    It's a year later, still no mac build for synapse3. WTF.

    My goliathus chroma mat either gets to look out of sync or black. At least the keyboard I got works (it uses an older version).

    Just wanted to say I find two major faults with your logic:

    1) If the only "real" gaming experience is on Windows, and Razer shares these views that's super elitist and frankly I'll walk out on them right now. No one defines what a gamer is, and frankly I'd consider this response to genuine questions about a lack of communication about support sad and apathetic
    2) You might wanna actually do your research. Razer has been around for quite some time and has frankly fallen well behind in terms of quality. Am I really supposed to believe that a company who makes peripherals for every major console and it's own line of gaming laptops and two generations of gaming phones can't support them or communicate to their own existing customers as well as Steelseries, who not only has been in business for a shorter amount of time, but tells customers what works with their products and maintains relative parity with their software on both platforms (I would recommend them to anyone who made the mistake of buying paperweights- I mean accessories for their Mac from this company)?

    Razer's motto should actually be quantity over quality from the state of affairs

    Sorry but can you give me directions to the nearest SteelSeries store... oh wait, there isn't one. surprisingly enough razer is opening another store in las Vegas tomorrow. And if you think about it, 4 years is nothing in terms of business. oh while I'm at it I think I should buy a SteelSeries phone. or actually maybe ill buy a Logitech or corsair phone. Oh wait... Yet again, I cant. Razer is really a great brand that has done great things in such a small amount of time. And also, Corsair and Logitech were both before razer, and to me, it looks like razer has caught up. and you also said that razer cant support their products. Should I send you a copy of the code for legacy or for synapse 3 BETA? because lets not forget that it is in beta. And regarding your comment about the quality of razer, I personally use their products and love them much better than both Corsair and Logitech and Even SteelSeries, and trust me, SteelSeries is pretty good. And for one last thing, you realize that your are arguing and hating on razer on a website called razer insider, right?

    UPDATE:
    I went back and looked at my old post just to make sure. My exact words were
    "But you do have to remember that they are a relatively new company (new for a business)".
    I was absolutely correct in saying that because in a business sense, they are relatively new. so in your exact words " You might wanna actually do your research". or at the very least learn to read what people say correctly.

    I love it when people can't just admit their wrong, but sure go ahead. If anything I'd find it more weird that someone who has no interest in gaming on MacOS is on a thread about the subject, but okay. I've made my point, you've made yours, and it still doesn't matter because it's not like support or even an official statement of whether I can burn my Razer products yet or not will come anytime soon. But yes I will check out your Razer store on the way to burn them if you want.

    Well you see I first came on this thread to see what it was about. Because I visit most threads and comment on them I feel like it. So when I came on to this thread and saw all the toxicity on here I tried backing razer Up. But hey if you plan on burning them, you might as well sell them instead on eBay or something, because someone who appreciates the brand will buy them. But you are right in saying that razer isn't perfect. I personally don't like the pricing, I feel it is a bit overpriced but then again I put up with it because I love the brand. But if you truly hate Razer this much then go ahead and burn your products I guess.

    Razer is a company headed / main goal is to support gaming, which is mostly on Windows.
    - So if Synapse was released for Mac it wouldn't really get downloads, well because they didn't release it in the first few months.

    But i still hope they make one for MacOS, that would be nice!

    (Note: This is constructive criticism so don't come to me and say bad stuff)

    I have been using Mamba Firefly Hyperflux thing for a year now hoping that there will be a synapse 3 update for Mac. But no. Nothing. And no, i am not gonna install bootcamp just so i can install it and adjust my mouse and mousepad in Windows and switch it back.

    If Razer gave up on Mac users, they should just make it clear they will not provide any further support to Mac in the future instead of just dragging us along. I am officially done with Razer after years of being their fan. Looks like they just don't give a shit about us Mac users. Just say the word.

    Then sell your overpriced mac and buy a better computer that runs windows. I am almost certain that with how much mac charges for their computers, you could find one that is even better for half the cost.

    There are those who care more than just cheap price and performance...I’m not gonna start that PC VS MAC talk with you here.

    Besides you are missing the point.

    I was given a Nari Ultimate for my birthday. I just want it to work with my macbook.

    So, when is this happening for macOS? We could really use it on our Macs. Many of us love your products but many of us are just programmers, not gamers and a lot of programming happens on macOS.

    or I can sell these overpriced periphery Razer hardware and buy something that actually works?
    and I like computer, that is stable and works. deal?

    honestly, I had to use Windows computer in the past two weeks ... and it was an utter nightmare. one of the apps I use, needed ages to start (other two regularly used apps were okay and started normally). installation of apps/programmes took much longer than it does on Mac (talking about same apps/programmes). and, as said, I do not use Razer mice for gaming but for work. and since it is written on the box, that it works on Mac as well, I thought this actually works, but unfortunately, more or less it doesn't.

    but this is not the point of my post today. one thing I wanted to give a try in this time with Win laptop was Razer Synapse 3. it's still far from perfect, but it was so nice to use my periphery hardware without any hickups. it just works and does not lag the whole system ... why can't we, using Apple devices, have the same experience? in the end, we did pay same amount of money as did the Windows users ...

    as said before, I was thinking about switching to Logitech and giving them a try, too. And I did (I do need mouse that actually does what it is supposed to), and Logitech is far ahead. yes, Razer Basilisk and Naga Trinity are way superior (keyboards are there there), but the software behind it works. and is updated regularly. and this is all I ask of Razer. to provide software that works and makes my mice usable.

    Ok I can totally see where you are coming from. It helps when people post their problems with the app in a nice way and aren't super demanding. So props you on being so patient. I agree that if they say they support apple then they need to give it more time and energy. I just get fired up when I see so much Hate toward razer on a razer gaming forum. But yet again props to you for stating your issues in a calm and kind way.

    Adding my support to this forum. I chatted Razer when I got my Huntsman elite keyboard. I knew Synapse wasn’t available for Mac, but support assured me Macs’ version was being worked on and would come out eventually. It’s been months since that. It’s just completely ridiculous, it doesn’t take even close to this long to work on a mac vs Windows version. I don’t understand the hold up

    I guess us Mac users just need to migrate on over to SteelSeries. I bought one of their mice a couple years ago and it’s awesome. Can’t even change the rgbs on my Chroma keyboard anymore...

    Well, I have a solution for those of us who need to run Synapse 3 on OSX. It is neither elegant, nor cheap.
    It is however, functional.

    Parallels for Mac does run the software and works fine.
    It has a 14 day free trial if you want to see for yourself.

    For those who don't know what Parallels is, a brief description.
    Parallels is a virtual machine type software for Mac OS. If you already have a Boot Camp install it can use that, but if you don't, the initial install can download the latest Windows ISO and install a virtual machine instance.

    Here is the problem. Parallels, is not free, as of the time I write this, it's like $70 US. You don't really ever have to pay for the Windows license if you aren't doing anything more than installing Synapse 3, but you read the T&C and decide for yourself. That is like another $100 or so USD depending on version.

    Like I said. It is not in any way an elegant solution, but, it is functional until Razer releases a Mac version for the software.

    I too own the mamba (wireless), huntsman elite, the mousepad and the speaker. Synapse 2 picks up only the speaker, not even the mousepad. AND MOUSEPAD HAS NO BUTTONS! This is so frustrating, all my Razer devices now running on different lighting. Razer needs to release Synapse for Mac!
