    hi i am thinking of buying a Logitech S530 kb and mouse to use with my macbook when i am at home. However i am hearing a lot about how this product and it's software is causing frequent kernel panics, especially when unplugging the USB dongle (which i will be doing a lot as i take my macbook with me quite often). I was wonder if Logitech has reeased any software updates to address this issue before i purchase this product? Thanks.

    Google Kernal Panics+Logitech S 530 and you'll find many similar stories about kernal panics with this product.

    Just go buy one. If it causes kernel panics, then return it.

    By the way, I had one for a few months and NEVER had any problems with it.

    I have a S530, and never bothered installing the software, and have never had a kernal panic. Not all of the little buttons on the sides of the keyboard work, but I don't really need them anyway.

    Anyone who owns this product and is running LCC having problems with kernel panics?

    I have an entire department of Logitech and Logitech Control Center users that never complain of any kernel panics.
