Nice Little Device for Class
on July 21, 2011
I was required to purchase this "clicker" for a lecture class I was taking with 178 other students. I purchased the product used and after doing so, had to also purchase a subscription through the company that either makes this device or the software to use with it. The subscription was more than the actual device cost me. I used it for a 5 week summer course on the batteries that came with the device from the previous owner. I can assume the batteries were new or close to it. Over a 20 day period I had the clicker on for 2 hours straight and it never shut off or got a low battery warning.
It is a little tricky to use if you ignore/lose the instructions that go along with it. That is my only complaint, but it took me only 10 minutes to understand all the functions just figuring it out through trial and error.
I felt like a game show contestant in class or a voter on America's Funniest Home Videos, but this model is of course wireless unlike the game show models.
Weight wasn't too bad. It weighs as much as an iPhone or a regular universal remote for a television. If I don't need it for another class I will pay it forward and sell mine used. Other than using it for a class requirement for quizzing and bonus point trivia questions, I don't have much of a use for it.
