Features
High-end performance. Mid-range price.
Simply push, pull, tilt or twist the SpaceExplorer's controller cap to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate 3D objects and environments. SpaceExplorer features an array of easy-to-reach function keys labeled and pre-programmed with commands from leading design applications. Keys automatically map as you move between applications for unified navigation.

50% fewer mouse clicks. 30% greater productivity.
Gone are the days when 3D navigation meant endless mouse clicks to move around an object or to fly through space and remembering how to change views and control objects within the X, Y, Z axes...one tedious step at a time. Plus, it is no longer necessary to remember different application's unique commands for manipulating 3D objects or scenes.

Using SpaceExplorer together with a mouse engages both your hands in a natural, intuitive work style. One hand drives the SpaceExplorer, positioning your model, then rotating, panning and zooming in one single, fluid motion. Your mouse hand can simultaneously edit the model or select menu items.

The SpaceExplorer button array includes two numbered buttons for programmability of the user's favorite application commands, plus keys for Speed, Views, 2D only, Fit, Control Panel and keyboard modifiers. This enables you to master any supported 3D application without having to leave the device to reach for the keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsdisapointed

Pros: this is very well built and extreamly nice.

Cons: I thought for$300 I could also use it to control all functions like with a normal mouse. I found out that I need both type mice.

Other Thoughts: traing time is a must when learning 3D control.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Mouse in the House!

Pros: Mouse is very accurate and offers true 6DOF movement. THE industry standard when using Geovisionary, AutoCAD, and other apps that require 6DOF mouse. Well placed programmable function buttons. Easy to train end users how to navigate. Make sure you install latest drivers from the 3Dconnexion website.

Cons: None at all!!! - Just wish they had different colors!

Other Thoughts: Very reliable and used daily

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent functionality, very ergonomic.

Cons: I have liked it alot, save for a few durability issues:

After the first 3 months or so, the soft rubber coating covering the black surfaces started to peel off. Not a big deal since I finished the job and just scraped the rest off, but it was somewhat nicer with the coating.

After the first 6 months, the unit started to loose it's calibration periodically. Now, about once daily I have to open the control panel and press "calibrate" to stop it from rotating my view continuosly. Another minor annoyance.

Other than that, I like the functionality of this little guy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Device

Pros: I use this product every day at work. I swear by it, and yes it takes some getting used to. Those of you who use 3D CAD systems such as CATIA, SolidWorks, ProE, ... will love using this device. It allows such precise control when moving around in your environment. Extremely ergonomical, better than the previous model. The blue light is cool.

Cons: Buttons. Gotta have more buttons. I use them all day long, every day. And I don't have it at home.

Other Thoughts: THIS IS NOT A MOUSE! Do not rate this product or any other product low because you thought it was a mouse substitute! Do others a favor and research the products a little before you buy them and give them a bad rap.
