I'm logging a lot of video footage and interviews, and I'm thinking of springing for a foot pedal to use to control the movie files as I watch them. It'll save a lot of time.

Anyone use a food pedal when transcribing or logging on their computer? Anyone have one they like? I'm using a macbook pro. There's oddly not too much about this stuff in the usual forums I look at for such advice, so I figured I'd see if anyone here has a recommendation or a warning about any product.
