I feel your pain, in my opinion, it's bad enough for existing Mac customers who have already purchased products, to later find that they're now not supported, but to allow new buyers to purchase Razer products to find out the bad news when they try plugging them in, is poor form.
The cheapest fix could be for Razer to inform all outlets of the problem & provide them with large "INCOMPATIBLE WITH Mac OS" labels for all of their current & future Razer products, until Razer produces new packaging.

They actually do have a list of requirements on a box and it states that it requires a Windows machine. But on the other hand it a has a big Bluetooth log on it, which presumes compatibility with all platforms. And mouse itself does work, just you can't tweak it. But overall I agree, a big warning lable "not compatible with Mac" would help a lot, but i actually think they won't do it on purpose, just to get bigger sale numbers.

The thing with packaging, is that I doubt whether anyone reads everything on it before heading to the checkout.
If there's a compatibility issue, the packaging should declare it boldly.
This is unacceptable. Returning my mouse as soon as it arrives.
Going to switch to Logitech, they handle customer service and actually listen to customers
Just spent all my pocket money on a mouse, in which I cant control nor use to it's fullest capability. Im furious!
Someone found this. The thread was locked so I am reposting it here. Confirmed it is working. A little clunky but I am sure you guys can figure it out. No button assignment, but colors, battery level and detection worked for my Naga Pro on Mac 10.14.6 Mojave https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos

I was pretty annoyed as well that I could not control the colors and such on my Blackwidow Elite on my Mac because Synapse 3 for Mac does not exist and Synapse 2 does not have support for their device. Its been years and the lack of support is extremely annoying.
This software does work though, I can confirm, I just set it up on my MBP running OS X 11.5.2, was able to set the color and such no problem. Thank you for the link 🙂
Time to switch to SteelSeries
Yeah... I think alot of you have droped the ball on Synapse 3 for Mac. It is so dissapointing... there are no words. Its like the whole community here, does not exist. Razer happily sales hardware to Mac-Idiots, so they can build funny chairs, fantastic masks, idiotic mascots and beautiful company-glass-houses... well graz to you razer. you screwed us well. the good thing... there are plenty of mice out there no one uses... still in mint condition. so in 50 years from now, you have alot of exhibits to put in museums around the world.
Just bought a Kraken Kitty RGB headset and didn't realize there was no Synapse 3 support for MacOS. I can't even use Synapse 2 because it isn't compatible with my headset.I use to think Razer was cutting edge and made quality products. As a streamer and a radio broadcaster, I am seriously disappointed in this company.

Returning the product immediately. Never going to buy Razer for myself (Mac user) or my husband (PC user) again.
This is nuts ... I have same issue with synapse 3 not available for Mac and Synapse 2 for Mac not supporting my new Blackadder V2 mouse. Great mouse, but if I cannot program the buttons it goes back to Amazon and I'm switching to Logitech.
Hi every1!

You should try karabiner to control your razor HW. It supports everything and is also lightweight. The interface suits macOS almost like an native macOS app.

I've been a Razer Naga user since the Epic (Trinity's buttons suck in comparison) and I'm gutted that Razer has completely abandoned OsX support. I used Synapse 2.0 Legacy for years to make my work more efficient, and now I'm back to the drawing board.

Come on, Razer, give us Mac users some options!

Damn, ok, I guess Razer will be accepting my returns shortly. Meanwhile, a few dudes on GitHub are showing us all that Razer is clearly ignoring a large % of their market. Razer has decided to F%#$ their shareholders. Aren't you tired of Logi eating what you purposely leave on the table?
please devellop the synapse 3 for macos 11.4 ... I can't use It and i can't use my Razer tartarus V2 😞
Just bought my 4th Deathadder and this is the last Razer product I will ever buy. Coming home just to discover that they didn't bother to make drivers for my OS isn't something I will forget.
Just picked up a Naga Pro today at Microcenter without checking this. I guess in 2021 you'd expect one of the largest brands to provide support on MacOS. Guess this plug and play $150 mouse is going back to Microcenter as soon as I order a new Logitech mouse
bonsoir,

avant tous je me présente, je suis un utilisateur des produits Razer , j'ai :
-RAZER DEATHSTALKER CHROMA
-RAZER NAGA CHROMA - SOURIS GAMING MMO MULTICOLORE
-RAZER KRAKEN 7.1 V2
-RAZER TARTARUS V2
-RAZER BASESTATION CHROMA

-RAZER GOLIATHUS CHROMA

et synapse 2 version 1,88,20

voila déjà quelques années que j'utilise petit a petit tous ces produits.
Par le passé ils ont pu fonctionner plus ou moins chacun leur tours .
mai quand est-il vraiment aujourd'hui ? sert Apple sort des mises à jours OS régulièrement. les produits évoluent , mais comme toutes les sociétés .

est ce que le prix des produits n'est pas assez cher pour avoir des personnes attitrées au développement pour les interfaces MAC OS ? ou est-ce une volonté dissimulée de l'entreprise de ne rien faire pour nous les personnes qui vous informent en vous et vos produits ?


Cordialement .
Hi,

Just in case somebody actually reading this thread. Few days ago I bought RAZER KIYO PRO as highly recommended webcam. Today, when I connected it to my MacBook Pro, first thing I tried to search for software and in result found this forum. I searched more and it looks like as of today there is no software available for KIYO PRO on MacOS. Camera works, but I have no option to enabled HDR or change any settings.

Outcome: Returning it back.

P.S. Maybe SYNAPSE is not needed for webcam? Maybe it is a better way and you don't need to put all your hardware setup in one app?
Razer, cmon! Let's do it! Give us support Mac users.

New devices are not compatible with Synapse 2 anymore.
The only app, that is working on OS X with Razer is open-source RGB effects manager: https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos

thanks for the hint ... great!
great, did not know that!

Hey Guys,
I am switching to the ZSA Moonlander. They have support for MacOS, Windows and Linux. You can use the left side of the keyboard as a gamepad and its fully customisable with macros and all the good stuff 🙂
All I wanted was to use Tartarus Pro with Maya and Blender 3D softwares as it speeds up my workflow a lot. I am done with Razer.
Up!!! Razer Naga Pro, same situation.... Razer come on!!! Help Mac OS users! Look at new laptops on Mac OS we need you...
This sucks. I bought a mamba wireless to use with my mac (work machine),
and synapse has never worked. It's been a year, and the third party drivers I've been using on this stupid thing are now failing, and still no synapse 3 for mac. WTF?
