Great presentation device

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...
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...
Pros: Very good USB presenter. Reliable, useful to control your presentation far from your laptop. Has a laser pointer included and a vibrating timer that you can set up at your will. The battery is long lasting.
Summary: I never leave home without it. It even controls limited functions on the SlingBox (play, pause, volume - but not channels), which I use as a pseudo remote on my laptop when watching my home Tivo in hotel rooms.
Pros: Wow. This is my 5th remote and by far the best I've used. I am going on my 12th month of continuous use and have never had a failure, nor have I even replaced the batteries even after constant use of the laser. I previously had remotes from Microsoft, Kensington, and a couple "off-brands" and all...
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).
