - I can't even remember the last time my Synapse updated, and I do have automatic updates turned and I have to approve them to begin. I might get one a month or so, and usually they're finished in under 2 minutes.

    Perhaps there's something else that interferes with your Synapse and it's ability to update, or your internet connection to their servers? Maybe you *should* turn it into a support ticket and see if they have any ideas why it might be so slow and why you seem to get them so often??

    Same , I cant remember the last time I had a update.

    Have you tried reinstalling Synapse ? Because what you are experiencing is pretty strange.

    I generally ignore it until I have to update other things at the same time. It is annoying but it has become less frequent the past few years. I hope they change the GUI to match Cortex though, the black industrial style is a bit stale now.

    Usually when they prompt me saying theres and update, I tend to just ignore it lol. however I don't get it often.. Maybe you can try uninstalling Synapse and see what happens?

    Sometimes there are actually too many updates. I just look at the patch notes, if the update concerns me, i install the update, otherwise i leave it be

    I don't mind the update frequency, but I do mind about the quality of the updates.
