  • Cheap nice IR remote

    posted by brianfroelund on 03:17:22 G11T 17/11/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The remote is very cheap and works out of the box with most operating systems. The buttons are nice to press and similar to tv bundled remotes. The buttons are reasonably laid out, though i would have preferred to have 4 separate direction buttons with an ok in the middle.

    Cons: The remote is very lightweight which give it a very cheap plasticky feel. The quality in general is not very good and the soldering on the board is also not superb.

    Other: The price is good. If you want a really nice remote then look elsewhere, if you just need something that gets the job done or maybe just need the usb ir receiver then this is your remote of choice.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Unbox and plugin and you are ready to go. The installation cannot be made any easier. On this very cheap remote controller you will find enough buttons for most applications and the remote seems to be of good quality. I recommend this one as the price and quality ratio is so exellent so I bought it just to get the reciver part, the remote is backup for my main remote.

    Cons: When I tried the remote I noticed that the mouse cursor moving isn't something you should rely on, do not mistake this for a mouse :)

    Other: Cheap and works, plug & play.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Its a wonderful plug and play PC remote, no drivers needed. its great if you have your PC as a media center. Its has all of your basic mouse functions, as well as other buttons that make it easier to browse through your PC. the customizable buttons (colored ones) are a great add-on, you can download any free keyboard shortcut program (such as HotKeyz) and create macros using the 4 buttons so you can log in to a site, open custom folders, and many more.

    Cons: The only part that is a bit defective is the mouse controller - if you press too hard on either direction, it tends to deviate horizontally which is very annoying. Also - the buttons do not work on all players, but if you can adjust them inside the player (like on VLC player) then you can solve this in 5 minutes.

    Other: Other than the mouse deviation - a great purchase.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Plug and Play in GNU/Linux, ideal for use with a media center,i'm using it with XBMC. Then You can improve and tune to your delight the configuration .

    Cons: Not that i found, at least not for the use i need.

    Other: Easy to install and configurable, at least in Debian GNU/Linux , though i have not need to do it. I have now to tinker with the configuration of some of the buttons to see which things i can do.

  • Perfect to XBMC

    posted by phgsbr on 11:40:56 G12T 01/12/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Really driver free, just plug and play! I use this in a Ubuntu XBMC and the grey keys works without problems. Also works in gnome as mouse and keyboard. High range.

    Cons: The color buttons dont works in XBMC. The Right click does xbmc crash sometimes. Batterys not include. batteries not included. The keys are numbers and letters together, if only they were separated to not disrupt typing, however this does not bother much.

    Other: Perfect buy to use with a homemade HTPC.

  • A must-have accessory for media server!

    posted by Jakkeke on 05:48:24 G11T 30/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -Cheap! The item would have cost at least 20$ in my country(Finland)! -Versatile. Not only does it get the job done when it comes to controlling media, but it also has mouse "pad" and R and L mouse buttons so you can easily check your email with it too. -Hotkeys. User can specify an action for each hotkey. For example launching your media server program and/or locking your computer. -Enough buttons for a complete control of your media server. -No drivers needed neither do you have to install anything to your computer.

    Cons: -The mouse pad could be better. That's why I will have to give 4/5 build of quality. The pad works though, but it is quite hard to use. -You have to point the remote exactly to the receiver. I'll forgive this though, because some of the more expensive ones also have this.

    Other: It's handy, it's cheap and it's almost as good as a more expensive one. I would recommend this product for anyone who has a media server(for example XBMC, which I use daily) or just likes to listen to music or watch movies on their computers. Cheers.

  • Good remote for this price

    posted by FatalErr on 13:43:47 G11T 29/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It works out of the box. Can be used to control mouse, have multimedia control keys. Perfect price for this functionality.

    Cons: It looks and feels a little bit cheap. If you need something more visually impressive or functional than it, you probably should consider more expensive alternatives.

    Other: It looks like a good buy for this price. Buy it without any thoughts if you just need a nice IR remote controller for minimum price!

  • Nice cheap remote

    posted by arjhun on 03:24:53 G11T 28/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very cheap and ok form factor. This device gives you value for money and workes out of the box. The infra-red receiver can be used for other devices. I'm using this remote with XBMC 11 (eden) and it works like it promised. You maybe have to do some optinal keymapping. You can use evdev to check for key events. Because it's just a usb keyboard and mouse no drivers are needed.

    Cons: The packeging was realy cheap, and didnt survive transport. However, the device did, that says something. The mouse joystick is very painfull to use. It's not an analog joystick. It only goes Up Down left right. And it's in a place where you expect to find arrow keys with an ok button for menu's etc. The

    Other: - value for money - light & cheap, but strong design. - buttons feel ok - works out of the box, and as promissed - mouse doesn't seem very usefull

  • Still using it after two years

    posted by Armaniac on 10:44:28 G10T 08/10/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Pros: This remote does what it promises: It is an universal IR media remote for PC's. I have used it for several computer systems just to give some presentations and such. As you do not have to install any software, you can just plug and play in any (Windows is all I tested it with) system.

    Cons: Feels a bit light, but the device and especially the buttons held up fine for the last two years.

    Other: Cheap too!

    posted by s7on3 on 07:37:36 G9T 02/09/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: 1. Good quality 2. Great price 3. Works fine on Windows 7 although it is not listed as supported OS and I am pretty happy with that (I was almost sure it will, when I ordered it).

    Cons: Hard to find any cons. In fact I don't use all of the supplied buttons everyday, but I didn't found a problem so far. Increasing and decreasing the volume works fine, although it is not shown visually, but this is not actually a problem /issue

    Other: I recommend this great gadget if you're looking for such thing. I'm sure you won't regret for this choice.
