Great for Lightroom

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: I am a freelance editor in NYC and I love this thing! I've always wanted jog and shuttle control for my Final Cut workstation, and now I have it! I also have pretty much any other control I want for any other application! The hardware comes with customization software that allows you to quickly and easily create software profiles for the NuLOOQ that automatically load whenever each program in question is active on your desktop!
Summary: I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this. What I got was more than I bargained for. If you read the reviews ad people are unhappy with the set up, or think its a fancy scroll wheel, just take your time to set it up. I publish a 40 page newsletter a month, and I find it invaluable for making my way around InDesign and Photoshop. I it great to be able to zoom around, and I assign some shortcuts to the buttons to make my specific tasks easier.
Summary: Takes a bit of messing around to tune all the right settings for various apps. Wouldn't be without it. You can make it as fast and responsive as you want. Love it for surfing the web, mail, osx Finder and of course Photoshop and Bridge.
Must have on Windows, if you are a photographer working with Photoshop

Summary: Been waiting for the Windows version since I saw the product at PMA on Mac earlier this year. Used the Windows version from the very moment it was available. I touch up pictures all day long and being able to move the picture around all day is great. Tiring using the space key and moving the mouse for hours on on end. Adjusting brush size is the best. Bracket keys never cut it for me.
Summary: The NuLOOQ is an inexpensive and really fun way to fly through images in Photoshop when cloning out specks or needing to move throughout an image with lightning speed. The Pan/Zoom function is tremendous! It's a programmable tool where you can add photoshop tools and actions to the Tooldial for instant access at the mouse location, rather than moving to the menu bar all the time.
Summary: I bought a NuLOOQ when it first came out for the Mac. I've been an Illustrator & Visualization Artist for 17 years now. I have an iMac at home and a PC at my full-time job. It takes a little while to break some old habbits, but once you do, and get used to the NuLOOQ device, you'll never go back! I love this smart toy! I got so hooked on it, I recently purchased one for my PC here at work. If there is anyone out there that thinks it's just for the Mac your wrong!
Summary: Logitech scored a big plus with this item. The important thing is that you really need the processing power for the device to run properly. The first review is really unfair. Logitech does not hide the fact that you really should be using the NuLOOQ on a G5 processor. It says so right on the box. I'm using it on a G4 1.8ghz and I feel that I'm behind a bit with power. To review the NuLOOQ on a G4 800mhz is ludicrous.
