mediocre if you don't have compatibility issues, if you do then it's terrible....

Pros: Good size and reasonable ergonomics. Light weight. Basically, when there's no compatibility issues (see cons), it works great.
Cons: The laser works fine if you're using it to point to things on a non-illuminated surface like a chalkboard (but less so on a dry erase board). However, when trying to point things out in a PowerPoint presentation that appears via a projector or a large backlit screen, it's not very good at all. It...
Summary: It came with actual Duracell batteries instead of some random brand.
Pros: If you're using powerpoint, this this works just like it says. Forward, backward, start/stop show, blank screen buttons. The laser is plenty bright, and the transmitter stores nicely. It even has a slick neoprene case.
Cons: It comes in one of those indestructible clamshell cases that are impossible to open without gouging yourself. Wear some leather gloves and use a sharp knife. Also, the timer only increments by 5 minutes at a time, which is weird.
Pros: The timer is nice, which is of course why to buy this model. Battery indicator also helpful. Flawless integration with all programs tested.
Cons: Very disappointed in the laser. The spot is very small and not bright. In a medium sized room (50-100 people) with enough light to allow people to take notes, the spot is almost invisible. I think every other combo device I've used, which is about 10, had a better laser. Even the credit card size...
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.
Summary: Pretty much the standard in presentation mice. Clicker, pointer, timer functions all work perfectly
Pros: I actually got this after using another person's and it's been the best presentation clicker I've ever used. If you have to give a presentation in front of folks and move around a lot like I do, you can't go wrong with this presenter. I haven't encountered a laptop that it doesn't work with and t...
Summary: The timer is not readable in dim light. (a backlight may have solved this issue but that would have reduced battery life.) As a whole I don't use the timer that much- so its not an issue for me.
Pros: Its fantastic for what it does. The controls are great and responsive. Very sleek. Very good value for money.
Cons: Ability to set custom timer/vibrate points would have been useful. Currently it only alerts you at almost the end and then at the end of the countdown. The ability to define when you want to be alerted (half way would be a good point). But it does its job well and I don't mind this quirk.
Summary: As always, Newegg service and delivery was excellent. Happy to see it work "out of the box" on the Asus Eee.
Pros: I just received the Logitech 2.4 GHz Presenter. Works great with PowerPoint on an HP (Compaq) nc6220 laptop. Also works with OpenOffice 2.4 on the same laptop (OS is MS Win XP). Also works with an Asus Eee running Asus' Linux (Xandros) with OpenOffice 2.0 (came installed on Eee). Slide advance/go...
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.
Pros: I just got this a few days ago, and went to campus today to try it out under simulated working conditions. It worked all over the classroom, with a tablet PC that's sitting behind some low walls on a console in the front of the room. No problems whatsoever with line of sight. (I say that because ...
Cons: I wish the unit had a button to restart a PowerPoint from where it left off, if you happen to stop the slide show. To do that you have to return to the computer itself and mouse-click the on-screen control. In other words, if you hit the "F5/esc" button on the clicker, whether on purpose or by mi...
