There are several other similar game-keypads. All of them are made for the left hand, and have labels for WASD and the surrounding keys and involve the use of the left thumb. Some of them, such as the Nostromo are also slightly tilted to the left.
I don't know if all of them are programmable, though. Some are only in software under Windows. Without drivers, the Nostromo defaults to the left hand and WASD.
* Saitek Pro Gamer Command Unit: More keys, Joystick instead of D-pad. No scrollwheel.
* Logitech G13: More keys, LCD display, Larger joystick. No scrollwheel
* Delux T9. No joystick, No scrollwheel. Has thumb-keys on both sides, so I think that it could be used with the right hand as well even though the keys are labeled. Backlighting.
* Genius Ergomedia 500. Like a bulky ugly Nostromo n52 with fewer keys. No thumb key. Has both D-pad and scrollwheel.
None of them has mechanical key switches. Ripster modded his Belkin Nostromo n52 with Cherry MX Blacks, but it looked like a lot of work.
Then there are other pads that have even shallower, more gamepad-like buttons. Revoltec Flightpad, Cyber Snipa, Fang, Wolf King. I know even less about those. I don't consider them to be keyboards.

It has easy access to 6 buttons, where as on a keyboard you only really use the thumb for the spacebar. its perfect for MMO's, although for games like dota/HoN i still use my keyboard mostly. I've had the nostromo and used to for heavy gaming for about 4 months and its still holding up good. I would say that the woot price is really good. I tried out the G13 and i didn't see much of an advantage over a normal keyboard because of how big the keypad is. The nice thing about the nostromo is that its small so you dont have to shift your hand at all to hit all the keys.
