This is an awesome product. I have it for more than a year now and it works very well. I also purchased their n45, a joystick.

I play FPS, RTS and others genres, it fits all of them. Great piece of hardware, never crashed.

Make sure to check before purchasing the n50, they released the n52, which have a third row of buttons and a throttle.

Check it out. I will probably buy it in the next weeks.

I've had the n52 for a few months and that one certainly rocks. Don't know the n50 that well. I must say however that those of you consindering the n50 should also look at the n52. More buttons = more killing power

I've been seeing this in some of the malls for years, (can't remember it it was the n50 or n52) interesting product but certainly out of most normal gamers and some hardcores (like myself) price range. It cost about 15x that of a normal keyboard over here! o_O

I do think it's a nice product since I have one as well, but I haven't use it for a long time since the games are designed around normal keyboard and mouse, and it get really painful to reconfig all the keys for every new game and demo. And one of the biggest con of the N50 is the lack of spacebar, which should be one of the most used key for all FPS player, and I don't know how any FPS player can play without a spacebar... I tried to use the directional pad as jump, but I keep hitting the wrong direction.. oh well, maybe it's just me.
