Pros:
I have been searching for something like this, and behold...DX had it! ~IR range is pretty good ~Works well with Windows XP ~Retractable USB/IR receiver so that you can position it within range of the remote.
~Great concept and very clever product
~Like everything else I buy from DX...PRICE is good!
Cons:
~Keys are not mappable and only works with the bundled software that it came with.
~Packaging of mine was poor, it came in a very thin and little sandwich bag type plastic. No box.
~Not easy to use out of the box, you have to figure out which buttons are for which.
~Manual is hard to understand.
~Quality of the remote is not the best but its okay.
Other:
I wish the cord was longer for the IR receiver.
Bottomline:
For the price, I have no regrets!
