I use the wireless eggspert and it has been VERY FRUSTRATING, it doesn't seem to get the signal from the eggs or the remote. Students had to press the eggs many times before it lights up, if even does it at all. Does things when you have not touch the eggs or the remote.It is very expensive product that doesn't do his job at all.I want to smash it against the wall sometimes.

Eggspert broken after a couple months

Comments about Wireless Eggspert® 2.4gHz:
This was purchased for my classroom via donorschoose. The system was great while it lasted. It stopped responding after only 2 short months. For $100 this SHOULD NOT HAPPEN! I am hoping Educational Insights will send us a replacement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We will gladly send out a replacement. Could you please email us at CS@educationalinsights.com or call 800-995-4436? . Thank you.

Great idea, execution not so good

About Me Educator, Parent
I conduct enrollment and education meetings for retirement plan participants. I look for innovative ways to get information out to these people, and wanted to try a quiz show format. Because my meetings may have upwards of 60 people at a time, I needed a way to keep it from becoming chaotic. My daughter suggested the Eggspert, which she had used in school. It was the ideal solution, but it doesn't work very well. I found that some buttons were indeed slower than others and some you needed to push multiple times to make them transmit a signal. My biggest issue though was that two of the buttons stopped working the very first time I used this! This product is expensive and this is just unacceptable. I've called twice now to get the buttons replaced. Both time I had to leave a message. I hope this second time someone returns my call.

The product gets the students motivated and excited to learn, but the buzzers are unreliable. The buttons have to be pressed many times to respond which the students find annoying. I have purchased three sets and all three pink buttons are broken, which means that the students can't buzz in. Very disappointing for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The first time I used this, I loved it - finally a way to know who buzzed in first when I play Jeopardy with my class! However, I no longer love the Eggspert. There is a significant lag time between when students buzz in and when their color lights up. Some colors work better than others. After only 4 or 5 games with the kids, the blue egg stopped working entirely. I've tried new batteries in it, and have turned the whole system on and off - it doesn't work at all. So I'm down to 5 eggs, and even those aren't always reliable. The students sometimes have to push several times for the egg to register, meaning that other teams can get in front of them.

The first time I used this, 2 of the 6 buzzers did not work. After four sessions of using the wireless Eggspert, I question the validity of the response lights. It has not been consistent. Two of the colors light up more quickly that the other two working colors. Not sure if I trust the outcome. I feel the "wired" version is more accurate.
Merchant response: Mrs. Miller it sounds like your Wireless Eggspert may be a bit scrambled! Please look for an email from us with an offer to help...
have aversion of wireless Eggspert
from Houston, Texas
Not all the wireless eggs worked as students had to press the buttons over and over again to get the unit to respond. Other teacher's wired eggspert was better. Unit has sat in my closet this year
Merchant response: No, no! It sounds like your unit is fried. Please take it out of the closet and let us fix or replace it for you! Look for an email from us to get your unit unscrambled - your students will thank you for it.
LOVE MY EGGSPERT
from Nottingham, PA
I used the original Eggspert and the wireless is even better. I have had ZERO problems with our unit and the remote makes it much easier to change setting on the fly.
Merchant response: Hooray for Eggspert! Thanks, Fran!

This didn't work at all. Lights stayed on and did not respond to remote control. This was a very expensive purchase for my classroom and I am very disappointed. Two other teachers in our school have one and we will be sending them all back for a refund.
Merchant response: Sharon, this is terrible news! Please look for an email from us to get your Eggspert up and running.

Merchant response: THANK YOU, LV, for letting us know that the replacement is working and so glad the students are loving it!
