Anyone tried this remote device for controlling their HTPC?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2075409950


Looks pretty slick. Right now I am using a full blown wireless keyboard (as I suppose many HTPC users are). For a basic HTPC a basic remote would be nice. I've also tried Interact's Wireless remote and track ball but it is a bit chinsy compared to my Acer wireless keyboard even though it is smaller. I gotta say, while those tablet PCs would score high on the geek appeal, they just don't seem too practical for controlling basic functions on an HTPC. Too power hungry and still rather large for a remote controlling device. PDA I can see though. This little credit card size remote does look pretty sweet! Just wondering if anyone has given it a roll.

Yeah, I picked a couple of them up from Computer Geeks for $4-5 each. They must be popular, they're up to $8 - http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=CIMR100


Some other place has them for a couple of bucks each but has a minimum order of $100. I forget who they are, I'd have to look them up.


So far I've used it with WinDVD. It works ok, but I'm not used to it and still prefer the keyboard. The mouse movement and clicking is kind of funky, but the basic operation buttons work pretty well.
