Does anyone know if there are plans on making an official driver for the G400 mouse? I've been using my old MX500 for the past four years and I just can't find another mouse with the buttons and the feel of the MX500. The G400 looks promising, but without an official driver, I'm not going chance it. I've used steermouse and usb overdrive to try and get a MX518 to work and the cursor movement was way too jerky.

I would also like to know. I was too quick and bought the G400 before I found out that there are no driver for Mac OSX (10.7).
It may well be the Mac is not a gaming platform, but there are also many that use this type of mice for professional work. I work with 3d and have been very pleased with my old Logitech MX400 mouse (RIP).
Please make a driver for it!

I'm sorry to hear that. CharlesB can you suggest a mouse with the same functionality that there are a driver for? Or there is being made a driver for?
And are in production.

There is one unique solution: The G500 mouse has an onboard memory profile. It does require configuration on a PC, but you can burn the configurations to the mouse and use it on a mac without drivers (yet get all of the performance and button assignments). In other words, you can configure the mouse in Boot Camp or with something like Parallels, then use it on the mac side.
If you do go this route, make sure to set your mouse's report rate to 125/second, as report rates over that will cause OS X to have problems with the mouse tracking smoothly (It's one of the odd behaviors that Mac gamers have to deal with)

I also want drivers for the Mac, please! Until then I'm using unofficial ones from http://plentycom.jp/en/steermouse/ but if they can do it... Please make it happen!

It's unfortunate, really, that Logitech cares so little about their OS X counterpart. This is the third Logitech product I've purchased in the last year that has insufficient support for OS X.
I don't care if I can game with the mouse on Mac ... just provide refresh rates and functionality so that it works. Honestly, we have mice this good and we still can't make them cross-platform? When I move the mouse on OS X, it jumps all over the screen. On Windows, it works just fine.

I signed up just to post in this thraed.
I have been a logieh fan for many many years. The 500 series that I've had on various computers are my favorite mice.
I just bought a new Mac Mini and a G400 mouse for it. The G400 cursor jumps all over the screen and the mouse is completely unusable.
I'm disappointed to see there are no plans to support mac os x with this mouse.
I'm going to have to return it. Logitech has always been the only brand I would consider, but after this I'll have to look at other brands nows.
Very disappointing indeed.

I recently got a Mac and I also use Linux and Windows. For me, it almost works good without the drivers on the Mac. The only problem is that the pointer moves too slow. So now I either have to deal with this annoying problem or add more clutter to my desk with another mouse because Logitech doesn't care.

When you say drivers, what do you mean? Do you just want the driver itself, so that cursor movement is handled correctly (with the assumption that it is currently not)? Or are you asking for additional options on top of that? If so, which ones?
