Great Remote!

 

Uses radio frequency to control your HTPC ; Nice screen to browse your music library ; Can control three other devices ; Backlit keys ; Ability to program custom keys ; Gyroscope for easy mouse cursor movement

Sometimes it takes up to 30 seconds for the music library to appear ; There is no ability to program macros ; The remote is kind of long

I like it, works with Windows 7!

 

This the first review I have written but I was so impressed with it I wanted to let eveyone know. If you were like me and hesitant I personally think it's worth it!

I got this remote really cheap so I thought it was worth the gamble if it didn't work as advertised. I have to say, I am very impressed! I bought this to replace an ATI Remote Wonder when I upgraded my PC. I wish I had done this a long time ago! It...

None as of yet and we have been using it for a month or so

Great HTPC Mouse and Keyboard combo.

 

This is my second HTPC and my second keyboard/mouse. I have been very satisfied with this device and I would recommend it to others. Not to mention that Newegg has a great price.

The mouse can be used for more than just controlling the PC. The device codes were on the manufactures website. I can control my PC as well as my TV and my cable box. The mouse is basically the same as using a controller from a Wii. The keyboard is...

Device code should be included with the documentation. And they should be easier to find on the website. I had to dig a bit. But it was worth it

worth every penny

 

I didn't think I would use the music option but it's pretty cool. Takes a long time to initialize to your library and almost seems broke for a minute cause the hour glass sits there forever. Just give it a minute. I downloaded the software from...

I should have bought this remote a long time ago! Very responsive and easy to use

Like the others said, the setup was kind of a pain. The box did not contain detailed instructions for programming it so I had to download instructions from the website. Once you get going it is pretty easy. Let me simplify the instructions to get...

No win7 support, hard to program for remote function

 

I purchased this for almost $200 when I bought it. It has come down in price significantly since then which makes it overall a better value. However, I cannot get past the fact that the company is publicly stating that they don't intend to provide...

Easy to setup for computer control

Programming the remote to act as a universal remote is very frustrating and it does not work very well for this function. Gyration has stated that they do not intend to provide support for Windows 7...

Nice Kit

 

The system is expensive, though in my opinion well worth it. The remote is large, but full of functionality. If the unit does not contain your device codes and you have to learn you have to be selective about what buttons you program. The documentation...

The device is easy to use and setup. The learning feature was my main reason for the purchase and works great. The mouse is accurate and fluid. Customer support is very responsive

The remote will only learn 15 IR signals. The keyboard isn't as accurate and is cramped. Linux support isn't as prevalent as it could be

Can't Say enough

 

I own two of these for two different TV/HTPC combos and my wife loves it too. Very functional, and the air mouse works like a Wii controller. Once you get used to it it is great. I would recommend this to any one making a HTPC to control everything.

Controls my TV, Cable box, PC, and Receiver. Learning feature is great. Functions on 2.4 GHZ so when using it to control the PC I never have to point right at it. Keyboard is very handy too

Takes some work to get the functions of the other remotes/devices progrommed in. Sometime I had to do it multiple times to get the function right, but when I did, I have not had a problem since

Excellent combo mouse and keyboard

 

I need to see if there is a way to update the remote so that I cant get down to just ONE remote - which was my overall goal. So far unsuccessful. But the keyboard / mouse functions work great and it was worth the money just to get those working. I'd...

I use this in combination with a media PC running Boxee connected to my LCD in the living room. Bought in January. So, almost 4 months weekly use ; Excellent products overall. "Mouse" remote takes a little getting used to, but it works well for...

I haven't been able to get the remote to control anything except the PC. I've tried many times to get it to talk to the TV or other audio products with no success, which is a disappointment. The volume control works fine to control PC volume... but not...

Love the kit

 

After a week of using the remote I have become really proficient and am almost as quick and exact as with a mouse. I like the fact that the remote can put the computer to sleep and also bring it out of sleep. The keyboard is small and without a numeric...

Easy initial setup, easy to use, great features. The remote is amazing. It is exact, intuitive and really easy to use

Couldn't get the remote to accept and control my Sony audio box. Neither preprogrammed codes nor learning worked. Annoying since it means I still need to keep the Sony remote on the table
