I have an earlier version [Belkin Nostromo] and used it extensively with the Battlefield games when I was still playing them and loved it. It currently is collecting dust and hasn't been for over a year but I expect it still works great.

This is what a keyboard should be... Love using it. works good when you're on the couch and need a heavy keyboard to stay on your lap, works great at a desk with or without the attached rest, keys feel amazing but aren't noisy, backlighting is clean and not annoying. Feels better made than any keyboard I've ever used.

I got that exact Keypad when I migrated to Windows 7. I was coming from the original Belkin Nostromo Speedpad N52 (not to be confused with the n52TE that the Razr is based off of). I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, the software is the problem.
For example, in a game that uses WASD for direction, to move diagonal Forward-Right, you would press W+D. Well, the software could simply not do this. While my older, N52 could do it all day.

Given that Belkin hasn't updated the software in over a year, despite widespread reports of this problem, I wouldn't recommend this product.

It's been some time since I looked into it, I came away with the impression that most of these products simply don't get the support they need.

I'm still using the original and, the only problem I have with it is that the software starts up but, then the screen won't minimize. I use it in most of my games including Skyrim, and World of Tanks.

I really like these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/ima...&n=541966&s=pc Depending on your needs, I have a brown cherry switch and a blue (prefer the blue but at work the browns are less annoying for coworkers)

At one time I spent over 700 on keyboards before settling on the majestouchs. They are excellent all purpose, though for gaming you probably want the black or red cherry switches. Whereas for typing I prefer the blue.

Azrael, I like that one, the 87 key layout is great, and Cherry Black are my preferred switches. If it had the backlighting and extra features of the Mionix I'd be all over it :)

I didn' t mention my keyboard 'cause the OP was asking about key pads but, mine is a Thermaltake Meka G1 (cherry black MX keys, n-key rollover, a good solid heft, and sturdy cabling).

I use the keypad mainly because I like moving with a Dpad.

I also have bought a KBC Poker http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5310/...50a9827170.jpg liked it but it was a pain to use in emacs (keyboard driven text editor). Along with the unicomp which features buckling springs, it was nice but I much prefer the lighter touch of cherry clues. Also owned a variety of razer, rose will and a few other varieties. Almost bought a topre keyboard but couldn't stomach the cost.

I have the Belkin N52 at my shop and the Razr Nostromo at my house.
I loved them when I was PC Gaming.
I've used the N52 for about 5 years with WoW.

Any chance you've compared that to the steelseries 6G or 7G? I've been in the market for a new keyboard for some time and was about to pull the trigger on the 6GV2.
