Not buying anymore Razer Products...

It makes me angry and annoyed that I must have this garbage spyware/bloatware running to utilize the features of my moderately priced keyboard. There are only a couple of logical reasons why you would do that to your customers. And I'm confident it's for analytics and advertising purposes.

It's ridiculous that there are FIVE, yes 5 services and a systray app running to support a SINGLE keyboard with RGB:
-Razer Central Service
-Razer Chroma SDK Server
-Razer Chroma SDK Service
-Razer Game manager (Enough with the game manager's! Besides I don't need Razer or anyone else to manage my games.)
-Razer Synapse Service

Also has my CPU usage at almost 100% at idle and as soon as I close the software my CPU throttles down. I open it back up and let it sit, back up to 100%. And my CPU is an R7 2700 @ 4.2 GHz so it's not struggling with anything.

Done! There are too many good products out there to have to put up with this. $100 KB that needs software running to use its features... At least with other products like Corsair the user can close the software and still have the same functionality. Not with Razer! No software running, no features. No thanks.

You shouldn't have to, but use an antivirus software like avg to keep background processes from running your cpu and ram. Synapse does just fine while hibernating behind an antivirus as it does using up precious computing power.

Still, Razer is the best PC hardware and peripheral company. They do need to invest more in R and D and programmers. But this is still not a good enough excuse to shy away from them permanently. How many Razer products have you owned?
