Pros: Excellent functionality!
Worked out of the box - no setup!
Even comes with batteries.
Cons: Made for tiny hands
No lighted buttons
No TV control
Other Thoughts: Works flawlessly with my Windows 7 X64 Media Center HTPC. I wish Rosewill would make a larger version of this remote with lighted buttons, which would turn my Sony TV on and off. I would gladly pay more. It's such a pain to have to keep this AND my TV remote handy JUST to turn it on and off! Other than my cons, I love this remote, but I also paid about $10 less when I bought it. I don't understand why they don't listen to people and make it larger, with lighted buttons, and TV control. They would have the best Media Center remote on the market IMO. Even so, this one is well worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: I didn't get this from Newegg,, but what a piece of JUNK! For 2 days it worked with Windows 7 x64 after installing the drivers from the disk. When I tried to do a backup onto a network drive my connection dropped after about an hour. I deleted the partial backup and started over - same problem. I wasn't sure what caused it, so I decided to give up for now.
Internet access also worked fine for the first couple of days. Suddenly it started randomly disconnecting, then within 3 days just refused to download any web pages. It just sits there trying and then times out with an error.
Sometimes it will randomly drop my internet connection and nothing will bring it back except unplugging the adapter and plugging it into a different USB port.
I have another computer with the same OS, on the same network, with a Linksys adapter, and it works flawlessly.
I have tried everything, and mind you, I am a systems analyst and work with networks every day.
Other Thoughts: Now I've been cursing this thing out for over a week and I give up. Going back to the store right now to return it Netgear has lost me as a customer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid, powerful and quiet. 7 Year Warranty! All the cables I could possibly want, and plenty long.
Other Thoughts: I use this in my HTPC. It's been rock solid for 2 years. Finally wouldn't turn on one day, so I followed instructions for an RMA on their web site. They had a new PS at my door in AZ in LESS THAN A WEEK! I couldn't be happier with the rock-solid construction, and it runs quietly. Cosair has gained another fan, as long as they keep producing great products like this with the outstanding customer service that I received.READ FULL REVIEW
