For some reason, whenever I hear about "cloud" peripherals, I remember mice and printers labeled "Y2k ready".
At least this doesn't seem to gate functionality behind an online account like Razer, so that's a huge improvement.
Also, looking at how profiles don't really work on my G.Skill keyboard, I'll take a less user-friendly interface that works over that any day ;)
The price though...

Are you referring to wanting bigger thumbnails or bigger size images that you get when clicking the thumbnails?

Bigger when clicked. 720x720 is tiny and it's hard to see details.

The easiest way to interface with the continuum, John de Lancie would be proud of that.
