It does turn off my device, but despite clearly having power from my computer, it will not powerup from any button (I think it is related to the S3 in my device or Ubuntu 10.10, as another reviewer said he was able to power it on with his.)
Works great (UPDATE, if not blinded by a plasma TV).
I just ordered 2 more, and the same day, I moved the box to a different room, I then noticed an issue with the device, the same issue I noticed with a previous Rosewell remote I bought as well. Plasma TVs will blind it. Previously I had a big mirror behind the couch in my living room across from my TV, and I realized the the TV was blinding my Rosewell remote (don't ask how long it took to figure that out). I have recently moved and have no mirror across from the TV now, so I didn't even think about it. But this remote suffers from the same thing, Plasma TVs (Panasonic at least) will blind the receiver with a signal so close to IR that the receiver cannot see the signal coming from the remote. It's ok if the screen is displaying something dark, but a very bright image will blind it right away. My plasma TV can blind this receiver from from it's reflection in a mirror mounted 20 feet away, that means it could blind it 40 feet away if it were pointed right at it.
I bought these (3 now) to replace some old XBOX1 usb receivers I had hacked into standard USB plugs because they are simply not supported by Ubuntu 10.10 like they used to be and it was becoming a hassle to spend 2 hours to get them to work every time I had to reload the media centers. So it seems that not all remote receivers have this issue as the XBOX1 receivers do not have this issue at all.Read more ›
Note that this remote may be very frustrating to work with on Windows XP pro. However, there was not a single problem on Windows 7.
I am very pleased with this remote and can happily recommend it.
Best of all it puts and wakes the PC from sleep instantly no deed to shut down or sign in to the computer. It is mated perfectly to the PC media center and it is as if custom designed for my purpose. I love the back button. It brings you back to whatever you were watching instantly without any fuss. The remote is well designed and fits the hand and balanced well. There is no chance it will be pointed in the wrong direction.
Update after first impression:
The remote is much more versatile than I first expect. It does act like a RF remote. It will work no matter which direction you point. The OK button also enlarges the pictures for detail reviewing. You can change the enlargement by multiple clicking of the OK button. Also by slicking the steering arrows you can center the enlarged photo exactly how you want it. This is fantastic for editing your photos.
This one arrived today and it was truly plug and play. I went through the MCE TV Signal Setup (for at least the 50th time) and MCE recognized that there was a settop box involved. The only problem I had was that when MCE got to the IR Receiver stage, it didn't see one. When I pluged the IR blaster cable into the box, MCE was happy. I let MCE do its configuration automatically and it "learned" 0, 3,4,5,6, 7 from the settop box remote and that was that.
The layout of the remote is nice. buttons are clearly labeled with words, not just symbols. The cheaper remote I had used all symbols and they were not self explanatory. Also, by contrast, the fast forward button is adequately separated from the skip forward button for fat fingers (same with reverse / skip backward). The back key is nicely separated. The number keys also have the letters on them for those of us who are not texting-savy.
The only downside was the lack of any documentation - no quick start guide, no user manual, no printed material whatsoever. The cheaper remote also had a built in mouse but for that, I just use the real mouse from my PC.

Works great and is not just for HP computers. Works on all machines with Vista and higher, not that I would recommend Windows 8.1, but works great on Windows 7 too!!Published 7 months ago by Scott A. Hansen
Works great with a NUC and OpenElec installed, no need for the IR receiver if your NUC has one built in.Published 11 months ago by Amro Al Jaberi
It's a basic MCE remote. Cannot program it to connect to other device and no backlighting, so not perfect.Published 13 months ago by Arthur
