    Nobody at Razer will say it (and this is only my conclusion based on anecdotal evidence, not a fact), but I don't think older devices will ever be supported by Synapse 3. Never.

    The public Synapse 3 Beta started with the release of the first Synapse 3 device, the Lancehead mouse, last April, nearly a year and a half ago. I cannot believe that Razer is so incompetent that they have not been able to figure out how to port support over from Synapse 2 to Synapse 3 for any device that is supported by Synapse 2. I believe it was a strategy and decision, not just an oversight or mistake.

    Time will tell.

    Tick tock, Razer...

    It's never too late to do the right thing and start working on Synapse 4.

    I am with him. Synapse 3 will NEVER support older devices. This is there way to get you to buy new products as they come out. What is really telling is they must have some really inept developers working on Synapse 3 because there is zero reason for it to be this buggy for this long.

    Razer_TheFiend has stated that they temporarily stopped working on adding support for older devices to focus on improving the quality and reliability of Synapse 3. As someone who has to use Synapse 3 for their new Razer Blade, let me tell you I wish I could use Synapse 2 for it. Synapse 3 unfortunately is still truly beta software that needs a lot of work. The July 23 update helped a lot with responsiveness, but so many issues still remain with regards to startup reliability, general freezing, recognizing changes in power state, etc.

    Trust me. You'll likely not want this.
