SMK-Link RemotePoint Jade Green Laser Pointer and Presentation Remote (VP4910)
The pointer works at ranges up to 150 feet away, so this gives me the freedom to walk up and down the lecture hall, even to the back of the room if I want to. This is nice because I had to be careful with my old pointer and I don’t want to be worrying about the connection when I’m teaching. The controller use an auto RF function, so it will automatically find an unused channel, so you don’t have to worry about it interfering with the science presentation in the room next door…
This Jade remote is way better than my old remote. The green laser is really bright and it shows up nicely, even in a brightly lit room. The pointer has four buttons that can be programmed to send different key combinations to the computer. It is a nice size, it is larger than most presentation remote controls and this makes it easy to operate and it’s comfortable to hold. The 360 degree mouse is a nice feature, it works very well.
I’d advice you to buy a case to hold your remote and the USB link together, to add some protection the connector and so that you won’t lose the connecter. Other than that, this is a great product and way better than the competition.

“We use this presenter remote for Sunday morning worship service. It facilitates the use of EasyWorship. Things I like about Jade are that it has a good weight to it and it feels great to hold. It is very easy to use and has easy to reach buttons. The software for programming the buttons is very straightforward and simple. The buttons are responsive – you know when you click as there is a subtle but distinct feel.”

Here is what current buyers think of the SMK-Link RemotePoint Jade Green Laser Pointer and Presentation Remote (VP4910):
This is a fantastic laser pointer at a great price. It does everything I would want it to do for teaching and presenting research seminars. Yes, it is a little bulky – but I can live with it. The green laser is excellent for students and audience that are color blind and cannot easily see the red laser.
Two thumbs way up! Two changes requested from the maker: provide a pouch for carrying it and perhaps give more than 4 buttons; I have already programmed all 4 buttons. Read Original Review
A great remote. I especially like the four programmable buttons. I use two different presentation programs that use two different keystrokes to advance slides. Now I can use the same remote to run both programs. The remote is a little big, but I like that it runs on AA batteries instead of the other smaller ones that I can never seem to find when I need them. The 360 mouse did take a little getting used to before I got the right amount of touch down, but I learned that within a few minutes.
If you’re looking for something small this isn’t for you. But if you want something with a little more power than just the standard next and previous this is great product. Read Original Review
