I m a Baptist minister who uses PowerPoint to preach my sermons. I purchased this remote to replace my Keyspan Presentation Remote. While I initially liked the Keyspan remote, I noticed that it behaved erratically from time to time. That is, at times during my PowerPoint sermons, the Keyspan would not advance the slides when its buttons were activated. As a result, I began to look for a replacement and ultimately settled for the Pilot Pro.
The Pilot Pro is clearly a superior product than the Keyspan remote. During the last few months that I have used it in church (2-3 times per week), it has never failed me once. The buttons not only respond as they were designed to do, but the 40-50 foot range that I get at church is equally exceptional.
The only thing that I miss from the Keyspan remote is the speed which the mouse cursor moved on the screen. The Pilot Pro s mouse cursor, on the other hand, seems to move rather sluggish and with less agility. For this reason, I can t give it a perfect 5 out of 5 score.
It also would be nifty if the Pilot Pro had dedicated volume buttons on the remote. In this manner, I could easily control the volume on the video clips that I frequently use in my PowerPoint sermons. As it stands, I have to use a separate remote just to control the volume of my video clips. In fact, the ideal remote would be one that could control PowerPoint, control the mouse cursor, and had dedicated volume buttons.
In short, I m glad that I purchased the Pilot Pro and would recommend it to those who need a dependable remote for PowerPoint presentations.
