Excerpt: This powerpoint presentation remote is packed with features. The USB stub that interfaces with the presentation computer is stored INSIDE the remote for transit (very convenient). The remote has a button to LOCK the settings so that a nervous presenter will not push the wrong buttons in error. Finally, the remote has a built-in laser pointer to allow the presenter to highlight portions of the presentation.
Excerpt: It took me longer to open the child-proof packaging than it did to figure out how to use the remote. Other than installing batteries (which were included) and plugging in the USB adapter, there wasn't much to do other than turn it on and start pressing buttons. It was that simple. The remote is simple enough that you don't need to look at the buttons to know what they do, which makes for a quick learning curve if you need a new remote for an urgent presentation.
Excerpt: I am on my second unit now. They have both worked great without any problems. My first one was crushed in an outer pocket of my suit case so I purchased the same unit again. Now stored inside the suit case when I travel by air. I have been using this model unit for the last five years and average about 12 hours use per week. AAAA battery life seems pretty good since I use the laser pointer all of the time during my classes pointing to my PowerPoint presentation.
