Summary: We used this remote for Worship Service. The stage is 2 ft off the ground, and around 70 feet with no obsticals in the way to the PC which is elevated 5 ft in the air. The operation was very intermittent even with fresh batteries. The solution was an easy fix, I went to staples and got their longest USB extension cable (6ft i think) and put the SMK USB receiver as high as i could. (around 11 ft total) ... problem solved. Works flawlessly.
works well throughout our auditorium. would be better if it could be used as a mouse as well.

Summary: this pointer works from over 50 feet away, throughout our auditorium. it is very good for clicking through a powerpoint presentation. It would be even better if it could be used as a mouse, and not just a pointer.
Summary: I bought this for church where the computer that controls the slides is upstairs and across the sanctuary. I knew that folks would point at the slides - a 90+ degree angle from the computer. It works great! They don't have to point the device at the computer to have it respond and the laser pointer is nice and bright.
Summary: I was looking for a Apple compatible presentation remote and decided on this one after much deliberation. I work for a church and we need something that anyone could use to control powerpoint presentations without much training. This remote exceeded my expectations and has proven to be rugged wile still remaining simple for our less experienced users. The GOOD- 4 Easy to use buttons no extra junk that confuses people and messes up presentations on the fly.
