Summary: I got this because it had more buttons than the nostromo, but it just doesn't fit the hand very well. The nostromo feels so natural, this thing is just awkward..
Pros: Lots of buttons!!! Nice looking, and very cool LED backlighting. Software is alright...
Cons: It just doesn't fit my hand at all... Feels VERY VERY uncomfortable compared to my N52 Nostromo. The little "joystick" SUCKS compared to the N52s d-pad. Impossible to press it the exact way you want in high pressure situations.
Summary: I would recommend getting an n52. I've had one of those and it works great. It wore out on me and I thought I'd try the PGCU because it's $30 cheaper than the n52 te. I'm going back to best buy today for an exchange. Or, if you just want the macro ability, get the G11 keyboard.
Pros: Good feel. Nice look.
Cons: The software has to be the most unintuitive I've ever seen. And it didn't match my pad. They had red, green and blue shift states but my pad had red, green and yellow. When I programmed in some macros the pad would type random letters and numbers. I thought I just had it in the wrong shift state ...
Summary: they really need to change the way the profiler works I thought it was ok but the Nostromo's is alot easier to use and im really sorry I could'nt wait for the New N52 but I guess I will now lol
Pros: well I love the feel of this thing compared to my Nostromo N52 and it looks better then my N52 and thats about it.
Cons: I am sending mine back the programing on this is junk plus the buttons are weak feel like a cheap toy from Kmart. My Nostromo I can program it to do anything and with ease the hat on this won't work in Crysis I use the D pad on my N52 to move forward back and left & Right and in Crysis it won't e...
Summary: I love my saitek eclipse II keyboard. I really thought this product would have been designed better.
Pros: Looks good on the website
Cons: *drivers and software that are REQUIRED to used this device; are not supported by Vista *when they say adjustable? They mean the thumb bit, it goes up and down. *poor key action, buttons are sticky and don't react well.
Cons: Bought this as a replacement for my well used Nxxxromo n52. Convoluted programming software. Cannot use any key you want on the pad for mode shifting. D-pad on n52 >> hat switch. Get an n52, period.
Pros: One thing I like about this over the Nostromo n52 are the "pinky keys".
Cons: The Nostromo has a palm rest and indention similar to keyboards (the F and J keys) so it is easy to place your hands on the device without having to look at it. Saitek's version doesn't have either, which makes it frustrating if you're switching between typing and using the device (ie playing on ...
