FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Kensington K72353US Wireless Presenter Pro with Green Laser Pointer

Ignore the 1gb designation, this is  the memory-less unit.

This is a must have for anyone who does power point presentations.  If you are a gadget freak you are going to love this pointer.  It has a nice matte black finish that feels very comfortable in the hand and it is very light.  The receiver on their other units is also a usb flash drive in addition to being a receiver for the unit.  This unit does not have the flash drive.   I would recommend the 2gb unit as it is actually several dollars cheaper than this unit.  (K72336US)

The laser is green and astoundingly vivid.  It was bright and precise at 100 feet in normal lighting.   In a dimly lit room I am sure it would be useable even further away.  

In essence you could put a rather large presentation on the flash drive and only carry 1 piece of equipment with you besides the computer.  Kensington did this right.  It even comes with a very small zipper heavy nylon case that's padded to protect the pointer.  A suggestion to Kensington would be a slot in the case large enough to carry 2 spare AAA batteries.   It would provide a little peace of mind for Murphy’s law interventions. 

The instructions are basic pictographs. You really couldn't get any simpler.  The unit moves the Powerpoint slides forward or backward and turns the presentation on or off.  This allows you to have the ability to point at your slides and move them all with the same unit. This may seem pricey but it certainly is a good purchase and would be a great gift for the person who uses power point presentations.
