Summary: I was very happy with this, it works on both windows and linux. It also works with both MS PowerPoint and libreoffice with no difference between the two. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the packaging says that you can start a slide show by pressing the laser pointer button, which doesn't work.
Pros: Works with most ubuntu distros and windows computers.
Cons: The windows computer I tried it on wasn't hooked up to the internet so it didn't work until I put it online and did some updates. Couldn't get it to work on xubuntu.
Excerpt: The product functions exactly as expected. We utilize 10 of these in our classrooms. Occasionally one will break (I have had an average of one break per year I have worked here), but for the most part they function well.
Excerpt: No extra bells and whistles here, just a simple remote that can start, move forward, move backward, or hide your presentation. Start feature does not work with my MacBook, but does with my PC.
Summary: I have had 2 and neither lasted for even a year. I bought the second one thinking it was fluke that the first broke but it lasted only 4 or 5 months too. I don't use them that often so felt they should have lasted, with batteries removed so they didn't corrode, for longer
Excerpt: I purchased two of these remotes for use in our church building and they work pretty well. The only thing that I don't like about these is that the advertised distance of 60' is only if there is a direct line of sight. I had the computer sitting on a pew maybe 3 or 4 pews in front of me and the remote would not work. Other than that these are great. We have since positioned the transmitter in a higher place and it works very well.
Pros: Durable, Easily Viewed, Lightweight, Long Lasting
