    (this might have been asked, but my search didn't find anything - sorry if it's a duplicate)

    I downgraded back to Synapse 2 because 3 was missing a feature I really need. (the ability to change lighting when changing keymap profiles). Now my Naga Trinity mouse isn't recognized.

    I can see my keyboard and mousepad in Synapse 2, but not my mouse. Am I missing something? Does the Naga Trinity only work with Synapse 3?

    Since Synapse 3 is still technically in Beta, it seems strange that I'd be forced to use it.

    All four "new" mice that have been released during the Synapse 3 Beta (Lancehead, Basilisk, Naga Trinity and Abyssus Essential) are incompatible with Synapse 2.

    Razer CAN make it compatible, they just chose not to.

    For Example, Tartarus V2 hardware(On sale since Dec 2017), at least in the sense of key mapping I surmise, could be compatible with Synapse 2 with relative ease.
    Yet Razer forced customers who bought this product to use an INCOMPLETE Synapse 3 software.

    The RESPONSIBLE choice Razer should have made was either to:

    A.) Don't sell the hardware until the software to support it was actually stable and working as intended, with at minimum the same Keymapping/Macro feature set that's already supported in the Synapse 2 software.


    B.) Update the Synapse 2 software to recognize and work with purchased newer devices (at least for the key mapping), UNTIL the Synapse 3 software was in a usable state.

    Synapse 3 hasn't been in a usable state. I and others still do not use Synapse 3 because of this, and I've been sitting on a Tartarus V2 for 3 months now without being able to use it.

    Please explain to us how that situation is appropriate.

    I agree with everything you are saying 100%. Personally, I am disappointed. I don't plan to purchase any more Razer products until they commit to some kind of clear Roadmap for their products that rely on Synapse software.

    Thanks Grimmwor, honestly I appreciate the answer! Any subsequent sarcasm is directed at Razer and not you :)

    Dear Razer,

    If you're going to advertise a mouse as "working with Chroma", maybe you want to make it clear that "working" isn't quite accurate. If the only drivers available for a device are in Beta, it's not quite "working".

    Returning for now... maybe next time...
