I've had a Nostromo for years when it was still being manufactured by Belkin. They sold it to Razer a while back and stopped driver support for the N52 which became a issue for me under Win7, so I figured since I liked the Tarantula keyboard so much, surely their take on the Nostromo would be golden.
First, the software that comes bundled with the Razer Nostromo is flat out excellent, very solid and stable, and IMO better than what Belkin had going with their profiler. The Belkin profiler was good and easy to use, very intuitive on most levels with programming macros and keystrokes, and allowed you to set up 3 keys for page flipping fairly easily. The Razer version has the same ease of use, but is smoother and cleaner with its layout, it enables *MUCH* smoother profile changes even within a game to other game set ups, something the Belkin version couldn't, and has 8 keymap page options compared to Belkin's 3.
However, when I first got it, I was very annoyed with the thumb directional pad, it had this knob sticking up from the center that significantly interfered with my use of it as a directional movement button. I guess the designers thought it made the directional key more accessible, but I found it very hindering. Fortunately, a closer examination revealed that the knob was removable and the thumb button's slightly dipped design was much more natural. I did find the thumb and space keys to be a bit too tall and slightly stiff compared to my old Belkin model, but after a couple of weeks of steady use they loosened up and I got used to their height, a combination of unlearning what the Belkin model had taught my hand to expect and Razer's keys becoming more responsive with use.
The keys on the keypad are *excellent*, downright sexy. The texture of the buttons, the lighting, and the amount of distance that your finger has to depress them is all spot on and natural in the amount of effort and response. One's hand size is only a minor concern thanks to the palm rest's shape. I have large hands, so the heel of my palm naturally sits on the bottom of the rest, and my fingers find their placement naturally as a result with no feelings of being crowded. I have a small friend who is all of 4'10", she borrowed my unit for a couple of days and promptly ordered one herself, saying that her small hand size was equally supported by the Nostromo's palm rest, allowing her to easily reach all the keys simply by resting the heel of her palm higher on the rest, she also found the knob on the directional pad worth keeping in place (though she too complained about the stiffness of the two buttons just like I did until use loosened them up).
I still possess the unit I purchased in Feb of 2011. Ever since I've gotten this, I play every game using it and should any mishap befall it I would replace it with zero hesitation. Every friend I've recommended it to has bought one refuses to game without it (currently numbering at 8 converts). The durability of this unit is simply outstanding, the keys still have their sexy responsiveness, the back lighting is still the same level of color, and only an occasional air-blasting dusting was ever needed. I hope Razer keeps this product on the market for a long time to come still.

If you buy this you HAVE to give it a couple of weeks to get used to. It takes about 2 weeks or so to get used to the change in gaming. But once you get used to it, you will never want to game without it again.

Only complaint i have is the thumbpad. I use it for 4 different abilities within MMOs. If you are not very precise you can easily trigger 2 abilities in one motion by accident. This can be annoying if you wish to use the thumbpad in this manner.
If I made one change other than that it would be to add 2 smaller buttons on the semi top/side of the piece that holds the thumb round and direction pad. Something where I could easily slide my index over for a quick hit on 2 buttons which would be in a distinctive and unmistakable location. Thats what sets this pad apart from other gaming pads. There is no mistaking what button you are pushing on many of the buttons.
If you game you have got to buy this. Worlds better than a keyboard.
I cannot understand how anyone could complain about the spinning wheel btw. They clearly do not understand the things that you can do with it. For example in WoW I used the Up direction for Deadly Throw on my rogue. I used the Down direction for Fan of Knives, which really felt natural to the motion btw. Avengers shield was even more awesome on the spinning wheel spin back motion.
I use the round thumb button as my oh S**t or CC button. Rogue- Blind, Paladin-HOJ
Some use the thumb flat button for 'shift', while I use it for jump. I use the upper left pinky button for shift. What i lose in finger shift options i gain on thumb direction/round/flat/wheel. For example - Pinky+spin wheel back= drink heal pot

1st off I love the nostromo and am somewhat thankful someone decided to make my beloved n52 nostromo after belkin for some reason decided to stop making them. I have been playing games with them since it was 1st made and love it.
I recently purchased through amazon one of these new ones now made by razer. I have never owned a razer product before and from what I can tell they took a good already designed controller and just stamped their name on it. hardware wise it works fine and lights up with a switch on the bottom to turn it off that all is good.
The problem I have is the driver/software/all in one razer product software called synapse. This program is HUGE way to huge for a simple controller. 2nd problem why do i need to logon to use it?
3rd problem is the cloadware that razer boasts better than sliced bread and the 2nd coming of christ, it does not work if it does I wouldn't know because there is no documentation explain anything to do with it.
Overall if you always loved this product here it is get it! just remember the crap job razer did and I would think twice on any other product they make.

Still using this game-pad as of today. Perfect for MMOs with the ability to program the far left buttons as 'Shift', 'CTRL' and Tab.Read more
This is a fantastic game pad I’ve had the razor Tartarus. Tartarus chroma. Orbweaver chroma and the g13 but this is by far the most comfortable and responsive game pad I’ve used...Read more
What a great game pad this has been. I've had a Nostromo game pad, 3 now in total, since 2000-ish. I fear the N52TE I have now will be last one.Read more
Was great... right up until Razer changed it with a driver update so it would no longer work unless you connect it to the internet and share your data with Razer.Read more
