Logitech R400 Pointer Review

The R400 Wireless Presenter from Logitech is located in the range of 30 euros and lacks many features compared to other more expensive R800. Contrary to R800, it has a lower range (15m vs. 30m) and has no status indicator. Otherwise, the essential functions are the same.

The plastic device weighs 55 g, including two triple-A batteries but no USB sticks. It’s fun to hold. The receiver can be stored in the pointer and thus stored precisely for transportation in the included bag. All buttons are easy to reach with your thumb, except the on / off button, and therefore allow smooth operation. You have to be a little careful when pushing the presenter into the right case because the button can sometimes slide into the back position accidentally and thus remain activated. The battery charging status is displayed roughly on the top side.

The Logitech R400 presenter does what you expect. Presentations, screen films, and slideshows can be controlled remotely, and details can be underlined with a laser pointer. Comfortable to hold, functional reach, control functions can be accessed without having to grab a finger that operates, and the quality of its making makes a good impression.

It’s just that the on/off button runs poorly and smoothly is a weakness concerning the case. But can quickly become an excuse for unneeded batteries. If you consider this, you get a reliable presenter that opens up the possibility of designing an exciting and dynamic presentation in terms of hardware.
