The Razer drivers do not work with the Belkin version.
Phredburger
I have played mostly FPS games in the past using both the N50 and N52 pads, which IMO are the best possible alternative to the keyboard you can get.
circusfreak
The thumb button is a shift modifier so i can quickly use twice as many keys.

You'll find plenty of negative reviews about this little guy anywhere you look. I took all the negative points very seriously (there are a lot of very valid points) and decided not to buy it. However, I saw it at bestbuy a few days ago and man, I kind of drooled a little. Looks even better in person, so I thought what the heck, if I really don't like it I'll just return it and make up a story about bogus Mac software (which works impressively well, by the way. Not at all like your typical Razer software).

Its important to note that I never used the original n52, but I couldn't be happier with the n52te. Firstly, The spacebar isn't giving me the problems I was expecting. I see what people are talking about, when they mention not being able to hit it on the edges, but hitting the space bar at the far ends feels uncomfortable and unnatural to me anyways. I haven't hit space bar without it registering unless I try to get it to miss. I thought I'd have to pop the key off and put something in there to make it a little more stable, but it's really just fine the way it is.

The thumb stick comes off to reveal a d-pad, which I prefer. The small hole in the middle isn't a problem for me now and I don't see it being a problem later on.

I spent two days away from WoW just getting my macros in perfect order, and I honestly can't imagine needing more than is available with the n52te. Sure there are only 3 KeyMaps, where the original apparanly had 4, but I think I've got more than I could handle anyway.

There are blue, red, and green lights under the spacebar to let you know, out of the corner of your eye, which keymap is currently active. Very helpful, but these three lights are way too bright, in my opinion. I put a few layers of tape over them. Problem solved.

Verified Purchase
The purpose of a macro enabled gamepad is to ease the use of multiple game commands and improve both the timing and execution of commands as compared to a player who is pressing keys on a normal keyboard.

The Belkin N52TE comes with a lot of marketing hype. It is easy to assume that it will soon eclipse the Belkin N52, which has been the standard for gamepads for several years. Unfortunately it falls a bit short.

The N52TE has an improved keypad that seems to be mechanically better than the N52. Unfortuantely, the spacebar on the N52TE must be depressed precisely in the center and travels nearly 1/4 inch to make contact. This makes it difficult press and to use quickly.

There is a conveniently located thumb button that could be a real asset but has a mushy feel with no 'click' to indicate when it has been depressed. This makes it useless for quick, momentary functions.

The backlighting feature, instead of only showing the key tops, surrounds the entire perimeter of the keys with bright, blue light. Since one of the reasons to use a keypad is the convenience of not having to look at the keys for finger placment, this is more of a distraction than a help. Fortunately the backlight can be turned off.

The new N52TE has three, selectable keybanks. The N52 had four.

The software has a completely new UI. If you are a N52 user, you cannot transfer any of your current macros to the new unit, you must start from scratch. The new programming software contains most of the fuctionality of the current N52 software but lacks several features that most users consider essential:

---As currently offered, if a macro is running, hitting any other key will stop the macro.

This is a long and comprehensive review for those of you who really want to get informed about this particular product. Should you wish to skip the main dish and go straight to the point then please read the disclaimers below and go to "MY CONCLUSION" at the end.

***

DISCLAIMERS:
I will attempt to make this review as unbiased and neutral as I possibly can in order to give the reader a better ground from which to make the decision of whether purchasing this product will be a good deal or not.
I often do a lot of research and reading before buying something, especially if it is a device as unique and expensive as this. If my research convinces me, I proceed to buy the item from a local retailer and try it out for over three weeks. If I like it I keep it, if not I return it (thus the three-week deadline). I strongly believe that with items like these that carry a hefty price tag and incessant bragging by the manufacturer, if I am not sold by the end of the second week, it isn't worth it.
Why do I say and do all of this? Simple, we are a community and our only line of defense is each other. Companies seem to be slowly phasing out of their commitment to please the consumer, and most consumers are ignorantly riding along with that. I believe that it should be the other way around; companies have to be driven by consumers who, by being informed, should encourage a healthy corporate competition in order to force technological evolution to everyone's advantage. That way we end up with the best that industry has to offer as the industry ends up with our commitment and money. Which then goes into another cycle; thus we all win. However, the only way to achieve this is by having informed customers who stick out for each other and healthily share all they know.
