Razer Nostromo Gaming Keypad

The Belkin n52te SpeedPad set the bar for one-handed gaming peripherals that looked like they could control alien spacecraft. It's successor, the Razer Nostromo keypad, maintains the look, and it's been updated to support more instantly-switchable keymaps and gaming profiles.

The Razer Nostromo's got all the new chipsets and drivers that have cropped up since the Belkin Speedpad came out back in 2007, bringing it up to speed with today's cutting-edge competitive gaming (and maintaing its crazy-ass, highly intimidating look.) In addition to its 16 fully-programmable buttons and eight-way directional thumb pad, the Nostromo can now support eight full keymaps (up from three) and twenty gaming profiles (up from ten).

The Razer Nostromo is available now for $69.99 at Razer Zone.

Dan said...

That looks awesome. But I really wonder how effective it really is compared to a keyboard. I mean, a keyboard has tons of keys.

I've got the second version (first one to add a third row of keys) after using the first iteration for years. The second version is the best one so far. The LED bling BS version is a step down. Save yourself $20-30 and get the older version. The included software lets you make as many profiles as you want for whatever game. I don't know what you're refering to about only having 3 to 10 different profiles or whatever.

KillerKun said...

Well i don't know if i could ever get all the juice out of it, but it seems really sexy so i would totally buy it

Mark said...

Looks like it would take ages to get used to, but it would probably make gaming a lot more comfortable!

DDX said...

Decent price, I just might have to get one.
