Most helpful reviews

Kevin, Berkshire 17, Off time gamer.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
-Very sensitive keys,
-Loads of customization options,
-Feels absolutely great in the palm of your hand,
-Layout is easy to get used to.
-8 way D-pad is amazing for games that can use it.
-Matches my Razer Deathadder perfectly!
Bad points:
-Hard to get out of the habit of using, (Mobile gamers beware! I can no longer play MMOs when I'm out of town!)
-Lights only shine blue. Not a problem for me as my keyboard and mouse are only blue as well, but customizable color would be nice for those with colorful Razer mice and keyboards.
-8 way D-pad is great for MMOs, but full analog would've been better for games that support it.

Being able to use wasd keys in more comfort is a win win,
Nice smothe responsiveness.
Very easy palm rest
Software simple with lost of options
Bad points:
Only bad point I have, it will over ride the Xbox 360 controler, you will need to remove the controler device that has both 360 and the Nostromo to be able to use the 360 in geme

Tony, hampshire gaming for 20 years

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
So much easier to play FFS or MMO on the pc than a standard Keyboard and of course ease of programming to your on layout specific to the game you are playing is good, comfortable to hold and use due to the hand rest
Bad points:
just because it has the Razer name and some neons should not mean an extra £10-£20 on the price but such is life, bigger and not as comfortable as the N50 and N51 it replaces

Whether your passion lies in FPS, MMORPG, or RTS games, the Razer Nostromo® gaming keypad is designed to give you the upper hand with cutting edge ergonomics designed for intuitive game control while you play in complete comfort. With an arsenal of tournament-grade controls including 16 fully programmable Hyperesponse keys, 8 keymaps that you can switch between on the fly, and an 8-way directional thumb pad all integrated into one dedicated gaming keypad, you’re prepared to take on all challengers.

Ergonomic form factor for precision and maximum comfort
The Razer Nostromo’s 16-button keypad layout and form factor are ergonomically optimized for easier and highly intuitive access to critical gaming commands, improving your key activation accuracy while letting you game in comfort.

A programmable 8-way directional thumb pad which you can use either for movement or modifier keys round off your instruments of mass destruction.
