    The best remote control for PC

    posted by Atostes88 on 08/01/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good quality, easy to install on any OS. Use it to control XBMC does not require any configuration of the buttons work perfectly. Receiver receives control signal even slightly away from the control.
    Cons:
    Nothing. Already used other controls before I bought on other sites but this is the best suits my needs perfectly.

    Some cons are. 1. All the buttons are pressed hard enough. 2. Button is blue can not read the inscription. They simply do not s...

    works ok; fixed key mapping; no driver needed

    posted by meridor on 02/24/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works fine. Works even in a long living room (unlike other more expensive remotes). No driver needed, it is just an external keyboard. No driver needed for linux either.
    Cons:
    Fixed key mapping. See the other reviews for the exact mapping. Haven't tested the software on the disk, since it works withou...

    IR receiver and remote command

    posted by andbad on 02/17/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The only IR receiver I have found around. WinXP detects it quietly and I can use with many programs without problems. It works perfectly with Meedio, less well with VLC.
    Cons:
    The remote is awkward, the keys are all equal and not apart, and is also too thin. The receiver has a wide angle of reception,...
