    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    It works well, as long as you don't block the signal in any way. It came with a F to M USB extension cable, which i'm assuming is so that you can keep the reciever and remote within view of each other when there aren't any visable USB ports available :P

    Cons:

    The flashing light is slightly annoying after a while. Infared signals work basically through light patterns.. And every time the reciever ''sees'' a flash from any remote, the LED on the reciever flashes in the same pattern as it saw. And i mean any infared transmitter.. Including my motion sensor.. Also, most modern remotes don't need to be in such direct view.. But i suppose it's alright for the price :P

    OtherThoughts:

    I would really, really like to disconnect the LED.. And I haven't gotten around to it yet, but if you wish to use it with XBMC, you might have to change a few settings on the computer in order for it to open up XBMC rather than windows media center.

    Bottomline:

    Perfect for anyone who use any type of computer as a media center, with a bit of modding i even got it to work on linux. It is a much cheaper solution than purchasing a computer remote from a local store.
