5 out of 5 eggsWorth the Money

Pros: Worked well right out of the box. Used it for gaming pc because i wanted to be able to put it to sleep without getting up (and working windows media center). Though now its found a second use as a remote for my Xbox 360. Yeah I learned by accident the sleep button can power on/off the 360 and use it to browse media.

Cons: Buttons are really slick, sometimes hard to keep a hold of the remote.

Other Thoughts: All around a great remote for the money, I can control my pc and xbox from one remote, what else can I ask for?

1 out of 5 eggsNo Good

Pros: Did not work. Requested RMA, 2nd unit shipped did not work.

Cons: Did not work at all, tested in 4 Windows 7 Pro and Home Premium computers, all with USB 2.0 ports. All systems 64bit as well.

Other Thoughts: The AVS Gear GP-IR01BK (intended for vista) works fine with Windows 7 64bit, however it will not power your system from sleep mode or function when resumed from sleep (you will need to unplug/replug the usb sensor after manually resuming from sleep). If powering up after a reboot or shutdown, remote works fine.

1 out of 5 eggsDud

Pros: Nice looking remote. Newegg's return policy.

Cons: Did not work. Red light worked on the remote but did nothing. Maybe it was the receiver don't know. Returned immediately.

Other Thoughts: If you need a reliable remote order Item#: N82E16823166095 - Adesso ARC-1100 Vista Infrared Remote Control. It may not look as fancy but it works and it has a mousepad!!!

1 out of 5 eggsGreat, if it worked.

Pros: Remote works, doesn't require outside drivers. Installs quickly.

Cons: The dongle was inoperable upon reciept.

Other Thoughts: Once I get the new one back, we'll see about it. Too bad the shipping is about a quarter of the cost of the thing to begin with.

1 out of 5 eggsReally good remote... if it works

Pros: The remote is really versatile and works well. Nice button layout, etc.

Cons: I worked great for 3 months and just died out of nowhere. Same symptoms as another review -- remote light flashes but the receiver's led stopped lighting up. So, basically the receiver seems to be dead.

Other Thoughts: Will be trying to contact the original company/newegg for a replacement. Let's see if it works out.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work. Twice.

Pros: Seemed cheap enough.

Cons: First one didn't work, sent it back. Replacement didn't work either.

Other Thoughts: The USB IR receiver is recognized, but it never recognizes remote inputs. This happened with both remotes on multiple computers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat remote

Pros: No problems what so ever! Works really well with my Win 7 MCE. The power button puts my HTPC to stand by and wakes it up too.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Does what a cheap remote is meant for, I use it because i'm to lazy to get up from bed and control the movie settings. Range in good, infrared receiver has a very wide range, also works with GOM Player, MediaMonkey, and Media Player Classic

Cons: The only problem I noticed was the buttons always feel greasy and they also feel very cheap.

Other Thoughts: Very good remote if you just need something to get the job done. If it is for a Home Theater PC you might want to get something a little better

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Does exactly what it claims. I bought it for my Win 7 64bit HTPC and have had absolutely no problems with it.
I have the dongle mounted to a front USB port, but it comes with an extender to use with a rear port.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat item, works well

Pros: Plug n play, works right out of the box, easy to use

Cons: Wish the price was lower, I'm betting the manufacturer is making a good deal of margin per unit

Other Thoughts: Bought this item for use with a new MCE7 setup and its worked pretty well, with exception to rewinding a movie (MCE problem, confirmed with a different model remote). The sleep button function is especially useful as its more convenient to simply hit 'sleep' and let Windows gracefully go to standby, instead of going through all of the motions to go back to main and into the tasks menu.
