Nice – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

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

Pros:
- Easy to use after you figure out what needs to be done
- can solve many problems and turn almost any device controllable for on/off.
Cons:
- Even the 220V version comes with American plugs, so I had to connect a simple pin adapter to plug it in the European socket in my house. it's not that much hassle, but it's becoming a series of 3 devices one on another, which doesn't seem too safe.
I wish they would sell a European version as well.
- It's working on IR, not Radio, so anything can block the signal, you should understand that before you decide if it suites you.
- It comes with no English instructions, and I had to read some posts here to understand that the button is on/off, and that training is done bye turning it on, holding the button until the red light blinks, pressing the remote button, and releasing.
Other:
Not really
Bottomline:
If you can live with it's cons, it might be a goos solution for you.
