    Pros
    Lots of buttons; well laid out; easy to hold and feel the buttons in the dark; recieiver & remote respond pointing just about anywhere.
    Cons
    No backlit anything so you have to remember where the buttons are and remember the feel, pretty easy to do withthe layout and style but still... Not hard to put an LED light in the back... Everything is backlit.
    Summary
    Replaced my original Windows media centre remote. The old ones been stepped on and drop  kicked how many times an never failed. Backlit and peanut shaped it was almost perfect except that the number pad wasn't backlit just the upper half. The new remote is pretty sleek, it's all black vs black and grey. It's longer and slimmer and has a nice curve, the edges are a bit hard but not bad, the layout is almost completly different so a huge learning curve but the additional buttons are pretty nice, super disapointed that there was only one IR blaster, the old remote had two, can't use them on the new one as i've lost the old ones years ago when I last used it with a digital box(the main reason I bought the new one) So theres no chance i'll be dual digital boxing it as buying a second blaster to pkug in(there is a port for a second one on the back of the ir reciever) but no point, no real canadian HD support with windows media centre as HD set top boxes are the only option. But I digress, nice remote, not the best but it does the job right.

    Pros
    Cheap. Works out of the box with XBMC.
    Cons
    Button placement. Ugly green button.
    Summary
    I've purchased a few MCE remotes before for use with XBMC and have had great success. This is no exception. It works out of the box with XBMC (both with a manual install on Debian and with xbmc-live/xbmcbuntu).

    Compared to my pcusa remote (sku 25972, not currently available) this remote has a poorer button placement. Several of the buttons I use frequently in XBMC cannot be located easily by feel alone and/or are awkward to reach.

    Green button is pretty ugly.

    Works great, true MCE Remote, affordable
    Cons
    Button placement is a little awkward
    Summary
    I had a different MCE remote before this one, this is the one I ordered for a new HTPC and I was so impressed I've already ordered a second one. The button placements leave something to be desired, but other than that little failing I'm very pleased with this MCE remote.

    Pros
    Works out of the box.
    Does what it's supposed to.
    Looks good.
    Cons
    None so far.
    Summary
    Using this small remote to navigate a HTPC running XBMC. Some of buttons launch windows MCE automtically, but the basic functionality works without any configuration in XBMC. It may be possible to remap those other buttons for added functionality in XBMC, but I havn't looked into it yet.

    Pros
    Works
    Decent range
    Affordable
    Win7 compatible
    Cons
    None for under $30
    Summary
    This is a basic MCE remote that works with Windows 7 x64. The shape is a little awkward. My favourite feature is the ability to put the system to sleep and wake it up.

    Cons
    None
    Summary
    Worked right out of the box. Just plug in the IR receiver and MCE automatically pops up. Very responsive and flows through the categories without a problem. Great addition to any HTPC.

    Pros
    Works well with Win7 MCE
    Cons
    No exit button
    Summary
    This remote is a very nice compliment to a MCE-based HTPC. I use mine with Windows 7 (zero compatibility issues, by the way) - using a well-modded Media Browsser plug-in for MCE, and the remote bats nary an eyelash as it effortlessly navigates through my libraries. It is comfortable to hold, the build quality feels good, and has already been dropped a couple of times by my 2-year-old without any detrimental repercussions.

    If there was one feature I wish the remote had, it would be an exit button for MCE, so that I could use the remote to return to Windows, rather than having to use my wireless keyboard/mouse to do it. It's a minor quibble though, so overall, this remote gets full marks from me.

    Pros
    Best looking MCE remote. Works with 7 and Vista
    Cons
    Still pretty cheap feeling, but the price reflects it.
    Summary
    Overall, probably the best option for a MCE remote, especially considering the price. A pain to set up if you aren't using MCE, but it will work with other software (xbmc).

    Overall worth it for the price.

    No backlight
    Summary
    Very nice remote control, plug and play with Windows 7. It comes with batteries, response and feel on controls are perfect. Nice inexpensive tool for HTPC.

    Pros
    +Remote
    +Small receiver
    Cons
    -NO IR blasters or plug for one
    -Not backlit

    Summary
    Got this since I wanted a remote for watching DVD's/Bluray and it does that well, but the lack of IR blasters or even a port for them suck for MCE use.

    This remote also makes my MCE machine operate so I had to hide its receiver and use my WinTV remote for that computer and the MCE 2005 remote with my Vista system since its easier to use I find.

    If you do not need IR Blasters, or blacklit keys, get this.
