Either you are going to school or working, you might have to do presentations quite often. One of important factors contributing to a successful presentation is being confident and staying away from your laptop. Therefore, a wireless presenter is a must-have device when I run powerpoint slides at my workplace.
Moreover, I feel much more confident when holding something in my hand. In this post, we are going to review the Inateck WP1002 Wireless Presenter with Laser Pointer.
Features and Performance
The Inateck WP1002 features a minimalist design, it is also small and lightweight enough to stay comfortably in your hand. The device itself includes a detachable USB receiver which is used to plug to your computer. There is not setup required, you just need to plug the receiver, turn on the presenter and everything is ready, it will work on both Mac and Windows.
The Bluetooth range of the presenter is claimed to be around 20 meters, I tried walking around my room and didn’t have any problem navigating my slides. The buttons are quite silent and easy to reach without looking at the device. You can see the primary buttons including page up, page down and laser switch are placed on the front, there is also a LED indicator on top of those buttons. The power button can be found on left side and there are Tab and Enter buttons on the right side. The two buttons are used to select and open hyperlink in your slides.
The laser pointer is located on top of the presenter and I find it very useful to direct attention of audience or highlight your points. The red laser light is also bright and clear enough for them to see from a remarkable distance.
The device is powered by a AAA battery, I’ve used it for over a week and the LED indicator is still green which means I don’t need to replace the battery yet.
The Inateck WP1002 is available on Amazon for around $15. This is a basic wireless presenter with all functionalities you can find on other products, however, it is much more portable than my cheaper presenter which is the Oem Presenter. Therefore, we still recommend this product.
