Delivered expeditiously; been unable to get it to work

Summary: It was delivered expeditiously, and the order was processed efficiently, but I have been unable to get it to work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and have read and followed the installation and operation instructions carefully. I will edit this review in due course.
Summary: The contact point for the battery charger disappeared after the first use. That renders the rechargable batteries unusable. Additionally, this remote mouse is difficult to use. Darn. Wish it would have just worked.
Summary: * No right-click when using the track ball * Poor battery life/no auto shut-off * on/off : mouse : presentation switch difficult to use. It would be great if it had the features of a USB mouse, but whit the current design.
Summary: I am a professional corporate educator and this is the worst device I have ever used. I will never buy another IOGear product as long as I live. This thing has a laundry list of problems. 1. It does not utilize a dongle for communication with the computer it uses a large base/cord combination.
Summary: I may not be the brightest when it comes to technology, but I have been frustrated with this phaser. I purchased it for my classroom, and I haven't really used it. This has not been a helpful tool. Too complicated, and only seems to function properly some of the time.
Summary: Confirmed by Iogear Customer service: There is NO 'RIGHT CLICK' function when used as trackball. Worthless to be wireless and have to go to the keyboard every time you need a basic 'right click' ALSO: CAUSES BLUE SCREEN TOTAL SYSTEM CRASH with Windows Visa Basic after 5-10 minutes of use.
Pros: NONE * DO NOT BUY!
Cons: -> NO RIGHT CLICK WHEN USING TRACKBALL! -> CRASHES (blue screen) with Windows Vista Basic -> No Instructions/documentation -> Software included is not for the product sold, and does not work with the hardware at all. ->Poor Wireless Connection - skips
UPDATE: NO "RIGHT CLICK BUTTON" when using as track ball.

Summary: NEW UPDATE: FOUND BEST PRODUCT. LENOVO "Mini Wireless Keyboard" model N5901. $39.00 if you can get a deal (usually via [...] or [...] ... or any deal site. Often goes on sale. Recently $36 with free shipping. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT AT ANY PRICE. I LOVE THE LENEVO.
Summary: Channel reset button is shown on the Base unit in the documentation but both items I got did not have a reset button. Only on the mouse and I said before it did not reconnect the mouse when it was pushed.
Pros: Great idea. Unit looks good and when working does work as a mouse/presentor should. However...
Cons: This is the second unit for me. Returned first unit because it was NOT detected during computer start up unless the USB cord was disconnected/reconnected. Tried on numerous PC's & same results. Second unit seemed to work fine for about three weeks then started the same thing. Channel reset on mou...
Summary: Overall design is good. Unit is very light weight for how big it is, which makes it feel cheap. But the erratic performance really kills its usefulness. If this unit had worked properly I would have given it 4 eggs.
Pros: Works as a table top mouse if synced (see below). Works as a laser pointer.
Cons: Unusable as a presentation mouse because the trackball requires significant thumb pressure to make the movement register as cursor movement on screen. This defeats the purpose of the trackball also being a button, because it gets pressed down any time you use it to move the cursor (if you dont pr...
