I've been looking at purchasing a Belkin Nostromo N52 TE and was wondering if anyone had had experience with this device. I have a few questions about it:

  • Is is easy to setup and configure?
  • Does it work well on a Mac?
  • Do you think it improves your game play?
  • Is there a better left hand accessory that I should be looking at purchasing instead?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I just picked up on one ebay for about $30 used. Also, you'll want to use this software (the belkin site is confusing!): belkin.com/support/article/… Also make sure you use the 1.10 drivers here (if you are using Windows 7, I hear the more current drivers don't work): belkin.com/support/article/… –  jcollum Oct 11 '10 at 6:00

  1. Yes, very easy. I plugged it in and it worked.
  2. Yes.
  3. I used it for Raven Shield, as well as Battlefield 2, Borderlands, and other PC games. It allowed me to set up profiles and macros, which helped when I needed to do a collection of actions repeatedly (such as aiming a helicopter TV-missile in BF2).
  4. I've tried just about every accessory out there, and none beat my trusty N52.
