3 out of 5 eggsRequires some experimentation, but works

Pros: Lets you use a mouse pointer instead of arrows to navigate your XIOS screen. Rechargeable via USB, which is handy.

Cons: Tricky to get it working the way it should (see my notes below). Once you get it situated, though, the real issue is that it has no arrow keys (at least none that I can find). This is a huge usability problem. Menus are often easier to navigate with arrow keys, plus sometimes that is the only way you can get menus that are too long for the screen to scroll down or across (unless I am missing something). The only way around this is to use both remotes. I usually have the Sense in my right hand for the pointer and the regular remote in my left hand for arrow keys. It's a bit silly, but it gets the job done.

Other Thoughts: When I first started using this, it was miserable. My mouse pointer was sluggish and unresponsive and kept falling down the screen. Increasing the pointer speed to about 3/4 of max and moving the box next to the TV and about mid-height of the screen has fixed this, but you may have to mess around with placement to find what works for your setup. Holding the controller horizontal is important. It isn't perfect, but it's also not expensive.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat idea, terrible execution

Pros: After searching for a remote for my HTPC, I settled on this. It is supposed to offer a better experience in cursor control: you point the remote at the screen and move it around and the cursor moves as well. The construction was high quality on the outside and it seemed quite solid. I plugged it in and it worked instantly, no configuration required. It didn't come with a manual, I guess because it doesn't need one.

Cons: The control over the cursor and the experience was terrible. The cursor lagged behind the remote movements severely, and it was difficult to control, akin to using a roller-ball mouse on thick shag carpet. I had to slowly move the remote up and then quickly move it down over and over to get the cursor to move down the screen. It frequently didn't respond to my movements of the remote at all. Sometimes it was nowhere near sensitive enough and sometimes it was way too sensitive. Also, when I plugged it in gently to charge it, the micro-USB connector fell out of the remote onto the floor.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this. I had to return this item to Newegg for a refund.
