I'm really disappointed because it's very high quality and I thought it ...

amy m. takken, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I read reviews and postings from the 3Dconnexion forum which indicated that this mouse could be used as a "normal" windows mouse. After installing the driver and getting nowhere, I called tech support where I was quickly informed that there was no driver to allow that. I'm really disappointed because it's very high quality and I thought it would be the perfect mouse. This mouse pops up under searches for ergonomic or "mouse alternatives".

Functional but will not work as intended.

Jeff W McGrew, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: The mouse arrived in good shape, but it will not work with Blender. If you plan to by this for Blender, don't buy it. It was a waste of my time and money. All the controls were reversed. I tried all the options in the driver to reverse specific directions, or reverse all, but nothing worked. Apparently this did work around Blender 2.4 but the drivers have not been updated to work with the newer blender.

Doesn't work well with Mac OSX Mountain Lion

PI, Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: If you have a mac, the driver for the space navigator doesn't work. It works the first time you install, but the next time you reboot, it doesn't seem to work. The only way to get it to work is you have to reinstall the driver every time you start your computer. what a pain. until they fix this, stay away. When it works, it is a good 3D mouse.

Ouch!

Laif, Amazon

  • Summary: Well, I certainly don't find this input device very usable. Even after a short time of playing with various programs like Google Earth and SecondLife my hand starts hurting. The problem is mainly that software designers like those at Google demand that in order to use the thing to fly very slowly over a city, your hand needs to constantly press the knob in the lateral direction, where there is the most resistance.

Doesn't seem to work well on mac

msfeldstein, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: This is a really great product which i would have loved to use, but it didn't seem to work very well on my mac. In SketchUp it seemed to have flaky performance, and i couldn't for the life of me figure out how to change any settings for it. In blender it just didn't work at all. High quality hardware, low quality support.

Careful it may get discontinued!

James S., Newegg
23 October 2011
  • Pros: - Works like it should, like the older version did...
  • Cons: This company is quick to discontinue support/drivers for there products only to replace them with identical models. I had a spacetraveler3 that worked fine but was forced (my company really) to buy a new one because there were no drivers! No feature improvements, same product! Greedy company! Look at there forum, don't take my word for it! Buyer beware!

SDConnexion SpaceNavigator

  • Summary: Wir haben die Maus erhalten und diese ist soweit auch in Ordnung. Mangelhaft jedoch ist, dass ich seit 6 Wochen immer noch keine Rechnung erhalten habe und wir diese als Unternehmen benötigen würden.

Lernkurve sehr steil

Elchblut, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Ich arbeite in Cinema 4D und hoffte, durch eine 3D Maus eine Arbeitserleichterung zu bekommen. Der SpaceNavigator ignoriert aber alle durch Videospiel-Controller und Mäuse gelernten Bewegungsabläufe. Es ist sogar eine Trainingssoftware dabei, um die Bewegungen zu lernen. Ich bin nur mit Mühe durch den Parcours gekommen. Die Verarbeitung ist allerdings großartig. Und wenn man sich die Mühe macht, die Bedienung zu erlernen, ist der SpaceNavigator sicher sein Geld wert.

nette Gimmik

itac, Amazon
16 August 2012
  • Summary: Da ich hobby- und berufsmäßig viel mit 3D mache - hauptsächlich Cinema4D (8.5) - wollte ich mal probieren ob ich dadurch einen Vorteil habe. Treiber gibt es für C4D, mit umfangreichen Einstellungen. Ich habe auch nach längeren probieren (6 Monate) keine für mich nützlichen Einsatzzweck gefunden - mit Tastatur und Grafiktablett bin ich viel schneller und effektiver unterwegs. Einzig in Google Earth ist es gut zum umher"fliegen", aber dafür zu teuer.

Hardware Hui, Software Pfui

Kaiser, Amazon
16 January 2012
  • Summary: Von der Hardware her ist dies ein Top-Produkt. Es lässt viele Möglichkeiten der Nutzung zu. Sei es für behinderte Menschen, in 3D Anwendungen oder in Umgebungen wo man keine Maus, Keyboard oder Touchscreen benutzen kann. Theoretisch ist dieses Gerät mit unglaublichen Potential ausgestattet. Theoretisch. Die Software kann dieses Potential leider nicht ausnutzen.
