NVREMOTE

Next up is the NVRemote. The remote is extremely similar to ATIís Remote Wonder. This is due to both of them being manufactured by X10. The big dial controls the cursor, while the rest of buttons are pretty self explanatory and are most useful when viewing movies. The RF signals from the remote are received by a USB receiver.

The feel of the remote isnít as natural as one would hope. My biggest gripe is with the dial that pushes the cursor around. While itís very easy to use, the dialís response just feels sortaÖ weird. The dial works best when moving the cursor at 90 or 45 degree angles. Quickly changing the directions of the cursor also results in the cursorís movement pausing slightly, then speeding up in the new direction. Tweaking the mouse properties couldnít eliminate the slight pause either.

The range of the device is akin to your typical remote. Line of sight range surpasses 24 feet while obscured range proved to be about 20 feet. I obtained the last reading by placing the receiver unit behind the computer system, walking across the hall, closing both doors and moving the dial around. Quite a feat.
