OK for simple talks
The presenter works fine if you have a simple talk. But I consistently encounter two problems when I use the presenter. First it The presenter works fine if you have a simple talk. But I consistently encounter two problems when I use the presenter. First it does not function as a 'plug and play' device on my computer (Macbook Pro, OSX 10.4.11). I always have to reboot after I plug in the presenter. The second problem is that I use short movies in my powerpoint talks, and I have them inserted in the slides so that they play after I click on them. But my mouse trackpad became inoperative when the presenter was plugged in so I had to unplug the presenter, show the movie, plug in the presenter and then reboot the computer.
I guess the computer thinks the presenter is a mouse and I have my trackpad configured to go offline when a USB mouse is plugged in. So I have to change these preferences beforehand so that I can show the videos the way I prefer. In the end the experience is not at all seamless.
In defense of the presenter it does move the slides forwards and back and has a nice range. …

Only does one thing - but SO WELL!!!
All it does is to move ahead or back in a slide show -- whether from PowerPoint, Keynote, or out of Adobe Bridge. Oh yah, it'll bl All it does is to move ahead or back in a slide show -- whether from PowerPoint, Keynote, or out of Adobe Bridge. Oh yah, it'll blank the screen, that is make it dark, if you want.
I can only praise a product that, these days, doesn't do it 'ALL'! Thank you Kensington. I can't wait to use it in my next photo lecture.
Are six or seven stars possible? It also did what it does out of the box, no prodding nor coaxing. And at least thirty feet away, through a masonry wall to boot. …

Have to Get This
I don't know why I didn't get this little gadget sooner. Being a college professor I give many presentations. I just got the Kensi I don't know why I didn't get this little gadget sooner. Being a college professor I give many presentations. I just got the Kensington Wireless Presenter and it truly is plug and play. So much so that this pretty much sums up the instructions that come with it. I took it out of the packaging, put the batteries in the remote, plugged the receiver into a USB port on my laptop (Powerbook G4 Aluminum), connected my laptop to a projector, and away I went. The remote works flawlessly. Most impressive it that performance matches claims made by Kensington and other reviewers. If you give presentations for your livelihood and feel shackled to your hardware, buy this! You will enjoy your newfound freedom. …

Only works with Keynote
If you use MS PPT for your presentations don't get any Kensington presenter. They only work with Keynote on the Mac OS.

Stay away …

Are there any wireless presenters for the iPad?
- Asked by Jeffrey M from Cross River
- May 1, 2010
As soon as I find one, I'm buying the ipad and the presenter. As hard as it is to believe, I've be As soon as I find one, I'm buying the ipad and the presenter. As hard as it is to believe, I've been told repeatedly that the only remote options are a bluetooth keyboard and/or an iPhone. Both of those are needlessly big and bulky compared to the Kensington or any others. I don't know why this is so difficult. Take a bluetooth keyboard, strip away all the keys except the few for presenting, and put those remaining keys into a small form-factor. Whatever rocket science this involves has been perfected for about ten years. …
