I bought this remote just for the IR receiver to use with my Logitech Harmony 525 Advanced Universal Remote Control. It works great.
Installation is just plug-and-play. The IR receiver presents itself to the computer as a keyboard and each press on the remote triggers specific key press(es). These are standard for some software players like MS Media Center or XBMC but I had to configure the player of my choice - BSPlayer - to recognise the buttons I use.
This remote can also emulate mouse but I haven't even tried it because it seems impractical to me.

Bought this as I was building an HTPC for my father, however was disappointed to find that the receiver which came with this device (this allegedly ships with one of two) was recognised as a keyboard rather than an MCE device and I have been unable to get it to function properly with a GNU/Linux base OS (lirc does not register it as an IR device) and although some keys just work, a lot do not (e.g. the home button and power buttons) - although that said: it works fine with the inbuilt Windows 7 media center software.

The remote itself is light and has a cheap plastic feel to it, but if you're using Windows and looking for a cheap remote, this will probably do the job just fine for you.

I bought this remote for use with Windows Media Centre on Windows 7 and although it works quite well (I particularly like the dedicated button for changing aspect ratio when watching a move) there are a few problems. Firstly, the power button doesn't close the PC down like other remotes I have used (it opens the standard windows Shut down/Restart/Sleep/Hibernate screen). More importantly, the skip forward and backward buttons don't work at all. I contacted SPEEDLINK support and they said

Sorry but this remote isn't 100% compatible with Windows7.

This remote simulated shortcut from a keyboard and some shortcuts have changed with windows 7.

Best regards,
Your SPEEDLINK Support team

To their credit, they did come back within 24 hours, but without a solution.

In summary: Close, but no cigar.

This remote would be fine (good price, looks ok and not too cheap) if it didn't have a serious problem: it's doesn't support suspending your media centre! When I suspend my linux media centre (but I tried with a Windows laptop too) and then wake it up with the remote itself or pressing a key on a keyboard then the remote goes crazy and keeps sending the same key press forever. The only solution is to physically unplug the USB receiver after every wake up!

Not a lot can be said about this. The remote is a little flimsy but it works fine. Couldn't really expect anything better considering how cheap it is.

I finally got around to try it and I wish I could give it 0 stars. In order for a remote control for a PC to be useful it needs to have an event channel or at the very least send unique keycodes. This one:
1. Does not have an event channel
2. It provides only keyboard emulation
3. It does not send unique keycodes - the muppet who designed it has made it "user friendly" so it sends key combinations. So if you for example want to map "TV ON" in your media center software to something, well, you cannot as the idiotic thing will not send a unique code - it will send scancodes for Ctrl and T sequentially instead. To add insult to injury the autorepeat on these is broken too so even if you feel like rewriting the complete keymap of let's say xbnc to match your needs it will not get you very far.
