    "One of the few stable mouse drivers available."

    October 31, 2013  |   By PaulKB

    Version: SteerMouse 4.1.7

    Pros

    I use using a Logitech Optical Mouse USB with Mac OS 10.7. The mouse driver software provided by Logtech was unstable, requiring reboots of the OS when it crashed. (Currently Logitech does not have a compatible driver to download on their site.) I tried USB OverDrive since it is free. It was equally unstable, incompatible, caused problems and appears to be no longer updated.

    SteerMouse works with my Logitech mouse. It provides all the functions of the original Logitech Driver as well as some functions not included using the Logitech driver. It is stable and compatible with OS 10.7 on my late 2006 iMac. BTW I am using SteerMouse version 4.1.7.

    Cons

    There is nothing I can think of to disappoint me about SteerMouse

    Summary

    If you need a driver for your mouse you should definitely look at SteerMouse. There is a free trial period before you need to pay. You can test SteerMouse before buying to determine its compatibility.

    "Great all-purpose mouse software"

    May 22, 2011  |   By gdfrost

    Version: SteerMouse 4.1.1

    Pros

    For those using some less recent Kensington products where drivers have not been updated, this software can be a lifesaver.

    Cons

    none come to mind currently.

    Summary

    Useful, reliable mouse-driver software for Snow Leopard users.

    "Works well with Logitech mouse and others."

    January 20, 2011  |   By hgm--2008

    Version: SteerMouse 4.0.3

    Pros

    I have a Logitech mouse. The mouse driver caused serious (reboot type) crashes on my Mac (10.6.6). SteerMouse works perfectly, configures all buttons.

    Cons

    None. It works.

    Summary

    I've had two mice that SteerMouse has worked with better than the original drivers. It has recognized every mouse that I had. Excellent program.

    "It works with effort"

    October 26, 2009  |   By thompsbk

    Version: SteerMouse 4.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been using Steermouse with Logitech mice for a couple of years. It works well with one mouse. It is a pain to program the buttons for most mice. Occasionally I want to use a different mouse. steermouse does not recognize that a new mouse is being used so it tries to use the settings from the previous mouse. The settings must be changed everytime I switch a mouse. I would give Steermouse 5 stars if programing were much easier and If it would allow me to switch mice without having to do the settings all over again.

    "Does all you'd expect"

    October 25, 2009  |   By rskinner

    Version: SteerMouse 4.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been dabbling with several replacements for Kensington's antiquated driver for the ExpertMouse. Steermouse is what I've settled upon, because it just works.

    "Not quite right"

    October 2, 2009  |   By manny khool

    Version: SteerMouse 4.0.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Overall, this software works well.

    However, since version 4, if I put my Mac to sleep manually, SteerMouse won't let it wake up. I am forced to restart my computer.
