    I have a setup of Blackwidow Essential 2019, Deathadder Expert (same as 2013) and Electra V2 USB. So, until I bought the keyboard I just used the older Synapse 2.0 and was fine with it, but the keyboard doesn't work in Synapse 2.0 (while mouse and headset don't work in Synapse 3). Because of that now I need to have both versions of Synapse running if I want to customize something, and it's not really convenient. So, will the Synapse 3 support older devices (like Electra V2 USB and Deathadder Expert) in the future? I don't really want to upgrade everything just because of software, gear is not even that old.

    Wondering the same thing, been waiting for my Kraken 7.1 to get Synapse 3 support as well.
    Synapse 2 doesn't remember the settings and often doesn't even recognize the headphones.
  4. I bought my Orbweaver and a Blackwidow keyboard less than 6 months ago - so disappointed to realise that they are actually old technology at modern day prices … so wish I could return them ….

    Yeah I wouldn't recommend buying Razer peripherals unless they fully support Synapse 3.
    But I'm done with Razer. The Kraken I own deliver good sound but have poor build quality and even worse software. The Kraken 7.1 Chroma V1, not the V2 btw.

    Still have a Kraken 7.1 Chroma v1 here. Works perfect but still not available in Synapse v3 and V2 just isn't working anymore. headphone still gives great sound but can't adjust anything anymore if I needed/wanted to.
    Shame on Razer that they still don't have all (legacy) devices migrated to the nw version.

    Coming back here after a while, I thought "time has passed, Synapse 3 had a lot of updates, and they most certainly added the Razer Naga Epic Chroma to the list of supported devices, but no they didn't.
    The Naga Chroma is supported, but not the Epic version, which is hard to understand considering they're pretty much the same mouse.
    Since I don't plan to buy a new mouse anytime soon, I'll have to stick with the old synapse software instead of use the new version 3, which is a bit sad.

    I was considering some new Razer peripherals over the past week as my old ones served me well (and I do like the snakes). In anticipation I decided to try out Synapse 3 and now I'm admittedly second guessing sticking with this brand, sadly. Only the keyboard shows up, no mouse or audio. When I look into it the situation evidently has been going on for years. :frown_:

    The software is also like half a gig which is alarming for what it does.

    On the Mac side, Catalina cuts support for 32-bit software, killing Synapse 2 on that platform. Razer's help document essentially states there is no intention to support the Mac any longer and will stick to Synapse 3 on Windows moving forward.

    I'm not sure why they'd just ruin everything like that, but I see I'm late to the party.

    I'm also late to the party. And really happy that I spent half a Covid-19 stimulus payment on Razer gear, to find out that literally only my Basilisk mouse will work with Synapse 2 on my Mac.. which constantly crashes, loses it's saved configurations, and generally feels like a bit of a disappointment.

    Guess I should've bought a gaming PC before buying accessories, but what can I say, I'm a sucker for the quartz vibe. :oops::frown_:
  13. you will be fine with other brands, unless Razer fixes their driver problems and doesn't spend time on implementing nice, but useless things like Alexa
