    Audio Mute problem semi-workaround

    This is great product marred by a software bug that should not be difficult to fix - if anyone at Targus actually tried. When I connect this remote to my MacBook Air (Lion OSX) it mutes the sound on both the computer AND any external speakers or A/V system connected to the computer. This makes the product essentially unusable, and should be fixed (probably a few lines in the driver or something) and it is the sole reason I only gave 1-star to a features set that's otherwise excellent. SEMI WORKAROUND (will only work if your computer is connected to an external speaker or amplifier) Connect FIRST external audio THEN plug in the USB dongle and it won't mute audio. Not ideal, but at least you can use the remote in the situations you need it most (big room with computer away from podium or stage) Targus, please fix this bug !!!

    I bought this item specifically because it was compatible with MAC, although I never actually used it with a MAC. Using PPT on a pc, this presenter worked great. I loved the black screen feature, the ability to go from edit to presentation mode, the laser and the normal ability to advance slides. However, I travel and when i do, I put my computer gear (power cord, mouse and presenter) into a case to keep them together and to protect them. Near the circular button, where there is not much space between the button and the edge it cracked very quickly; maybe the third time I used it. In fact, it cracked on both sides. I wasn't very happy with the flimsiness of the gadget given the price point. I was still able to use it effectively, until I dropped it at which point the two cracks totally broke off; the on/off switch also broke off at that point as well. I really liked the other, smaller model, which looks and feels much better, but that one is not compatible with MAC, soooo .... It would have been a much better gadget had it been made more sturdily. If you pack it well, it will probably last, but if you mix it with other "stuff" the slightest pressure is likely to crack the case.

    This is my second Targus remote in a year. Unfortunately it's the only one I can find that is compatible with my Mac. I do presentations every day, which means I have to constantly remove the back cover in order to remove the USB tab. When I replace the cover, it does not completely click in place and it gets worse every time I use it. I just bought the replacement a month ago and was hopeful that this issue was resolved. It was not. Already It's not clicking into place and I'm having to hold the remote together as I work with it. NOT IDEAL!! No sense returning it because they are all apparently the same. It's a design issue and it needs to be fixed. If I could find another brand, I would gladly switch and even pay more. In addition, it would be nice to have a volume control on the device.

    This product is not compatible with macintosh. I have used this product for many months and very much enjoyed it. It really is a nice package. However, it does something very odd as a USB driver so when Mountain Lion was released (the lastest Mac OS) it's broken. This is too bad as I very much like the original device when it worked. Right now all buyers with new macintoshes need to know that it does not work at all on Macs. If they were to offer an updated driver, that could help but I've contacted Targus support and they claim to have no understanding or knowledge of the issue. THis is very frustrating as how can you not know your product doesn't work. This is clearly indicating that I can't trust Targus products in the future.

    DOES NOT WORK WITH MAC QUICKTIME MOVIE PRESENTATN

    I bought this device as an RF controller on the premise that I could use it at a distance from my laptop, like walking around on stage during my presentation. I format my presentations in final cut PRO and the finished presentation is a QUICKTIME (NATIVE TO MAC) movie with still images linked by mini-movie transitions. The TARGUS remote does not stop or start the presentation on command with the setting on '...keynote..' or power point. The product is useless for me. I will discard it, write it off as a business expense and stand within arm's reach of my laptop during my presentations to manage my presentations. Thanks for a completely worthless piece of equipment. This is the fourth remote I have tried and discarded.
