    I have two Belkin Nostromo N52s. Last time I used them was for WoW when I was playing WoW. I would like to try this again for the new crop of MMORPGs coming out, some of them Windows only. I realize that Razer bought the rights to the Nostromo design and are marketing it making a newer version of the Nostromo. For the Belkin version I believe the last drivers they made for it was for Vista. Is anyone successfully using the Belkin Nostromo with full programing capabilities on Windows 7? It would be nice if I did not have to buy a new one.

    I realize it has some other competition such as the Logitech G13. I'm also interested in comparisons. I've always liked the 4 way thumb wheel on the Nostromo and wonder about "read" on the G13 buttons. Opinions pro and con appreciated!
    Thanks! :)

    I don't blame anyone for answering. This is remote stuff in the world of Macs. ;)

    I've tried and tried to get my Belkin Nostromo N52s going in Windows 7 with the last drivers Belkin made for Vista (3.2.4), but I can't get the Loadout Manager to work properly. The Editor works, but the Loadout Manager is a wash out. It runs, but it won't do anything, like make up new profiles.

    So I purchased a Razer Nostromo this morning via Amazon. I went to Best Buy and they want $69+ sales taxes= $75. I can buy the Razer Nostromo on Amazon for a total of $60 free shipping, no brainer.
