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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Im a N52 Nos owner and I bought TE as its replacement when it came out, i primary play FPS or 3rd person action games, so far my TE has seen several months of consecutive service,some of the games its trotted though: COD4, RB6V, RB6v2, FEAR,Half life,portal,A-Creed, Lost Planet,and even Tiberium Wars,
The good: N52TE has the same good button setup,
same awesome feel as its predecessor, and the back lighting rocks!
other major improvement are in looks, keys are a bit bigger, the dpad is easier to handle, the scroll feels tighter,the new plastic palm rest is VERY smooth and soft,and the on board memory concept works,it also appears that the scroll wheel/mouse driver conflict Glitch- (that hindered the N52 NOS) is not a problem with the TE.
The Bad: where Razer initially blew it,-happened with the drivers and the firmware. Version 1.01 was terrible and glitch-y, just bad software design all around, not to mention the design was a huge departure from form the N52 NOS as it was simplified down to the max. Newer driver versions have sought to bring back some of the complexity as well as fix existing issues (ENTIRE MACRO SYSTEM for starters) while keeping the "Razer" interface. (The original N52 NOS, featured a rather bland interface that was complex but functioned beautifully) another downside is that you cannot import your old n52 nos profiles even with the new 2.10 driver and 1.02 FW versions today, so you get to remake them.
now granted, this is actually not a HUGE hassel,
both editors can be run at the same time-
so if you put one next to the other, and re-input the data by reading off the old profile-you will be done in no time- 1 hour for me for all of my profiles..Read more ›
