There's not much that hasn't already been said about this remote control... Except perhaps some detailed technical aspects of its function... So that's what I am going to do.

1. The remote control installs itself as a regular USB keyboard and mouse - so no special infrared drivers are needed. It should work on pretty much any computer, whether PC, Mac, or Linux.

2. I was worried initially that the remote control didn't seem to have a 'menu' key. It does! It's basically the same as the right mouse button.

3. I wondered whether the mouse joystick was able to scroll diagonally as well as up, down and sideways. It does! It can scroll in 8 directions.

4. The 'email' and 'www' buttons are linked to your default email program and web browser, and will open those programs respectively.

5. The coloured A, B, C, & D buttons are the equivalent of what ever you have defined to be Ctrl-Alt-A, Ctrl-Alt-B, Ctrl-Alt-C, & Ctrl-Alt-D. As a matter of fact, it is also performs the actions associated with Ctrl-Alt-1 / 2 / 3 / 4, AND Ctrl-Alt-f1 / f2 / f3 / f4. You can't choose which of these functions to perform... If you press the 'A' button, it will perform a Ctrl-Alt-A, Ctrl-Alt-1, and Ctrl-Alt-f1 all at the same time. That means you could open 3 programs simultaneously, but you can't choose which of those 3 programs to open - they will *all* open. You should take that into consideration when programming your Ctrl-Alt key functions.

6. The 'NumLock' is a toggle button, switching sequentially between lower case and upper case letters, followed by the regular cursor / enter / tab / esc functions.

7. Numbers and some symbols are available, but not many symbols... The comma, full-stop. question-mark?

Bought this for use with a Raspberry Pi running XBMC Media Centre, just plugged it in and it worked no configuration!

Bought this to use only the receiver with a Harmony 300 remote, programmed it using Chinavision CVSB-983 as the original model and works flawlessly, strangely if you try to "teach" the Harmony using the original remote the receiver doesn't recognise the commands.

The remote is tiny, like a fat 1.5x sized credit card and probably easy to lose, it's hard to use while not looking at since all the keys are laid out calculator fashion. The remote has a plastic slot tray at the bottom for the battery that you push the edge of to left and pull out. It uses CR2032 3V lithium batteries which you can get ten on Amazon for a pound, CR-2016's are too thin to make contact.

I gave it five stars since it's probably the cheapest way of getting Harmony control of a PC/XBMC despite the flaws in the remote control.

This remote control is ecxellent for controlling a PC from a distance. The pointer control is easy and the shortcut buttons make launching, switching and closing applications a doddle. You can even do numpad type text entry. . It works 'out of the box' on my Windows Vista laptop and Mint Linux netbook. I bought it, really, for controlling a Raspberry Pi when I eventually get my hands on one. The product's build quality isn't great, but perfectly acceptable and well worth the money. And at less than a fiver, you just can't beat it. Why pay more?

I bought this remote wanting a simple little remote to control XBMC on my media centre PC.

It works very well, emulating a USB keyboard and mouse, so there are no drivers and it works just fine in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux, and no doubt just about any other OS.

The only drawback for me is that I suspect it's using IrDA or some other awkward IR protocol - so far, I haven't been able to get my Harmony remote to emulate it, even though the harmony does seem to be able to recognise the signals being sent.

A nice, small size for the remote too - not much larger than a credit card in area, though obviously quite a bit thicker.

For the price, this is a great little remote; albeit the mouse control is too fiddly to be of real use. It works really well with XBMC on my laptop.

Anyway, the point of this review was to share my findings with other Harmony users - after much experimentation I found the I could get all the basic commands on my Logitech Harmony 300 by using manufacturer 'Chinavasion' and model 'CVSN-983'. Once synchronized, I have been able to map some of the other buttons.

I bought this to use with my Raspberry PI running XBMC. Plugged it in and switched it on and it worked straight away. Works really well for controlling films etc.. Having read some of the reviews i was a bit concerned how well the mouse control bit would work but it works really well, not too fast or too slow.

The biggest problem with this remote is the cursor control, it just doesn't work smoothly at all. Even with a lot of practice it's hard to get the mouse pointer to go where you want. I eventually gave up and just resorted to using a cheapy wireless mouse & keyboard - B005ZRFHSS
