      The Targus Laser Presentation Remote works exactly as it's supposed to. It feels very good in the hand and the grip texture on the bottom of the device helps it stay put even with a sweaty hand. The laser pointer lets you get a considerable distance away and still shows up clear. I have read reviews that complained about the difficulty of opening the battery compartment, but I found that it pops right open with a press of the bottom (the tip of a fingernail is helpful). I like the key lock button, and the blank screen button. The LED light ring is a neat feature for lowlight conditions as well as a great reminder when the key lock is on. The controls are intuitive and easy to learn to use without looking at the device. The best features are both the size of the USB receiver and the manner in which it can be stored inside the battery compartment. The receiver is less than half the size of many others I have used. It's small enough that if you forget to remove it from your laptop, it probably won't get damaged. I would however, prefer a matte finish instead of the glossy top. Excellent product!

      Overall I am happy with my purchase. I love the sleek appearance and the size of this presenter. It is also lightweight and I LOVE the fact that the buttons are backlit. I use it for powerpoint presentations both while teaching and for interviews.

      I was disappointed to find that the button that releases the door to where the battery and USB receiver are housed is difficult to press. Maybe it is best to keep the USB out to avoid stress in presentation situations.

      My main complaint is from my recent interview. I was not far from the receiver but the cpu was housed in a wooden podium with only open access from the back and I was standing beside it, and it wasn't getting the signal as soon as I took a couple steps forward. As long as I was directly beside it, it was fine. This was very stressful for an interview since I should have been walking around while presenting. I didn't realize how easily the signal could be blocked, but the specs page describes this product as "giving you extreme versatility in your mobility throughout large conference rooms or classrooms," which simply was not the case for me, unfortunately. I have no way of comparing this particular issue to other remotes, however. I would recommend it, but only with that warning. Without a wooden cabinet wall in its path, the signal is fine :)

      I have read other reviews that say the laser pointer on this model is not very bright/strong, and after using it I did notice it seemed on the weaker side, but it still works and is clearly visible.

      I would have loved if the remote came with a storage case or bag to protect against scratches and to store batteries.

            Excellent remote/pointer.I like the custom positions for Keynote and Powerpoint.The most reliable one I've used. Nothing's worse than hitting the button while presenting and the slide NOT advancing! I have to say that the feel isn't quite as good as the 16, but it definitely feels more responsive . . . somehow faster.Quite happy.

                These presenters are great in performance and simplicity. We haven't had any problems with these connecting easily to either Macs or PCs. We have about three dozen presenters among out media equipment, including about 6 different make/models, and these have been the most reliable of the bunch.

                                  This is a simple to use presentation remote that does all the basics very well. I've tried some others and have returned to this design. It does not have the range or laser intensity of the the more expensive units, but it works very well in a typical meeting room.

                                      This product is great for teachers who use Smartboards, Powerpoints, and other presentation sources. It has a pointer to direct attention where it needs to be and can advance slides from across the room.
                                      The only negatives are that it took a but of muscle to wrestle off the door to the battery compartment. I am also still trying to figure out how to blackout the screen. It's not so out of the box ready. I need to read the instructions.

                                        The booklet is picture driven, and each step is drawn to perfection. I was able to follow the set up, and it worked first time, and continues to work. Amazingly simple!!!!

                                                This very ergonomic presenter has all the features one could need during an event. Even a laser pointer, which these days, with LCD panels can be pretty useless.
                                                I like the 'button lock' button on the side, which prevents me from pushing the buttons accidentally when I'm fumbling with the device in my hand.
                                                The only thing I could say is 'negative' is the way the battery compartment opens. I think it could be designed a little better. But since you're not going to be using that particular feature so often, I had no reason to reduce the rating.

                                                  I purchased this for work, and it's the perfect handheld size for classroom presentations, as well as small enough to take around to different places. It's got a great grip and I enjoy the fact that the dongle is inside the presenter. One drawback is the laser pointer feature, which requires just a bit of fenagling, but once you get it down this thing works great.

                                                    We use this remote to control powerpoint slide presentations at our church. The feature which turns the display on and off is especially convenient as this allows the presentation to be set up and left idle until it is time to project it. Controls work very well and I would recommend it.

                                                            We use this for our leaders to give presentations at large meetings. Most of our leaders aren't very tech savvy and need something they can pick up and use and not have to ask questions about. It's simple to use but could have better definitions/icons on the buttons so you know what everything is for. I like that the USB clip is packed inside the remote so you don't loose it, but the back of the remote is hard to get on and off.

                                                                I use the remote for powerpoint presentations in university courses. It may work, but is far from reliable, the USB receiver is not detected by my computer most of the time.
