  • Nice cheap remote

    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

    OtherThoughts:

    The Mouse and number/ directional keys could be swapped on the device, making it more intuitive.

    Bottomline:

    - 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
