Quality – Wireless Multimedia Infrared IR Remote Controller with USB Receiver for PC (2*AAA) Reviews

Pros:
Works in XBMC and Windows Media Center. Mouse option is really handy and works good better than expected with only 4-way nav. The range is waaaaaay more than I expected. The receiver is plugged into the back of my computer and I can still control my PC from the couch, facing in the opposite direction about 4 meters away. The range is much better than my Philips TV remote, for example, which does not respond when pointing the remote in opposite directions.
Cons:
The price is not extremely low, but the product is perfect, which is defenitely worth the money. The plastic looks a bit cheap, but feels sturdy. I don't see the advantage of mouse control without a keyboard. All of these are actually pro's, not cons :P
Other:
Bottomline:
If you need an Media Center remote with decent quality and extremely large range which works out of the box with XBMC, buy this. It works.
