The most intuitive remotes I have seen have had an intuitive and color coded layout to them. The Harmony remotes by far are the best remotes on the market. The Tivo remote is singularly the most intuitive remote I've ever used, both with buttons you can quickly learn to find without looking. The rectangular shape of the Gyration Air Music seems to be (from a design standpoint) about 15 years behind the curve. The obscure markings are not immediately obvious, and the LCD display, while a great concept, falls short with a very small type and an unimpressive backlighting that, while adequate, is lacking.
Having only used this remote for half a day I wouldn't say I've given it a fair shake; I'll update in a week or so, but at this point I have a feeling I'll end up giving a Harmony remote a try.
Updated review: After using for a month, I up the rating by one star. Though I stand by my initial impressions regarding button size, readability, etc., the hand held remote combining the mid-air gyro mouse just completely rocks. If you frequently find yourself wanting to minimize Media Center, then switch back to button control, this remote is singularly unique. Otherwise you may do better with a Harmony.
Several drawbacks exist though which combined make the product good but not great.
The iTunes control application is poorly designed by comparison to the iPod Remote application ([.....]). The application appears to load the entire iTunes library which takes a long time for a large library, and can run out of memory depending on the specs of your computer. Moreover, when the remote has been idle for some time, and you press the music button to view the iTunes library on the LCD screen, it takes a long time to "reload" the library. By contrast, the iPod Remote application is unaffected by the size of the iTunes library, and is a much better way to control iTunes than with this device. Finally, I have owned this remote for almost a year and Gyration has not released a software update for the iTunes control application.
The remote has a "volume punch through" feature which allows the volume / mute control to be always assigned to one of the IR components, e.g., the aux receiver. However, volume control doesn't punch through when you are controlling the PC, only when you are controlling one of the IR components. This means that you have to select, for example, Aux to adjust the volume on the receiver when you are watching a movie on the PC. Not a big deal...
Another limitation is that you must be logged on the PC via the console in order to control iTunes with the remote. So, for example, if you are logged in to the PC via Remote Desktop then you can't control iTunes. Again, not a huge deal...
The other obvious limitation is that you can only select three external components but that may be enough in many cases...
Overall, a good remote for those who have a Windows Media Center HTPC but the iTunes control is practically unusable for large libraries.
