Check with your school / school's book store before purchasing
Item shipped was as advertised - the XR clicker however it was a different color than the product image. No big deal - just something to be aware of. The item powered up and functioned properly and aside from an issue with the shipping (which the seller - Book Czars - emailed me about and was happy to refund the difference because of a USPS error - the post office sent the package to the wrong sorting facility so my item arrived a day late)... I am happy with the service and the item. Also: my item was lightly used and did not come with directions however, turning technologies' website has its manuals and instructions (in .pdf and .pptx) on its support page.
The clickers are easy to use (now that I have the right one) and my school has embraced the technology which means one clicker for the rest of my classes. The clicker auto-detects the professor's channel (or you can manually detect and join channels). Thus far I have only used the clicker during lectures and have been impressed with how turning technologies' response platform integrates into powerpoint.
BEFORE YOU BUY - this seems like common sense but in my haste to purchase this clicker and get it by my first Intermediate Accounting class I did not stop to CHECK THE TYPE OF TURNING TECHNOLOGIES CLICKER my school uses. I go to Virginia Commonwealth Univ and our school of business recently adopted turning technologies NXT response platform. The XR clicker is not compatible with the NXT platform so just be sure to check that you are purchasing the correct model clicker.I am usually pretty good about checking the details before buying goods but I thought turningtechnologies made one product and that was it. Not so. These are not CPS clickers (backward compatible).
I hope this has helped - most likely you are buying this item because you are required to. Hopefully your school has a standardized response platform so you don't have to buy CPS clickers for your GenEd classes, then switch to XR or NXT clickers once you get into your degree program. Please vote up reviews that you find helpful - you may help others make a purchasing decision.

Good value, works great.
Bought a used one - worked out of the box. A great cost saver, works great for my college kid - for $5 plus shipping this was a great value considering that the college may make these obsolete next semester.

Overall A Smart Buy
The clicker was in good condition, but otherwise quite outdated in comparison to others if that sort of thing is important to you. Personally, I needed a cheap option that would fit the requirement for my course, and this did the trick.

Vendor sent a defective device. Dead pixels and the screen text is shifted down making it unreadable. Some of the buttons do not work and it cannot tap into the frequency for the class. Vendor promised to replace the device but has not honored his promise. Do not buy from this vendor.

I had to use this clicker for my lecture class in college, and it worked very well! There was never any sort of glitching, and my batteries lasted the entire year. The only thing is that when I first received the clicker, it would not work because the batteries inside exploded.

Superb Quality Product!
I really needed the Response Card for college. And I was looking for a clean, almost new response card, but wanted to pay an affordable price. This was [perfect and just what I was looking for. It looked like new, and still had the protective covering on the screen. Also shipped quickly. Very satisfied.

had to buy this clicker for a class and was hesitant to buy one because usually they run upwards of 50 dollars. I spent under 10 bucks shipping included and its brand new!!

The clicker doesn't look like the device
It works really well but I had to buy batteries and change them. The clicker doesn't look like the device, it is a lot dirtier in real life.
