Summary: I have been a Debian linux user since Potato was released in 2000. This mouse is plug and play with Wheezy. The Motion Tools package is of no use to me, but left click, right click, and the scroll wheel work fine. That is all I need to watch video of surf the web through my computer connected to a wall mounted LCD TV.
Summary: This mouse is ideal for media center setups where you can sit on the couch and use the mouse without having to reach for a flat surface. My only complaint is the positioning of the buttons, which make it sometimes awkward to click with your thumb.
Summary: This is the 3rd Gyration product I have purchased and they have completed failed to disappoint once again. I have had excellent success in multiple environments with this product as well as all previous purchases (including a few for office execs who liked to put their PC on a big screen in their office for presentations. one device for everyday mouse use plus multiple added features, and no transition time.
Summary: UPDATE: After using this in a classroom to present the course material to students (mainly Powerpoint presentations), I now consider the Air Mouse to be indispensable. If you are a teacher, this thing is a must. Being able to move the cursor around without actually being in front of your PC allows for an uninterrupted presentation flow. Highly recommended!
Summary: This is the first time I have even seen an air mouse. When I frist tried it I was literally laughing out loud! Very very cool device! The mouse is very precise both on and off the table, I love the trigger function to enable the mouse mode, its lightweight but doesn't feel insignificant in the hand and it fits right in. I also love the little docking station it comes in, the suspended in air look is even embraced when it's charging.
Very nice and smooth air mouse. Works both on air and surface. Perfect for giving presentation and for media center.

Summary: Gyration Air Mouse Elite (GYM5600NA) is a very nice and ergonomic air mouse. It works well on surface/the desk, and also works well on the air (which is the main appeal of this air mouse). On air mode, it is very smooth, and practical/easy to use. This air mouse is perfect for giving presentation. It is also great for Media Center and Home Theater. You can customize the buttons or just use the standard/default setting. Pros: 1. Surface-less capability (air mode) 2.

Summary: I have to give quite a few powerpoint presentations, and I'm also the type that tends to walk around while I'm doing it. Several years ago, I considered using a small remote device that had forward and backward buttons on it to advance the powerpoint slides. I decided against it because it was fairly high-priced for what it was, had only one very specific use, and the range wasn't very good. So, imagine my surprise when this product arrived in the mail.
