  • Conclusion: Anyone who thinks they have fully embraced Google Earth without trying this device would be wrong. Google SketchUp fans will love it, too.
  • Pros: Generally easy to use and intuitive. Takes flying with Google Earth to a whole new level.
  • Cons: Can be tough to remember the device's many movement options. Truly ideal for the ambidextrous.

3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks

PC Magazine
27 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The SpaceNavigator for Notebooks is every bit as useful and intuitive with 3D applications as the original SpaceNavigator. But unless you need to lug a 3D mouse along on your daily commute, you should probably just stick with the cheaper desktop model.
  • Pros: Innovative design. Smooth movement. Simple software integration. Makes navigating Google Earth and Second Life a blast.
  • Cons: Could be more travel-friendly. Pricey. Base needs to be steadier. For use in 3D applications only.

A Better Way to Navigate in AutoCAD

PC Magazine
18 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Let's face it: Mice, trackballs, and digitizers haven't evolved much since the 1990s. If you're looking for a better way to navigate, take a look at the 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator ($300 street). This keyboard/pointer combo, which you use in conjunction with your mouse or other pointing device, might pay for itself in enhanced productivity.

  • Excerpt: Invention of the computer mouse must have been one of the biggest innovations in the field of computer related hardware. This rodent kept the same basic design for a very long time but this all have changed now. Regular computer mouse is good for many things but still there is room for improvements. This is why there are other pointing devices that try to specialize to do certain things. We have tablets, trackballs, jog dials, joysticks, pointing sticks etc.

3DConnexion SpaceNavigator Personal Edition

10 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Quick, call Maxwell Smart. We’ve identified a KAOS plot aimed at destroying American worker productivity. Now thanks to 3DConnexion, that evil plot to have 90 percent of Americans flying all over the globe using Google Earth—instead of working — just got easier, and thus more KAOtic. Meet the SpaceNavigator Personal Edition, which works as a controller for 3D applications like Google Earth and NASA World Wind.
  • Pros: Cheap, comes preconfigured for common multimedia apps, Google Earth.
  • Cons: Not particularly useful for other apps; not programmable.

3DConnexion Space Navigator

XSReviews
15 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Overall, the 3Dconnexion Space Navigator is a very tidy product that is very good for 3D apps and software. In Google Earth, after a little time, I was able to master the controls and easily navigate around the planet whilst panning, zooming and rotating simultaneously. My only concerns with the product are that it won’t really appeal to that many target markets as the only users who can really fully utilise it are 3D designers and artists who need 3D software.
  • Pros: Very easy to use, Comfortable, PE version is competitively priced, Stylish
  • Cons: Could be a little heavier, SE version a lot more expensive for seemingly not much gain

3Dconnexion's SpaceNavigator for Notebooks

GadgetSpeak
7 July 2008
  • Summary: If you're one of those people that have to interact with virtual 3D worlds it's quite possible that you'll find using a mouse and keyboard either frustrating, limiting or both. A 2D pointing device just doesn't give enough flexibility to move in a 3D world.
