    Hi, does anyone currently use a Logitech Bluetooth MX900 (optical) with their MBP?
    I can configure the buttons fine, have no connection issues etc. But the pointer movement is quite jerky.

    It seems acceptable when swinging it about the screen. But when trying to do accurate tasks like click on a small button, it feels as if it is dragging.

    I have the tracking speed almost maxed out but reducing it doesn't really affect the dragging sensation, although it does smooth out the jerky movement.

    I've tried another cheap USB optical mouse but it's the same, jerky situation. I also tried a mouse mat but this hasn't helped either.

    I'm assuming this is to do with lack of Logitech OS X support - The mouse works flawlessly under windows, however I think I remember a similar issue with Ubuntu.
    I'm baffled why the generic USB mouse was no different tho!?

    Is this just general OS X mouse acceleration?

    I had/have the same problem with my Logitech MX Revolution.

    I noticed right away that it was not as precise as on my PC.

    I have no idea why.

    Well I found soemthing called Steermouse which apparently helps. I'll give it a trial and see if it solves it. Surely though, this isn't how mice are supposed to behave in OS X?


    EDIT: Oh, looks like this could be an OS X issue...
