    Hey guys - I am currently running on OS X Mavericks (OS X 10.9) and I am thinking of purchasing a Razer Naga 2014 EDITION.

    Before I purchase this, I would like to know if it is compatible with my version of mac. I looked on the Razer website and it told me that it is compatible up to 10.8, but I would just like to know for sure. If you are currently using a Naga with Mavericks, please tell me - you'd be helping me out a lot.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Even if the software were specifically compatible with 10.9, I wouldn't touch Razer Synapse 2.0 or any Razer hardware for that matter with the proverbial 10' pole.

    Pick up a Logitech G600 and use the software SteerMouse (costs an extra $20 but is well worth the money because Logitech's Mac software is garbage as well) to control it.

    I know Naga is much more complex than Abyssus with all the buttons and inside hardware, so my experience is not very relevant, but still...

    I use my Razer with 10.9 with no extra paid or free drivers/software. The only thing I did was turn the mouse tracking speed all the way to the left in the System Preferences to get rid of most the acceleration, and used the physical DPI switch in the mouse itself to set a comfortable tracking speed.

    Yup, agree with this, I put that Razor Synapse software on my machine last year I think it was, firstly the mouse would not work then it was a nightmare to remove from my hard drive, it really imbeds itself in somehow.

    I must just say I did get a refund from the retailer :)

    You can still get this though.....

    Razer Deathadder Re-Spawn 3500DPI Gaming Mouse

    It is the older version and does not need the Synapse software, bit expensive, but I have two of these on separate machines for over at least a couple of years and they are are still going strong.

    Keep in mind, his mouse only has three buttons, so no software is needed. The Naga and G600 have more than 15, and you need a driver of some kind if you want full control over those buttons. That's what Synapse and Logitech Gaming Software, respectively, are supposed to do. However, neither does an exceptionally good job on OS X. This is why I use SteerMouse. It's lightweight, and the license is permanent, so you only have to pay for it once.
