4 out of 5 eggsAs advertised

Pros: Purchased this Remote for an old Windows XP with Media Center Computer. Worked like a charm and came in a nice retail box.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This will not only work with XP but will also work with newer versions of Windows with Media Center. The remotes for XP are getting limited so this is a Must for those users.

4 out of 5 eggsGood First Remote

Pros: It works and does what is advertised. The mouse function works similar to an old ATI remote I had and is familiar in the hand to other MCE remotes.

Cons: Not backlit and fairly simple.. For being a generic MCE remote the receiver has native windows drivers and auto installs, but DOES NOT work with other generic MCE remotes. That rubs me the wrong way and was the only reason for not getting 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, inexpensive remote

Pros: Works with MythTV
Decent range
Inexpensive

Cons: None serious

Other Thoughts: Can change system key mappings via xmodmap and MythTV settings to get this remote to perform most of the functions I use in MythTV.

Recently started using unit in large room with very high ceilings and now must point unit directly at receiver.to get it to work reliably. In smaller room, I think signal bounced off walls/ceilings because this was not an issue. 30 ft. range indicated is realistic, but you may need to aim carefully.to get it.

4 out of 5 eggsMuch better than using phone apps as remote

Pros: Bought this to use instead of Remote Potato app's Remote Control. RP's RC worked great, its just difficult to use as a remote, button feel plays a big part for ease of use. It's a pain locating buttons on a flat phone screen without staring at the phone, where I use Adesso mostly without ever looking at it.

This remote is laid out nicely, and the mouse center button works great for occasionally having to minimize/maximize WMC to fix some video issues.

Cons: -1 star for lack of back light, which amplifies the crappiness of having the numbers at bottom being black text on dark gray buttons.

3 out of 5 eggsOk Remote

Pros: Works great with Windows 7 Media Center

Cons: Doesn't work much at all with MediaPortal.

Other Thoughts: If you only need a remote for Windows Media Center then this remote will wok just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat remote for A great Price

Pros: Plug and play, no drivers needed and comes with a IR receiver and a USB extender; up to 30 feet. You can put your HTPC in sleep mode and wake up with the remote; without shutting down your PC. You can use the OK button for last channel you were on. Mouse control on the remote itself is very useful. I definitely recommend this remote.

Cons: Remote doesn't self illuminate in dark areas

3 out of 5 eggsOK but not good for dark

Pros: Pros are it works fine without drivers in Windows 7. And yes, it does have last channel, just like all these WMC remotes, you hit the Enter key at the bottom right and it will go to the last channel. Frame advance and frame back are available when you hit pause and then hit either the forward chapter button or back.

Cons: Terrible in the dark. For some horrible reason the number keys at the bottom are dark grey with black numbers. Impossible to read in any kind of dim lighting. My cheapo Rosewill is much easier to read and does the same thing as this.

5 out of 5 eggsBest HTPC remote

Pros: Works flawlessly with WMC, nothing to install. Has a mouse pad, which is great for those times you need to minimize or do something outside of the WMC interface. Buttons can be re-programmed (using the free LM Remote software).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have gone through several different Logitech universal remotes, and looked into several others, but all seem to miss the mouse control pad. Even with Logitech's new Harmony remote... they still have no mouse support. This simple, extremely easy to use control is a must have for any HTPC. I use it primarily with WMC, but also with JRiver Media Center. I actually bought 3 more once I saw how great this works. I still am waiting for a universal remote with mouse support, but since that will likely never happen, this is the next best thing.

1 out of 5 eggsTiny Little Buttons

Pros: It works.

Cons: No flash back to previous channel.
No programmable favorite channel buttons.
The buttons are too small and are not illuminated.

Other Thoughts: It works, but I find it easier to just use the Windows On-Screen Keyboard.
