Not for academic use.

H. Sapiens "Amanda", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this for timer function, which buzzes at a short 2 minute warning and then a long - time's up! - buzz. This is excellent for time management in classrooms frought with mis-set clocks. I am using this presenter with a Mac running primarily powerpoint, pdf's from preview, and keynote sparingly.

Very Handy

Jeff nh, Amazon

  • Summary: I've only used a few other models for short periods of time so it is difficult to make this a comparative review. Having said that, this unit does exactly what it says it does. I like that the USB dongle fits inside the unit keeping you from losing it. Nice that it does not require any software though I suspect this is true for most of these. There is an LCD window with a timer (which is nice for some things) but you can't turn it into a clock.

Keyspan wi-fi moust might be better

Ben, Amazon
30 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this recently and it was easy to use. Most people have written on the positive side of things so I will just add some shortcomings. It can only be used for power point presentations. It would be better to use Keyspan or something like that which includes power point presentation and a mouse as well. Secondly, this does not have an auto time out.

Nice hardware but ....

Amazon Customer "EnergyChaser", Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: The hardware for this device is very good. The device is small and compact. I like the way that the USB receiver is stored inside the device when not in use. I would lose it if it was not stored like this. I also like the case that comes with the unit. However, one of the reasons I bought this unit, and paid a premium price, was for the timer function and that feature is almost useless. It was certainly not designed by a person who does much public speaking.

Great for classroom lectures, and I keep finding other uses

Luke, Amazon
11 October 2007
  • Summary: This presentation remote works wonderfully for me in classroom lectures. My major frustration is that the key bindings are entirely specific to PowerPoint (PageUp, PageDn, period, f5, escape). Although this initially made the product less than optimally useful for me--I present PDF files using acrobat--I wrote up a script using the wonderful AutoHotKey for Windows that turns translates the remote's key presses into ones that work for me.

Nice design and great usability

Bernard Farrell, Amazon
22 May 2007
  • Summary: The Logitech cordless presenter is about the fifth presenter that I've used or owned over the years. Logitech has done a great job all round with this one. It's small enough to be almost invisible, and not an issue if you need to hold it for a few hours. They've provided a very useful set of controls so one button press allows you to: black the screen (typing B in PowerPoint) or set it back on; move forwards and backwards through your presentation; and start or stop the...

Excllent Choice

William J. Hill Jr., Amazon
5 April 2007
  • Summary: This product works as advertised. The cpu is under a cabinet and the platform is at least 30ft away and it still functions well. A good buy also at the Amazon price.

Ease of use and simple

fire1 "fire1", Amazon
24 March 2007
  • Summary: The device was in the bulkiest packaging imaginable. Once opened, the physical volume of the device was quite small. The directions were economic in words but the multi-language translations caused the data sheet to be way too large for the simplicity of the operation. Batteries were stuffed into bottom of the case, causing me to use off-the-shelf batteries before finding them. All minor annoyances. The device functioned immediately and requires little practice.

My Presentation Secret

Bob G. - author, investor, entrepreneur "Bob G.", Amazon
12 March 2007
  • Summary: I give powerpoint presentations for a living and have tried just about every "clicker" out there. This is by far the best. The features are excellent, the radio signal works without line-of-sight, and it fits in your hand so the audience barely knows you've got it. I have bought several of these for my staff, and I take it wherever I go so that I don't have to rely on anyone else's sub-par version. Using this tool gives me the confidence that I can control the room.

Works with Mac OS 10.4.10 & Keynote

Frankie "Frankie", Amazon
2 February 2007
  • Summary: I've been using the Logitech Cordless Presenter for over a year now with my Mac G4 laptop and OS 10.4.10. It DOES work just fine with Keynote. You can even easily program the F5 button within the Mac's System Preferences, so in Keynote hitting F5 on your remote will launch your slide program....how-to tip is written up here: [...
