Do any wireless presenters really have a good range? [closed]

I've had a couple of wireless presenters (the little devices with a USB receiver which allow you to move PowerPoint presentations etc along remotely) and I've found that they're great when they're close to the laptop, but rubbish at any significant range.

"As a trainer I have this problem with certain classrooms as well. I must admit the Apple IR Remote works brilliantly for me, but the few times that I don't have my Mac for presentations I have had huge success with the Logitech Professional Presenter R800 with the Wireless USB dongle. I have effectively used it at around 20 meters from the actual PC.

Unfortunately I don't own one. They are fairly pricey, and the one I had used belong to my previous company, who bought these for every trainer. It also has a built in timer with vibrate feature which is handy to track your time and also determine when your out of range without interrupting your flow.

Oh, and it's also a laser pointer.

There is also the R400 but this only has a 15m range."
