5 out of 5 eggsNICE!!

Pros: Looks well designed, nice features. If you are getting an HTPC a remote like this is a true must have! You can put the PC to sleep and wake it up with the touch of a button. No extra setup required. Just plug it in and go!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as advertised. IR blaster works with Vista Media Center and my Comcast cable box.

Cons: According to other reviews the remote stops working after a while. I'm not using the remote, just the reciever and IR blaster.

Other Thoughts: For various reasons I programmed this remote into a universal learning remote. Works great this way. However, "debounce" mode must be disabled on the reciever. This invloves editing the registry. Do a google search to find out how.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks nice

Pros: Just works. IR interferance from my 50" Plasma doesn't seem to affect it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased this for the IR receiver to use with HIP and GB-PVR. The remote works out of the box on XP and Vista, but I chose to use HIP to replace the built in driver. I found that I liked the remote enough and that it was so easy to program, that I continue to use it for my HTPC instead of a regular universal remote as I first intended.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: I use it with MythTV. The controls are configurable of course so you can make any button to be anything. It's comfortable in your hand. It has a good range.

Cons: Not much. I wish it didn't have Windows logo, but that's very minor annoyance. I can see that some people won't even mind it. I use the start button as "menu" button in mythtv.

Other Thoughts: I never use the number buttons.

5 out of 5 eggsEven a tween cant break it

Pros: As with all MS branded hardware, the quality is very high. Remote has been subjected to tween abuse and still functions perfectly and looks/feels new.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsThe Standard

Pros: Using this remote with XP MCE, works great right out of the box, not a problem with it so far. some of the buttons light up so its great for night time viewing...

Cons: Price, $40 seems a little much... $25 would be nice...

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to set up and works with Windows Media Center (Vista Ultimate x64). Keys are thoughtfully laid out. The backlit keys make it easy for us old guys to read.

Cons: Is not programmable, so won't operate other devices. Cost is similar to low end programmable remotes - but then this has the cost of the inrafred receiver w/USB also. So, not a bad value.

Other Thoughts: I have had one, that came bundled with Avermedia PCI-E tuner card, for over a year - no complaint. Bought a second remote to go with a similar card for my son's PC.

5 out of 5 eggsmythtv

Pros: Cheap and easy to setup with mythtv. Also has cool back-lit buttons.

Cons: not a programmable remote. i.e. you can't program it to work your TV and DVD player. Not really a con at this price point. Just an FYI.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a cheap and easy remote for your mythtv system then look no further. There are better/fancier remotes out there, but this is the cheap and easy way to go. It's well supported and you can get it up and running quickly. It's quite ironic that the best remote to get for your Linux-driven mythtv box is a windows remote, eh?
