Showing 1-10 of 70
2 Years of Use and Still Working

Summary: I bought this item two years ago; and I still use it 16 - 32 hours per month. This item has traveled the world, been dropped, tossed, abused, and it still works just fine. The battery life is incredible. I've changed batteries two times in two years. The only complaint I have is that if you use it enough, you will accidentally hit the volume up and down buttons which will then make your computer change volume and beep.
Summary: This remote control is an essential tool for any presenter. It allows you to control the flow of slides without having to walk back to your computer to look for the arrow keys. The box doesn't say so, but it works for PowerPoint installed on a Mac.
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.
Summary: Well, this is radio controled presenter so that any obstructions will not stop the signal. It has a black screen button, "F5" button and all other standard buttons. Timer will help you manage time.
Pros: Black screen button, Durable, Easy to Use, Fast, Great range, Reliable, Versatile
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.
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.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE THIS THING!!! I use it in a classroom and it works flawlessly from every angle... even from in my pocket across the hall! I love the case and that the antenna stores seamlessly in the back. Amazing product! The timer feature is a bit gimmicky to me and I could live without it. The 5-minute-only increments make using it kind of pointless and I tend not to feel the vibration when Im heavily into running my mouth, but that's just me.
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

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.
