Razer's new Nostromo Gaming Keypad is a new take on the original n52te SpeedPad it co-developed with Belkin a few years back. So what exactly is new?
"The Razer Nostromo is an update to this illustrious gaming keybpad to meet today's competitive gaming demands," Razer explains . "Building on the SpeedPad's proven ergonomic design, the Razer Nostromo incorporates the latest gaming technologies that Razer has developed over the past few years, including a new chipset and software drivers that allow all levels of gamers to program sophisticated command strings to help decimate their opponents."
The Nostromo sports 16 buttons in a layout designed to provide easy access, along with a soft-touch rubberized wrist pad so you can game well into the night without suffering wrist fatigue. Each button is programmable, and unlike the original, you can switch instantly between eight keymaps instead of just three. You can also store up to 20 gaming profiles, twice as many as the n52te.
The Nostromo is available now for $70.
