2 out of 5 eggs Not what I expected 11/30/2013

This review is from: Razer Orbweaver Gaming Keypad

Pros:

It does what it is supposed to do... mostly.

Cons:

I thought it was supposed to do something different.
I did not like that it only maps to keys instead of being an independent USB device that registered as device buttons like a joystick with a bunch of buttons would do.
Required to download software from mfg in order to edit key-mappings.
Required to create an account with mfg to download software.
Software is not used to program the pad as in start the program, edit the keypad, shut down program, no, it must be running all the time.
No option to opt-out of the software phoning home to be my bestest buddy by keeping all my profiles on their servers, yeah they did that out of the kindness of their heart.
The profiles keep getting reset and I don't realize it until I am trying to use it, then it's too late(trying to use it as a button box for sim racing)

Other Thoughts:

When I grab a piece of hardware off the store shelf and purchase it, I want to take it home, plug it in, and not be bothered again, I don't want to mail in my warranty card, I don't want the mfgr to know I exist if I choose not to make contact with them, but this gorram product was useless to me without having to create accounts at the mfgr website to download software that is supposed to run on my pc as a service all the time in order for me to use this thing.

Good news is that if you know how to edit firewall settings you can block this thing from contacting the mother ship, still not happy about the unnecessary service that must be running in order for me to use anything other than the default key bindings.
