"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: 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 .
Summary: purchased on 07-17-2010 - failed on 07-28-2010. You'd pull the trigger and the cursor would go off the screen and wouldnt come back. tryed to recalibrate but it did'nt work. sent it back and purchased a logitech.

Summary: I actually used the very first Gyration mouse...a breakthrough at the time and something that helped me get through a horrible case of repetitive strain due to mouse work. Using a mouse in the air and getting my arms off the desk was a huge help and it's something I still switch to using an air mouse for at times. I more recently got a Logitech Air Mouse which became even more useful to me when I set up my laptop as a Media PC.
That's not me on the packaging jumping happily into the air ...

Summary: Taking this device out of the box was honestly a bit of a let down. It had the look and feel of a knock off product that I might've purchased in a Chinatown computer store, replete with cheesy packaging and - initially - silly looking accompanying materials, like the charging base, the software disc and the lame product guide. I can see this initial presentation turning off picky consumers and prosumers alike. Prepare for returns folks.
