We do a lot of presentations in my company so we go through a lot of clickers. We ordered one and I agree with the comment that it breaks into 3 pieces too easily. It's annoying and not obvious to access the USB key inside in between the batteries. Logitech worked better for us.

Used this remote for approx. 30 presentations in one year and the USB broke into 3 pieces. Considering I bought a separate padded camera case to carry it in and it is stored within the presenter this shouldn't have happened. Also, the battery cover storage tabs are weak and are of a poor design. You can, and I did misalign them when closing the battery case and they bent to the point I couldn't get the cover on. Overall poor quality.

The tool fits very nicely in my hand. The software loads easily. Quick response. Switching from presentation to 'mouse mode' requires some concentration, but all in all, I feel very confident using it during my presentations. Saw another presentation last week using the same remote, and he does more presentations than I do, so I beleive I made the right purchase.

Works great. May order a couple more. Works great as a PowerPoint remote and as a mouse pointer! Definitely recommend!

Absolutely the BEST! March 19 2010
By Oilfield Hand - Published on Amazon.com

I do some 20-30 one week presentations a year. I show in the screen Powerpoints, PDFs, and CAD drawings. After trying a few remote presentation pointers (even big names as MS or Logitech), none had the full functionality I needed, and some missing feature would make me go near the laptop and do the thing I needed with the good old mouse, thus losing momentum in the presentation (if you do these things, you know what I mean).

A while ago I bought the Targus AMP02US, and leaving aside its 1960 look, the not so great buttons, and that the presentation button would send only the F5 command to Powerpoint (thus starting the presentation always at slide 1), it had all I needed: Mouse control, laser, next and previous slide and more. It was also difficult to do drag and drop keeping the left click down and use the mouse stick to move the cursor at the same time, plus the laser button couldn't be smaller. But all in all it was better than any previous pointer I had used.

Then I upgraded to the AMP09US. It felt like a dream come true. All these problems where solved and a few bonuses were added:
- The look is slick and elegant.
- The receiver goes stored in the same body of the pointer, no need for a bag, no loose parts.
- There is room for a spare battery in the pointer, so you can change it at once if you run out of juice in a middle of a presentation.
- The presentation button sends now the right command to Powerpoint: Shift+F5, thus starting the presentation at the slide you've got in the screen.
- The laser button is a big handy one, and is the same that moves the mouse cursor.
- When in mouse mode, if you press the mouse stick (or laser button) it works as left click, thus making the drag and drop work like a dream.
- The lightened buttons are white for next/prev slide, and green around the laser/mouse button.
- In pointer mode (the central stick is the laser, the side buttons are next/prev slide) you can lock the non-essential buttons (then a discrete red light goes on), avoiding accidental commands.
- In mouse mode (the central button is moves the cursor, and if pressed does left click, the side buttons are mouse left/right) the light is always green.
- The color change is nice, because you look at the pointer and can see if you are in mouse/pointer -locked- mode, then hit the right command without much thinking.
- Plus all the little features like screen darkening, presentation on/off, and multimedia volume.
- In mouse mode the presentation on/off and screen darkening buttons will open MyPC folder, and hit the Windows Start Button. So you can access or run anything in the PC.
- And for those who still stick to their Macs, it has a Mac mode too.

If you are slightly dissatisfied with your current pointer, feeling that you still get the job done but something is missing, that the pointer could be a bit more comfortable, this one is the way to go. I couldn't be happier with this product. That's THE pointer. By the way, I've bought it at the airport for $80, because the nice look and specs looked promising; it really delivers all it says.

If you run presentations professionally, go for it, it is a worthy investment.

Just what I was looking for! June 25 2010
By Gifts_4_ur_loved_ones - Published on Amazon.com

I am a college instructor and use powerpoint in every class. I like to use video or other web pages to enhance my presentations, but hate having to go to the computer to click on the links in my presentation. I wanted a presenter that was plug-n-play (because the universities I teach at the don't have presenters do not allow you to load new software), had a laser pointer, and had a mouse so I could click on links in the slides away from the computer. This presenter does ALL that and so I am very excited to have found it!

The packaging was terrible, but note that the manual is in the package, hidden between the packaging. Also, I found that the instructions are wrong for how to turn off the remote: I had to hit BOTH the on/off button and the Lock button for 3 seconds to get it to shut off (the manual mentions only the on/off button). But fortunately, they are right next to each other so it is not a big deal.

I gave the "Ease of use" a 4, because the "lock" feature does take some getting used to and I had to look in the manual to find out about some of the functions. You can use the lock button on the side, but it cuts down on your ability to use the full functions. What I found is that there is a switch on the top that is you push it up, you can use presenter features, including the stop/start slideshow feature (right uppermost button), the "joystick" as the laster pointer, and the arrow keys to advance or reverse the slides. If you click the switch down, you can use the mouse control features, although here, the laser isn't available (but you still could go through a slideshow). The nice thing is that when this switch is down, you can click on links within your slideshow - once the cursor hovers over a link, it turns into a hand. Once you get used to the buttons/switches I think it would be easy to switch between the two functions. I am very happy to have found my "dream" presenter!!

Let me start by saying that I use powerpoint A LOT. I've had experience with several different presentation remotes and for the most part had no trouble with them, but most I've used are simple and featureless. This Targus product is both easy to use and full of useful features for novice to experienced presenters. The IR USB receiver fits neatly into the battery compartment where there are, low and behold, two batteries. The device takes one AAA to run, so the other is a spare for when the primary drains during a presentation! The buttons are laid out nicely so that I am not mistakenly pressing the wrong ones, and there is a lock button as added protection. Beside the lock button is an on/off button, which you must depress for about 3 seconds before the device shuts off. It has a blackout button, start/end slideshow button, and a switch to alternate between presentation mode and computer mode (for using the mouse, volume control, etc). Of course it does not have all the fancy things such as a clock, vibrations (yadda yadda) that the $100+ remotes have, but I don't need that anyway. My only problem with the device seems to be the construction. I gave it 4 stars because although the buttons are structured to my liking, the quality of the build seems to be substandard. The spring on the negative end of the battery is bent, so the battery does not quite fit unless it is forced, which could be a problem down the road. Also, I'm not sure how it would stand up to dropping. I do not make a habit of dropping things (I can count on one hand the number of times I've dropped my cellphone in the past 3 years) so I have no experiences to share thus far. Overall it is a great product that I would recommend to anyone who needs a presentation remote.

Awesome! Oct. 8 2011
By Michael Wilson - Published on Amazon.com

As a teacher, I use this everyday. It is easy to use, the laser is bright enough to see even from the back of the room. The volume control is a nice touch. The range is more then enough to work my presentations from anywhere within my classroom. I love the mouse feature. I can drive any computer application from anywhere which saves me a lot of running around when I want to show a student something without having to go all the way back to the front of the room. The unit stores an extra battery on board which is great if you run out of juice in the middle of a presentation. The unit runs off of 1 battery and after over a month of continual all-day use, I still haven't had to change it out. If you need this or any item fast, don't order from Amazon. It can take them two weeks or more to even put it in a box to ship it to you! I paid extra once for 2 day shipping and it took them a week to even put it in a box. Once they finally mailed it out, I got it in two days.... a week too late >:(

Great Presentation Remote Feb. 16 2014
By D. Adams - Published on Amazon.com

This remote works for both Windows and Apple OSX. There's a switch inside the battery cover that allows you select what operating system and program you'll be using the remote with. This remote also allows you to use it as a mouse with full drag-n-drop functionality. I did my research on what remote I wanted and was able to get it here instead of the large-chain office store for half the price.
