"Looked good, worked at desk, but failed in lecture hall"
5 April 2013
Pros: Worked fantastically at my desk. Nice features, felt a little weird in hand, but after an hour it was easy to use. Good software to customize, I was excited to use the mouse as a presenter which was the reason for my purchase.
Cons: I set up the mouse on my computer for my class in a 500 student lecture hall. I couldn't get 4 meters (about 12 feet) away from my computer without the mouse disconnecting. I tried the lecture halls computer... same thing, disconnect at 4 meters
Summary: This is my second time returning one of these mice. The first one developed a loose internal part, and the scroll wheel stopped working. After returning that, the second one worked for about 1 hour. I then left it on its charger overnight, and it is now completely dead. After using this and the Logitech MX for a few years now, I think I will give a touchpad a try -- air mice just seem to be too unreliable.
Summary: I purchased this mouse for use on my HTPC when I recently updated to Windows 8. I currently use the SMK-Link Wireless Ultra-mini Touchpad Keyboard (VP6364) but thought the air mouse would work better for Windows 8. Pros: The mouse works at great distances as advertised Has a charger so you don't have to replace batteries. Cons: Holding the trigger in to move the mouse is annoying.
Summary: I have been disappointed but content with this mouse for almost 2 years now but it's time to say goodbye. 1st: The driver/software wasn't working and I couldn't program the buttons on it for special features. 2nd: The scroll wheel started malfunctioning after about a year and I can't scroll efficiently. Unfortunately I will not purchase another one of these unless it has significant 5 star reviews.
Koolertron Kills Gyration Air Mouse Elite & Improves on Gyration Air Music Remote
23 February 2012
Summary: I've been a longtime HTPC user and have used the Gyration Air Music Remote for several years. The remote was finally starting to break down, so I was searching for a new alternative and tried the Gyration Air Mouse Elite , Cideko Wireless Air Keyboard , and finally found my perfect replacement in the Koolertron Air Fly Mouse & Keyboard .
