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

Pros:
- Very well made
- Windows XP recognises this device without the use of drivers
- Cheapest generic PC remote control I've seen
- Works well with most programs
- Easy to use/set up
Cons:
- Multimedia buttons don't work with some programs
- Mouse movement is a bit slow
- Instructions are hilariously bad, but the device is easy enough to use you don't need them anyway
- Batteries not included
Other:
Excellent unit for the money. Some programs can't use the multimedia keys (e.g. WinAmp), but the basic keys/mouse function can be used with almost any program without hassles.
The only complaints I listed as 'cons' are relatively minor. This is one of my favourite ever DX purchases.
Bottomline:
Finally, a good quality and reasonably priced remote for your HTPC!
