Beboncool Classic Wireless Presenter
Starting with the market’s best-seller, this Beboncool Wireless Presenter has been bought thousands of times now. For a product that’s about $11-$20, it’s certainly packed with features you will find useful.
Its wireless connection reaches up to 39 feet — that’s a lot of space to move around the room and interact with your audience.
This presenter is compatible with office suites especially Microsoft 365 and iWork applications — on both Windows and Mac devices. All you have to do to use this is to just plug it into the USB port.
Aside from the page up and page down buttons, you’ll also find different buttons here such as black screen display, light pointer, next, previous, and full screen.
Canon PR10-G Wireless Presentation Remote
If you need a presenter with an awesome laser pointer, check out the Canon PR10-G Wireless Presentation Remote. It’s quite pricey at around $85-$90 price range but it certainly has the best laser on the market.
Its laser is a brilliant green that’s 8x more visible compared with the standard red laser that you get with most presentation remote. It’s even visible on LCD displays in bright rooms.
In terms of connectivity, you’ll find this presenter superb. You can use this up to 100 feet without any problems.
It also has timer and vibration features that will allow you to focus on your presentation (and not on the clock). There’s an easy-to-read backlit LCD screen that displays the time, battery level, and the signal strength.
This Canon presenter works with both Windows and Mac devices. Definitely worth it!
Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote
Let’s take the notch even further with this next presenter — the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote. Amazingly, it even has more features than the Canon presenter (though it’s also a bit pricier at $89 to $130 price range).
Normally, presenters have laser pointers so you could emphasize something on the screen during the discussion. This presenter has highlight and magnification features. You can magnify an area of focus in pixel-perfect details.
However, you will have to enable it first via a Logitech presentation app. But that’s a small price to pay for such a feature.
In addition, it also has a mouse-like cursor control — like a remote mouse — that allows you to use the on-screen cursor to play and pause videos or click any link on the screen.
In terms of connectivity, you can connect this using a USB receive or through a low-energy Bluetooth connection. It works with both Windows and Mac OS with all the leading presentation software at 100 feet.
Logitech Professional Presenter R800
Logitech also has another presenter at the mid-range level — the Logitech Professional Presenter R800. It still has a range of up to 100 feet and costs only around $49-$79.
Like the Canon presenter, this one also has a brilliant green laser that’s powerful and visible even on LCD and plasma displays in brightly lit rooms.
There’s also an LCD display with a timer that will help you manage your time with silent, vibrating alerts. There’s also a reception-level indicator that will ensure you don’t go off too far.
To use this presenter, all you have to do is plug the 2.4 GHz receiver into the computer’s USB port. Although the box states this presenter is for Windows-based computers, there’s really no issue with connecting this on Mac devices.
DinoFire Wireless PowerPoint Presentation Remote
If you need a presenter that’s compatible with almost any device, look no further than the DinoFire Wireless PowerPoint Presentation Remote.
This $12-$15 device supports different operating systems and devices such as Windows, Mac, Linux, and even Android. It also works with any presentation software that supports clicker devices.
It can connect with Android phones since it has a plug-and-play Type C/USB receiver. Its wireless connectivity is up to 100 feet and its laser point range is up to 656 feet.
This DinoFire presenter has a hyperlink button, volume control, window switcher, black/full screen, and page forward/backward. All buttons are intuitive touch keys.
Amerteer Wireless Presenter
This Amerteer Wireless Presenter has a unique rubberized slip-resistant ring design that’s adjustable to fit different finger sizes. It’s priced at $17-$21 per box.
Since the design is quite different than the regular “remote” look, its control area, filled with five buttons, can be controlled simply by the thumb.
Despite this look, it still has the signature red laser pointer that can easily be seen against most backgrounds and can even highlight key areas on the screen.
Its mini USB receiver uses a plug-and-play technology. No need to install an application or driver. Its wireless connection is up to 12 meters long.
Beboncool Presentation Clicker
A cheaper alternative to the one above with the same finger ring design is this Beboncool Presentation Clicker, which costs around $15-$17.
Compared to the others, the button design on this presenter is simplistic, with only three buttons — laser light, arrow up, and arrow down. However, it still has a full screen and black screen feature by simply holding down the arrow up and down buttons.
This presenter is compatible with different operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and Android and supports all types of presentation software.
You also get a built-in rechargeable Li-polymer battery that could last for one week after a full charge. Recharging it takes 1 hour only.
Wrapping things up…
Using a presenter helps you engage more with your audience, which brings a more positive impact on your presentation. Plus, you could move around during the discussion.
But checking the market for a good one might be overwhelming since there are thousands of presenters out there, each with different features.
If you want the best one without regards to the price, definitely check out the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote. 😊
