Presentation Device: Logitech R400

As noted, I have a Logitech R800 but my experience with that device was less than satisfactory.

I’ve often been able to use one of my company’s presentation devices but ran into a scheduling issue where their Logitech R400 device was assigned to someone for a presentation when I needed to use it.

I decided to double down on Logitech and purchase my own R400.

I am very happy with the R400 I bought.  It works from > 35′ (~ 10 meters) away even working through walls.  The R800 I had wouldn’t even work from 5′ (< 2 meters).

I present at some regional and local conferences and at my company.  Any regular presenter needs a presentation “clicker”

This Spring I invested in a presentation device by Logitech: the R800.


It comes with a USB, RF dongle; ostensibly for good range of motion while presenting.  Here you see it side-by-side with the USB dongle for a Logitech M570 Trackball, my favorite pointer device.  I’ve tried it in different configurations (with no other RF devices and even no other USB devices and on other laptops but always with similar results).
