Well I picked up one of these at the weekend in a department store here in Milan, only cost me €19 (about $20). Gotta say it works better than the n50 speedpad so far. Software isn't quite as polished, doesn't function quite as neatly but the thumb buttons area can be adjusted back and forth so it fits all hands, and also the gel wrist pad can be adjusted. I have only installed the "Thrustmapper" software and have yet to try the talk buttons with the teamtalk software and a mic. I'll try to remember to post back again once I have tried all its functionality out.
