Love it, really I do.

George A. Sopko, Amazon

  • Summary: Allows for a very relaxed wrist/hand position while gaming. It has several profiles that can be loaded in, so, in addition to gaming when I do any network diagramming I can load that profile in and use the most common shirt cuts that I typically use. The palm rest is a little loose, as it fidgets every-so-slightly while I game but it's not performance impacting. The thumb pad can be assigned to the typical WASD layout or as another set of buttons.

A bit of a let down

SCOTT, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using the nostromo style gamepads such as this since the early days of WoW. Each has had it's own share of strengths and weaknesses, but my overall impression of this one (as well as the prior razer variant) is that I am not impressed. First off, they slightly altered the original N52 design, most notably adding an adjustment to the palmrest (a plus) and removing the scroll wheel (big minus).

  • Summary: I don't like that this company requires you to register on their website and you have to login to program the device. I tried to register and create an account (i.e. password, etc) and it would not let me login. I could not use my keypad because I could not program it. They want to know all your information just for a silly gaming device. This is total data mining. I called the company and he told me they needed my cell phone number, address, etc.

If only it didn't depend on Synapse ...

Cireasa, Amazon

  • Summary: Order arrived fast and in good condition, no problems whatsover. Now onto the Tartarus. I use it for WoW, so I cannot say how it would perform for FPS or something else At first it feld really weird. Had to redo some keybindings, but after 1-2 days it felt really really good. It's like they advertise, "you don't know how you played withouth it until you use it". You can put it on the rest of the chair and it feels ok.

Great Keypad!

  • Summary: I purchased this to replace a Logitech G13, as that was too big and uncomfortable for my hand, and I wanted something similar to the Nostromo, which I had given to my girlfriend. Like the Nostromo, it's very comfortable to use. I'm actually quite fond of the joy stick and the overall tactile feedback from the keypad. One particular thing that I do miss is the scroll wheel from the Nostromo's design.

Improves the Gaming Experience

Omnireader, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: Several years ago I bought the original Nostromo gamepad because I was wearing out my keyboard's WASD keys and frustrated at hitting the correct key to toss that grenade or whatever. Years of use and a couple moves of my household wore the Nostromo to retirement so I did some research and bought the Razer. Glad I did!

A very quirky gadget, but plenty of handy features

Justin, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I've always hated a keyboard and mouse for games. I use a controller whenever possible, and it's always been that way. I had played with this a bit while on display at a local store, and I decided that this, along with the Razer Naga mouse, I might ease my hatred of the standard PC control scheme. Well, it's certainly a whole lot better than a keyboard, that's for sure. It might seem foreign at first, but once you get to using it, it's very natural and very nice.
