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.

    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.

    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.

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

    If you are looking for simple plug and play and back/forward functions, it does the job.. But for $50 - c'mon you can get a much better one from Best Buy !!

    Stay away

I have used it for Keynote presentations containing movies and complex builds on three different MacBooks and it has always connected immediately, maintained the connection, and played everything flawlessly. I assume that those reporting problems have some software on their computers that is conflicting. The compartment for storage of the dongle is very convenient.
