4 out of 5 eggsRemote Starts or Resets your PC

Pros: Works exactly as it's supposed to.

Cons: None so far, but the remote needs to be pointed at a somewhat specific location to get the antenna.

Other Thoughts: I used this because I use my PC as part of my entertainment center. While it's not too hard to get up and push a button, I like that I can start it up and anything else from my couch. It's definitely not needed for a PC, but i found it helpful for my needs. Setting up was interesting as there could be more labeling on some of the wiring, but it still didn't take long to set up and worked like a charm. Just make sure to point the remote at the PC. If a solid object is in the way, it might keep the remote from reaching the antenna. Overall I am very happy with the start controller and would recommend it to anyone that could use a remote to start your PC.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Sure, I don't have to get out of my chair 1/10 times that this may actually work.

Cons: Two things:

Distance: Sucks, probably 20 feet away and through one wall and it won't work. So I have to get up walk 5 feet towards where it is and then hit the power...and it still won't work! I end up having to go all the way to the computer!

Defective: Right out the box, I would have to press the Reset and then the Power button for the power button to work...almost as if it is a bad design. I ended up just switching to the Reset terminals to power on my computer.

Other Thoughts: The solder work and assembly on this is awful. The Receiver Chip and the Relays aren't even touching the board on one side. Why use relay, use a opto-isolater...not only are they cheaper the power required to activate them is 1/10 that is a relay.

If I worked at LOGISYS, would be embarrassed to have manufactured something that only works half-a$$ed.

1 out of 5 eggsPointless/Waste of money!

Pros: None

Cons: You can set your Bios to do the same thing. I would not buy this, setting your Bios is free.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work

Pros: Brilliant idea.

Cons: they made it over-complicated. There were no +- signs on the actual pci card so i had to guess, and so i used the power of deductive reasoning to realize that i simply got a defective card. flipped around the cables numerous times to no avail.

Other Thoughts: get it if you'd like, just realize you MIGHT get a defective product like mine. i howevrr will be returning mine.

5 out of 5 eggsNovelty But Fun To Have

Pros: -Good Price
-Great Range. I usually turn my computer on when I'm on my way up the street to my house.
-Comes with 2 remotes (batteries included)

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Although this is considered a novelty item, it can be used for privacy/security reasons. If you do not plug in the cables for the power and reset on your case, the computer will only be able to turn on using the remote.

5 out of 5 eggsRemote Start!

Pros: First off, it's a remote start just for this it's 5 Eggs. It's also easy to install. As said before it can add as a security measure for your system. Just install it and close your system with security screws. No additional power needed and the remotes come with batteries. My system is waiting for me before I even open the front door when I get home, this paired with a SSD boot drive.

Cons: The loud clicking noise it makes when activated is a little bothersome. Would have been nice if it made a nicer tweet like when you unlock your car. The antenna is on a fixed position, would have been nice if it was movable on the elbows.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as designed

Pros: This is very easy to set up and does not require a motherboard slot for power so it can be installed in any available slot. The unit works very well and has good range in the house. You can also disconnect the computer case power and reset buttons to make sure no unwelcome people use it.

Cons: The install guide is very vague as to where to install each cable but a little testing before installing the receiver can verify if correct.

Other Thoughts: This does exactly what it is was designed for and does it well. I would have liked to see this with a usb hookup and a Microsoft remote to make this a great all around remote.

5 out of 5 eggsCool and usefull

Pros: It seems to be a toy that is not needed, but I see it as added security. My daughter is staying in my inlaw apartment and has different boy friends from time to time. I wanted a way to limit the possibility of someone using my computer without permission. This works great, without the remote, someone can push the case button to turn on and nothing will happen.

Cons: None
