I respectfully disagree. The G13's main selling points are in fact its flaws. While it has more buttons than the Nostro, those 'more buttons' are poorly placed and several require moving your hand to hit unless you have monkey fingers. There is a very nice LCD screen. It shows information by your hand. This is about as useful as looking at your keyboard while you play. The analog thumbstick is responsive. However, I found it to be poking my thumb uncomfortably after a while, making it unpleasant to use for extended gaming sessions. The overall ergonomics of the unit required a flat hand profile. The natural shape of the hand is cupped, which meant the G13 was asking me to conform to it rather than supporting my hand. Overall, I found that for less money, the Nostromo hits the perfect combo of form and function, while eschewing distracting bells and whistles.
