I use this inexpensive remote because it’s very simple. It’s small so your audience will hardly notice it and it fits easily in the palm of your hand. You just plug the USB adapter into your laptop and it works. Click the right button to go to the next slide. Click the left button to go backward. Click the bottom button to black out and re-view a slide. It’s that easy.
It does have some minor disadvantages:
- The On/Off switch on the right side is very hard to see. I lent it to my husband; he and a computer-savvy colleague thought it was broken because they couldn’t find the switch!
- The top button is supposed to allow you to switch to other applications. I haven’t figured out how to control it well enough to use it.
- The buttons make a slight clicking sound; I’d prefer them to be silent
