Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator Personal Edition USB (Personal Computers)
I bought this primarily to use with Ableton Live which is a music program and nothing to do with CAD or 3D applications. I did a lot of investigation prior to buying the product as I have been searching for something like this for a while. The Griffin alternative just seemed too simple a product for my liking. I eventually took the plunge and bought the Spacenavigator.
After installing a dedicated driver for the Navigator (search the web, it's well documented & even on the 3Dconnexion forums) I can now successfully navigate Ableton Live flawlessly. You can also configure this driver to work with any Windows applications. I take my hat off to RBC9 for writing this driver. This makes this product even more amazing!
I am quite fussy when purchasing items & always do a lot of research beforehand. I can safely say this product is absolute quality. You will not be disappointed with the build quality and flawless operation of this item.
I have also configured it to work with Google Picasa for browsing my photos (using the driver) and also use it to navigate Google Earth & Sketchup.
Overall an absolutely excellent product and very highly recommended. My iPhone was my absolute top gadget of 2008 (actually of all my gadgets!)... This Spacenavigator will probably be my top gadget of 2009!
