Doesn't work for OS X Lion

Summary: Took a while to figure this out, including a call to Logitech support where they said they had to escalate the issue and get back to me, but didn't! Finally after installing Lion on my second mac, I realized that is why the thing went dead. Put it back on an older Snow Leopard system, works fine, back on Lion, lifeless. Disappointed in Logitech for dropping the ball. How hard could it be to make the driver compatible with Lion?
Summary: I've been using this for a few years. I don't know if it's still officially supported but it works great for me. I've programmed each function to correlate with some editing/navigation function in Lightroom (I did this with Lightroom 2 and had to redo it for 3). A logitech Revolution mouse in one hand and the Navigator in the other and I rarely have to touch the keyboard to edit.
Superb in every way, especially for Photo, Video and Music

Summary: It is funny to see how some play the review wars by discrediting superior products to drive potential buyers toward different choices. This device(I use it for 2 years) is superbly designed, very reliable, very useful and takes some time to learn to use. Because of so many touching surfaces it takes few occasions before you could use it intuitively. It makes great helper in Photoshop, in Illustrator, in Acrobat, in all of my video and sound editors.
Biggest assets are quality and maximized functionality in minimal footprint

Summary: I'm very impressed with this product. Quality is top notch as noted by others. I also wanted to address my original concern with someone's comment about top buttons (triggers) being loud and difficult to press: it's quite the opposite. While not touch-sensitive (capacitive), these surrounding buttons require low pressure to activate and emit a soft click. An interesting surprise was finding out that the middle button is a capacitive one.
Summary: FYI, logitech has discontinued this product. They even pulled the drivers off the website. So - regarding some people's issues with usability with software packages (like having to continue to use CS2 while waiting for Nulooq to support CS3 for example) - if this product stops working with the next upgrade you will either have to 1.) not upgrade your software or 2.) stop using this device. So get this only if you plan on using compatible (old?) software for a while.
Summary: The problem with this navigator is that Logitech abandoned support and updates for OSX 10.5. So it will still work for zooming in and out of applications and scrolling but there's no software to customize applications to interact with the navigator. I used it extensively for Photoshop in OSX 10.4 and it was very efficient to speedup my workflow. Too bad Logithech decided to strip this great tool of its functionality.
Summary: I needed to download newer software than came with the device because of a recent upgrade to OSX10.5. The device is either more limited than I thought it would be, or its real power remains hidden. I still can't get it to change my brush size in CS3, which is like the main thing it's touted as being able to do. It is, however, the BEST way to make one's way around Google Earth.
Summary: I like the idea of this product, but it has no support for the most recent Adobe products that I wanted to use it for, and I've not developed a habit of using it. So it's just a nice light effect for my office.
Summary: I have a windows xp machine, and this nulooq was not that easy to set up on it. I had to unplug it and put it back in, because it kept scrolling downward. In photoshop CS2, it worked okay for panning and zooming. The brush adjustments for the touch-sensitive tool tuner at the top was not working. The little dialog would come up while in photoshop, that displays the brush size. It would change as I tune the dial, but the brush itself doesn't change.
