This review is from: NYKO Raven Wireless PS3 Controller (offset sticks)
Pros: I dunno...Cheap.
Cons: This controller uses a USB dongle to connect to your console. (something i was unaware of when i purchased it.) I returned the first one I bought because of a large dead spot in the center of one of the joysticks. the second one was the same. Though i kept it rather than try to return it again.
Other Thoughts: I think I will stick to licensed hardware even though it is more expensive you know it will have the functionality you want. Like being rechargeable and connecting using the devices built in connectivity.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA901ND Wireless N300 Access Point, 300Mbps, Multifunction, Multiple SSID
Pros: This device was easy to set-up, easy to configure and has worked faultlessly for as long as I have owned it. It comes with it's own POE power injector which is fantastic.
has all the features and security that I required for my home network. Great signal strength and coverage.
Other Thoughts: I prefer a wired router and switch since my house is wired with cat 5 and the switch and router are in a wiring cabinet in the basement and i want even distribution of wireless signal throughout the house. Using the included power injector I was able to put the device in a central location on the ground floor and run it with a single cable. Extremely convenient.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cideko AVK-02-915 Black RF Wireless Mini Keyboard
Pros: This device works as advertised. I is a fully functioning qwerty keyboard and motion controlled mouse for a PC. It is just about the size of an x-box 360 controller and fits comfortably in two hands.
Buttons are solid with two AA batteries it goes a long time between replacements.
A nice feature is a pointer lock button that is well placed and serves the same purpose as picking up your mouse when you reach the edge of your mouse pad. It will also turn of the pointer so you can navigate with the arrows for programs like XBMC.
Other Thoughts: There is a little bit of configuration that needs to be done to make the controller perfect.
The left and right trigger buttons correspond to the left and right mouse buttons, so if you are right handed you will be left clicking with your right hand. It can be awkward but changing the button settings to left handed in the windows config solves that issue.
Secondly the button in the center of the arrow keys is the middle click which is also a little counter intuitive since that is the ideal spot for and enter or right click key so launching things you select with the arrow keys can be awkward. I used a third party software to remap the middle mouse button to the enter key to resolve this issue.
After those few adjustments this keyboard has been ideal as an HTPC remote.
