Very simple to install and use. Installation cannot be easier. Just plug-and-play. Windows 7/Vista already has native ready to use drivers. Works out-of-the-box.
You can control the keyboard navigational keys (up,down,left,right) or the mouse moving with the directional buttons. A handy button allows you to switch which mode you want to use (keyboard or mouse).
Play, pause, stop, forward, volume, they all work.
Good range. Works well from the couch ~5m away from the IR sensor.
Not the best interface for moving the mouse pointer. It's like using the keyboard accessibility to mouse the mouse on direction at a time.
Windows XP also has drivers, but not fully functional as Vista or 7. Some keys do not work as expected.
Works well with Windows Media Center, but I haven't tested all of it in this player.
I recommend this if you want a simple ready-to-use solution. If all you want is the ability to play/pause or adjust the volume while your computer sits besides your LCD TV, this is your choice. Not top of the line, but it sure does the job it says it does.
