Summary: There are so few buttons on this thing. Who would have thunk you would need to keep the directions because the obvious buttons are not the ones you need to use to advance a slide on a PowerPoint presentation. I also still have no idea if it actually turns off or if I just have to take out the battery. You really get what you pay for here (very little). That is not to say it does not work. It works fine. It just has some major design flaws.
Summary: Teaching with a presentation remote is a declaration of freedom. No longer having to seat in front of the computer to flip through my Keynote or PowerPoint presentations allows for more participative discussion. The Keyspan's cluttered yet complete interface provides all the functions of the competition at a fraction of the price. Moving the cursor, flipping pages, laser-pointing... It's all there. Regrettably, it only worked for just three months.
Summary: I've given up using this product because it is just not consistent enough. It will work well for short periods, but then I have to click the button repeatedly for a slide to move forward. Sometimes only every third click will work, which is very annoying when you are standing in front of an audience and talking about what is about to appear. This has happened in several talks, so I doubt it is anything to do with RF fields in particular environments.
