I miss mine


Stuck waiting till Newegg restocks these... again! Newegg, Y U NO HAVE NOSTROMO?!

Perfect fit for larger and smaller hands (the handseat can adjust by snapping it on and off) ; Perfect ergonomic layout ; Macro editing and profile swapping is a breeze ; Perfect for my games (WoW, LoL) and for professional use (Photoshop, Blender, etc.)

Can't live without it

Can't play some games without it anymore


I've used this in WoW, LoL, and some FPS games. It's really good. WoW and LoL especially, FPS games tend to be harder to get used to for some reason. In WoW, this really helped me out while raiding. The greatest part about this pad (especially for...

Comfortable, Intuitive, Dependable

Having to switch between it and a keyboard to type while gaming, some games can be hard to get used to for it

Good, but not for me


I am an avid MMO player. I bought this a few days ago to avoid purchasing an all new full-sized keyboard. I've been playing WoW for years and I wanted to try something new. This didn't cut it. I have a normal to smaller sized desk, but this took up too...

Macro Functionality ; Great Software ; Razer ; Looks Great

Didn't feel that comfortable in my hand ; When playing an MMO(WoW) I didn't like moving my hand to reach some of the keys. I used the D-Pad to move ; Pricey ; Takes up more space

Razer Nostromo


It's a different product that offers enough features to separate it from a dedicated keyboard. It really depends on the kind of gamer that you are, and your budget. It took me a while to get used to it but after the learning curve it can make your...

Comfortable - The wrist rest is made of a smooth, rubberized surface that keeps your palm dry. The keys are laid out pretty well, and you never have to reach for any keys except maybe the 01 key, depending on the size of your hand(my hand is about...

Weight distribution - I wish that this product was heavier in the front, as I find myself tipping it up whenever I put more weight on my wrist than my palm ; Backlight color - Only comes in blue, which may or may not match the color setup of your...

I bought this for my wife and she loves it. She was having driver issues with her Belkin Nostromo. This worked as a good replacement for that one.

It looks great and the drivers work fine for the games it was bought for

Excellent Gaming Keypad


Overall, this keypad is an awesome product that has greatly enhanced my MMO gaming experience and will not be without one if I can help it.

I am using this keypad in SWTOR and find it invaluable. All of the important keys I need are just where I need them, especially when combined with my Logitech M570 Track wireless mouse. The keypad feels well constructed and durable, and has survived a...

My only negative issue is my fingers cannot reach the top-left (1 & 2) keys with repositioning the entire keypad, which can cause some minor wrist discomfort over time. I don't see this as a design flaw in the keypad as much as the size/shape of my...

Great gamepad


I was debating b/w this and the logitech one. this one feels comfy to the hand/wrist and has enough buttons for gaming. the logitech one kinda has overkill with so many buttons. great product, wish ave score was 4-5

none so far, works great

I've always wanted one!


It really needs one more column of keys to the left of the pinky finger. Probably not a big deal for WASD users. But I am a ESDF user, every since the Q2 days. ESDF gives you three additional keys to use with your pinky that WASD does not.

I've always wanted one of these since Belkin designed it years ago. I finally decided to take the plunge when my Logitech G15 died. It does most of what I wanted it to do. I love the thumb wheel and D-pad

Too big on both hand settings for my hand. Very uncomfortable due to size. I am 5'11 187lbs and I don't like how far I have to spread my palm to reach the top row of keys. The keys are too flat and I find my fingers sliding onto other keys. I...

same but different


I was thinking about going with the g13 but I could not find one in town to try or buy so I went with this and was worried because anything this company touches has software glitches and the non ability to program dpad is bad but i just changed all my...

feels like the old speedpad, and is awesome for fps's ; Keyboards hurt my left hand after awhile of gaming so i have used the original n52 for years

dpad is not as programmable as old one and limit's you to what you can use it for/frowny face for razr. and software tries to do it's own thing (never seen anything like it) except on their mice???? so they lose an egg
