Having a laser pointer during a presentation or lecture can allow the whole process to run much smoother. While you may believe that the laser pointers of today are simple like the previous models, they have undergone multiple enhancements to become even more useful.
Featuring a compact and slim design, the product we’re reviewing today is the Newmen Presenter. It’s a reasonably priced laser pointer that features some basic controls to help you with your next lecture.
Other laser pointers on the market require you to have your hands on the device consistently. However, the Newmen Presenter has a conveniently placed belt clip, which allows you to go hands-free while still being able to use the device.
Apart from that, this device also comes equipped with basic controls, which will enable you to switch between slides, blackout the screen, and change them between pages.
Who Is This Product For?
The enhanced range of this laser pointer makes it excellent for use in larger rooms. Anyone who expects to give a lecture, presentation, or speech will find this laser pointer useful. This is especially true if they are using it for a demonstration. You can simply clip the remote onto your belt and use both of your hands to demonstrate.
The package includes the Newmen Presenter with an instruction manual to help you learn how to use the device. It also comes with one wireless receiver, which can connect to most devices. Use this to connect to your laptop and enjoy a constant, uninterrupted experience.
Overview of the Features
Here is an overview of the features of the Newmen Presenter:
When it comes to enhanced range, the Newmen excels. It features a reliable and powerful frequency of 2.4 GHz. This allows the presenter to be used up to 30 meters or around 100 feet away from the screen. This also gives you complete control while walking around the room and answering questions from the audience.
The device only has a few controls, which has been designed to be easy to use. On the top of the device is a LED indicator, which lets you know how much battery is left on the device. The next button is a hyperlink, which connects you to your designated page.
The other two buttons feature scrolling and allow you to either switch between fullscreen and blackout mode. Lastly, there is a laser light button, which is used to turn the red beam on and off. On the side of the unit, there is an on and off button for the entire device, which you use to power down the device when it’s not in use.
The whole presenter is around the size of a pen, and the dimensions are 5.5 by 0.8 by 0.7 inches. This makes it easy to carry around wherever you may go. The design is also very slick and modern, which features a durable exterior and easy-to-press buttons.
This device is powered by a single AAA battery and features an auto-standby and sleep mode to help ensure that you won’t be wasting any energy. For more energy-saving option, there’s a switch that can help you manage the device’s power consumption.

How to Use This Product
Using the Newmen Presenter is very simple, especially if you have a difficult time setting up another device in the past. It features wireless connectivity and works via a USB receiver. This allows your computer to connect to the presenter without installing any programs.
After it’s connected, you’ll have a full range of controls over your computer. You can use the device to change the pages, highlight, and scroll through your presentations. Once you’re done using the Newmen Presenter, all you need to do is turn the power button to off mode.
While the Newmen Presenter is an excellent model, you may find the need to use a mouse as well. An alternative model is the Knorvay N99 Presenter and air mouse bundle. It features a multi-functional clicker, which features the functions of a laser pointer, a mouse, and a marker. However, this device may be a bit confusing to use if you’re not used to technology.
This device has also been designed to include the ability to use electronic ink, which allows you to draw on the screen and erase it if you make any errors. It also features both volume and cursor control, which makes it easier to navigate through multiple programs or websites. Regarding support, it can use all the same programs and operating systems as the Newmen Presenter.
Moreover, this device is powered by a built-in rechargeable 300mAh lithium battery and features a full recharge time of only two hours. The two hours of charging will provide you with up to 30 days of use, which ensures that you’ll have enough time for all of your presentations without worrying about the device powering off.
No matter which presenter you choose to buy, they both work well and provide you with more controls than if you were using a traditional laser pointer. You can now make your audience more engaged in what you’re talking about and move around the room while listening and answering questions. Hopefully, this review has helped you decide if the Newmen Presenter is a good fit for you.
