Saw this on the xim3 subforum, looks nice. Synapse will probably ruin onboard memory functions. Looks great though.

Don't think they are reds, says tactile so maybe blue

and extra row of keys compared to the old model.. and a raised thumb button paddle, so finally they improved the problems on the old nostromo.  $130 tho, ouch.  I'll have to wait for a refurb sale haha.

Well, finally about time to retire the n52. It looks like a successor has finally arrived.

Only thing is the lack of a space button... argh. However, that dpad might not be @#$%, so using it in games might be a worthy option.

I use the circle above the dpad for space on the nostromo

Yeah, but I used what is by default as crouch, so on that I'm a little boned. Guess I can get used to using caps lock as cntl though.

Makes me wonder if someone did see those emails we sent them; this is literally exactly what a lot of us wanted, an n52 with mechanical keys and a most likely actually usable dpad (its likely at least not mushy and hard to press for extended periods, which is really all it needs to be.)
My only real worry is that we might need specialized xim support. Not a huge bother for me but I know many will be unhappy.

I think the "infinite control" deal is more referring to the capability to macro the @#$% out of it. Since it isn't a main keyboard it makes more sense than usual to totally remap the @#$% out of it.

well they claim that once you go online you can then use all features offline and it has 8 profiles.. but i still don't see no onboard memory signs..
