IMG Reviews Belkin Nostromo Speedpad n52
9:23 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Belkin's Nostromo SpeedPad n52 is a unique game controller that aims to replace your keyboard for first and third person shooters by placing 14 programmable keys, a directional pad, scroll wheel. and thumb buttons, at the tips of your left hand. Rather than fumbling across the keys of your keyboard, the n52 is an ergonomic and innovative solution to the problem.
An excerpt from Greg Gant's review follows:
The most unique feature the n50 and n52 share is its ability use “shift states.” Shift states can act like profiles within a profile and function like a modifier key so multiple commands can be attached to any key. The n52 has a total of four shift states that each corresponds with the LED light in the bottom left hand corner of the pad — no state, red, blue and green. Shift states are perfect for games that use multiple classes of characters that have unique commands. I have one complaint about the shift states still hasn’t been addressed in the n52. The drivers still do not have the ability to cycle between shift states. Instead each shift state must be assigned to a separate key. Luckily with the n52, the sheer amount of buttons makes up for the lack of a shift state cycle function.For more information on the Nostromo SpeedPad n52, read the rest of the review.
