Razer Nostromo details:

RazerRazer has always claimed they made computer gaming products “For gamers, By gamers.”

So, who best to explain the Razer Nostromo details than they themselves:

Ergonomic form factor for precision and maximum comfort

The Razer Nostromo’s 16-button keypad layout and form factor are ergonomically optimized for easier and highly intuitive access to critical gaming commands, improving your key activation accuracy while letting you game in comfort. And for those marathon fragging sessions, a soft-touch rubberized wrist pad cradles your palm and significantly reduces the hand fatigue and wrist strain so you can rain digital death on your opponents without pause or mercy.

16 Fully programmable keys with on-the-fly keymap switching

Razer Nostromo’s 16 fully-programmable Hyperesponse gaming buttons and 8-way directional thumb pad are engineered for rapid key actuation and crisp response. A programmable 8-way directional thumb pad which you can use either for movement or modifier keys round off your instruments of mass destruction. In addition, you can switch instantly between 8 keymaps by assigning the different keymap toggles to any button on the keypad.

Customize to your game with Razer’s configurator software

The Razer Nostromo’s all-new configurator software is as easy to use as it is deadly, allowing you to conveniently customize all the buttons with any game command or key binding to open up a massive repertoire of killer combinations right under your fingertips.
