    I feel very conflicted about Razer's whole Synapse issue.

    I bought a Blackwidow chroma v2 for work recently and I should really have done research before I did.

    Sure storing your settings in the cloud may seem fancy, but how about those of us working in a company very concerned by confidentiality issues? I can't download Synapse at work and that makes my 200$ keyboard a very expensive keyboard with very little to vouch for its price.

    I don't know if the cloud idea was really for the sake of modernizing their softwares, or if it was to cover up their inability to add a bit of on-board memory, but I am very disappointed.

    Don't get me wrong, I've been a fan of Razer's products and I love the build quality of nearly every items they make.

    It's just that I feel the keyboard I had high hopes for is very dependent on a software (Synapse) rather than itself.

    Is your workplace for gamers? I think the keyboards are meant for playing games and not for work. Just my two cents lol.

    Well I guess it is a gaming keyboard, but it is nonetheless a keyboard.

    Likewise, Razer's store has gaming headphones, but I'm pretty sure their sole purpose isn't to play games.

    Then again, it's true that my mechanical keyboard is pretty loud for a workplace xD

    I use my Razer gear at work ALL the time.

    Granted, 90% of the time I get to use my own laptop, and our IT department doesn't mind if we install software because they re-image the laptops after every gig.
