    ok, my (first) MP just arrived today. i plugged it in my screens and it worked jsut fine. im satisfied overall, except that the mouse is really annoying.

    under windows XP with my MX1000, i can drag the cursor through 2 screens (total 1200x3200) in one single drag without having to move my wrist.

    now under Tiger 10.4, i have to drag 2-3 times to drag the cursor over only ONE screen. this is i already turn the "Tracking" setting under Keyboard & Mouse settings to "Fast".

    is there anywehre else or somehow i can set the mouse cursor to move faster?

    Whoops, sorry. Isee that now. I did that, and now things seem close to what I had in Win...

    I think there is some Mouse Accellerator available somewhere. You might try that option...

    thanks. this helps a little. but still, it doesn't feel quite like how it is in XP

    edit: i just plugged the MX Revolution in, and it's totally different (i haven't installed Set Point 3.01 yet). but the mighty mouse still acts the same. so i guess it's the mouse's algorithm, not the OS.
