Excerpt: The product works, certainly! However the manufacturer in my opinion went out of its way to make it as hard as possible to interface it with various application. Sure, there is an SDK to hook it up, vendors who want it to work can make it so, probably for a price.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response
Summary: I used a ton of 3Dconnexion products at work, but we all use the same PC configuration leading to no issues at all from the spaceballs. I bought one from home to use on my new Windows 7 machine and the device is not recognized even with the latest drivers.
Summary: If you're a pro, 3dConnexion make higher-end navigators which you'd probably invest in. This one seems to have been aimed and priced at consumers, but with no thought about what software consumers might actually use.
Summary: Bought this device for use with Alibre Design 3D CAD software. Database on 3Dconnexion website states that SpaceNavigator is compatible with Alibre software. It isn't. Some of the functions work, i.e. rotate and zoom, but pan does not. Very unhelpful support when I contacted 3D about this.
Summary: Ordered this item from Amazon. Arrived fine. Downloaded the latest drivers from the website. After installation, ran Google Earth. The navigator does not do anything, pan, zoom, all not working. Personal Edition comes with no technical support.
