Summary: So these are the Pros: -It has a good feel to your hand - Driver installation is a breeze -It has all the necessary buttons to avoid having run to your pc all the time -the mouse control is very manageable -it has a durable appearance Cons -the laser button is awkwardly placed (it should be at the top and not middle) -the battery cover is very loose ( I used a piece of folded paper over the battery to add some thickness, so the cover would be firmly attached) I hope...
Summary: I bought this when I got a teaching job a few months ago. It worked fine for the few presentations I needed to do. I haven't used it in a while, but for a medium priced presenter, it did just fine. I can't comment on every little feature because I didn't make it do everything it should be able to, but the laser and presenter part (KEY to why I bought it) worked swell. Easy to use. Easy to store. Decent deal for the amount of money it cost.
Summary: I bought this for an important presentation and it worked just fine. However I bought it because it has a mouse feature and I thought I would be able to use that to start a movie however that did not work and I had to use the keyboard to start and stop the movie.
Summary: I bought this for my Mac - I use a MacBook Air that doesn't work with Apple's infrared remotes. This model has an integrated USB fob which I love for how it's integrated into the remote so it has a "home" after the presentation. The mouse capability with a "nub" on the remote is pretty worthless; feels like going back to a ThinkPad with a bad keyboard nub. It might work for some if you dial-back the mouse sensitivity on your computer.
Summary: I use this presentation mouse at my desk, not for presentations. No desktop mouse is comfortable for me anymore. This is a perfect solution. I have been using for about a week. I can move the pointer around easily after a few days of getting used to it, and the left and right mouse buttons can be used with the same hand or with the opposite hand for speedier operation. No setup required, just plug in and go. I am impressed.
Summary: I owned one of these for about three years until it disappeared from my classroom yesterday. The device worked flawlessly for me for three years that I'd owned it. I'd use it almost every day of the 180 plus school days an year, and the only time I would ever have an issue with it was when the batteries needed changing/charging, which wasn't often--on average, no more than a couple of times a year.
Summary: This device is great for going through Powerpoints, and even scrolling through PDF's. I have no problem launching a Powerpoint, and then switching between that slideshow and other supporting data that I had already opened and minimized before I started my briefings. My only complaint is that there must be a clear line of sight between the wireless device and the receiving antenna.
