A must-have accessory for media server! – Driver-free Universal USB IR Media Remote Controller for PC (2*AAA) Reviews

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

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 comes with a manual. It's powered by two AAA batteries that are not included in the package.
Bottomline:
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.
