The n50 SpeedPad is the first gaming device of its kind, a completely new gaming tool that transcends conventional categories such as game pads, joysticks, etc. The SpeedPad can best be described as a combination keyboard and game pad. The 10 keys on the n50 act as keys on a keyboard with the advantage of being easily accessible and intuitively configured. The n50 also has an eight-way directional pad, much like the d-pad on a standard game pad. ItÃ?Â¢??s an innovative, multipurpose tool that will lift your gaming experience to a whole new level.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I just got the Nostromo n52 so I'm not upgrading from previous software. For me starting with vers. 1.1 I am having absolutely no problems. I just wish the programing was a bit more Mac intuitive like. Also it would be nice to have some default game key maps like the PC software has.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I really want to like this controller... but 4 hard crashes in one week after installing it... including one upon first connecting the device, even prior to installing drivers...
Well, lets just say Belkin has truly dropped the ball on this one, despite it's attractive appearance & appealing options.
It could be that I just have a defective model... but still, considering all I've read here, I'd say it needs work regardless.
I would recommend avoiding this controller and it's software until the drivers mature... or at least until Belkin puts some real effort into OSX for it's input devices. Where is USB Overdrive when you need it?
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Like others, the 1.0.1 drivers work "OK" with the n50. The array controller in this version crashes on launch under 10.2.8. Removing latest Kensington Mouseworks makes no diff. Anyone tried either version in Panther? Love the pad--hate the drivers.
